Web Design & Development
Your website is arguably the most important aspect of your company’s marketing plan. It serves as the central hub for your brands messaging, design esthetic and marketing efforts. Since the web never sleeps, your website is like a store front that never closes. Your website can serve as a complex display of core values, marketing messaging and calls to action, which generate results and sales which continually increase your bottom line.
Website design is an art form within itself. User experience, psychology of human interaction, storytelling, usability, functionality and overall website visual nature are important factors to address when designing an application interface or website. At Jesse Hopkins Design we work toward ensuring all your digital marketing and branding goals are met.
Every website and online presence that we approach is custom tailored to your company’s needs and budget.

Wireframe Design Document
Wire framing is an important communication tool in any web or app project. It gives the client, developer, and designer an opportunity to walk through the structure of the website. Creating a wireframe will save time in the long run and make sure everyone is on the same page far before the development process. The following is a list of some of the great benefits of wireframes:
- Wireframes bring clarity to your projects, allowing you to work through all the interactions and layouts needed.
- Wireframes helps all parties think about what the websites needs really are and helps define project goals and what primary focus should be.
- Creating wireframes make it easier for all parties to communicate your ideas and how the design would work with responsiveness in mind.
- Wireframes can also help deliver the core message of your website more effectively and gather feedback at an early stage.
- Wireframes give the developer a clear picture of the elements that they will need to code. How should the layout adjust for smaller-sized devices? What is the hierarchy of the content? How does the navigation respond to smaller screens?
- Wireframes cover the layouts of many/all sections of the website, resulting in a more fluid creative process.
Content Management System (CMS)
A Content Management System is the backbone application of your website, allowing you to make updates to your site instantaneously from anywhere in the world, all you need in an internet connection, user name and password. Building a website around a CMS (ie: WordPress) allows the client to hold the keys to the kingdom, giving them full access to the management of content on their site. Updating text, addition of photos, addition of new pages, etc., are tasks possible for anyone on your team to complete without coding or server management skills. Our design and development is done in a way so that when the addition of new content is introduced through the CMS, your content and photography are customized to your overall design esthetic, marketing and communication goals.
A large aspect of a websites success is the content and how the user experience delivers this content. The addition of new content is vital to the longevity of your website. With the use of a CMS as the backbone of your website, you can easily update content at any given moment.
Mobile Friendly / Responsive Framework
The fastest path to mobile customers is through a mobile-friendly site. If your site offers a great mobile experience, users are more likely to make a purchase. A great mobile site experience is becoming increasingly important, and users will keep looking for a mobile-friendly site until they find one that works for them. It turns out that you can lose more than the sale with a bad mobile experience. A site that’s not designed for mobile can leave users feeling downright frustrated, and these negative reactions translate directly to the brands themselves. Creating a mobile friendly site has become a critical component of building strong brands, nurturing lasting customer relationships, and making mobile work for you.
