Walker Sands Digital is a full-service digital marketing agency that helps B2B and technology companies of all sizes bring their websites to life with award-winning responsive design. With mobile devices accounting for a growing portion of all web traffic – one-third as of Q1 2014 – businesses need to ensure that their websites are optimized for all visitors, whether they're viewing on a desktop, smartphone or tablet.

Award-Winning Responsive Design Examples

Incorporating responsive design principles into any website project is a key step in engaging your site visitors and facilitating higher conversion rates. Walker Sands Digital incorporates responsive design into all of the website projects we deliver. Here are a few examples of our award-winning responsive design work:


PlaneTechs is a leading provider of aviation contract personnel, offering staffing solutions for public and private sector aircraft maintenance positions.

PlaneTechs approached Walker Sands to redesign its website in 2006. This engagement facilitated an ongoing relationship that included SEO consulting as well as the implementation of a new CMS. Over the years, Walker Sands kept a close eye on PlaneTechs' site analytics; when mobile traffic to PlaneTechs.com began to ramp up, the Walker Sands team rolled out a plan for optimizing the website through responsive design.

Walker Sands' redesign led to a 300% increase in mobile site traffic to PlaneTechs.com. Early on in the relationship, almost no mobile traffic was driven to PlaneTechs' website; today, mobile accounts for one-third of all site visitors.

In 2012, Walker Sands' PlaneTechs optimization earned an American Staffing Association Staffing VOICE Award for Website Design.


ECI (Electronic Commerce, Inc.) is a global database provider offering customizable payroll management, HR and employee benefits solutions; the firm has been recognized as one of the fastest growing technology companies in the U.S.

ECI enlisted the help of Walker Sands to refresh its outdated website, which was providing a subpar user experience and underperforming in terms of lead generation. The company needed a new digital property that clearly communicated its product benefits, while integrating multimedia content for a richer look and feel.

Walker Sands embarked on a four-month, total site redesign, building a more visually appealing, functional website with responsive design standards incorporated throughout. With new imagery, a reworked navigation and an easier to use CMS, ECI saw a 40 percent increase in traffic post-website launch and dramatically reduced their time to market for posting new content.

In 2013, Walker Sands' ECI redesign earned a Hermes Creative Award for B2B Website Design.

Walker Sands Digital

In September 2013, Walker Sands Digital differentiated itself from the public relations arm of the business, Walker Sands Communications, to become its own distinct brand. As a result of this transition, Walker Sands Digital needed to create a new website that showcased its distinct team, services and, in this case, web design capabilities.

Walker Sands' web services team replaced its old site with a brand new, modern interface in order to better feature the team's recent projects, case studies and design portfolio. Understanding the importance of a website that performs across all Internet browsers and device types, Walker Sands Digital ensured that the new website was fully responsive.

Walker Sands Digital's website redesign won a 2014 Hermes Creative Award for Agency Website Design.
