web design & development

our philosophy : Visual impact drives our design process with a focus on site usability and visibility. We want visitors to easily find your website, get the information they want, and get it quickly. Search engine optimization (SEO), fast loading pages and intuitive navigation are always in style.

what's hot and what's not : Web technologies are swell, but over or unnecessary use is not. We recommend implementing only those technologies that add utility or value and work on mulit-platform OS/devices. This approach reduces development costs while enhancing the user experience.

change is good : Finally, we recognize the need for site redesign, updates and expansion. Therefore, we build websites with scalability in mind, using style sheets to control presentation and foster fast and easy change. For clients who wish to update their own websites, we offer comprehensive training in content management systems.

our web design process : We provide an initial one-hour FREE consultation to establish the scope of the project, including desired content, graphics, technologies, and future enhancements. At this time, an overall design strategy is identified and a production timeline established. The client is then required to submit an outline detailing the complete content of the website from which a cost estimate is prepared. Upon acceptance of the contract (with signature and deposit), design work begins.

IDTech proceeds with designing sample pages for client review. Upon design approval, templates are prepared for the entire site. Concurrently, the client is expected to provide content to support each outline item in electronic format. For search engine optimization, clients are also asked to provide a list of keywords and a brief description of the website. Acceptable file formats for text are Microsoft Word (.doc), Rich Text Format (.rtf), iWork Pages (.pages) or PDF (.pdf). There will be an additional charge for documents requiring electronic transcription. Images provided by client can be accepted in most file formats (.ai, .jpg, .pdf, .png, .psd, .tif).
