|Graphic design and multimedia content development|
Capture your corporate identity and the quality of your company's products and services with professionally-designed logos, banners, buttons, backgrounds as well as scanned, retouched and web-optimized photographs and artwork. Your web-pages will come to life with Flash and Director animations and multimedia clips.
In concert with your web design, or as an project in itself, we can also develop striking artwork for your corporate or organization printed advertising and training materials.
|Web site design|
Launching an effective web site requires more than just copying an existing brochure onto a web page, but on the other hand it won't necessarily take hundreds of hours or thousands of dollars. Clearly, a company with the web presence of Amazon.com invests millions of dollars and has web development staffing numbering into the hundreds -- but for the largest percentage of firms, a far simpler site can be both appropriate and highly effective.
Your web site is like having a sidewalk and street in front of your store. If these don't exist, many prospective customers will never pay you a visit, or indeed, even be aware that you are in business. If weeds are growing rampantly from a cracked, unswept surface, the condition of that sidewalk may reflect poorly upon your organization. For many of your prospective clients your web site will be that first impression of your firm. A simple presence on the Internet is an unbeatable way to increase exposure, enhance organizational image, and gives you an opportunity to leverage your customer service resources to best advantage. It is, by far, the lowest cost way of gaining world-wide, 7-day-a-week, 24-hour-a-day exposure.
By having our professional
graphics and web design staff create your company's website, you can be
assured that your resources are being well-invested.
|Web site makeovers|
As anyone who has spent time browsing the internet can attest, not all web sites are effective.
many folks who represent themselves as web site developers are "all hat
and no cattle", and would have trouble hitting the ground with that big
hat even if they had three throws.
If your existing site or site developer is not meeting your expectations, ask us about a free courtesy evaluation. If your site needs a new look, navigational redesign, information update, or a shiny new logo or graphic, we stand by to provide the services you require.
|Web-Commerce and Database Applications|
Web commerce technologies
let you market your merchandise and services directly through your web
Web databases are
also useful in non-commerce settings to provide access to company databases
by browsers on the Internet or on private company intranets.
Ozone Ranch staff includes personnel with experience applying the technologies needed to empower your web site by the addition of a powerful database backend.
|Website maintenance and marketing|
There's more to a successful web site than just design and implementation. To be sure, that is an absolutely-necessary first step -- but for many sites, particularly commercial ones, interested folks may need help getting to it the first time.
If all of your
interested parties are reachable by traditional media, that may be a productive
means of letting them know your internet address, particularly if you
can piggyback that new bit of information into already-budgeted advertising
We also stand ready to be of service should your web site require updating or in the event that other changes are required.
|Arranging for domain and site hosting|
Unlike many other
design shops, we chose to leave the actual day-to-day operation of web
and application servers to folks who do nothing but that, day-in and day-out.
We do offer several
services related to overseeing the actual registration of your domain
name, arranging for the hosting of your site, setting up e-mail accounts,
e-commerce/secure ordering and configuring forwarding services. The particular
services you will require will vary depending on characteristics of your
proposed site. See our pricing page for specific information.
