But what exactly is responsiveness? Responsiveness in modern web applications refers to how quickly and efficiently an application responds to user interactions. A responsive web application responds quickly and seamlessly to user interactions such as clicks, keystrokes and mouse movements without the need to reload the page. This can be achieved by using technologies such as AJAX, WebSockets, or modern frameworks such as React, Vue and Angular. We specialize in Vue, but are also very familiar with the other technologies.
However, reactive programming in modern web applications goes one step further by not only reacting to changes made by user input, but also automatically recognizing changes in the data source. This means that if a value in the data source changes, the application is automatically updated without any additional instructions from the user. Our data source of choice is usually an API approach provided by the PHP framework Symfony. Symfony is one of the most popular and widely used PHP frameworks, used by many developers and companies worldwide.
Reactive web applications provide users with a faster, smoother and more engaging experience and can also improve application performance by minimizing data exchange between server and client.
Content management systems
Our approach is always pragmatic and depending on the use case and budget, we select a suitable system. As software developers, we do not want to hype any particular content management system. Our most frequently used systems include WordPress, Drupal, Typo3 and Joomla. Websites that want to display many products but are not designed for sales are often created with a store system such as Shopware, from which we then program the sales buttons.
Desktop, tablet & mobile
Responsiveness and conversion optimization are at least as important as the technology in the background. Responsive websites automatically adapt to the optimal display on all screen sizes, from desktop or laptop computers to tablets and smartphones, without compromising the design experience or performance on the part of your customers.
No templates but templating
Our credo: No templates but templating. We rely on standard frameworks and build an individual template developed specifically for your company. When it comes to templating engines, we are trained on many different platforms and frameworks. We regularly work with Bootstrap, Twig and Smarty.
Aesthetics & design
At the start of the project, our design team will gather information from you about what you want from your new website, make suggestions and research competitors to create an action plan before moving on to the next phase. This is where we develop an innovative structure and sitemap and the layout of your new website so that everyone involved has a clear picture of how the finished project will be structured. The design team will first present the layout and home page elements to you for review and approval. Once the layout is complete, we can begin development while we finalize the home page and work on the designs for the subpages.
7 steps to a unique design
Are you looking for a responsive web design that suits your company and your target group and wondering how to implement it? At EXWE, the development of your individual web design comprises several steps. We are in constant direct contact with you throughout the entire design process. This enables us to ensure iterative development.
The great advantage of a responsive web design is that your web application is available and intuitive for all users - regardless of the device they are using. Our agile development of your new design enables you to reach and inspire your target group in a timely manner on all channels.
To ensure that you receive a design that meets your expectations, fits your company or brand and also appeals to your target group, the first step is to analyze the requirements for the design project. We look at your existing design, discover potential for improvement and record what you would like to see in your future design. We document this together with you in order to record the performance requirements and details of the project. We can then also determine the timeframe for your project.
For a successful collaboration, it is essential to create a concept design. The concept contains all the requirements and our plans for implementation. Our graphic artists, designers and developers know what is important and what you need for a successful web design. Of course, we welcome your valuable feedback at this point in the design process so that we can make improvements. Your wishes and requirements, coupled with our expertise and creativity, result in a unique roadmap that avoids delays and misunderstandings and can produce a successful end result.
Planning & Design
In the next step, we take care of the design. We create all visual aspects of your web project such as layout, color scheme, typography, images and more. In doing so, we ensure that the web application can be used intuitively and responsively on all devices. This results in a design draft that can be implemented in the next step after further consultation with you.
Now it's time for implementation. In this phase, our designs are developed and actually integrated into your web application. We focus on full transparency and give you updates on our progress in regular meetings. A direct contact person is always available to you during the entire design and development process. Of course, we also document all implemented tasks so that you can access an up-to-date cost and performance overview at any time.
Before your new design goes live, we carry out extensive tests to check for possible errors. In this way, we can also guarantee that there are no usability problems with your web project and that users have unrestricted access from all browsers and devices. Of course, we also check that we have met all the defined requirements of the project and only when all the designers, graphic artists and developers in our team are 100% satisfied will your web design project be completed.
After five exciting steps, the time has finally come! Your new design finally goes live. Together we can now celebrate the completion of a successful project. But our collaboration doesn't have to end if you don't want it to.
Support & monitoring
To ensure that your design continues to function flawlessly, updates will always be necessary. This is because technology continues to evolve. This is exactly where our support and monitoring packages come in. On request, we can provide you with a suitable contingent and take care of all updates and work that will be required for your web project in the future.

What is Webdessign?
A short FAQ about web design
What is good web design?
Good web design is a combination of various aspects that improve the user experience and effectively fulfill the purpose of a website. It refers to the design and development of websites to make them functional, appealing and user-friendly. Several factors play a role in web development. First, careful conceptualization is important to understand the goals and requirements of the website and create a solid foundation. This includes planning the site structure, user navigation and content organization. A crucial aspect of web design is, of course, the visual design. This involves the aesthetic component of the website, including the color palette, layout, images and other graphic elements. A harmonious visual design creates an appealing atmosphere and contributes to the positive perception of the website. This also includes typography. Choosing the right fonts and displaying them properly on different screen sizes and devices improves readability and ensures a pleasant reading experience. Font size, line spacing and the use of bold or italics should be carefully balanced. A good web design also takes user-friendliness into account. Navigation should be intuitive and easy to understand so that users can navigate through the website effortlessly. Fast page loading time and responsive adaptation to different screen sizes are also important aspects to ensure a positive user experience.
What exactly does a web designer do?
How does search engine optimization apply to web design?
Search engine optimization in web design refers to the application of guidelines to optimize websites for search engines such as Google. A powerful web design takes these guidelines into account to ensure optimized visibility. It includes the use of relevant keywords to optimize the content for search engines. Technical optimizations such as fast loading times and responsive design improve website performance. The structure and navigation of the website are optimized to facilitate crawling and indexing by search engines. Precise metadata, such as meta descriptions and meta tags, are optimized for better presentation in search results. Web design also considers usability to provide a positive experience for both users and search engines. In summary, search engine optimization in web design is about designing websites according to search engine specifications in order to achieve a powerful and optimized presence in search results.
Which programming languages are used for web design?
Various programming languages are used for web design to make websites functional and user-friendly. Some of the most common programming languages used in web design are
- HTML (Hypertext Markup Language): HTML forms the basic framework of a website and defines the structure and content of a page.
- PHP (Hypertext Preprocessor): PHP is a server-side scripting language and is commonly used to generate dynamic content and manage databases in web applications.
- Python: Python is a versatile programming language that is also used in web design. It is often used for complex backend functionalities and the development of web applications.
- Ruby: Ruby is a popular scripting language used for web design and web application development. The Ruby on Rails framework provides a sophisticated and efficient development environment.
- Java: Java is often used for the development of server-side applications and complex web applications. It offers a wide range of features and can be found in many large enterprise environments.
How can web design be optimized for fast loading times?
To optimize web design for fast loading times, there are various approaches that focus on web design. Here are some ways to achieve this:
- Optimizing images: Images are often one of the main reasons for slow loading times. By compressing images, file sizes can be reduced and loading times improved. In addition, images should be used in the correct formats and sizes to enable efficient display.
- Use of content delivery networks (CDNs): CDNs are networks of servers used to store and deliver content closer to user sites. By using a CDN, loading times can be reduced as the content is provided by a server that is geographically closer to the user.
- Responsive design: A responsive design enables the website to be displayed optimally on different screen sizes and devices. By using media queries and flexible layouts, it can be ensured that only the resources required for the respective end device are loaded, resulting in faster loading times.
