low-fat cats design is a team of two software engineers and researchers in natural language processing located in Dallas-Fort Worth, TX. We offer a full set of web design and development services to small businesses, non-profits and individuals for affordable, low-end prices. Hire us if you want a friendly, enthusiastic team that cares about your project at least as much as you do.
Cristina, who is in charge of appearances, approaches design as the setting to tell a story. She has the most fun when she starts from scratch and has to create a whole layout from an idea, a photo or a shape, but she also enjoys freshening up an old look.
Gabriel takes it from there and turns the layout into a functional website that complies with standards and looks the same in all major browsers (and, for a while, like minced vegetables in IE6).
Both of us then work on the site in parallel to furnish it with content and optimize it into a sleek, slim version of itself, until the site is settled, dried off and ready to be shown. And then we're there to take care of it.
we create a unique look for you
Since we design your website from the details you tell us, the final product uniquely expresses you. Your site will stand out to your visitors as delicately handcrafted, not mass-produced. We don't generate ‘insert your name here’ layouts. Sure, it'd save us loads of work, but you wouldn't be able to tell your site apart from all those others on the conveyor belt.
we create a professional look for you
We believe that a professional website has to have easy and friendly navigation, clean, consistent and readable typography, high quality graphics and images, perfect spelling, punctuation, capitalization and grammar, and pixel-perfect finishing touches. We don't ever say, ‘Eh, no one's going to notice anyway.’ Our design and code looks good even in places you don't normally look.
we are reliable and trustworthy
What you see is what you get with us. We are honest and upfront about our work record and abilities; we don't make up awards and testimonials or take credit for work we didn't do. We also hate spam and do our part to educate ourselves and others in online safety. We don't do shady black hat “search engine optimization” techniques, which only backfire on the website; instead, we prefer to rise our sites' profiles in search engines through their intrinsic value and following Google's guidelines for search optimization.
we are experienced in web design and development
We've been designing and developing mostly pro-bono for over five years now. During this time, we've finished lots of interesting and challenging projects, some of which are shown in our portfolio. We've also become comfortable and experienced working with various graphic design environments, languages, content management systems and databases. We work under both Windows and Linux and we wield a cool SLR digital camera.
