Make the most out of your website

Responsive design

The way that we browse the internet is continually changing. Smartphones and tablets are commonplace. In fact, more than half of our time spent online is on a mobile device. Your Bristol based web designer will be able to create a design that can adapt to both desktop and mobile. In this way, you can be confident that your website visitors will have the very best user experience, no matter what device or browser they use.

Manage your content

You no longer need to be able to design or code to make changes to your website. Modern websites use content management systems to allow you to make changes with ease. If you prefer a certain CMS like Wordpress, let us know and we’ll include this when getting your quotes. Your freelancer or agency will also be able to recommend a CMS depending on your goals for the site.

Functional UX/UI

UX/UI stands for user experience and user interface. In short, it’s the way in which someone interacts with your website, and the experience they have of it. A professional designer will be able to use best practices to make sure that your visitors have a seamless experience on your site. They may design using Adobe’s suite of tools, or directly on a platform such as Shopify or SquareSpace. If you have an existing website, your designer may require access to analytics. Data from platforms like Google Analytics or Hotjar can be incredibly useful for a UX/UI designer.

What type of websites do you create?

We have a large team to call upon, so we get involved in all types of websites. We’re very competitive on bespoke brochure websites but also have the ability to call in specialist teams for larger e-commerce sites. Finally, we have created a number of software platforms for our clients, which combine incredible UX with complex back end systems. We do it all!

Do you have a particular design style?

That’s the beauty of our business model. We take the time to understand what our clients are trying to achieve. If they have existing brand guidelines then great, if they don’t, it’s not a problem. We then look at the resources available and match the best designer with the client. Having said that, we do like to push the boundaries of design. It’s our job to create beautiful, engaging websites that convert visitors into customers.

Do you offer any other services?

Yes we do! We have a team of digital marketing specialists that are often part of the website project right from the start. Websites sit at the heart of a lot of marketing strategies, so it’s really important that we take this into account from the beginning of the project. We can start to prepare campaigns prior to the website going live, or start our campaigns once the site is up and running.

How do you like to work with clients?

We’ve tested lots of different project management methods and systems during our time. Over the past few years, we have settled on a central project management system which deals with the majority of communication. It provides visibility for all stakeholders in the project and a place for design files, Invision links, and any other collateral to be stored. We love to regularly meet our clients in our Bristol studio. However, video calls have gotten so good over the years that we have clients that we’ve never met face to face. It really depends on the complexity of the project, the number of people involved, and their location. We’re all about flexibility.

How much does web design cost? This is something that can be incredibly difficult to put a figure on due to the nature of the service. There are also differences based on whether you are looking to work with a freelancer or a web design agency, and also whether you need a large, complicated site or something more simple.

We can help you to connect with the right designer to suit your needs. A clear idea of what you need, and how many pages and features are required, will be influential when it comes to pricing. This will help you to get an accurate quote for web design.

These two terms may seem like they are used interchangeably but they are two different things. A designer will be focused on the visual and creating a UI to suit the user, whereas a web developer is usually focused on the actual core of the website, making it function and using coding to enable it to do what it is supposed to.

When working with a web designer, if you want the whole package of a fully finished and functioning website, check that this is something they can offer before you employ their services. Make sure you have understood if they are offering web design or development, or both.

  • Responsive - A responsive web page design means that the site is viewable on a number of devices. The design automatically sizes to the screen and the designer doesn’t need to make formats for different devices and desktops.

  • Liquid or Fluid - This is a style of design that will shrink or stretch to the shape of the browser, and the page will look enlarged or shrunk, rather than items being rearranged. The size of the items in the design alter in relation to one another depending on the browser being used.

  • Fixed design - Fixed pages do not alter according to the browser automatically. On some devices such as tablets this can make it harder to see the content as you need to scroll around the page or pinch the screen in order to zoom in on sections. Though it is sometimes essential, fixed design is becoming less common.

Whether you are working with a freelancer or a big agency, they will have a portfolio for you to view. This allows you to see other, similar projects they have worked on and decide if they have the skills you need.

There are a number of web design certifications and they may be happy to share any they have attained, but there isn’t one standardized industry body.

If you are worried about a designer’s credentials you can also check their feedback from other clients, which you can view on their Bark profile.

Should you work with a freelancer or an agency? This is one of the decisions you need to make when looking to plan a web design project.

Working with a freelance Web Designer
This may be an option that can save you money. Freelancers are often able to charge less as they don’t have the same overheads as an agency.

Working with a Web Design agency
Web design agencies may have a bigger set of skills to draw upon than a freelancer as they will usually have a number of staff and designers working for them. They may also be able to show you a bigger portfolio, but you can expect to pay more when using an agency.
