Website Design and Development Portfolio
We believe in creating the first impression that doesn’t fade away from the mind of customers.
At 405 Ads we custom tailor all of our client’s projects to their specific industry depending on various factors to promote the website in an efficient yet growing manner. We discover new opportunities with you in mind, collaborating on different options and results. When it comes to today’s online marketing there is not a one-size-fits-all all strategy.
Counseling Psychology Website
Custom design project for a recurring client. The scope of the project was to completely redesign the existing content to modernize the site and make it easier to navigate for users. The website is an informational site for student-prospects for educational facilities, the site focuses on Counseling and Psychology programs. Comparing and detailing the two paths informed our design layout and features we created for the site. From the home page on to inner pages the entire design compares the two paths equally and provides a cohesive visual identity in an environment of two paths.
How We Built the CounselingPsychology.org Website
Our in-house design team at 405 Ads recently took on the challenge of delivering a full website redesign for our client CounselingPsychology.org. Our design team was tasked with creating a modern and functional design that the client would use to program a new and improved WordPress website that would be both engaging to visitors as well as optimized for search engine visibility. We used our expertise in design to create a sleek new look that reflected the values of CounselingPsychology.org while also providing an intuitive user experience on any device or browser. We delivered functional prototypes of the mobile and desktop page designs with developer spec sheets for our client’s development team.
Our client wanted to trim old content and streamline the user experience to deliver the best information in a timely manner to users. Part of our mandate was to discover new formats and information groupings that repurposed old content and paired down where it made the most sense. Overall, design was an integral part of the website design process and our design team worked diligently to make sure that CounselingPsychology.org was proud of their new site design.
Working with content heavy websites requires a different thought process. You need to be able to create design templates and sections that allow mass updating and uploading of content to be easy. Creating sub-page design templates that easily allow for auto-uploading content from large databases. Form and function are pivotal to the design working well for the client and meeting their needs.
We worked closely with the client throughout the course of this project to fine-tune the design to exact specifications and build original content interfaces that work with the processes that their editorial and content publishing departments follow. Content publishing processes directed a large degree of our decisions in the design stage because we were building templates that would seamlessly integrate to the content teams practices. This helped the team get on board with the new design and see the benefits derived from the design overhaul, this feeling of ownership in the new design helped us create designs that will work the best for the company and users because we got feedback from every level to make new features and sections tailor-made to the site based on how they are used and how people interact with the site.
Design great for search engine optimization (SEO). Content heavy websites are created over long periods of time with search engines in mind. Organic traffic being a vital source of users for this website we had to build a design that would not only allow for content databases transfer to the new design but actually enhance the value of the existing content by reorganizing and adding or subtracting in pivotal sections to create a wonderful user experience and enhanced speed. We focused a lot of energy on organization of content in the design so that each page and section will stand out to search engines as a highly valuable destination for searchers. Our redesign for the site effectively future-proofs the website for our client for years to come.
In the deliverables we also provided a full developer spec sheet that was overlaid on the prototypes so that the developer could follow the design and specs at the same time without switching references. This helps save our client time on programming the new site and helps ensure that the live website comes out exactly as the design shows. Generally our office handles both the design and development for new or redesign sites, but this client contacted us for design services and has worked with us on more than one website design project after our initial collaboration.
Our design team did an excellent job in creating a design that exceeded our clients’ expectations and we are proud to have been part of the project. We look forward to helping more clients achieve their design goals.

Design a website that Draws Attention and Directs Users to Critical Information and Actions on the Site
It is critical to design an effective website that will draw users to the important information and actions your site necessitates. To achieve this, your website should be based upon a strong theme throughout the site, with a strong color palette tying it all together. Your Call to Action should remain prominent on the page and entice the user to take action; however, it shouldn’t be distracting or intrusive. Thoughtful navigation tools should also lead the user around your site, effortlessly directing them toward what you want them to do and see. Remember: design plays an integral part in attracting users and guiding them through their online journey for maximum success.
A design that features clear and concise information about registered nursing programs and requirements to help users make life-changing decisions
Making the decision to pursue a nursing career should be based on clear and concise information, so you can make the best choices for your future. Having an easy-to-navigate design that features clear and concise information about what is available in registered nursing programs and requirements will help users better understand the options available and equip them with the invaluable knowledge to make life-changing decisions. With this in mind our client tasked us with designing a site that did just that, delivered the right information at the right time in the right way. Designing a site that adds value quickly and drives users to a result that is beneficial for both the organization and user.
Incorporate images throughout the site to add visual interest and appeal
Adding an image to a website can really help to liven it up – they draw attention, break up the page and make content more interesting and appealing. Images should be strategically chosen in order to ensure maximum impact and to reflect the message of the site – visuals should be relevant and support the text. Keep in mind that images should also be optimized for website performance so as not to sacrifice loading time for good looks. Finally, remember that pictures can do more than just look pretty! They can be used effectively as clickable elements, helping visitors get where they need with minimum effort. And with this redesign project, our design team did a complete overhaul of the image assets. We built custom images for every main page banner and multiple custom images for the home page. We also developed design prototypes for highly repeatable pages for content heavy sub-pages that featured easy to construct sections for text and image content, effectively ensuring that the large database of content gets uploaded to pages that have unique attributes.
Design mobile responsive design mockup prototypes and desktop prototypes
Developing mockup prototypes for mobile and desktop is an essential part of the design process. Mobile-responsive designs require additional considerations such as layout, navigation and touch interactions. A conscious effort should be made for this when creating the prototype so that it’s more accessible and easier for users to interact with on the desired device resolution. Furthermore, creating prototypes for both mobile and desktop versions of your project in advance can stop any potential pitfalls in development by giving clear expectations from the onset. We started with the desktop design and put together the mobile design layout once the desktop design was approved.
