Bespoke Websites, Web Design

Is your website responsive? Why is responsive design important for your SME.

I’ve raised the topic of responsive web design on a few occasions previously, and it’s important enough to anyone with a presence on the Internet for it to be a subject that’s worth exploring again. In simple terms, Responsive Web Design (RWD) covers the aspects of a site which maximise accessibility, ease of use and the visitor experience. Via aspects of design such as lay-out and coding, RWD ensures that a site can be read, utilised and navigated no matter what the nature of the device through which it is being accessed. From a tablet to a smart phone via a laptop or our old friend the desk top computer, a site which utilises RWD will be at home no matter where it appears, with annoying aspects such as resizing, panning and scrolling kept to a bare minimum.

As designers, however, it can easy to slip into a discussion of the technical parameters of RWD without capturing its essence for the lay person. Put simply, it creates a one size fits all website, capable of snapping into position and working perfectly with the device at hand (and ‘at hand’ is more and more often an accurate description of how people access sites), a concept which is obviously beneficial when put like that, but one which some people still fear is just the kind of thing that web designers mention when they want to bump the price up a little bit.

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.

Choosing the right web design company for your website design project.

You’ll find numerous website design agencies to choose from, therefore it’s essential to choose one that is going to be perfect for you and your business. A website designer can do more than simply construct a couple of pages based on your brief. They’ll help you  produce a website that should best suit your visitors. Aside from creating the  ‘front end’ of your website, services that website designers can provide include things like:

COPYWRITING

BESPOKE WEB DEVELOPMENT

This will likely include things like content management system and e-commerce solutions.

Your budget as well as the scope of your project will certainly  determine what services you will require, plus it’s important to clarify these   together with your selected web design company right away.

When setting up a shortlist of website designers you can consider web sites that appeal to you, they don’t have to represent your market, and see who’s created them; in most cases this is indicated  in the footer area of the website.

Website designers of all sizes with satisfied customers will have their work presented on their own web sites. This can be the best indicator of whether the agency will have the ability deliver the results, however do make certain they were sufficiently involved with that site’s development. Once you have put together a list  of website designers, you can then  ask them to provide you with a web design proposal  that will allow you to decide if the agency will fit your company.

Usually, it’s been highly recommended for companies to put detailed requirements together prior to hiring a designer. However  many businesses won’t always realize what they or their potential customers are looking for, even if they believe they do.
