What is web design?
Web design is sort of a vague term. What is “design”, exactly? Does it refer exclusively to how a website looks? Turns out, there’s more to it than that. Let’s define this phrase more clearly.
Specifically, web design refers to the planning, creation, and maintaining of a website. This includes, but is not limited to, graphic and interface design, coding the frontend software that the user interacts with, and search engine optimization.
Website design involves not only to the visual aspects of a site, but also more abstract concepts like usability, ergonomics, layout traditions, user habits, navigation logic and other things that help visitors find information faster. Remember that internet users are prone to distraction and if they can’t find what they’re looking for fast, they will leave your site and look somewhere else. You can keep these fickle users on your site with effective web development and good design.
Responsive Site Design
Allure will provide your business with a responsive site design that adapts to mobile devices. More and more users are visiting sites on their mobile devices, but there are many sites out there that display the same on a phone as they would on a computer with a 17” screen. This can be frustrating for users, as they have to zoom in and out and pan around like they’re reading a Where’s Waldo book just to find what they’re looking for.
You don’t need to create an entire new website for mobile use. Instead, make a responsive website for your business, one that automatically makes text larger and easier to read on a smaller screen. Responsive websites also make buttons easier to press since the difference between mouse and touchscreen control is quite large. Sometimes, responsive websites, when shrunken down to fit a phone, feature entirely different sets of content and color schemes than their large screen counterparts in order to look better in a tight space.
Mobile development and responsive website building is one of Allure’s specialties. We will keep your website just as sharp and easy to navigate on a phone as it is on a laptop.
WordPress Bootstrap Templates
WordPress is a free, open source blogging tool that has been around since 2003. It’s by far the most popular way to blog on the internet, with 22% of the world’s top 10 million websites and 60 million blogs total using WordPress.
Turns out, there is good reason why WordPress is so popular. It’s easy to use, allowing businesses to make changes to their site without extensive knowledge of HTML. You’ll also get a boost to your search engine ranking just by using WordPress, because the underlying code behind a WordPress blog is simple and easy for search engines to read and index.
Yet another benefit of WordPress is that it allows developers, including the skilled techies at Allure, to use the Bootstrap framework when designing a website template. This aids in making your website more responsive when making the switch from traditional computer to mobile device. Bootstrap templates also save developers time and allow a greater level of customization when designing your company website.
