Whether you're in the Chicago area or halfway across the globe, we build websites that engage visitors, communicate clearly, navigate easily, look great and most importantly, elicit action. Best of all, every website we design includes a Content Management System on the back-end for control of the website's content, pages, images and navigation from a easy-to-use secure web-based administrative interface.
Serving clients in the Chicago area as well as nationwide, our team of web design professionals have the creative talent, experience and technical skills to make your site stand out from the competition.
We're a cutting edge web development company and full service creative agency rolled into one. We approach your website from both a technical and a marketing approach. Technically, our development team is as adept at implementing the latest web standards, programming techniques and online marketing strategies. Now, combine that with our in-house art direction, creative design and marketing staff, as well as in-house photography, video production and multimedia services, you have a web development power-house that is unmatched in the industry.
We believe you should be able to make updates to your site anytime you want to - simply, easily and from just about anywhere you're at. That's why every site we develop includes content management. The Pure Imagination Content Management System gives our customers control over their site's content in an extremely easy to use, intuitive web-based administrative interface. It's easy to learn and use, but at the same time it's also very robust, powerful, customizable and expandable. And best of all, it's a future proof solution that doesn't break when technologies and browsers change.
Over 90% of the sites we develop are built on the Pure Imagination Content Management System which was designed and developed by us in-house from the ground up. For clients who specifically require other content management systems such as Wordpress or Drupal, we also build sites on those platforms as well.
There's a reason, however, that most of our clients end up choosing our Content Management System for their website. After comparing the options, they see why we went to trouble of building our own. It's extremely simple to use, highly customizable, only has the features and functions you want built into your website and it's easily expandable in the future. The user interface was designed to be so simple and intuitive to use that anyone in any organization can use it with little to no training. In short, it's better than anything out there - and more of our clients choose it over any other CMS solution.
Our Content Management System was developed by us in-house from the ground up. Although there are numerous commercial and open source CMS solutions available today, we found through our own research that most of them try to be all things to all people with a single standard offering, and unfortunately either ease of use or the ability to customize and expand was lacking.
Our Content Management System is easier to use than most word processors, and anyone without absolutely any knowledge of website programming or development can use the Content Management System and instantly take control of the content of the website.
No matter how much we tried to imagine what every customer would want in a Content Management System, we realized that customers will always have special custom requirements. So we built our Content Management System with an open framework to seamlessly integrate custom modules that we develop for clients along with the standard modules already designed into our Content Management System in the same easy to use administrative interface. It's truly the best of both worlds.
We develop e-commerce website solutions that are flexible, customizable and designed to effectively sell your products online. Our standard e-commerce product offering is very robust and flexible and covers almost 90% of customers needs "out of the box." We also have the ability to customize any type of solutions or features necessary to produce an effective overall solution based on clients unique needs.
