Design of websites is a very important aspect of your online presence as a company of an individual. It conveys style, intent, quality, reliability as well as enabling visitors to effectively access the information that they are looking for. Given that visitors usually very quickly make up their minds whether a page is relevant or not, it is very important to make an immediate and lasting impression. With hundreds of potential search queries to look through, good design is essential to securing new business or publicising your company or cause.
Reetpetite.org.uk produces its own designs, but also partners with Mike Stonelake Design & Illustration for highly professional graphic design solutions. Please browse the portfolio for examples of jobs we have undertaken.
Producing static web pages is something, thanks to easily available programs, that anyone can do. However, producing dynamic pages, which access information which is constantly being changed requires a little bit more know-how. If your website requires information from a database, or from RSS/ATOM feeds, or to produce feeds, or you would like to be able to easily change the content of your pages without messing around with HTML and uploading via FTP, then maybe a Content Management System would work for you.
Many of the websites we produce use PHP code and MySQL databases which are used on almost all hosting servers, but I am also familiar with other languages and databases.
PHP is useful for implementing a corporate design template whereby site-wide design changes can be very easily made by updating only one or two individual files. A good website solution enables future changes to the website to be made as quickly as possible, without the need to start from scratch every time.
