Our web methodology is always the same- design is always first, then development. The web designer channels our clients' wishes & feedback into the beginnings of what is seen online. Our affordable Denver web design company always adheres strictly to the bootstrap design framework when building websites, a set of guidelines that ensure optimal responsive mobile compatibility.Now the files are ready to proceed to development. They represent the top high end custom web page designs available anywhere.
The approved website page designs will now be sliced into much smaller image components to allow coding to begin. The front end code is composed mainly of html/css and js. This programming breathes life into the site pages in a static sense, allowing them to exist and attain visibility. All our Denver website design projects come with an administration panel allowing site stakeholder access to manage all web content onsite. The end result is the perfect marriage of form and function that brings a website to life, and gives you the finalized product you've been seeking.
When the website is signed off on by the client in its development server environment, we then make it live. Again testing of every facet is key. This to us is the inspiring part. Its why we do what we do. Seeing a completed website go live is a great feeling- and of course its why you hired us in the first place. After website launch we monitor details such as auto email generation closely to make sure its glitch free and ready to generate ROI.Successful Colorado website design starts here.
We pay much attention pre launch to optimizing all our websites for SEO. We combine content strategy with a highly effective suite of tools to cover all required search engine optimization functionalities. All our website designs are thoroughly checked for site speed, image compression size, cross device and browser compatibility. Meta titles and descriptions along with alt tags for images are all included in every page within the administration panel- be it Wordpress or our custom Stempora framework.When it comes to choosing local website design companies consider Big Orange Planet.
I would highly recommend their company and their work. Since we utilized Big Orange Planet to recreate our company website, we get compliments on the update continually. If you ever have the chance to work with Big Orange Planet, take it. Any time we have questions or concerns they are willing to assist in anyway possible. Thank you for a job well done.
I am the Marketing Manager at an oil and gas company in Denver. Big Orange Planet totally redid our website. Our marketing material and our old site were very mismatched, Ally and his team built the site to match the clean, modern aesthetic the rest of our branding follows. They also provided my team with an easy, intuitive admin back page to update the site regularly.
We took delivery of our new site this week and couldn't be more thrilled. Ally and his team went above and beyond for our complex site requirements. We have used other developers in the past with less than satisfactory results, but not this time. As our company grows we will certainly be using Big Orange Planet again. I highly recommend them to any one looking for a developer. They came in on budget, on time and kept us in the loop all the way with great communication. Thanks Ally!
Very responsive, easy to work with and much more reasonably priced than the fancy "design" companies.
Big Orange Planet helped me take my business to the next step to be competitive. Ally at Big Orange Planet did a fantastic job designing my company logo and foundation for my website. I will be using him again in the future when we do more updates to our site. If your looking for one of the best web designers in Denver, Please give Ally a call first.
I have used Big Orange Planet on 2 instances to design my company website. During the process of building the site we came across various obstacles and differences of opinions. Ally patiently worked through these issues to create the great site i have today. I did receive proper guidance during the process to aid in my decision making process. My prior and current site are both well maintained by Big Orange Planet. The completed website has generated extremely positive feedback.
A. We fully guarantee all our web products for site lifetime. We stand behind everything that we build, and believe this is the moral approach.And we are confident enough in our own abilities,and expereience, to offer this guarantee. nobody else does.
A. After an initial free consultation, we will provide a proposal and anticipated budget with no obligations. All projects are different by nature. We want you to be comfortable hiring us for your web build or graphic needs. We honor our bids always, regardless of any potential unforseen over-runs. Nobody likes a moving goal post. There is huge variance in cost of development within our industry.It tends to range from the ridiculous to the sublime. We are neither end of the spectrum, rather, exactly where we should be.
So yes, after we establish requirements in consultation with the client or prospective, a fixed bid will be issued.
A. Upon receipt of full payment ownership of the website and associated code transfers to the client. We have no wish to control your product. Any prospective client should shy away from an arrangment where they do not have full ownership of their website files. If you pay for it, you own it. We do of coursecontinue to support the products we engineer.
A. We pride ourselves on delivering website and application solutions that our clients have full day to day control over. By logging in to the client side admin interface, and following a few simple steps, our clients assume full control of the website content- be it text, images, video or blog posts. This ensures they will be easily and quickly able to manage these updates without any need to contact Big Orange Planet- an ideal situation all around. When you buy a thing, any thing, you should own it right? Whether its a sandwich, a house, or a website it should be your's.
