We design custom websites, which means that the site is designed
particularly for the needs of the business or application. When
planning a custom website there are 4 areas which should be
designed to make the website successful.
This is the 'look and feel' of the site. This is what gives the
site its visual personality. Colour, images, borders, fonts, and
all the big and small details of layout contribute to the final
look. The design should reflect the company personality, the
purpose of the site, and should appeal to the type of person who
will be using the site. Ideally it's interesting, beautiful, and
original as well.
UI and User experience (UX)
As well as looking great, the design must make it easy for the
user to achieve the goals of the website. Intuitive interfaces
combine clear messages with expected behavior. Many visual cues are
used to help the user choose a path of action. A hierarchy of
information - most important things most obvious - is created using
colour, position, size, and contrast. Interactive tools, buttons,
and links are clearly differentiated from static items and are
tested to make sure they are clear and behave logically.
Flexibility and standards
The website will vary depending on the browser and device the
site is being viewed on. Planning and management of images and
plugins along with adherence to web standards helps in designing a
site which performs well on different platforms.
CMS(Content Management System) customisation
Umbraco CMS can be customised
so that updates to the site are easily managed without breaking the
design. Automatically resizing images and special widgets for
frequently updated areas ensures that the site will continue to
look and work well.
