As of 2015 all websites we make are responsive, which means they adapt to the different screen widths found on PCs, tablets, netbooks and smartphones. Responsive design, sometimes known as responsive engineering, is now an important part of the development process and something which anyone about to hire a web designer should be aware of.
The quickest way to enable e-commerce on a website is to add a "Buy now" button that links to PayPal. Another approach is to use a dedicated shopping platform such as UltraCart or Shoppify. Weighing up the pros and cons of these and other options is not always easy: factors such as monthly fees, commission and stock control must be considered carefully.
There are three main types of logos: symbols, wordmarks and combination marks. Instantly recognizable symbols include Nike's "tick" and the WWF's black and white panda. The logos for Coca-Cola, Google and IBM are wordmarks. Most logos are combination marks, featuring a symbol and a wordmark: examples include YouTube and 7-11.
SEO, or search engine optimization, is an integral part of the website design process. Guidelines published by Google and other search engines must be adhered to; SEO strategies should be transparent and avoid spammy or "black hat" techniques.
Almost all database-driven websites will need a content management system (CMS). In its simplest form a CMS enables site administrators to upload and edit content; more complex set ups can manage customer information and generate detailed statistics.
We can manage product photography on location, though for specialized assignments we outsource to professional studios in Bangkok or Singapore. We can also help with video, but generally only for larger, corporate projects.

We hired Andrew (@AB Web Design Bangkok) to design and program our online fashion store, Longbone.cz. He did a great job and collaborated with our Czech guys to set up the checkout and payment processes.

We used the AB Web Design agency for two of our current websites (in Thailand and New Zealand) and the former site we had for Azimut Yachts Thailand. Good service and devotion to quality. We are particularly impressed by the back-end system that allows us to maintain the websites.

Andrew has twice made the Austro-Pro website for our bakery in Bangkok. We are always impressed. The photography was excellent.

We are the 9001 Council in Switzerland. You can see our website for the 9001council.org. We employed AB Design for the redesign of the site and we found the services to be efficient and very much to our liking.

All positive. They did exactly what we wanted. Our site functions as it should and generates a healthy turnover.

I asked Andrew to make my personal website a few years ago after seeing his work showcased on www.csszengarden.com. Everything turned out fine. I also reviewed his work on Amazon.

We wanted permission to publish a screenshot of Andrew's Zen Garden design for our book Webdesign fur Studium und Beruf. The declaration of usage release form was signed and returned free of charge. We were grateful for Andrew's help and professional attitude.

I hired AB Web Design in Bangkok, Thailand, in 2010. They made a photo gallery for me, www.indochina-photoelectric.com. They did everything and more. And quickly, too.

My name is Linda Hefferman and I wrote the Microsoft Expression Web for Dummies book. I contacted Andrew to ask permission to use a screenshot of his CSS Zen Garden submission, Mozart. In my opinion it was this design that really stood out and showed what can be achieved with CSS.
