Responsive Design

What is it? You might hear this term a lot in the world of web design. Simply put, it’s making sure your website looks and works great on any device. 70% of all searches are done on a mobile device, so if your website isn’t optimized for phones, you could be missing out on traffic.

CMS Platform

Calico Design builds websites exclusively with the WordPress CMS (content management system) platform. WordPress was originally created as an easy to use blogging platform. Today, 35% of the Internet is Powered by WordPress because of it’s robust community of developers and massive strides in design capability.

Some of the most successful companies in the world prefer WordPress as their CMS, including: TED, NBC, CNN, TechCrunch, People magazine, the NFL, Best Buy, CBS Radio, and UPS.

Over 455,000,000 websites in over 100 languages (and growing) are using WordPress with developers spanning the glob to provide added functionality.  

We think you’ll like WordPress as much as we do, and we’ll be happy to show you the ropes on how to use it. If you get stuck, we’re happy to help. 

Can't I Make My Own Site?

There are plenty of options for do-it-yourself web builders like WIX or SquareSpace, and they are perfectly good platforms. The problem comes when you really need your website customized and optimized for search engines. A well crafted website requires a lot of technical knowledge… even with a DIY builder. They also do not perform as well or have the SEO power under the hood of WordPress.  

Trusting a professional to create and protect your web site is important, just like when you get your car worked on. Consider it an investment in you business, like any other tool or asset. It needs regular maintenance, upgrading, backups, and sometimes overhaul. When you partner with us, we’ll be in your back pocket should something come up. Your original web designer is the person you’ll work with, and you’ll never be left on a chat room or on hold with someone who doesn’t understand your web site already.
