Web Design

website1

At Mean Communications, we consider web design to the be the beautiful balance between art and science. You need a creative or unique ethos, yet a simple-to-navigate structure. You want your website to be visually appealing, but still search engine friendly. It needs to look like a million bucks, but you only have a budget for half of the cost others are bidding. We work on a whole range of websites, from NGOs and advocacy pages, to start-ups and artist websites. We see budgets from $500 to $50,000. However, our particular sweet spot is in the middle, as we find few firms offer quality design work in the $4,000-$20,000 range. That’s where we thrive.  We also are keen on mobile technology, from mobile-friendly versions of your website, to app design for the iOS, Android, and Windows (sorry Blackberry). We’re designing for the future.

Also a special note: We notice some design firms only offer use of their own content management systems, and refuse to use standard platforms like WordPress or Joomla. We think that’s BS. What this does is make you depending on your design firms for changes down the road, and makes it nearly impossible for other firms to build off of the previous work that’s been done. While we can do custom work for you, we highly suggest only using standard platforms, and we train you and your team to use them, so that you can easily edit your own website content, or hire another firm to add onto it in the future. We’re nice like that.
