Following a recommendation by one of our other delighted customers we were very pleased to be approached by Hytec Plastics. In this project we were invited to create a custom Web presence that would act as an informative and eye-catching online brochure. This task included all of the following aspects:

Intelligent content planning: Before we begin to even contemplate the design or structure of any Website we carefully address the issue of how any proposed content will be suitably organised and eventually presented online. Good content planning consequently 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: Whilst being sensitive to the companies existing logo and printed material our remit was to design and create a clean and uncluttered site that would also be instantly engaging and user friendly.

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

Custom graphics and artwork: Various original key graphics & images were created from scratch for this Website including 3D rendering. We also achieved the sensitive re-creation of the company's existing print only logo for effective use on screen.

Photography: Various key photographs were expertly taken and skilfully enhanced for inclusion within the site.

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 the company...

When the site's enquiry form is used, the contents of the form are immediately sent to the appropriate staff at Hytec Plastics, 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™ animation: First impressions count, so a fast loading Flash animation is used to grab the visitor’s attention on the site's front page. The animation we created offers a simplified and colourful interpretation of the plastic moulding process.

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 Website's, 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.

Professional hosting and email: As with many of our customers, we supply Hytec Plastics with reliable and fast Website hosting, delivering their Website to a global audience. We also provide the company with comprehensive professional email services for all of their staff and various departments.
