Web Design & Development
The Internet is the great equalizer. It allows small companies to successfully compete in a local and global environment. This all starts with a website that just isn’t beautiful and creative – but one that is finely tuned and effective.
Your Digital Experience
All of our websites are hand-crafted from the ground up resulting in a presences that stands the test of time while delivering real-time and impactful results. We start with a healthy dose of discovery and strategy to ensure that the path we select is sound and backed with an analytical approach. Our carefully selected process guides you from discovery, to creative, to implementation, to public launch. Learn more about our process. We research forward design trends as the base for our creative stage. We’re not trendy just to be trendy, but we look at what the digital world is demanding and we serve it up in a way that is thoughtful while creative. We give you and your team options to open up the playbook to find what works best to combine your goals and your audience’s needs.
Digging through code to update content is as archaic as emailing your “webmaster” to put up a press release. It’s why we empower each of our clients with a fully functioning content management system. Our philosophy is simple – when you own your site, you can leverage that presence for the ultimate good of your business. After all, that’s why you build it, right? We’re multi-disciplined on the development approach with skill from across the landscape in content management systems. Your project will feature a robust content management system as a standard enabling you and your team to own the website moving forward. Adding or editing content is a cinch. We have a wealth of experience with WordPress and Drupal but always approach each project with an open mind to what you need.
End-to-End and Turn Key
When your project wraps up, it’s done. Completely done. Not half done. Not half baked. Not almost done or not quite there. Every pixel has been placed, every t has been crossed and every i has been dotted (unless it’s capitalized, of course). Our solutions are completely turn key. Get in the car. Go for a drive. Show off to your friends. Scare your competitors. Show off what you do best. Doing that allows us to show off what we do best. It’s what we do. It’s why we serve. It’s how we’re wired.
Our agile web design and development process guides you and us through a deep and thorough discovery process. We’re not simply a one-trick pony with adept skills at creative and code. Our mindful approach ensures that the end product is aesthetically pleasing and tuned to yield results.
All of our hand-crafted websites are mobile friendly. And it’s not just friendly – it’s the life of the mobile party. Everyone wants to see and be seen with it.
Each of our creations automatically renders itself based on the available screen size of the device viewing it. The concept is called responsive web design. Your website will morph seamlessly between a desktop or a laptop to a tablet to a smartphone. You would be wrong to ignore mobile devices with 1 in every 3 Internet visits coming from a one.
Nearly 1 in 3 visits to websites worldwide come from a mobile device.

Communication Is Key
O3 adopts the agile web development process for all of our projects. We understand that the process you’re about to go down is full of discovery. Concepts that may not have been considered during the infancy of the project are not disregarded in later phases of the process.
We keep all ideas on the table moving forward. We have routine checkups with you to ensure that you’re aware of our progress and we’re aware of yours. We’ll debrief each checkup with a list of ideas that need further exploration and eventual implementation.
Our process is collaborative. Both our team and yours hold the keys to a successful product. We’re in constant communication with you to ensure that all ideas are vetted and put on the table. The end result is a thorough presence from top to bottom.
Selling your products online is complicated. Fortunately, not for you. We’ll handle the details. E-Commerce additions are one of the more typical addons to our web design and development packages.
We’ve handled all sorts of products from physical, tangible things like tobacco pipes, bimini tops, and health supplements to subscriptions like meal plans, to digital like pharmaceutical research documents. We work with each of our clients to outline the best approach to taking a product online.
Our process is PCI-compliant we use industry standard methods to safely and securely process credit card transactions.
Our Web Design Process
Strategy, Research & Planning
While we firmly believe that all projects are different, we always begin our process the same way: with questions. Why are people coming to your website? What are they looking for? How can we leverage activity to meet your goals? Who is your competition and what are they doing online? How are they successful or unsuccessful? What websites do you find inspirational in your field of work? What are your aspirations for the design?
By collecting this information, we can begin to outline and define your website. From here we know what you expect from us and we can begin sketching and piecing together assets to capture your project’s aesthetic. This preliminary process is vital to our creative process. Learn more about how we develop your digital strategy.
Architecture & Prototyping
Once we have a clear direction on where to drive your project, we get to work. We’ll begin forming simple wireframes depicting the vision of your website, prototyping every template your site needs. These wireframes will define the overall structure and layout for your website. Every website needs to be navigated and this process gives you a feel of how your visitors will experience your new site.
After successfully structuring your project’s general feel, it’s time for the part everybody loves—the design itself. Following our research and wireframes closely, we’ll dig deep into Creative Suite and begin carefully putting pixels to screen. This process is lengthy (we strive for perfection, which takes time), but as the design begins to take shape, the beauty of your new site will begin to unfold.
Once we’re completely ecstatic with the design and feel comfortable with it being a perfect match for your company, we’ll present the work to you.
After approval of the design, we begin the process of bringing the art to life for publication on the web. We work diligently to successfully marry art and code to ensure a robust and standards compliant website that will work with all modern operating systems and browsers. The content management system is implemented during this phase. Each subset of text is analyzed and placed inside the content management system for future changes that will not require any coding knowledge.
Once the code is put into place, we will stage a test website that will be a fully functional version of your eventual website.
We will launch your website once every word has been written, every pixel has been placed and after final approval by your team.
