Web Design & Development That Wows

With 4.7 billion active internet users in the world today, there’s a good chance your website will be many individuals’ first interaction with your organization–and those first impressions matter! Research has shown that 94 percent of users judge a website on how it looks, and nearly half will leave a site entirely if it takes longer than three seconds to load (Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems, Akamai).

This means that a well-designed, easy-to-use website is no longer a luxury–it is a necessity. It offers accessibility for your customers. It provides credibility for your organization. And it serves as the foundation for all of your other digital marketing efforts.

At Foundry, we recognize that modern website design is far more than a pretty homepage. We know that great web design–how a site looks–and web development–how a site functions–work in tandem. That is why we offer a full spectrum of customized web design and development services to enhance the aesthetics, content, structure and functionality of your webpage.

The result? A responsive, high-quality website that provides a more fulfilling experience for your target audience, driving conversions and growing your business.

As a result, we have consistently created websites for large, medium and small companies that win awards and–more importantly–deliver great return on investment. 

Our Web Design & Development Services

Foundry’s full suite of professional web design services–including design, development, monitoring and maintenance–are what set us apart from other web design agencies. 

Web Design

  • Graphic Design
    We’ll say it again: in the world of web design, first impressions matter. In fact, it takes less than 1 second for users to form an opinion about the visual appeal of a website (Behavior & Information Technology). This, in turn, directly impacts whether a visitor is willing to engage with the page or moves onto the next competitor. Our award-winning design team helps ensure that your site’s design is professional, beautiful, compelling and customized to your brand’s needs.
  • Content Creation
    Beautiful visuals may draw in your audience, but it’s substance that keeps them there, turning leads into conversions. We take care to tell your brand’s story through content that is fresh, interesting, relevant and appropriate to your audience. We also work with our web development team to ensure that all messaging incorporates SEO best practices that help it rise to the top of search engine results.

Web Development 

  • Research, Analysis & Strategy
    Our team of creative and technical experts review your current site. We use historical data and web analytics to draw insights about your target audience and market and make strategic recommendations about your web and digital presence. We can also help you determine what Content Management System (CMS) or e-Commerce platform is most appropriate for your organization.
  • Information Architecture & Navigation
    It is a truth universally acknowledged that a great user experience leads to higher conversion rates. Whether you are looking to build a new site from the ground up or improve your current site’s performance, we have extensive experience in a variety of CMS and e-commerce platforms. Our team specializes in creating a sitemap and page structure that is organized, functional and results in the ideal user flow.

    A Word about WordPress Development Services
    Content Management Systems (CMS) are online platforms used to build and maintain websites. While there are many options available, WordPress is both the most popular and fastest-growing CMS in the world (Hosting Tribunal). It is also highly versatile. Our team includes experts who specialize in WordPress development services and adhere to WordPress best practices, including the creation of high-quality code and integration of custom themes and plugins.
  • Optimization & Responsiveness
    A highly performing webpage must be easy for users to find and navigate. That is why we focus on search engine optimization and technical details that enhance the user experience. Additionally, with more than 50 percent of all web traffic coming from mobile devices, creating an adaptable, mobile-friendly website (referred to as “responsive design”) is an absolute necessity.

Web Monitoring & Maintenance

Part of our web design and development services includes crucial routine maintenance and website hosting. Our team can monitor site performance, maintain website security and update plugins. We are also able to host your website on our servers for optimal performance and daily backups.

With various restaurant concepts throughout the country, each in unique markets and facing various challenges, the Foundry is eager to make suggestions and optimize our marketing strategies.  The entire team was professional and supportive and their workflow made it easy to communicate our needs and see a result.

The Foundry provided expertise in SEO and digital search and social media advertising, for which we saw great results. Our web traffic increases steadily and we were able to review those metrics with them on a regular schedule.  

Over the past year, we implemented four takeout concepts and the Foundry quickly adapted bringing us creative designs, brand kits, logo design, online presence, social media strategy, and more.  We genuinely felt that the entire team had our best interest in mind and was cheering us on throughout the process. Thank you, Foundry, for your ongoing support and dedication to our success!
