Design Services

With great design and proper development, you get a better return on your investment. Your marketing materials must be prepared effectively in order to compete; that point is critical.

Building direct relationships with our clients’ best customers requires that we live and work at the intersection of data and creativity. But those two words only begin to describe our broad range of services and disciplines. On a daily basis, for every account, we’re involved in:

UI/UX Design

The difference between website design and application design is that an app is generally tied to a service, and the user is focused on completing an action. This type of work is often referred to as UI / UX design. Our strength in design, paired with my long history with web and front end development makes me good in this space.

We collaborate well with your app developers. We pride ourselves in our ability to work through complexities, provide well thought out solutions, and in the end provide the viewer with a beautiful and seamless experience.

Responsive Web Design

The folks at Maverick Blair & Co. have been designing and programming websites for over eighteen years. We’ve seen many things come and go in the world wide web, and we always keep our ear to the ground for what’s coming out next. We focus on creating websites that are designed and coded beautifully.

We know the web is no longer just on the desktop. We put a huge emphasis on responsive design, which ensures that viewers get the best possible mobile browsing experience, no matter what device they’re using.

Identity & Branding

An identity is the foundation of a brand on which the supporting brand elements will rest upon. Building an identity starts with creating a logo that evokes emotion, is unique, memorable, and timeless. Once established, we determine colors, typefaces, social media graphics, and all the necessary supporting elements to begin building brand recognition.

Print Design

Graphic design was rooted in print, and that’s where we began. Although print is often overlooked with the advancement of the web, we still believe there is something really special about holding a beautiful letterpress business card in your hand. Bringing your brand to life through tangible objects is something we love to do.

Whether it’s through ads, banners, billboards, stickers, or some good ol’ fashioned stationery, we can help.

Motion

Motion video is the fastest and most effective way to tell your story. Gone are the days of massive paragraphs of text. Ain’t nobody got time for that. With motion, you can create a foundation of knowledge for your viewers right away, in seconds. Using motion is a great way to explain a process, highlight a unique product or service, show how your mobile app works, or present a problem and solution in seconds.

Development Services

You could have the most beautiful website in the world; but without proper development, potential clients finding it organically would prove challenging.

With up-to-date coding, we help ensure that the sites we build are ready to support your content. With website statistics at the core, we tie in video, social media, and photography to engage users in a website that looks great on all devices.

Front End Development

Understanding key server-side web development concepts through experience is important. We create visually appealing web based applications and interfaces, while ensuring browser and device compatibility. Using best practices and working in tandem with your team of developers.

Search Engine Optimization

Tied to strategy, a website needs to be developed properly to be able to increase visibility. Our websites are hand coded to make sure they are setup to promote your content properly. Utilizing website statistics, we can learn from how things are currently working to be able to improve things moving forward.

Responsive Development (mobile friendly)

Technology is an amazing thing. Thanks to iPhones and iPads, your site is available to anyone anywhere 24/7. Having a proper mobile strategy, in a lot of scenarios, means having a responsive website. Users want the ability to access all data from their laptop on their phone – and responsive development gives them that.

Content Management Systems

Utilizing management tools like WordPress, with custom theme integration, we can give clients the freedom to keep their sites up to date in an easy to use environment. We take every effort to increase environment security, file organization, as well as ensure automated full-site back-ups.
