We are a high-quality custom design house with offices in Toronto, Montreal, and Ottawa and we specialize in web design. We are great at what we do because we are passionate about empowering our clients with design work that best represent them; affordably.




HIGH QUALITY

High Quality is about approaching each project in honesty. It requires that the creative process we engage in be calibrated by an honest discussion about our capabilities and how they fit the project’s true objectives.

High quality is also about respect. The elements we co-create with our clients belong to them and are built to serve them. High Quality requires us to respect this reality; that things we build must be useful and help our clients Achieve.

AFFORDABLE

High Quality design doesn’t need to be expensive. If executed intelligently, consciously, and soberly, a design initiative can achieve tremendous results in communicating a brand message effectively.

The goal is never to make something cheap nice, but always to make something elegant affordable.

Affordable means reasonably priced. Budgets matter!

CUSTOM

Our clients often compete for the attention of their audience with numerous competing companies.

The impression our client’s projects have on their audience should speak of the uniqueness of their project. That is why, unlike many design companies, we never use templates.

Using premade templates is a widespread practice in the industry and really serves to make the job of the designers easier rather than to give clients a great product.

Everything we build is tailor made and built from scratch to convey that unique message you try to communicate to your audience. We believe only custom work can accomplish that at a high level.

WEB DESIGN

Design is a language we use to communicate things, generate action, inform, or cultivate understanding. Effective communication generates the desired effect for you.

The web serves as a powerful window for your audience to discover what sets you apart, what makes you useful, and worthy of their attention and “dollar-votes”. We are passionate about everything that pertains to effectively communicative web design.

We design with purpose; we design from your perspective and that of your audience!

MADE LOCALLY

Another highly spread practice in the industry is to outsource the work mandated to the design company, usually to third-world workforce located in places such as India or the Philippines. This is only partially done for your benefit and mainly to increase profit margins of the design company.

We don’t outsource design work. All our design work is done in-house, under the supervision of our expert designers.

Besides arguments about the social importance of supporting local economies, outsourcing is an inadequate design practice for several reasons. The truth is that the greater the distance between the client and the designer, the greater the chance that there will be “creative distortion”.

More importantly, as stated previously, design is a language that must be mastered with an understanding of the audience it is meant to reach. Local markets and audiences speak a language—social & cultural—full of subtleties and references that are impossible to acutely grasp by someone living outside of those markets.

Our work is produced by individuals who have experienced, been shaped by, and that possess an intimate knowledge of the environment and audience you are targeting. We speak their language.

  • HOW CAN GREAT WEB DESIGN HELP MY BUSINESS ?

We have a creative and effective approach to developing online content and structuring information about your company. We make web sites that are accessible and effective in marketing you business.
    HOW DOES THE FINANCING OPTION WORK ?

    We know that budgeting is important for any business. We want to establish long-term relationships with our clients, and we try to help grow your venture as much as we can on a budget. That is why we developed a financing option where costs of our web programming can be distributed over up to 12 months. This allows you to still get the perfect website and strategy while remaining financially flexible.
    HOW DO I CHOOSE THE RIGHT PACKAGE FOR ME ?

    Your project objectives are important in deciding the right website design package. Our team is also experienced in business management and marketing, and we can help identify and explain how different options can help further your goals. We do an inventory of your needs: business, marketing, sales, etc.; then we design a plan custom for you that will create a high quality affordable, custom web design.
    HOW FAST CAN I HAVE MY WEBSITE ONLINE ?

    Our work schedule can start at two weeks for smaller project. The speed of the project depends on the scope and research: content, media, etc. We are careful not to rush, but we are also well practiced and efficient in what we do. After initial consultation, our web designer will quickly provide you with an estimate that includes a timeline for the web page design project, which includes pre launch marketing activities. Web site design involves Launch and post launch phases. There is much that can be done to promote your business even before the fully operational website is launched.
    HOW MUCH ACCESS WILL I HAVE TO THE DESIGN TEAM ?

    Our web designers and design team is available in each of the markets we operate in (Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa) and always can be reached to hear your ideas and collaborate on the project. Our process is very participative, because the website that our team of designers create is the online representation of your vision. The more of your contribution we can get, the better we can realize your vision.
    HOW MUCH MARKET RESEARCH IS INVOLVED IN WEBSITE DEVELOPMENT ?

    In order to build a great web page for your business, we need to understanding who else is competing for your audience’s attention online and how they succeed in doing so. We look at a website as part of a comprehensive marketing strategy. Before determining how to best represent your company, we first have we conduct market research to get a feel of dominant and effective practices in the industry. Once we get a sound understanding how your industry is behaving online, we can innovate new ways to reach your target market. Our familiarity with the Toronto, Montreal and Ottawa markets helps us to understand all the nuances involved in appealing to potential customers.
