Responsive Web Design
Responsive web design focuses heavily on user experience across devices, delivering a similar look and feel regardless of whether a user is accessing the page from a desktop computer, a tablet, or a smartphone. CC&A recommends clients move to a responsive web design to preserve their online connection with consumers.
The Power of Responsive Design
If you’ve ever gone to a mobile website and been greeted with elementary navigation or a full-scale website that’s been miniaturized to the point of illegibility, you know why responsive design is so important. More consumers than ever are accessing information on the go. If they can’t get the same seamless, sleek, and easy to read experience on a mobile device as they get on a desktop monitor, they may move to a more accessible competitor site.
At CC&A, we understand what your company’s website needs to reflect your mission and stand out from the competition. As part of our responsive design services, our team:
- Uses art and science to create powerful responsive web designs from the ground up
- Follows Google’s guidelines to develop optimized, device-friendly sites
- Transforms brands for modern users while preserving key branding elements
- Optimizes content to deliver useful, concise information to site visitors
- Elevates site navigation to encourage natural website exploration patterns
- Diversifies content and site elements for visual appeal
CC&A’s Responsive Design for Today and Tomorrow
If you plan on growing your business, start thinking about incorporating responsive design into your current marketing strategy. Whether you need to migrate your current site to a more responsive design or you’re ready to develop a website from the ground up, we can help. Contact our team today to learn more.
Content Management Systems
Content management systems make it easy for organizations to create and modify web content that appears online. Through a centralized interface, users can use premade or custom-designed templates to update page information, upload documents, and post media. Content management systems have positively transformed the way organizations approach online activity.
Content Management Systems for Every Sized Business
Without a content management system, your company may need to hire or outsource a dedicated website manager, which may not be a bad thing depending on your business model and how your organization generates revenue. However, if you organization does need a CMS, the system allows anyone who has been given administrative rights to go into the back-end of the website and make changes. At CC&A, we believe empowering companies to do more is a fantastic business tactic.
Our team is ready to help you find the content management system that matches your needs, customize the tools you use most, or develop a system from scratch. A content management system can improve your ability to connect with your target audience every day. We have experience working with WordPress, Umbraco, Joomla, and Drupal just to name a few.

One of the most popular open source content management systems, WordPress is used by individuals and commercial enterprises alike. Although you may be most familiar with WordPress as a blog creator, it has transformed over the years to include extensive functionality as a content management system with a variety of themes, widgets, and plugins available for customization.
Although you can download the software for free, certain features are only available at a cost. Unless you have the technical skill to customize the platform for your needs, you may need the help of a professional development firm like CC&A.
WordPress Powers a Large Portion of Websites
Large websites you may use every day like Forbes, Facebook Newsroom, and Time Inc. are powered by WordPress, which can help companies optimize content for SEO, develop a useable sitemap, edit large segments of content, and change page themes and media. As part of our WordPress services, CC&A can help you:
- Determine the features of WordPress that will be most beneficial to your company
- Download and customize the system for ease of use in everyday online activities

An open source content management system, Umbraco is used by individuals and companies around the world to make website management a little easier. With easy-to-use templates and a user-friendly interface, many companies prefer Umbraco as their content management system for blogs, websites, and more.
Although anyone can download the system for free, you may want to consult with a professional website team before trying to install and customize the system for commercial use. Some services commonly used for commercial purposes are only available for a fee.
Umbraco Provides Custom Content Management
Some users prefer Umbraco over most content management systems for its general look and feel, and customizations. Ultimately, each company should evaluate the benefits of the various content management systems separately to find the system that makes the most sense for business use. At CC&A, we can help you find the right content management system by showing you the differences between each open source platform. Umbraco offers its own unique set of plugins, themes, and templates, but our team can also custom-produce add-ons that will work best for your team and your website.

Joomla is one of several open source content management systems available for private and commercial use. Joomla routinely supports web content from online reservation applications to corporate websites. Like other content management systems, the basic software can be downloaded for free, but commercial products that enhance the way the management system operates are generally only available for a fee. At CC&A, we help our clients download, customize, and start using Joomla to improve online forums.
Joomla Simplifies Web Development
A web designer uses code to create what you see and interact with online every day. Content management systems allow web developers to hand over certain website tasks to everyday businessmen. With an easy-to-use interface that allows users to upload, change, optimize, or redirect content, companies can take more control over their marketing activities with website solutions like Joomla.
The team at CC&A uses content management systems like Joomla to help our clients get started whether they’ve been around computers all their lives or have never read a single line of code. We can help you find or develop plugins and applications that extend the usefulness of Joomla as your content management system.

The Drupal content management system is routinely used by governments, schools, and companies around the world. It offers a flexible open source content management system that makes updating, uploading, or editing web content easy for both tech savvy and non-tech savvy users.
Although the system can be downloaded and used immediately, the basic tool will not have all the features your business needs to meet marketing goals. In many ways, the initial download is merely a framework from which a web developer can create a customized content management system. That’s where CC&A comes in.
CC&A Helps Companies Customize Drupal
Once you’ve decided Drupal is your content management system of choice, we can help you determine how the Drupal system can meet your corporate needs. Often, we develop customized plugins and themes for our clients to make the online experience wholly unique for a company or organization. Many of our clients rely on Drupal for website updates, while others also use it for developing interactive forms and modules online.

E-commerce / Shopping Carts
