Custom Website design and website development
We create websites for brands that strive to be unforgettable. Websites are often the first piece of your brand that customers see and your unique niche needs to be communicated in seconds. We often tell our clients to think of their websites as a center of a spiderweb with all paths – email, social media, advertising, packaging, marketing – pointing to your site. From websites to brand strategy we help clients increase engagement, collect leads and drive traffic to their sites.
All websites include
Each website project involves 6 steps to create the accurate visual presentation of your company’s unique personality.
Phase 1: Planning
Based on conversations with you, a brand review, and a strategy questionnaire, we develop a plan to target your audience. This phase also includes research into your competitor’s designs.
Phase 2: Concept Design Development
In this creative phase, three design options will be created for the home page as jpegs. This is also where we will present a first round sitemap for the website. All designs will show off your unique brand.
Phase 3: Design Refinement
Changes based on your feedback.
Phase 4: Web development + Entering Content
Once a final design direction is approved, we will create a test website on our server. We will set up each page based on the content (photos and text) that your team provides. Content can be delivered with a shared Dropbox folder.
Each website we program is responsive (auto adjusts between desktop, tablets and smartphones) and is built using the latest website trends, like sticky navigation. As more and more people turn to search engines and smartphones to find businesses, you can’t afford not to have a website that works across all platforms – phone, tablets and desktop computers.
Phase 5: Website Refinement
This is the phase that your team will review the website and tell us what you do and do not like. We tweak the website until you are 100% happy.
Phase 6: Website goes live
Once a final test website is approved and we have your hosting and domain information, we will go live with the website. In general we prefer to go live on websites Tuesday – Thursday. All websites will have Google Analytics added along with a plugin that allows you to enter your own SEO. Once live, we offer up to 1 hour of training – on the phone or via Skype. Plus, provide a PDF and video that can be referenced on how to make changes in the future.

Beautiful design is just one piece of what we focus on at Bauerhaus. Equally important is the web development (programming) of the website. We work with a team of developers to make sure every site behaves itself in different browsers and platforms.
Here are a few of the sites that the we have designed and developed:
Our clients tell us:
“I really loved the video tutorial you provided.” Steve Leek, Owner of Leek and Company
“Becca is the consummate professional and a delight to work with! My business partner and I are not “fluent” in the tech world, by any means, and Becca always spoke to us in easy-to-understand, respectful terms and tones. She brought savvy consideration to design options as well as functionality, keeping our brand’s tone and client base top of mind.” – Sarah Bowen Shea, Owner of Mother Runner Store
