PHP / ASP / .NET / JAVA / Python Development
One of the most common types of dynamic web pages are the database driven type. This means that you have a web page that grabs information from a database and inserts that information into the web page each time it is loaded. If the information stored in the database changes, the web page connected to the database will also change accordingly. Database driven websites can be built using several competing technologies, each with it’s own advantages. Some of those technologies/tools include PHP, ASP.NET, JAVA, and Python, the most popular technologies/scripting languages being used worldwide. This is incorporated into the standard HTML / CSS development mentioned above. CMI Web Studio are experts at developing database driven websites. Please contact our staff for a quoted price for your project.
SQL Server / MySQL / PostgreSQL / Oracle Database Development
Microsoft SQL Server is a relational database management system (RDBMS) produced by Microsoft. Its primary query language is Transact-SQL, an implementation of the ANSI/ISO standard Structured Query Language (SQL) used by both Microsoft and Sybase. MySQL is a relational database management system (RDBMS) which has more than 11 million installations. The program runs as a server providing multi-user access to a number of databases. Both databases have their advantages, which we will discuss with you during your initial iDesign Consultation. CMI Web Studio are experts at developing databases for web applications and dynamic websites using PHP / ASP / ASP.NET / JAVA / Python as mentioned above.

Graphic User Interface and Logo Design
Creating a visually stimulating and interactive website is important in maintaining interest, and increasing the length of visitation. A graphic user interface (GUI) offers graphical icons, navigation, and visual indicators to fully represent the information and actions available to a user. This is vital to a successful website, and to funnel visitors in profitable and information directions throughout the website. Logo design involves the process to associate a certain combination of shapes and colors with a brand, an idea or a concept. The results of the logo design process will have a major influence in the entire identity of your project, brand or company, as the logo is the most important piece and settles the guidelines (colors, shapes, textures, etc) that will be used for all subsequent graphic design work. CMI Web Studio can not only develop a GUI, we are experts at designing graphics for the web. Please contact our staff for a quoted price for your project.

Content Management Systems (CMS)
A custom built content management system (CMS) enables you to control many aspects of your website. Content can be simple text, photos, music, video, documents, clients, or just about anything you can think of. A major advantage of using a CMS is that it requires almost no technical skill or knowledge to manage. This requires database driven web applications and a database, which means more up front costs. However, it also provides you freedom to make changes to your site as you see fit, without having to worry about running back to your web developer every time you need to make a change. These days, it's rare that people aren't looking for some kind of CMS to be integrated into the website. Please contact our staff for a quoted price for your project.

Some of these resources are free, some of them are paid. We can help assist you with your online marketing to ensure maximum exposure, and most importantly qualified visitors are being funneled to your website.
Search engines are an extremely important factor in driving visitors to your site. The great thing is, search engines are free resources. The only catch is, you have to know how to beat out your competition to get the results you're looking for. It's important to hire the right company for the job, otherwise it's wasted money and poor ranking results. Fact is, most people that use search engines don't look past the first page or two during any search. That's why you need the expert advice and know how of CMI Web Studio.
