How Mitchtruswell started their web page design journey
Supplied on request.
We're new, we're small and we're go-getters. We're not your Father's public relations firm. We are used to multi-tasking and are experts at getting attention for our customers. We're also friendly and well-known in our market for our media expertise. We have a team of Emmy award winning journalists with big market experience. We're looking for design that is different, simple, clean and reflects the combination of new media and traditional channels.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We target mid to large size local and national businesses looking for a way to increase their exposure, web presence and business. We want potential customers to see us as experienced but also current as to what's going on now with all things media.
Clean design that encourages site stickiness and uses proper pathing techniques, information architecture and is clean, simple but visually interesting. Can have some web 2.0 elements but not a full-on web 2.0 design. Think apple app. design!
Additionally, we have a strong background in Journalism & Media and use that expertise to benefit our clients, so please reflect this in the design.
