Website Design

Watermelon Web Works has been designing high quality websites for over 15 years.

Here's what we can do for you:

We’ve been designing web sites since 2002. If you’re looking for a local Portland or Denver web design agency, look no further. If you don’t mind working with an out-of-state design team, we have clients all across the nation and would be happy to add you to that list. Either way, we have the know-how to design your website the right way.

What we have learned is that there are a few primary areas of focus to any good web design.

Make your website easy to use

One of the most important aspects to a website is that it is easy to use. If you have the prettiest website in the world and it is difficult or frustrating for users, you’ve lost the game before they ever get a chance to see your greatness. We have studied on this concept for many years. It is generally our top priority when designing a new website.

Websites should always accomplish business goals

At the end of the fiscal quarter, we don’t want you to have a website bill and nothing to show for it on the other side of the balance sheet. The websites that we design are usually very good, in fact, at chalking up some serious points in the assets column. That’s why our first conversation with you is often centered more around business goals than it is around color, design trends and other important concepts in design. Once we have a clear sense of what we want to accomplish in our collaboration with you, we then move on to the various toolboxes that we have to accomplish those goals.

Your site serves a specific purpose for visitors

If your website is not useful to its visitors, they generally won’t come back. So we help you to make good decisions about content, structure, and functionality. We measure, measure, measure to be sure that people are using the site the way that it is designed to be used (and if they aren’t, we take the time to understand and correct it).

Finally, yes, of course your website needs to be elegant, professional, and up to the privilege of being your digital face on the internet. People judge you, your organization, the ability of your company to perform its core services, etc. based on your website. We have developed an intimate understanding of this over eleven years in business.

Need a specific type of site designed? Here are a couple of our areas of expertise:

Small Business Website Design

Small businesses need a strong web presence to be successful. We create websites that highlight your business’s strengths and focus on making your website as convenient as possible for your customers. Schema markup and local SEO help put your business on the only map that counts – Google Maps.

Corporate Website Design

Building an enterprise-level website is a serious task. Our web designers have the experience and expertise necessary to execute beautiful, functional designs at the highest level. Your website is the face of your brand, and when thousands of visitors from across the nation or across the globe are using it on a daily basis, it needs to be perfect.

NonProfit Website Design

We have extensive experience building websites for nonprofit organizations. As a result, we are experts at tailoring websites to spread awareness of an organization’s mission. A good nonprofit website is a tool for activating support, and we have several tools to connect you to your community and simplify the donation process.

Financial Website Design

Financial websites are held to some of the most rigorous design and security standards of any type of website. Websites for banks, credit unions, and other financial institutions must be built with the care and expertise that can only be provided by web developers with years of experience.

Law Firm Website Design

Individual attorneys and larger legal practices need a website that reflects the professionalism of their organization. Potential clients’ first impression of you will likely come from this website. Our job is to ensure that it instills a sense of trust and authority that will help convert visitors into clients.

Restaurant Website Design

When hunger strikes your visitors and they don’t know what they crave, their first reaction is to turn to the internet. We can help you build a website that emphasizes your menu and entices customers with high quality images of your dishes. Our marketing services can help your restaurant build a social media following and get the positive reviews you need to bring your business to the front of Google, Yelp, and more.

Website Redesign

Designing a new website is hard; redesigning an old website is even harder. Our expert developers can help you bring your website into the modern era. Whether you are looking for a simple color scheme change or a full content migration and website framework overhaul, we have the knowledge and experience necessary to execute a flawless redesign of your website.
