All businesses, both large and small, need a modern website to present their products or services in a positive manner and this is where older sites automatically fall down, both technically and creatively.
Nowadays a website needs to work seamlessly on mobile, tablet and desktop computers. It's vital that potential customers can access the information they want quickly and easily.
Anybody can build a website nowadays, but few can design one and my goal is always to put the website visitor first. As Steve Jobs once said, design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.
With the introduction of GDPR it is also important to ensure where possible that websites are technically compliant with the new law, taking steps such as being SSL protected, while using self-hosted fonts and and scripts.
The most effective websites tend to be very clean with uncluttered layouts and clearly legible text. I am a great believer in allowing empty space, so a design can breath, allowing users to find what they need without confronting a jumbled mess.
A website is the first point of contact for most new customers, so it's important that the right balance is found. Sometimes I'll spend hours just playing with colour combinations and then decide it looks best on plain white. Every site is different.
The websites are created using Foundation or Bootstrap front-end frameworks, which can be used to create static websites like this one or matched to a variety of content management systems with different features.
Bootstrap was created by some employees from Twitter and is now the most widely used responsive framework in the world by far, while Foundation is used on websites, such as Amazon, eBay, Disney and this one. Each framework has pros an cons, but they are both very capable.
