It appears on every page and visitors will expect it to work flawlessly, or they will leave, They also expect it to “feel” right when pressed, rolled over and clicked. As such, the navigation needs to be clean, fast and easy-to-use. Chroma Sites can be fitted with a number of elegant menu styles, all which can be customized with millions of color choices.

One of the most overlooked aspects of a website are the words themselves. Research shows that the most common reason visitors immediately leave (bounce) a website is because they get frustrated trying to read. We, as experienced designers, will strive to provide the proper emphasis to your words by adjusting the fonts, sizes and colors of headlines, subheads, copy, call outs and links.
