websites, student marketing, academic project sites, design
We can work within a school's visual identity guidelines and build a departmental site or academic project site that works – meaning visitors can find what they want quickly, potential students and faculty get a strongly positive impression, and the site information is easy to update.
Initial meetings are free. If you like our ideas, we'll write them up in a proposal that outlines the project and cost. That's free too. Contact Paul Smedberg at: 317-334-0177 or 812-720-3011 firstname.lastname@example.org
One other big advantage: We're small. The people you talk to are the people who do the actual work.
Need site maintenance? We can do updates and changes for a fixed monthly price.
The Indiana University Chinese Flagship Center offers a number of programs for learning Chinese. We created the website and print marketing materials as well as the online advertising with Google and Facebook that brought hundreds of qualified potential students to the site.
Now a user-friendly site that invites return visits, the West European Studies program expanded their web presence with a detailed events calendar, video, audio podcasts and an independent RSS feed. All of these features were configured to be updated by non-web-trained department personnel. We created a detailed manual for changing and expanding the site with examples of how to make changes using frequently-changed pages of the site and screenshots of the updating software used at WEST. Completed in 2010.
An open-source content managment system powers this significant, feature-rich website. Changes can be made by administrative and clerical personnel using the web-based administration site. Password-protected sections of the site offer content tailored to students and teachers. The site also features the ability to present Chinese characters throughout the site without using additional specialized software or fonts. Completed in 2010.
Before we made the site we conducted focus groups with current undergraduate and graduate students to get ideas about what students were seeking in a departmental site, and in choosing where to go to school. The site is designed to be easy for faculty and departmental staff to independently update their sections. There's also focused and persuasive information that we created for prospective students. Completed in 2008.
We rebuilt and redesigned the Kinsey home page to provide clear and easy access to the content, making it easy to update in the process. We worked with the communications director and web committee to be sure that the homepage created the right expression of what the Kinsey Institute is all about. Completed in 2008.
This translation of the Book of Revelation by IU's Willis Barnstone was designed to bring the extensive footnoting to within easy sight of the referring text. In this way readers can go quickly back and forth from the text to the footnotes without scrolling. It's a simple idea that makes online reading of annotated documents easier. Completed in 2002.
Yes, we work with paper and ink as well as dots of light. We can take whatever you have to communicate and organize it, make it look good, and get it printed or published. We are quite familiar with modern, efficient printing and publishing methods and we are not fazed by mathematical formula or romanized Sanskrit.
We also do writing, photography, illustration and video.

The sites we make are not slapped-up templates with that "cheap look" some sites have. While we work within your design requirements, we create unique sites, tailored to your department, preferences and goals. Your site can look good, interface with the rest of the University, and stay within budget.
BCS has served central Indiana for over twenty years and we can implement the latest relevant technology on your site including video. We're also thoroughly experienced with building site traffic through search engine optimization and keyword advertising.
BCS is a small, efficient company focused on excellence, service and results. Our compact size means that we have very low overhead and no bureaucracy — you talk to Paul who, with Jeannette, does almost all of the work.
We stick to the budget, and work until you're happy with your site.
