Looking good isn't enough on its own. Successful websites need to be geared to their target audience, programmed to display correctly on multiple browsers and optimised for search engines. At pdp we have experienced experts for all these tasks. Graphic artists and creative web designers develop the page layout, navigation and any interactive elements. Technical writers with experience in a variety of fields produce and edit the copy. Media designers optimise the images from the photographers or stock agencies. Programmers and specialists for Flash animation and databases ensure that the entire website is attractive, user-friendly and conforms to accessibility standards. If required we can also provide content management systems, databases, intranet systems and even the servers.
You don't need to worry about anything. Your personal pdp project consultant coordinates everything for you, getting your information onto the internet quickly and easily. Just ask us – we can help you to create a new website or to modernise an existing website quickly and economically.
Talking point: W3C-compatible web development
The World Wide Web Consortium or W3C is an international standards body that was established by a large number of companies and organisations active on the internet. The W3C publishes and manages the standards for internet formats. These standards are similar to ISO or DIN standards for engineering. One of the most important is HTML – the language that is still used in most of the pages on the Web.
In the past, neither web browser programmers nor web designers took these standards very seriously. This resulted in many incompatible and non-standard versions or "dialects" of the languages used on the Web. Today, failure to observe W3C standards will often make the resulting web pages look different in different browsers. In really bad cases the layout can be wrong or even completely garbled so that it is impossible to read the page.
In contrast, if the current W3C standards are observed strictly the pages will look equally good in all browsers – no matter whether your users are surfing with Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Safari or Opera in current or earlier versions.
Another big advantage for website operators is that W3C-compatible pages make automated processing of the pages much easier. For example, this enables your pages to be handled by additional software that makes them accessible for users with handicaps, and it also improves their performance in search engines, which are becoming ever more crucial for the success of websites.
W3C-compatible websites from pdp are tested on up to nine different browsers, ensuring that you will be delivering the same quality experience to all your customers.
