Web Design

What is Web Design?web_design

A good looking webiste is a very important part of it’s success; but an easily accessible website is even more important.

Web design is generally centred around two major design fields: graphic design and user interface design. We at Support Star believe that visual design should never overrule accessibility. There are many good looking websites that are difficult to navigate, or lack essential content. We are focussed on user interface design and employ basic graphic design only to enforce accessibility. Our main goal is to make good looking websites that are both content rich and highly accessible.

What is Development?

Web development is the process of translating your needs into a website which best represents your business or personal interests. The main goal is to provide your visitors with all the information and/or services they require in the most accessible way possible.

Technology Overview

There are hundreds of different technologies in use on the Internet. It can be quite overwhelming when trying to figure out which is best suited to a particular need. In addition, for any particular task there are various technologies that allow you to accomplish the same goal.

Good thing then that we favour quality, we employ only those technologies that help us achieve that specific goal. Affordability is also paramount, and hence we do not use any proprietary technologies which would incur additional costs for our clients.

Luckily, most of the best modern web technologies are open source (or free to use). Most proprietary technologies only offer advantages to developers (such as easier development, or visual development tools). We develop websites using the technologies that are the best for you, not the best for us.

Mobile Responsive Design

With the rise of mobile devices (smart phones, tablets, etc), many potential clients access the web using these types of devices. Almost all modern mobile devices can access the internet and browse websites. However, many of these devices have small display areas and websites that are made for large monitors can be cumbersome to navigate.

Modern web technologies allow developers to create websites that respond to the various screen sizes used to access the internet. A properly designed website reduces the size of certain items and hides unneeded content in order to provide comfortable use on a smaller screen device. Each website will have different needs when it comes to displaying content on a mobile device, and we will evaluate and implement these on a per-webiste basis.

We take great care in creating websites that are ready for the modern Internet and mobile devices in general.

What on Earth is SEO?seo-for-humans

SEO is a set of techniques used to optimize a website so that it is visible to all the major search engines, including South African versions such as www.google.co.za. Once visible, the goal is to get the website ranked as high as possible in search results.

Why do I need it?

Statistically, an online search engine is the the best marketing tool available today. So far we have sucessfully brought our clients to the first page of search results in all the major search engines. We have also managed to keep them there for their specific and most important keywords.

We analyse each and every one of our clients’ websites and design a special workflow for each one to ensure maximum ROI (return on investment). Our aim is to bring you 100% or more of all the capital you have invested in your website.

With the complexity and market saturation on the internet today, not even Google can ensure a specific search ranking. All they can do is serve up the highest quality websites (based on their algorithm) for any particular search query. To have your website on the first page for every possible combination of relevant search terms is nearly impossible.

That is where SEO comes in. It is up to SEO to discover as many as possible relevant search terms and to ensure that your website ranks as high as possible for all searches involving those terms. This is not an easy feat, but one that we take very seriously and strive towards diligently.
