State of Mobile

  • Aalysis of shopping data from Q4 2015 demonstrates that mobile leaders grew their share of transactions faster than average in a world where mobile devices are at the center of the connected consumer.
  • Top retailers see double the growth in mobile’s share of transactions, widening the gap with average retailers in the space.
  • Nearly four-in-ten transactions occurred on multiple devices and were completed on a mobile device almost a third of the time.
  • Dedicated shopping apps dwarf the mobile web at all points on the path to purchase, from browsing products to the sale itself.
  • Japan, UK and South Korea continue to lead the globe in mobile transactions, and smartphones are driving that growth.

Squarespace Design and Setup

Your website is the most important piece of real estate you will ever own, use it wisely. Whether you are designing a Squarespace website from scratch or looking to re-vamp your existing Squarespace site, our designers are here to help you achieve your desired goal.

First impressions are lasting impressions, and your website is often the first impression your customers or clients have about you and your business, so don't blow it.

Our website design methodology:

  • Planning the website - Define exactly what you need. One size fits all does not work.
  • Define the purpose - What are you trying to accomplish?
  • Audience recognition - Who is your end user? Design and Usability impact different audiences in different ways.
  • Content is key - Display content according to users needs.
  • Usability - is key, we use the KISS approach "Keep it Simple Stupid".
  • Planning documentation - Visually planning the website, taking into account the above mentioned.

You wouldn't build a house without a blue print would you? A blue print for a website is known as a requirements document - a good game plan will save you not only precious time during design but also prepare you for a successful website launch.

What do usability consultants do?

Usability consultants work with designers and developers to look at how a product meets user needs so that they can improve the product to enhance productivity, increase user satisfaction, and minimize user errors.

If usability consultants are brought in before a website or software product is created, they can help developers achieve more consistently usable results. This is the preferred model for development, as usability can be built into the system rather than tacked on at the end. Usability is not about making an interface pretty. It encompasses issues such as information architecture, design, writing, and quality assurance. Usability needs to delve beyond surface elements. Still, if the consultants are brought in after production, they can evaluate the usability of a website or software product using one or more usability evaluation methods.

Usability consultants usually offer such services as needs analysis, usability evaluation (often through expert critique or usability testing), user interface design, and usability training.

What are the benefits of hiring a consultant?

  • Increasing the usability of a website or software product will raise productivity.
  • Bringing a usability consultant into the design and production process will reduce costs in the long run, since it is more cost effective to build a usable product than to repair an unusable one.
  • Doing a less-than-thorough job can cost more than money; it can cost you in time and customers.
  • They can evaluate systems more efficiently because they know what to look out for based on their experience with a wide range of systems.
  • They can offer perspectives that those close to a project may not have considered.
  • It is difficult to be objective about your own site.
  • Consultants are trained in a range of usability evaluation methods. They may offer an advantage by knowing which method is the best for your particular project.
  • Having a usable product will result in more satisfied and productive users.
