Design

Design is the root of what we do.

Custom Design

We believe that every client is distinct, every project unique. Our style is clean, uncluttered, and steeped in the principals of design. What we lack in über-creativity is made up for in precision hierarchy.

User Experience

Designing a delightful interface should go beyond skin deep. Every design decision we make improves the experience for your customers and enhances the usability of the site. Ha-cha-cha.

Responsive Design

Responsive Design is an art in understanding expectations at a variety of screens sizes. We were early adopters of the technique, continue to push its bounds, and include it in every project we do.

Content Strategy

The first step towards an authentic, comprehensive website that does what’s its supposed to do

Research

We need to understand your business, your customers, and your goals before we can solve your problems. Research is the cornerstone to creating a site that will perform to the highest level of expectation.

Strategy

If research is the gathering of facts, strategy is the plan of attack. We determine your keyword focus, the content you need, site navigation hierarchy and more to provide a blueprint for success.

Wireframes

Wireframes are the bible from which we swear our oath. A guiding light for design, development, and content. Cumbersome and oft overwrought, they are simultaneously sledgehammer and scalpel.

Development

The first step towards an authentic, comprehensive website that does what’s its supposed to do

WordPress

We build on WordPress. It’s open source, rock solid, and easy for you to use. Our core template is built on Hybrid Core, the most forward thinking WP framework on the planet.

Standards

We believe in coding up a site the right way. That means Standards. Yes, standards change which is why we strive to stay up on the latest. HTML5, CSS3, jQuery; Got it.

Front End

While we mostly build on WordPress, it’s not exclusive. We also develop for other platforms such as Ghost and Magento. We also do straight HTML5, CSS3, Git, and Sass.

We can host your site on a state of the art server located in a top-tier datacenter. Cinch Hosting is a joint venture between Spigot and our good friends at Studio2 in St. Paul Minnesota, and is exclusive to clients we work with.

Logo Design

Whether you’re building a brand from the ground up or looking to inject a bit of freshness into an established business identity, our experienced design team will craft a unique logo that truly represents your company.

Template Websites

Not every business has the budget to create a custom website. Your business shouldn’t have to suffer with a poor quality site, however. We’re in the process of creating a series of templates based on our rock solid WordPress stack.
