Our Design Philosophy

Our web-design philosophy is this: an effective website is one that is both quick and easy to use for all viewers.

To this end, websites we construct are user-friendly, professionally produced and technically robust.

What do you know about web design?

We have good understanding of web-design issues, having worked with the Internet in various capacities since 1995, including:

Our background in editorial work ensures that copy check all text on our sites.

Do your websites load quickly?

While there are many factors determining download speed, some of which are outside the designer's control, there are things that can be done. Here's what we do:

Do your websites work on all computers?

These are the steps we take to ensure that as broad an audience as possible can enjoy our websites:

What about search engines?

Websites should be search-engine friendly from the ground up; that is, the design should make the website's content accessible to search engines rather than opaque. We structure the content of our websites logically, making it accessible to the automated web crawlers that search engines send out. This is also why we avoid presenting the content with Flash movie animations, because this makes the content opaque to search engines.

Can I update the website myself?

For larger, more complicated or frequently updated websites, we can build the site using the ExpressionEngine content management system, which allows you to update the site yourself using a series of web-based forms.

What about my other questions?

Just ask. Setting up a website can be a daunting project, which is why we're happy to advise on the various aspects involved - from the cheapest way to register domain names (web addresses), to the various hosting options.

I certainly think the website helped us come across as a creditable group of artists with serious ambitions.
