Welcome to Global Village Design - Design with a Social Conscience

SEO. Social Media. CMS. Templates. Blogging. Responsive Design. eCommerce. The list of buzzwords goes on and on.

Developing 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 website is going to be prohibitively expensive and hesitate about moving forward. Primarily servicing the areas around Toronto, ranging from Milton to Peterborough, 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, your likes and dislikes and your timelines and budget and then together plan out the solution that is right for you.

If you have a site already the approach is similar however we also factor in your experiences and look at things such as whether you are looking for an overdue visual facelift or new functionality or ???

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.
