What is the importance of good design?
With an industry saturated with students, Dreamweaver users, graphic designers and self taught individuals it can be hard to distinguish professional development groups from the rest. Good layout and aesthetics is usually handled by the graphic designers but good design on the web means so much more.
Search Engine FriendlyMaking sure your website works for you and gains maximum exposure is essential for any online business. Many amateur web designers
do not have the skill set for advanced layout management using Cascading Stylesheets (CSS). Thus their HTML code is cluttered with redundancies and laid out using tables
which makes it very difficult for search engines to interpret. We use Strict XHTML and CSS for all formatting to ensure your website is
completely search engine friendly.
Table-less Design, Liquid Layouts and CSSIt is well known in the web development industry that tables should never be used for layout. It makes it difficult to
change layout in the future and hard for search engines to interpret. Tables should only be used for tabular information like financial information and cost summaries.
Liquid layouts implemented using CSS allow your website to effectively handle dynamic content and provide enhanced ability for your development team to make quick, easy
changes to the layout which would otherwise be extremely difficult with a fixed or table based layout. Poor design can often be indicated by fixed dimension layouts that
when content exceeds a certain capacity, it will overflow outside the layout. We strictly use the flow, liquid layouts with all our design as well as the latest techniques
to ensure your website has full extensibility and will cost you less when changes are required.
Good Branding & Color UseA well designed website will make strong, effective use of your branding. The use of colors should work to inspire and invoke emotion
consistent with the branding, industry and demographic of your customers. It is very common for customers to place a low priority, interest in the design process. We always
remind them your competitors are only a single-click away and your online customers will often associate poor design with a poor company. Research suggests that websites
with poor design & content as well as lack of effective branding have lower rates of repeat customers.
Browser CompatibilityIt is quintessential that your website can viewed in any browser on any platform (including PC and MAC). Poor designers will create a
website that can be viewed perfectly in the browser they were developing for, say IE7, but once opened in the standards based browsers like Firefox, Safari and the new
Google Chrome, they disintegrate into pieces - a very poor refection on the company. We provide standards based design that is thoroughly tested in all browsers to ensure
you gain maximum exposure and return on your investment.
Get In Touch | Request A QuoteYour website design should work hard to generate leads. It is ultimately what you made your investment for. So it is very important
to provide immediate facilities for customers to get in touch with you directly by email using the website. We provide email forms with all our websites and have the email
sent out with full branding including company logo, contact details and most importantly the customers message.
Google Analytics & MarketingA well designed website will provide statistics for the client to allow them to see how their investment is working for them.
We use Google Analytics http://www.google.com/analytics to provide our customers with a variety of metrics including number of
visitors, geographic locations of visitors, pages visited and much more. We also ensure a monthly summary report is sent directly to the website administrator.
If your still reading, wow, what a handful! As you can see true, high quality design is much more than just making a website look pretty. Good design must work to maximise your exposure and online marketing as well as help to increase customer leads and ultimately profits.
