What is the most important thing to consider when creating an easy-to-use website ? It is not "all important things should not be more than two clicks away" or "speak the language of the users" or even "be consistent".
Instead, the correct answer is: "Don't make me think."
A quotation from Steve Krug.
A good concept is the foundation for a successful project. More than just a schedule, it helps to define furthermore also develop new expectations and wishes. "You need to know the destination earlier than the train", Jean Paul once said - and this is just what we at Avonis believe as well.
An early conceptional prototype is often imperative for the workflow, whether by "Justinmind", "HotGloo", or also "by hand". At more complex applications we create besides static also dynamic wireframes, in which different page types connected with each other interactively. An abstracted basic structure of the page rounds off this strategic approach and lets all who are involved recognize already very early how the result will look like.
A corporate web site is always the digital business card of an enterprise. Whether a blog, Twitter, Facebook, Flickr or Friendfeed - all strategic activities in the web refer to the original web site. So it must be a real hit, and Avonis will create it for you.
A good visualization - which also shows our technical know-how - is decisive for the representation of complex facts. We always consider our layouts as an interplay between design, usability and technological aspects, like e.g. the consideration of special user-interface navigation of notebooks to mobile touch screen devices.
Content ads, Skyscraper or Landingpage, display ads, fullsize banners and triple banners. Interactive, performance-optimized into flash or static. We know all of them and produce them from planning up to delivery.

The extensive content management and community system Drupal can hardly be surpassed in regards of flexibility and functionality. No other open source CMS has such a large and active community of developers which has produced innumerable high-quality extensions. The heart of Drupal's development beats in the USA with a high frequency. So it does not occur just by chance that its environment shows a dynamic "hands on" mentality. This leads to a rapidly growing new developments and to a nearly inexhaustible number of available modules. Meanwhile, Drupal offers an intelligent and serviceable solution for almost every purpose and every problem. The system will probably not win the beauty prize of software engineering. Other factors like flexibility, stability, time to-market or modularity positively outweigh this, so we can always recommend Drupal increasingly often to add even more value to advanced solutions. Avonis has already completed a wide range of projects successfully. We can also be your partner for Drupal.
