Star Mountain, Design For Web is a United Kingdom and United States-based web design studio focusing in responsive WordPress-powered design for startups and small businesses.
Our business model is designed with you in mind. Startups and small businesses often cannot afford to have a full-time web designer and/or web developer on staff. However, the beauty of WordPress is in its user-friendly design. Once we design a site for your company, you have the option of having us provide you and your staff with maintenance training so that your company can update the content of the site post-build, while still having the option of hiring Star Mountain at a discounted hourly rate for further developmental needs of the site.
We understand the need for a website that is captivating, yet user-friendly for your growing business. We are educated in user experience, search engine optimization (SEO) and user testing - using real people to test the functionality of every site that we build.
