Our Services



Research and Discovery

Still in the planning stages? Just getting off the ground? We can help you research your user base and create the perfect site. We start by understanding your target audience in depth, creating personas to drive our design and development. We can then move on to wireframing and user testing, getting on-the-ground feedback from your potential clients.


Development

At Sublime Point Design, we are full stack developers. Any language, any database, any tool. This means we aren't pigeonholed into one framework, but can select the perfect tool for your unique project.

Design

We pride ourselves in elegant, responsive design, meant to make the user's life easy. We'll work with you from beginning to end to ensure your site meets your high standards of excellence. Need graphic design to complement that new website? We can help with that as well, even offering high quality printing through our sister company Two Thousand Pounds of Letterpress.
