Let’s Make It Pretty
Your website’s design plays a huge role in capturing the attention of leads, creating the all-important desire. Good design will, quite simply, improve conversion rates. Your new website’s design will be informed by your objectives and our analysis, all while keeping UX in mind every step of the way.
Your brand guidelines will inform every design decision that we make. We’ll help you to refine your guidelines if required, resulting in a design that’s clean, functional and, most importantly, completely representative of your brand.
We All Love a Looker
Striking visuals drive sales, it’s as simple as that. Your design concepts do a lot of the heavy lifting. If your site doesn’t look good, then potential clients will immediately be a little less inclined to stay, even if you offer the best product in the world, if your website doesn’t show that off quickly and efficiently, then you’re missing out on a whole heap of sales.
Mapping It Out
We’ll put together concepts and map out how we expect the website to look – it’s important that you get a look and feel for how your website’s going to appear before you give it the final sign-off.
No doubt you’ve visited some fancy websites that interact with your mouse curser in entertaining ways. This can be excellent, as long as it doesn’t distract from the purpose of your website. Your design should always have user experience and sales in mind; no ifs, no buts. If the extravagant design doesn’t serve a purpose, then it simply shouldn’t be there.
The value of Website Design
Humans are a lot like magpies - we love shiny things.
Your website is the visual essence of your business' brand; the majority of your digital persona. Without good design, you don't have a good website.
While having the brightest colours and fanciest features will draw attention, good website design is so much more than that.
Think of Amazon, relatively speaking their site has quite a horrible design (if we do say so ourselves), and yet it works perfectly for their audience and service.
Our web designs are built around your personas and your service or products. After all, if your audience dislike the design, then it's simply not going to work.
A website is an investment. If you're having to change your website in a year or two, then it was a poor investment.
Our designs take into account both upcoming trends and your business' growth forecast - your website needs to grow alongside you.
This is done to enable you to add services or products as you progress, saving you time and money over time. Our websites are built to last.
Core web vitals
If you've ever visited a website that's taken an age to load, you'll understand the importance of core web vitals.
A slow website will turn potential customers away and get you penalised by Google - we really don't want that to happen.
A good design will ensure good site speed. Too many images or overly complex features and you'll experience site slowdown. We keep our designs sleek and low impact, meaning that your website will always load nice and quickly.
When designing a website, we'll work closely with you to ensure it's turning out exactly how you want. There's no point us going away and creating something that you don't feel suits your brand - we want to make sure you love the end product.
