Fully responsive WordPress website.
We received a brief to completely re-design and develop their website. One of the main goals was to create a gallery that was not only user friendly, but was easy to navigate and use as a sales tool when browsing via a tablet at customer sites. We came up with a way to have a gallery that would allow the user to view all the images of an item with out leaving the main gallery page, this allowed access to multiple images quickly .

Google began promoting mobile friendly websites on 21st April 2015. Websites that are less welcoming/responsive to mobile devices will soon slide down the search rankings. This is now being dubbed Mobilegeddon or Mobilepocalypse.
There will be many who welcome this news with open arms and ridicule those who haven’t made the mobile-friendly investment in their websites. The harsh reality is that there are still many small businesses and online retailers who have failed to see the writing on the wall and will soon be witnessing a dramatic decrease in their traffic.
In our recent blog post, we touched on the importance of having a responsive website, with the growing number of smartphone and tablet users in the UK. Today we look at how that number is affecting emails and the importance of responsive email design.
Email has always been considered a powerful marketing tool. In 2014, it was still well ahead of social media in terms of sales performance. To ensure email marketing continues its success, it has to continue to evolve with other technologies.
Google has announced two upcoming changes that will affect search results when viewed through a mobile device. Starting April 21, mobile search rankings will take into account a site’s mobile friendliness and increase the search rankings of sites already optimised for mobile devices.
Google stated this change will see a ‘significant impact’ on search results for mobiles globally, in an attempt to help users find higher quality content.
The phrase “responsive web design” has been around for a few years now.
During the last decade, the amount of web-enabled devices available to consumers has exploded. With the diverse range of smartphones and tablets on the market and new technologies such as smart TVs and smart watches emerging, Internet browsing has never been more accessible.
The transition from traditional desktops to these new technologies is often forgotten. This is where responsive design comes into play.
In the past, all users would view web content through traditional desktops; these fixed pages had no need to modify themselves for varying screen resolutions. Now that smartphones and tablets are widely used, it is essential for developers to design sites which are compatible with mobile devices. With the current range of technologies offering so many different screen resolutions; websites have to accommodate, so that users can clearly interact with a page. Similar to most professions, web developers have created common practices that are used in the industry. Two of these practices are known as responsive and adaptive design.
