Welcome to Global Village Web - Design with a Social ConscienceDeveloping a website - whether that means creating a new web presence or redesigning an existing site - can be a daunting proposition, but one that is essential for any business. We understand this and we like to try and make things as straightforward as possible for you. Too often people may assume that a web site is going to be prohibitively expensive and it may deter them from taking the plunge, however Global Village Design works with you to maximize your budget. A custom design that is created for your business and tastes is more affordable than you may think.
We focus on helping small to medium sized clients. We believe that a personal touch is important to the success of your project, and as such we enjoy building a relationship that will go beyond the inital development of yor website. We begin with an analysis of your goals and needs - is it a visual facelift that is overdue or perhaps new functionality for your site? - your likes and dislikes and your timelines and budget and plan out the solution that is right for you. This would usually be a perfect oportunity to give you a link to our portfolio or testimonials but....
Keeping it Fresh...the time has come for us to put our money where our mouth is. Nowadays it can be important for your website to work well on a variety of screens, meaning an adaptable or responsive design. Like the proverbial cobbler's children who go without shoes our website has been in need of work but not given the attention it deserved. The same way that you may want a new look and feel to your site or your needs have evolved and you wish the site to function differently, we realize that it is time to give our own house a thorough cleaning, so...
...please be patient while we overhaul our own site as well!
Design with a Social Conscience?People wonder about this somewhat odd catch-phrase or slogan. Design. Social Conscience. Not what you usually put together, and seemingly unrelated to a web site design company. We disagree. Our philosophy is Reach Globally, Design Locally, paraphrasing a well-known saying intended to reflect the idea that our local community is part of the global community - the "we're in this together" premise.
And here is where our concept of Design with a Social Conscience kicks in. Global Village Design provides Green Web Hosting that is 100% Wind Powered. By taking advantage of hosting where the power usage is offset through the use of Green Tags we are proud to say that each of our clients is acting as a good corporate citizen. We also want you to feel that choosing us for your project is a positive step in more ways than one so we proudly donate a portion of the cost of your web development project to Kiva.
Kiva is a non-profit organization with a mission to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty. Leveraging the internet and a worldwide network of microfinance institutions, Kiva lets individuals lend as little as $25 to help create opportunity around the world. Our most recent loan recipient is showcased in the colum to the right.
