Web design, web development, mobile & content strategy by Happy Cog
We’ve been designing digital experiences ever since the web existed. And that entire time we’ve stayed ahead of the curve. An inspirational leader in the digital design industry, Jeffrey Zeldman, crowned the “King of Web Standards” by Businessweek and the first inductee to the SXSW Interactive Festival Hall of Fame, founded Happy Cog in 1999. Happy Cog has grown to become an industry-leading, diverse group of problem-solving superstars across three studios, united under the common goal of making the web a better place to think, work and play. At Happy Cog, we openly share knowledge rather than tuck it away for some secret strategic advantage. An industry that shares information makes a better industry.

Erskine Design Redesign In just two years, Erskine Design grew from two people working at home into a full-fledged agency of eight, working with some major clients. Our website needed to better reflect our achievements, abilities, team strengths, and to get better information from client inquiries to help grow the business. I’ll explore our thought processes and share the decisions we made as our own client. Time to be brave#section1 To begin with, we felt our site lacked visual influence and variation.

You spend countless hours producing a beautiful, pixel-perfect comp only to have it rejected by the client because it isn’t what they were envisioning in their mind’s eye. It’s the dreaded “I’ll know it when I see it” curse. You get sent back to the drawing board, your ego and the budget take a hit, and everyone is frustrated by the process. After this happens a few times you realize that getting the client involved earlier in the process can make a huge difference in the outcome of your design presentations.
