Website
Design

With 12 years experience in Media we understand the principles of effective web design. 

Like the phrase ‘beauty is in the eye of the beholder’, effective web design is judged by the users of the website and not the website owners. There are many factors that affect the usability of a website, and it is not just about form (how good it looks), but also function (how easy is it to use).

Our Web Designers and Developers

We employ highly skilled and experienced web designers and developers so you don't have to. They work closely with you to ensure your website is true to your brand and consistent across all platforms. Content and media selection is very important. For an entry-level website it normally consists of 4/5 page; Home, About Us, Products/Services, Portfolio and a contact us page. When it comes to Media/Images, the client can supply original artwork and images or allow us to source the images either based on free or commercial based image stock.

Joomla & Wordpress Design

Overview of CMS, Joomla or Wordpress

A content management system (CMS) is an application that allows you to create and run your website. You will get an admin panel - an interface where you can create and update pages, posts and other types of content (images, videos, etc) and arrange the content the way you need. 
You will also be able to change the design of the site through the admin panel by installing themes (design templates) and changing them when you want. All the actions are done simply by clicking buttons - you will not have to write codes or scripts in most cases.

FAQ's

What is Wordpress?

WordPress is an open source CMS that powers over half of the world’s CMS sites, and it is getting more comprehensive, intuitive and popular with each new update release. WordPress has a committed community, tons of free extensions (more than any other CMS) and the easiest-to-use interface. 
Managing your content with WordPress is perfectly simple: you create a page, add it to the menu, post something on it and see your content on the front-end of your site. All that adds up to a preeminent CMS platform. So why do so many people choose WordPress for their site? Because WordPress is the easiest CMS to use. 

What is Joomla?

On the other hand, Joomla extension developers and community have come up with many inspired solutions to common web design problems that are hard to resolve within WordPress. If we take any Joomla slider extension as an example, you can set its location on the page, the duration for showing each slide, the sliding effect and the type of pagination. 
In a nutshell, Joomla CMS is a good choice if you have this unending curiosity and eagerness in you to learn. Even though it takes time and effort to get used to its peculiarities, people very often fall in love with Joomla.
