Working with Awake Media has been a wonderful experience. Not only does the team have great expertise in making websites look great, but they are also amazing at helping communicate organizational missions and messages through the website and in other mediums. I would highly recommend Awake Media to any organization or individual trying to make their message stand out and reach target audiences. -Joshua Wickerham, ESC
If you don’t already have a great logo that’s where we should start. The logo is the cornerstone of your brand, and it communicates the essence of who you are. It sets the brand tone, look and feel, and color palette, so it is important that it capture that essence in a unique way. Learn more
Scope of Work Meetings
Not only is the user interface design important, the look and feel, the communications goals, the main messages, and the ethos or style is important. Who’s your audience? What’s your story? How are you going to tell it? Through what channels? These are some of the questions we explore together during our scope of work sessions before we design your site.
You may yourself be a good writer, but strategic web content written by a professional has a lot more mileage. We recommend that you either let us write original content for you, or you write the first draft and we will copy edit for style and content. Video content will also need to be initiated and produced on a separate track. WRITING
PSD Design Mockups
The communication drives the site concept and design so we don’t begin PSDs until we have at least a home page draft. Then we create a Photoshop layout of the home page and a few inside pages for you to sign-off before we implement on WordPress.
It takes a team of 3 experts to implement a website– a designer who creates the look and feel, a front-end web developer who sets up the site theme and formats and launches the site, and a back-end programmer who makes customizations and fixes broken code or incompatibilities. We quality check our websites for overall brand integrity and design, functionality, browser compatibility, mobile responsiveness, navigation, SEO readiness, layout inconsistencies, loading speed, and links. Samples
We include a basic tutorial on how to use the theme and make edits to copy, add pages, add media, insert videos, and publish your site. Extended tutorials can be negotiated.
Hosting, Security & Maintenance Plans
We offer domain name registration, hosting, SSL installations, and monthly support and maintenance packages through Awake Hosting which is built on the Green Geeks environmentally friendly hosting platform.
Lakshmi and I worked over a period of months on my website. She educated me as we went on the wealth of options available in today’s technical environment. We worked together as a team on all aspects of design. Her technology team put it all in place. Lakshmi is a pleasure to work with. She’s an excellent designer who can also really hear her client’s design ideas, understand them, and integrate all the ideas of both designer and client into a synergistic whole. And she’s affordable! I have received many wonderful comments from viewers about the website since it went public. As a writer and a person who likes to share ideas, it’s wonderful to have a stable and functional place with which to interact with the world at large. – Diana Slattery
