Information architecture is the science — some would insist art — of defining the structure, organization, navigation, labeling and indexing of a Website. It is the role of the information architect to decide how a site should be structured, what kind of content it should host, and how to accommodate future growth. In short, information architecture defines the backbone of a Website.
It all started with Responsive Web Design, an article by Ethan Marcotte on A List Apart. Essentially, the article proposed addressing the ever-changing landscape of devices, browsers, screen sizes and orientations by creating flexible, fluid and adaptive Web sites. Instead of responding to today’s needs for a desktop Web version adapted to the most common screen resolution, along with a particular mobile version (often specific to a single mobile device), the idea is to approach the issue the other way around: use flexible and fluid layouts that adapt to almost any screen.
HomePage Remedy is a brand driven Web Design Company. Establishing and further developing your company’s brand identity for the Web and online media is our key focus and interest. Our focus is to establish concept and identity that can be carried through the entire site, building a consistent visual presence and brand message for the Web and preferably across all media.
The planning phase is the most important part of the process and lays down the foundation in which the entire project is built from. It's especially important in an agile process because it can change the scope and depth of a project based on what is found.
If you're not familiar with the concept of an agile workflow, it essentially means that you break a project up in such a way that will allow you to quickly and easily adapt to changes. This will allow you to have the best possible final product because you are able to continuously adapt and change.
For a user to understand a website they must be able to understand how the website works. This affects their experience. User experience is related to layout, clear instructions and labeling on a website. The user must understand how they can interact on a site. In relation to continued use, a user must perceive the usefulness of that website if they are to continue using it. With users who are skilled and well versed with website use, this influence relates directly to how they perceive websites, which encourages further use. Therefore users with less experience are less likely to see the advantages or usefulness of websites. This in turn should focus, on design for a more universal use and ease of access to accommodate as many users as possible regardless of user skill.
The developmental stage is the point where the web site itself is created. At this time, we will take all of the individual graphic elements from the prototype and use them to create the actual, functional site.
Once you give HomePage Remedy final approval, it is time to deliver the site. An FTP (File Transfer Protocol) program is used to upload the web site files to your server. At this time the site should be put through one last run-through. This is just precautionary, to confirm that all files have been uploaded correctly, and that the site continues to be fully functional.

As we move further into the 21st century, Internet technologies are becoming an essential part of our personal and professional lives. For business owners, having an online presence is almost mandatory if they want to stay ahead of the competition. What is more, having a site created by a professional website design agency can in fact boost marketing and sales strategies in ways that would not be possible otherwise.
In the first place, professional websites can increase the visibility of a business, blog, or organization. In turn, increased visibility will multiply the chances of attracting potential customers or followers. And needless to say, more customers translate into higher revenues, particularly because having a website allows 24/7 access to customers.
