Busy again with another web launch - this time for a Liverpool recruitment agency start-up - Apple Services NW. For the last two years I've gone down the RWD route for all web development projects - that's Responsive Web Design - if you're unsure. Basically it means that sites respond automatically to different screen sizes, so work well on iPhones, tablets and laptops. The site is built on a grid structure and with a fluid structure we can display everything or be really specific and hide elements for smaller screens.
This means we no longer have to design for each new gadget that appears on the market and makes future-proofing possible, even for the most basic of sites. In addition the client required the ability to add jobs to the site themselves and using Wordpress as the CMS made everything very straight-forward. It's interface is clean and simple and after a little training we had live vacancies on the site.
Business owner Sara, was kind enough to send me over a testimonial;
“As a new business I was wanted a website that was user friendly and reflected the personality of the business. I am delighted with my website and the feedback I have had about the website has been wonderful, I feel this is due to the fact that David listened to what I wanted and took time to understand my business. David is professional, helpful and nothing was too much trouble. I would definitely recommend his services”
Edit January 2016 - this business has had a name change to Apple Services NW - fairly straight forward re-brand for the website
So if you thinking of a site refresh, or turning an existing site into a responsive thing of beauty - I'm your guy - give me a call.
I always spend a little time each year in January checking my SEO metrics and potential impacts on search engine rankings for my site. And thought this year I would highlight the five most popular blogs last year in 2019. Not all of them are new, infact a few are quite old but they hit a spot and keep getting impressions and all important clicks. Read more...
"As a new business, it was very important to me to get the right publicity photographs for my marketing materials. When I met David, he listened carefully to what I was trying to achieve with my brand, and then produced fabulous photographs that were exactly what I needed. He was extremely professional throughout but also nice and friendly. Myself and my clients found it easy to relax with him, which was essential to create the right vibe for the shoot. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone."
