Technologies that power our products
Here at Imperative Design we believe your products are only as good as the technologies that run them.
That is why we use the most cutting edge of products that get your jobs done as efficiently as possible. What does this mean for your websites? This means that they get better over time instead of looking more and more antiquated. How does that work? This is done on the principle of “progressive enhancement”. That is summed up by saying we push your web browser to the edge, using all of the most prominent features that it can take advantage of, and what it can’t, we build in back up design that it can fall back to. The result is, faster loading, slicker looking, attention grabbing web pages that are current.

- WordPress: Managing your website will never be the same again.
WordPress is a full fledged content management system. What started as a simple tool to do great blogging has emerged as the king of the CMS’s, also known as content management system.
What does that mean? In the pre content management system era if you wanted to change a picture on your website, update some simple text, or do other minor changes, you would have to have called a web development company. In today’s modern CMS driven world, all you have to do is log in to your WordPress site or other CMS and with the click of a few buttons you get things updated.
