Workspace Design & Build Responsive Website Design

Working alongside a Manchester based PR firm we were given a brief to design and develop a responsive website and corporate logo for Workspace Design & Build. The design brief specified that the project must be built on Wordpress CMS, feature a contact form, gallery to showcase various Workspace case studies and blog. Wordpress is a great platform for those on a budget but our in-house coded framework RedPrism is better suited for people wanting something a little more bespoke and specialised.. A wireframe design and Photoshop mockup were initially created and presented to the client. The home page features the main hero slider featuring Workspace Projects and the whole site built with royal blue and grey is complemented by professional Photography of workspace projects. The Gibson font family was used for the project which hits the right spot for many people and on many levels. It is a humanist sans serif typeface designed by eminent Canadian type designer Rod McDonald. The big bold titles stand out on every page and fit the style of the site perfectly. The final result is a great looking website that looks beautiful on any device and showcases the client's projects. We have three tiers of website design: 1. Brochure style websites are our most affordable and serve well for businesses needing a primary web presence. 2. Wordpress built websites are our middle of the road price band. Wordpress is a CMS platform originally designed for blogging but over the years, it's been heavily modified and can also be used for online stores. Wordpress allows for the end user to change and add their own content. Built from base templates, we help to keep costs down for our customers. 3. RedPrism, is our fully bespoke framework and CMS, all hand coded in-house our backend developer created it to be lightning fast, secure and fully customisable to the customer's requirements. ...

Brochure Style Website Design

Another site goes live this week, this time instead of a CMS managed site, KKThompson Solicitors Wigan wanted a simple yet attractive brochure style website. The main reason businesses choose a brochure style website is that the message they're trying to convey is simple and one that does not need to change too often. Once the brochure style website design is looking as it should, and the web pages have the relevant content on them, then there's no real need to change this over a period of time. In essence, it is like a physical brochure except it is viewed online, and it is most suited to smaller businesses. While many companies want to control their website content and be able to make changes as and when they would like, if the business is only going to make changes very rarely then it is more cost effective to have a simple brochure style website compared to a content managed site. ...

Responsive Web Design Westhoughton

It has been predicted that in 2014 people using mobile devices to view websites will outweigh people using desktop computers for web searches. When local business and partner Wallace Printers of Westhoughton approached us in November 2013 and asked us to create them an aesthetically pleasing responsive website we jumped at the chance. They had seen what we had done with our own site and blog and really liked the positive results we had recieved. Wallace already had a current website which was created using flash which (all the rage many years ago). Sadly as the web progressed people reallised that flash sites weren't the future and you were left you with a website that was only good if people knew it was their in the first place. ...

Responsive Website Design

Over the last past years, responsive web design has been gaining popularity and is now considered to be one of the best ways to design websites that look great on any device, from smartphones to smart TVs. So, what is responsive website design? A better question to ask might be, what problem does responsive website design solve? Well, as you may have noticed, computers aren’t the only piece of hardware with a web browser anymore. Nearly every phone and tablet has the facility to view websites nowadays. In an ideal world our customers will all be sat at their desk drinking coffee when they stumble across our sites but this is no longer true. With people being busier than ever & the staggering growth in mobile usage now means that you can no longer assume your website will be viewed on a desktop browser. In fact, in a year's time, a greater percentage of visits to your site will be made via mobile than a desktop computer - making responsive web design an absolute must. Have you ever tried to access a website on a mobile or tablet device and been frustrated by broken or unloadable content? This is how your customers will experience your brand without responsive website design or at least a site that fits the browser! ...
