The function and purpose of the site. From a simple web presence to formulating innovative strategies to market your product and ideas, we work together to lay the framework of a cost efficient solution…
Working together, the planning process yields wireframe diagrams and a site map that allows Apate to get started on planning how users will interact with the site which supports the next phase of the process…
Painting the canvas with the visuals and narrative to ensure that your site looks gorgeous and functions to perfection. Cross browser compatibility testing to ensure anyone can reach your site from any device…
Training the necessary people on your team to run the website and its content management systems. Social media and search engine optimization strategies that increase the amount of traffic to your site. Security. Maintenance.
Simplicity is in Vogue
A Design Trend
Less Is More
Beauty and it’s advantages. Minimalist design refers to a style of interface design which states that more is achieved by using only elements that are necessary to a given design. Using less to achieve an effect that’s more than the sum of the design’s parts is the goal.
The desire for a tactile-seeming experience made sense in the early days of the digital revolution, when consumers needed visual guidance to understand how to use their new iPhones and other devices. But now, with near-universal gadget penetration, some individuals and companies are turning to minimalism as a design option for their websites and mobile platforms.
Responsive Across Devices
Aimed at providing the optimal viewing experience across the wide range of devices (mobile phones, tablets, monitors).
Intuitive User Interfaces
Modern interfaces that enhance user experience and productivity and takes advantage of the latest web technologies.
Reduced Load Times
In addition to better usability across a wider range of devices than more complex styles, an additional design advantage is reduced page weight.

Built-In Search Engine Optimization
By simply installing a theme based on the Genesis Framework, a website can move upward in Google’s rankings and attract increasingly larger audiences based on official authorship, targeted keywords, meta tags, and page structure.
Nothing slows down a site like bloated code. Genesis clean and lightweight. Web page load times are usually discussed in seconds, but page load times for sites built on Genesis can often be measured and discussed in milliseconds.
There are dozens of elegantly designed and well-conceived Genesis “child” themes which can be used straight out of the box for specialized kinds of sites: news and magazine sites, real estate listings, design and portfolio sites, craft sites, corporate showcases, etc.
Genesis was designed as a highly customizable, user-friendly theming system able to adapt to virtually any unique website need or browser.
Every theme based on the Genesis Framework and delivered to WordPress site owners uses clean, simple, compressed code that validates every single time it’s loaded. That means your site will perform predictably across desktop and mobile platforms, keeping users satisfied by offering a superior browsing and reading experience.
With security expert guidance, Genesis was built to follow all WordPress security best practices.
The Drupal Core
Dynamic and Interactive
Drupal’s taxonomy enables users to create relationships between categories or vocabulary terms without the need for reprogramming the system.
This is a paradigm change from content management to knowledge management, and Drupal was designed from the very start as a tool for knowledge sharing and management.
By tracking what is installed on your web site with one of Drupal’s Update Status modules, you will be informed of the new ways to attack your site – and about measurements that can be taken against them. Update Status modules tell you about security holes in your Drupal modules, and the availability of patches for them
There are also several tools that can be used to measure your security and investigate potential security holes. Vulnerability Assessment Reports can be generated. After that, you can decide what extra security measures should be taken.
Drupal is very well known for its meticulously crafted and well-designed code. The design structure of Drupal empowers Apate to write code that uses the system resources wisely. This means the speed issues and concurrence problems are not likely to come into consideration in everyday work. Even more, patches or updates to a site can be done in a straight-forward manner.
With Drupal, building an impressive website from scratch is simple and straight-forward. It requires less programming than the other CMS’s. More than this, it is easier to add new features and even reshape Drupal website from a simple presentation site to a web application. You do not need to implement everything again from scratch just to change something simple – you just make the change.
