Website Design & Development
Designs By Dave O. is a team of creative, talented and passionate professionals who specialize in responsive website design. We’re a collaborative group with an extraordinary range of skills for every project.
Your website will showcase your business, products and services, be easy and intuitive to use, and increase online search results. Because we work with you in partnership, your online presence will be real which gives your prospective customers a memorable experience.
We build engaging sites that best reflect your business and welcome your customers.
User Interface, Experience and Design
We start from scratch on every single site we design. We put a huge amount of thought and planning into making sure your customers have a positive user experience, while representing your business with a unique look and feel that fits your style preferences and target demographics.
We begin with the home page; once that’s approved, we mock up every other key page of the site to make sure each important detail will be accounted for. We’ve found this to be the most efficient way to avoid spending extra time and money during the coding and programming processes that follow.
Front-End Web Development
We hand-code virtually all of our web development projects from the ground up, and we adhere to search-engine-friendly, standards-compliant techniques. We prefer coding responsive, CSS-based, table-less designs for maximum scalability. We don’t just code our own designs either—we work in conjunction with other graphic designers, marketing firms and advertising agencies to convert their designs into beautiful, pixel-perfect code.
Back-End Database Programming
We work with PHP/MySQL almost exclusively for all of our back-end programming work, and most of our websites use PHP in some way, shape or form. We specialize in custom content management systems and heavy database web programming for robust website applications. Basically, we can code entire backend systems from scratch, or customize most existing open source applications that are based in PHP.
Whether you need a custom CMS for your site, an intranet, a special piece of functionality or something custom, we most likely have an obscene amount of experience programming something similar.
