Today’s Business market requires a company to have not only a clean and attractive image on the web but also a website that reduces customer friction, increases customer engagement and most importantly is user friendly across not only desktop but mobile applications.
You’re running a successful business and you have great ideas, it’s time for your website to reflect that. That’s where we can help with our WordPress expertise. Our WordPress themes are responsive, which means they will automatically adapt to mobile devices like iPhones and iPads. Having the right blueprint is imperative to success. WDS leads the way by using WordPress to architect and build cutting edge web and mobile experiences.
Research & Strategy
We engage multiple disciplines and work in order to gain a full understanding of what the ultimate success story is for your project, because everything we do goes back to that.
IA & Wireframes
The best way to execute our strategy is within a rapid format, such as wireframes. We want to move things around quickly to develop the best placement for every major element of your website and define what interaction makes the most sense for your visitors.
Design & User Experience
We develop our wireframe structure into fully designed visual files. We’re a bit distinct here; the traditional agency model is to deliver 2–3 visual concepts. We found that with this approach there are always “throw-away” designs. Not wanting to waste anyone’s time, we invest all our resources into one concept and make it as good as possible. But don’t worry, if you’re not satisfied—we do it again—with no additional fees.
WordPress is used by some of the most widely recognized brands in the world such as CNN, CBS New York, Harvard Business Review, Boise State University, New York Times, Dole, Glad, Mercedes-Benz and Vogue. Boom.
Think of it this way: If WordPress is good enough for the Library of Congress, government sites in the U.S. and Great Britain, and the U.S. military, it’s probably robust enough for your needs, too.
As of August 2015, WordPress powers nearly one in four sites on the Web – and of all sites that use a CMS, WordPress is the choice of more than 80%. In 2014, WordPress remained the fastest-growing CMS for the fifth year straight.
WordPress is, by far, the most popular open source Content Management System (CMS), used by approximately 75 million websites. WordPress holds the largest CMS market share by far, and currently accounts for over a quarter of all websites. As a result, many users are already familiar with the WordPress CMS, requiring less staff training when building a new site. WordPress is popular because it meets the demands of many users with its flexible framework, which allows designers and developers to create and modify layouts and applications. Coupled with user-generated extensions, websites are no longer limited by enterprise extensions.
For a successful brand or company today it’s important to provide your visitors an experience on your web site that is accessible by all, and that means across all devices including desktop, tablet, and mobile. Getting there is no easy task and with all the new devices being released at a rapid pace (almost daily!) it’s hard to keep up the pace unless your website is fully responsive in all environments. We approach all projects with a ‘mobile-first’ approach that allows your website and content to adapt to screens of many sizes.
One website adapts to all mobile devices, saving you time and money! With mobile browsing surpassing desktop in 2015, and mobile-friendliness becoming an official Google ranking factor in April, creating a mobile-friendly website is no longer optional: it’s a necessity. It all starts with responsive web design.
WordPress is the perfect platform for launching an online store and selling products. We have built large-scale, enterprise eCommerce solutions for our clients, so we know and ins and outs of developing a platform to sell online.
