We’d like to get you an estimate as fast as you do. Answering some questions about the project and your corporation help us prepare estimate ranges quickly so they can be discussed on the phone when we talk.

Discuss project scope and timeline.

We’ll spend some time together on the phone after we ensure what you need is within our specialty, and plan out the project scope and timeline together. We’ll also set your project launch date which is then included in the project contract.

Do the rest of your job while we make magic happen.

You’ll see progress during (and enjoy) each website review call, will have continual confirmation of your upcoming launch date, and even learn how to make changes to the site internally when it’s complete… all within less than 10 hours of your time.

Our Web Design Agency is a Partner NOT a Vendor

What is the difference and why should you care?

A web design and development agency vendor will complete any tasks as they are sent to them, but views your website tasks as a mere to-do list, rarely offering constructive feedback unless prompted.

A partner web design agency has your back in all things concerning your website.

We see your website as our personal responsibility to help it succeed and care deeply about your messaging and the user experience offered to your customers. We view your website from a dual perspective, as both a business owner and as a customer.

We will consider important factors like…

  • How will the visitors on your website receive your messaging?
  • Are visitors receiving an excellent experience?
  • Will they easily find what they are looking for?
  • Tasks that are sent to our web design team are not simply implemented but also thought through to make sure you are presented with the best solutions available.

Our website design team at Hooked On Code is trained to look for ways to improve your customer’s experience and ensure you, as a business owner, are aware of all issues that arise as well as any areas in which we can improve your messaging so that you are clearly communicating with everyone who visits your website.

This begs the question: Why hire another vendor when you can have a partner who functions as an extension of your team?

Challenging the Web Design Industry Norms

Recently named One of the 10 Most Disruptive Women in Technology for 2022, Torre encourages the team here at Hooked On Code web design agency to constantly challenge the traditional norms of the web development industry, combatting various accepted standard operating procedures that she believes lead to overpromised expectations and inflexible solutions.

By understanding her clients’ difficulties, Torre has cultivated a work culture that focuses on creating a delightful experience without putting unnecessary responsibility on the client for providing all aspects of the website content, ranging from images to text. Instead, built into Hooked On Code’s proven process are action-oriented steps where the team gathers content and drafts it for review and approval, rather than putting the burden completely on the already busy client. Hooked On Code is continuously streamlining its operations with further simplified processes with the hope of eventually creating transformative shifts in the industry.

Your company’s website has never been in better (or softer) hands.

Elements Heard, Not Seen

Voice interfaces like Amazon Alexa, Google Home, and others are products we understand as users, but can feel impenetrable when we’re asked to design for them. When the only context our users have in front of them is a smart speaker without a screen, where do we even begin? In a world where navigation becomes negotiation—where scrolling becomes speaking—voice interaction design demands that we treat our canvas as time, not space. Preston will show how to connect the dots between familiar elements we’ve long known and alien affordances we’re just beginning to understand.

Accessibility and Progressive Enhancement: A Framework for a More inclusive Web

What do progressive enhancement and accessibility have in common? They both put the user first. When combined, they create a more inclusive foundation and are a powerful framework that can change the way you approach designing and building for the Web. While Progressive Enhancement advocates for separating HTML, CSS, and JavaScript layers, it can also be used to connect these layers in a way that ensures a more accessible and inclusive end result.

In this talk, Sara will share how she strategically combines accessibility and progressive enhancement to create more inclusive products. From writing HTML enhanced with ARIA to using CSS to enforce accessibility requirements, and making sure JavaScript behavior meets user expectations, she will share design considerations and code techniques for creating more robust and resilient accessible digital experiences.

The Craft of Feedback

Poor or unstructured feedback can be destructive not only to our work, but also to the long-term morale of the team. Sometimes even when the content of feedback is good, the delivery can be so rough that it makes it hard to work with. But if we apply the right principles, feedback can be a force for change that allows projects to succeed, and even pushes you and your teammates to grow. Erin will dive deeply into the foundation of feedback from a cognitive perspective, synthesizing lessons and principles you can apply in your day-to-day work. Whether you’re a designer or a developer, a team lead or an IC, you’ll come away with powerfully transformative ideas for giving and getting feedback.
