These days, almost anyone can build a website. So, you may ask yourself, why would someone choose us to build it for them? The answer is, we build more than websites, we build experiences.
Just like the majority of verbal communication is actually non-verbal, the majority of communication on a website is not done through the text on the page. Users breathe in all elements of a website, and issues such as tone, branding, trust, authenticity, and a bevy of other issues affect the overall website interaction. As such, it takes razor-sharp vision and well-coordinated execution to truly connect on all levels.
The desire to build a great website is a desire to craft a great experience. Design matters. Usability matters. Well thought-out architecture and labeling matters. A smooth, intuitive flow of all interactive elements of a website matter, and the problem with violating any of these sensibilities is that users will leave without telling you why. There are few prizes for the ones who almost get it right.
So where do we come in? Not only do we truly practice everything we are describing, we have a nearly unending passion for crafting exceptional experiences. Nothing makes us happier than creating win/win situations. We live for working that extra bit harder, for daring to be more innovative, for taking the time to truly understand what people are looking for and building the ideal vehicle to deliver it to them. In our minds, especially online, if you are not exceptional, you are just one of the millions of “other” sites that are on the Internet.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
Here is what we believe. We believe that excellence comes from hiring and inspiring exceptional people. We believe that the most productive people are the ones who are allowed to be engaged in what makes them happy. We believe that having clear, unshakable vision for what a project can be is often what takes it from good to great. We believe that outstanding success often comes from unexpected places. We believe that it is the people who make greatness happen, and we believe it is important to treat them that way. We believe that enabling people to be successful enables entire groups and organizations to succeed. We believe that the great ideas of tomorrow will not come from doing the same things we are doing today.
At 1123, we revel in the opportunity to help people be successful; whether it is the end users of a project, our clients, or even our staff. For us, nothing is better than finding the win/win/win solution to a business opportunity. At 1123, we make websites, websites that work.
