Our Photography services
The Zookx digital photography department can offer you cutting edge, vibrant and visually exciting photographic services.
The roles of developer and designer frequently overlap in web design, some people can indeed perform both roles. A loose description of the roles are:
Web designer: A web designer creates the style and look of the web site, producing the graphics, buttons and images within the site. Most, if not all, web designers will be able to create a basic website.
Web developer: A web developer creates and programs the code for websites that require more complex functions. Websites with online shops or that contain searchable databases of information for example.
Zookx began creating web sites for clients local to us but we now have many clients based across the whole of the UK.
We find this happens as word of mouth tends to spread and as our clients have recommended us to their contacts the area we cover has grown and grown.
By using email and the telephone, we've found it perfectly possible to communicate effectively with clients without the need for a face to face meeting. view the websites we have completed geographically.
The time frame is determined by the size of your web site, the complexity of your site and its design, and also our current schedule.
There are quite a few factors that are going to affect the cost of your web site.
These factors include how many pages you are going to have, if you want to sell products on your website, how interactive your web site will need to be and the style and graphic work involved.
You will also need web hosting and domain name registration.
A professional looking Web site is more important than you think. People who visit your site will most likely make a snap decision about whether to work with you or buy from you based on what they see.
We'll happily take a look and tell you our opinion, simply fill in our enquiry form here.
Google offer a list of guidelines to webmasters and designers which we follow as a basic part of our web design service.
Modern search engines also like to find your site through links to your site from other websites. Google especially relies on your incoming links to determine your place in its results. We always advise our clients on the best practices of optimising their site and the best way to get results from the popular search engines.
A domain name is a specific web site address that you can buy and is used to point visitors to your website.
Our domain name is "zookx.com".
Maintenance is the work involves to update your website with new content and items. Most good web sites have new content updated regularly, fresh content will keep your visitors coming back.
This depends on how you are going to use and market your domain name.
If you are going to be telling people over the phone, choose one that is easy to say and simple to spell. With the number of available domains becoming less and less it can be difficult to find the 'right' name. We're happy for you to contact us to advise you of what might be the right domain name for your business.
The easiest way for us to transfer the text you send us into your Web Site is by sending it in an eMail in plain ASCII text.
Plain text attachments are also good. (Note Pad .txt document ect.) If you are sending copy for several Web Pages at the same time, please make clear in the file what text is for which page. And We'd as that you please make sure that all your text has been spell checked before sending to us.
Back in the old days of slow internet connections, the web browser cache was invented to store visited web pages and images on your computer, So the next time you visit that same web page on the internet you will in fact only be seeing an old version of that page from your own computer. The problem with this is that if the web page content has changed since your previous visit, you won't see it.
In Internet Explorer on PC, simply hit [F5] to force reload your browser.
In Firefox on PC, simply hit [Ctrl+R] to force reload your browser.
In AOL on PC, simply hold down the [Ctrl] key and click the AOL browser Reload icon to force reload your browser.
On Macs, simply hit [Cmd+R] to force reload any Mac browser.
Most print designs don't work that well for web pages, We could make the whole page a graphical image exactly like your printed page but large, full page, graphics take a long time to load, search engines can't see them, and they will typically be frustrating to navigate for the customer browsing.
If you are happy with your current catalog/brochure then the main design elements can normally be incorporated into a website design with no problem at all.
It has been our experience that it is usually easier, more cost effective and produces better results for our clients if we create a website based on their print catalog (for example) instead of trying to create a design exactly like the printed piece.
You can but it is generally not in your best interest. Loading many large images on the same web page takes more time and bandwidth than the average site visitor will want to spend when accessing your site. We recommend that you design your site with the the lowest common denominator in mind and spread images out over several pages when possible for fast loading.
Your site most likely will be visible to mobile phone users, however their experience of viewing it will vary greatly depending on the phone and website type. If you want to be sure your clients, customers and views can access their site with a mobile phone we recommend adding an additional 'mobile' are to your site. This area is coded specifically to be mobile phone friendly, containing only the essential information from your site. You can view the Zookx 'Mobile' website here.
