Development

All our websites are elegantly designed, easy to navigate, always built with your specific objectives in mind, and are deployed with basic search engine optimisation as standard. They are developed using standards-compliant CSS/XHTML, and tested in all major browsers to ensure they will always appear the same. We believe in developing cost-effective online solutions which not only look visually impressive but really work. Research shows that you have only a matter of seconds to grab a users attention, and indeed users cannot find the information they are looking for on websites around 60% of the time. This is why a clutter-free, easy-to-use navigation system is vital to guide people through the information heirarchy of your website.

Once a mockup/wireframe prototype for your website has been decided on, the domain name and hosting will be purchased and we will start to develop your website, uploading as we go along. This allows you to see your website being developed and gives you the chance to alert us to any changes you'd like to make if/as they occur to you.

   Time Scale
Again, this varies with each website. As a rough guide, for a basic site, we could get you up and running within a week. For a more average website, with several content-rich pages, you should allow 2-3 weeks for development. For larger websites, especially with CMS's and/or custom applications, you should allow upwards of a month. We will give you a rough estimate of development time and cost in the initial consultation. All estimates regarding time assume that the customer has provided us with all the necessary information and/or will provide us with such information promptly if required.
   Custom Applications
Inigo Web Design also specialise in custom web applications and content mangement systems, mostly developed using PHP and Javascript. Whether it's file management and storage, interactive forms for customers, calenders or post-code calculators, we have the solution for you! With the latest technology, platforms and software packages, there really isn't much we can't do!
   SEO
One Trillion Pages. One Billion People.
That's a big haystack, and one that's constantly moving. Search engines help people to find what they're looking for, and in the last decade a new area of expertise has evolved around manipulating search engines, better known as Search Engine Optimisation (SEO). A well designed and easy-to-navigate website is great but is pretty much nullified when no one can find it, and so with the increasing use of Search Engines comes the increasing importance of SEO. Did you know that google accounts for over 7% of all internet traffic? To achieve good rankings in search engines, many things must be taken into consideration; most importantly website structure, content and links. It's also a continual process as new and existing competitors vie for limited top positions in the rankings.
