Responsive On Mobile

RESPONSIVE

Fluid Adaptive Layouts

With so many devices on the market, users will typically come to your site from different devices – smartphone, tablets or desktop device, so it’s important that your website automatically adapts its display to suit each device being used. With responsive layout design, your website will adapt to the screen size. This keeps the information displayed consistent throughout.

 

Why is this also good for ranking your site?

As more and more users view websites on their mobile devices, Google wants to make it easier to find relevant, mobile-optimized websites. To this end, Google uses mobile-friendliness as a factor in ranking search results. This means mobile responsive websites get higher positions in the Google’s Mobile Search Engine.

We do one more thing that you will really like

Once we build your website, we do one more thing that you will really like! Any page design or section that was developed initially, gets recreated as a reusable template. This means that you can recreate new sections or pages from the original design and with just one click. As a result, you then get the same consistent design, look and feel as a starting point for any new content you wish to add.

Design

DESIGN

We deliver on design and function and to be honest our obsession with detail is something we can’t help ourselves with. We treat every website as if it were our own, that’s our philosophy. Design matters, so the look and feel of your site pages reflect what your brand stands for.

 

Why does it matter?

People make instant assumptions on your credibility by looking at how the site is presented visually. It’s a fact that website design is a primary factor in how visitors perceive your business. Apart from the site aesthetics, design is also about how people interact with your site, how it functions and ultimately how your website creates a great user experience.
