We don’t like jargon or buzzwords, and would like to make your life a lot easier. So we will describe everything you need to know about Development & Design in an understandable manner.
What is the difference between Development and Design?
It is important to know the difference between the two terms: “Web Development” and “Web Design“, as in many cases you will find that they are being used interchangeably. Although in our firm there is no developer that doesn’t take design into account and vice versa. Because both have to work hand in hand to make sure the site lives up to our client’s expectations. So what does the web-developer? The (web) development of a project is directly involved with the back-end of the site, i.e. the more technical part of a site. We make sure that the site works the way the designer intended, and we focus on how the customer can get things done as quickly and effortlessly as possible.
Whereas web design plays a bigger role on the front-end of the site, where the customer’s experience comes into account. Our designers are concerned about how the site looks and how the customer interacts with it. Colors, shapes, icons and logos are all very important in order to create a great designed website. We look at the intention of the client and his site and based on that we create the best design possible.
Where do you pay attention to regarding Development?
During our first discovery meeting we go over the project and establish what needs to be done for our clients, more about this process you can find here. After we have decided the focus of your project we divide the total workload among the necessary departments. When we look at development we normally pay attention to:
- The security of the site
- The code and the design of the code
- The functionalities
- The server, host and database
- Speed of the site
- Integration with SEO and Design Dep.
- Optimization of files
And where do you pay attention to regarding Design?
After the discovery meeting’s process we immediately enable our designers to brainstorm and come up with suitable designs for the project. It can be that we have to redo the logo, site, or app. Our designers then start on your project and will pay attention to:
- Brand and Identity
- Colors, Shapes, Icons
- Sizes, Distances and Proportions
- User’s Interaction
- Navigation and Goal Completion
Application software development and design is a set of processes that we perform for our clients in order to produce an application for small mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. The roots of the processes are similar to web development, however there is one key difference. When we write software for mobile devices it has to be done precisely for the operating system it is intended for. So we write your app specially for IOS and if it is desired to have the app run on Android we write the same app but then for Android, and unfortunately the code written for one operating system cannot be used for the other. Please contact us here to request a quote for your application.
01 Website Development
We offer Wordpress, Silver Stripe or Shopify development, these are also the platforms that you will be able to manage your site. We recommend these three to our clients, the difference is that one is better for company websites and the other is better for online stores, for example. Our fee changes per platform, this is because development in Silver Stripe requires higher skills and more time compared to development in Shopify. Reach out for more info here.
