Hawaii Web Design for the everyday person  

Everyone and there mom residing on the Islands needs a website for some project, business, school, organization or non-profit.

Now the question doesn't become if I hire someone to do my Hawaii web design it becomes when I hire someone for my Hawaii web design who will it be and why.

Its funny because just 5 years ago even the Hawaii web designers didn't have fancy web sites or 20 social media pages. Its become an increasing demand that even the smallest project pop up multiple web pages for people to view the information. Almost as if websites are now a virtual flier.

Hiring a Hawaii Web Design team is a bit different then shopping for a home entertainment center complete with a large flat screen TV, its not a physical object that you can go to a store down the street; walk in and view, touch buttons and play with the picture and sound. Hiring Hawaii web design is similar to hiring a contractor to build your home you get to watch as the foundation is laid, the walls go up, the roof is laid and the landscaping planted. Except with a website this happens not just in one location but from any device with an internet connection anywhere in the world, wow!

Hawaii web design will be one of your best word of mouth and marketing resources to tell people about what you are doing or offering. At this point you don't even need to go an office or make an appointment to show the website, you meet someone the conversation moves into interest about what your up to and you or them can pop up the web page on there Ipad or cell phone. That brings up a crucial point and that's that you must have a web presence that's mobile friendly. In other words no matter the screen resolution your viewer can see your website clearly.

Because of the amount of time, education, software and adaptation required to complete a Hawaii web design with mobile ability, shopping cart ability, social media plug-ins, multiple pages of content, contact and opt in form linked to an auto responder, and the list continues.
You're kidding yourself if
A) you think you can do it yourself or
B) you think you can get all that for under $1,000.

Fortunately most companies only require a 25% - 50% down to get started. Please know customers that have attempted to spend hours reading and price shopping have ended up with huge headaches, buckets of wasted time and makeshift websites that they weren't happy with. Do yourself and your brand a favor and pay for a quality Hawaii web design website. You do always get what you pay for and years of experience will always outweigh a cheap hack job.

Mobile first

Responsive Web Design (RWD)

Responsive web design (RWD) is a web design approach aimed at crafting sites to provide an optimal viewing experience—easy reading and navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling—across a wide range of devices (from mobile phones to desktop computer monitors).

A site designed with RWD adapts the layout to the viewing environment by using fluid, proportion-based grids, flexible images, and CSS3 media queries.

  • The fluid grid concept calls for page element sizing to be in relative units like percentages, rather than absolute units like pixels or points.
  • Flexible images are also sized in relative units, so as to prevent them from displaying outside their containing element.
  • Media queries allow the page to use different CSS style rules based on characteristics of the device the site is being displayed on, most commonly the width of the browser.

Server-side components (RESS) in conjunction with client-side ones such as media queries can produce faster-loading sites for access over cellular networks and also deliver richer functionality/usability avoiding some of the pitfalls of device-side-only solutions.

In addition to RWD we also specialize in:

Audience and Device Aware (ADA)

Audience and Device Aware is an approach aimed at ensuring that a site is optimized to deliver what a user wants and that works effectively on the device being used to access the site.

Unlike Responsive web design (RWD) which crafts a site visually for a range of devices, ADA aims to reflect the many different elements that enhance and impact on the performance and usability of a site.

The predominant application for the ADA approach is for mobile and smaller screen devices. The principle truly sees the adoption of a “mobile first” strategy and focuses on the performance of a site and value that it delivers to a user and the business.
