Since 1999, when we began building websites, we have learned 4 basic truths about web design.
1) Design is HIGHLY SUBJECTIVE.
2) Clients need the option to manage their site content if they choose.
3) Web sites must be readable by humans and search engines.
4) Web sites must change, grow and evolve with a client's business and technology.
Given this, we utulize open source content management systems and follow the process below when custom designing a website.
1) We help clients define their short and long term objectives of their website.
2) We ask clients to find three, or more, sites they like the design of.
3) Based on items 1 & 2, we work with clients to design a site to their brand aesthtetic, objectives and budget.
Through the process we advise and train clients on a variety of issues such as usability, hosting, search engine optimization, cross browser compatibility, scalability, post launch marketing and management, etc.
By the end of the process, our clients have a web site custom designed and built to their brand aesthetic, objectives and budget. Additionally, they can manage their sites content themselves if they choose. And, of course, the sites are readable by humans and search engines. Combined, all of these elements allow for their website to change, grow and evolve with their company and technology.

In short, this means it is FREE. You pay us to custom design, build and train you to use your new CMS website. Additionally, because the code is open source, you OWN the code. In lay terms, using open source is the difference between RENTING vs OWNING. If, at any time, you desire to change developers or bring management in-house, you are free to do so.
What can I do with Joomla
