Website Security
Web Design, Websites, Agency

October 2017. All Websites Will Need SSL for “Secure” Label in Chrome.

In October Google will begin to label all HTTP pages as non-secure.

The issue of Internet security is one which is already of utmost importance to anyone involved in hosting, designing or using websites. As the next wave of web interaction unfurls, with developments such as the Internet of Things, and the wider economy moves inexorably toward being completely cashless, the question of security is likely to become ever more central. It is this direction of travel which Google is reflecting in its treatment of HTTP sites.

Since launching Chrome, Google has been attempting to persuade more and more sites to shift to the security of HTTPS, and its latest version, launching in October, is going to take this process one step further. When that happens, it will display’Not secure’ in red, which is at the moment only used for broken HTTPS.

How To Create a Successful Website : The Definite Step-By-Step Guide

Before you sit down to start creating your new website, ask yourself very clearly exactly what it’s intended to achieve. Some sites are built with e-commerce in mind, others as an extension of a wider branding effort or as a call to action for people to contact you. The intention of the website has to play a part in every decision you make about its design. If you have a clear vision from the outset, you’ll be building on the firmest possible foundations… Your website has to be designed and built in such a manner that any visitors, once they clicked through to the site, will want to stay around and explore. Here are some of  the techniques you can use to ensure that your new website is a success.

OMdeSIGN agency designs and develops an innovative online platform for art lovers across the world

Exhi turned to London based web design agency OMdeSIGN to develop and launch an innovative online art-lovers platform

exhi-ipad

Exhi is a bold and innovative concept, created to offer a unique interactive portal to some of the world’s leading galleries, museums and exhibitions. The distinctive aspect of Exhi is that, with a few small exceptions, the reviews contained within the site will be written and uploaded by the users themselves. The aim of the site is to create a vibrant, accessible online community, created by and for art lovers and offering the chance for users to discover art recommended by people like them. Above all else the site needed to be accessible, fully responsive and visually appealing, showcasing the art in question and making it simple for users to interact across a variety of platforms and via all devices.

When creating a site centred upon the world of galleries, museums and art works, we realised that everything had to be built outward based upon the aesthetic of the site. We created that aesthetic by working from scratch and starting with the logo. It had to capture the ethos of the Exhi community, which is one of timeless elegance, taste and sophistication. As the demographic of art lovers is one which cuts across all age ranges the logo and subsequent branding needed to cut through to everyone who caught sight of it. To that end, it was designed to combine a clear and uncluttered sense of expertise with an obvious accessibility.

Once the logo was in place it was used as the foundation of the rest of the website. By using plenty of white space we created a site which provided the perfect backdrop for the art work and exhibitions under discussion. The other key demand was that the site be truly responsive, working just as effectively across the full range of mobile devices. Our team of experts ensured that this was the case, delivering an online presence which loads quickly and smoothly no matter how it is accessed, and which invites exploration and interaction.

The last point was the one which makes Exhi genuinely unique. It presents a view of the sometimes elitist art-world in which the ordinary gallery-goers are the stars of the show. The site is designed to encourage visitors to upload and access reviews opinions and recommendations. By making it easy to search and find by genre, artist or exhibition, Exhi will democratise the world of art and create a thriving and growing community of like-minded people. OmDesign made this possible by designing and building a site which could be used quickly and easily whilst on the move, and which has the capacity to grow and change as the Exhi community does.

Logo Design for a New Tax Platform by OMdeSIGN Studio

taxanimi-stamp

Overview

Taxes, don’t you just love them? No, of course you don’t, nobody does, which is why Taxa.. was created. Their aim was to present an online platform capable of rendering the complexity of the Tax Code in plain English, interactive images and user-friendly schemes. In other words, to stop talking Tax, and start talking human.

Print

Challenge

Taxa..  asked OMdeSIGN London design studio to help with their branding and we were only too happy to say yes. They wanted something that embodied simplicity and quality, something that would cut through the fog of Tax law and reach out to the kind of wealth creators who realise that time is money and solutions save time.

taxanimi-print

Solution

We worked with Taxa..  to create a logo and brand which was authentic and minimalist whilst capturing an ethos of trust and simplicity. The inspiration was the cool logic of a chess game, an environment, just like tax affairs, in which rules matter and success depends upon playing by them. The image of the rook embodied a sense of security and trust, whilst the subtle colour scheme conveyed a feeling of calm. The logo was distinctive yet understated, immediately creating a stress free mood and the certainty that if Tax was a problem, then Taxa.. was the answer.

OMdeSIGN redesigns and revamps the online presence of the University of Essex Summer School

When the University of Essex Summer School needed a complete revamp of their online presence, they turned to London based web design agency OMdeSIGN to get the job done.

The University of Essex Summer School was established in 1963 and, since then, has been teaching data analysis with an emphasis on social sciences. The teaching they offer is highly specialised but widely applicable, and the emphasis placed on the importance of research has enabled them to establish a first rate reputation amongst Doctoral and Masters Students, postdoctoral students, researchers and university departments.

University Website

The Essex Summer School came to OMdeSIGN when they realised that their existing online presence simply wasn’t up to the job in hand. We took a look and agreed with them; the navigation was inconsistent and frequently frustrating and content was duplicated many times across the site. Not only did this create a poor impression, but it meant staff at the Summer School wasted far too much time updating the same content multiple times.

We began to put things right by crafting a logo which captured the ethos of the School and expressed it in a visually appropriate manner. This was then used as the basis of an aesthetic overhaul of the entire site. We created wire frames, kept the small amount of existing content which was effective, and filled the wire frames with imagery and branding which was consistent, bespoke and perfectly captured the offer of the Summer School. We also engineered the finished site to ensure that it was simple to navigate, easy to manage and responsive to the full range of mobile devices. Having suffered a website which wasn’t fit for purpose, the Summer School now boasts an online presence they can be genuinely proud of.

Since its launch, the new Summer School website has proved to be a huge success, and an online reflection of a first rate educational establishment.
