  • You can say anything here really. Main point is that many competitor/similar companies have more sophisticated web precenses (including social media) than invennovations, and to be noticed and trusted the company needs to rise to these standards.
  • From summary: 1) Responsive design 2)As our mock-ups became more detailed, our main focus was to create a web site that presented all of our content as clearly as possible and to keep the usability as intuitive as possible. We placed the search bar at the top of the site for easy access, consolidated the navigation menu, and added slides on the home page that further aided in the navigation of the site.
  • Logo Slider 3)Anything else you wanna focus on
