How may we help you?

Welcome

Welcome to Bordelon Design

Our philosophy is "Beyond Innovation". We endeavor to take our work to the next level of compelling and aesthetic design. It is a state of mind that demands more than the conventional.

At Bordelon Design, we provide complete design services suitable for virtually any challenge.

Print

The power of the press!

So much of our world lives in "The Cloud" now. It's tempting to forget the impact of the physical. Consistently, print media demonstrate considerable preference by consumers as a marketing channel.

Great print can yield great results.

Great print is not just about style, look, and feel; it is about finding the best way to express your brands voice in print. Communicating your brand effectively to the people who need to hear it most is vital to the growth of your company. A business card, brochure, or catalog is often the first opportunity you have to speak to that potential next customer. Don't let it be the only opportunity.

Whether you need business cards or a trade show exhibit, we will produce materials that speak to your audience, in your voice, in strong and clear ways. From stationary systems and direct mailers to annual reports and corporate brochures, we develop strategic communication materials that reflect your brand's personality.

Our work can be geared to match your existing branding, or we will work with you to define a new corporate identity.

Web

The internet never sleeps.

The Web is the ultimate customer-empowering environment. Your visitors decide where they want to go and what they want to see. You want your visitors to gain value in their experience and become customers.

We strive to develop highly usable websites that attract and keep customers. This means creating navigational structures that are easy and intuitive. Individual pages and entire websites are designed so users can find what they are after in a fast and logical way. Our programming services allow you to integrate a variety of sophisticated functions; from content management systems, to e-commerce development, to back-end database integration.

In order to succeed in today's world, you must have an internet presence. There are billions of internet users world-wide, and growing fast. As a result, it is increasingly true that if you do not have a website you do not exist. We understand that downtime is very costly. Having your site down means lost clients, lost sales, and lost revenue. We have in-depth understanding of everything involved with making sure your customers get the online experience you expect. Whatever your needs are, from low-cost shared hosting to high-performance complex configurations, we have what it takes to meet and exceed your expectations.

What we offer is confidence. With us you can be certain that your site is up and available. The infrastructure, the network, and your hosted environment are taken care of by our team, products, services and processes. This is managed hosting, so you'll never have to implement, update, troubleshoot, patch, monitor, administer, backup data or worry again about your website.

We deliver fully managed, hosted solutions. That means supporting you and the technologies we provide you 24x7x365.

Social

How do you "LIKE" me now?

Social media is everywhere. Whether it's Facebook, twitter, LinkedIn, pintrest, instagram, etc. chances are you probably spend some time on social media every day. Social media has been increasingly leveraged by business to achieve their branding objectives.

Social media is good as a direct channel between your brand and the customer. This makes it a powerful tool to develop and maintain an audience. This audience represents influence, and an opportunity to broadcast your message that will help you grow and strengthen your brand.

Mobile

There's an App for that!

Mobile has changed how we live our lives. Everything is now available at all times, almost instantly, wherever we are. Businesses are capitalizing on this new technology to create innovative ways to engage with their customers and make inroads into new markets. The possibilities of mobile are dramatic.

Mobile is very good for getting information out quickly, creating more immersive and engaging user experiences (particularly tablets), and for leveraging community and location to make and keep connections between users.

Some businesses look at mobile as a secondary medium. That approach misses the reality that mobile is the fastest growing segment in consumer electronics. When deciding on a mobile solution, it's important to understand your objectives and your audience precisely. Mobile strategies can be achieved by using Web Apps and Native Apps.

Web Apps are websites that have been optimized for mobile screens and are built using html5, css3, and JavaScript technologies. These systems have advantages that include Cross-Platform Compatibility, Faster to Implement and Update, and Lower Upfront Costs.

Native Apps are software that has been built to run on mobile devices. They are built using the technologies specific to the target platform. The advantages to having Native Apps include Performance and, improved metrics and Analytics, Lower infrastructure overhead, and Improved Product Visibility.

Bordelon Design has in depth experience in crafting mobile solutions. We've developed Apps for several platforms and that have been used by 1,000's of people in over 20 countries.

Branding

What you see is what you get!

The American Marketing Association defines a brand as "A name, term, design, symbol, or any other feature that identifies one seller's good or service as distinct from those of other sellers." In a broader sense your brand is anything and everything that is associated with what you're selling. This means that a strong brand is invaluable as competition grows and the marketplace evolves. Your company's brand is a promise to your consumer. It is the foundation of the relationship between you and your customer and forms the guiding principles to your marketing communication and one you do not want to be without.

Whether you are creating an identity for a new company or broadening the scope of an existing one, we create clean, simple, and long-term solutions for any branding campaign. Building a strong brand is simply a matter of communicating the right messages about your company in clear and consistent ways.

Bordelon Design can help you build a brand that's stronger, more valuable and will pay dividends for years to come.

Process

We solve problems.

Design is not simply a moment of inspiration. It's a collaborative process of discovery that takes patience, experience, and communication. We involve our clients every step of the way, incorporating feedback throughout the process until the design is finalized.

Our process is simple. It begins with listening. Through listening we develop a solid understanding of your company, your business, your customers, and your needs. Getting this fundamental picture helps us create innovative solutions that communicate the right messages and express your unique brand identity.

Once we understand your project and the business needs, the design process begins. We create several design concepts from which to choose. We will discuss these design concepts with you, take your feedback, and refine until everything is perfect.

Finally, we move into production. For technical projects (websites, mobile apps, etc.), this can involve building pages and completing any required programming; for print projects we manage everything from pre-production to final delivery.

It's an exciting process with a simple goal, to provide you with the best solution that generates real results for your company.
