Having a good website design is what people want from a web designer, But there is some considerations that you as a business owner should know.
UX User Experience is highly important in designing a website so that your visitors can explore your website with ease of navigation, we put an emphasis on creating beautiful looking functional websites.
Having a very slick looking website is great for customer wow factor you want your visitor to come to your website and be looking at it like wow this is a nice site. Often the focus is placed on making a beautiful website design thats navigation just sucks, the buttons are too small, words are crammed into boxes and important pages are hidden under several other pages because they didn’t look pretty on the home page. It shouldn’t be like that the design and UX should work in harmony allowing for a visually pleasing and easy to navigate website.
Thats what we do!
We also design with search engines in mind, Search engines have become the gateway to finding and attracting more visitor’s while not sacrificing readability for computers over humans we find that balance that works for both.
We design fully responsive websites that scales to accommodate any screen size, from a narrow smartphone to a large screen.
No matter it’s logo design, banner, websites or anything else, creativity is always considered as one of our top elements the ability to think out side the box and not be that cardboard cut out website design company that uses template themes and the exact same design for every client (Yes! companies do that).
We aim to provide user friendly interface with flexible options to manage, which in turn gives easy customisation for any part you need and we can educate your allocated webmaster how to make changes so you do not depend on us when the website has been handed over making you self sufficient to control your website.
WHAT WE CAN DO
We can build any type or size website you require, from small business websites to online stores where you can sell your own products.
First of all, you’ve got a huge number of people looking for your services in the search engines. Using different terms, or keywords, they are looking for someone or something that will solver their problem. You definitely are losing a lot of business to your competitors if you aren’t on the first page of Google.
We have research tools that help us understand just how much business that is, and when we work with companies that need search engine optimisation, we often begin with looking for just how many people are on the internet searching for what that company provides.
With that knowledge, the business owners we work with have hard data about how much new business our SEO is likely to bring into their company used with our built for search website design your business can have the advantage.
I guess I should talk a little about what search engine optimisation actually is. Essentially it is a pretty descriptive term. Taking all the things that the search engines look for to determine their rankings and optimising those factors. It includes your content, technical factors on your website and how many and what type of “votes” or links you are getting from outside sources.
Having a website design that is current and built focused on your needs and optimal performance is you putting your best sales person out on the street entry of your business building they are there looking good greeting everyone and providing instructions to those who are seeking directions about your services and where to go and on what floor, Does that make sense?
Often websites become outdated or businesses outgrow their websites, This can be like having the cleaner out the front of your building answering the questions and giving directions no disrespect to cleaners but they are not the best suited to be giving up to date and business focused advice they may know the layout of the building but not the way everything operates.
Your website design should include easy to navigate headings, Clean clear images, informative educational content and functional relative internal linking.
A good design must move with the user, providing them navigational assistance from point A to point B. Solid UX does this with ease, the actual design feels natural and not forced. We have studied online behaviour and understand how elements on a web page draw the eye, the colours that attract the eye and what shapes make you want to click them.
We covered the basics of UX here on linkedIn

The update runs on the factors of real time on a page by page basis but the big change is that page load speed signals, If you have a sluggish site load time its safe to say you have taken a hit in rankings and with google love.
Responsiveness of websites is something that needs to be considered moving forward, If your visitor is viewing on desktop, or Ipad or various phone screen sizes, You need to ask your self what does your website look like on each of those devices and you can build this into your website design at the planning stage.

AMP: Accelerated Mobile Pages
What Is AMP You Say?
October 2015, Google announced Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP), a framework for creating fast-loading mobile web pages on the mobile device. The open-source initiative was designed for publishers to make mobile sites conversions without compromising on UX or mechanics. Read our blog post here.
This new AMP method of display allows optimisations to be easily achieved without altering the primary mobile device browsing web experience.
There is an exciting promise of what may be in store for the future of googles planning behind the curtains.
You Might Ask How Does AMP Work?
This is a framework for creating mobile web pages, AMP consists of three basic parts:
- AMP HTML: A subset of HTML, this markup language has some custom tags and properties and many restrictions. But if you are familiar with regular HTML, you should not have difficulty adapting existing pages to AMP HTML. For more details on how it differs from basic HTML, check out AMP Project’s list of required markup that your AMP HTML pages must have to be compliant with the update.
- AMP CDN: An optional Content Delivery Network, it will take your AMP-enabled pages, cache them and automatically make some performance optimisations.
How Will You Apply AMP To Your Site?
For starters, you will have to maintain at least two versions of any article page: The original version of your article page that users will typically see, and the AMP version of that page.
It is also likely that you will have to rewrite your site template to accommodate the restrictions. For example, all CSS in AMP must be in-line and be less than 50KB. Due to loading-intensiveness of custom fonts, they must be loaded using a special amp-font extension, in order to better control that loading.
Multimedia must be handled specially. An example is , images need to utilise the custom amp-img element and must include an explicit width and height. (When converting a legacy website to an AMP template, this can be a major pain if the width and height attributes aren’t already being used).
Like images, there is a custom tag that must be used to embed locally hosted videos via HTML5, called amp-video. For embedding YouTube video, however — which the majority of web videos are — there is a separate extended component,
There is support for some features like social media platform embeds and the extended parts of those integrations. Support is limited for some other applications such as slideshows via amp-carousel and image lightboxes via amp-image-lightbox, as well social media embeds for Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest and Vine via their own extended components.

WordPress Website Design
We prefer WordPress as a content management system over others because of ease of use, supported features and just how much it can do out of the box. The most popular Website platform in the world is yours.
Why Use WordPress for Websites?
We really like WordPress as a CMS or content management system. The reason we love using WordPress for our website recommendations is purely the functionality of the CMS. The platform comes with a very large repository of plugins. Plugins add and increase the functionality of the theme and the website functions. The right plugin used with your website can create a very powerful marketing platform for your business.
Using WordPress for Website Design
A CMS, or content management system, is a tool that allows you manage the content of your website independently. WordPress is flexible, highly customisable, super user-friendly, and is a great content management system (CMS). You can use it for blogs, small business websites, and even e-commerce.
We have highly skilled developers that can bring your site up to date and add that custom touch you always wanted.
Taking Website Themes and Making Something Beautiful
Every website starts out with a centralised “Theme” and then is developed towards a design that can be built by adding parts of a sliced PSD design format. Developing custom themes and websites is an expensive project and we recommend Be Media for custom website builds.
For Websites that can be built from themes we can then develop these sites into your new website using an already coded foundation of basic functions that help remove the need to code in 50+ hours of manual coding. This gives a really good starting ground for building the website and more importantly cuts down production time from months to weeks.
We have helped WordPress ecommerce store owners, local business, bloggers and website owners enhance the visibility of their website or blog in Search Engines like Google.

Word of warning! This is not a cheap service, so please be aware if you want custom work you will be paying custom pricing.
While customising the WordPress theme to your specs, we take every process to make it work across platforms as best we can. Responsive design is the who and the now of web design.
