Websites made easy

You want to create a website for your company or organization? That can be overwhelming, but it doesn't have to be. We make building websites easy. We start by determining what kind of website fits your goals and budget. Our 15+ years in branding, design and web coding ensures that your website will have great functionality, but it will also be an integral part of your customer's brand experience.

Ready-Made Website

Basic Level (~$500-$1,000)

Build-it-yourself-website platforms give you a heads start but they can be very complicated, frustrating and time-consuming. In the hands of non-designers, the results can be a bad reflection of your brand image. Building an effective website, even from a ready-made, requires a designer’s touch, creativity, and technical expertise. By going this route we can guide you step-by-step through the process and design all your creative elements. This type of website is great if you only need a few webpages with basic information that you don't plan to update regularly—we are here to SAVE YOU TIME!

Tailored Websites

Entrepreneur Level (~$1,000-$5,000)

This is perfect for starting a respectful online presence. There is no shame in building from a template. But as designers we can modify the template to meet your goals and aesthetics (and clean up all that extra yucky code). This way we can be sure your brand professionally uses your official logo, fonts, colors, copy-style and photo-style. Also, this type of platform provides us with the ability to add features relevant to your needs i.e. social media feeds and video embeds. We'll work directly with you to ensure beauty and functionality that produces the results you're aiming for!

Bespoke Website

Industry Level (~$5,000-$10,000+)

The biggest advantage with a fully custom built website is the flexibility you get to scale and adapt your website to the changes of website trends and technology. We will also provide a CMS customized to your needs that allows you to update your website to consistently engage with your customers. Your custom website will take full use of your brand assets (logo, fonts, colors, copy-style and photo-style) in the user experience. If you have a luxury or affinity brand you know every detail counts with your customer. A fully custom website gives you full control of the details, and that's where you will set yourself above the competition.

Website Features

SEO Optimization

Let's be sure your beautiful website gets found on search engines. We'll help you build strong website architecture, provide clear navigation and relevant original content—we will get your website to rank high in search results.

Responsive Web Design

Customers will access your website with smart phones and tablets more frequently than laptops or desktop computers. We'll get your website to look awesome on mobile, tablet and desktop. Our Mobile-First responsive web design ensures your website looks great and functions properly on every device—no matter the screen resolution.

WordPress Content Management

WordPress is the leading Content Management System, but we also can set you up in KirbyCMS or Grav. We'll set it up so that any CMS you decide to work with will be easy to use, and can handle tons of traffic. We can customize your CMS with different levels of access so you can assign specific roles to your employees. And you can have the ability to publish as many pages & menus that you may need.

Branding Integration

Our biggest differentiator when providing web design service is our 15+ years in design. A website can be brilliantly coded, but your customers want to see your brand come alive with beautiful layouts and easy-to-digest information. We'll make sure your website engages with your customers on your unique and personal brand level.

Google Analytics

Know your audience! Who really are your customers? What attracts customers to your website? Is it the stories, the major product announcements, advertising, your blog? Google Analytics is the most widely used web analytics service on the internet. Use analytics to determine your next moves and where you should be expanding your business or targeting your next campaign.

Social Media Feeds

Social media and your website should work seamlessly together with one objective: Promote your brand. We can help you set up your brand consistently and effectively in all major social media platforms. And we can intertwine your social media feeds into your website to mega-power your brand's online imprint. For example—we can incorporate social share and follow buttons to improve user experience, social photos and video feeds to increase engagement; and social widgets to increase sales and website conversions.

Security Protection

A great website must be prepared to combat malicious attacks including spam. We can add layers of extra protections to fortify your website against denial-of-service attacks, customer data compromise, and abusive bots. It’s vital to ensure that your website performance is never sacrificed for security and that its systems have easy setup and configuration, avoiding configuration errors which can introduce security vulnerabilities.

General Site Maintenance

Let us do the trouble shooting. Like a home, websites have to be maintained for keep up. Technology, trends and internet laws are always changing. We offer monthly website maintenance packages so you don't ever have to worry about your website crashing or handling major errors on your own. Our maintenance packages come in three different tiers so you can chose what works best for you. All packages include offsite backups, plugin & theme updates, database optimization, security & malware scans, site monitoring, and monthly reports.

E-Commerce Solutions

Our expertise will set you up with a great working e-commerce website in no time!

Our owner

Angelo Lagdameo

Designer and Art Director

I go by the motto, “Meaningful design for meaningful business.” It’s my goal to authentically brand and design organizations and businesses who are transforming the world for the better. I gained my pragmatic approach to design while I was a design student in community college—professors focusing on the practical business application of design. On their encouragement, I signed up for portfolio day at MICA (Maryland Institute College of Art), a leading private art and design college in Baltimore, MD. Legendary designer/typographer Ellen Lupton reviewed my portfolio. She was impressed and helped me into their BA design program on a full transfer scholarship. Under the mentorship of Ellen Lupton (curator of contemporary design at Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum), Abbott Miller (partner at Pentagram), and Philippe Apeloig (Artistic Director of the Louvre Museum, Paris) I learned the power of prestige design—how great design can democratize society and connect humanity.

In my 15+ years as a designer and art director I’ve had a unique opportunity to empower brands that contribute positively to the communities we live in. Locally, I work with furniture manufactures who are committed to creating sustainable products and preserving traditional craftsmanship techniques. I brand economic development organizations that are generating jobs and raising the quality of life for those in the areas they serve. I design for healthcare entities improving the well-being of patients and families. I am also a Co-Founder & Chief Brand Officer of Create Change (createchange.me). Along side CEO Nathan West (musician, East of Eli) and CCO Chyler Leigh (actress, Grey’s Anatomy/Supergirl) we advocate for social change and social courage. Connecting with celebrities, artists and community organizations across the globe, we address tough issues facing Gen Z today like cyberbullying, suicide ideation & self-harm, living with disability, and screen-addiction. Thanks for reading my story, I hope to work with you soon!

What Angelo creates is an emotional connection between People and Design. That’s what’s key. That’s what matters. That’s what you get with Angelo.
