What makes fuel different?
The company website often makes the first impression for the business. Therefore, it is vital that this impression is the best one possible. Great design, combined with tried and tested usabaility methodologies will guide your customers to where they need to go with the minimum number of clicks.
The website also needs to be updated easily, fast loading, secure, W3C compliant, measurable and future proof. There are many things to consider when it comes to building an effective business website.
Fuel have been creating successful business websites for more than ten years, we understand the complexities of web design so our customers don't need to. Fuel work to identify the requirements, then design and build the right solution for the business on the best system, to the highest industry standards.
What makes one website better than another? Is your current website...
A feature with all Fuel Design's websites. We feel that W3C best practice web design will ensure your website is positioned well for the future and will be held in the best possible light by Google and other search engines. We also hand code all our sites, eliminating bad code that often falls between the cracks from some commercial software programmes - further streamlining your website.
It's a complicated task to achieve, but all you need to know is that your website is built to the best possible standards, and you are joining the new 'validated' breed of websites that are making the Web a better place to be... and making your web design more readable by search engines!
One of the most critical aspects of creating a smooth build is ensuring everyone is communicating! We start of with a 'Discovery Meeting' to get a general understanding of your business, your competition, your points of difference, and what your potential clients are looking for in your new website. We follow this up with a 'Scoping Meeting' to better understand the finer aspects of the design, functionality and anything else we may need to expand upon. We add all our clients into our Project Management Software, this allows everyone to communicate from one central point and tracks tasks, milestones, files and time etc.
The proven systems we have in place streamline the web design process and ensure you know exactly what is happening at every stage of the web design and build process.
We have many years of graphic design and web design experience and understand the importance of having an eye catching and professional glow. Your website is a direct reflection of your business, and by utilising proven design principles we can give your web site design the edge over the competition!
Keep in mind the average user looks over your website for less than 10 seconds before deciding to explore further or move on to your competitors! Does your current website instantly capture your desired audience?
It's important to remember the fundamental purpose of any website is to deliver information about your business, products and / or services. Fuel Design prides itself on creating user centric interfaces that are intuitive and easy to understand, and leads the user to where they need to be.
We offer a number of simple to use, but extremely powerful content management systems (CMS). This allows you to easily maintain your web site with no knowledge of web design or development, and provides a powerful array of tools to streamline your business and help it grow.!
With expert knowledge of search engine optimisation (SEO) and search engine marketing (SEM), your website content will be clearly visible to search engines such as Google, Yahoo and Bing. Some CMSs hide your content in a deep hole, our CMSs enhance your search engine listings!
Using Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) we separate content from presentation. This approach to design ensures forward compatibility with future generation browsers and allows us to easily adapt your design in the future.
Our CMS are modular, this allows you to add functionality as your business grows. Don't get caught with a CMS that leads your website down a dead end road!

- Product Chaser
Fuel Design were fantastic! Our relatively complicated back-end programming needed a sleek and clean front-end experience for the customer. Jason and team did a wonderful job of merging these two seemingly incompatible objectives. Our website looks fantastic and is easy to use and navigate, both for the customers and the business.
