Our methods and approaches for responsive web design

How we build lightning-fast and customized websites

superschnelle und kundenorientierte Webseiten
  • Content management systems

    We always take a pragmatic approach and choose the right system based on the specific use case and budget. As developers, we do not favor any particular content management system. Among the systems we regularly use are WordPress, Drupal, Typo3 and Joomla. For websites that want to present a variety of products without being directly geared towards sales, we often use a store system such as Shopware, in which we then deactivate the sales functions.

  • Desktop, tablet & mobile

    Responsiveness and conversion rate optimization are just as important as the underlying technology. Websites that are responsive adapt seamlessly to any screen size - from desktops and laptops to tablets and smartphones. This ensures an optimal display without sacrificing design or performance from the user's point of view.

  • No templates but templating

    Our guiding principle is: no prefabricated templates, but individual templating. We rely on standardized frameworks to develop tailor-made templates specifically for your company. We are well-versed in working with templating engines in a variety of platforms and frameworks. Bootstrap, Twig and Smarty are among the tools we regularly work with.

  • Aesthetics & design

    At the beginning of the project, our design team captures your ideas and wishes for the new website, submits design proposals and analyzes your competitors to develop a detailed plan before we enter the next phase. In this phase, we design an innovative website structure and sitemap as well as the layout of your new website to ensure that everyone involved has a clear idea of the structure of the final project. First, the design team will present the layout and home page elements to you for review and approval. Once the layout is finalized, we begin the technical implementation while we finalize the home page and simultaneously move forward with the design of the subpages.

Our web design process

Six steps to a distinctive design

  • Requirements analysis

    To ensure that the design meets your needs, fits your company or brand and appeals to your target group, we start with a detailed analysis of the requirements of your design project. We evaluate your existing design, identify opportunities for improvement and capture your vision for the future design. We document these steps together with you in order to precisely define the goals and specific requirements of the project. We can then use this as a basis for estimating the likely duration of the project.

  • Successful collaboration requires the creation of a concept design. This draft includes all requirements as well as our strategies for implementation. Our graphic artists, designers and developers have the necessary expertise to understand what is required for a successful web design. At this point in the design process, your feedback is particularly important to us so that we can make targeted improvements. Combining your wants and needs with our expertise and creativity results in a customized plan that avoids misunderstandings and delays and ensures a successful project outcome.

  • The next step is to focus on the visual design of your web project. This includes developing the layout, selecting the color scheme, determining the typography, integrating images and much more. Our aim is to create a web application that is not only intuitive to use, but also works smoothly on all devices. The result is a design draft that is realized after further coordination with you.

  • Now we start with the implementation. In this stage, we incorporate the developed designs into your web application. We attach great importance to openness and keep you up to date on progress through regular meetings. A dedicated contact person will be at your side throughout the entire design and development process. Of course, we also keep a detailed record of all tasks carried out so that you always have an up-to-date overview of the costs and services provided.

  • Before we go live with your new design, we subject it to thorough testing to check for errors. This ensures that your web project works flawlessly, is highly user-friendly and can be used by users on different browsers and devices without any problems. We also check that all project requirements are met. Only when every team member - designer, graphic artist and developer - is fully satisfied is your web design project considered complete.

  • After five exciting steps, the time has come: your new design goes live. We can celebrate the successful completion of this project together. But the end of our project does not mean the end of our collaboration, should you wish to continue working with us.

  • Regular updates are essential to ensure that your design always runs flawlessly, as technology is constantly evolving. This is where our support and monitoring packages come into play. We offer you a package tailored to your needs and take care of all future updates and any work required for your web project.

What is web design anyway?

A brief guide to web design

  • What makes good web design?

    Good web design combines several elements that together improve the user experience and optimally support the purpose of the website. It encompasses both the visual design and the technical development of websites, with the aim of making them both attractive and user-friendly. Various steps are important in the web design process. The first step is careful planning, in which the goals and needs of the website are defined in order to form a stable basis. This includes the structure of the site, the design of the user guidance and the organization of the content. Another central point is the visual design, which deals with the visual appearance of the website, including the color scheme, layout, images and other graphic elements. A coherent visual presentation creates an inviting atmosphere and contributes to a positive response to the website. Typography also plays a decisive role. The selection of suitable fonts and their optimal display on different displays and devices increases readability and promotes a pleasant reading experience. The adjustment of font size, line spacing and the use of styles such as bold or italics are essential. Good web design also pays attention to user-friendliness. Navigation should be intuitive so that visitors can easily find their way around the site. Fast loading times and a responsive design for different screen formats are also crucial for a high-quality user experience.

  • What is the role of a web designer?

    A web designer takes care of the visual design and external appearance of a website. The aim is to create an attractive design that offers an optimal user experience on different devices. The activities of a web designer include the development of an aesthetic concept for the website, including the selection of color schemes, layouts, fonts and imagery to create a visually appealing overall image. They take into account the target audience and the purpose of the website to create a targeted design. Web designers are also responsible for ensuring that the website displays flawlessly on different devices such as desktops, tablets and smartphones, which includes adapting the design and navigation for different screen sizes. Although deep coding knowledge is not usually one of their main responsibilities, a basic understanding of HTML, CSS and possibly JavaScript is important so that they can effectively translate the design into code and work with developers to ensure the correct implementation of the design.

  • How is search engine optimization integrated into web design?

    Search engine optimization (SEO) in web design involves implementing specific measures to make websites more attractive to search engines like Google. A well thought-out web design takes SEO principles into account in order to maximize the visibility of the site. This includes the targeted use of keywords to make content relevant for search engines and users. Technical aspects such as fast loading times and a responsive design are crucial for the performance of the website. The structure and navigation of the website is also optimized to make it easier for search engines to search and index. Precisely defined metadata, such as meta descriptions and tags, contribute to a better representation in the search results. An SEO-friendly web design also takes into account user navigation to provide a positive experience for both users and search engines. In short, integrating SEO into web design aims to optimize websites according to search engine guidelines to achieve an effective and visible online presence.

  • Which programming languages are essential for web design?

    In the field of web design, various programming languages are used to make websites both functional and user-friendly. The most important ones include

    • HTML (Hypertext Markup Language): HTML forms the backbone of a website and defines the structure and content of a page.
    • CSS (Cascading Style Sheets): Determines the visual appearance of a page, including layout, colors and fonts.
    • JavaScript: Enables dynamic interactions on web pages and is essential for animations, form validation and other user interactions.
    • PHP (Hypertext Preprocessor): A server-side scripting language often used for generating dynamic website content and managing databases.
    • Python: Also valued in web design due to its versatility, often used for backend functionalities and the development of complex web applications.
    • Ruby: A scripting language used with the Ruby on Rails framework for efficient web application development.
    • Java: Used for server-side applications and complex web applications, known for its versatility in enterprise environments.

    These languages form the basis for the creation and design of websites, with their selection depending on the specific requirements of the project and the developer's preferences.

  • How to optimize web design for fast loading times?

    Fast loading times are crucial for the user experience. Here are some strategies for optimization:

    • Image optimization: Compress images to reduce file sizes and choose correct formats and sizes for efficient display.
    • Minimize HTTP requests: Reduce the number of server requests by merging CSS and JavaScript files and minimizing external scripts.
    • Use caching: Allow browsers to store static resources to reduce load times on repeat visits.
    • Efficient code optimization: Remove unnecessary code and minimize CSS and JavaScript files to increase efficiency.
    • Use of Content Delivery Networks (CDNs): Use CDNs to deliver content faster from a geographically closer server.
    • Responsive design: Implement a responsive design that adapts to different screen sizes and loads the resources required for each device.
