Seattle Website Design & Development

Website Design and Website Development

While creating aesthetic beauty is always one of our goals, our number one goal is to solve problems. Design is often misunderstood as simply visual aesthetics - but design is a process of getting to know you, your philosophy, your personality, your customers, and your customers’ needs. Design is doing research to learn about your unique customers and how we can give them what they’re looking for. Design is creating the right message and knowing how to keep users engaged with content. By understanding user psychology and how people use the web, we set goals for your users that will guide every decision we make, from the colors we choose to the placement of buttons.

We work with you throughout the entire design and development process. We’ll help to identify your audience and establish a content strategy from written content, art assets and your company's philosophy. Once we’ve created an effective design, we’ll create for you a robust, clean site with fast response time and great on-site SEO (search engine optimization) practices in place. We’ll handle domain registration and website hosting, create sitemaps for search engine indexing and install analytic tools so you can track your users and performance.

Website Design Portfolio

Allied Beverages, Inc.

Allied Beverages, Inc.

Launched 2013 to 2015

With a portfolio of over 300 different beers and spirits, Allied beverages is one of the largest beer distributors in California for the last 60 years. They’ve partnered with some of the world’s most recognized brewers and importers to serve over 12 million cases of beers to over 4000 licensed retailers across Los Angeles, Ventura, and Santa Barbara counties. Our job at BlueK was to help create an online presence for this impressive family owned operation.

Allied’s focus was not only on providing knowledge of the different beer types and food pairings but also to showcase their beer portfolio to inquiring retail partners. Our first and most important task was to ensure that Allied was supported by a modern, user friendly Content Management System, Sitefinity, so their portfolio could be updated as their business changed.

EFS approached BlueK with the intention of having a more modern design and a friendly user experience that was more in line with today’s web standards. Their old site was outdated, inefficient and difficult to update. The redesigned showcases a responsive, interactive design that is dynamic and clear to understand. One of EFS' biggest concerns was to express their strong focus on ethics, integrity, professionalism and customer satisfaction. We made a point to highlight their company mission throughout the site to continue the integrity and quality of their company's services.

We built a new website from scratch while incorporating some of the old aesthetic in order to retain familiarity for their loyal returning customers.

We also crafted a custom shopping cart & payment system and a customized database to accommodate their wide selection of baskets.
