Why responsive ? Google has made a significant update to its search algorithm impacting the way websites are ranked when performing searches. If your site isn't mobile friendly, your business is going to suffer.
I design, develop, and maintain responsive web sites and have been for the last ten years. This is our latest project for a start up construction and maintenance business here in the North West. The company had existing branding and were ready to launch a web presence. Reports show smartphones and tablets combined now account for 6o percent of all online traffic, up from 50 percent a year ago, so even a business to business company like Smart, needs to reflect this and be responsive to different screen sizes.
The preparation for development was fairly straight forward. I had a brief meeting with the Director of the business Paul, to find out a little more about what was required. We discussed project goals, timescales and compared a variety of other web sites in the sector. I came away with a list of requirements, a rough structure of pages and some text and image content. Over the next few days I worked the branding and content into a three design concepts - then uploaded to web space for Paul and his team to evaluate. Once a preference was identified I built a beta site on test space and uploaded a holding page to the correct domain URL. This meant all stakeholders in the project were able to see the progress and contribute content and make suggestions at the earliest possible opportunity. After a couple of weeks, we were there and launched the site.
If you are looking for a Merseyside company that can design, supply, install mechanical and electrical building services then Smart Building Services are the go to organisation.
I can design your company a web site from scratch or take your existing design and convert it to a responsive, mobile friendly WordPress theme. Give me a call and lets hook up for a coffee to discuss your project.Tags: responsive, designer, design, Wordpress

Back on the blog with a quick update on recent business and commercial photography commissions. Working with a housing association, a bike charity, a medical society, a recruitment agency and a dental practice.
A really interesting commission working with Livv Housing documenting a fire and rescue exercise in high-rise residential apartments in Kirkby. These are the people who will literally save your life!
Another Liverpool industrial photography commission under the belt and more hi-viz PPE added to the boot of the car. This time nice and local in the Old Swan, a couple of miles away from home. It was for the Lister Drive Greener Grid Park installation which is currently under construction.
"Had a really great photo shoot with David, punctual, professional and put me at ease straight away. I couldn't have asked for more and the results speak for themselves, excellent pictures, perfect for Spotlight! Will be calling again, thank you."
