HTML5 and CSS3

CSS3 and HTML5

CSS3 and HTML5

The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) have finally released CSS3 after the 12 year over-haul of CSS2.1. Now, all major browsers are HTML5 compatible and have adopted the new CSS3 features - giving hope to struggling web developers. Combined, these two powerful tools, can create fantastic solutions for modern websites needing to cope with the explosion of differing screen resolutions as the mobile markets come online. Both CSS3 and HTML5 are still not completely 'signed off' and there will be further releases in the future as pockets of 'recommendations' become finalised and ear-marked for general release. An exciting future for sure and a timely response to the many problems facing designers derived from the rapid advancement in mobile technology.

W3C have now modularised CSS and in CSS3 there are currently in excess of 50 modules that we can count - each addressing different subjects of styling and layout. Without doubt, the most important of these modules is 'Media Queries' which quite simply allows website designers to apply conditions to a style sheet to accommodate fluidity.

HTML5 and CSS3 are merely two of many technologies that are evolving and adjusting to the problems presented by the modern internet. Understanding these changes and picking the right solutions (of which there are many) is something that we at Saxon Websites™ do well. All new websites designed by ourselves are built specifically to our clients instructions and will include all of this new technology and lots more besides - we only use current and up to date web technologies.

Focus on Website Graphics

Focus on Website Graphics

Focus on Website Graphics

Most graphic design companies are market-orientated and are set up to provide a number of solutions across a number of different platforms - platforms like posters, business cards, advertising boards and even TV adverts. Saxon Websites™ focuses solely on websites, so, when it comes to graphic design and company logos, we are able to give you just what you want and need – a 10ft, pixel perfect image costing thousands of pounds is what we call ‘over-kill’ in the context of website design.

Focus on Website Graphics

We know that a quality, 800 x 600 high resolution image is as good as you are ever likely to need (in most cases) – and we don’t need a team to produce it either … all we need is a skilled web designer that knows his way around Photoshop. The benefits of trading solely in website graphic design is that we also understand about loading times, penalties handed out by some search engines for non-optimised images and image security techniques … amongst other things.

Logos and Graphic Design, Free!

There are many, many companies that provide logos and graphic design services but it’s just another invoice that you can expect in the post if you use them without really needing to use them. In most cases, our clients are happy to use our integrated logo and graphic design services, included free as part of the overall web development service that we provide. To be honest, there is very little that we can’t do that a specialist company can – but we are ‘man-enough’ to let you know when we can’t provide what you require and professional enough to point you in the direction of someone that can. Logos and Graphic Design are services that we provide for free here at Saxon Websites™.

Corporate imaging - getting started

Corporate imaging – getting started

Corporate imaging – getting started

So how do we start getting your company onto the ladder leading towards gaining a corporate identity or achieving a corporate image? Well, we incorporate your ideas and designs into a ‘style-sheet’ and apply it to the website that we are building for you. It means that things like fonts, colour schemes and layout can be managed dynamically and helps to deliver your message more consistently. We then carefully look at your companies interaction with the customer and ensure that your forms, news-letters and down-loadable material all enforce that very same message.

Corporate imaging - getting started

We will advise you every step of the way armed with years of experience. One such example may be the use of a particular font or colour – although the one you have chosen is great … it may not be installed on client machines as standard and will probably, in a lot of cases, be replaced with a less effective alternative. In this instance, we will point this out and advise a different solution. This is a simple example agreed, but can make a big difference to your chances of success if over-looked.

Creating a corporate image begins with your website

Creating a corporate image begins with your website

Creating a corporate image begins with your website

Lets make it clear, the world of corporate imaging is massive and we are not experts in the peripheral arenas such as branded goods or tradeshow marketing, both of which are part of the bigger picture … but we can get your website, your forms your newsletters all singing in unison and from the same song-sheet. This, after all, is likely to be where your first contact with the customer occurs and it is important that the process begins here.

Creating a corporate image begins with your website

Once you get your company associated with a given product or service – the marketing benefits associated with your new corporate identity become real and once capitalised upon could transform your business overnight. Two letters, the letter ‘F’ and ‘B’ placed together in a certain font and in a certain colour takes on a completely different meaning – corporate imaging is without doubt something that you should be taking into account when considering launching your new website. Saxon Websites™ has the experience and can get you on track from the very onset of your journey to the top of the tree.
