Thanks to all those that attended the responsive web design webinar on Tuesday the 28th of August 2012. It was great to share our understanding and experience of responsive design, thanks for your questions and feedback. We’ll be incorporating some of them in an updated seminar.
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.
A study conducted by Google and Ipsos found that as many as 79% of top advertisers do not have mobile optimised landing pages. This means that these websites are almost certainly not converting their goals as effectively on handheld devices as on desktop computers. Responsive web design offers a very efficient way of tackling this problem quickly and effectively.
Join our free webinar to learn about responsive web design. Hutchhouse’s Managing Director John Stiles and the team will explore the features and benefits of this ‘device agnostic’ approach to web design and describe the key processes involved.
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.
So Pinterest seems to be the latest social craze that’s sweeping the nation, and indeed the globe. You’d be forgiven for thinking that there wasn’t any space in the marketplace for another social network, but it seems there is and this already popular app is taking more and more of a slice by the day.
According to TechCrunch Pinterest has over 10.4 million users already. 9m of these people are logging in monthly, and 2m login daily so naturally it’s creating quite a buzz within the industry and rightly so. If the stats are to be believed some 97% are women which makes a refreshing change. For once the usual ‘early adopter’ crowd have taken to the wings and it’s the ladies who have the upper hand on this one.
A website’s user interface ultimately needs to fulfil a purpose. Often it can have a single goal such as creating an enquiry or can often need to perform a selection of useful functions like searching, booking and purchasing. However big or small your requirement might be, well structured user interface design and a considered website content strategy will always come into play.
All too often we see websites that perform lots of tasks adequately, but rarely fulfil the objectives of a) the site user and b) the website owner.
With the emergence of mobile web in recent years, having a mobile site for your business or charity is becoming more important than ever. Here’s a couple of reasons why…
“There are currently 14 million mobile internet users in the UK. This figure is expected to rise to 17 million by 2012 and 19 million by 2013.”
“It’s estimated that by 2015 more people will be browsing the web via a mobile device than a desktop PC”

The introduction of HTML5 and CSS3 means less design restrictions, more interaction and a better user experience . The bridge between design and development is diminishing and this can only be a good thing for the web design community.
But, let’s not get carried away just yet. We’re still very much aware of the existence of prehistoric browsers such as IE6. Unfortunately, we can’t ignore them just yet but thankfully there are tools out there that will make these browsers play nicely.
