Philosophy

Compliance With Standards

We build websites that are compliant with W3C standards. This means your website will be viewable by any browser on any operating system. Your site may not look identical on every platform, however the content and information will be available to everyone. A standards compliant website will be compatible with new generations of web devices, and will be easier to update and maintain in the future.

Accessibility

The Web Accessibility Initiative, or WAI, publishes the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines which have been endorsed as a W3C Recommendation. We are committed to delivering custom web design that is accessible to users with disabilities. If accessibility is a concern to you, we can guarantee compliance with these guidelines, and display a validation banner on your site.
