Welcome to Tigote Design

About us - Our design philosophy

Clean, elegant and intuitive navigation that leads to an ultimate result, whether that be a guestbook entry, an e-mail, a form, a purchase or even a phone call.

Like getting lost in a good book picked up at the bookstore. That means high-quality, fast-loading graphics, a subtle hand with the finer touches available through scripting, and a site that degrades nicely with older browser versions.
