Do you offer search engine optimization?
Yes, we do offer search engine optimization services. Our top web design company in Toronto is in afforded opportunities to work with the best SEO service providers around the world. Through these experiences, we’ve honed our search engine optimization expertise and knowledge of search engines. We do not regularly offer SEO services independent of a website design or web development project as our expert SEO knowledge is best effected when it is woven into a custom web design and web development project.
Contact us to learn more about our search engine optimization services and learn how we can grow your business.
Do you use templates in your web design?
No, our web designers do not use templates of any kind in our user experience or custom Toronto web design and development work. All of our design and development services are created from scratch and tailored to meet the individual and highly specific needs of each and every client.
What graphic design services do you offer?
Our firm started as a graphic design company in 2003. Since then we have focused on website design, web development, search engine optimization and branding. Our web design company does not actively seek out projects requiring alternative design modalities, but we do provide a number of graphic design services to clients in tandem with digital marketing projects, including:
- Packaging design
- Print design (brochures, annual reports)
- Tradeshow and event graphics (booths, banners)
- Social media marketing design
- Email design and development.

Do you offer any digital marketing services?
No, we are not a digital marketing agency… exactly. However the line in the sand is a bit blurry in this regard. We focus on web services such as web design and website development ranging from user experience design to custom e-commerce solutions and search engine optimization. We create all of the visual assets that marketing agencies use to run their inbound content marketing campaigns. We partner with our client’s marketing service providers to bring their digital strategy to life as web designs, custom website development logos, brochures and other advertising.
We do not provide social media marketing, content marketing, mobile app development, pay-per-click (PPC) campaigns, Google AdWords or marketing automation. We do have a network of great service providers we would highly recommend should you require these services.
How big is your company?
Recognized by top web design directories like Clutch and UpCity, we are an award winning Toronto web design agency with a team of 12. We have six web designers and six web developers giving our team balance when it comes to tackling projects for clients of all sizes. Our team went virtual in 2009 and has enjoyed the benefits of a greater work-life balance along with our success.

Do you work with WordPress themes?
We do not work with website builders or purchased WordPress themes as they limit the type of design and custom web development we can provide our clients and hinder our ability to meet their goals.
Can you fix my website?
Unfortunately, we no longer take on projects that require working with custom web design and web development that another agency has created. The decision to stop accepting this type of work was a difficult one as we don’t like to turn people away. However, accepting a web development project of this nature requires significant investment in discovery by our internet design team to analyze the website to understand how it works, how it’s built and how everything is connected. By the end of what may seem like a straight-forward project, the cost is close to a new custom website design or web development endeavour, but often with only limited improvements.
What website platforms do you work with?
There really are not many platforms we can’t work with and integrate into your website. Our Toronto website design firm specializes in open source web development and search engine optimization focusing primarily on WordPress. In most cases, we are integrating multiple platforms within each website including CRM’s, ERP’s, email marketing platforms like Mailchimp, Google Analytics, appointment booking services or payment processors.
Do you work with WordPress templates?
We do not work with pre-made or purchased WordPress templates as these types of assets tend to be very rigid and require a significant amount of discovery on behalf of our web development team to fully understand the configuration of each theme and its web pages. We specialize in user experience design and strategy that drives custom web design in Toronto and is tailored to each client’s needs. The only way to achieve this is by working with our clients to identify their goals, strengths, weaknesses and starting from scratch every time. Using premade WordPress templates limit the type of unique design and web development we can provide our clients and hinder our ability to help them meet their goals.
Do you work with companies outside of Canada?
Yes, we work with companies and website owners all over the world. The majority of our clients reside in Canada and the United States, however, we maintain relationships with companies across the pond as well.
What industries or types of clients do you work with?
We work with clients ranging from various enterprise-level to small business categories depending on project size. We have been a staple in the Toronto website design industry since 2003 and expanded our client-base across Canada and North America over the last two decades working with some of the world’s most exciting brands. We believe in approaching each project with a hand-crafted approach to help each client meet their unique goals rather than offering a one size fits all solution.

Do you work with startups?
Yes, absolutely! Working with startups all over Toronto to get their new business up and running is always an exciting part of our business. The opportunity to get in on the ground floor and build a brand or website from scratch is an incredibly rewarding project for our team.
To learn more about how we can help your startup get off the ground contact our web design and development experts today.
Are you an accredited design agency?
Yes, we are an award-winning web design company that is fully accredited by RGD Ontario (Registered Graphic Designers of Ontario) and enjoy an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau. We’ve also won awards and commendations for web development from platforms like Clutch that focussing on Toronto web agencies.
Who will be working on my project?
In most cases, you will only deal directly with our project manager. Occasionally, during review sessions or meetings you may interact with the web designer and web developer assigned to your project to provide clarity and direction. We don’t believe in playing the broken telephone game when it comes to client communications.
What eCommerce platforms do you with?
As our Toronto web developers specialize in open source solutions like WordPress we primarily work with WooCommerce as our eCommerce platform of choice. This allows our web designers to provide highly customized online stores for our clients. We do dabble with other platforms such as Magento occasionally but have found the most success and flexibility with WooCommerce.
Additionally, our expert web developers often create customized payment gateways integrated directly into client websites using payment processors such as Moneris, Chase Paymentech, Stripe and many others where a full-blown eCommerce storefront is unnecessary.
To learn more about our custom e-Commerce website design services contact us today.
What CRM’s do you work with?
Though we do not work “in” the CRM’s, we have extensive experience integrating many of the most widely used client relationship management tools available today, including:
- Marketo and more.
Do you offer photography or video production?
No, we do not offer professional photography or video production services, but do have several contacts in Toronto that we’re happy to incorporate into projects or simply refer to our clients to work with directly.
Do you offer website copywriting services?
Yes, we do have a network of professional website content writers that have experience in many different industries. When top website copywriting services are woven into our custom web design, development and search engine optimization process we’re confident your website will climb up the search engine rankings and convert web visitors into paying customers.
Learn more about our website copywriting services.
Do you offer mobile app development services?
No, we do not develop mobile applications or offer software development, unfortunately as we specialize in web design and branding. However, we do provide mobile application interface design services and happily partner with app developers who specialize in this field.
How much does a logo design cost?
Logo projects are the most difficult type of graphic design projects to price out. Branding is the foundation of all the marketing you will create to promote your business or product for years to come. It’s incredibly important and personal and often requires business owners to make big decisions.
We approach logo design projects in two ways:
- New logo design: in this type of project we create 3 brand new custom design concepts. Through the revision process with our clients, we narrow these down to a winning concept and work together to refine the artwork before preparing the brand identity manual and business systems including business card design and social profile graphics. This type of project starts at $10,000.
- Brand refresh: in this type of project we are not creating a whole new identity from scratch, but instead, working with your existing brand to give it a facelift, or refresh so that we’re not completely overhauling a brand that holds value with an existing customer base. Instead, we breathe new life into the brand for years to come. This type of project starts at $5,000.
