Website Design & Development

Having your website be memorable is equally if not more important than having it be searchable. At Grassroots, our aim is to develop custom websites with the look and feel of a recognized name brand.

We accomplish this by focusing on several key elements:

Theme
A well executed theme captures the essence of a brand. In order to create a memorable identity, the way in which the message is communicated is highly important. Grassroots accomplishes this by creating Theme – a holistic blending of elements such as logo, colors, fonts, graphics, layout and functionality.

Whether using existing brand elements, modifying and modernizing them or designing newly from scratch, Grassroots will synthesize all components of your brand into a cohesive theme that is sure to captivate and engage.

Graphic Design
Grassroots provides custom graphics to give your website a holistic feel. We can concept and design web graphics, logos, flyers, posters, business cards and other printed materials to give your brand a consistent look and feel – no matter where you are seen.

Multimedia and Blogging
Artist? Musician? Media Mogel? Grassroots will empower you to express yourself to the world with sophisticated content management systems (CMS) designed to get your message out. Grassroots will suggest the best platform to effectively display your blog topics, articles, music, photography or video and customize a front-end experience unique to your brand.

Each project will be designed with the ability for the Client to self-publish and edit content. While you will always have the support of our team, you will be in control of your information.

The primary CMS that we use is WordPress, chosen for its security, reliability, flexibility and usability. This highly stable open source platform is highly respected within the developer community and serves as a solid foundation from which to display and administer content. Should you have the need, you will receive a basic tutorial on how to operate your administration panel.

Brand Identity Consultation
Grassroots works closely with our Clients throughout the entire website design process. Our goal is to bring your vision to life. Grassroots will begin each project by assessing core values – qualities which guide every aspect of your business and appeal most to your target audience. in other words, what makes you, you. While there may seem to be a lot of competition within your niche, there is always a hidden gem that sets you apart from the rest.

Together, we will explore these values and determine a strategy to design, develop and promote your brand from the ground up.
