What is templated design?

A template design is a pre-made website template that gives a great start for the overall design you are looking for in your new website. We then customize this template to fit your business' needs. This customization process may include structural changes, the addition/removal of elements, etc.

Why use a template design?

Templates dramatically cut down on the time it takes to design and buildout your new website which ultimately saves you money on our your total site development.

Benefits of the subscription+ Plan

We know our subscription service can feel like it is just a payment plan since there is a limit of 24 payments, however, we include services other subscription plans do not offer.

Custom from the ground up
say hello to the freshest website in the neighborhood

Our process takes between 13-20 weeks depending on the scope of your project and the results are well-worth the wait. All custom designs are built around your needs and brand.

Pricing Begins at $5,000
Discovery + Plan

Custom websites require a deep understanding of your business, so we will be working closely together definitely virtually and hopefully in-person.

We begin with a discovery phase that allows for research and understanding of your industry while also learning about your business' uniqueness.

Based on the discovery, we develop a custom timeline, identify assets needed, create a shared tracking tool, and generally plan out your entire build.

Tailored Design Process

We marinate on our notes taken during the discovery phase and get to work on creating a design that touches on all of your site needs while keeping your style and brand as our true north regarding all user experience and interaction decisions.

Pixel Perfect Buildout

Based on your approved design, we get to work building out your new website. As your site's development moves along, it is natural to discover new options, tweaks, and variations that may be better than our original design.

Your approval is required for all changes because you are the boss.

Hosting + Security + CDN

After your site has been built and is ready for launch, you can feel confident that your site will be as secure as possible. We use AMAZON WEB SERVICES for all hosting, security, SSL certificates, and as our content delivery network ensure your site will be secure and fast.

Custom Training

Now that your site has been launched and we are providing maintenance and technical support, you will be given access to a website editing tool which will allow you to update your site's content manually or, in some cases, automatically with a connection using Zapier.

You will receive a series of custom-recorded tutorial videos specific to your site. No more searching on YouTube for a how-to video. All solutions to edit your site's content are now available in a simple video library.

Ask to see if you can receive free, in-person training.

Maintenance + Support

After your site has been launched, we will take over the heavy-lifting for your site's upkeep and also provide technical support during our business hours.

Maintenance
Our maintenance plans are designed to alleviate your monthly workload regarding updating your site's content. Have a new meeting, blog post, or service you want listed online? We will update that. Need to embed code or integrate tools. We can handle that for you. Content creation is not included.

Support
Have a question? We are available during normal business hours for phone and video calls.

BUILDOUT

The plan has been made and we take your design to the next level with our vast buildout experience and customization integrations.

Phase 1

Discovery + Design

First, create a container to house the card elements.

In this case, I have created 'c-cards-list' and 'w-cards-list'. 'c' represent container and 'w' represent wrapper. This is my standard structuring method to prepare the elements for complicated interactions just in case.

Similarly, create 'c-card' and 'w-card' inside the container. Style the 'w-card' element according to your preference and then add in required content.

Phase 2

Initial Build

To create a stacking effect, you will required to use the 'position: sticky'.

Apply 'position: sticky' to 'c-card' element and apply at least 1px for the top position.

By now, you should be able to see the cards stacking on top of each other while you scroll down the page.

Phase 3

Create layering effects for stacked cards

Great. Now you have successfully stacking the cards on top of each other. To make them looks better, we will create some layering effect.

Create combo class for each of the 'c-card' element. For example, '1', '2', '3' and etc. Then add some value in the top position. For example, for first card, you can give it 20px from the top to make some spacing. Then for the following cards, you can add 100px each. You can adjust the value based on your design and layout.

Example: First card : 20px ; Second card : 120px ; Third card : 220px ; and so forth...

Phase 4

Enhancing layering effect with interaction

To make the layering looks even much better, you can apply interaction into 'c-card' elements.

Apply 'While scrolling in view' interaction to 'c-card' elements and ensure it affects all same class. Set the smoothing value to 90%.

Insert 'Scale' interaction starts at keyframe 40% (scale value: 1) and end at 100% (scale value: 0.8). Set it to affect 'Interaction Trigger' (c-card).

Now you should be seeing the cards stacking on top of each other with nice layering and depth.
