Enjoy Your Agency

We are an award-winning digital marketing agency with a serious ability to generate demand and nurture leads. In a nutshell, we deliver results.

We believe in the power of a shared mindset. Marketing doesn’t have to transform what people believe, but it should galvanize the like-minded into action. It should create connections that will push your business forward. Win-win situations are what we’re designing. Connecting you with your right-fit customers. Your future brand ambassadors. The people who can provide thoughtful feedback that keeps you in step with the marketplace.

It’s driving more than sales, more than transactions; it’s driving deep affinities only relationships can deliver, making growth inevitable.

We are bold and resourceful. Energized and curious. Ready to solve problems and eager to apply new ideas. The shared mindset starts with the agency with which you partner. This is the brave territory where we come together, and it’s harder to get there if you’re not having fun.

Our mission is to be our clients’ greatest asset. Our mantra is, Enjoy Your Agency.

Design for Social Impact

We design brands, business strategy, and digital products. 

We've been in business since 2004, a Certified B Corporation, and Certified women-owned business. We've walked the talk since the very beginning not just in who we work with, but who we are.

We are a team of designers, researchers, and builders who have dedicated our lives to creating change. All of the work we do has to prove a community benefit and meet our own conscious standards. We are all mentors, teachers, explorers, and partners who care deeply about our communities and causes, so we spend a lot of time working with others to help outside of our work here at LimeRed. 

Our staff has always been inclusive and diverse, for 15 years. We are woman-owned and a Certified B Corporation. To us, this is just who we are and it contributes to our different perspective, which hasn’t always been a valued in the marketplace. Now, as people are looking for teams who question standards and build businesses and brands differently, we’re happy to show them a different way.

This isn’t just our job, it’s our life.

From mentoring startups to rebranding an organization to producing augmented reality video, each of our projects is as unique as you are. Instead of using cookie-cutter strategies, we collaborate to co-create human-centered solutions that address your needs and complex challenges.

Everything we do revolves around creating conscious impact. We are deliberate and mindful in our actions and decisions. This is reflected in our company culture and in the projects we take on. 

We hold ourselves accountable to one another, our clients, and ultimately, the world.

Web Design Companies in Chicago

Any modern website's design must be of high quality, otherwise, it will lose visitors. In some cases, it's enough to choose and adapt a decent template. However, if you want to be unique and instantly recognizable, your resource has to be more than just a platform - a comprehensive marketing tool. Thus, consider implementing a custom design.

To know what to expect from your potential partners, when choosing your web design Chicago company, pay attention to the aspects described in this article. Read on to find them out.

Website Design: How It Should Be

To begin with, we should decide on the basic requirements for website design, its types, and features.

Basic Requirements

Below are the most popular basic requirements for a design project as follows:

  • Corporate style. An experienced Chicago web designer, like any other, will certainly study your corporate identity and brand features, find out your requirements for styles, fonts, and colors. The design should be 100% consistent with the overall style of other promotional materials;

  • Page load speed. Nice visuals are not enough - you also have to know how to adapt web design to make the website run fast on any device. Otherwise, your potential customers will leave it in seconds. Apart from losing your leads, this will also result in low positions in SERPs;

  • Adaptability. So many people use their mobile devices to get on a certain website. Therefore, if your website is not mobile-optimized, you will also lose leads, and Google will lower your website's position in the SERP;

  • Usability. Visitors should be comfortable on your website. Colors, fonts, and visual elements should not be annoying, text content should be clear and readable, site navigation should be simple and intuitive.

Design Features for Different Website Types

Depending on the business goals that you plan to reach, you need to decide on the type of design for your website:

  • Image project. The emphasis should be on the promotion of your brand. The design should be vivid, memorable, and creative;

  • Online store. Design solutions for retail sites should be both memorable and unobtrusive. The buyer should recognize the familiar resource already on his/her second visit. The main focus, however, should be on the products/services themselves. A web design company Chicago specializing in online stores will be able to provide an outstanding solution for your website;

  • Corporate portal. Such portals usually come in a very committing corporate style, which is much tighter than that of image projects;

  • Entertainment and news resources. This is where it all depends on your wishes, budget, and imagination. However, complying with the basic requirements is crucial;

  • Tourism, real estate, sales of luxury goods. This is where a truly creative approach is needed, including an unusual arrangement of elements, a lot of graphics, perhaps virtual tours, or other visual elements that will attract the attention of your potential customers.

All in all, your website design can be what you want it to be since there are so many more website types. Still, the final decision should be taken only after discussing the question with marketers, designers, and SEO experts.

