Great web design inspires happy customers and can increase sales, sign-ups, enquiries and social shares.
Jamie Lewis Design specialise in designing beautiful graphical, innovative, intuitive and user-friendly websites – whether it’s a simple portfolio website, a fully illustrated one-page scrolling site, a brochure site with an integrated blog, a content managed site (CMS), an online shop or a complex data-led application.
It’s always best to test your site on real users as they may spot the finer details that can only come through real-world interaction, and help identify any stumbling blocks that could potentially stop users from getting in touch with you or buying your products.
This can be done in an agile way so we can test page designs as we go, or for a more economical option we recommend testing the whole site once it is built. We can test pre-launch so we can make any tweaks to your text content, to improve the user experience or accessibility, or to make any calls to action more obvious. Or we can test post-launch, so we can complete further improvements at another stage, whenever you are ready.
Email marketing is a great way of keeping in touch with your customers, and telling them about your latest news or offers. We can design responsive promotional emailers with clear calls to action that your customers can view easily on their mobiles or tablets, and that tie in with your branding and website for a consistent user experience.
Jamie Lewis Design can design and build bespoke emailers as when needed, or set-up newsletter templates you can easily edit yourself through either an HTML editing program or through the leading email marketing services Mailchimp or CampaignMonitor. We can also help you create lists through your website data-capture for more targeted campaigns.
More than half of people in the UK now access the web or email through their mobile devices and an estimated 40% will choose a mobile-friendly website over a non-responsive site. Google even prioritises mobile sites on mobile searches. So it’s increasingly important your website is legible and easy to use on mobiles and tablets.
We create websites that are designed and built to look great on all devices – from phone to desktop – and increase the chances of your customers being able to make the choices you’d like them to make. If you want an offline App for Android and/or Apple we can do that too.
We started designing websites long before ‘User Experience’, ‘UX’ and ‘Brand Storytelling’ were marketing buzzwords! We have always put the user first and created websites that are carefully structured, visually engaging and quite frankly a joy to use. Our sites are designed to fulfil your customer’s goals and encourage them to take the actions you want them to.
If you need to take this further, we can liaise with our Associates to make sure you get the optimum results from your site. This can come early on in the planning stage in the form of wire framing, or during the design phase if you wish to work in a more agile way. We can also create personas that represent your target users, identify their specific needs and behaviours, and plan their user journeys.
Jamie Lewis Design love a good bit of animation to liven up a website or banner!
Flash is sadly becoming redundant, but we can still create simple animated gifs or banner ads, or work with specialists to fully animate either your whole site, or graphical elements for your site and videos.
