Your browser and screen is the container and it will vary in size and dimension depending on the device that you use, for example a smart phone is a lot smaller device than a tablet and a tablet than a PC – your website need to be adaptive to the devices and compatible with the browsers to ensure that your content benefit from an optimized display across all these devices.

In today’s day and age the standards for acceptable web design are extremely high, yet we still come across many websites that lack in visual appeal, functionality and most of all user friendliness. Everything becomes an online action – we shop, apply for things, do research and we even connect with people online…
Websites are cost-effective marketing engines that work for your brand around the clock. The exposure of your brand via a website is much broader than it would have been using print or even other media since it is not geographically bound and can create amazing business opportunities on a global scale – any person can visit your website with ease in the palm of their hand using their everyday smart phone. Websites are also not affected by office hours since your clients can acquire the information they need about your company, services and products at any time – they can even buy from your online shop on public holidays and even long after your company has closed for the day. This is the type of convenience that clients needs to get to ensure a good and long lasting connection with your brand.
Your online presence is of utmost importance! It is your brands’ representation on the Internet and acts as your agent during and after hours providing your clients with information, solutions and entertainment on the go. In web design we have a general, yet unofficial rule that the general user will form an opinion of your website within 5 seconds or less and decide if they would like to continue browsing your site or not.
A professional website design will directly influence your success in online presence. Make sure your website creates the best first and lasting impression of your brand by hosting a bespoke and functional website. That will ensure your website to have an amazing user experience that is easy to use and interesting to look at while providing your clients with the appropriate information they seek.
It is also important to incorporate social media to your website to ensure that your loyal customers and fans can easily follow you online. Also add the option for visitors to share your page links on their social platforms to increase the awareness of your brand in general – you cannot expect clients to share your information if you do not give them the option to do so.
