Ramsey's Design Lab Ltd Q&A
What makes a great website?
A great site is one that is easy to use and navigate, is engaging and presents you, your company or your products in the very best light. Sounds simple but the simple things get in the way of a user focussed website. Oh, and let's not forget it's mobile friendly, given that 70% of traffic is from mobile. We create user friendly web journeys designed to maximise your business. Remove the barriers to sales and glide your customers through to checkout/contact. From simple WordPress to full blown bespoke website design, with UI & UX analysis, whatever your business needs we can deliver.

Working With Ramsey’s Design Lab Ltd, What Should I Expect?
We like to hold a meeting with all involved parties to get things started. We usually run through a whole host of branding questions to discover drivers and gather insights. Totally happy to do this online, as we're used to working with clients separated by space and time!
A collaborative stage to assign priorities, establish hierarchy of importance, what’s feasible & create a deliverable design brief.
We’ll create concepts; this is a process of trial and error until we’re happy to show appropriate drafts to you.
Final artwork delivered, launched or deployed.
The first revision round is intended to address the biggest changes. Elements to consider at this stage:
• Do you require changes to the font?
• Do you require changes to the color palette?
• Does the project successfully follow the brief?
• Provide feedback on the style and form. Do the design elements
accurately reflect your brief?
• Provide feedback on the structure. Are you happy with the flow of
• Do you like the text to graphic ratio?
Feedback should be consolidated and provided at one time. Most projects have multiple stakeholders at the client level - it's important to get feedback from all stakeholders before moving forward. If the MD has not seen the graphic until after the final revision and decides to make changes, the project is likely to require additional revision rounds for a fee.
Feedback should be specific. For example “I like the style of this leaflet here and the style of icons used here. Please use these styles for the next draft." Hopefully some design examples were provided in the brief, but if not, it's likely that these examples will help us the most.
Feedback should be actionable. For example "Title color needs to be changed to green and made larger.” Feedback like "This really needs more depth" could be interpreted too many different ways - it is in your best interest to verbalise or show what is meant by "depth."
• Was all your feedback from your first round included?
• Does the project successfully follow the brand guidelines?
• List any typo or content changes (note that content changes should
be kept to a minimum)
Elements to consider at this stage also include minor tweaks to colors, text, and positioning.
Ensure all your feedback from round two was included and no typos or grammar errors made it past the final round of edits.
What information do you need from a client before you can start work?
Expected project due date. Agreed project cost, plus company style guide and logo if they have them.
What do you love most about your job?
Simon is a creative powerhouse, he just loves all things design. He's constantly doodling or learning new skills and techniques. He probably spends at least 3-4 hours a week doing tutorials on new stuff.
What inspired you to start your own business?
We wanted the ability to have a better work/ life balance and to have a nice working environment, we work from home with awesome views of the rolling Devon countryside. We love having the freedom to create partnerships and good working relationships with our own clients. The buck stops with us and we like it that way.
Why should our clients choose you?
I'm not sure I can answer that- there's a lot of very talented folks out there. There's all the usual stuff, we're highly experienced and have a huge breadth of knowledge in a huge variety of business sectors. I guess at the end of the day it all comes down to relationships and whether you think we'd be a good fit for your project or company. We love what we do and we'd love to hear from you.
