Choosing A Website Design Company In Inner West Sydney

When selecting a company to create your new website it is important to choose a web designer that, in our opinion, offers the following:

Local company. Many so called ‘website designers’ are actually simply agents for Indian based web design organisations or individuals. They look to secure business from businesses and individuals requiring a website and then subcontract out the design work to an Indian web company. Our experience is that Indian web designers + local agent results in higher costs for clients and poorer websites and ongoing problems with communication / website changes / website support. Don’t do it is our advice! Local companies (like us!) offer better service and finished product at a lower cost. plus you can pick up the phone and talk to us and get changes to your website made quickly.

The value to clients of this advice cannot be underestimated.
Fully mobile friendly web design. As people use smart phones and tablets more and more it is critical new website designs cater for correct viewing on these devices

Mobile Friendly Web Design

In November 2015 it is estimated that over 65 percent of Australian websites are not correctly viewable on mobile devices such as tablets and smart phones. This means that organisations and businesses are potentially missing out on around 20 to 30 percent of web views as the number of people using these devices to search for products and services increases at an astounding rate.

Responsive Web Site Design

The term ‘responsive web design’ is used to define websites that are designed to be viewed on mobile phones and tablets as well as laptop computers and desktop p.c’s. We ensure all our website designs are fully responsive to ensure the newly created websites will be fully viewable on all such devices. Responsive web design aims to ensure that:

website menu’s work well on tablets and smartphones
display fonts and text and all content on tablets and smartphones
images and content adjust to be viewed on all devices in correct proportions
contact forms work correctly
colour schemes are accurate and reflect the original design concept
there is fully website functionality on all mobile devices

Online Emulators To Test Responsive Design

We make use of some well designed, web based tools to test the responsive design of our websites. It is important to test websites on android devices, iphone devices and tablets. To make this task easier and as accurate as possible we have access to online smartphone and tablet ’emulators’. these allow us to see how the websites will appear on these dvices without having to actually have such a device – very useful. More importantly it ensures the newly crafted websites are working as they are designed to.

Website Design – Sliders – Benefits And Features

Sliders allow web designers to integrate moving images and text into visually stunning ‘slide shows’ on the home page of a web design. Our website is an obvious example of this. We have used a slider image plgin to create a moving picture show which allows allows us to have include text messaging with the images. this makes for an eye catching home page website display so that when visitors view the website they can quickly, via an attractive and interesting header display, get a feel for the web services we offer in an intuitive, visual programme that sets it apart from the blocks of text that used to be the website ‘norm’ just 5 years ago or so.
Website Slider Selection – Critical In Web Design Practice
Wordpress currently has over 100 sliders that are available for web designers to use in creation of new websites. So what are the consideration for selection of the most appropriate slider? As well as the pure aesthetics of the completed image slider we look for these features and benefits of a slider prior to integrating into a new web design project:

It strength in code against hacking vulnerability. One of the potential downsides to some sliders designed to

work with websites is that, whilst they make look great on a website, the coding used to create the slider has not taken into account the best coding practices to avoid hacking and breaches of website security. there have been several well publicised issues with well used sliders over the last few years that have resulted in thousands of hacked websites due to vulnerabilities in the code of the slider plugins. This can be a huge problem for webmasters as some website hacks can […]
