We take pride in our work. Simple as that. We rely mostly on word of mouth and our name tucked away at the bottom of your web page to get our name out there. The happier you are, the more likely you are to convince your friends to use us. The better your site is, the more likely someone is going to try to find out who designed it.

Basic Principles

Design
When designing your website, we like to keep things simple. Simple to maintain, simple for your customers to navigate, simple for you. Our designers have years of experience creating stunning designs that are still surprisingly simple to use. Have you seen something on another website you like? Let us know, we can do it. Have an idea in your head that you haven't seen before? Let us know, we will work with you to give you exactly what you want.

Compatibility
With all the different browsers out there, it can be very difficult to make a website that works properly on all of them. We test all of our sites on numerous browsers and platforms to ensure that the end user always gets the best result. Also, all of our coding is optimized and graphics are compressed in the most appropriate formats, meaning that your website will load super quick even on slower connections and not eat up all the data on the user's mobile plan.

Mobile
We know that many people will want to check out your website on their phones or tablets. That's why we offer “responsive websites” by default. This type of website actually shifts everything around depending on the size of the screen it is viewed on. It will even change on the fly when you resize your browser window. If you want an example, visit the TestFish website on your computer, your phone, and your tablet to see how it keeps all your content visible and still keeps it easy to view and navigate, no matter what screen it's viewed on.

Customer Satisfaction
At the end of the day, we are only successful if you are happy with the product and services we offer. We go out of our way to ensure that the product you get is the one you want.

FAQ

Q - Why have someone make a website for you when you can make your own for free?
A - Because you're too busy being a CEO/Office Manager/Supervisor/Millionaire-Astronaut-Cowboy-Superhero to spend the hours and hours of time it takes to create a website that doesn't look like a dog's breakfast and that works with all the major browsers. Basically, we offer a “Fire-and-forget” solution...typically requiring less than about an hour of your time total during the entire process (for our base packages).

Q - Why doesn't TestFish have a super flashy website?
A - There are a few reasons for this...

  1. We wanted a simple, intuitive layout that can give the viewer information very quickly
  2. We wanted to show that you can have a sharp looking website while keeping it simple
  3. We wanted our website to load extremely fast (typically less than 1 second per page)
  4. We have a portfolio to show what we can do, we don't need to cram every thing we can do into one site
  5. We wanted a reason to make this list

Q - Why should I use TestFish instead of someone else?
A - We offer custom scripting, graphics design, 1-on-1 consulting, social media and search engine optimization, very competitive rates, and we will make all your dreams come true!*
* Note: We will not make all your dreams come true, unless you have only one dream, and that dream is to have an awesome website.

What's with the name?
Our founder and Supreme Leader used the words "test" and "fish" when debugging his code. Test...makes sense. Fish...only he knows why.

Development

We use HTML5, CSS3, jQuery, PHP, Bootstrap, WordPress, Joomla! and many other tools, languages, and frameworks. They help us keep our development time to a minimum, saving you money and getting your standards-compliant site up and running quickly!

Our design team follows the web standards set out by W3C, IETF, and ISO. What does this mean for you? Your website is designed to work well on every major browser.
