If your business depends on your website it must be responsive

Responsive web design from Navega Bem

If your company doesn’t have a responsive web site today, then you may have a serious problem.

Of course if you have a mobile app that your potential clients can use, then you are safe. But if you don’t have an app and you think your ageing web site is adequate then you may want to read the following very carefully.

Just a year ago perhaps 30% of your potential customers were using tablets or smartphones to at least try and view your website. That’s not very easy to do because older websites are difficult to view and navigate. Constantly zooming in and out and finding links to other pages is really user unfriendly. And the smaller the device the bigger a pain that becomes.

Today more than 58% of consumers accessing the internet do so on a mobile device. That means everything has changed about what your website was developed for. Today you absolutely require a ‘responsive‘ website.
You should also be aware that more technology is on the way such as emerging mobile devices like Smartwatches.

So what is a responsive website? –Well, a responsive website will adapt to display gracefully on desktop computers, tablets, smartphones and other devices.  A responsive website looks great and is user friendly no matter whether you’re looking at it on a phone, tablet, or desktop.

Having a responsive website gives you a great advantage because you only need update your website from one single place and you don’t present your potential customers with the obstacle of having to download an app.

There is simply no better option available for creating a cost effective, user friendly website that works everywhere – especially because you don’t know what new devices are around the corner or what size and resolution they will be.

Contact us at Navega Bem Web Design or request a proposal to learn more about our highly affordable ‘responsive’ websites that are developed around the Joomla CMS framework. Sites that you can manage yourself – without technical knowhow.

Europe’s Leading Design Hotel – The Vine

Hotel the Vine - Madeira

World Travel Awards Winner ‘The Vine’ has launched its new website amid a flurry of activity that saw major events unfolding at this amazing design hotel located in the heart of the capital city Funchal on Madeira island.

A blend of international mastery and local knowledge are well expressed in the building architecture by Ricardo Bofill and João Francisco Caires, creatively “bottled” by the local interior designer Nini Andrade Silva.

Christmas and New Year festivities interlaced with the full occupancy and the much sought after dining tables in the restaurants left the site launch discreetly tucked away in the background. But launch it did and is now available to take reservations online. Make sure you book your stay in the Vine hotel in plenty of time to avoid disappointment!

The attractive website was created by the professional Hotel Website Design and Development Agency Navega Bem.
Creative Director Chris Szabo explained “Inspired by the centenary tradition of the island famous vineyards and artisan fortified wines, this hotel tells you a story about soil, pebbles, rain, sunshine and shadows all in perfect balance, just like an exceptional wine.”

“The creative process to reflect the wonderful concept of the hotel was initially quite radical and we spent considerable time sculpting the user interface to immerse visitors into a virtual experience identical to a physical stay.
Towards the end of the design phase we did tone things down subtly in order to create a yearning for the real experience.”

“The site has been developed around the Joomla! CMS framework and is fully ‘responsive’, meaning that the website will adapt to display on any device in a user friendly manner. Additionally, as it is a ‘Content Management System‘ the Vine hotel staff can fully manage their website without any outside help. Of course we are always there to support them if they require additional functionality.”
