Meeting a client’s goals and needs is our number one priority. No matter the size of your project, we deliver projects on time and within budget.


Our ProcessBig Heart Creative employs a user-centered approach (or human-centered) for all projects. User-centered is a philosophy and a process in which the needs, wants and limitations of the user are given extensive attention at each stage of the development process. We blend your organization’s goals, brand and business needs with those of your customers to create a website that is highly effective.


We gather the needs of your organization and users to establish a foundation for your website.


Together we identify premier applications to support your project.


The architecture and design principles of your new website are outlined.


Our goal is to help you to identify your message and visually tell your story. We will create a website design that will meet your organizational goals and motivate your stakeholders to take action.


After the visual design phase of the project is complete, Big Heart Creative staff will set up a development (staging) site. We will then create the necessary CSS/XHTML and implement the site design on WordPress.
