Web Site Design

Pastiche Design started out only offering traditional web sites that we meticulously designed, wrote and hard-coded. We pride ourselves with only offering authentic designs. However, technology has advanced and we noticed a shift in what our clients were wanting in a web site.  People started asking for web sites that they could maintain themselves with little to no web expertise. We now offer two types of web sites, Traditional and WYSIWYG.

Traditional web design

In traditional web site design, the site is designed and coded in its entirety by Pastiche Design. This option allows us to customize the design based on your wants and needs with no restrictions and no one else will ever have your exact web site design. We recommend this style of design for those that simply don’t have any interest in maintaining their site themselves, have specific designs or branding in mind or for those with a base level of html knowledge.

WYSIWYG web design

Technologies now exist where we can create a theme-based web site using third parties such as Wordpress, Drupal or Joomla, which allow you to use web-based software to maintain the site yourself. The beauty of this option is you can edit your site from virtually anywhere with very little html knowledge; all you need is an Internet connection. These sites use WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) technology, which allows the content you are editing to appear closely to what it will look like when published, enabling the lay person to easily edit copy and make minor layout changes.  Pastiche Design will provide you with all the tools you need to maintain your site as you see fit.

With either option, we also ensure your site is thoroughly accessible to all users, browsers, connections and screen sizes. Web users with disabilities use many alternative technologies to access the web, so it is important to consider this fact when designing. In addition, some people may have a slower Internet connection, use outdated browsers, or even more common, access web sites from their mobile devices. Pastiche Design considers all these factors when building out a site to ensure every visitor has the same experience.
