Designed for mobile device & desktop
Mobile devices play a growing role in design and delivery.
We recommend mobile first website design for a fast, compliant website.
All business can benefit from using mobile first design as a strategy.
Smartphones are surpassing personal computer use and increasingly, people are using their mobile devices to search and find your business website, even if it's to just click your phone number and contact you.
A fast, purpose built, mobile first website, might attract more visitors!
Built to a standard
Following coding standards results in a superior build quality.
We prefer building HTML 5, mobile first website design that follows W3C coding standards where possible.
Following coding standards results in a superior build quality while providing the highest level of compatibility.
By following a standard, the user who may have some sort of limitation be it technical (bandwidth limitations, older device) or physical (visual, cognitive or motor control) will be ensured access to the information on the website as expected.
CMS such as Wordpress & Joomla! can be made standards compliant. This requires using specialised plugins that depend on your theme also being standards compliant.
Ensuring compatibility, usability, searchability, reliability, speed and expected user control will have a positive affect on the overall success of your business website.
