Let's see some examples of design elements

We prefer to display some of our creative works specifically relating to various aspects of web design. The web design process can often be a very subjective process where significant market research is not undertaken and thus the finished product often reflects the preferences of the business owners and subsequently it's most important you have an understanding of our technical abilities.


If you would like to review finished products we have developed these are available on request and examples given will be subject to your market, brand or story.

Special Effects

Special effects are not a commonly used design element on a typical website; but who wants to be typical? stand out from the rest of the noise with visually striking effects to particular elements or areas of your website.

FONTS

We have access to every available font and have endless options to provide a unique brand experience. If you already have brand guidelines we will adhere to these, otherwise we will provide you with our recommendations for your project.

Gradient Effects

Gradient effects can be utilised in any aspect of website design, hover over the options below to see some options!

Neon Signs

Looking for a retro website design? Perhaps from a bygone era? Neon was hugely popular in the 1930s and 50s and again in the 80s. Could we start a resurgence!? Either way, neon colours, signs and elements can be using sparingly for striking effects in many different circumstances.

Custom Iconography

Your custom designed icons will work to enhance the messaging of specific sections of your page, to reinforce your brand, or create a consistent aesthetic and feeling across your site in conjunction with your broader colour scheme. These icons were produced for a luxury chauffeur company, simple and yet effective.

We can animate even the smallest of design elements including vector graphics, for that added touch, perhaps to emphasise a checkout cart or CTA on an ecommerce page.

Super Contact Forms

Make one of the most uninspiring but important elements of your landing pages stand out. Who wouldn't want to hit submit to see what happens?

Animated Backgrounds

Create beautifully authentic page designs with full page background animations.

Page or Element Animations

Tell a story, create intrigue or invoke emotions with specially designed page animations built from css, javascript and HTML. Animations such as these can be basic animated shapes or complex designs, spanning small elements or sections of a particular webpage, or form part of a full width and height page design. You might consider as a logistics business, to have a lorry carrying goods across the top of the navigation menu as an example, or a balloon carrying away a contact form on submission. Your imagination is often the limit!

Maintain attention with interesting designs

Custom Animated Elements

Fully custom designed using either professional design suites like Adobe Illustrator or designed with html, css and javascript, we add immersion, intrigue and depth to your site design with both animated or static designs.

Make your elements clickable and interactive to either tell a story, improve engagement or act as navigational elements leading to other important pages of your site.

Influence and interact with your users with custom HTML and CSS designs such as these load spinners.

Countdown Timers

Countdown timers serve as excellent design elements to inspire visitors to take action or stay updated on your upcoming events. They can be instrumental in boosting product sales, promoting special offers, and achieving various other goals. The versatility of timers allows you to display them anywhere on your website—whether floating independently, integrated into a top or bottom banner, featured in a full-screen display, within a specific menu, or other design elements. The possibilities to enhance your site's functionality with these visually appealing web design options are virtually limitless.

Our Website Design FAQ

Should I have a HTML custom coded site or a CMS?

Every aspect of web design should incorporate search engine best practices to maximise ranking positions for a company website within its chosen market.

This includes the design elements, size, file types, and attributes of each image or video on display. Also considered is the way content is loaded and displayed on your site, among a significant list of other variables concerning the website design in particular.

Digital Scientists are experts first and foremost in SEO and as such, a website that is to perform in search engines and other online platforms will not succeed without meticulous SEO research.

Our clients expect the best results so before we embark on any company website design project (where the objective is to generate revenue from online enquiry), we will acquire, clean and analyse thousands of search queries from various sources online.

This data will be used to advise our client on the opportunity from their established market and how many pages the website will need to be to achieve their objectives.

Without expert SEO consultancy a website designer may very well create a beautiful site but it will serve only existing customers who are already familiar with the business without drawing potential customers in.

Digital Scientist clients get the best of both.

What is a CMS?

A Content Management System (CMS) is a software solution used to create and modify digital content online. For example, a CMS is typically used for small businesses and enterprises to display content for a company Intranet, or for web-based content of which is displayed on a company website. 


There are a large variety of Content Management Solutions on the market; the most notable are mentioned on this page. These vary in ease of use, typically requiring a combination of design and coding skills to make the best use of the platforms, although most aim to be a codeless design system.

What is the best Content Management System?

A large variety of solutions exist between popular Content Management Solutions (CMS). Some are more geared towards developers and SEO's; others are more focused towards micro-entities, entrepreneurs and small businesses. The best CMS very much depends on what your objectives are, how you want your website to function, and where you are obtaining your traffic from. For example: if you are predominantly advertising and accessing your target market through Instagram, a simpler CMS builder may be the right option as it will require less technical knowledge and you won't need to worry so much about meeting search engine guidelines and best practices.


Contact us for guidance!


Content Management Systems Examples

An example of a Content Management System could be WordPress, it being hugely popular with its template/theme-based builder whilst providing varying levels of access to its CSS and HTML, all the while having a massive network of integrated app solutions for a variety of business needs.


A similar and simpler builder would be Wix, which provides an intuitive 'drag and drop' builder with .js coding ability for custom apps and functionality. This builder is simpler to use for a new local enterprise and, like WordPress, has an app marketplace where you can download and use apps covering a variety of functions such as blogging, email marketing, LiveChat, analytics and more. Wix are constantly developing new email marketing, CRM and other integrated functions.


Both CMS solutions provide limited access to performance tweaking (Wix more so than WordPress) of the site built into the solution but are equally good from an SEO perspective. We have clients who rank for thousands of keywords on Google in positions 1-3, have preference and use either WordPress or Wix. The decision on the builder however is typically client-led on smaller budgets.


Other builders we are familiar with are as below but have typically less functionality:

My 1&1/Ionos

GoDaddy

123 Reg

SquareSpace

Site123


There are other solutions but in terms of the best examples of CMS, the above are the front-runners.

Website Redesign?

Quite often we are asked to totally redevelop a website. However, upon inspection the site in question performs very well. 


Our role is to ensure your site will achieve your objectives before you opt for a new site entirely. If you feel the design is outdated for example, or is not bringing in adequate lead generation, the issue may be that you need to focus on rebranding and design or employ SEO services.

We can assist with branding and video, where appropriate. What you should avoid is jumping into paying for a complete redevelopment, as you may end up with the same result.
