YellowRoad Designs Q&A
What makes a great website?
The expectation for a great website is ever changing as the way we consume websites evolves with technology. We believe that for a website to be world class it needs to of course serve it's purpose with precision, but provide interactivity for the consumers, be easy to use and navigate, have compatibility on mobile and tablet and be visually appealing. The design process is key to mapping out the structure of a website to achieve these goals and more.
What questions might you ask a client when starting a new project?
It really depends on the project, but we always want to learn more about what the client is trying to achieve and what drives their desire to use a company like ours. Some of our clients like a detailed approach to the work with regular updates, and others would rather a minimalistic approach where they just see the results as we progress through the work.
Describe your creative process.
Our creativity is born out of the talent we employ. We don't believe you can teach creativity and it would be restrictive to govern it with process, so instead we focus on nurturing the talent within the business and giving them the most flexible and enjoyable working environment we can, so that they can unleash their creative minds and design the beautiful work we develop for our clients.
What do you love most about your job?
For me, the most important thing about running a business that makes me smile at the end of a long week if knowing we've helped other businesses achieve their goals, and that we've given them something that is of value to them.
What inspired you to start your own business?
It all started when my Sister-in-law started her own party design business, she was looking around for web designers to build an E-Commerce site and she had quite a reasonable budget at the time. She was quoted the cheapest price of £8,000 for her site, me, my brother (her husband) and a good friend all with years in the IT world knew that we could offer better to the market.
We started our business up and focused our brand on providing an affordable model to the new business start-up market, where we wanted to maintain affordability, transparency and honesty in our work. Since then we've continued to expand our service offerings and have lots of other services in our field of view to provide in the future.
Why should our clients choose you?
Because we have some of the most talented individuals working for us and settle for nothing less then perfection. We maintain our affordability and will be flexible throughout our relationship with a client, we hope that we can continue to make a positive impact on the different sectors and deliver world class quality web solutions.

Web Design and Branding
The complex fields of user experience design, information architecture, data realization, interaction design and other UX topics dominate and guide our design decisions every day. We specialize in interface design that prioritizes usability above all else. We believe navigation can be both simple and robust. That content isn’t king unless you can find it easily. We’re constantly sensitized to new ways users navigate and discover content, and incorporate only those approaches that fundamentally improve UX. We employ a combination of traditional techniques such as paper prototyping and contemporary technique such as remote user testing to ensure your audience enjoys the most intuitive experience possible. Meeting any of these goals requires a process and strategy. We talk with you, learn everything we can and put our experience and creativity to work.
WordPress is our go-to content management system (CMS) for most projects that require easy to use tools for daily site maintenance. From small businesses with modest needs to some of the world’s biggest brands, WordPress has become the dominant platform for maintaining a sophisticated online presence. Two reasons why: (1) It’s easy to use. (2) Its vast plugin technology enables small and large sites alike to affordably add new features and quickly manage content. And with one of the largest developer communities constantly producing new and better technology, you’re guaranteed the benefits of an innovation network effect.

SEO + Social Marketing
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is a highly technical topic that basically boils down to one thing: getting more eyeballs on your content. One of the critical first steps to any responsibly designed site is ensuring that your site’s code and content are primed to index highly in search engines. By laying down a strong foundation of clean, optimized code, we give your content the best chance it can have to rank for relevant keywords and phrases. Technical Foundations of Optimization: - Yoast implementation - Canonical tags - URL optimization Google PageSpeed optimization -XML sitemap - Robots.txt and URL rewrite rules - On-Page Optimizations (Title tags, meta descriptions, h1 tags, and alt image tags) - Manual search engine submission Please see more information on this service found here: https://yrdesigns.co.uk/services/seo-social-marketing-milton-keynes/
Supporting Children With Burns
Web URL: supportingchildrenwithburns.co.uk We were approached back in April by Dr Jennifer Heath of the Centre for Appearance Research UWE Bristol, who wanted us to develop a support website that was parent focused, peer informed and the first of its kind in the UK. The website was designed and developed as part of Dr Heath’s PhD research to provide a “One stop shop for parents and carers of children with burn injuries”. We knew from the moment we spoke to Dr Heath that this was an incredibly heart-warming cause and unlike anything we had to design in the past. Services Provided: - Full Design & Development of supportingchildrenwithburns.co.uk - Wordpress - Responsive - Custom Forms - Custom Elements - Search Integration - Rich Media Integration - Social Media Integration - Google Analytics - Logo Design - Business card and leaflet/flyer design Please see our full story here: https://yrdesigns.co.uk/2018/10/18/supportchildrenwithburns/
