As a website developer, I have seen many older sites that are essentially nothing more than an online business card. From a basic functionality standpoint, this isn’t recommended – especially with the tremendous growth of expectations from Internet users.
Web designs should be both visually and intellectually engaging for consumers. Meaning, content is not only useful, but also easily sharable across various social mediums. Navigation between pages should be simple and a page devoted to photos, news and entertainment in your line of work showcasing your expertise is an excellent idea.
Just as important to a successful website design is staying true to the brand’s image. A website’s layout and content should be harmonious with all aspects of your business – such as print, television and billboard advertisements – to strengthen brand identity and customer loyalty!
Finally, in a world ever growing in number of tablets and SmartPhones, mobile optimization of websites is becoming a necessity. All TAG’s web projects are designed right out of the gate with mobile compatibility, keeping you relevant to your target audiences.

What’s cool: Mystique’s built in Paralax – a fancy term for elements on the page appearing and moving at different rates – gives it a very modern presence. It also allows for more information to be placed on the home page, increasing SEO.
What’s cool: The slider on the homepage allows the Internet user to glide to any of their numbered sandwiches and have The Hungry Hobo himself pop up to describe the ingredients.
What’s cool: The product photo gallery allows the Internet user to search for items down to very specific terms – from the product time, gender and age the product is designed for, size, manufacturer, price range and the quantity of it you want – making shopping online for your favorite athletic gear easier than ever.
