We hand build our websites from scratch which enables us to really get the most out of the end product. If you have ever used a Wix or Squarespace site, you may have noticed the endless options they give you for every single page or component on the site. Although this may sound like a positive, it really effects the performance of your site which can have a big impact on your SEO ranking. Endless options means endless code and most of this will never be used.
We follow the latest web development technologies and conventions to make sure every site is as up to date as possible. The world wide web is fast moving and constantly growing so staying ahead of these changes enables us to make sure every website is prepared for the future. Although we try our hardest to meet these standards, every website will occasionally need maintenance to keep it inline and secure.
During the development stages of a site we have a few important considerations:
By starting from the ground up, we have full control over exactly how much code will be part of your finished website. By building ‘mobile first’, this means mobile devices won’t have to load as much information as someone with a better internet connection on desktop computers. This will improve your sites user experience by simply giving users the information quicker and prevent them from leaving your site too soon.
Instead of being overwhelmed by thousands of options with no real explanation on how to use them, we make sure our content management systems are tidy, well labelled and easy to follow. This will allow you focus on managing your site and creating new content instead of getting frustrated with non user friendly components.
With many different browsers including Chrome, Safari and Internet Explorer all demanding slightly different development approaches we make sure all our sites go through thorough cross-browser checks to make sure all potential users have the same experience.
We follow WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines) to make sure the widest range of users can enjoy each site to the same level. Colour contrast is an important part of any well designed site to allow visually impaired users to read text easily. The use of screen readers is also a big consideration when building a site so any person that uses a screen reader can have their own computer read information out loud and assist them on where to navigate to.
We aim to build every website with security being one of the most important factors. Protecting your site from spam and/or attacks will keep your information secure and prevent you from breaking GDPR Guidelines. With our server being based in Coventry, it’s much easier to monitor the firewall on each site to prevent any attacks from being successful. Most servers are based in different countries in relation to your business so we get to keep a close eye on all the relevant data.
Once your site is built and launched, we can run you through how to use it with CMS training. This will help you to feel comfortable using your site and will allow you to ask any questions you may have. If your site is relatively large, we can offer monthly support to make sure everything is maintained and running smoothly at all times.
If you’re a designer who needs someone to bring your projects to life we can offer our development services without the need to go through the whole design and development process as one. Feel free to contact us for a quote and any questions you may have about working with us.
