When we first developed a web design for an e-commerced website in Adelaide, it was around the early 1990’s. The Commonwealth bank had introduced basic tools for the development of e-commerce websites. You could literally develop the sites payment gateway in a matter of minutes while other banks, such as St George Bank was an absolute nightmare often taking weeks to integrate.
E-commerce Web Design
Since then payment gateways have been developed specifically for handling user’s credit card details using secure encrypted protocols. Using Stripe, Square or PayPal integration is relatively painless and straightforward with them offering a sandbox solution for initial testing of product purchases. This is important because beyond buying a product online there are a lot of other services triggered after that. Emails confirming the purchase, orders being emailed and fulfilled and then despatched with another follow up email to the user explaining the order status. Of course, it can get even more more complicated than this depending on how your online business operates, however, we always try to provide the easiest solutions.
Motion Graphics And Animation
A lot has changed since the early days and we’ve moved onto new and exciting technologies that provide agile solutions for a faster, cheaper and easier experience for our clients. We pride ourselves on being one of the best web design providers using motion graphics and animation on the web and in our ebook publications.
We use numerous technologies to develop motion graphics and animation for the web. The latest being JSON animations which are ultra lightweight and designed to load fast and play back smoothly. We can run them once, multiple times, when a user scrolls to it or in a continuous loop. This type of animation is currently still being developed with only a handful of developers at the time of writing this blog post using the technology and Kodako has been using it since its inception.
The main benefits of using animation is to engage users and explain functions of a website quickly to the user. Animations used in combination with motion graphics provide an immersive experience for users and will keep users exploring the rest of the site’s content.
Website Content Management
We’ve always been conscience of how complex things can get for our clients managing an online business and we’ve responded by using technologies that make the process as simple as possible. It’s why we chose to develop with WordPress, an open source content management system that allows our users to work with an agile CMS combination that can adapt to changing business requirements rapidly. We designed Kodako Liquid, a small but powerful library of premium WordPress plugins that perform just about any task required on the net including dynamic content.
Kodako’s Liquid plugins are thoroughly tested ensuring there are no conflicts within the plugin library. We then deploy them on our own website first for testing and then update our client’s websites based on their requirements. Conscience of fast load up times we always using the bare minimum of premium plugins to ensure website integrity and load up speed remains fast.
