Great websites are made before a line of code is ever written. By developing strategies in collaboration with our clients, powered by insights about users, we lay the groundwork for transformative possibilities.
This talk will focus on such strategies, and identify how applying them can:

At Eastern Standard, we’ve spent several years refining our approach to the design and implementation of content-rich websites, transitioning away from “templates” and toward modular components that can be combined, re-used, and updated as needs change.
