Successful web development is more than how a site looks, it is how the website works. Great websites are form and function combined.
At Vision Thing we develop websites that are user friendly, easy to manage, accessible to everyone, fast loading, search engine optimised and use responsive web design techniques to work equally on smartphones, tablets, laptops and desktops.
Great web development needs to work hand in hand with great web design and user interface design. At Vision Thing our designers and developers work closely together to make sure that our websites don't just look good but that their functionality matches their looks.
Vision Thing develop websites using standards compliant HTML5 and CSS3 to build rich interactive experiences that are available on any device.
Adding to the strong semantic foundation of HTML and CSS we then add layers of Progressive Enhancement to give extra functionality that is supported by cutting edge devices.
A website is the stage for displaying your product or business to the world but what goes on behind the scenes is equally important. A website can be your customers first call for communicating with you or allow them to buy your products directly.
Managing the products you sell online or editing the content on your website yourself frees you from being reliant on a web developer or design agency. Having a website with a Content Management System (CMS) simplifies managing your website content, freeing you to concentrate on your business.
All our sites are developed using open-source Content Management Systems, such as WordPress or Joomla, allowing you to quickly and easily update your website content.
Our websites are thoroughly tested throughout the development process and not just at the end of a project before a site goes live. Testing early in the production cycle makes it easier for us to identify errors and discover potential improvements to how a website functions.
We test how the site functions, how the user interface works, it's accessibility to different user abilities and how the site works on the multitude of desktops, devices, and operating systems.
Part of our testing process is done using automated tools that check our code for errors and how the site functions in a range of environments. We also use rigorous User Testing to ensure that a website is easy to use and to gain insights into any improvements we can make to the site.
