The team at Serene Media know their work inside and out, stay ahead of market influences and evolving trends and most impressively they actually take the time to share their insights with us so that we can really appreciate the impact they are making on our business. Having gone from page 7 to page 2 in a Google search in just under a month is an achievement I didn't think we would see. We couldn't recommend Serene Media more strongly. Thanks team! More...

These guys know their stuff. I was looking at 2 different companies, however Serene Media blew the others out of the water with their thorough investigation of my website and social media outlets. They gave me huge insights as to how we could optimise the site and the social media channels. Can't recommend them highly enough. More...

Q&As

Websites that are not well designed tend to perform poorly and have sub-optimal Google Analytics metrics (e.g. high bounce rates, low time on site, low pages per visit and low conversions). So what makes good web design? Below we explore the top 10 web design principles that will make your website aesthetically pleasing, easy to use, engaging, and effective.

1. PURPOSE
Good web design always caters to the needs of the user. Are your web visitors looking for information, entertainment, some type of interaction, or to transact with your business? Each page of your website needs to have a clear purpose, and to fulfill a specific need for your website users in the most effective way possible.

2. COMMUNICATION
People on the web tend to want information quickly, so it is important to communicate clearly, and make your information easy to read and digest. Some effective tactics to include in your web design include: organising information using headlines and sub headlines, using bullet points instead of long windy sentences, and cutting the waffle.

3. TYPEFACES
In general, Sans Serif fonts such as Arial and Verdana are easier to read online (Sans Serif fonts are contemporary looking fonts without decorative finishes). The ideal font size for reading easily online is 16px and stick to a maximum of 3 typefaces in a maximum of 3 point sizes to keep your design streamlined.

4. COLOURS
A well thought out colour palette can go a long way to enhance the user experience. Complementary colours create balance and harmony. Using contrasting colours for the text and background will make reading easier on the eye. Vibrant colours create emotion and should be used sparingly (e.g. for buttons and call to actions). Last but not least, white space/ negative space is very effective at giving your website a modern and uncluttered look.

5. IMAGES
A picture can speak a thousand words, and choosing the right images for your website can help with brand positioning and connecting with your target audience. If you don’t have high quality professional photos on hand, consider purchasing stock photos to lift the look of your website. Also consider using infographics, videos and graphics as these can be much more effective at communicating than even the most well written piece of text.

6. NAVIGATION
Navigation is about how easy it is for people to take action and move around your website. Some tactics for effective navigation include a logical page hierarchy, using bread crumbs, designing clickable buttons, and following the ‘three click rule’ which means users will be able to find the information they are looking for within three clicks.

7. GRID BASED LAYOUTS
Placing content randomly on your web page can end up with a haphazard appearance that is messy. Grid based layouts arrange content into sections, columns and boxes that line up and feel balanced, which leads to a better looking website design.

8. “F” PATTERN DESIGN
Eye tracking studies have identified that people scan computer screens in an “F” pattern. Most of what people see is in the top and left of the screen and the right side of the screen is rarely seen. Rather than trying to force the viewer’s visual flow, effectively designed websites will work with a reader’s natural behaviour and display information in order of importance (left to right, and top to bottom).

9. LOAD TIME
Everybody hates a website that takes ages to load. Tips to make page load times more effective include optimising image sizes (size and scale), combining code into a central CSS or JavaScript file (this reduces HTTP requests) and minify HTML, CSS, JavaScript (compressed to speed up their load time).

10: MOBILE FRIENDLY
It is now commonplace to access websites from multiple devices with multiple screen sizes, so it is important to consider if your website is mobile friendly. If your website is not mobile friendly, you can either rebuild it in a responsive layout (this means your website will adjust to different screen widths) or you can build a dedicated mobile site (a separate website optimised specifically for mobile users).

Mobile Friendly Web Design

It is easy to create a beautiful and functional website, simply by keeping these design elements in mind. Have you got a website design that needs reviewing or optimising? Or perhaps, you are planning a website and you are looking to get the design right from the ground up. Either way, these principles of effective web design can help your website be more engaging, useful, and memorable for visitors.

It's important to think about your goals and aims when discussing SEO. All too often, it's easy to get side-tracked into thinking about specific keywords, rather than looking at the bigger picture. We will ask about your ideal clientele and what you think they are looking for. More traffic is good, more highly relevant traffic is much better.

Achieving tangible results for clients that actually make a difference to their sales or goals. The power of Google is great, but only if you're in the top half of the first page. Once there, the difference it can make to your business is quite incredible.

We have other online businesses and became fed up with the way we were treated by Digital & SEO agencies. Over-promising and under-delivering seemed to be the norm so we set about learning how to do it ourselves.

Once we started achieving results, word spread amongst friends and we were asked to provide a service for others, and our agency was born!

We know what it's like to be a client, we own some online ecommerce stores. We're not content with just gaining clients, we want results for our clients.

Everything we do has been tried and tested on one of our own websites before being rolled out to clients. We only do work on your site we'd be happy to have on our own.

Give us a call or arrange a date and we'll come and meet you to discuss your aims and goals for your website.
