Web design - enhancing your brand image online
We are a bit different to most 'web designers'. Our approach is to look at the online tools that will work best for your business. A web site, of some sort, is likely to be at the heart of it. There are options!
Whatever the web design project scope, we break it into three initial parts:
- the content and messages - how you position your organisation.
- the brand and design - the application of your corporate image
- the techy bit - the structure behind the scenes. Setting it up to be search engine friendly.
We draw on all areas of our expertise. We've honed this service over the years, but there is always something fresh to consider, more so than ever with Social Media.
We have heard, and picked up the pieces, of too many web projects where the client has innocently approached just one 'web site' expert to deliver their web project.
The processes involved in delivering a web-based project.
In a nutshell:
- content is created by our communication experts. We bash it about in a word processing package for ease of collaboration with the client. The content and division of information is agreed this way.
- the design and branding is created on the mac - mocking up layout options for viewing in pdf format and ease of discussion and amendment. Plus, images are cut and buffed by our graphic designer.
- the techy bit for a new or revised web site is implemented offline in our development area. Web technicians are brilliant if they have a great brief they can comment on - hence the two points above.
- hosting - we can upload your site to your webhost or we can host it for you on our secure servers.
