Web Design and Development
WordPress Website Design
Our web design and development use WordPress child themes to give each client a unique website. Powerful designs, modern functionality, and user-friendly WordPress site layouts tailored to your business. WordPress is our content management platform of choice.
Mobile First Web Design
As the web becomes more and more mobile-focused, your site won't be left behind. All our new builds are made to be fully responsive and phone-friendly.
Web Design Speed Optimized
Our sites are optimized for speed from the very start of development to deliver your content at the speed of now.
Web Design Includes SEO
Doesn’t matter how awesome your website is, if no one can find it, it’s useless. Having great content on your website is more important than ever to attract visitors to your site. All our sites have some basic SEO Principles and Practices built-in.
WordPress Web Security
Security should be on every website owner’s mind these days. You need to have something in place to help thwart most normal attacks. There are a wide variety of plugins and security suites that will help keep your website up and running.
Content development and search engine optimization for organic searches and local business directory listings.
E-commerce and shopping cart solutions built on trusted technology, fully secure and ready to take orders.
UX/UI Testing Process
Our User Experience and User Interface (UX/UI) testing follow a detailed testing checklist for each page on the website. Depending on the type of page this would be 30 to 100 specific checks.
We create simple yet beautiful designs and then develop them into a tool that will help you reach your goals - whatever they are. We use WordPress because of its flexibility, usability, and because it has become the industry standard for Content Management Systems - currently over 30% of the entire web.
All our sites are built the following features:
- Strategically designed to meet your needs and achieve your goals
- Responsive Mobile Friendly designs that work on all devices
- Easy for you to update
- Easy for site visitors to navigate and find what they need
- Local SEO setup included

Our Design and Development Process
Design & Build
Marginally the most important phase of our time together. Here we'll ask the right questions to uncover the (sometimes hidden) truth about why you need a new website. Together we will find out exactly what it is you're trying to achieve. It's true some of these questions may seem a little uncomfortable, but, if it doesn't get a little awkward, then chances are we are not digging deep enough.
Once we have all the information we need, we'll build a visual sitemap so we can all get on the same page about your new website. We will begin to see what it is you're trying to communicate and the best way to structure the information for your potential customers.
Now we know a sitemap doesn't look like much. That's where the prototype comes in. Instead of trying to tell you what we intend to build and hoping you understand our jargon, we will build an interactive prototype (a stripped down website) in the browser to show you how our solution will work. At this point, we will pay no attention to design. It's not pretty, but it gets us close really quickly.
The Design & Build
The design is where things get fun. The design stage is exciting because we get to play with the colors, imagery, and emotion. By applying our creative process, we get to bring your interactive prototype to life, all the while ensuring that our design matches your brand identity and tone of voice.
Delivery is where the rubber meets the road. After the design is approved, we will go underground for a couple of weeks to make sure everything is working smoothly and tested before deploying your new completed website to your hosting server so you can show it off and start promoting.
Why go it alone? Unlike major WYSIWYG website builders who give you tons of tools but no help, with us, you get to speak to an actual person here at Hoye Web Consulting. Our staff is here to help you with support by email, and by phone.
