Web Design and Database Development

Design Philosophy

I have long been an advocate of visually simple, clean designs for web sites for because visitors find them easier to navigate and to find what they are looking for.

When designing a web site, there are several things I like to keep in mind:

  • The target audience
  • Your organization's branding; the logo, colours, and general style.
  • The web site's goals (information, sales, content distribution etc)
  • Content organization (ease of reading and for search engines).
  • Possible future expansion of web site
  • Ensuring the design is accessible to all users.

Accessible?

Nearly everyone who spends time online has seen messages like "This site best optimized for Internet Explorer", "Unsupported browser", or even worse the site just doesn't work properly.

Designing web sites to work equally well in all web browsers (including those for the visually impaired) can be a bit more work, but no business person would kick someone out of their establishment for wearing a blue shirt, so why discriminate against someone for using a different web browser?

Web Development Services

Here are some examples of some of the web site related services I can offer you.

Starting fresh

Not having a web site today can be a serious hinderance to a business. As more and more people look to the Internet to find products and services they need not having an online presence means lost business.

Web site make-over

As technology marches forward and online trends change, a periodic web site renovation is a good idea. This can include upgrading the actual code to be more people and search engine friendly, visually updating the look, adding new features (such as adding videos), new content, or a smattering of all of them.

Ongoing maintenance

Running a small business or organization can be a lot of work. Let Darner media help you with doing the ongoing maintenance (text updates, adding photographs, etc) to your web site.

Custom Database Development

For web sites, a database will be required. This can be for storing products in an online store, tracking clients, providing other data online. For this, I can build an online application to suit your needs.

Why pick Darner media?

Firstly, thanks for reading all the way down to the bottom of the page. I have been designing and building web pages since 1999, and by now, I can faithfully tell you that I'm in it for the long haul. I enjoy what I do, and I love helping small businesses and organizations get onto the web.

If you have any questions at all, I would be happy to answer them.
