"agressive marketing and flawless design"
To create an effective Web site takes much more than HTML coding and computer skills. It takes advanced graphic design skills and strategic internet marketing expertise.
Blue Cat Design's founder and Creative Director, Christine Collie Rowland, as project manager, brings more than twenty years of design and marketing expertise to your Web site project.
She has assembled a talented team of professional web designers, copywriters, illustrators, animators, programmers and internet marketing specialists that can offer a level of experience and quality rarely found in today's Web market.
The Blue Cat Design team are old hands when it comes to the Net; we've been immersed in Web design and internet marketing since 1995. We have created more than 300 Web sites for a diverse international clientele in Canada, United States, Australia, Mexico, and the Caribbean. View our online portfolio.
Our experience can help your organization benefit immediately and aid in positioning your business online for long-term growth. We make it our business to help you effectively promote your products and services to a global market.
Web Site Creation for New Sites
We can create your Web "storefront" incorporating elements of your existing promotional materials to enhance your current marketing campaign. Or we can custom design your Web site from start to finish, including complete art and design, copy writing, scanning and color correction of product photos, and custom backgrounds, icons, clickable buttons, and streaming Flash animations.
If you're ready for e-commerce, we can help. We've produced many online stores for clients, and can offer strategies and online store design that help increase online sales.
We can get you on the Web in record time. Turnaround time for a typical custom design of a 10-15 page business site is often 2-4 weeks from the date of receiving the order and client text and image files. A 50 page site typically takes 8-10 weeks to develop. We make every effort to accommodate special "rush" situation jobs.
Web Site Redesign
If your business has an existing Web site that's not getting the attention you had hoped for, Blue Cat Design can add the design elements that bring it to life and make it sparkle. And we can provide the online marketing expertise to get you exposure.
We can also provide custom illustrations and animations including Flash online commercials and banner ads designed specifically for quick-loading and smooth playback on the Web.
We don't use clip art - all the graphics on our client sites are custom created by us for their site. This ensures a distinctive look. Blue Cat Design has been creating award-winning Web sites since 1995. Our experience shows in every client site we produce.
And if your company doesn't have the in-house expertise to support and update your home pages after your Web site launch, we can offer this website maintenance services for a low monthly/yearly fee. Establishing a Web presence has never been more affordable or hassle-free.
Or if you're just unsure about your current site and its effectiveness, we also offer a Website Appraisal Consulting Service or full-blown Website Usability Testing.
Web Site Promotion & Search Engine Marketing
Blue Cat Design has had a 100% success rate at getting client sites listed at the top of search engine results since 1995. Our internet marketing specialists have learned the search engine optimization techniques that work. We've had ongoing success generating targeted website traffic to client websites through SEO copywriting and ethical search engine optimization services for a complete search engine positioning and sales conversion strategy.
Our search engine marketing services include: search engine optimization of page code, copywriting for search engines, manual submission to search engines, link popularity campaigns, search engine optimization consulting and training of your staff, site launch and site re-launch campaigns.

Our process is to find out the job specifications, then provide a written quotation so you know the projects costs before starting. When we receive a signed quotation and a deposit, together with the text and image files or photos, then we schedule the project.
Work will be displayed as Web pages at a private, unpublished Web address known only to the client, instead of print layouts or storyboards, in order for the client to see a true working prototype in its real medium. This is the only reliable process for Web design and production capable of demonstrating whether or not a design translates well on the Web.
Revisions can be easily and quickly displayed back via the Web for you to view at your convenience. This makes for quick and easy access for client approvals and feedback.
We currently handle projects this "wired" way for clients in Canada, United States, Australia, Mexico and the Caribbean. It's a simple process and communications are easily handled with e-mail, fax and telephone.
Initial telephone consultation is free of charge. Our process and pricing method is straightforward.
