Long Live Full Stack – Why We Don’t Use Drupal

Client-Focused With decades of experience in the custom website design and the online agency world, the Webheads team are adept at designing and deploying websites with multiple different software packages. However we always keep in mind the full client journey with our work and consider what the end user of the website backend will be able to do in terms of ongoing website management after their custom website is live. In this regard, we have found that Drupal is too complex and rigid for those with no / little knowledge of website backends (even after being given training and a handover). It seriously lacks in basic user friendliness – especially compared to […]

Pantone’s 2020 Colour and Website Design

To begin, ‘Classic Blue’ instantly denotes a tone of being perfectly plain, traditional and (like the name suggests) classic. This brings with it a sense of comfort, familiarity and calm. Especially compared to the more vibrant (and arguably controversial) Pantone colour of 2019 which was ‘Living Coral’. But in the vein of website design, shades of blue are hugely prevalent throughout already. Take for example how most links within text are presented – in a classic blue colour (that turns purple) after you click on them. Even our very own logo incorporates a shade of blue. Such is the universal appeal of this primary colour that it can seamlessly work in a […]

Your 2020 Website Checklist

Mobile First Arguably gone are the days where ‘mobile responsive’ was the buzz word surrounding website design. Now it is all about mobile first – meaning that websites should ideally be designed with the mobile user first and foremost in mind. The metrics and studies compound these conclusions, with recurring reports consistently showing that websites are accessed the majority of the time on mobile devices. So as part of your 2020 website checklist, make sure that your website is designed with this mobile focused mentality and not simply tweaked to simply ‘work’ on mobile devices. Rather, it should be made for them. Webheads can help with our custom website design services that […]

Exploring UX with Facebook

Designed to make using Facebook both simpler and faster, it presents the user with a more slick-looking and spacious interface that looks more in line with it’s Messenger app. Updated navigational features are also part of the refresh – with certain icons redesigned and buttons and tabs moved to new places for ease of use. While the core functionality of Facebook remains the same; their refreshed design takes into account modern UX trends and practices in order to be attuned to their mobile first audience and to remain in line with user expectations in terms of their experience and journey when using Facebook. As you can see with the image above, there […]

Application Programme Interfacting (API) Work at Webheads

Like the name suggests, application programme interfacing (API) works by bringing in an external element and linking it to your website in a truly seamless and effective interface. For example, we have worked with the likes of the Eiffel Tower and Harry Potter studio tours to implement a ticket purchasing system which integrates booking software onto their websites. This links up with their availability calendars and also brings in the likes of package deals, different pricing structures per age or day etc. and even special offers and VIP options to offer website visitors a range of options. In tandem with this, it can also block off days and adapt as needed to […]

Celebrating Lewis Hamilton’s Six-Time F1 Championship Win

A shining example of a British sports star on the world stage, we also feel a sense of community pride as he was born and bred in Hertfordshire as we were too! Over the course of his glittering career, which shows no signs of slowing down, he has acted as a shining beacon of British sportsmanship all around the world. Now with earning his sixth Formula 1 world championship title, he continues to inspire the current and next generation of motorsport athletes. We here at Webheads […]

Seo Practices Still Relevant in 2019

Page Loading Times This has a huge impact on SEO overall as site speed is seen as a majorly beneficial factor when it comes to offering website visitors a great user experience (UX) when they interact with your brand online. There are many ways to achieve this – such as by compressing images so that they are not large file sizes, limiting / optimising the amount of plugins in use and even considering the likes of a dedicated server to have your website safeguarded in a space unaffected by others. Google recognises websites with great site speeds (and even offers a tool to assess it) and due to this fact – along […]

Using Colours in Business Branding

Kinetix Nutrition Offering gym and nutritional supplements and a wealth of information and tips in their ‘Knowledge Vault’, the custom website design for Kinetix Nutrition required a constant element to bind each of these aspects together. Working with their logo, a grey tone was chosen to act both as a neutral and bridging colour for these elements; while also working to channel the steel and metal of gym equipment like weights and machines. As such, it served as a great example of using colours in business branding. With this, colour was used cleverly to serve a dual purpose of aligning the brand while also alluding to what space and industry the brand […]

The Instagram Creator Studio

Planning Your Posts Arguably one of the most useful features of the Instagram Creator Studio is the ability to schedule posts ahead of time (just like can be done on Facebook). Note however that it does not allow you to visually plan a series of posts in a calendar format like some software does. Rather you can plan individual posts as you need which is useful when planning a post to launch a sale or event etc. This frees up your time in that you don’t have to physically be using the app in order to keep fresh content being posted to it. To remove this task from your workload completely, get […]
