Kobot Edmonton Web, Design, Strategy
Kobot is a dynamic, user-centred web design team dedicated to realizing your full potential on the web. When you need the world to see how passionate you are about what you do, we’re here to make that happen.
We don’t do cookie-cutter websites and we don’t do the same-old, same-old: we take carefully-considered design and couple it with cutting edge web development and content strategy to ensure your message is heard. We want to transfer your values and goals to the web and help you get noticed.
Kobot works with people as invested in themselves and their business as we are in ours. We want to work with innovators, risk takers and creative personalities. We love meeting people who want to do more, who aspire to greatness.
Who We Are
Kobot is a collective of three University of Alberta graduates: a designer, an engineer and a writer drawn together by a shared passion for collaboration, creativity and punk rock. While making products for the digital realm, Kobot employs the values of a previous age: care, craftsmanship and attention to detail.
What We Do
You wouldn’t be satisfied by a product or service that’s “good enough,” and neither are we—we want to make the web work for you in every way possible. To do that we take a holistic approach, developing comprehensive digital strategies that go well beyond “just a website.” From user-centred design to social media strategy, your success is our business.

How We Do it
It’s important to us that you get a website that’s right for you, not a lesser version of someone else’s. We custom build each site we make, integrating your goals, values and strategy.
We do it in three steps:
“A website is more than a colour scheme and fonts”
The most important part of building a website happens before colours are picked or code is written. We look at your identity, existing content, your needs, competitors and marketplace to create the most effective web presence possible, one that reflects your values and communicates them to potential clients.
“Good research begets good design, good design begets success”
Once we’ve assessed the needs of your organization, we get to work. And while we work we keep you up to date on our progress and get feedback to make sure you get a site that helps fulfill your goals. We want to build websites that find solutions to the challenges you have, such as reaching a wider audience or communicating your message.
“You’re always trying to improve, and so are we”
Once the site is built, we work with you to ensure you know how it works and what it can do for you. Not to worry—it’s easy: we use a custom content management system that’s straightforward and intuitive. It’s our business to make your site successful, and we’re as invested in our business as you are in yours.
Our Recent Work
Sailin’ On is a new food truck specializing in vegan comfort food. The website needed to fulfill the business owners’ two main goals: to solidify the brand and to let people know where their highly-mobile food business was at any given time. Kobot fulfilled the first by utilizing the owners’ larger-than-life personalities, injecting their being into the design, writing and presentation. To fulfill the second goal, Kobot tapped into streetfoodapp.com’s website which allowed us to map their location onto a live Google map that was tightly integrated into the site’s visual presentation. Finally, Kobot presented Sailin’ On with a social media plan, tailored to the needs, goals and resources of the business.
Workforce Development Toolkit
Productivity Alberta required a learning tool that would not only inform employers of the necessity of investing in workforce development, but teach it as well. Working with educational content developers, Kobot created a toolkit that presented an easy-to-follow, linear format that walks users through the process without dumping information on them. Graphics and templates further enhance the experience and reinforce the information in the toolkit.
Tzin Wine + Tapas
Tzin had built a reputation for impeccable wine and tapas amongst social media and review websites, and needed a website that would not only extend the brand but to persuade patrons to book online at the busy restaurant. Kobot created visuals that exemplify the mood of the wine bar’s space, innovated with the use of real type instead of rasterized images of typography, and successfully translated to mobile device, which made it useful to the one third of visitors who arrive via mobile.
Kobot builds websites for people as invested in themselves and their business as we are in ours. We want to work with innovators, risk takers and creative personalities. We love meeting people who want to do more, who aspire to greatness.
