User Interface (UI) design
Two18 Media has experience with optimized application and web site design for usability and ease of navigation. We have developed application user interface design for distance-learning for the US Army, and user interface design for a campus-wide network of information kiosks at Princeton University.
Standards compliant web design
Why is standards compliant design important to your business and your company's web site deployment? Standards compliant web design ensures that a site is compliant with HTML and XHTML standards wherever applicable, is search-engine friendly, and allows the widest possible viewership to reach and be able to read your site. The structural information present in a standards compliant web document makes it easy for search engines to access and index the information present within the page. Additionally, web standards are written to be understandable by older web browsers which may still be in use today.
Web site design, prototyping and development
We use industry-standard applications including Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, Acrobat, and Macromedia Dreamweaver and Flash, to develop eye-catching and standards compliant web sites that will get your customers interested and your business growing. Following a proven, adaptable, three-stage development process, we work closely with you to design and develop a user interface experience that suits the particular needs of your business and its target market. Whether we design your branding identity for you, or use your existing logo design in a project we undertake, you can be assured of seamless and memorable integration.
Two18 Media can design sitewide management templates, utilizing industry standard Microsoft Frontpage and Macromedia Dreamweaver web development applications. These templates are different from the abundant layout templates available on the internet in that they are designed specifically for your website, and only your website. Our templates aid in the management of your business or personal website, reducing the amount of structural maintenance required in the regular upkeep of your site. After consulting with your staff or in-house web development team, we produce a highly structured model that integrates with your site, and around which your company can grow.
Personalized web site and blog design
Two18 Media is aware of the unique design issues involved with standards compliance and search engine accessibility for web log (blog) design. We have experience working with both the WordPress and b2evolution blogging software, and are also able to design and develop themes for your MoveableType blog.
We pay specific attention to site validation issues for your XHTML structure, your CSS (Cascading Style Sheet) layout and typography, as well as the importance of valid RSS and Atom newsfeeds. If you are planning to join the world of the blogosphere, and want a cutting-edge blog design without worrying about how to customize and personalize it to your own specific look and feel, contact us to see how we can help.
Web site templates
Two18 Media has considerable experience with Macromedia web site development products, and have used Macromedia Dreamweaver for web site design since 1997. Two18 Media's founder has served as a member of the Macromedia beta testing team, evaluating pre-market versions of Dreamweaver prior to their market release.
Seamless web site management templates for Dreamweaver and Frontpage
We do not use canned template designs for any of the work we develop for our clients. Canned site templates are easy to spot on the web, and there is no shortage of vendors selling them. The problem with these sites is they are seldom, if ever, standards compliant, nor are they optimized for anything but broadband connections. Worse still, canned templates are sold en masse, to multiple customers. Your business is unique. Shouldn't your website be unique as well?
Utilizing our depth of experience with the Macromedia Dreamweaver product, Two18 Media can design and develop Macromedia Dreamweaver templates, which are fully compatible with, and adapted to, your existing web site, or can be used as a foundation for your new web site design rollout.
