Website Re-design Is it difficult to make updates to your website to reflect new products or changes in your business? Is your website our not bringing you the number of visitors and customers that you expected? It might be time for a redesign.

The performance of your website hinges on a specific set of elements. These elements are a combination of your website’s visual appeal, its copy and overall selling ability, and its ease-of-navigation and function.

If these elements aren’t working together, your site’s fundamental message and capacity to perform, is compromised.

If this is the case with your site: lack of performance through unsatisfactory planning and content implementation, or if you just need an overhaul, something new; then it may be time for a website re-design.

At Creative Designs, we understand that customers to your site need to be able to find what they are looking for, in the shortest period of time possible. We know that a site that is not easily navigated suffers abandonment and very quickly loses its ability to retain visitors and effectively convey your intent.

We offer you full web re-design consulting, and with our website construction knowledge, as well as our content writing and selling know-how, we can ‘freshen’ even your most tepid or out-of-date content.

Your website, in addition, needs the most effective and up-to-date content that utilises, through key word repetition, Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) and the best possible search engine rank. We will gear your site, through selective keyword-laden content, to an SEO ranking mirroring your business acumen and your own love for your company; and all without sacrificing readership and the experience, for your clients, of being on a beautiful and well-designed website.

Don’t delay! The longer you wait the more dysfunctional and ineffective your site becomes. Contact us now for a quote on re-designing your existing website to utilise the elements needed to regain maximum productivity. More simply, though, act now and let us help you obtain a website that you can be proud to associate your brand and name with.

HTML Web Design Website design is not always about creativity and the balancing of elements to create something visually pleasing. Creating your ideal website goes further below the surface, and relies on a specific language that allows browsers to interpret the features of your site.

At Creative Designs, we have extensive knowledge on programming and coding with HyperText Markup Language, or HTML. The HTML language forms the building blocks of your site, and allows browsers all over the world to convert your website’s language into the features-ridden and beautiful piece of artwork it has the potential to be.

HTML coding is exceedingly important, as it allows people to SEE your website with the intended effect; it’s as simple as that. But, to be most rewarding, HTML programming must be done by those with the know-how and experience to code with style; code with aplomb and to code with maximum effect in mind.

HTML coding, allows web browsers all over the world to interpret specific tags included in the language. These tags make it possible for content such as images, lists, active links and all other forms of content to be interpreted and shown to the desired effect, to anyone wishing to view your site.

Ask us how, using our superior coding knowledge, we can create for you a site that utilises HTML to the level where anything regarding your website’s vision is possible, and to the level that lends a certain power to your site, in its superior structure. We will code your site using the basic elements of web design and composition, while at the same time, implementing the science of language coding, to ensure the correct and tasteful positioning of all your website’s most important and relevant features.
