Working with Hooked On Code Illinois Web Design & Development Agency
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?
- we will be responsive and easy to work with and get ahold of.
- the process will be delightful.
- we will leave you with a website that is easy to edit and change as you wish.

Built In, Not Bolted On
Derek Featherstone is the Chief Experience Officer at Level Access, where he focuses on ensuring that accessibility and inclusion are an integral part of creating outstanding customer experiences. He’s been working on the web since 1999 when he left his career as a high school teacher to start his own web design company, and also compete in a few Ironman triathlons. Today, Derek is here to explore ways of making sure products and designs are accessible right from the start of the project, instead of trying to wedge it in at the last minute.

Accessible Data and Sound
The Eclipse Soundscapes: Citizen Science Project (ES: CSP) will introduce accessible opportunities for citizen scientists to participate in real and meaningful scientific research focusing on how eclipses affect Earth’s life. Regine and her students have conducted in-depth research to create a multi-sensory experience related to the 2023 and 2024 Eclipse. This talk will discuss the analysis and design behind making a web application focused on accessibility for the NASA Eclipse Soundscapes project. Together we will explore what it means to create accessible experiences related to science, sound, and data. This presentation is based upon work supported by NASA under project Eclipse Soundscapes: Citizen Science Project, award No. 80NSSC21M0008.
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.

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.
