The Olivieri Brothers website is actually 2 sites in one. The portal page allows you to choose either the architecture or the real estate site. Each one has a link back to the home page allowing the viewer to select the other site if desired. The architecture site showcases the work they have done.

Website Tips

When designing a site, many factors are considered. The company's logo and/or colors should be incorporated into the site so recognition is there. The key audience is also a very important factor to consider. Obviously navigation is important, however, too many links on a page can overwhelm visitors. If it is necessary to have a lot, we recommend using sub-level menus. Also, the use of white space is something to think about. Too much text can turn away visitors so it's always a good idea to throw in visuals to break the text up.

J&R Computers can offer our clients all these things and more. Best of all you can be sure your site is unique looking and matches your company. Please contact us today for a quote!
