|Morningstar Design is a professional web design firm, established in 1998. The Partners, Christine M. Lemay and Chad E. Kopcak, have formerly been employed by web design departments of local Internet Service Providers. The knowledge they have garnered working for larger corporations has proved invaluable.
A key feature of the design process is the involvement of the client through each phase of the project; starting with the first meeting, continuing with the designs review and wrapping up with the client’s final approval of the site. The relationship rarely stops there, however. Web sites must continually be updated if they are to draw return visits from end-users.
On a more technical note, web site design goes deeper than appearance. It involves clear navigation, optimal download time, and the ability to be “found” by search engines. Also important is compatibility across the major web browsers (Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari, Bing, Chrome, Opera, etc.), and across various hardware (PCs, Macs, Tablets, Phones).
That is what we are here for
you, taking your individual goals in mind! Not only do we strive for
excellence in creativity and design, we are willing to take that extra step to help you successfully market
We have over 14 years of
graphic & web design experience. As you will see from our
sample list of clients, we go a step beyond simply putting the information up on a website. What you
dont see is the code backing the overall format and function of your pages, all of
which is very precise and clean and which ensures that your pages look the way they should
when viewed through the different browsers (i.e. Mozilla
Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari, Bing, Chrome, Opera, etc.). Each page contains the proper Meta-tags which allows your site to be found by
various search engines. What you see is a page tailored both to your content and your
style...we portray your personality through your web page! Navigation is clear, concise and prevents the
viewer from getting "lost".
We keep current with new technology, hardware and software. Below is a
list of tools we use:
- Adobe Photoshop CS6
- Illustrator CS6
- InDesign CS6
- Fireworks CS6
- SVBuilder Pro
Other areas of expertise:
- Windows and Macintosh Platforms
- Microsoft Products such as PowerPoint, Microsoft
Word, Microsoft Works, Excel and Access.
- Dreamweaver CS6
- Database driven websites
- Flash CS6
Note: Custom Code and
Programming available. Many designers rely on HTML Editors to create their web page documents.
At Morningstar Design, the designers know the raw HTML code. This is key to keeping your code simple and effective, which in turn affects the functionality and download time of your web pages.
