So much more than just simple web design.
Your site represents you
Yes, it sounds so contrived, but it really is true. People are bombarded with information when they enter the web, as they should be - that's what the Internet is all about. Next comes the process of elimination, rooting out the unwanted and finding what one is searching for. When a site is accessed, the viewer reacts in seconds. Do I trust this? Is this current information? Is this company credible? Does this "feel right?" When the answer is no to any of these, the viewer promptly exits, and the site is immediately forgotten.
Slick Demon doesn't just take your information and re-type it to the Internet, we educate ourselves as much as possible on what you do, who you are and what you are trying to convey so that we can construct your site in a manner that best represents you to your target audience. Designing in this manner helps Slick Demon to provide and correctly place content that is relevant to your audience, which in turn helps to grab and focus their attention on you.
To be remembered
Slick Demon has many "main goals" when faced with the first steps of a website design, but one in particular can sometimes be forgotten in a client's race to get information on-line. Creations that are unique and have the ability to give your audience a bit of entertainment, while dishing out what can be very dull information, are proven to help lock you and your content into a viewer's mind. This is why Slick Demon is here. We perform massive brainstorming before a project starts to discover how we can apply the Slick Demon touch to your site to help you be remembered by your audience.
Custom content management systems
What is a content management system? To explain it simply and relevant to our purposes, a content management system (CMS) is a coded set of instructions that allows a client to update and change content through a user friendly interface. For example, if a client wants to update a news section or add more products to an e commerce site, a CMS is designed so that said client can make these changes without having to know or change any coding, and without the cost of aid from a web developer.
Slick Demon creates all of our sites from raw, handwritten code. As we create our sites, we listen to the client to see if there are areas that will need to be updated on a regular basis, and then if needed, write a custom CMS specifically for that task. Creating a CMS this way allows the CMS to be stripped down to make updating tasks more obvious, or very complex in a client specific way.
