Phoenix Arizona Website Design - Development - Content Strategy
ruly elegant design incorporates top-notch functionality into a simple uncluttered form. Tension Design prides itself on approaching every project with passion, research and unique creativity. Our approach, tuned through years of experience is simple and effective. We believe websites should be updated frequently to keep up with user demands, the latest technology, and design trends. Good design will eliminate all unnecessary details. With the ever growing number of people accessing the web, your website needs to work on all devices such as desktop computers, laptops, tablets and smart phones. Users want the information and they want it fast. Every detail goes into our site design to ensure the user does not have to think. Web design is responsive design. Responsive web design is web design done right. It's art if it can't be explained. It's fashion if no one asks for an explanation. It's design if it doesn't need an explanation. Always remember the web is the ultimate customer-empowering environment. He or she who clicks the mouse gets to decide everything. It is so easy to go elsewhere; all the competitors in the world are but a click away.
“Cheap design is often like a tattoo. Once you get it, you are forever branded by it. Bad design shouts at you. Simplicity will stand out, while complexity will get lost in the crowd.”

“Consistency is one of the most powerful usability principles: when things always behave the same, users don't have to worry about what will happen. Instead, they know what will happen.”
ow, design in the absence of content is not design, it's decoration. Note: content precedes design. One of the key aspects of SEO (search engine optimization) is giving useful information through good design and high quality writing, all this passing through clean code with cross-browser support will help increase the number of visitors to your website and further a higher position in the search engines. How many times have you searched to find what you were looking for, only to find the website was so poorly designed, nonfunctional, or hard to navigate, you went elsewhere? This happens everyday. Users want simple, functional, quick loading pages built around a modern clean design. Having good, relevant content is the most important aspect of Search Engine Optimization. The content needs to be suitably useful for users who you would want to find your website. Just as important as having great content, is having regularly updated content. Fresh content will bring in users and the search engines alike which in turn will let your site get indexed at a higher frequency which will return fresher results in searches. Don't feed pages full of industry jargon that just confuse visitors. The user and Google can see right through this!
“Fire the committee. No great website in the history of the web has been conceived of by more than three people. Not one ever. This is a deal breaker!”
How Much Does It Cost?
Unfortunately this seems to be the most important question we get asked. It appears most clients don't ask how long we have been in business, or if we out-source, (we do not out-source... ever!) use templates, or how are customer support is (we retain a 100% customer satisfaction rating). Below you will find a good starting point on how we base our pricing. We do offer different tiers of discounts depending on the project and we always do our best to work within a clients budget and goal.
