“At the National Foundation to End Senior Hunger, our work is serious business. Therefore, the selection of a web design firm was also serious business to us. The Internet is a crowded place these days and so capturing and keeping the attention of visitors is difficult. But we knew that was what we needed in order to accomplish our mission. That, and creativity, technical know-how and a firm that would take time to learn about us and our goals. No formulas, no off-the-shelf templates, no grey jargon when we had questions and no push back when we asked for changes, were all our requirements of a serious web design firm. We were looking for a firm that respected us for us and for our cause. We found that firm in Gravitate. We found a firm that we, in turn, could respect and admire.”

– Enid Borden, Founder, President and CEO, National Foundation to End Senior Hunger

What is the cost of making your customers wait?

Nobody likes to wait. It’s irritating, and, at a certain point, people realize their time is more valuable than the service or product they’re waiting for, and they leave. Companies know this and invest a great deal of time and resources into queuing theory—a branch of operations research that uses data to determine how long customers are waiting and how to reduce wait times. Queuing theory gives businesses a mathematical model to analyze whether a reduction of waiting time is worth the investment and provides a real sense of how much waiting time is acceptable before a customer goes somewhere else.

Importance of Sketching

What My Mom Taught Me About Web Design

It’s a typical Thursday morning, and I’m in my kitchen sitting down to eat breakfast. Nothing special, just a bagel.  However, what is special about this breakfast, is that I have both time and silence—two things that are extremely delicious and fulfilling in their own ways. I find myself spending this quiet time thinking about an upcoming project. Accompanying my plate and bagel are a pen and sketchbook. I start sketching, thinking, and re-sketching, and I quickly start laying out what will be the foundation of a new project I’m working on will look like. Ideas are flowing, and bagels are disappearing.
