I plan, design and layout your web pages to engage your users. Your design will combine text with stunning pictures, graphics and/or video clips. We design every project around your content and company message to provide a visual story for your brand.
Responsive Web Design
Some of the adjustments you can expect on mobile devices, design wise, will be a smaller navigation icon that expands to present the full menu — also elements of your site like text, images, galleries etc., will stack to allow clear viewing regardless of how devices are held. These elements may also adjust in size to help things fit and align for optimal viewing. It’s amazing how seamless your website will adapt to the screen.
I prefer Responsive design because it’s the best way to make your website work on any and all devices. If you need to know more I’m happy to answer any questions — also ‘Tungsten’ does a really good job explaining ‘mobile friendly’ & ‘responsive design’.
We will design your site with every need in mind — specifically how it will function. I will help you decide which approach is appropriate for your company’s needs. Is a static, stand alone site sufficient, or do you need a Content Management System (CMS) to allow for dynamic content? Addressing these details from the beginning ensures a seamless transition between design and development. It also ensures we stay on schedule. The less hiccups during the development phase the better — we want that beauty to be bulletproof when people show up to take it for a spin.
The Platform. Once we understand how your website needs to function, we’ll choose the best platform for building it — maybe it’s a standalone site and we go with Adobe Dreamweaver (I love Dreamweaver), or you need a Content Management System (CMS) and we go with WordPress (also loving WordPress) — or Joomla, or Drupal, or SquareSpace…the list goes on. The good news is that though the list is long, with pros and cons for each, we will find the best platform for the job. While I prefer WordPress to design and develop responsive websites, it’s my job to find the best fit for you.
We want to make sure your customers have the best interaction with your company through your website, that its overall impression and ‘look and feel’ — aka the ‘User Experience’ (UX) & ‘User Interface’ (UI) — not only looks good, but works good too… well, works well. Once we dial in the desktop, we check for mobile compatibility. I make sure everything from phones to tablets, iOS to Android, look and function perfectly. Not a pixel out of place! But before we can do any of the above, we need to audit what you’ve got.
Current Website Audit
Beyond that the basic stuff still applies — websites need a revamp every few years. Doing so ensures your website remains current with both technology and search engine algorithms. A quick audit on your current website will tell me everything I need to know.
During the audit phase I’ll review your site’s front and back-end, check for browser compatibility, W3C validation, mobile friendliness or responsiveness, quality of code and structure, depth of content, internal cross-linking as well as all outbound links and media downloads. The next step is to generate a sitemap file that tells me all of the pages that google has indexed so we can review your relevant content and pages and shed any excess (irrelevant content) — so your site will run at an optimal speed. I’ll also check the forms for proper functionality. Does the search button work and return accurate results? There are many steps involved, but I enjoy it. This is the problem solving phase and it’s exciting. From here we discuss the positives and negatives of your current site, and what you want from your future site.
On the surface, it seems like the rules of SEO are ever changing, but the core fundamentals are actually pretty consistent. There are many elements involved and I could write an entire blog on the steps I follow just to make sure your site is set up to succeed when it comes to being found online. Together we will utilize the tools at our disposal and develop a plan of attack on Google (and other search) bots to make sure potential customers can find you.
