Some agencies specialise in “front-end” development, others “back-end”. We’re experts in both. We create beautifully crafted responsive HTML and CSS but we can also integrate it with business systems.
Beautiful websites are more than just skin deep. At Headscape we firmly believe that the user interfaces for beautiful websites should be implemented in ways that are flexible and use modern best practice.
This, of course, doesn’t mean that your site will look identical in every browser. Older browsers simply can’t offer the same experience as more modern browsers so there will be aesthetic differences in presentation between, say, IE8 and Firefox.
We’ve got a great track record of creating websites that deliver exceptional user experience on touchscreen and mobile devices as well as desktop.
We’ve been designing and coding responsive user interfaces for years. Everything we build these days is responsive.
We create pattern libraries (sometimes referred to as a GEL: Global Experience Language) and repositories of design elements. A pattern library is a collection of design elements that appear multiple times across a site. Typical examples might include:
- Form elements
- Social media features
- News listings
- Related links
A pattern library, documents all of these ‘patterns’ (also often known as modules) and defines how they behave, what they look like and how they are coded.
We have a dedicated team of developers who specialise in bringing rich functionality to the websites we work on. Working using a range of languages including PHP and .net we have:
- Developed websites on the Drupal platform.
- Developed website on the WordPress platform
- Developed complex bespoke ecommerce solutions that integrate closely with backend fulfilment, accounting and CRM systems.
- Integrated websites with third party applications such as CRM systems and SAP.
- Utilised powerful functionality provided by third party APIs. This includes extensive experience integrating Google Maps, Multimap, EventBrite, Yahoo Pipes, Twitter, Facebook and Dropbox into many customer websites.
