A new website was created for T Cosgrove Plumbing and Heating based in Clarkston Glagow.
They offer a varied and comprehensive service and installation of all gas appliances and a plumbing service to cover most plumbing emergencies.
The website has a smartphone friendly design which is modern and accessible. My initial design had the headings with too light a colour which failed at WCAG 2.1 AA level, but this was fixed by darkening the font and now passes the WCAG 2.1 AA criteria.
Please visit Tony’s website(external website) if you are in the Greater Glasgow area and require any plumbing or heating services.
Shree Boutique Hair and Beauty Salon are based in Bearsden near Glasgow.
A responsive design was one of their main requirements to enable smartphone browsing clients to view their services easily.
Adobe Illustrator enabled me to create a new logo for the business based on ideas they had suggested. Choosing the font was crucial and my client had a certain look in mind. I also had to use the pen tool to create the Shree icon.
The site was created using Dreamweaver utilising Bootstrap for efficient responsiveness. CSS3 was used extensively in creating the look and feel of the website.
Asset Environmental are an established family business specialising in drainage issues including unblocking drains, sinks, toilets
I used Dreamweaver to create the website and added in a Bootstrap menu for full responsive and device compliance. I also used Fireworks to come up with some colour blends. I then extracted the CSS from the Fireworks blend and added the code to the CSS file in Dreamweaver.
Phablet devices are becoming increasingly popular. They are devices with a 5 – 6.9 inch screen which is larger than a Smartphone but smaller than a Tablet. I think they are too bulky for my liking but if you want just one device instead of two then I can see why more people are opting for these devices. They certainly look a bit bizarre when someone is using the phone on their phablet to call someone.
I have designed a number of websites using various responsive web design techniques. They all ultimately respond to different screen sizes that users have. Responsive design is also known as fluid or liquid web design.
Here is a site I finished recently for Just Done It Medals. Try to view the website on various devices from Smartphone to PC.
