At Hudson Armstrong Design we design and build dynamic content-managed sites and secure e-commerce sites that are highly creative and technically robust. Website design projects can be complex matters, but our experienced team of designers and web developers will help you to plan, structure and deliver successful on-line strategies that are accessible, uncomplicated and easy to manage. An essential element of the project is considering the user experience (UX) and this is considered within the navigational structure of the site at the outset of the project.
Using a smartphone or tablet to surf the internet has increased dramatically over the last few years and since Google announced that it would prioritise the results rankings for those websites that are mobile friendly, being responsive has been an essential requirement for all websites. During the design element of your website project, we consider the design layout for the smartphone and tablet screen formats and the functionality that is a must have for mobile users.
Being responsive means that the layout of your website automatically resizes to suit the size of the screen on which the browser is being viewed. The user experience is enhanced by providing great usability and flexible navigation formats allow for easy access to menu buttons. Scrolling and swiping can also be used to great effect.
Mobile friendly design considerations:
Optimising images for all devices
Navigational position of menu and page elements to allow for landscape and portrait screen use
Restyling links and buttons to be touch friendly
Resizing text content to look great at different screen resolutions
Prioritising content to ensure information is relevant and has immediate impact
Content Management Systems (CMS)
By building your website with a content management system (CMS), you have complete control over the editing of the content on your website. All our websites are built with software that provides full editable access to the text and image content on your website - functionality that allows you to keep your website content fresh and totally up to date.
The popularity of online shopping continues and an e-commerce website can provide 24/7 buying opportunities for potential customers. We have experience in various robust off the shelf shopping solutions that can provide an outstanding platform for your online shop.
We work with our holiday letting clients and their bookings software, such as SuperControl and Holiday Bookings Online, to provide a fully integrated approach to your website and tariff/availability solution.
