Web Development

photography studio web designToday it’s hard to imagine a world without the Internet, and yet that was pretty much the case just 15 years ago! The growth of global digital communications means that websites are now available on every subject under the sun – and beyond. Today everyone and their dog has a website and whether you run a seafood restaurant in Milton Keynes or want to pay tribute to your favourite Spice Girl you’ll want to create a presence on the world wide web. A great website needs to look good, function well and offer the user an intuitive experience by being simple to view and easy to navigate. Another important consideration is responsive web design as more people now access sites using mobile devices. So you’ll want your web pages to look fantastic on every available platform.

The technology behind the web…

In the early 1980s Tim Berners-Lee, while working at CERN, the European Laboratory for Particle Physics, created a database with hypertext links for international scientists to share information. On 30 April 1993 CERN put the World Wide Web software in the public domain so that people were free to develop its potential.

 

A short history of website design:

In the early 1980s Tim Berners-Lee working at CERN, the European Laboratory for Particle Physics, created a database with hypertext links as a way for international scientists to share information. On 30 April 1993 CERN put the World Wide Web software in the public domain so that people were free to develop its potential. In keeping with its origins, the early adopters of the world wide web were primarily university-based scientific departments or physics laboratories. By January 1993 there were fifty web servers across the world while by October 1993 there were over five hundred. By the mid 1990s many larger companies felt that a web presence was no longer optional. Increasing familiarity with web-based communications led directly to instant global communications, e-commerce and the rise of website design. Graphic designers with a technical bent soon saw the opportunities for their creative skills in this new medium. The world of web design and e-marketing had begun with bright new ways of communicating via websites, email and social media.
