Technology / Security Focused Audit

Alternatively, we can conduct a Technology / Security audit that examines your organization’s IT set up including Domain Registration, Web Hosting, Email Configuration, Digital Asset / Data Security, Redundancy (Back Ups), and overall digital strategy to ensure systems are streamlined, efficient, and secure. Ultimately, we tailor the audit based on your needs and create custom solutions.

What you will receive:

  • Better understanding of your website / campaign goals and how design helps achieve them.
  • Quick turn around so you can take action immediately.
  • Targeted recommendations on items to showcase more prominently, improve, or fix.
  • Summary report with action items.

This focused, step-back from the organization helps achieve a more objective view of a site’s strengths and areas needing improvement. Frequently, we know what we need, we just need help to put in on paper.

Perfect for…

Campaigns, websites, and applications aren’t static. They change over time. Unfortunately the design or forward face of a campaign or organization don’t always reflect the great ideas, progress, or growth going on under the surface. Re-branding or renewed focus on specific areas of your business frequently require a change in design or voice. Design audits present a great opportunity to ensure your brand aligns with your goals this year and in five years. Design audits are perfect for:

  • Emerging brands
  • Sites needing better conversion
  • Organizations experiencing growth
  • Campaigns requiring clearer brand-voice
  • Niching down
  • Re-Branding
  • Stream lining focus or services
  • Stale sites or campaigns
  • Post re-structuring
