Kaz Design Works offers the following website design services to help you achieve your online goals.

Website Design

Need a web presence but don’t have time to add your own content?

For business owners who don’t have time to manage their own content we will help you gain your web presence by creating a static, brochure-style website unique to your business.

Our website designs are created from scratch using a combination of royalty free photographs and/or clip art, PhotoShop graphics, web-standard XHTML and CSS as well as some JavaScript. OpenSource PHP code may also be used for some additional features, such as mail forms (see below).

Our website design service includes creating all the background and header graphics (apart from your logo). However, if you already have a graphic designer for your print material or you are an artist you may prefer to supply your own graphics.

We add, size and format the content supplied by you, as well as add page titles, descriptions and keywords to the background coding to aid SEO and usability. If you need help with writing your content check out our resources section. If you are still stuck, let us know. We’ll send you names of local content writers.

Website Redesign

Not happy with your current website design?

Do any of the following apply to you?

  • You or a family member, created your website but it doesn’t look professional
  • You hired a website designer but they didn’t do what you asked them
  • The template supplied by your web host doesn’t match your print material
  • Your website functions well but it really could do with some background graphics
  • Your website looks great but it doesn’t function correctly
  • Your website hasn’t been updated for several years

Kaz Design Works can help you solve these and other issues you may have with your current website, whether it just needs a minor redesign or the entire website needs an overhaul.

We can create effective header, navigation and background graphics, change the layout and colour scheme using web standard XHTML and CSS or correct any non-standard coding in the current layout to make it function correctly. We can do all this whilst leaving the content intact or we can redesign the entire website and add brand new content.

CMS Template Customization

Need to regularly update your website’s content?

If you want to regularly update your content yourself you will need a content managed system (CMS).
Most webiste hosts provide CMS software with customizable templates. Kaz Design Works can customize one of the templates so that it is unique to your business.

If you haven’t already installed CMS software, such as Joomla! or Drupal, check to see if it’s included with your web hosting package or that your server is enabled for PHP and MSQL before we begin your the customization. You may need to upgrade, change web host or use different CMS.

Our CMS customization services, include creating brand new background, navigation and header graphics, altering the HTML and CSS of the supplied template, and in some circumstances, we will make minor alterations to the PHP code to remove any unwanted elements or features. We can also help you set up your sections, categories, menus and pages.

Blog Template Customization

Do you want to write articles and add them to your website?

If you already have a static website, but want to add regular articles, a blog, such as WordPress, is the ideal solution. Most web hosts provide blog software that include a choice of templates complete with a variety of widgets. However, they won’t match the rest of your website.

Choose a template that includes the widgets you need for your article posts, and Kaz Design Works will customize the layout to match your current website.

If you are starting from scratch and don’t already have a website, you can use the blog software to add static pages that are widget enabled. Or, if you prefer your static pages without widgets and don’t need to update them regularly, Kaz Design Works can create html pages and add the content for you.

Stand out from the crowd. Contact Kaz Design Works now to have your CMS or WordPress template customized.

eCommerce (Shopping Cart) Template Customization

Want your shopping cart to match your website?

If you have a website but want to start selling products online, check to see if your web host offers eCommerce shopping cart software. We can customize the template supplied with your eCommerce package to match the rest of your website.

If you don’t already have a website, we can customize your shopping cart template and create static pages to match. And if you need help configuring your shopping cart and adding products to the database, we can help with that too.

If you only plan to sell a few products or your web hosting package does not include eCommerce, we can add buttons to your website with links to PayPal, ClickBank, Indiepool or other secured online payment service of your choice instead.

If you are a photographer or have photographs of products you sell or crafts you’ve created, we can add a photo gallery, image pop-ups or roll over images.

SEO, browser compatibility & website validation

When we design, redesign or make updates to your website we carry out important procedures to aid search engine optimization as well as making your website as user-friendly as possible.

We also check for browser compatibility in a variety of browsers, as well as screen sizes and screen resolutions.

We validate the HTML source code on each page, the CSS coding and check for broken links.

Website Updates and Maintenance

Want visitors to have a better chance of finding you?

It is important to keep your website current and up-to-date, not only to encourage repeat visits but to aid search engine optimization.

Google and other search engine spiders and bots periodically index your website. If your website is not updated regularly these spiders and bots somehow know and “decide” not to return to your website to re-index it.

We recommend that you periodically analyze your website to determine how effective your key phrases are. Google Analytics is one great tool but there are several internet marketing companies that offer additional services, such as key phrase conversion.

Whether you need to add a new page, article or key phrases from time to time, add products to your shopping cart once a month, change event or workshop dates each season, or just want to give your website a fresh look, Kaz Design Works offers website update and maintenance packages to help keep your website current.
