Free Webinar: Responsive Web Design

Are you losing potential from your website because some visitors are turned away by a user experience that does not suit their mobile or tablet device? This is a question that every website owner should be asking themselves.

Are you catering for the needs of your mobile users?


Are you losing potential from your website because some visitors are turned away by a user experience that does not suit the mobile web? This is a question that nearly every website owner should be asking themselves since a study conducted by Google and Ipsos found that as many as 79% of top advertisers do not have mobile optimised landing pages.  By not being one of those people your site will be in the top 21% amongst mobile users and the rewards are huge as we will discuss.

The success of a website comes from its ability to engage with its viewers. Here we discuss the ways that you can make your website more successful for your business.

Web font rendering techniques


Web font rendering techniques

Having been limited to using the ‘web safe’ font set (Arial, Verdana, Courier, Georgia and Times New Roman) since the dawn of time, it’s been refreshing to see the emergence of several font rendering techniques over the past few years. Here’s a summary of the three most popular solutions.

Front-end Development


Front-end DevelopmentAlthough we emphasise the importance of good user experience, a slick design, and writing great back-end (server side) code, it is the front-end which delivers the interface for the user and will ultimately deliver a successful experience for your users.

Providing rich, immersive experiences which are on-brand, engaging and interactive is a skill which cannot be underestimated. When we build the Front End for a website or web application, we do it accurately, efficiently and to very high standards. Front-end development should be 100% defect free, it should be pixel perfect and it should work perfectly with whatever underlying back-end systems are in place.

Front-end Development

HTML5 and CSS3 have grown up, they now support the user interface in a way which they just couldn’t in previous versions. They are adaptive, semantic and full of features which can be exploited to deliver the user interface richly and with great efficiency. Our team use HTML and CSS frameworks to suit each project and deliver well formed, modular code on each project. The list of limitations on what can be achieved is becoming very short and you’ll need a team that can exploit it all.

Javascript

As the web has developed and continues to mature, one language has provided core functionality within the front-end of your site or application. Javascript provides solutions in your browser which we can’t or don’t want to deliver using the server and our team are experts in using it. More and more of the interactive or complicated features of websites are delivered using Javascript, so as your project grows, you’ll need a great team behind you.

We’d really love to hear about your new project. Please don’t hesitate to contact us.
