Designing for the Web

   Designing for the Web

Putting pixels online

GRID Associates web design & development team consistently deliver high-quality websites that do exactly what they are meant to do with no fuss, minimal anxiety and absolutely NO tantrums. Web design really doesn’t need to be difficult, so we always try to make it as painless as possible.

Our team are well-versed with current coding techniques that ensure the delivery of sturdy and dependable web sites that fall into four categories, these are:

Static Websites

Static website consists of a number web pages with fixed content. This means that each page displays the same information to every visitor. Static website pages contain fixed HTML code and the content of each page does not change unless manually updated by the designer or webmaster.

Static sites are the most basic type of website and are built by creating a few HTML pages and uploading these to a web server. This can work well for smaller websites or sites with a short life span and few content updates. However, for larger websites or ones where content is updated regularly, a dynamic website with a content management system would be the preferred choice. Read more

Content Managed Websites

What is a Content Management System? Content Management System (CMS) – is a computer program or software that allows editing, publishing, and modification of content on different online platforms in an all-inclusive and convenient interface. A CMS also helps in the management of blogs, websites, social media platforms.

When considering a website redesign, one of the most important components for many organisations is the ability to edit, update or otherwise maintain the new site in-house. Referred to as content management systems, or CMS, these solutions are cost-effective, scalable and easy to use – even for website administrators with no knowledge of website coding. Each contains a WYSIWYG editor (“what you see is what you get”) specifically for this reason.

eCommerce Websites

The term eCommerce often scares business owners away as the assume the cost to set-up a working site is too large for their budget, this doesn’t need to be the case. Not all eCommerce websites require vast amounts of funding to set-up, for example, if your service offering is a single product you could operate from a single page website which will require far less funding than a site that sells tens of thousands of products with online postage solutions, order tracking and stock management.

The processes involved in building larger eCommerce platforms can be a little bit more complicated, but not impossible. Your requirement for a higher specification solutions (i.e. servers and security) would certainly increase, as would your need for a well designed site with excellent social media capabilities. The time required to integrate your products within the sites database is a factor that should also be considered.
