My client had an existing Website Design that was built a few years ago and had become outdated. Straight away from looking at the old website design I could see that it wasn't a responsive website - this means it didn't re-size when viewed on different devices; e.g. mobile phones and tablets.
This Website Design brief was an enjoyable challenge.
I don't have to tell you how much mobile phones have taken over our world. So having a website that re-sizes for mobiles has to be a priority.
My preferred choice for building websites is to use WordPress.
Many companies have a website, but it doesn't really help their business - (it's a glorified online brochure.)
They may have paid thousands of pounds for a nice looking Website Design. But they struggle with updating it, and often they have to pay someone every time they want to make a change.
With this particular Website Design, the above was certainly the case, they were happy with the design and structure of their old site however any small changes required a website coder and the response time was slow. The client had the ability to publish articles through a complicated custom management system and wanted to retain that feature along with some other specific requests.
WordPress is a great tool for building websites
This is where WordPress comes in as a great tool for building websites at a low cost and with the thousands of plug-ins and different themes available I was able to build a website that answered their brief and a lot more.
Following the completion of the site I helped the employees get to grips with the new system and continue to provide support should any problems arise.
The advantages of a WordPress Website Design means they can quickly customise the look of the site, and extend its functionality without knowing how to program.
