We’re the Leading Custom Web Development Firm in NYC
Web Development

For over 20 years, Think Design has been delivering top-quality websites that showcase our clients’ expertise. The knowledge we have gathered from building sites for diverse sectors and fulfilling their marketing needs benefits our new and existing clients. Our experience and expertise sets us apart from other web development firms, giving you the peace of mind you need to further build your business.

What we offer

Discovery

We perform extensive research to determine the best path to realize your goals. From a position of understanding, we design a development plan that suits your specific needs and creates a framework for the right platform to build your audience.

Planning

Need a reliable content management system (CMS) so you can create and manage content on your website without a web developer? Look no further than Think Design, the leading custom web development agency in NYC. We have expertise in Jamstack and Drupal, while our expert WordPress website designers will collaborate with our UX experts on your site architecture before starting development. This architecture underpins every aspect of the site, giving your venture the best chance to succeed and flourish, while also creating flexibility to accommodate new growth opportunities.

Customized Web Design

One size does not fit all. We are here to provide the best design and UX with your business’ needs in mind. During the discovery and planning phase, we’ll nail down your site’s design and UX direction, making sure it aligns with your brand’s identity and goals. Your website’s user experience (UX) reflects strongly on who you are as an organization. Getting your website right enables you to build an audience. With the right engagement from site visitors and analytics data, you can craft a targeted digital marketing strategy. This, in turn, places your website in the best position to ensure long-term growth.

Right Technology Incorporation

As the leading WordPress design and development agency in New York City, we stay up to date with the latest trends and best practices so we can deliver optimal websites. New isn’t necessarily better, and we’ll always benchmark tried and tested technology before making recommendations. The bottom line is that we work to ensure reliability and speed. If we’re building bespoke, we aim to deliver clean code and minimize bugs. The right tool for the job is always the aim, which means having an extensive toolbox. Many companies’ sites are built on WordPress, for example, and having the expertise to keep it secure is one of the essential components of WordPress web design. We are also familiar with static site generators (SSGs), such as Hugo and Gatsby.

Client Education

Making sure that the client and web developer are on the same page is essential, and we take great care to explain our decision-making so we can move forward in lockstep. There are various aspects of web development decision-making that seem opaque to a client without expert knowledge. For those clients that are interested, we are happy to lift the lid and share the technical reasons for each decision. Bringing the client into design sessions and co-creating is one of our specialties. It helps build a strong bond and educates the client so design iterations can progress smoothly.

Accessibility

While the roll out of COVID-19 vaccines has been a welcome development, there are barriers to accessibility. In January 2021, WebAIM found that websites in the United States at federal, state, and local levels have been marred by poor accessibility, furthering the inequities of vaccine distribution.

Accessibility should never be optional. Developing accessible online products enhances their SEO performance, but more importantly, it brings your brand and products to a wider audience, enhancing sales and knowledge of your brand.

At Think Design, web accessibility is baked into every website we build.

Enhancing your Brand with Good Development

The right look and feel for your site might not have an obvious connection to the way the site is developed, but it’s crucial for your brand. Planning the right experience for your audience depends on the ability of your website developer to deliver it.

You will hinder user engagement if your site is slow, buggy, laden with obsolete plug-ins, is confusing to navigate, points people to pages with errors, and so on. But in much less obvious ways, web development may hinder you through hidden things such as poorly-implemented on-page SEO. Your web pages might lack proper meta titles and descriptions, for example. Or perhaps you’ve chosen coding practices and UX that deliver some benefits for specific use cases but hinder the ability of search engines to crawl and index your site.

There are endless small ways that inexperienced development can hinder your brand’s potential. Clients may not know to look out for these issues, but we do.

Maintenance and Support

Once the website is live, we provide full support to our clients to ensure their websites’ smooth running. While our maintenance service can be tailored to your needs, we always recommend a plan that enables us to stay on top of bugs and security threats and minimize any downtime arising from a site or server issue. Maintaining a fast, secure site is the basic complement to our web development service. We can also provide maintenance as a standalone service for pre-existing sites not built by Think Design.

Support for your web team can include ongoing training (we’ll always provide handover training as part of the development process), as well as content management. If you require new utility for your site, we’re able to offer a maintenance and support contract that includes revisions and new features.
