Pixel Alchemy is a full service agency, and can provide you with a complete line of services.
web design and development
We design and develop websites. It's what we're good at.
Way back in 1995, we began building effective and creative sites. We've built sites for a variety of customers from bloggers to medium-sized businesses.
Take a look at some of the sites we've done, you'll find that we generally design clean, uncluttered sites which allow our clients to showcase their services, not ours. Some of these are simple sites with only 3 pages; some are large complex sites full of database driven content.
"If you build it they will come."
That's only true in the movies, and back when we began designing websites. These days you need to make sure the information on your site is organized so it's easy to find, structured to increase usability, and labeled to increase findability.
If your site has poor usability and the content can't be found, your audience will go somewhere else, and no amount of SEO will prevent that.
Content Management Systems
A content management system will allow you to maintain and update the content on your site without calling or relying on us.
We've worked with a lot of content management systems, but feel WordPress and Joomla to be the best. Most of the websites we build today utilize either Joomla or WordPress, but we can work within your existing CMS or custom develop a CMS to fit your needs.
It saves you time and money to maintain things yourself. Whether it's a blog, photo gallery, inventory database, or the whole site, we can provide you with a CMS to fit your needs, train you to use it, and provide support down the road.
We also design custom Joomla and WordPress templates.
Mobile is growing fast. You can no longer assume that your audience will be visiting your site on a computer, or even have a computer. (About 25% of web users in the US are mobile only.)
iPhones, iPads, and Android devices have special needs, limitations, and capabilities, and we can help you communicate with them. It may be a custom version of your site or a custom app. We have the experience to build it.
Logo and Graphic Design
We've made logos for small non-profits, and designed graphics for Fortune 500 companies. We can design business cards and whole identity systems.
From Facebook apps to a custom content management system, we can build it. We primarily use PHP and MySQL, two of the most commonly used open source solutions. We use them because they are among the best frameworks out there, and our personal favourites.
If you need to generate complex PDF documents which are a unique as the custom machinery you build or Excel spreadsheets from content in your databases, we can do that for you. We've built simple forms, games, and entire business models for our clients.
Not everyone has the time or desire to manage their own site. We offer maintenance contracts for those who would rather not do it themselves.

Search Engine Optimization
A website is only useful if your audience can find it.
SEO is more than using keywords and submitting your site to the search engines. We can't guarantee you a number one ranking on Google, and no honest company will promise you that either. SEO is as much art as science; it's a continuing process. We provide baic SEO for every site we develop, and have several advances options which will increase your ranking.
Domain Name Registration
A domain name is your website's address. We can help you pick a suitable name for your site and get it registered. It's one of two things you must have to have a website.
If a name is your address, website hosting is the building. Hosting is the other must to have a website.
We offer hosting at a competitive price. Our servers are located in Montana, with a company we've been doing business with since 2001. It's a world-class datacenter with all the buzz words you want, backup generators and batteries, redundant high-speed internet connections, bandwidth overhead, and a state-of-the-art fire suppression system.
