Responsive Web Design

Responsive design is a popular topic in the web design world at the moment and the importance of having a responsive website has dramatically increased in importance this year. You may be surprised to hear what percentage of users are accessing your website on mobile devices but this is a trend that is only going to grow.

wordpress responsive web designWordPress were an early adopter of the “mobile first” approach and have been working that way with theme development for some time. So if your website is already built on WordPress and you are using a recent, modern theme your site is probably already “mobile friendly”. Without getting too technical a theme means a collection of files and images which give your website style, colour and images.

But why is a mobile friendly website important?

Well a user could really struggle to view an older website on a mobile device which will probably lead to them leaving to view a more viewable website and may never return to yours. Also Google have started to rank down sites that are not mobile friendly, this means that unless you are using a mobile friendly theme your website will appear lower in search results than more modern mobile friendly websites.

To clarify, mobile friendly means that your website can be viewed on mobile devices which include tablets and mobile phones. If your target audience will probably be using mobile devices to view websites then this will be an issue for you. You can find out really easily by submitting your website for a free review to Google, just follow this link to Google’s mobile friendly test and submit your websites address.

Regular website updates

It’s always a good idea to update your website both with content and design, all time spent on your site is time well spent. If you can login and edit your own page content your already a step ahead. If you are thinking of upgrading your website and would like some input just get in touch by calling 07732 614914 or use our contact page to get in touch with your questions.

Web Design Process

We get asked by new clients what is our process here at Adur Design.

So how do we get your website designed and out there promoting your business? Well it’s quite simple, our system has been refined to a three stage process which will take your idea from sketch book to a new, fully functioning professional website.

We work with you closely through these key project stages: Design – Build – Launch

Here is our three stage process in more detail:

The Design phase involves a full consultation to find out what your website requires. We scope your website project and work out features, functionality, timescale and budget. From there we work on the website design, look and feel along with the user experience.

We then produce design proofs will reflect the live website and incorporate your branding and style. Once the design is finalised we can then move to the build phase.

The Build phase is where we take the finished design and build a prototype which is a live working website built out to match the design that we have produced. The various page templates are also built at this stage to match your content and feature requirements.

The prototype website is tested for multi device use and you’re able to view the prototype website build at this stage so you can see project progress. Once the prototype build is complete we can then populate the build with your supplied content and launch your new website.

The Launch phase involves a live hosting environment being setup and the prototype build is migrated to build out the live website. Final live testing is carried out and then all urls (website addresses) are then switched to point at the new website.

Then your new website is now live for the world to see!

We also offer training and support to help you make the best use of your website going forward. This training includes creating blog posts and editing page content and will help you take control of your web presence.

If you would like to discuss your new website project, add in new features or bring a new look and feel to your website feel free to get in touch by calling: 07732 614914. You can also get a quote by getting in touch via our contact page.

Responsive Web Design – Why Is This Important?

There have been some developments in the web industry recently, some search engines are ranking down websites that are not responsive and usable on multiple devices.

This means that unless your website has a responsive design and is easily usable on mobile and tablet devices this will directly effect where your website appears in searches. This is now termed as “mobile friendly” and has caused mixed feelings but overall it makes for a better user experience for mobile users which is now the fastest growing web audience.

Google in particular are putting mobile users first and another factor to take into account is page load speed which includes optimised images, these are small file sizes which download quickly. You can see how your website is doing by entering the url (web address) into Google’s mobile friendly test.

If you would like work carried out on your website which can include a design review just call 07732 614914 or use our contact page to get in touch as we’re happy to help!

Responsive Web Design

wordpressAnother day, another WordPress web design project and I’ve been looking at the latest WordPress themes. One major consideration is responsive web design as it is a must for multi-device access requirements.

Our new client wants the new website’s users to be able to view their new WordPress website on a number of ways including tablet and mobile devices.

Responsive design is a must have now and if your website isn’t mobile and tablet friendly we recommend that you look at this to keep your users engaged. This will help your user experience and ensure that your audience keeps coming back!
