inQbation is a digital marketing agency specializing in strategy, design, development, usability, and search engine optimization (SEO) of websites for government agencies, non-profit organizations and small businesses. We believe in rapid results, competent professionalism, technical strength, diverse capabilities, redundant manpower, an eye for design, a focus on usability and accessibility, responsible stewardship of funds entrusted to us, and expertise in SEO, social media, and mobile accessibility. Based in the Washington DC metropolitan area, inQbation specializes in interactive web design. We strive to create engaging, compelling websites that are easy to use, easy to manage, and easy to navigate. Our designs are also friendly – user-friendly, mobile-friendly, and search-friendly. We have found that the skills, mindset, and approach of a print designer is quite a bit different than that of a web designer. In print, for example, the design is often focused more on a two-dimensional surface, the material of that surface, precise colors and font types that are more easily controlled during the print process. In addition, the print designer is focusing on a one-way static message. On the other hand, a web designer focuses on moving parts; namely, the web visitor. The web designer has to think about interactivity, intended response, possible response, and unexpected response. The web designer can’t control colors because every monitor and many computers and operating systems display colors slightly differently. The web designer cannot necessarily control the font because it often depends on the fonts installed on the web visitor’s computer and browser. The mindset of the interactive web designer is quite unique and distinct from that of the traditional print designer. At inQbation, we have designers who specialize exclusively in the web, because your website is not a static flyer, postcard, or business card. It is a dynamic organism that lives and evolves over time and has gears that are manipulated by its visitor. Love Letters from our valued customers! “Blake and Luis, I am updating the website now and adding different taxonomies for the first time and the process is so easy and fun that I had to write and say thank you again. I could not be more pleased with the website and how it turned out and we are 110% happy with how everything is working! When I think back to the old website I shudder thinking about all the steps we used to have to take etc. This website makes my job so much easier and fun to do and you all are the reason for that. I used to dread anything involving the website and now it’s the best part of my day! I know it was a tough process getting here, but I just want you to know it was well worth it and I am so, so pleased with the final result. Blake – we could not have done this without Luis – he managed this project (and Stephanie and I!) superbly and the website is a testament to all of his hard work. Thanks so much,” -Megan K. “I want to lead off this note with a huge Thank You !!! You have gone above and beyond and done whatever it takes to get us here on time. Thank you very much for the long hours and dedicated hard work this year. …This team has proved extraordinarily dedicated to task and produced an extremely high quality very capable product in a relatively short time, under the highly stressful condition of fluctuating customer requirements.” -Tom T. “I also wanted to commend you guys for your SEO work. Our site is now on the first page of Google. So that’s pretty cool.” -Isaac D.

Mission: Save the World, One Website at a Time.
