Web and Application Design

All sophisticated architecture projects need an equally sophisticated web presence.

Promoting commercial projects can be time consuming and the average architect, developer or designer can feel out of their element with the complications of the world wide web.

Our web and interactive team can offer a variety of solutions to attain the visibility you need to properly market or create buzz around your project. We integrate interactive, video, infographics and social media for an attention-grabbing user experience. And the best part is that if we designed your architecture project, we already know more about your goals than anybody else so translating that into an effective website will quick and painless.

Advantages of a single creative agency

One of the key differentiators to our firm is that we specialize in all aspects of the creative arena; from architecture design to project identity and branding. Advertising agencies are expensive and don’t fully understand the architecture and building industry as well as actual architects and engineers.

Consistency

Form follows function - that has been misunderstood. Form and function should be one, joined in a spiritual union.
--Frank Lloyd Wright

We believe that creating consistency across all services we provide is one of the keys to a successful project. For example, if the concept of the structure is 'opulent modern tropical bungalow', then the bridge needed to create a consistent creative strategy would be heavily influenced by the architectural design concept. Rather than having a super clean, minimalistic logo or website, our approach in this example would integrate design elements and materials from the actual structure directly into the media and promotions.

Clarity

One of the biggest mistakes is creating a website that has no call to action or is cluttered with way too much information. It is vital to always answer the who, what, where, when and why (and sometimes how). If we are your turnkey agency, then clarity is very easy for us to accomplish since we are already knee-deep in your overall design approach. We believe clarity is much more important than persuasion because we understand the average user is impatient and typically does not respond well to persuasion, so often our approach is enabling them to make an educated decisions. We achieve this through clarity and concise messaging.

Lower Costs

It’s cheaper by the dozen, right? Volume discounts is a business standard in just about every industry. Why not creative and design? Since our architects and CAD designers share space with our media professionals, it’s really easy and cost-effective to collaborate on projects. Ad agencies and other creative firms will bill clients for working and meeting with other vendors. Purchasing multiple products from Portales, such as interior design, landscape, website development and video production services will save you money in the long run.
