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.

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.

Creative Design meets Creative Development featured image

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.
