Why web design matters
A stellar website design is paramount to any successful online presence. Your website is often one of the first impressions a potential customer will have of your brand, so you need to not only look great but be easy to navigate as well.
The main principles of web design can benefit any organisation and help with building their web presence. From incorporating branding into your website design to accessibility, we know everything you need to know about designing a great website for your business.
The core principles of effective web design
Website design is more than just making a site look good. There are several key components that make up a well-designed website. By incorporating these principles into your website design, you can create a site that is not only visually appealing but also easy to use and navigate.
1. Branding - Your website should be an extension of your brand identity. Whether you are a large corporation with established brand guidelines or a small business just starting out, incorporating your branding into your website design is essential. This includes using the same fonts, colours and imagery across all elements of your site to create a unified look and feel.
2. Usability - In order for users to easily navigate your website and find the information they are looking for your site must be well organised and easy to use. This includes having a clear hierarchy, using simple and consistent navigation, and using clear and concise copy.
3. Responsive design - With the majority of internet users now accessing the web from mobile devices, it is more important than ever to have a responsive website design. This means that your site will automatically adjust to fit any screen size, ensuring that users have a positive experience no matter how they are accessing your site.
4. Accessibility - Making your website accessible to as many people as possible is not only the right thing to do, but it can also give you a competitive advantage. By incorporating accessibility features into your website design, you can make your site usable by a wider range of people, including those with disabilities.

Building accessibility and inclusivity into websites
Accessibility refers how easy it is for users to navigate and use your website, regardless of their ability or circumstance. This includes people with disabilities, those using mobile devices, and those with slow internet connections.
Inclusivity is about making sure that everyone feels welcome and included on your website. This includes people of all genders, races, ethnicities, and sexual orientations.
Building accessibility and inclusivity into your website design is not only the right thing to do, but it can also give you a competitive advantage. A website that offers great accessibility and inclusivity is often viewed as more professional and trustworthy, which can result in higher engagement and conversion rates.
Our approach means that we take into consideration the needs of all users when designing and developing your website. This includes incorporating accessibility features such as alt text for images and closed captions for videos, as well as incorporating inclusive design elements such as gender-neutral language and accessible UI components.
If you want to create a website that truly reflects your values, consider building accessibility and inclusivity into your design. Our team can help you incorporate these features into your site, ensuring that everyone can use.
