Client & Requirement
One of our latest projects has been a website design for an Estate Agent in Northampton. We have been working with iLet Properties since 2016. Their original website was designed from a WordPress template, and needed some tidying up. We identified the need to redesign the home page especially, and shout out about the key advantages of using a Letting Agent in Northampton such as iLet Properties. The system they were using behind the scenes was already working well, so our web design team were keen to build on top of what was already there.
The team used the existing WordPress theme and page builder (visual composer) to redesign the home page of the website. Our web design team styled the page, and other elements of the site using CSS. The result is a website that is both user friendly, and more geared up to getting them found online.
The site had been suffering with page speed issues. Our web team used and configured a series of WordPress plugins to drastically improve the website’s performance. To reduce image size we used WPSmush, which reduced the size of any images across the site (although any images used in the web design were added below 150kb).
Does your website need a refresh?
It is pretty common to leave your website to collect dust. The problem with this is that it can slow down and become rather quickly out of date. Our Northampton web design team love redesigning websites. If you would like to find out more, why not contact the team via our contact page.
