How easy it is for a visitor to navigate your website is extremely important. If they can’t find what they’re looking for quickly and easily they’re going to visit another web site. Every web site we create will have the minimum following navigation features:
• Every web page will have a consistent theme giving your visitors visual clues that they’re still visiting your site.
• Every page will clearly state what area of the site your visitors are visiting.
• We will work closely with you to organize your product(s) and or service(s) into appropriate categories to ensure that they are placed in the correct sections of your website.
Web Browser Considerations
The most frustrating aspect of web site design is designing for the various browsers and computer operating systems. A web page may look great and work flawlessly in Firefox but the same page may look and ‘act’ completely different in Internet Explorer. To help guard against these discrepancies we test your site with the following web browsers:
• Google Chrome
• Mozilla Firefox
• Internet Explorer 8.0 and up
Modern Web Design: Best Practices
Our goal is to create web content widely accessible on all modern devices, operating systems and browsers using current web standards.
• Intuitive user interfaces to make sure your content is easily accessible
• Responsive design layouts that support various screen sizes
• Mobile designs specifically for small-screen, touch-friendly devices
• Social media integration to ensure your branding is consistant across all applications
What is responsive design?
A responsive design simply means a website that has been constructed so that all of the content, images and structure of the site remains the same on any device. For example, when a user accesses a site on their desktop, they are getting the full view of the site. But when that same user goes to visit the site from their smartphone or tablet, the site will retract to fit on the smaller screen. In other words, with a responsive website design, you don’t have to have worry about having different websites for various devices or making sure that your site runs properly on a mobile device.
Why Do I Need A Responsive Web Design?
Responsive Design gives fluidity to your website layout. Irrespective of the device used by the visitor to browse your website, a responsive website will fit into the user’s device perfectly. More and more internet users are using multiple devices to surf the internet – right from desktops to tablets to smart phones. In such a scenario, it becomes necessary to deliver a consistent customer experience that works across devices– a task well achieved by responsive design websites. Our unique approach towards responsive design will ensure you have a highly cost-effective alternative for mobile devices.
Responsive websites are built to seamlessly display content on different devices, thereby eliminating the need to re-do the website each time a new device or browser comes up.
As you display consistent content across devices, you do not need to have a separate mobile version for your website; which means content once updated is updated everywhere.
As the site relies on a single, central codebase, tweaks and updates need to be implemented only once to reflect on all devices, thereby saving money, time and effort.
Consistent page URLs ensure search engine optimization, which increases its search engine rankings and visibility.
Mobile Usage is Increasing
Take a step into the outside world and you’ll definitely notice a lot of people on their mobile phones. In fact, it seems that just about everyone is attached at the hip with their smartphone. The use of mobile devices to surf the web is growing at an astronomical pace, but unfortunately much of the web isn’t optimized for those mobile devices. Mobile devices are often constrained by display size and require a different approach to how content is laid out on screen. There is a multitude of different screen sizes across phones, “phablets”, tablets, desktops, game consoles, TVs, even wearables. Screen sizes will always be changing, so it’s important that your site can adapt to any screen size, today or in the future. Responsive web design responds to the needs of the users and the devices they’re using. The layout changes based on the size and capabilities of the device.
Better User Experience
Responsive design gives users a better experience. For example, users don’t have to fool around with zooming and shrinking the text or images on screen. Instead, all of the content automatically adjusts to the screen of the device. This makes it easier and more convenient for users to read and navigate on your site.
Easier to Manage
If you have separate desktop and mobile sites, you’re going to have to run separate SEO campaigns for each. Wouldn’t it just be easier to manage only one SEO campaign and one website? That would make not just your customers happy, but also your team including everyone from developers to content marketing managers. More importantly because you only have one site, responsive design is more cost effective as well.
Google Recommends Responsive Web Design
“Google recommends webmasters follow the industry best practice of using responsive web design, namely serving the same HTML for all devices and using only CSS media queries to decide the rendering on each device”
