Horus Media’s Web Design & Development Services
Our chosen web platform is WordPress
Horus Media’s web design department primarily works across the WordPress platform. Being the most popular web platform in the world, it is incredibly helpful when it comes to SEO and on-page optimization. Some agencies out there offer custom web design platforms; these are dependant on that specific agency lasting forever. WordPress allows you lifetime access independent on any agency attachment. Basically ensuring your access to your website forever and a back end website most web-designers can work on.
Responsive Web Design Mobile friendly websites are a must for any business!
A professional website works across a number of different sized screens, It should be just as fast and impressive whether its accessed through a smartphone an IPad or a desktop screen. Designers call it a fluid responsive layout, your site will be able to twist with your upside down smartphone and fill out an expansive desktop display.
People are always on the move, you want your website to be mobile friendly so it can be accessed at any time, anywhere on any device. There is a trend amongst some developers to create separate forms of the same website, one for the small screen and one for the big.
This however disables a few interesting features you website could exhibit. Horus Media’s web development team strive to make very responsive websites, which can be accessed across all devices. Our sites are singular and accessible, always guaranteeing an improved user experience.
Fast loading content
Customers and search engines alike love a website that loads its content quickly and efficiently. It’s very well known that people don’t have patience for slow loading speeds, it displays a lack of professionalism and nobody has time for that. Google estimates that half of all mobile-based website visitors will leave if the page doesn’t load within three seconds. Horus Media uses Google’s Page Speed Insights to ensure the web pages we design load as fast as possible.
High-resolution images and graphics
Everybody loves HD displays, why should it only be utilised when watching a movie. Horus Media designs websites that support high-definition and Retina displays. Some businesses are suited to higher resolution images across their site; visual images can be a useful tool in attracting new customers. Illustrations, Icons and Logos are also designed using SVGs or Scalable Vector Graphics (this basically ensures that these images are rendered without pixilation, and are therefore clearer).
A flawless Content Management System
Due to the popularity of WordPress designed websites, your site will have access to a vast variety of helpful tools. With our expert knowledge of this platform we can ensure your website will have its own unique content management system or CMS for short. Our professional web designers have designed unique add-ons within the WordPress platform and have access to a wide selection of content upload systems. Always endeavouring to help our client’s access and update their own site whenever they want.
