Web Design

WebsiteWe build functional websites that are attractive, quick, intuitive, enhance the customer experience, and generate sales.

Gearbox Marketing builds websites that combine the latest design features and responsive functionality that suit desktop, mobile, and tablet applications.

Like anything we’re involved in, we are mindful of the most important balance between form and function. An attractive website is important to build interest, image, and intrigue–all important attributes for your brand, but functionality is always key in creating effective customer experiences. Attractive, Clean, Readable, Intuitive, and Effective are the buzzwords we live with.

Maybe you’ve encountered a web design shop that will build a 2 or 3 page template with some stock images and Lorem Ipsum content, a content management system and sends you on your way. If you need more than that, like some effective re-touched images, content, and a demonstrated understanding of your business, brand, and value proposition, then we can help.

Is your website responsive?

If you don’t know what that means, it’s likely an indication that the answer is “no”. A responsive website is simply a website that is designed to function well on both desktop and mobile devices. In other words, if you are using your phone, you don’t just get a glimpse of a small section of the page – or you don’t get a miniature version of the entire web page on your device. Responsive design recognizes the type of device that is being used and then optimizes sizing and dimensions for that device – see image below.

If you think it’s time to make your website more suitable for viewing on all devices, give us a call!

We’re located in Kitchener, in Ontario – the ‘centre of the universe’ for some and perhaps ‘the place to come from’ for others – but given the relatively affordable landscape, we don’t have to jack our prices. And, because of the nature of our business, we’re not limited by geography. With clients from BC to Italy and several stope in between, we are able to get things done quite well online.

And when the project calls for it, we’re not averse to hitting the road. The customer always comes first and we’re happy to pack our bags in order to get things done.
