Planning a new website is exciting! Our professional team of designers and developers work with you on every step of the process to make sure that the website we create addresses all of your needs. We make your site easy to use from any desktop or mobile device, drawing visitors in, keeping them there and completing a desired action, like filling out a form, signup sheet or making a purchase.

It’s critical that your website looks great on any size screen. If a website is hard to use on a mobile device, or doesn’t have the convenient features of most modern sites, people can become frustrated with the experience and leave the site. We understand this, and create your website’s look and feel from the ground up to include a beautiful design that works on any device, and cutting edge mobile friendly functions that add real value to your site for you and your users.

We design most of our websites in WordPress because it’s simple for anyone to manage, update and refine. WordPress provides a reliable, open-source foundation that is both easy and versatile for the user to keep up to date. Plus, we figure since the platform is used by The New Yorker, Best Buy, E-bay and Google, it’s a good bet for our clients.

Web Maintenance and Search Engine Optimization

Once your website is completed and online, there can be some care and up-keep to make sure it’s functioning at peak capacity. The Uptown Studios web team is ready to tackle any web maintenance problems or needs you may have. We have experience in resolving a wide variety of computing issues and can even provide hands-on web maintenance training for your team.

Making sure people can find your website with online search engines like Google, Yahoo and Bing are important for any organization. Let our Google certified specialists help navigate you through the world of SEO, SEM and digital marketing tools like Google AdWords and Google Analytics.

California Craft Brewers AssociationA Web Design Case Study Title

The California Craft Brewers Association connects and empowers the craft brewers of California through advocacy, education and communication. Uptown Studios was hired to design and implement their member website as well as the website for their premier event, The California Craft Beer Summit. For both sites we employed a rich, earthy palette and bold, contemporary typography. The website features a members only section as well as a craft brewery map to easily locate your favorite brewers throughout California.

The CCBA website required several custom modules be created to enhance the front end experience while keeping the back end of the website easy to edit and maintain.

They required a robust events management system which allowed for events to be displayed as either a full calendar or in a list style format. We utilized the popular Events Manager Pro plugin, which is great for designing custom layouts through the use of its built in template tags.

For the 2016 Summit Event ‘microsite’ we build several custom modules for things like the Summit Event Speaker Timeline, the Summit Beer Festival Brewers Showcase, and the 2016 speakers lineup. To create such custom modules we relied heavily on the use of a plugin called Advanced Custom Fields Pro which outputs custom field data from various post types onto custom built template pages.
