Custom Website Design

Custom Web Development That Serves Your Every Need

There is nothing more exciting than building your website from the ground up.  One Web Company offers custom website design to meet your exact needs for a new website.  We will work with you to capture your design concept and blend that with best practices in website implementation to help convert your visitors into your customers.

Our custom website designs may be deployed across a wide variety of content management systems, as well as custom developed websites.  At One Web Company, we focus on two principle platforms for Content Management, Joomla and Mod-X.  Our standard development platform is in a LAMP - Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP environment; for custom development, we use the Zend Framework. 

Once your site is completed, we can host your site, or deploy your site to your own hosting solution.  For more information on hosting, please visit One Web Company Hosting.

Custom Website design and development starts with an understanding of your business goals for your website.  At One Web Company, we work with you to define your business goals before commencing on your design.  

Website Design Challenges and Solutions

Developing websites is a careful balance between making a site attractive to view while remaining functional and easy to use.  It is a natural blend of Art and Science.  The best websites offer an eye pleasing, easy to read presentation of content, while at the same time enticing visitors to give you information about themselves to become new leads for your business.  We start with the simple questions such as:

  • What is the purpose of your website? 
  • What are the business goals you hope to accomplish with your website?
  • What are the marketing goals you have for your website?
  • How will you measure the success of your website?
  • What is your target demographic? 

These five questions will help to define the structure of your website and provide clues to the design.  One Web Company will work with you to define the look, feel and functional display of your website before it is ever handed to a designer. 

As we move through the design phase of your project, we will always provide you with our professional opinion on the design and its direction.  However, the final decision on design is yours.  At One Web Company, our goal in the design process is to develop a website that you like and want to show off to your business associates, customers and visitors, while also delivering an effective marketing tool for your company. 

Website Development - Implementing Your Design

Upon completion, we will implement your design.  Depending upon previous discussions, we will pursue the development in one of two ways:

  • Open Source Content Management System
    • Joomla CMS
    • Word Press CMS
    • Mod-X CMS
  • Custom Development
    • Zend Framework
    • Cake PHP 
    • PHP and custom templating system

For E-commerce systems, we offer several solutions as well:

  • Joomla and Virtuemart for small to medium businesses
  • Prestashop for medium businesses
  • Magento for medium to large businesses

During the custom website development process, One Web Company uses "Best of Breed" development.  Our philosophy is simple, we try not to re-invent the wheel by utilizing customizable pre-built software when possible and building custom systems when needed. 

Website Redesign/Upgrade

One Web Company also offers redesign and upgrade services for your existing website.  We offer a wide range of website redesign services that will preserve your current page rank and Search Engine Rankings, including:

  • Review of your current site for improvements to convert visitors into potential clients
  • Updates to your website, changing colors, adding graphics and banners
  • Updates to your content, including adding pages and text
  • Converting your existing site to a content management system
  • Adding or integrating Social Media information such as Facebook Like and Share for pages of your website.

As the first impression of your business, your website is very important.  If your site is not easy to use, fast and presents information well, your visitors will let you know by leaving.  In the last few years, people's online expectations have skyrocketed.  Your visitors will be quick to leave any website that does not keep up!  If a website does not meet their expectations, a majority of visitors will leave and never return.  Updating your website helps to capture those potential customers!

  • Attract new customers by creating a design that promotes your business
  • Show what separates you from your competition
