Communications and website UX strategy under one roof

Don’t just make a website. Make a website that works in the context of your entire marketing mix.

Communications Strategy

Who are you? What do you do? What makes you different? And, who should be paying attention? We help organizations own justifiable spaces in their competitive landscape and in the minds of their most important audiences, all through industry research, analysis, strategic thinking and stakeholder engagement. Our communications strategy offerings include:

  • Organizational/brand positioning
  • Messaging strategy
  • Competitive analysis
  • SWOT analysis
  • Stakeholder and audience interviews
  • Persona development

Content + UX Strategy

Building a site starts with discovery. We work to understand a website in terms of an organization’s communication objectives, audience needs, comparative experiences, technical requirements, and more. Our UX Strategy exercises arrive at this understanding through:

  • Stakeholder interviews
  • Audience research
  • Content audits
  • Google Analytics insight derivation
  • Competitive analysis
  • Journey mapping
  • Personas and scenario-based user stories
  • Information architecture + site mapping
  • Usability testing

Analytics

Make informed, data-driven decisions about your website. We help our clients see the story in their data by configuring, curating, and maintaining their analytics configurations. Some of our offerings include:

  • Auditing Google Analytics + Tag Manager configurations
  • Data quality improvements
  • Real-time data visualization dashboards
  • Data analysis + recommendations
  • Technical remediation

We provided a content strategy for The Space Foundation that increases traffic and donations.

Uncompromisingly user-centered design

We start with what your audiences want and from there, fold in your business objectives.

Our Process

We take strategic insights from discovery into our design work. These insights then drive the creation of every aspect of a new site, ensuring that we’re paying off business objectives while making something users want. Depending on the project, our design process might include:

  • Moodboarding
  • Collaborative sketching
  • Wireframing
  • Visual and UI design
  • Interaction design
  • Responsive HTML Prototyping

We modernized design and decreased site maintenance time for Greenbiz.com

What We Make

We build sound, sustainable websites that flex as your organization’s needs change. You’ll be able to scale your site and integrate new technologies because we use leading edge tools and open source platforms.

Our Process

We work iteratively and transparently, using an agile project management philosophy. We invite clients to collaborate with us throughout a project; the result is cross-disciplinary magic. Your strong point of view on what success means will shape our project throughout feedback rounds.

Drupal

Members at Kalamuna have been working with Drupal since its early days, and we’ve vastly extended the core project. We also foster the community by sponsoring and organizing conventions, camps, summits, user groups and more.

Easy-to-Use, Open Source Site Theme

Drupal’s presentation layer is defined in a “theme.” While most developers use others’ themes, we created our own: Kalatheme. It makes all our sites ready for mobile and tablet devices, and it empowers our clients with easy-to-use tools. We’re proud to have contributed an open source theme that developers around the world use for free.

See details about Kalabox.

Kalabox: A Simple Workflow for Development

We created an original interface to enable people of all skill levels to use advanced development tools. Kalabox brings together everything developers need to code, test, and go live with ease. Even more, it seamlessly integrates with Pantheon Systems and is slated to work with even more hosting providers.

He is in constant contact with the web strategist and all our support issues are responded to within 4 business hours of submission - including weekends!