A. Based on your goals and the project complexity, it can be a week or less to a few months.Again no 2 projects are ever the same, we provide timelines with all our proposals.The duration of any project is a direct function of not only complexity, but also communication.
A. We do not run websites beyond launch, this is the client’s responsibility. We do of course provide full training, and can always be relied on for full support. This is much better for your business needs. As a business owner, it is much better to have regular administrative control. Alternatively you would need to 'call the web guy', wait for turnaround, and pay for it.
A. Yes we have several options available, although we are not a web hosting company per se. We run our own dedicated server for non wordpress sites, which we keep very secure. We also have accounts with commercial web hosting firms. Obviously a website needs a suitable environment to reside in- this we will facilitate. Ultimately a correct choice for the web hosting environment depends on security, dependability, and support.
Big Orange Planet has developed websites and brands for oil companies, construction companies, doctors, dentists, engineering firms, lawyers, restaurants, architects, pharmaceutical companies, ecommerce stores, interior designers, software companies, non-profit organizations, schools, churches, and many more. We are flexible always to build anything needed, our only requirement is that whatever the task may be, it has to match our quality standards. A professional and appealing website presence is a must. Each project is of course unique- but what makes the difference is many years of experience. Our mission is, and has been for almost 20 years,to build the very best websites we are capable of, regardless of the type of website.
A. Absolutely, when the site is coming close to launch we will get together with you and spend the required time to get you up to speed on operating the Content Management System, CMS. We also answer follow up questions quickly. Its in both our clients' interest, and our own, that they are fully comfortable updating the site on an ongoing basis.
A. Yes our Denver interactive agency has designed many websites in Wordpress. We also have other backend options available where greater security, flexibility, and power is needed. Wordpress is perfectly suitable for smaller firms, and is a very easy system to learn and use. Full administration usage training is provided with all engagements our Colorado web design firm provides. The best solution is always in house updates by our clients' representatives.
A. Big Orange Planet products come with a full suite of SEO tools- meta description, title, alt tags, responsively designed, quick loading, and more. We want your website to be seen, as you do. We have been playing the optimization game for a long time. Google constantly changes its algorithmns, a successfull website development firm needs to react swiftly to such changes.
A. We engineer website products and applications that are responsively designed with strict adherence to the bootstrap framework. They will render flawlessly, regardless of device type or browser. Given the enormous surge in percentage of phone accessed internet visits over the past few years, responsive web design is absolutely vital. And that is true not only for your visitor experience but also your search engine rankings.
A. Yes we are a full services branding and graphic design agency. We can develop your company logo, brochures, business cards, social media banners, reports, billboard design, car wraps, and more. We do it all, all the time. Our design team relishes these challenges and we like to think our work speaks for itself.

We accept check, credit card, and of course cash.Lately we have been processing payments from the likes of Paypal, Square, and Zelle. As is web development industry standard, in installments of 50% or 33% is normal practice and our policy. We are always flexible but don't really want weekly payments for 6 months, as an example..We look forward to doing business with you.
A. The quality of what we've produced for others, is your best indicator of what you'll receive from us. There are many classes of quality available at a huge range of prices.Our Denver web design company has been involved in bids where one person or organization literally bid 10 times what another provider did. If you're receiving such a wide disparity of bids, your natural reaction is "what the"? We are what we make. Check our portfolio here: We understand how confusing the selection process of hiring a web designer can be and fully sympathize- the bottomline is do your research well and don't fall for the snake oil.
Overall, always, we strongly encourage anyone considering hiring a web designer, to take a good look at the designer's portfolio.
A. Establishing this is part of the design process, we’re going to take all your feedback and make it look great! Our mission is to create the best in class websites anywhere.Rest assured it will be fully device responsive and will do the site owner proud. Check out our reviews from happy clients on google here:
Design always comes before code, and is performed in Adobe Photoshop. We run these by our clients as images before any code is written- so essentially what you see is what you get.
A. We steer clients clear of picking from several average versions vs starting with the right one. Of course we offer re-concepting as needed. We shun mediocrity and have found this approach produces the best results consistently.
In very many cases we design a company logo before any other tasks are performed. Variations within a logo design scheme are normal. A business logo is always the key to the rest of the brand.
