Clear approach

AlexxDesign has the following approach to full service website (and other media) projects:

  • When you know your perfect customer your website can be configured to 'speak' to that customer, to sway them and if required, to sell to them. 
    Do you have the research tools to gain insights into the needs and motivations of those customers when they reach your website? Do you have the resources to conduct the user interviews and ethnographic studies to really understand how to target your customer? Alexx does.
  • Good designed websites favour well-signed motorways to their visitors, allowing them to easily navigate and discover.
    Would you like to know the quality of your website visitor's experience, what they do on your site? Can they find the information they require easily and are they enticed to an easy selling experience? For all of AlexxDesigned websites, the answer to these questions is a definite – yes!

  • A beautiful hotel is useless if it’s buried away, and nobody knowing of its existence.
    Similarly, the best designed website is wasted if the web-surfer is not aware of it. Can you ensure the world knows of your website? Will they be seduced to visit you rather than your competitors? Does your website obey all complex rules of Search Engine Optimisation and are social media strategies embraced? AlexxDesign ensures you get the marketing you need for success!

  • A website must be simple to use and easy on the eye.
    The layout and design should lead to Accessible, Readable and Intuitive web-pages, whilst keeping the focus on products & services.
    Alex ensures all this, AND makes sure the website has aesthetic appeal..

  • Advanced technology goes into the creation of websites nowadays.
    If you don't use the latest technology you'll have a horse drawn wagon of a website instead of a space shuttle! Do you need a website that responds quickly and consistently, on various platforms (desktop, laptop, tablets and smart phones), and contains an appropriate CMS (Content Management System)?
    If so, choose AlexxDesign to build your website.

  • The people who created the Boeing 747 didn't juggle all the pieces together and hoped the aircraft would take-off perfectly on the first attempt.
    They tested, re-tested, fixed and tested yet again. By the time the aircraft took its first commercial flight, many people had actually already flown inside it, under many different conditions.
    Building a quality website requires similar pre-release testing. There is no second chance for the first customer impression. Your product has to work correctly from the first upload on the server. Every AlexxDesign's product will be thoroughly examined and tested prior to launch.

  • The best castle in the world needs ongoing maintenance.
    Light-bulbs dim, plaster slips, carpets fade. Similarly, a website needs ongoing support. Technology can change, ISPs go bankrupt, customer demands evolve.
