We were very excited to team up with Leigh Anne in Round Rock -Texas; She was looking for a competitively priced Web developer to create a fun & friendly Website for her start-up petsitting venture. That was some time ago now, and these days her business is thriving!

Intelligent content planning: Before we begin to even contemplate the design or structure of any Website we carefully address the issue of how the content will be suitably organised and eventually presented online. Good content planning ensures that we design accessible Websites with clear-cut navigation and uncomplicated well laid out structures. As a result visitors are able to find the information they want without any apprehension, delay or frustration.

Original custom design & build: We saw that most sites of this nature were template based & very similar in there design so we eagerly set out to produce and deliver a unique individual online identity for Happy Paws. Our goal was for the site to be easy to fun, friendly, and truly cost effective.

As with all of our work, this site was painstakingly custom crafted from the ground up to encompass our clients every requirement.

Custom graphics and artwork: Various original key graphics & artwork were created for this Website, including a set of original cartoon style characters.

Stock imagery: Where appropriate professional stock imagery was carefully selected then skilfully edited to excellent effect.

Custom scripting & programming: All of our Websites utilise in-house custom written scripting / programming making everything work smoothly behind the scenes. This particular site utilises a custom written enquiry form providing a friendly and effortless way for customers to get in touch with Happy Paws...

When the site's enquiry form is submitted, its contents are immediately sent to Happy Paws, whilst an automated "thank you" response is also courteously sent out to the enquirers email address. Our enquiry form feature also incorporates various sophisticated anti-spam filters.

Custom created Flash™ animations: The stars of this site are several custom created cartoon characters / animations used to excellent effect on each page.

In the "want it now!" world of the Web, few surfers are willing to wait whilst a Flash feature loads. Accordingly we are always mindful to create FAST loading and efficiently designed Flash features, ensuring the greatest experience for all Web surfers.

Accessibility testing: As with all of our Websites, we robustly tested this site at various key development stages making certain that it would be fully compatible with all popular Web browser packages, (such as Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera and Netscape Navigator for example).

Ensuring the widest available audience: We understand that not all Web surfers use the same Web browser packages, screen resolution or technology, meaning that many poorly written sites cannot be properly viewed by large clusters of Web surfers. With this in mind we take great care to ensure that anything we place on the World Wide Web can be properly accessed and viewed by the widest available audience.

Web hosting and housekeeping services - an ongoing commitment: Through our own fast and reliable professional hosting services we successfully deliver the Happy Paws Website around the globe. As part of our standard and affordable annual hosting remit we also handle all Website content updates for them. We perform such housekeeping services for many of our customers who find our ongoing commitment to their needs invaluable.
