WEB DESIGN

If you're a small to medium sized business or start up (unless you require specific functionality tailored to your needs e.g CRM integration) then the likelihood you need bespoke web design is slim. Just look at this site ;) I take fully customisable templates and strip them back. I then rebuild the site from scratch (in half the time) after consultation on what you need from a website; customising with code where the template gives limitations. This will save you a fortune on unnecessary web development charges. Full SEO checks and fully responsive web design for mobile & tablet browsing.

App Design

How can an app benefit you brand?

  • Apps allow you to be visible to your customers at all times
  • They allow you to create a direct marketing channel
  • They build on brand recognition and aid in consumer engagement
  • Who out of your competition has one? Probably none

We now offer TWO routes for app design to suit your budget!

Traditional Mobile App Design

The traditional mobile app works across all platforms and will be built with the latest modern technologies to ensure great User Experience. 

The front-end would be built with React Native + Redux. React Native is Facebook's mobile version of their popular Javascript library React.js, which is great for building fast and efficient websites/apps with a high-end user experience. It has been used to build popular mobile apps by companies such as Instagram, Facebook, and Airbnb.

The back-end would be built using Amazon Web Services, a highly scalable infrastructure that only charges you for what you use, so you don't end up overpaying for hosting services. As your business grows, so will the resources, to ensure you don't hit memory limits and have 0% downtime. This can all be managed in a billing dashboard with alerts to avoid bill shock.

The downside of taking the traditional mobile app path is that you will have two sources to administrate and maintain (website & mobile app), this can lead to inconsistencies across the two and higher support costs. The upside is that it can have a more of a native app feel to it.


Progressive Web App Design

PWAs are suggested by some as the replacement for mobile apps. You build one application that becomes both your website and your mobile app. PWAs also have great features such as the ability to work offline, easier to update than native apps and can be shared via a URL without complex installation procedures.

The front-end would be built with React + Redux without the need to use a mobile library such as React Native. 

The back-end would be the same as the traditional mobile app.

The upside to a PWA is you'll be able to manage all of your apps in one place (products, purchases, customers etc.) Receive reports on your whole network of customers on all platforms and also lower support costs.

By 2020 6.1 billion people will use smartphones leading to an even heavier dependence on apps in everyday life! They're not just for the big brands anymore
