The Importance of Responsive Design

CMH-mockup-480x480With the majority of internet searches now initiating from mobile devices, responsive design is more important than ever. Responsive design allows your site to self-adjust to adequately fit mobile devices and tablets. Sites appear differently to users depending on how they are accessed – whether by a mobile device, tablet or laptop.  Without responsive design, customers can experience trouble while navigating the web on handheld devices, and features of websites can even become distorted.  These issues can heavily impact users and deter customers from visiting you online.  At OmniSpear,  we pride ourselves on our focus on responsive design.  As a standard, our sites are all optimized for the best viewing capabilities on phones and tablets.  We make sure your site looks its best no matter how customers get there.

Fresh New Look for Melink

melink-mock

Melink is an energy solutions company that strives to make building construction greener with a focus on integrity and innovation.  For this project, our team was tasked with providing an overhaul to the main company pages, as well as microsite for their product, Intelli-hood.  These sites represent two separate domains (www.melinkcorp.com & www.intellihood.com) but are seamlessly combined into a single overall theme.  The sleeker design makes it simple to jump from site to site, while remaining in the company’s overall vision and branding.  Each webpage is also responsive with clean layouts for easy navigation.  We are proud of the redesign and think Melink has a fresh face forward as they continue to expand.

A Recap of Laracon 2016

ZeevOmniSpear was thrilled to attend the 2016 Laracon event in Louisville, KY last week!  There were a number of great speakers and a packed house of eager web developers and business owners absorbing the latest information on Laravel and connecting PHP to business practices.  From the  web application demonstration by Adam Wathan (an area we particularly enjoy building for our clients) to unique history of the framework by Zeev Suraski (pictured here), we had a wonderful time collaborating with fellow IT and web businesses from across the states.  We are looking forward to next year’s event!

Laravel is quickly becoming an effective tool for developing PHP applications. As a framework that embraces best-practices and modern development workflows, our team has utilized Laravel in a variety of projects.

New Look for Dr. Randal Haworth

HaworthFeaturedImageDr. Randal Haworth of Beverly Hills is one of the world’s most experienced plastic surgeons. We have been working with Dr. Haworth on a number of website makeovers and various sites for his products, including NightLift sleep lingerie.  For his main site’s latest revision, Dr. Haworth wanted us to utilize a sleek and modern layout, with seamless transitions between surgical procedures.  The result is a responsive site using a minimalist design. Customers can easily navigate beyond surgical procedure overviews, down to patient testimonials, examples of work and details for each procedure.
We love the update!  https://www.drhaworth.com/
