Website Design & Development

LGD designs and builds websites using WordPress CMS framework that allows a business owner to maintain his/her own website content with minimal training.
After the site is built and tested, LGD schedules a training session with a customer to go over their site’s architecture, applicable tools, and any other aspects of website maintenance.
Considering, more and more people are accessing the Web via their mobile devices, LGD designs websites with the “responsive” concept in mind, allowing for the optimal viewing experience across a wide range of devices, including tablets, smart phones, as well as desktop computers.

Existing Site Redesign

If your site meets any or all of the criteria listed below, it is time to consider a redesign:

  • Your site’s images and/or content are outdated; the site lacks order or structure
  • You have to pay maintenance fees to have your site regularly updated, as it’s not built using a CMS framework
  • Your site has a lot of content, but lacks the ability to perform an internal site search; potential customers may not be able to find what they want easily
  • Your site and your blog are hosted under 2 separate domains, and you want to merge them together
  • Your competitor just launched a new and improved site
  • Your site doesn’t have the look or functionality that newer modern websites have

The necessity to redesign your site should be considered as an exciting opportunity to implement new ideas, features, and functionality. You might even consider redesigning your logo to give it a new edge as well!

We can help you:

  • obtain the domain name (if you don’t have one yet)

Obtaining Domain Name & Hosting

If you need assistance or advice in obtaining the new domain name for your website, or transferring your existing domain to the new ISP (Internet Service Provider aka hosting company), LGD can take care of it as well. We can also recommend a reliable hosting company for your website.

Website Maintenance

A good website needs regular or at least occasions maintenance, but if you don’t have time or the desire to do it, LGD can do that for you as well. Depending on the frequency of the updates, it can be set up as a monthly maintenance fee, or as needed for an hourly rate.

Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

While WordPress is SEO-friendly right out of the box, there are also a number of third-party plugins (both free and commercial) that can be installed on your website to further improve your site’s ranking. One important thing to keep in mind though: your site’s ranking won’t skyrocket in a week. It will take considerable time and effort over the course of several months: writing original content, obtaining inbound links from high quality websites, submitting online articles and press-releases. Maintaining unique and interesting content that people can comment on and share via social networks is one of the keys to improving your site’s rating.

Another great tool to consider along with SEO is Google Analytics, which is a free Web analytics service that provides statistics and basic analytical tools for your site’s (site’s visits, technology used, time on site, keywords used, referral traffic, and many more). The GA service is available to anyone with a Google account. WordPress framework makes it extremely easy to install a GA tracking number on the site and start gathering statistics.

Print Design

Logos, Business Cards and Stationery

LGD will work with you to create a meaningful and effective logo that encapsulates the essence and personality of your company. LGD usually designs several color logo variations, and will work with you to choose and refine the final version.
Once the logo is finalized, it can be incorporated into business cards, letterhead, envelopes, and other elements that comprise your company’s business identity. We can help you to put together the entire identity package.

Brochures, Fliers, Posters & Banners

A well-designed brochure is a great way to promote your business and generate interest in your company and services. Brochures can vary in size and layout (double-sided, tri-fold, etc.), depending on your personal preference and how much information you need to include. A brochure should include enough interesting content to make people visit your site for additional details.
Flyers are similar in size to the brochures, and usually promote a certain event or a special offer.
Posters and banners are also very effective in sending out your message to the targeted audience – they are big in size, and can be seen from afar. With effective text, images and graphics, they can immediately turn heads.

Other Design Elements – Print and Electronic
