Improving website experience with interaction

Tuesday, November 19, 2013

The way in which your visitors use and interact with your website plays a critical part in its success. If your webpages are clunky and unresponsive, if they take a long time to load and movement between pages and elements isn’t flowing and intuitive, it won’t be long before your users click away from your site and go somewhere else instead.  Read more

Questioning standard CSS

Monday, November 11, 2013

CSS has transformed the way in which we code websites. In the ‘olden days’, we would have to repeatedly assign the same presentational attributes directly in the HTML, which meant that pages were typically long and cumbersome to maintain. The introduction of Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) eliminated the need for this tedious repetition, avoided extra markup and meant that webmasters could apply rules consistently to a whole site or even a whole group of sites easily and elegantly. Separating content from presentation seemed like a great idea, and with new evolutions of CSS, it is something that most web designers hold very dear.  Read more

Why mobile performance is a must

Tuesday, August 20, 2013

People can be impatient. They don’t much like waiting in queues. They don’t like delays on public transport. And they definitely don’t like slow mobile websites.

With desktop, mobile and social technology developing so rapidly, websites can all too quickly seem clunky and outdated. But whilst it might be tempting to start afresh on a blank page, don’t be too hasty.

Okay, so there might be times when a site is receiving little or no traffic anyway, or is so old that starting again might be the best option, but before you delete anything, you might find that there are more advantages to starting with what you already have.  Read more

Entering unchartered M-commerce waters

Monday, June 24, 2013

M-commerce (or mobile commerce, to give it its full name) is quickly becoming big business. With some predicting that mobile sales will reach $31 billion by 2018, others estimating $86 billion by 2016, and some going as far as $108 billion by 2017 just in US sales alone, no one seems to really know how quickly this market will develop. But regardless of the statistics, what is clear is that mobile commerce is growing, and growing fast.  Read more

How to use HTML5’s responsive element

Sunday, June 02, 2013

Creating adaptive images for the web is frequently a source of frustration and compromise. Web designers often struggle with the choice of using large, high-resolution images scaled down for small devices, or compromising on quality by using lower-resolution images, which look terrible when scaled up for larger monitors.

To solve this problem, the W3C has been exploring the HTML Responsive Images Extension, which makes use of a new <picture> element.   Read more

I gave Richard a very vague brief about how we wanted the general feel for the Harley Wines website and said it'd have to please various parties and that this could lead to a lot of back and forth as we tried to please everyone.While it did lead to a lot of back and forth Richard was patient and helpful throughout, and I never waited long for any response or changes from his end while he had to often wait patiently while I got the green light from various members on my end.

However not once did anyone on my end ask for changes to the style or layout of the website and it's had nothing but praise since it's launch.

Considering we did not have a clear idea of what we needed Richard got the sense of the company and really captured the spirit in a wonderfully laid out and user friendly website. I cannot recommend him highly enough!
