  • Luke Williams - The Young Gun - Active Webdezign
    internal sites and developing and rolling out new features a job I would not have had a hope of getting had I not already had 12 months commercial experience at Active Webdezign After University I was lucky enough to get a fantastic job at Forward in Camden a real technology driven company which an incredible amount of smart developers I learnt a ridiculous amount in my first 6 months including Ruby Node js using AWS deployment and operating at a huge scale with big data Again the most important factor for me getting the job was my wealth of experience gained so far despite being only 21 at the time Tell us a fun anecdote from your time as a senior programmer at Webdezign I have many fond memories of that year in Woodside Park particular the great chats we used to have around lunch time In terms of clients I pushed to use WordPress as our primary CMS pretty much as soon as I got to Webdezign so I learnt the idiosyncrasies of the platform pretty sharpish as I had to lead development on most of these projects Caribbean Unpackaged was a milestone for me as well as it was the first project I spec ed out the work and built a custom PHP application What was your favourite lunch Thats a tough one but I reckon it has to be Lahore in Hendon Delicious and spicy food every friday kept me coming back even after I d left for uni A special mention has to go the Vietnamese place under the Arts Depot in Finchley always loved the Pho there Editors note Pho phonetically Fah is no longer on the lunch menu as Khoai has unfortunately closed down What was the 1 single lesson you took away from your time at Webdezign I think the biggest takeaway I d take from my time at Active Webdezign is how different the commercial side of web development is from open source or just tinkering on your own Its not an easy task to balance personal satisfaction in what you are developing with keeping the clients goals in mind The other thing I think it taught me starting out in my professional career is working well with a team be it the project manager or designer making sure there is a lot of transparency in what is happening Do you have an unforgettable moment from your time at Webdezign Christmas Social 2007 at Belgos Such a fantastic night for myself Garry Pete and Mike full of laughs drinking and great food The next day was a brilliant scene where I dragged myself in late Pete was apparently fine Garry never turned up and Mike came in for about 10 minutes before deciding it was all too much and going home Editors note Mike has no recollection of this ever taking place so it must be a mistake How did you find choose Webdezign in the first place I found it initially

  • London web design benefit from London based development
    websites or code them as required in fact this was a very specialised and sparse skill that was only just beginning to emerge in the London web design arena For this reason we had little option but to use some external services predominately in India and overseas development at the time was one avenue that could be explored to deliver fairly priced systems with enough functionality for the client s needs Cheap is often more expensive Of course our needs were soon to exceed the skills and capabilities that outsourced companies could offer due to their lack of expertise and the mentality many companies had with keeping up with the emerging trends and technologies Being the perfectionists that we are and striving to be at the forefront of web design we found this all very frustrating Once we started to find quality issues a general lack of communication and understanding from our suppliers and an overall laissez faire attitude to how we wanted to move forward we decided it was unacceptable for ourselves and our clients Design in London by Londoners Inevitably we made the decision to produce all our website developments exclusively in house at our London web design headquarters taking up new larger offices along with highly skilled permanent staff This has proven to be a great success as the majority of our clients return to us to upgrade or change the look and feel of their sites and we are happy to say regularly recommend us to their contacts It just proves that when you deliver a quality service you will be remembered Designing websites in house was the best way to ensure our future growth We like to think that our web design services in London may be the most cost effective way you can choose

  • We are utilising responsive design! - Active Webdezign
    a web design agency we are responsible for creating websites that are available to view for everyone whether they are using a mobile laptop or any other device and to achieve that flexibility is the key Responsive design what is that Instead of creating a new website version for every different device that exists we can work on making the information itself to be flexible and not the outside form of the website That is where responsive architecture comes in it s introducing a set of techniques and ideas that make website adjust itself to fit the browser comfortably even if you make the page as skinny as the resolution of a mobile phone The best way would be to try it yourselves If you are using a laptop or a PC we are inviting you to click on the corner of your browser window and drag it through the monitor You can see that the website s content is now intelligent on its own and it will resize the images change the resolution and adjust itself to the size that you choose If you are using your iPhone then flip it vertically or horizontally and you can see that all the content is loaded logically and it fits your device perfectly you don t have to scroll horizontally any more From now on weather you are using a PC laptop iPhone iPad Kindle or any other device you will always get the same results So you are probably asking yourself why the sudden change Before we used to create a new website version for every different device separately but because the number of new devices grows so fast and different screen sizes come with it it s getting near to impossible to follow all the changes The responsive design
