Oregon Web Design and Where to Find It

I’ve been pretty busy at Nocturnal Creative these last few years, and have now moved on to server side and firmware development. We took on our final ecommerce web design project in 2015, and if you are looking for business holiday cards and architecture holiday cards in particular, you’ll want to take a look at www.cardphile.com. Nocturnal Creative laid out the initial design for Cardphile, and then worked closely with Jesse Smith, of Mardesco Marketing and Web Design, who crafted most of the technical integrations.

So if you came here looking for web design, SEO, or Adwords Campaign management  in the Portland metro area, I highly recommend the team at Mardesco.



Mobile Websites – What they are and why you need one

Get a Mobile Website Today!

In the web development industry, mobile is one of the most important aspects in creating your website. All websites at Nocturnal Creative can be viewed on mobile devices. Making a website mobile, however, entails creating an entirely new website that is specifically optimized for viewing on a mobile device. One bad first experience of a website can send viewers away forever, and now-a-days this first experience often occurs on their very own mobile device.

Why shouldn’t I use Flash for my website?

Today, many web developers still use Adobe Flash to make visually appealing websites. The problem with Flash is that it vastly restricts your website’s ability to be found and processed quickly by the browser. Modern mark-up and scripting languages, such as HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript, however, have improved to the point where they can entirely replace Flash, and with far better results. You can get the same great interactive effects, with cleaner coding and faster load times.

Problems with Flash include…

  • Search engines, such as Google, cannot read anything in a website built with Flash. This makes it just about impossible for a potential customer to find your website when they enter keywords you want to rank for in a search engine (bad).
  • Flash requires a very long time to load. HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript, however, are all read by the browser with blazing speed (good).
  • Apple products, such as tablets and mobile devices (iPhones, iPads & iPod touches), DO NOT read Flash. Therefore, anyone using such a platform cannot view your website at all (very bad!).

At Nocturnal Creative, we understand that your website has a job to do—we’ll make sure that it not only looks great, but that it works great too!

NC focuses on building websites that you can manage yourself!

At Nocturnal Creative, we understand that one of the biggest challenges many small businesses face after completing a website design – is managing the content on their site.

You may already know that regular updates to the content on your website is an extremely important factor in SEO (search engine optimization) if you want to rank for your best keywords. Search engines, and Google in particular, are much more likely to move your site toward the top of the SERPs (Search Engine Results Pages) if they know that you are regularly providing valuable, and fresh, content.

But how can you do that if you have to contact your website developer, submit a request for content updates, wait until they have time for you in their schedule, and then pay them to make those changes?

Although you may not be willing, or have the time, to learn all there is to know about making major structural or design changes to your site, at Nocturnal Creative we design your new website so that you can control the things that matter once we’ve finished building your site. And all of our website packages include the training you need to easily manage content updates to your site entirely on your own.

Customer site-editing features include…

  • Loading your own YouTube videos
  • Adding images in the image library (showcase your travels, your cooking skills, or your team photos)
  • Easily post updates & images in your blog (that we will set up for you)
  • Managing testimonial pages
