Web Design & Development

A successful website build relies on the seamless marriage of design and development. Once designed in photoshop, said designs are sliced into components that are ordered by front end code, i.e. HTML and CSS. The front end code is then called into action by the back end code, the admin panel- usually written in PHP. The end result is what the user sees and interacts with.

Many web design companies rely solely on pre-made templates- usually made in Wordpress. Sometimes Big Orange Planet takes this approach also, generally speaking when the budget is low. However we prefer custom builds using the framework we created with our international partners called Stempora. This approach allows us to build and program whatever is needed from the site specifications, without relying on any external sources. The system is very powerful, very flexible and immune to the hacking attacks that plague the Wordpress environment.

Branding

Brands are ubiquitous and all around us all the time. Creation of a brand from scratch has many facets, starting always with the logo, which effectively defines the brand- color scheme, font type, overall message. Logos can be simple or complex, but both can be very effective, for example the Nike 'tick' is known as one of the most recognizable logos on the planet, yet is very simple.

Once a logo is fully approved the rest of the brand can then be created. This potentially includes business cards, a website, signage, stationery, truck decals, company reports etc. Of course the elements  need to be cohesive across all mediums. An optimal delivery of these elements puts you well on the way to awareness, recognition, and trust.

Graphic Design

Graphic Design is often confused with branding, but they are 2 different discilplines (though definitely intertwined). A quality graphic designer should be highly proficient in a variety of design programs. He or she should be more than comfortable in such areas as:

  • Preparing and sending items to print
  • Generating high end logos and graphics in illustrator
  • Ability to produce an infinite number of variations of print collateral
  • Use of advanced photo editing tools in photoshop
  • Being fully up to speed on trending styles
  • Having full understanding of how to design for the web on the bootstrap framework

Our graphic design team possess all these qualities and many more.

Animation

Eye catching animation engages and impresses its audience, which in turn lead to a high level of credibility been generated. People like to look at pretty things and style counts. Its always important to animate subtly and smoothly as opposed to “in your face”. Our company began animating in the days when Adobe Flash was king, constructing many websites made purely in Flash. With the inexorable rise of the smartphone, Flash was forced to leave the scene, as it couldn't work on them.

Since then we have progressed with the flow, for some time using HTML5 and javascript. These days we animate purely in After Effects which we then convert to what's called a .json file. The end result is an animation with any movement we can imagine, that weighs almost nothing from a file size perspective.

SEO

Google can in today's world be your friend or your enemy. Not in a personal sense of course, it is after all a machine, a very big machine composed of multiple algorithmns. As time has gone on Google has gotten ever better at weeding out 'spammy' sites and delivering the very best results for any query.(so they can make even more money from paid advertising)

It uses both onsite and offsite factors in its machinations to decide who ranks where. Offsite factors are essentially inbound links to your website from credible sources. If they think you're important then you probably are.

Onsite indicators include a range of factors such as site load speed, mobile compatibility level, how long the site has been around, and many more. In fact Google is estimated to run more than 400 different algorithmns. The other key component onsite is of course content- “what's this page about and how valuable is it to the searcher versus the 1.5 million other pages that reference this search term?”

At Big Orange Planet we have long years of SEO experience and can help you achieve your goals.

Video

Our team produces videos, by and large for the web. Its just a fact that folks move fast through web pages, nobody is likely to read all your content..However video is a great way to impart your message and hold your viewers' attention. People will absolutely watch a well put together and informing video through to the end. Consumption of video content online continually increase and has done for years. Likewise the volume of videos online rises exponentially.

Our designers have high proficiency in Adobe After Effects (the core of video production), and our firm loves producing video projects for our clients. Integration into a web page with zero load time and flawless execution is of course the other key component.
