We know our clients use their sites to run their businesses. That’s why we provide custom design and development services for our clients. Discovering opportunities and leveraging the power of programming, design and usability to solve problems is what we love to do.
The purpose and goals of every project is different. The right solution may be a simple responsive website, or a custom web application, or a complex site with hundreds of pages. Some may need a totally customized look and feel, while others are great candidates for a WordPress template.

What are the benefits of a responsive website?
A responsive website adapts the page content to fit to the screen size of the visitor. Gone are the days where businesses should consider a responsive vs non-responsive website. Top 3 benefits of having a responsive website:
- It provides a better user experience for tablet and mobile users. Mobile usage numbers continue to rise as our phones continue to improve. Have a question? Your phone likely has the answer. When your site is responsive, a user can find their answer quickly! Without it, they’d have to “pinch and zoom” to find information, or possibly stumble across outdated or abbreviated information.
- It’s easier to manage. Since the site content is the same for all users and devices, you only have to manage a single version of content. That includes text, images, links, and SEO markup.
- It reduces web design and development costs. Since there’s only one site and one set of content, only one site needs to be built. That saves time. Responsive design and development has led to many creative designs and online business solutions that simply weren’t possible before.
What is the main purpose of a corporate website?
The main purpose of your website will vary depending on your business goals and needs. For example, an e-commerce business that sells products online will need to drive sales; whereas, a service business (like Back40) relies on lead generation like contact form submissions and phone calls. Over the last 20 years, we’ve built thousands of websites that help grow businesses. It all starts with a conversation. Contact today. We’d love to talk about your business!
Why does a small business need web design?
Your website is a 24 hour marketing tool. It works for you even when your office may be closed for the day. Plus, it’s easy to update and maintain. With strategic messaging and development, it can be your leading salesperson.
Why is graphic design important?
Good graphic design is clear, concise messaging. It can guide your customer to the information they need quickly and visually – and to your call to action. In terms of creating an impact, people generally recognize color, shape, then words (in that order). Consistency in all your branded materials will also increase recognition with your customers.
How much does WooCommerce cost?
WooCommerce is a free plugin available on WordPress websites. Back40 Design specializes in building custom e-commerce websites utilizing WooCommerce as a base.
What is custom website design?
Custom web design means that it’s created specifically for your business. It incorporates your branding (messaging, logo, graphics, colors) and is designed to facilitate your business goals. It’s an investment that can have a very high ROI when professionally and strategically executed by using our web development services.
