Pixicom is a full-service website development and graphic design firm located in North Carolina, USA. Our professional designs and technical expertise translate into real business value for our clients.
Why should you trust Pixicom with your project?
Unlike many of our competitors, we design and develop websites with usability, accessibility and search-engine optimization in mind — our visually pleasing interfaces are the icing on the cake!
Besides content, the usability of your website is the most important factor in determining whether your site will be successful — no matter what you are selling (or providing) online. If people have to sit through distracting animations, figure out how to navigate your website, or weed through pages of disorganized content, they will go somewhere else that makes it easier for them to find what they need. Pixicom has both the knowledge and experience necessary to make sure your website does not suffer any of these pitfalls.
Accessibility applies not only to making your website compatible with devices such as screen readers for the blind, but also ensuring that it will work with mobile devices such as PDAs and Smart Phones. Image-heavy, slow-loading websites are a major annoyance for these users. Also, a screen reader cannot read text that is embedded in an image. You do not have to sacrifice visual aesthetics to make your website accessible — your site just needs to be programmed using standards that support these devices.
Again, while content plays a key role in how well the search engines will like your site, there are site-building methods that can further attract search engines to your site (and these do not include meta-tags, which are rarely recognized by search engines anymore). Without getting too technical: older methods of website development use lots of unnecessary programming code that gets in the way of search engines indexing ("reading") the text on your website. The average viewer can not tell the difference visually between the older and more modern methods of website layout, but the search engines certainly can... And they reward you for making their job (indexing the content on your website) easier by putting you higher up in the list of search results.
Our process: a learning experience
Pixicom follows a time-tested, formal process for our design and development projects. The process begins with listening and learning. We listen to clients and learn the unique circumstances of their organizations. We prepare detailed project plans and budgets to address specific needs to arrive at desired results.
We are long-term partners with our clients, and strive to deliver added value to our customers beyond the project engagement.
Our strategy is your success!
Pixicom’s strategy is firmly tied to the business and organizational goals of our clients. Our design and technology solutions exist to serve real business needs as well as the customers (and other stakeholders) of our clients.
There is no “one size fits all” approach to successful online initiatives. All of our services are effective, customized solutions made to realize the goals of our clients.
