Web Design. HTML5: The Facts And The Myths

html5

You can’t escape it. Everyone’s talking about HTML5. it’s perhaps the most hyped technology since people started putting rounded corners on everything and using unnecessary gradients. In fact, a lot of what people call HTML5 is actually just old-fashioned DHTML or AJAX.

First, Some Facts

Once upon a time, there was a lovely language called HTML, which was so simple that writing websites with it was very easy. So, everyone did, and the Web transformed from a linked collection of physics papers to what we know and love today.

Most pages didn’t conform to the simple rules of the language (because their authors were rightly concerned more with the message than the medium), so every browser had to be forgiving with bad code and do its best to work out what its author wanted to display.

OMdeSIGN designs and builds state of the art website for brand new Silver by Aston Martin range

London based web design agency, OmDesign, have completed work on one of their most exciting and challenging briefs to date – the brand new e-commerce website for the stunning Silver by Aston Martin range.

Aston Martin is a brand that needs no introduction. For more than 100 years the name has been synonymous with style, elegance, craftsmanship and some of the most coveted and exclusive sports cars in the luxury car category. Now they have decided to branch into exclusive silver gifts and accessories and as such needed a sophisticated, state of the art e-commerce site to showcase and sell the range.

Aston Martin has a very distinct style and brand image, so the team at OmDesign needed to work very closely with the brand managers and get sign off at every stage to ensure that the overall look and feel of the website adhered to the strict brand guidelines. This meant that a lot of time went into the aesthetic design before the more technical side of things could be considered.

Using Djang as a platform the OmDesign team then began planning the build of the e-commerce site, which needed to provide an elegant, sophisticated browsing and shopping experience for the customer with intuitive suggestions as to what the customer might like to look at next. The team decided to divide the website up into four distinct sections: eating and drinking, travel and picnic, gifts and accessories, models and replicas and the exclusive Aston Martin Black, which was a bespoke design section. A simple drop down navigation system allows for easy browsing, and the site has been optimised for all screen sizes to ensure that visual quality is not lost on smart phones or tablets.

As well as product pages the site also features a handy store locator so that customers can find out where the nearest stockist of the range is, as well as a news area and press section.

So far, the website has proven to be a great success and a worth addition to the Aston Martin legacy, with online sales of the range already exceeding expectations.

OMdeSIGN is a London based web design company with experience designing and developing websites for a wide range of sectors.

OMdeSIGN creates a dynamic new website for Consalia

London ecommerce web design  studio OMdeSIGN, has designed, built and launched a dynamic new website for sales performance specialists Consalia.

The new site has significantly upgraded Consalia’s impact and presence on the web, while at the same time engaging with audiences in a simpler, more approachable way.

Consalia specialises in providing tailored sales performance improvement solutions and expert consultancy on a local and global basis to major clients such as Hertz, Hewlett Packard, Renault, Siemens and Vodaphone. The company therefore operates within a highly competitive, continuously evolving field.

The brief  was to create a new website which would clearly reflect Consalia’s philosophy, values, culture and people and enable users to feel much closer to the organisation. The structure of the site would also need to enable Consalia to manage and update it on a regular basis.

OMdeSIGN’s solution focuses on using the buying cycle as the theme and taking the user on a journey by creating a natural, seamless flow to the layout of the whole site. Ease of navigation has therefore been combined with carrying the homepage style throughout to ensure the user never gets lost. Photography is also skilfully used to express culture, environment etc to increase the visual appeal of the site and not overface readers with text.

The effect is a very stylish, clean looking site that is highly impactful and almost artistic, with text layout, fonts and graphics all combining aesthetically to communicate and reflect perfectly the culture and values of Consalia.
