Why is User Experience Important?

User Experience in web design has risen in importance over recent years. User Experience or UX is the study, design and effort made by a website owner to give a website’s user the best possible experience whilst visiting their website.

So why is this so important? A good user experience will leave a good impression with a user and help to retain the user to look around and take in a website rather than leave quickly and probably never return. A good user experience also helps to build brand loyalty and development trust with a company or service provider.

Mobile friendly, responsive design is a must with a very high percentage of user traffic viewing your site on the move you have to provide a good mobile user experience. If your site is not mobile friendly we urge you to address this quickly, non-mobile friendly sites are now being ranked down in searches so be aware!

A positive user experience also can make life easy for a user so that they can find what they want on your website with clear navigation. Also having clearly labeled and easy to find buttons can help user to buy products on an e-commerce website.

So all of the above add up to keep your site in business, informing your audience and selling your products. If you would like more input on your website’s user experience and how we can help you don’t hesitate to call 07732 614914 or use our contact page to get in touch get in touch!

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.

Sujo Remi Testimonial

The website was launched on time for our exhibition and I can now login and edit the page content and also post blogs for my news page. Ant was very efficient and good to work with and he was with me every step of the way. I’m happy that I used Adur Design for my wordpress website, thank you Ant!”

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!

Jacqui’s WordPress Training Session Review

TestimonialI hired Ant for a couple of hours bespoke training on WordPress to help set up my blog. It was really useful to be able to have a session tailored to my own needs with an expert like Ant, and thanks to the preparation he did beforehand we were able to cover a surprising amount of stuff in the time. And he even answered all my questions in words I understood! Very worthwhile – thanks Ant!
