Usability & User Experience (UX)

Ensuring a natural flow everyone can use and enjoy.

For each of our design projects, we create a plan to develop a website or application that is simple, usable and beautifully designed. A user should not only be able to easily navigate your website or application, but also have an enjoyable experience doing so. But we never let bells and whistles obscure our thinking. As an experienced digital agency, user experience is always our top priority.

Information Architecture

Content where customers expect to find it.

The information architecture of your site underpins your users’ experience. It is the structuring of your content, pages and web apps to best serve the needs of your users. And as the foundation of your website or application, its importance cannot be understated. By spending time on your information architecture, you ensure a logical user-focused structure that helps potential customers complete their tasks online, meaning increased valuable conversions.

Interface Design

Balancing style and substance.

We don’t do design for its own sake - function and design have to work together. By focussing on a users' needs, understanding their requirements and ensuring designs are fit for purpose and easy to use by everyone, we ensure our client’s business requirements are met. Understanding content requirements, your service goals and developing structural wireframes around this information is key.

Coding Technologies

Expertise covering the breadth of the web.

HTML5, CSS, PHP and MySQL Logos

Developing is all about making things work. It is the techie bit of the process and is what makes beautiful design into something that works in your browser. When it comes to development, we’re platform neutral. The majority of our work is created using open source tools and our team works closely with clients to choose the appropriate platform for the project in hand. For the more technically minded people, we use PHP MySQL, Javascript and HTML/CSS to build the majority our sites and applications.

Content Management

Creative freedom, powerful integration, ultimate flexibility.

Whilst most smartphones offer a “full” web browsing experience, it is neither an ideal nor efficient way for a user to interact with your website. With more than 20% of internet users exclusively accessing the web through mobile devices, your digital presence must be just as effective on a phone or tablet as it is on a desktop - otherwise risk being left behind. So whether you’re interested in a responsive designed website or developing a specific mobilised web design, we are here to help.
