Websites that Work
Latest Standards-Compliant Websites
All OnSight websites are standards-compliant and avoid Flash or any temporary trends; even some early-days legacy projects which haven't been upgraded still work on tablets & smartphones!
Even when loading high-res retina images, our technology optimises the load time while still maintaining the page layout & visuals; no jumping content or scrollbars! In addition, the system intelligently & automatically decides whether retina images are necessary based not just on a device's display capability, but also on a combination of screen size & internet connection speed.
All OnSight websites are SEO-Friendly and contain automatic tagging and optimisation; our photography websites read image captions directly from the EXIF information, and we can customise our CMS to further enhance the search-engine response to your specific business needs.
Our websites use unique lazy load technology which intelligently preloads images just before the user scrolls to them; we have also completed many sites where the layout on a mobile or tablet version is significantly different, but still retains the core design features.
Simply pick where an image, video or news item or offer should go, and the SiteShell does the rest! No duplication of work, fiddling with media libraries or adding content to both galleries & blogs. You can even update a third-party platform like YouTube or Daft and your site will update - automatically!
We consult with, and work with, the client to get the perfect combination of what they want and need. We can customise your Content Management System (CMS) to make updating as easy as possible. After all, while updating your site is a necessity, you don't want it to occupy a whole day every week!
Do you have an innovative idea or custom requirement? We've developed multiple innovative eCommerce shops & workflow systems, not to mention apps; we've even had two apps patented! We love those challenges, and have delivered time and time again.
