🌵 What we provide

Web Design 🌵

What is Web Design?

Web design refers to the design of websites that are displayed on the internet. It usually refers to the user experience aspects of website development rather than software development. Web design used to be focused on designing websites for desktop browsers; however, since the mid-2010s, design for mobile and tablet browsers has become ever-increasingly important.

A web designer works on the appearance, layout, and, in some cases, content of a website. Appearance, for instance, relates to the colors, font, and images used. Layout refers to how information is structured and categorized. A good web design is easy to use, aesthetically pleasing, and suits the user group and brand of the website. Many webpages are designed with a focus on simplicity, so that no extraneous information and functionality that might distract or confuse users appears. As the keystone of a web designer’s output is a site that wins and fosters the trust of the target audience, removing as many potential points of user frustration as possible is a critical consideration.

Two of the most common methods for designing websites that work well both on desktop and mobile are responsive and adaptive design. In responsive design, content moves dynamically depending on screen size; in adaptive design, the website content is fixed in layout sizes that match common screen sizes. Preserving a layout that is as consistent as possible between devices is crucial to maintaining user trust and engagement. As responsive design can present difficulties in this regard, designers must be careful in relinquishing control of how their work will appear. If they are responsible for the content as well, while they may need to broaden their skillset, they will enjoy having the advantage of full control of the finished product.

Branding & Logos 🌵


What is Custom Branding?

We can help out with customised branding names and develop logo designs.

Branding is the process of building a unique name and image for a business in the customer’s mind. And, when you add more personalization and professionalism to it, it is called custom branding. 

To stand out among your competitors, you have to fully customize your brand – from the design of your website to the videos you create for your customers.

For example, a video can be customized through features, like colors, logos, buttons, page, etc., to match your brand identity so that more people can easily recognize your content across different platforms.

Why Does Your Business Need Custom Branding?

We live in a world where people expect businesses to have the ability to customize everything according to their individual preferences.

Customization enhances user experience and allows customers to control what they see and react positively towards your content. 
Customizing your brand as per your audience’s needs is easier said than done.

There are numerous ways to brand your videos and other content to suit your business goals. However, despite knowing the ways, not many businesses want to take advantage of this strategy. 

In a nutshell, custom branding can do wonders for your business. It puts you ahead of your competitors and allows you to reach your target audience more conveniently. Above all, it provides your customers with the best experience and messages they want to see.

Brand identity becomes your purpose statement. Your positioning statement.Your north star. It becomes the thing you can always fall back on whenever a “great new opportunity” comes your way.

Why A Good Logo Is Important For Your Business?

Let’s get a few things straight: your logo and your website is not your brand. Your brand is a culmination of the experience, perception and reputation that people have of your services. Branding is the actions taken to build your brand (strategy). And a brand identity is the tangible expression of your brand (logo, typography, colors, etc).

But that said, your logo is important to your business because it communicates ownership, quality, and values. It’s imprinted on your products, your business card, website, social media, and most importantly, in the minds of your clients.

Your logo is likely to be one of the first interactions people have with your company and it’s your opportunity to make a solid first impression, show you deliver a quality service, and visually express your purpose.

Why does your business need a logo?

A well-designed logo builds trust by validating your professionalism and get’s people to stick around.

It tells potential clients who you are, what you do, and how that benefits them. It communicates to people with no prior knowledge or experience with your business that you do great work.

If your logo looks unprofessional, people will undoubtedly question how well you’re able to deliver your products and services. Have you ever hit the back button or chose one company over another simply because they look more legit? People make snap judgments and poor design makes people leave.

Create a strong logo to stand out to consumers, ensure they remember your brand, and cultivate positive associations with you. Logos have a deep symbolic association connected to people’s memories and emotions.

Let’s take a quick look at Nike for example. The swoosh is just a swoosh. But, the connection we have to that symbol has everything to do with their vision of making the world a better place through running. That powerful idea defined their brand and their logo communicates that, empowering their business to thrive. Over time and with lots of consistent brand marketing, your logo should do the same for your business.

Invest in your logo design. It’s what matters most for increasing your credibility and pulling consumers in.

Placed underneath the mountain of Bohor (Slovenia), bordering on the Eastern Slovene Prealps and typical Pannonian landscape, a small farm estate carrying the name ‘Znoj’ (l.t. Sweat) was occupied since approx. 1900. The name and the farm-house are probably the true indicators of the conditions first owners were battling with. Typical Kozjansko region farm-house reveals the family struggle for survival: modest construction.
