Forget social media. Your website should be your most valuable marketing tool.

Pixel & Hammer

People are busy and have become exceptionally good at tuning out the "noise" around them. As a small business or organization, your website should be the most powerful, important marketing tool you possess. If someone visits your website and can’t immediately figure out what you do and how it benefits them, they’re gone. Quit spinning your tires trying to aimlessly grow your social media accounts, and quit losing business with a subpar website. From strategy, to design, to development, we build your website to be the most powerful tool you possess to grow your businesses.

Preserving natural beauty in Harrisburg

Wildwood Park is a beautiful nature reserve located in Harrisburg. Wildwood came to us looking to modernize their website with the focus of driving donations and volunteers.

Joseph’s Vintage Barbershop & Salon

Barbershop with 50+ years in business

Nick, second generation owner of Joseph’s Vintage, has been a national trainer and educator for John Paul Mitchell Systems for more than 35 years. Yet, instead of showcasing “quality” and “excellence,” their website felt amateur and dated. We worked with Joseph’s Vintage to provide a website as clean, modern, and stylish as the ‘dos they do.

Content
Focused

Too often overlooked or neglected, the written copy on your site plays a critical role to your sites’ success. In fact, your website should be so clear in who you are, what you do, and why it matters that a ten year old should be able to answer these within five seconds. With every website we build, we help you:

  • Clarify and simplify. We help you articulate your brand value proposition in way that is clear, compelling, and effective.
  • Call users to action. Not having a clear call to action is the number one predictor of an ineffective website. Our websites are written to clearly call users to specific, easy-to-take action.
  • Develop brand voicing. Your written copy needs to reflect your brand voice. Is your brand serious? Whimsical? Snarky? We help you write and develop a consistent voicing that supports who you are.

In the era of Instagram and access to Hollywood movies while standing in line at the grocery store, good design is no longer a luxury—it is 100% a necessity. We design all websites with meticulous attention to design and user experience, ensuring your website is beautiful down to the smallest detail, including:

  • Brand consistency. Typography, color, and imagery need to support and amplify your brand presence and value proposition
  • ADA Compliance. We pay attention to ADA Accessibility standards so you don’t have to.
  • Organizational hierarchy, ensuring that what matters most is front and center
  • White space, guiding and directing your users eyes and actions

Often overlooked and misunderstood, the success of a website hinges on the way it’s built. After all, if your site doesn’t load or gets hacked every week, it doesn’t matter how good it looks. At Pixel and Hammer, we develop all of our sites to be:

  • Secure. Using SSL encryption, we make sure that your site, as well as your users’ information, stays completely safe and secure.
  • Easily Editable. While the truth is that no website can last forever, we develop our sites to evolve with you! By building pre-stylized content blocks, we give you and your team the ability to easily and safely edit, add, or delete content—all on your own! This means that your website should easily last you half a decade or longer.
  • Safely hosted. While not required, we offer all clients in-house website hosting on our [256-bit encrypted] server.