Why Order Website Design Chicago

Chicago is one of the largest industrial centers in the United States and home to leaders in many different industries, including a wide selection of IT and marketing agencies.

Both web development specialists, advertising, and promotion companies can provide unique designs. They practice similar solutions, but the range of their services differs.

IT companies prefer to design based on the client's wishes and existing market research, although some are willing to study the market on their own. Such a web design company Chicago will offer a quality website design solution, website/app development or optimization, content filling, and adapting to search engines.

Marketing agencies are mostly focused on doing market research, branding, and developing a promotion strategy. If your existing website is outdated or ineffective in terms of marketing, marketing agency experts will update it for you.

Whichever option you choose, the best firms in Chicago work strictly in accordance with the law, conclude contracts, and follow the deadlines and requirements.

In addition, working in Chicago attracts the best designers and developers from all over the world. Therefore, when it comes to the implementation of commitments, you can be 100% certain.

Website Design Chicago: How Much Does It Cost?

When it comes to pricing, any Chicago web design agency follows an individual approach. The cost of the project will usually be based on the following factors:

  • Overall project complexity;

  • Amount of work;

  • Additional services;

  • The necessity to buy stock images, templates, software solutions (if any);

  • Hourly rates of specialists in the team.

Business goals and objectives can be very different, but you have to be clear on what you want to get in the end, otherwise, even the best Chicago web designer won't be able to help you.

Project Budget

After setting your goals, you want to explore your options. Think about how much money you are really willing to invest in website design, development, and optimization.

Certainly, everyone wants to get the best, but when it comes to business, everything is subject to expediency. If you clearly understand that you need an exclusive website design that will definitely pay off, consider investing in such a solution. If not, you can also explore modest solutions since affordable design can still be stylish, comfortable, and memorable.

Portfolio

Any web design company Chicago has its own website where you will certainly find a section of portfolios with successful case studies. And answering the following questions will help you understand if those solutions really fit your needs:

  • Do the design solutions meet your taste, expectations, and business requirements?

  • Does the list include solutions that perfectly match your website style?

  • Do all the websites load quickly on various devices?

  • Does the company work with adaptive designs for mobile devices?

Remember, that your chosen studio may only be interested in projects for PC or laptop users, whereas some others will offer solutions for a wider range of devices. Should you have any doubts, ask a company consultant for examples.

Customer Reviews

You can choose to study only those companies included in the top ratings, which is quite convenient since it will save you time. However, even in this case, you want to read customer reviews on independent review sites. They will help you learn important details about how this or that Chicago web design agency works, what principles are important for the team, what challenges/conflicts can arise in the process of cooperation, and so on.

Evaluate all the pros and cons of the companies and consider other people's experiences.

List of Potential Partners

After a preliminary study of pricing policies, portfolios, and reviews, you will have a list of the most suitable companies. It doesn't have to be a huge list of companies since you don't want to spend too much time analyzing and comparing offers. That said, 5-6 agencies will do. Send them your requests, based on the preliminary data.

Offer Comparison

Every web design company Chicago that is interested in cooperation will answer your request with an offer that should include:

  • Approximate project cost (overall);

  • Tools and software solutions the team plans to use. This usually includes the information on the benefits you can expect and if your website design will be exclusive or based on a template;

  • The approximate time frame for implementation.

Apart from the overall price and timing, you also want to assess all the benefits that come with the offer, as well as additional services that can be included. Some companies will offer services related to design only, others will offer a full range of services on website development or optimization, some agencies can also help with content filling, and so on.

Communication

If you have any questions during the interview, be sure to refine the information with representatives of the web design company. You want to collect as much information as you need to be able to choose the best.

During the process of negotiation, pay attention to the following aspects:

  • Speed of response (to understand how interested the company is in cooperation);

  • Communication tools (e.g. by phone, messengers, email, or face-to-face communication);

  • Working hours. If you can't reach an agreement on working hours that will be convenient for both you and the firm, you might want to look for another contender. This is due to the fact that your participation in the process is highly important at some stages;

  • Matching values. If you see that the Chicago web design agency shares your views and values, your cooperation will be much easier.

How Web Design Companies Chicago Work

After agreeing on the budget, timeline, and basic requirements, company representatives will draw up a contract and PRD (project requirements document), as an appendix to it, including a work schedule.

Once done, the creative process starts. Within a specified time frame, the studio will submit a prototype and, consequently, the finished design.

Pay attention to each of the stages because the result is the fruit of joint efforts, finding the best solutions, and timely communication for discussion.

In some companies, you will work directly with a Chicago web designer, in others, the project manager will communicate with you through email or by phone. Both options are good in their own way so choose according to your taste.
