Design is such a broad term. To most people it means the “look and feel” of a website. How the page is laid out and whether the colours match the company logo. The truth of the matter is a great website starts with a well designed information structure.
At SUGAR we start the process of building a website with these kinds of questions. We try to get under the skin of your business and find the best way to represent your services and products online.
How do you explain what you do to a potential customer? Is it easy for a site visitor to find the product they are interested in? At SUGAR we start the process of building a website with these kinds of questions. We try to get under the skin of your business and find the best way to represent your services and products online.
This initial research will allow us to draw up a Site Plan that represents the site structure and main navigation. From this document we move onto the fun part – visuals!
A visual is a flat graphic that looks like a completed page in the website. During the design stage of the project these visuals enable us to experiment with different layout ideas and designs. Once this work is completed we will have a “look and feel” that fits your business needs.
Once a design is settled on the hard work begins. At SUGAR all sites are built using the latest web technologies and layout techniques. Our sites are built to meet the latest W3C guidelines for accessibility. We employ the latest CSS layout techniques that help to separate styles from content.
Any programming work we carry out will be based on the LAMP Open Source platform with databases built in MySQL and code written in PHP.
