What's your style?
First impressions count and your website is often your first opportunity to deliver a credible and professional first impression to prospective customers. Deep Blue Media are here to make sure you get this right!
Good design is about making things useable, unobtrusive, aesthetic and easier to understand. Good design just works better whether it’s a website, a brochure or a vacuum cleaner.
The first stage in the website design and development process is to fully understand the needs and goals of a client’s business. This process involves understanding core aims and objectives, analysis of any existing website and sales / marketing materials, reviewing the business plan and understanding the sales pipeline process.
Design is a shared process and we communicate closely with you throughout all stages of the project. After we've discussed and sketched ideas, we design, test, review and improve until it's ready to be built. We will look at competitor websites for insights and ideas we are able to emulate or improve upon and we will look at websites that you like the look and feel of.
We consider many things when building your website, such as: how will a site visitor journey around the website? We design the navigation specifically to encourage potential customers to follow logical paths towards calls to action (CTAs) so that they can purchase a product, download information, sign up for a newsletter, request a meeting, and so on.
With a deep understanding of brands, new media channels and emerging tech, we help brands and innovators harness web technologies to open up new sources of value. Together, we blend the best of both marketing and IT to help our clients tackle some of their toughest business challenges. Where we really shine is in situations where simple, graceful web and mobile experiences can make a big difference in the way our clients do business.
Most of our websites are built using well-known platforms such as WordPress; however we also design bespoke websites from scratch and for clients requiring a less sophisticated and more cost-effective solution, we do use off-the-shelf templates. For eCommerce we prefer to use Shopify or WooCommerce.
As part of the design, we include important on-site SEO elements such as architecture and HTML and we will discuss with your the importance of good quality content, target keywords and social media marketing.
Mobile has quickly become a primary requirement of any organisation’s digital strategy. With over 80% of internet users now owning a smartphone, and more than 50% of internet traffic being driven from mobile devices, it is important that users are afforded a superior digital experience no matter how they’re connecting with you online.
Responsive design is an ideal way of ensuring that your website appears as ‘best-fit’ on many different device types and all solutions that Deep Blue Media provide are fully-responsive.
For clients requiring a CMS, we provide WordPress solutions. We provide training support as required to help clients to understand how to access and operate the backend of the website, so that they are able to update it in future, if they wish to do so.
If not, we can do this for them on an ongoing basis until they have internal resources in place to deliver it themselves.
We are passionate about what we do, that's why our clients love our work! See some of the projects we have worked on recently...
