Your site will be in good hands

Aaron Proctor is the principal web designer/developer at FWD:labs.
Below are some quotes from clients and collaborators about his work.

Exquisite Design Sensibility and Technical Mind

Susan Landesmann
"Aaron is my web guru. I have yet to meet another person who has exquisite design sensibility coupled with a technical mind that can solve every web programming problem. He thinks outside the box and is driven by concept and not just decoration. I think Aaron would be an asset to any undertaking."
Susan Landesmann, Designer

Anybody Looking to make a Difference with Their Communications

Jack Feuer
"Aaron is a dynamic 21st Century creative with experience in all forms of digital media, including web design and video. He is innovative, imaginative and eager for collaboration. I worked with him closely to redesign the UCLA web site and on many other projects, and he was always eager to burst out of the box and try something new. But he also knows his digital media blocking and tackling. I recommend this talented young creative to anybody looking to make a difference with their communications, their storytelling or their impact in digital media."
Jack Feuer, Editorial Director

Get Things Done
and Done Right

Scott Gruber
"Aaron has an ability to combine the best of design, technology and production with great communication skills. It's always a pleasure to work with him on projects -- large and small -- and we continue to work together. I'd recommend him highly to any team that wants to get things done and done right."
Scott Gruber, Design/Dev/Content Strategy

Our Process

Our workflow for every job hits the mark, on time and on budget

We start with a conversation

We start with a conversation

We discuss big picture strategy and small detail aesthetics to learn about your brand and what makes it unique. We listen, collaborate, and share ideas that work for your goals and needs. Each idea is tailored to you — there is no template nor one-size-fits-all package.

We deliver Phase 1: Creative Direction

We deliver Phase 1: Creative Direction

We provide lo-fi sketches and high-concept ideas about how you and your brand can disrupt the status quo. We look at competitors and industry trends. We focus a strategy that scales to meet all of your creative, user, and business needs.

We start Phase 2: Beta Site, involving front-end design

We start Phase 2: Beta Site, involving front-end design

We agree on the scope of the work and come up with a structure that provides a positive user experience, encourages goal-oriented analytics, and runs long-term sustainably. We hit the ground running with a single look and feel based on the initial creative direction.

...and back-end development

...and back-end development

We continue with the skeleton for the project, wireframing out what goes where. We share a working proof-of-concept securely online so we are all on the same page with what is being built and how it is seen on various devices.

We deliver Phase 3: Final Site

We deliver Phase 3: Final Site

We finalize the surface of the work, embracing all the little details. Images and videos are optimized. Copywriting is proof-read. Compatibility is verified. In the end, we deliver a speed- and search-optimized final product, ready for you to launch and share with your audience.

We high-five and keep going

We high-five and keep going

We look at analytics, advertising, and marketing to be your long-term team to iterate and evolve the website. We often supervise the hosting, jump in to make updates when you or your team are too busy, and are on call when you need us.
