Designworks' screen

We’ve kicked the New Year off in style with a new website.

The old site served us well but as screens have got wider and technology has advanced we felt it was time for a redesign. The new design makes full use of the wide screen and uses an alternative web page font to create an interesting and impactful typeface. The Home and Portfolio pages feature scrolling imagery which gives us the option of showing several examples of our work.

The new site is a bespoke design that has been built in WordPress – a user-friendly Content Management System. Although there are WordPress templates available, we create bespoke designs for all our WordPress sites. We believe, having a unique site that reflects the company’s branding is essential and that using a template would compromise this.

Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Google+ have all been incorporated in the site. Social Media is an important communication channel which is why the buttons are in such a prominent position on each page.

The ability to comment on News items and add Testimonialsare nice features in WordPress and provide an interactive feel to the site.

If you want to make an impact in 2012 with a website that you can manage then we’d be happy to help. Also, if you have any feedback on the site then we’d love to hear from you.
