Our design methodology
At Software Sorcerers, we place special emphasis on website design as it forms the basis of website development. More than coding and programming in the development phase, we recognize that the primary success of a website lies in its ability to connect with the aesthetic capabilities of its audience. Furthermore, our experience gives us insight into the behavior of audiences around the world and allows us to design sites that suit the tastes of diverse audiences.
We take a step-by-step approach to ensure an attractive, functional and search engine friendly website, with due emphasis on the following factors:
Gathering and analyzing client requirements
Using effective communication channels, we gain insight into the client's concept, goals and design requirements and prepare a detailed list of client requirements. Our website design teams discuss appearance and other requirements with clients through a well-thought-out process involving active consultation, participation and involvement of all stakeholders.
Our web designers visualize the client's concept and translate it into creative expression keeping in mind the client's requirements. When visualizing the layout, we emphasize such factors as the client's country, culture and background, and the client's taste. A complete form of website design including all essential functions/services of the company is ready for assessment and proposal. These suggestions are then incorporated into the website design and create a solid foundation for the website layout for design and development.
Image selection and optimization
We understand the importance of quality images in creating a lasting impression on the audience. As such, we use the latest technologies and standards in image acquisition and processing. We use cascading styles and flash images to enhance the aesthetic value of your website. We perform image optimization to ensure that the images are conceptually oriented, crystal clear, pleasing, consistent, reasonable in number and exhibit quality resolution.
Text and colors
Our website designers focus on the selection of text and colors on the website, as some fonts and colors are not user-friendly. We also make sure that the text and colors relate well to other elements on the site as well as to the needs of the clients. We use fonts and colors that are reader-friendly and visitor-friendly.
We ensure the consistency of the website as a whole through careful care in developing consistent design elements. We make sure that the concept of the site (i.e. site type, company logo, purpose of the site, etc.) is reflected throughout the site. Size consistency is maintained through efficient handling of menu bars and other tabs, links, banners, content areas, fonts, images, animations, flash content, headers and footers, and advertisements. Color consistency is ensured by focusing on light and matte effects (shades, darkness, brightness, contrast, 2D/3D level adjustments, reflections, etc.).
Much attention is paid to the HTML conversion of design elements. An in-depth, inch-by-inch comparison with the original mockup is done in accordance with W3C standards to ensure 100% compatibility of color, size, fonts, images, layout, menu and all other aspects of the site.
Cascading Styles / CSS
The CSS capabilities of style versatility, simpler code, and content segmentation are well known. The powerful features of CSS-based websites, such as their fast loading capacity, easy-to-edit websites, rich styling and graphics, and SEO/SEM support, have made them an essential tool for website design.
CSS developers at Software Sorcerers are proficient in advanced versions of CSS and follow a W3C compliant coding approach when developing websites. We use our CSS-SEO experience and implement methods such as content placement, list and heading styles, external CSS stylesheets and other techniques to ensure search engine friendly websites. CSS techniques such as hacks and filters are used to make CSS-based websites compatible between different browsers.
Our expertise includes Aural Cascading Style Sheets (ACSS), which enable voice output. With ACSS, we can develop websites that provide auditory renditions of embedded content, which is extremely beneficial for the visually impaired. Speech synthesis and volume adjustment are performed during web application development.
