Website Design and Development
Ocular Box has designed and continues to manage webistes with hundreds of thousands of members and thousands of daily unique visitors. Our websites have been featured or referenced on VH1, NBC, ESPN and scores of newspapers/magazines.
Because our websites are built on top of our proprietary content management system, we are able to customize our backend to adapt to the demands of any project. The extensive suite of "out-of-the-box" features decreases the development cycle time and offers a tested and stable platform on which you can manage your website.
- Server-side verification of all input variables
- Extensive library of common input types (phone numbers, email addresses, urls, etc.)
- Customizable select drop-down menus
- Relational select drop-down menues
- Dependency drop-down menus
- File handling
- Image handling and manipulation
- List views and Ajax list views
- Ajax sub-form data submission
We have developed a proficiency in the following technologies since we began creating websites in 1995:
- HTML (since 1995)
- CSS (since 2001)
- PHP (since 2003)
- Database interaction with PHP (since 2003) (MySQL, Oracle, Access)
- Adobe Flash (since 1998)
Currently, due to workload, our graphic design resources are dedicated to digital media creation to support the website development team. With the exception of complete corporate branding (which includes website development), we no longer offer business card, brochure, letterhead, advertisement, or other print media layout services.
Hosting and Management
Ocular Box leases and manages our own Quad-Core Red Hat Enterprise Linux Servers. Quarterly virtual server lease agreements for all sites on our hardware include hosting, varying number of user licenses for content management system and varying hours of pre-paid ongoing development and maintenance.
Search Engine Optimization
We no longer offer search engine optimization for sites we didn't develop. Search engine optimization is a process that can only be done properly when ample consideration for all aspects of the project (design, development, market, competition, etc.) can be accounted for through each stage of development and maintenance.

When I signed on with Ocular Box, I had two goals in mind: 1. To update and improve my website so that it was more user friendly, informative, appealing, and attractive 2. To position my website so that it would be more prominent on search engines, resulting in more "hits" and inquiries about my services.
Jason Hargett and Ocular Box have exceeded my expectations in both areas. The newly designed site has a fresh look that reflects both our professionalism and warmth.
With his comprehensive knowledge of web design, Jason has ensured that North Carolina families looking for an adoption homestudy are immediately introduced to my website. Since Ocular Box completed our site, inquiries have tripled, and we anticipate that this will result in a significant increase in our client base.
Working with Ocular Box Studios was hassle free and pleasant. They responded quickly to comments and requests, and were extremely sensitive to the image we wanted to portray. They worked hard to learn about our business, and continue to monitor our website position on major search engines.
I highly recommend Ocular Box Studios to anyone wishing to create or improve their website, and I will continue to use them as our website needs change over the years.
