Pemaquid Communications, LLC focuses on using the latest techniques in accessible and standards-compliant Web design to create sites that provide dynamic, useful online experiences for our Clients and those who use their Web sites.
ACCESSIBLE WEB DESIGN
Pemaquid is a leading developer of Web sites that are accessible to the visually and physically impaired. We adhere to Best Practices for Accessible Web Design as defined by the World Wide Web Consortium’s Web Accessibility Initiative, Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act and the State of Maine’s Web Accessibility Policy.
People with disabilities who visit your Web site have just as much right to information as other visitors. Pemaquid will help you make sure they get it.
EASY-TO-USE, CUSTOM CONTENT MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS
Pemaquid has developed custom, dynamic database-driven CMS systems for handling many types of content. We’ve customized our Pemaquid Content Manager for state agencies, financial institutions, tourism businesses, even dairies. We have modules for news, blogs, membership directories, events calendars, job boards, resource libraries and photo galleries.
Our Content Manager helps whoever, manage whatever, whenever, wherever.
ATTRACTIVE & ATHLETIC
They say that design and typography exist to honor content. At Pemaquid, we create fully accessible, easy-to-manage Web sites in which the technology does not compromise the visual appeal.
BULLETPROOF xHTML & CSS
We develop all our sites to Web Standards. What that means is that your site will render beautifully on all major browsers (IE6, IE7, IE8, Firefox, Safari, Opera, Chrome) and many others as well. Our code base is lean, meaning it’ll download quickly, is optimized for search engines and assistive devices, and is easy to update.
Structure (xHTML) is separate from Presentation (CSS) meaning updates are more easily done, are less time-consuming – and less expensive.
In 2009, the Web is a place where people easily socialize. Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and YouTube allow people to share content more easily than ever. People have a high expectation that your Web site allow this kind of sharing.
With our development toolbox, Pemaquid can bring the social to your site, to meet the needs of your site visitors and provide a great user experience.
