EVERY BUSINESS NEEDS AN ONLINE PRESENCE
Whether you’re a business start-up, a small business looking to grow your customer base, or a larger company wanting to improve your online presence FTD can help you with a high quality website design. A website is your shop window for the 21st Century – it communicates with your customers on a global level. It communicates so much more than what you sell or do, it communicates on an emotional level. The web design communicates who you are, where your brand is placed in terms of cost (are you budget or luxury) and ultimately how you see yourself as an organisation.
Our remit for web design always begins with a consultation. We figure out who you are, or sometimes who you want to be and then we set about creating the best possible web design solution to meet those requirements. A deep understanding of what the website has to convey is key in creating a web design that you the client are happy with but that also works in commercial terms.
As the foundation of any online business strategy, all companies need a web design that is user-friendly, looks professional and delivers measurable results.
Our web design process is broken into three stages: content, design and build. This ensures our clients are 100% happy at each stage of the project’s process, which means the finished website turns out just as agreed.
RESPONSIVE WEB DESIGN
Google’s* figures show that 75% of all website visitors prefer a mobile-friendly site and, when they have visited a mobile-friendly site, 74% of people say they’re more likely to return to that site in future. And 67% of people say when they visit a mobile-friendly site they are more likely to buy a product or service.
Responsive Web design is an approach to design and development that states that a website should respond to the user’s behaviour and environment based on screen size, platform and orientation. As the user switches from their laptop to iPad, the website automatically switches to accommodate for resolution and image size etc. In other words, the website should have the technology to automatically respond to the user’s preferences.
Because of this at FTD we only design responsive websites.
Your site no longer sits on someone’s desk… it needs to work everywhere and on every device.
