There are many aspects required to create a professional grade website. Two key elements are design and development. Understanding the difference between the two is quite simple:
Would you rather have a picture of television in your living room or a real TV?
Suffice to say, you’d probably choose the real TV. Your website should be no different. When creating a website we need both design and development. Let’s break it down a little further:
This is the act of planning and creating a visually appealing website. What colors will you use? How many elements will be a part of your site? Are you looking for something fun, serious or classy? Our web designer will create the framework of what will eventually become your website. Some basic principles include:
A web designer is an artist that takes the ideas in your mind and visually creates them on a “canvas.” (The canvas being a computer)
This is when things get a bit more complicated. When the web designer is done, the basic framework is passed along to the developer. As we touched on earlier, the designer takes the idea from your mind and puts it into an artform. The developer is the person who brings it all to life.
Let’s take your email account as a great example. You might open an email, download an attachment, reply to the recipient, archive it and click back into your inbox. All of these little functions work because code is running the background telling your computer and a distant server what those buttons should do on your command. The developer’s job is to ensure all of this works seamlessly.
You understand your business and we understand the web. We’ll listen to your unique set of requirements and then turn those into a functional, easy to use website. Our goal is to ensure your new or existing website is not only a reflection of you and your company, but something you can stand back and be proud of. (Us too!)
But we don’t just stop there, we’ll teach you how to use your new website and ensure you get the most from it. It’s important to us that you’re given the necessary tools to hit the ground running. That means less time emailing us and more time running your business, the way it should be.
We are a small firm which means we work closely with our clients. Our limited overhead also means we’re able to accommodate any budget. Drop us a message! No sales pressure, we’ll answer your questions and when you’re ready we’ll build the site around your schedule.
