It has been a pleasure to work with Carbon Creative. They built two websites for my two companies. Their knowledge of industry trends, out of the box thinking, and ability to deliver on time and on budget were just a few things that will keep me coming back.

Owner & Founder

Meet Jake Steelman

I'm Jake Steelman, an entrepreneur, creator, and designer from Oklahoma City. I graduated from Heritage Hall in 2019, and am currently attending the University of Central Oklahoma part time and running Carbon Creative full time.

As a self taught web designer and developer, I've always enjoyed bringing new projects to life. Something is alluring to me about translating a vision into computer code, a beautiful website, or mobile app, and then using that to solve problems and achieve goals for a business.

In 2018, I decided to take my passion for designing, developing, and launching digital experiences, and start a new company to help businesses use these digital experiences to solve problems and grow. Thus, Carbon Creative was born.

Since graduating from Heritage Hall in 2019, I've remained active in the community. I built the Heritage Hall Schedule (HHSchedule) app the summer after graduation, along with the official ChargerVision Website. I've also worked with many Heritage Hall patrons, alumni, and associates to help them with their web needs, and I look forward to working with many more!

Website Design Features

Every website we build is...

Visually Stunning

In order to succeed as a business, you must stand out from your competition. If your website looks plain, boring, or it uses the same template that your competitor does, you're really selling yourself short.

Responsive

Over 60% of Google searches come from mobile devices. It's crucial in today's age to have a website that responds to different screen sizes. That's why every website we build is responsive by default.

Lightning Fast

Over 40% of visitors will leave a website if it doesn't load within 3 seconds. When visitors leave your site, they'll go to your competitor's website instead. By having a slow site, you're helping your competition.

SEO Friendly

Your site must comply with changing algorithms and good SEO practice in order to rank higher on Google. We build websites that drive your search engine rankings up, helping you get more traffic.

User-Centric

Other design firms build websites focused on you, the business owner. We step into your customers' shoes when building sites, which allows us to build powerful sites that your customers will love.

Safe & Secure

Online security and safety mean everything to consumers who give out personal & sensitive info. Every site we host has a free SSL certificate, encrypting connections and giving peace of mind.

Our Approach

At Carbon Creative, we aim to complete our websites within 4-6 weeks. Here's the process we follow to ensure that happens quickly and effectively.

01
DiscoveR

Discover

Before we start building your site, we'll meet with you in person, over the phone, or on a Zoom video chat to discuss your goals and learn more about your company.

Strategize

Next, we'll plan out your website, and craft a tactical plan to help you achieve your goals online. We'll map out all of the features for the project, and build a detailed timeline.

02
StrategIZE
03
Wireframe

Wireframe

After that, we'll begin constructing the layout for your website and deciding how it'll flow. We'll send the completed wireframe over for you to view and critique.

Design & Development

Once we've got an approved wireframe, we'll begin adding content, colors, fonts, and images to your website, and finalizing any other touches before sending it off for critique.

05
LAUNCH

Launch & Maintain

Finally, once you've critiqued and approved the final design, we'll test it on a variety of browsers and publish it. After that, we'll constantly tweak and maintain your site to help you climb the search engine rankings.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much do your websites typically cost?

Depending on the size and scope of the project, this can vary greatly. However, we've got four pricing tiers that most projects fall into. You can check those out by going here!

How long does it take to build a website?

On average, we shoot for a 3-6 week turnaround, but the pacing of each project depends on the size and depth of the project. Additionally, the client sets the pacing of the project, so the amount of feedback you can provide and your availability to provide feedback will be the biggest factor in designing the website.

Will I be able to update my site myself when it's finished?

Yes, we encourage you to update your website when it's finished. At the conclusion of each project, we'll provide you with access to Carbon Creative University, which is our onboarding and training platform designed to train you to proficiency with how to use your website. It's got video and text content explaining how to update the content of your website, publish blog posts, add portfolio items, and a variety of other web design tasks. We'll also give you a video training over Zoom or Skype showing specifically how to use your website, and we'll answer any and all questions you may have.

Will you maintain and update my site for me?

For clients with monthly plans: Yes, we will maintain and update your website, up to a certain amount of hours per month. Each tier has a different number of hours per month, and you can view the allotted hours above in the price tiers. Included in these hours is website maintenance/upkeep, and changes requested by you.

The former includes search engine optimization, analytics reports and tracking, updates, browser testing, all of which we do by default, while the latter includes things like design changes and copywriting, which are requested by you. Also included in these hours are any conference or Zoom calls or in-person meetings requested.

Should you request anything that takes longer than is budgeted, which usually does not happen, we will invoice you for $75/hour for each hour that exceeds the original budgeted amount, rounded up to the nearest 15 minutes.

For clients with upfront plans: No, we do not include maintenance hours with your plan, other than ensuring that your website stays up, hosted, and the domain stays connected. We optimize your site for SEO at the start, but do not update or change your site unless specifically requested. If you need us to make changes to your website after it's been launched, we bill these hours at a rate of $100.00 per hour, rounded up to the nearest 15 minutes, and will invoice you after we've finished making modifications.

Will my website be mobile friendly?

Absolutely! As more people are using mobile phones to browse the internet, we believe that it's critical to have a mobile site in order to reflect well on your company. Rest assured that your website will be completely mobile friendly, no questions asked and for no additional price.

What's the payment structure like? How do I pay?

For clients with monthly plans: After we finish building your website, we will invoice you for the first month of services. You have two options: we can automatically charge your credit card (with written permission) every month, or we can automatically invoice you instead. If you pay your first invoice on the 12th, for example, you'll be charged or invoiced (your choice) on the 12th of each month. Once we've received payment for the first month, we'll connect your domain and launch your website, beginning the recurring optimization and maintenance phase of the project.

For clients with upfront plans: We understand that a website is a big investment in your company's online presence, so we offer multiple plans to help you budget for it. Our preferred payment structure is 50% down and 50% on completion, however we offer many different options (like six automated monthly payments) and can customize the structure to fit your needs.

How much input do I have in the process?

You have a lot of input in the process, this is your website and we want to make sure that it comes out exactly the way you envisioned it. Your feedback is crucial to this process. We'll provide our expert opinion where it is needed, but will defer to you because you know your business better, and you have the vision for the website.

Who writes the content for the site?

Usually, you would be responsible for writing the content for the site. You know your business best, so the highest quality website will have content straight from you. Content includes photos, videos, text, blog posts, portfolio items, etc. If you are in need of photos or videos for your business, we offer photography and videography solutions that we can discuss in the proposal process.

How does hosting work?

For monthly clients, hosting is included in the total price you pay. We'll handle all the nitty gritty, and make sure your site stays up and running, and compliant with industry standards. With our hosting, you get amazing benefits that you won't find anywhere else. You get a free SSL certificate, managed by us, a content delivery network (CDN) to ensure lightning fast load time, and state of the art Amazon Web Servers, an industry standard.

For upfront clients, due to the nature of the Webflow CMS we use to build our sites, we'll bill you $25.00 per month to host your website. With this, you get the same amazing benefits as our monthly clients. If you need your site exported, let us know in the proposal process.

What if I need help on my site down the road?

We're just a call or email away! We're here to help you as little or as much as you need.
