The #1 Thing We Love About Web Design:

The ability to impact different people from different cultures on different devices from all over the world.


Is there a web campaign from the last year that inspired you or a classic campaign that you draw inspiration from?


What is the one web design project you are proudest of? Why?

We are so proud of our website for the North Carolina Council on Developmental Disabilities. The original site wasn’t telling this advocacy agency’s story of it being a statewide agency for NC’s disability community. After our branding efforts were done, we transformed the site that is dynamic, energetic and informative to the disability community in North Carolina. We used powerful photography, clean and concise copy to enhance user experience and make NCCDD a go-to resource for people with disabilities, their families and other community members. Most importantly, the site is also Section 508 compliant – or accessible to assistive technology such as screen readers so it can be accessible to all.

Through this site, NCCDD is becoming a thought leader for the disability community in the state, and it makes us proud that we could translate the amazing work our client is doing and bring it to life through a powerful website.

A website is the first thing people visit to learn about your brand. Great design that effectively tells your brand story requires a lot of planning and effort to result in an end product that provides a great user experience and content that engages the target audience.
