Here at Leap Forward, we believe in the following principles that enable us to provide you with the best results as we develop a website for your business:
Customer Service: Customer service seems to be lacking among other companies these days, but Leap Forward believes it is one of the most—if not the most—important aspects of doing business. Strong communication builds trust, which is necessary for a productive client-designer relationship.
Navigation: Your website’s navigation should be clear, easy to follow, and offer your visitors an accurate indication of what you have to offer. We’ll make sure to point your visitors in the right direction as quickly as possible, since we know there are other competing websites for them to choose from.
Design: Your site’s design must cater to your target customers. Leap Forward makes sure to learn all about your company, your clients, your goals and objectives, and how you stand out from your competitors before beginning the design stage. The design needs to clearly identify what your company has to offer and show your visitors why they should choose you. We will take these factors into account to create a unique and original design that stands out from the others.
Visual Flow: The graphics and content of your site should easily guide visitors through the information on your website. We at Leap Forward understand how potential customers view and interact with websites, and we will make certain your website directs visitors where you want them to go.
Color Usage: On a website, all colors convey different meanings. They can be used to set a certain mood and accentuate visual art. At Leap Forward, we are experts at working with color and fine-tuning combinations that complement each other to effectively express the appropriate message for your industry and customer type.
Consistency: Leap Forward uses consistent design elements. Although different designs can be created for different pages, keeping certain elements consistent is crucial to visitors becoming familiar with and remembering your site. For example, it’s important to keep navigation the same on all the pages. Using methods like that to maintain consistency helps visitors to quickly move around and interact with your site with ease.
Browser Compatibility: Leap Forward tests web pages in different browsers and screen resolutions to ensure the website’s format will be consistent and reliable, regardless of the user’s computer, browser type, and screen resolution, or even if they’re using a cell phone or tablet.
At Leap Forward we design quality websites to spark interest in your products and services. Our websites are search engine friendly and load quickly to enhance user experience for your potential and existing customers. We additionally offer a variety of graphic design services including print collaterals and marketing materials. Although we specialize in designing websites for the hearing loss community based on our sister community site (DeafandHoH.com), our expertise will absolutely benefit any company looking for a new website. That’s what we do at Leap Forward web design, and we do it better than anyone else.
We’ve seen too many local agencies and design firms discuss numbers, marketing strategies, and storytelling with words and dazzling pictures of employees in the workplace participating in fun activities. It may seem like a clever way to describe their personality, approach, and image but there’s one major flaw: their portfolio pieces lack creativity. Do the designs look modern and trendy? Are they unique, or do they look similar to other designs on the internet? Creativity and high-end designs are ultimately what will draw your target audience to your website. And that’s what really counts to get you new business.
Here at Leap Forward, we’ve learned that many small businesses are in need of a better website. Unfortunately, many of them end up spending significant portions of their budgets to hire an experienced company that really doesn’t deliver the best results. Then, they’re left with no choice but to settle for a sub-par webpage or to seek out a new marketing company.
“Leap Forward” simply means we’ll take your preliminary design concept even further to deliver excellent results. We offer creative designs that will appear on your computer/mobile/tablet screen and printed pieces. Everything will fall into place and your business will not only be doing something right, but will also be doing it better than anyone else.
