Responsive and Clean Design

One thing we always tell our web design clients: the introductory paragraphs on the home page should first have some kind of interesting hook or angle, then it should summarize the business or organization in a few sentences. What is it you're really all about? In a nutshell. This introductory section will be the core of the rest of the website.

Ok, here's what Wilford Design is all about: first and foremost we are designers. We design websites, we design and program applications, we design traditional graphic design and marketing materials. We don't farm out our design or custom programming, we design and build our websites in-house, generally custom and from scratch. We know what we're doing and we think we're pretty good at it.

We are both a technology company and a design firm. We approach all our projects as design challenges. We like to make beautiful things. We build our websites with the best technology from our own designs and utilize an advanced responsive framework. We can program custom functionality throughout a site. We also program custom client business applications, whether it's a custom catalog, order system or customer management system.

We also enjoy collaborating with our clients as we build their websites or market their businesses.

If your business or organization needs to present itself professionally to the world, we can help you. That's our job, to help our clients be successful.

The Vector is the Victor – Why SVGs Rule the Internet

I started my design career long ago, back when we our design layouts were called paste-ups, because we would actually paste blocks of type and photos down on art boards.
