Your website should be representative of your brand, and you don’t want it to deter potential customers with insecure links and unoptimized content, at least let us help!

Key Elements in Design

The web design process consists of various elements and has many different functionalities, the trends are ever-changing but here are a few current things Web Designers look to prioritise:

Device Friendly layouts (Responsive) – Nowadays there are countless devices of all different sizes and its important your website looks great on all of them.

Clean Typography – Using attractive text that is easy to read can increase a user’s chance of actually staying on your website.

Speed Optimisation – According to Google, as a pages load time goes from 1-10 seconds the likelihood of a mobile site visitor bouncing increases 123%, so having all the lovely images and functionality is good but without proper optimisation people won’t wait around to see it.

Open/White Space – White space, or negative space, lets your design be a bit less intense for the user but it’s important to be sparing as too much white space can be unengaging.

Cost

Programs, Hosting and Maintenance costs can really add up to a substantial amount. Most web design services will include a reasonable price, not only for initial design and development, but for upkeep and support after going live.
