A city that has been voted one of the top 5 places to live in America for four years in a row understands the importance of good user experiences.
And the best way to ensure onsite engagement and conversions is through a user experience (UX) and user interface (UI) that’s human-driven, intuitive and backed by data.
At Big Drop, our web development Austin team doesn’t spend time guessing what might work. To create a strong UX and UI design, we employ a suite of technical and analytical tools to research, build and optimize user experiences.
There are four main components:
Our job as a top web development company in Austin is to make sure customers answer yes to those questions.
A good user interface is more than an appealing visual design. Want to get a yes to the questions above? Then your UI needs to be easy to understand and use.
Before we ever start thinking about design, we map out the information architecture and user flows that make up the skeleton of your site.
The answers to these questions determine your UI. But an optimized UI is about more than usability. It’s also where your company brand and voice meet user research and information architecture. A good UI:
Our in-depth research process and knowledge of psychology behind what makes a good user experience, combined with our superb User Interface design skills make us one of the best companies for high-performing website development in Austin.
You’ll only find the best of the best in Austin.
It’s simple, really. We believe that good web design combines compelling aesthetics, user-driven functionality and cutting-edge technology.
Just want pretty visuals? There are plenty of other Austin companies that can do that for you.
At Big Drop we go beyond the surface. Yes, a good-looking website creates a sense of legitimacy. But to win the hearts and minds of your customers, you need more than that. Our designs are based on a full analysis of what your company is trying to accomplish.
Without putting the user first, design is nothing but a pretty face. And Austinites are tech-savvy enough to recognize a paint job when they see one. That’s the reason the creative direction for the visual design comes last in our 5-step process.
Every single decision we make, including down to the last pixel, is tied to the research we do into the users we’re creating your site for, the experience you want them to have, and the functionality you need the site to offer.
Like everything we do, the web design and development process is collaborative. We welcome your ideas and involvement from start to finish.
You’re the guide that keeps us on track as we work to create a brand and website that creates the emotional connection you want your customers to have. Doesn’t matter if you prefer something minimalist or a futuristic look that wouldn’t feel out of place at SXSW. You’ll work with your creative team to:
More than 50% of all global web traffic comes from mobile phones. Regardless of where your customers are in the world, we’ll make sure your site is responsive. Whether phone, laptop or desktop, your site will automatically resize — without losing content, design or functionality.
Whether your customers are working in an office in Silicon Hills or checking out your site during a Texas Longhorns game, they’ll get the full experience.
Shouldn’t a city like Austin, that has earned so many of its own awards have an award-winning website design agency at its fingertips?
When you’re ready, get in touch with us for the best website design in Austin.
What would Austin be without its Tex-Mex restaurants and music festivals?
Just like any other city, right?
And nobody wants “just like any other.” Not for your city, and certainly not for your website. We’ll work hard to guarantee it’s not.
We start from scratch with every piece of your site. From brand development to User Interface architecture, and even including add-ons like mobile apps and e-commerce.
Just looking for a simple facelift of your web design? Austin has other companies for that.
But if you’re looking for a full, in-depth analysis into who you’re creating your site for and what you want your users to do, and then building a design based on that? That’s what you’ll get when you work with us.
Not every website needs e-commerce and mobile app functionality. But rest assured, if you need it, we can do it.
E-commerce: No matter where your customers reside. Regardless if they’re stay-at-home workers or road warriors, you can give them the benefits of an in-store experience on the go.
But making a killer e-commerce site isn’t as easy as it sounds. You’ll need strong UI and UX, along with clear messaging and strong calls to action. Then add on lightning-fast page loads and mobile responsive design.
As a top-rated web design firm in Austin, Texas, we’ll ensure nothing falls through the cracks. Whether you need to sync up with Magento, WooCommerce, or Shopify, we’ve got the know-how to get it done. We’ll even make sure you’ve got a customer retention plan that includes promotional, abandoned cart, and retargeting marketing tools.
Mobile Apps: Are your users spending a lot of time on their phones?
If so, you might want a mobile app to help you build a connection, create engagement and increase conversions. Not sure what an app can do for you? We’ve got lots of ideas. How about offering loyalty program perks, early-bird discounts, or on-demand services.

Big Drop helped us reimagine our web presence. We collaborated on the best approach to using our website to attract visitors and capture leads. They were a true partner and listened while giving us the full benefit of their experience. We could not be happier with the finished product!Chief Strategy Officer JConnelly
I have been working with Big Drop for about a year now, their redesign for our website was beautiful and interactive. Their project managers for both design and development were very easy to work with and had amazing response time for changes that needed to be made. I would highly recommend!Digital Project Manager Moroccanoil
Undertaking the design and development of a new website is always a challenge, but Big Drop knows the process inside and out and steers their clients artfully. They were knowledgeable and made great recommendations based on users' habits and industry trends.Marketing Manager Miller Kaplan
Austin is one of the fastest growing tech hubs in the United States. With companies like Google, Facebook, PayPal and Intel pitching their tents in Silicon Hills, there’s little reason for an Austin-based company to look beyond its borders for a simple website design.
But Big Drop doesn’t do simple website design. We’re a multi-channel digital marketing agency with an expertise in website development and visual design that’s earned us more than 30 awards.
Our experience competing head-to-head with some of the largest agencies in New York City gives us an edge that’s allowed us to pick up nationally known clients like AMC, Citi, Dataiku, Samsung Next and Eloan.
Now, with a location (and our vice president of development) in Austin, we’re bringing our award-winning web design to your doorstep.
That depends on the scope of your project but most of the time you won’t find the fastest website design in Austin at Big Drop.
That’s because we don’t believe in rushing the process. Other web developers rely on best practices to speed up their process. We back-up best practices with the research and data that lead to better ROI.
The UX research and discovery process alone can take up to 1 month for larger companies. From start to finish, it generally takes 3 to 6 months to design, develop and build your website. The more complex the site, the longer the build.
Big Drop is a digital marketing agency that understands many industries including technology, healthcare, finance, telecom and media. Our clients include one of the largest healthcare systems in New York State; a leading broadband Internet, phone and cable provider in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut; and Citi, one of the largest banks in the U.S.
We’ve worked with dozens of SaaS companies, along with businesses making waves in machine learning and AI. We’ve helped some of New York City’s largest media companies show off their expertise. And worked with national wellness brands to engage new customers through brand storytelling.
Some of our proudest moments come from helping NGOs make the world a better place. For The Ocean Cleanup, we designed a streamlined website with e-commerce functionality and custom 2D animations to educate and engage donors with the organization’s latest efforts to clean the ocean.
At Big Drop, we know we can create digital experiences that satisfy the needs of your company stakeholders and your users. To do this, we must first determine the objectives of each group. We conduct intensive background research to inform our design and development choices.
We welcome – and encourage – you to participate in the process. We know that you value us for the consultative direction we can give you based on our experiences. And we value you for the in-depth knowledge of your company and your needs that no one else can provide. You know what your brand is and how you want people to feel; we help you get there.
