A great website is not about fancy graphics, java scripts and animations. It is about creating a pleasurable, useful experience for your visitors….one they will want to repeat over and over again!
As a professional web design business, we have created and re-created many sites. The ‘great’ ones have certain things in common. We thought we’d share those elements with you..
Responsive web design is the practice of building a website suitable to work on every device and every screen size, no matter how large or small, mobile or desktop. Responsive web design is focused around providing an intuitive and gratifying experience for everyone. Desktop computer and cell phone users alike all benefit from responsive websites.
Three key technical features are the heart of responsive Web design :
• Media queries and media query listeners
• A flexible grid-based layout that uses relative sizing
• Flexible images and media, through dynamic resizing or CSS
Truly responsive Web design requires all three features to be implemented.Responsive web design presents the information from the site in the best visual manner regardless of screen size. Unlike print design, web design has always been presented on canvases of varying sizes.Responsive Web Design is the latest & most flexible solution to design that addresses these differences.
Here are the perks of responsive web design:
• Increasing your reach to tablet and mobile audiences
• Increase sales and conversion rates
• Consolidate your analytics and reporting
• Increase your visibility in search engines
• Save time and cost on mobile development
• Save time and cost on site management
• Enhance user's offline browsing experience
There has been a distinct audience shift towards mobile browsing and responsive design represents the simplest way to reach users across multiple devices and ensures a seamless user experience.
To the general public, logos serve as an instant reminder of a company or a product; to the client they're the point of recognition on which their branding hangs; and to us designers, they represent the challenge of incorporating our clients' ideologies into one single graphic.
Every logo has a story to tell. If you view a logo as mere artwork or a pattern of lines and/or text, you will not be able to unravel the deeper meaning behind the logo. Ideally, a good logo has two stories to tell: one, the obvious one, and second, the hidden one.
Our philosophy is…
to create something original that stands out in a sea of identities.
to create something quickly while retaining quality.
to create something that conveys an intended message.
A logo derives its meaning and usefulness from the quality of that which it symbolizes.
The need is to design something that will last through the ages, still open to small iterations along the way.
We design logo that is..
• & Appropriate
The logo we design is not simply a shallow piece of artwork but consists of deep thinking and meticulous ideology.

HTML5 has definitely become a trend alongside its lil’ brother CSS3 because of their functions and utilities which makes them the next best thing in web design. Better even than Flash, maybe, in some situations.
We need to move on and start using CSS3 and HTML5 today. The community will become a much more exciting and innovative playground, which in turn will improve experiences for as well as draw in more users to this dynamic new Web, which in turn will attract more clientele — effectively expanding the market.
The idea behind HTML5 is that it’s not one large entity, but rather made up of smaller parts that work together to create something innovative and advanced.
Why Use It
• HTML5 will load much quicker than its older brother because it implements WebSockets.
• Mobile phone applications will be much more accessible if written in HTML5 because you will not have to write applications for a specific brand of phone but rather can create universal applications for all phones.
• This language is growing and will only result in more, new, better and faster features that will leave old websites looking outdated.
• HTML5 and CSS3 together will give you some serious designer credibility.
A website template is a pre-designed webpage, or set of HTML webpages that anyone can use to "plug-in" their own text content and images into.
Website templates allow novice web developers to quickly build a website without the need to create webpages from scratch. Website templates help make affordable professional-looking websites available to everyone.
Sometimes using a CMS just isn't the right fit, that's where our website templates come in handy! Our website templates are easy to customize and can work for nearly any niche of websites.
Your business is your brand. Your brand is our business!
Does the design fall in line with the overall theme of the company?
Does the design ‘say’ what the company tries to say?
In some instances and with some clients, Its not even about to make a ‘great’ design, however, this is expected to make something that would be well received by the company and their audience.
Creating a super sweet logo and letterhead doesn’t mean a ton if the consumer doesn’t have a great perception of the company. However, good brand design can help build a solid foundation for a brand.
We pick an idea or feeling and nail that down as best as possible.
