A Little Bit About Our Method of Web Design

1 Web Design to Get Your Key Messages Across

Straight to the heart of what is important

When visiting your website, people decide in mere seconds if you are the right company for them.

The above-the-fold content MUST therefore tell them what you can offer them AND appear attractive enough so that they stay on your site.

2 Websites Designed to Highlight Your Strengths

Highlight business strengths

We spend time with you considering what aspects of your business need to be brought out in the design.

Together, we decide where and how to highlight these points. Then we ensure that:

  • Words and images work together to highlight strengths.
  • Colour draws the eye to important points.

4 Visitors Guided to Desired Action

Desired action

Where appropriate, we place prominent "Act Now" buttons. For example, many charities like a prominent donate button.

  • Medical Justice, UK charity

    Responsive CMS website redesign

    The Donate button is (discretely) highlighted in the menu bar

    Relevant pages have call-to-action buttons

    Charity website redesign for Medical Justice

In this charity web redesign, the charity chose to have a reasonably discrete donate button at the right of each menu bar. Relevant pages, however, have prominent call-to-action buttons.

5 Easy to Use and Attractive

Attractive designs

Visitors need to be able to find the information they need easily.

Visitors are more likely to trust a business that has a modern, attractive website than one with an uncared-for, badly designed, outdated site.

    Easy-to-use menus always visible

    Hand-created Wordles reflect page content

A Few Customer Comments

  • "Thank you very much for the work you have done to improve our website. It is a complete transformation and has been very well received by our members. They are a critical bunch.
    You have taken our brief and produced a site that meets all of the requirements we specified and done it within the timescale we agreed, at a very reasonable cost. It even has some nice features that we did not specify."

    Research Network, London

  • "Thankyou for all your help ... I've had lots of referrals via the site. I'm really pleased with it. I often recommend you to others who seem to be struggling with creating websites themselves or have paid people to create one but then seem to end up doing a lot of it themselves! Your service was marvellous for me with limited technical knowledge and time. I absolutely love the look of the site as well."

    Sandra Hayes Therapy, Essex and Sufffolk

  • "We found Unique Websites to be very helpful to a company that is not terribly IT literate. A truly personal service from a family business that kept us informed and involved at every stage."
