Designing great websites, for great brands
Websites designed by TurnRound have real impact, are easy to use with exciting content and user involvement. All our sites are developed in the UK from our studio situated in the beautiful Gloucestershire countryside.
TurnRound produce engaging videos and interactive content for both online and offline projects – such as iPads and larger exhibition touch screen systems. Offline projects include touch-screen programming for retail, public information displays, exhibitions, as well as award-winning media-rich DVDs and Blu-ray discs.
User-friendly website design
Our multimedia background means we understand what really works on-screen. We’ve been designing user interfaces and programs for years. Our experience in games development, video production and broadcast animation gives us the skills to create exciting interfaces that provide a clear pathway to the information you and your clients need.
We can create web pages that convey information clearly and entertainingly using complex, dynamic images and appropriate text, rather than relying on static images.
Smartphone enabled responsive web design
Does your website reflect consumers’ needs, both at home and on the move? Your smartphone website needs to be fast, easy to use and above all visible on a small screen!
Smartphone users expect to be able to buy that last minute gift, find a hotel, book a hair appointment or find your business, in fact, there are thousands of opportunities for your site to engage with customers while they’re on the move! And it doesn’t have to be an app!
What happens when customers visit a smartphone-enabled web site on their phone? Simple, as they enter a responsive website from a smartphone, the site automatically detects that they are a mobile user and seamlessly reformats pages to a tablet and mobile friendly version. The menu and interface are simplified and easier to use with your finger tips rather than a mouse.
Surfing the web on a mobile device is becoming second nature
We can even make finding your locations easy too, with Google Maps integration.
We’ll work with you to identify what your mobile customers needs would be from your smartphone site, liaise with your technical and marketing teams to see what’s possible and understand your target audience. Then, analysis of your existing website content would take place. We can convert this information into smaller chunks targeted at mobile users – designed to look great on small screens. Above all, navigation will be simplicity at its best and the site easy to view.
Enrich your website with video and animation
Let us create a media-rich website that streams video material to engage and capture visitors to your site, before they click elsewhere!
High-speed fibre and 4G networks, are allowing viewers to watch a continuous stream of full motion video via their computer screen, smartphone, or tablet whenever they access your website.
TurnRound websites exploit our new multimedia world; see product videos, corporate or PR film, TV ads, product news – even short films featuring animation, comedy and music – all perfectly integrated into your site design.
If a picture’s worth a thousand words, think how powerful a moving image must be
Are you exploiting the power of video?
Online Advertising – Pay per click
Running your own Google AdWords or Bing pay-per-click (PPC) campaign needn’t be daunting. At TurnRound we can help you get the most out your marketing budgets, help you target keywords, develop ads, localise your campaign and make sure landing pages and website design are optimised to generate more business!
Social media advertising with Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn offers a great way to engage with existing and potential customers. Social media ads can be targeted at users by interest, demographic, education and location. This makes it ideal for brand awareness campaigns, niche targeting or even focussed on consumers who are fans of competitor’s brands.
We’re committed to generating the best-targeted leads whatever your business or your budget.
Delivering information quickly and effectively is a must for any website
Bespoke design, not just templates
It’s no longer enough simply to have a page on the web. Your website is your shop window to the world, and, whilst it doesn’t need to be big budget, it needs to impress from the start. We know clients have differing needs, so we taylor our services accordingly, and build the website that you want. We look at your aims and objectives for the web, then offer advice and solutions. It may be a helping hand in rebranding an existing website, or a total rethink of your corporate image and web strategies; or pointing you in the right direction to an organisation who could help with your order processing software. This is before we even start work on the site.
New technologies, with traditional skills
The internet is rapidly becoming more animated and interactive, with streaming video becoming the norm; our experience and contacts in video and animation production could give your organisation’s site a real edge.
We understand how people interact with computers
Happy users = more traffic and greater profits too. Is your site moving on?
TurnRound’s sites are bespoke – not template-based, so a face-to-face meeting is always a good start. An understanding of your needs is the cornerstone of successful web site development. We have listed below what would be useful to cover in the first briefing.
The web design process – working with TurnRound
What we would like to know:
- what does the site need to communicate?
- what is its focus; reference, e-commerce, or promotional?
- who is your target audience, and what will they want from the site?
- who are your competitors?
- how does it fit into your new or existing communications strategy?
- technical considerations; do you have existing web hosting, domain names?
- would it benefit from animation, specialist graphics or video?
- when do you want it?
- and finally, an indication of budgets is helpful, but not essential.
1. Our Response
We respond to the brief with a detailed creative proposal. This will outline our approach to the site, it’s potential structure, content, and how and who will be working on your project. We outline the audience you are targeting, the best cost effective methods of building the site and the implications of these. As well as this, other technical and creative considerations will be addressed and explained as necessary. You will be given basic time scales/schedules and a full budget breakdown.
2. Site Structure (wire-framing) look and feel
After a more detailed briefing you will be presented with a draft site structure (flow diagram) for discussion and approval before work commences. Also, we may show you a few working designs of how the site could look and function for you to trial.
‘3-clicks to anywhere’ – we aim to work within this rule wherever possible. This means that the navigation will be designed in such a way that from any place within the web site, you can reach anywhere else in 3-clicks or less.
Areas of discussion
- Site navigation
- Menu styles/positions
- Colour schemes
- Site structure and organisation
- Media content
- Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)
- Content management / Maintenance
- Pay per click advertising
At this stage we will also set-up the web hosting and register your chosen domain names, if needed.
3. Providing us with images, text and graphics
Existing corporate brochures, identities, logos etc should be supplied to us, preferably in digital form so that we can match your existing corporate style. It is very important, at this stage, to get as many design decisions made, because after work has started it can be costly to make radical changes.
4. Who does what?
Websites can be simple or complex, be made by one person or involve a whole team. Depending on your needs and the scale of your website project, the schedule could be full of job titles that you may have heard of but might not know what they do…
- Web Project Manager
- Copywriter (SEO)
- Graphic Designer
- Web Designer
- Content editor
- Web/Database programmer
- Video encoder
5. Site testing
The test site will be updated throughout construction, so that you can always see the progress of the site. It will be constantly tested on the most popular browsers, on the most popular operating systems, throughout the whole site building process.
We do not use any proprietary technologies in our web sites that restrict its viewing to specific browsers or operating systems, or that require additional downloads to view the basic content.
7. Final upload and GO LIVE!
With the site finished it’s time for your site to go live to it’s new worldwide audience.
8. Publicising the site
As soon as the site has gone live, you need to publicise it. This can take many forms and we will discuss with you which methods are suitable:
- Paid for internet advertising
- Adding the web address to your business stationery
- Advertising in print publications
- Submission to search engines
- Targeted email campaigns
- Mail shots
Delivery of information quickly and effectively is a must for any website. We pride ourselves in delivering good-looking sites that are easy to navigate. Just take a look at a small sample of the sites we’ve designed.
