Web Design & Development

We know you have a lot of choices when selecting a firm to help redesign your website. So what sets Beaconfire apart? At Beaconfire, we excel at results-driven user experience. A great website needs to do more than just look pretty. It needs to deliver the engagement outcomes your organization needs to meet its mission.  To do that we bring together strategy, brand, creative, messaging, technology, and passion. Our expertise includes:

  • A deep understanding of the unique challenges nonprofits face
  • The science of information architecture and usability best practices
  • The art of creating an engaging user experience
  • The technology chops to build and integrate a Website that delivers results
  • Analytic skills to set up tracking, reporting, and dashboards

Our web design and development process starts with understanding you and your online priorities – raising money, inspiring activism, building a community, or elevating awareness – after which we apply our proven design methodology to create an inspiring, clean, and user-friendly online presence. Our work includes:

  • Designing compelling responsive websites
  • Building custom web applications, databases, and reporting systems
