We’ve done A LOT of professional design work over the years – in Michigan and across the US. Our focus is website design and search engine optimization, but in making websites for companies we’ve also done a wide variety of print and digital graphic design work. Because of that, we’ve split our portfolio into three sections.

1) Our Website Design Portfolio focuses specifically on websites that we’ve designed and built. 2) Our Graphic Design Portfolio is full of logos, mailings, banners and other professional graphic projects. 3) Our Photography Portfolio is more artistic than commercial, but we OFTEN draw on our repository of photos to help inspire and create our professional designs.

We are a non-profit that builds playgrounds all over the country and our website is a vital part of showing what our playgrounds look like and how people can donate to our cause. Thanks to the design professionals at Traverse City Web Design, we constantly receive compliments on the information and easy usability that our site provides.”

Michigan’s Organic Search Engine Optimization Experts

We use time-tested, ‘organic’ search engine optimization (SEO) techniques to get our clients top page rankings in Google, Yahoo, Bing and a host of other search engines. Organic search engine optimization means making subtle, but very specific changes to the website’s wording and underlying code to propel it to the top of search engines.

The process is relatively simple. You tell us what words you want your website to rank under in Google and we organically optimize the site to get it to the top of those rankings. As a side benefit, in getting you better search engine rankings, we would also make your website look and work better.

Traverse City Web Design
Michigan’s Mobile Website Design Experts

We use “Responsive Web Design Techniques” to make mobile websites. Using responsive design to create a mobile website means we don’t design websites to simply work on desktops and laptops – we design websites that change shape and morph depending on which device you are viewing it on.

Almost every new website we design is mobile friendly. If you look at one of our websites on a desktop computer, it will look much different than it does on an iPhone or Android device. This is simply because the iPhone has a much smaller screen than a desktop computer, so if you want the website to be legible, it has to resize itself to work on the mobile device you’re using.

This makes for a cleaner experience when viewing the site.

We also find ourselves regularly taking non-mobile sites and making them responsive, or mobile friendly.

If you find your site isn’t looking as good as you might want on an iPhone or iPad, contact us. We can make it mobile-friendly.
