Website Design

User-Centred Design

Our design philosophy is built around the end-user because visitors are the most important factor to consider when developing a website.

Content should be useful as well as easily accessible. We therefore work with our clients and their target audience throughout the development process which provides valuable feedback for creating usable and useful websites.

With the end-user in mind, we aim to create an enjoyable user experience that engages visitors and keeps them coming back.

Our Approach

Information Architecture

Information Architecture (IA) provides a blueprint for website structure and page creation. It concentrates on your target audience to provide information that is organised, useful and quick to find. The result is a website that is easy to navigate, enjoyable to use and flows from page-to-page.

Search Engine Optimisation

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) helps your website achieve a higher ranking within search engine listings. It is crucial to implement a strong SEO strategy during the initial development stages of a website. We employ reliable and future-proof [SEO plans] that focus on strengthening your website’s position in organic search results.

Design and Layout

Web page creation can commence after your content has been organised and your target audience and their needs have been established. Initially we produce visuals such as wireframes to represent where content will appear and how sections will display for all pages of the website. Interaction with our clients and their users is the key to producing an efficient and intuitive [user interface].

Graphics and effects can be drafted and incorporated alongside your existing branding and colour scheme. The final design and layout is a result of changes and editions from client/user feedback and brainstorming/research sessions.

Coding and Development

The pages can be coded with development and integration of any dynamic functionality required (e.g. [ecommerce]). We use Responsive Web Design (RWD) techniques to make sure pages load and display correctly across all devices and web browsers. Before going live, we conduct site-wide testing of all features and functions to make sure everything works the way it should.

Deployment

After the above steps are in place, your website can be uploaded to your server to start receiving visitors. At NuVolution Media, we provide various [hosting packages] for websites using different styles and applications.

Promotion

We have outlined the importance of implementing SEO during the initial design process of a website to provide a platform from which to develop a strong, on-going strategy. We use many methods in our [SEO plans] as well as other [web marketing services] such as link building and [social media management].

Other Website Design Services

Accessible Web Pages

At NuVolution Media we are very keen on web accessibility standards—making the web more usable and accessible to as many people as possible. Accessibility regulations require some sites, by law, to make their content more accessible to those with disabilities. If you need your website to be compliant with these regulations, we can take care of it for you.

Web Code Validation

The benefits of valid web code are: easily maintainable/modifiable pages, more search engine-friendly—giving your site a better chance to rank higher in search engine listings and semantic markup—separating content from layout and aesthetics, giving your website a more professional look and functionality.

CMS Installation & Integration

Content Management Systems make it easier and quicker to update and maintain websites. No technical knowledge is needed which is why having a CMS integrated with your website is an ideal solution for people who have little or no web expertise but want to manage their own site.

Ecommerce Enabled Websites

The majority of online businesses require a system of taking payments directly through their website. NuVolution Media can provide your website with the ability to take online payments. Payment gateway and shopping cart integration are customised into your website.

Web Graphics

Our graphical creations have all types of uses over the web. The most common applications are for use in display images—photographic editing or image creation. We also produce logos, icons and effects for other website elements.
