Website Design Templates

The art of website templating

Most things in this life that look good and work well are created from some sort of plan or good foundation. The same is true for website design.

Building websites from the ground up

Before entering this stage, our website designers will have reached the end of the website design phase. This will see the design left in an image format. Obviously this has to be converted into code, that all magical language that lies behind all websites! This is the beginning of a website development template.

Concerning website templates

A website template is not only the website design realised in code form, but it is the essential layout of the website page - an essential building block that has to be in place before any website development can commence. If you are looking at building a simple brochure website design or re-branding your e-commerce website design, then it all has to begin with the website template.

Just as this website design has a layout, so will every other website design. Where does the navigation go? What about any imagery? How does the content sit in relation to other elements? All of this will be built in the website template.

Everyone needs a template

Whether your website design project is of a more conventional and static nature or requires a CMS website design solution (Content Management System), it will need a template before any website design company can begin to build.

We understand the importance of this step of the process. Missing this step, or any errors within this website design template process, could have costly repercussions later on.

The trouble with browsers...

Unfortunately, as website browsers, such as Internet Explorer, Firefox and Safari, have been developed by independent companies, each of them do not work to a set checklist.

A website design that does not display properly, or at all, will lose your company business. The importance of this is not wasted on our website designers and developers. We know that any user could be using any version of any browser. Whilst we cannot build a website for really old and obsolete browsers without compromising on functionality or possibly the aesthetics of the website design, we can ensure that our website templates perform as they are designed to in all major browsers.

Testing, testing and more testing

In this very competitive marketplace, all the care and attention that has gone into the website design will be lost if it is not cross browser, and operating system, compatible.

As such, the a fish in sea website development team will test each website template in every major browser to ensure your business is portrayed in a correct and professional way. This is all part of the essential process put in place for any website design project, from flash website design to more conventional projects. A project managed by a fish in sea, is a website design that will work for every user within the identified target market.

Horses for courses

There is a set process for the creation of website design templates. Initially our website development team will create a Master Template. This will generally be the home page. Once tested thoroughly, we can then create a Sub-Template for any other pages that require it. Using the Master as a base, our website development team then adapt the Master to suit the new requirements. Every Sub-Template will then undergo all the same testing that the Master has undergone, until it also passes.

So rather than being scared by website design templates, or thinking they are an unnecessary and costly evil, perhaps you can now view them as the foundation to your online place of business. Something to be proud of and to look after!
