Hudson Valley is NYC’s Web Design Incubator

Before the digital age, there was The Hudson River School. For centuries, the Hudson Valley has inspired artists and creative talent of every type. It only makes sense that that legacy has continued into the realm of Cyberspace. WhatsTheBigIdea.com, Inc. is a website design company in Hudson Valley.

The Hudson River School  flourished in the mid-19th century

“The Valley” has attracted the likes of  Thomas Cole, Frederic Edwin Church, Jasper Francis Cropsey, Asher Brown Durand, Albert Bierstadt, Thomas Moran, Martin Johnson Heade, Sanford Robinson Gifford, John William Casilear, William Hart, George Inness, Robert S. Duncanson, Jervis McEntee and many others. Like these great New York artists, we are equally inspired by the magnificence of this beautiful river valley, its history and the convenience of being less than 2 hours trip to NYC.

Creativity inspired by the Hudson River Valley

Much like these famous  landscape artists, we too are inspired by the beauty of the Hudson Valley. WhatsTheBigIdea.com will take your big idea and make it even bigger, even bolder and even better. We chose our name to speak to your imagination, to inquire about your vision and goals. And to that end, we serve our clients by providing quality, professional web design for individuals and businesses all across Hudson Valley and beyond.

Regardless of your locality from Mohonk Mountains to Montauk Point, we’re here to serve. Be it in New York City, or across the Hudson River in Westchester or Northward of Albany County, your company needs a global platform.  Your message needs to reach consumers who aren’t on the same block, who don’t live in the same zip code. And that’s what experienced website designers like ourselves do. We put companies in front of thousands of people each and every day. And we do it with style, with enthusiasm, with your customers in mind.

Plain and Simple-Talk About Web Site Design

We won’t try to sell you on web development service by enticing you with esoteric, complex-sounding terminology. When you hear terms like “MySQL”, “Cascading Style Sheets”, “graceful degradation” and “robots.txt”, over and over again, you are listening to someone who isn’t listening to you.

Plain and simple, just as our name so aptly states, we are web designers who want to partner with you–not lecture you on technical aspects or talk down to you with insider web page design jargon. We know precisely what works and what doesn’t.

You only have a few seconds to engage visitors. Clever visual design and animation will never do it alone. You also need to harness the power of simple language. Facebook’s homepage, for instance, declares: ‘Facebook helps you connect and share with the people in your life.’ What could be clearer than that? —Inc.com

Flash is Out, Simplicity is In

Simple, clean, accessible and mobile-friendly is our Web design philosophy. That’s why we won’t waste your time–or our own–selling you on flash animation and silly embellishments, which are nothing more than holes on the Internet.

Our web design service gets visitors right to the most important aspects of your site. We put our focus there because it’s where your customers will instinctively go. And nothing is more paramount than serving your visitors, than making the site useful and informative, then delivering on the promises made when your site pops-up in the search results.

Custom Website Design With Our Customers In-Mind

According to CNN Money, when visitors land on your site, they expect, in fact, demand, to find what they’re looking for. And that’s our approach to effective, custom website design. We think about the end-user through every step of the development and design process:

  • Intuitive navigation. This is where we stand out. Every website designer knows sites have to be navigable, but many let aesthetics get in the way–we won’t and we don’t.
  • Striking a balance. Speaking of aesthetics, there’s certainly a necessity for them. But functionality is where the real payoff comes from. That’s why we offer services like responsive design and e-commerce.
  • Making important information conspicuous. Visitors do want to go on an Easter egg hunt to find what they’re looking for–and we don’t dye cyber eggs. Our designs avoid the back button–the third-most tapped keyboard button–according to a study conducted by Nielson.
  • Site transparency. A huge visitor turn-off hiding behind stock images and cookie-cutter graphics. We give your site personality and put a face on the brand.

If you are looking for a web design specialists that aren’t just flashy and following here-today-gone-tomorrow trends, then we’re the firm for you. Thanks to communication advancements, we may be a Website design company in the Hudson Valley, though our clients are located throughout the Northeast. We can take your business–be it in Manhattan, Queens, the Bronx, Brooklyn, Long Island, or anywhere else in New York City or in the tri-state area–and give it an engaging online presence that turns casual visitors into repeat customers.
