We can design whatever kind of site you need for whatever kind of business you have.

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)

When you spend money on a website you want to know that potential clients can easily find it. That means, ideally you would like your website to show on the first page for a relevant search in a search engine. At Red Swirl Design we make sure that web crawlers can find and index your website successfully without any penalties. We know the damage that can be caused by resorting to short cuts and tricks, so we build our websites with SEO in mind so that all the technical “behind the scenes stuff” is in place. We will research your market to make sure you have quality content with relevant keywords in place that will ensure a good conversion rate so that your business can grow organically.

Standing out in the crowd

Too many people these days pay lots of money developing expensive websites that never get noticed. As more and more businesses rely on internet advertising as their main form of revenue, it’s important that your website will stand out from the crowd. We can give you advice on what would work best for you and create a website and marketing material that suits your business perfectly.

Usability and Accessibility

Every website design is tailor-made to suit the clients' requirements in terms of layout, content, presentation and market objectives – whilst always maintaining strict compliance with web standards with the emphasis being placed on usability and functionality. Usability simply means making things usable to the visitors to the website, taking into account the following key factors

  • Ensuring content can be easily found
  • Making the site highly navigable
  • Keeping download times to a minimum
  • Designing for the target audience
  • Using familiar conventions

We will work with you until we find that happy balance of a professional, memorable and usable design. Please read our testimonials to see what your happy customers have to say.

 

HOW WE WORK

Process

Though each project is different, below is a general outline of the process involved in a typical design project to make sure you are 100% satisfied.

Requirements Analysis

It helps tremendously to learn as much as we can about your business – the goals and objectives you want to achieve, your target audience and your vision and dreams for the company. For that reason, we will work one on one with you to gather the necessary information to get a clear perspective of what your needs are and how you want your company portrayed. We will look at your current products like business cards, marketing material, and website as well as analyse your competitor's marketing material so that we get a full picture of where you are and where you want to be.

Planning

This is where we use all the information we gathered from you to create a sitemap for your website. We will determine what content should be on the site and therefore what pages and subpages you need. From this, we will create a navigational system that is easy to understand for users and gives them access to all the content in a consistent and memorable way. Now we will also decide what technologies should be implemented like contact forms, calendars or content management systems.

Design Conception

At this point, we use all the information gathered so far to create the look and feel of the site. Your target audience and possibly your current marketing materials, for example, your logo and colours will play a major part in this as we want to create a consistent brand for you. We will create the first draft/mockup and present this for review and discussion. It is crucial that we have good communication at this stage so that we work together and exchange ideas until you are happy with the end product.

Creation / Development

Now is where we actually start developing the site. We use the graphics from the design phase and create a functional website. We now need all the content that is going to be on the site. Images, text, graphs, calendar information and much much more. As with anything in life ideas and perceptions are fluid. This means it’s important to keep you involved throughout the process, feeding back progress, ensuring the result is in line with your expectations. To aid in this process we will upload your website to a secure server, or in case of any other material, email it or upload it to a secure FTP site for you to view. We can then discuss any changes or additions that are needed. We will do this as many times as necessary until you are 100% satisfied.

Testing and Delivery

At this stage we test the functionality of the site, making sure forms scripts and plugins work seamlessly on all platforms. This means there will be no compatibility issues and it will work in all major browsers on all different devices. It is crucial that websites work just as well on phones and tablets as on laptops, PCs, and Macs. It is also important to keep in mind that some people might still have older operating systems and slower connections, so download times need to be tested and you have to make provisions for users that can not make use of the latest technologies. After we receive final approval we can deliver the site. We will upload and install the files to your server and test again to make sure everything works correctly. After this, the site will be live for the public to view. This is the official launch of your site!

Review and Support

Once we have designed and developed your site we can also help with website management aspects such as domain name, web hosting, maintenance options and Search Engine Optimization which is a crucial part of having a successful online business.

The bottom line: 100% customer satisfaction is our top priority.