A. Our developers can handle anything you care to throw at them just fine. We have engineered all sorts of custom solutions- subscription based websites, ticketing websites, geo location websites and much more. We thrive on the challenges offered by a complex set of requirements. We have never needed to rely on template structures (eg wordpress themes), unlike most of our competitors. We are more than capable of building from scratch, and this is our ideal environment.
A. Our website design company in Denver, CO has been in business for 15 years , and aren't going anywhere. In addition we code in PHP, the most widespread language used on the web, any competent developer can take over if we all happen to get hit by a bus..We are not planning on an encounter with a bus, or a meteor, but you never know.
A. A confusing common problem for sure. At the top end of pricing are the large agencies and studios who use you to pay their overhead. At the bottom are inferior developers who are likely to issue somewhat desperate quotes, leading to shoddy products. We develop products as good as anyone, but have low overhead, so are our websites and other services are affordable, yet high quality.This is how we structured our agency from the beginning.
A. We are certainly aware there are many web development options out there across the city and the state. We are very proud of our work, and always encourage prospective clients to research their options thoroughly. But, yes, we do.
A. Very good question- informational website design typically takes about 4-6 weeks. More complex custom builds roughly twice that. Logos take a few days usually.
A. Yes unfortunately we encounter these scenarios reasonably often. We are happy to take on such projects. However, from long experience, in some cases a full redevelopment may be necessary.
A. The websites we engineer always utlize the latest technology and techniques. They are up to date and cutting edge today. That said, of course the internet is ever rapidly evolving. Your web or software product is good for several years at least. We ourselves have had 6 iterations of the Big Orange Planet website over 17 years of business, but its more important for us to update frequently than most industries for obvious reasons. We need to be current more than most, but still, you need to be reasonably current.
A. Yes its correct that the majority of websites these days are built using templates purchased generally from online marketplaces. While we also build sites in this manner, we differ from most of our competitors in that we can and do build websites from scratch, designing in photoshop, and hand coding everything.
In addition the Stempora organization, which we're a part of, runs its own template marketplace.
A. Like most web designers we prefer the Adobe suite of Photoshop, Illustrator, Acrobat and After Effects. Adobe has long been the king of design software and you really don't need to look any further. There are a variety of web design tools that have emerged such as Sketch and Adobe XD, we evaluate them on a case by case basis.
A. When building a site from a theme as opposed to from scratch, different agencies have varied opinions on which to use- we recommend a theme called Divi of late. Usually the nature of the website project determines the theme choice.
A. A good question. The 2 disciplines are separate, though of course closely intertwined. To best answer this one should think of what you see in front of you as the design part and how you interact with the site as the development part. Web design relates to the front end visuals, web development is more concerned with the back end processes.
Yes we do, we make all kinds of websites for all kinds of businesses. We've been doing this for 18 years, we know what we're doing and we do not have a high overhead type structure.
A. There are many different types of web design software out there. Some will allow even a non web developer to build a passable website in a very short period of time. There are also many software tools for developers that ease the various tasks that need to be accomplished to deliver a quality website product. There are also of course vast marketplaces full of website templates available for purchase.
A. Make no mistake there are a lot of free options out there. Websites such as Wix and sitey.me will allow you to build a site for free in a very short time span. Of course the quality and professionalism needed in a business website may be lacking.
A. Parallax movement is a visually impressive scrolling technique often used in website design where the background imagery in a web page move at a different pace than the foreground imagery. This creates an appearance of depth or 3-d on what is of course a two-dimensional website.
A. Yes google sites are free. With a regular Google user account, you can generate a google site (or as many as you want). Of course the domain name will still be an issue- the site will be on something like sites.google.com/xyz.com - you will need to deal with this aspect.
A. Generally speaking the answer is no, however when parallax is used correctly the results are fine from an SEO perspective. Google wants to see websites With multiple pages of rich content.. Many websites that use parallax have only a couple of pages. Our parallax websites have many pages always.The use of parallax is user-centric to enrich their experience.
A.If you are asking yourself how do I find local website design companies? We recommend googling terms and then researching thoroughly- its a dangerous World out there. A good comparative analysis should put you in a good spot.
A. Integrity is always big. The space we inhabit is crowded with all kinds of people with all kinds of agendas and all kinds of prices- always do your research thoroughly. Whatever you do make sure and check out their graphic portfolio- what you see there is what you get. As an addendum to this faq item, these days with illness prowling, you should look for a web company with low overhead. Don't hire someone who is about to go bust.
