When it comes to website development, navigation plays a crucial role in ensuring a seamless user experience.

Our approach to navigation design revolves around simplicity and clarity. We carefully craft menus and graphical links that are intuitive and easy to understand, ensuring that users can quickly find the information they need. By organising content into logical categories and subcategories, we help users locate relevant pages and navigate through your website with ease.

We also prioritise accessibility in our navigation design. We adhere to web accessibility standards, ensuring that individuals with disabilities can navigate your website using assistive technologies. We implement proper heading structures, provide alternative text for graphical links, and ensure keyboard accessibility, allowing all users to access and interact with your website’s navigation elements.

To create better navigation, we employ techniques such as dropdown menus, breadcrumb navigation, and search functionality. Dropdown menus provide a hierarchical view of your website’s content, allowing users to explore different sections effortlessly.

To view a selection of our portfolio – see further down this page.

Breadcrumb navigation helps users understand their current location within the website’s hierarchy and provides a convenient way to navigate back to previous pages. Additionally, our search functionality enables users to quickly find specific information by entering relevant keywords.

By implementing these strategies, we aim to enhance the overall user experience of your website. Our goal is to create a navigation system that is both visually appealing and functional, providing visitors with a smooth and intuitive journey through your website’s pages.

We are a Leading Local Government Parish and Town Council Website provider.
