Top 5 Reasons to use Bootstrap

  • Speed of Development – Undoubtedly one of the biggest advantages of using Bootstrap is the speed of development.
  • Responsiveness – Mobile devices continue to grow in popularity year after year.
  • Consistency – Bootstrap was actually founded on this principle.
  • Customization – Bootstrap can be tailor made according to the specifications of your project.
  • Support – Bootstrap has a huge support community behind it so you can usually get help when you run into issues.

Responsive Layout

Creating mobile ready websites is a breeze with Bootstrap thanks to the fluid grid layout that dynamically adjusts to the proper screen resolution. There is virtually no work that needs to be done to achieve proper responsiveness.

Using Bootstrap’s ready made classes, you can specify how many spots in the grid system you want each column to occupy. Then, you can specify at which point you want your columns to stack horizontally rather than vertically to display properly on mobile devices.

  • Strategic Planning

Brand Strategy

Your brand is more than your logo, name or slogan — it’s the entire experience your prospects and customers have with your company, product or service.

Your brand strategy defines what you stand for, a promise you make, and the personality you convey. And while it includes your logo, color palette and slogan, those are only creative elements that convey your brand. Instead, your brand lives in every day-to-day interaction you have with your market:

  • The images you convey
  • The messages you deliver on your website, proposals and campaigns
  • The way your employees interact with customers
  • A customer’s opinion of you versus your competition

The Value of Creating a Defined Brand Strategy

Branding is crucial for products and services sold in huge consumer markets. It’s also important in B2B because it helps you stand out from your competition. Your brand strategy brings your competitive positioning to life, and works to position you as a certain “something” in the mind of your prospects and customers.

Note: Check out our brand strategy development tools — see if they increase the strength of your brand.

Think about successful consumer brands like Disney, Tiffany or Starbucks. You probably know what each brand represents. Now imagine that you’re competing against one of these companies. If you want to capture significant market share, start with a strong brand strategy or you may not get far.

In your industry, there may or may not be a strong B2B brand. But when you put two companies up against each other, the one that represents something valuable will have an easier time reaching, engaging, closing and retaining customers.

Successful branding also creates “brand equity” – the amount of money that customers are willing to pay just because it’s your brand. In addition to generating revenue, brand equity makes your company itself more valuable over the long term.

Does your company follow a defined strategy for your brand? Which case do you fall under?

Brand Strategy Key Concepts & Steps

Before you begin

Before working on your brand strategy, make sure you’ve identified your competitive positioning strategy – your brand strategy will bring it to life.

If you have a brand strategy, make sure it’s as effective as possible

  • Poll your customers, employees and vendors by conducting a brand audit. Are their impressions consistent with your strategy? If not, work on the elements you can improve.

Develop your brand around emotional benefits

  • List the features and benefits of your product / service. A feature is an attribute – a color, a configuration; a benefit is what that feature does for the customer.
  • Determine which benefits are most important to each of your customer segments.
  • Identify which benefits are emotional – the most powerful brand strategies tap into emotions, even among business buyers.
  • Look at the emotional benefits and boil them down to one thing that your customers should think of when they think of you. That’s what your brand should represent.

Define your brand personality, story and positioning statements

  • Think of your brand as a person with a distinct personality. Describe him or her, then convey these brand personality traits in everything you do and create.
  • Write positioning statements and a story about your brand; use this brand messaging throughout your company materials.
  • Choose colors, fonts and other visual elements that match your personality and create your corporate identity.
  • Determine how your employees will interact with prospects and customers to convey the personality and make sure your brand “lives” within your company.

After Brand Strategy

Together with your competitive positioning strategy, your brand strategy is the essence of what you represent. A great brand strategy helps you communicate more effectively with your market, so follow it in every interaction you have with your prospects and customers.

If you’re wondering how to choose a great brand name, complete your written brand strategy before you start the naming process. Since your name is an extension of your brand, it’ll be much easier to evaluate the quality of your name choices (instead of starting with the name) with it completed.

Coding Secure Practices

Validate input. Validate input from all untrusted data sources. Proper input validation can eliminate the vast majority of software vulnerabilities. Be suspicious of most external data sources, including command line arguments, network interfaces, environmental variables, and user controlled files [Seacord 05].

Heed compiler warnings. Compile code using the highest warning level available for your compiler and eliminate warnings by modifying the code [C MSC00-A, C++ MSC00-A]. Use static and dynamic analysis tools to detect and eliminate additional security flaws.
Architect and design for security policies. Create a software architecture and design your software to implement and enforce security policies. For example, if your system requires different privileges at different times, consider dividing the system into distinct intercommunicating subsystems, each with an appropriate privilege set.

Keep it simple. Keep the design as simple and small as possible [Saltzer 74, Saltzer 75]. Complex designs increase the likelihood that errors will be made in their implementation, configuration, and use. Additionally, the effort required to achieve an appropriate level of assurance increases dramatically as security mechanisms become more complex.
Default deny. Base access decisions on permission rather than exclusion. This means that, by default, access is denied and the protection scheme identifies conditions under which access is permitted [Saltzer 74, Saltzer 75].

Adhere to the principle of least privilege. Every process should execute with the the least set of privileges necessary to complete the job. Any elevated permission should be held for a minimum time. This approach reduces the opportunities an attacker has to execute arbitrary code with elevated privileges [Saltzer 74, Saltzer 75].
Sanitize data sent to other systems. Sanitize all data passed to complex subsystems [C STR02-A] such as command shells, relational databases, and commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) components. Attackers may be able to invoke unused functionality in these components through the use of SQL, command, or other injection attacks. This is not necessarily an input validation problem because the complex subsystem being invoked does not understand the context in which the call is made. Because the calling process understands the context, it is responsible for sanitizing the data before invoking the subsystem.

Practice defense in depth. Manage risk with multiple defensive strategies, so that if one layer of defense turns out to be inadequate, another layer of defense can prevent a security flaw from becoming an exploitable vulnerability and/or limit the consequences of a successful exploit. For example, combining secure programming techniques with secure runtime environments should reduce the likelihood that vulnerabilities remaining in the code at deployment time can be exploited in the operational environment [Seacord 05].

Use effective quality assurance techniques. Good quality assurance techniques can be effective in identifying and eliminating vulnerabilities. Fuzz testing, penetration testing, and source code audits should all be incorporated as part of an effective quality assurance program. Independent security reviews can lead to more secure systems. External reviewers bring an independent perspective; for example, in identifying and correcting invalid assumptions [Seacord 05].
Adopt a secure coding standard. Develop and/or apply a secure coding standard for your target development language and platform.

What is strategic design?

Strategic design is the fusion of your organizational goals with every aspect of your design process. You aren’t simply designing a user interface that looks good and is usable and accessible. You’re designing an interface that will help you accomplish your organization’s objectives.

Implementing Strategic Design

Let’s take a look at how we can use six steps to think strategically about a Web design project:

Establish your goals

One of the first things you need to do before starting work on a Web design project is to be clear about your client or organization’s goals. What are you trying to achieve with the new website or redesign? What is the website’s main purpose? Ask your client, your manager or yourself what those are. If they or you don’t know yet, then they should be discussed and agreed upon. A clear direction is essential if you want your design to have a purpose.

Identify your audience

Who your audience is will play a big role in how your website should look and function. There are many demographics here that can influence your design, ones like age, gender, profession and technical competency.

Determine your brand image

A lot of designers tend to get a little too inspired by the latest trends and then implement them without thinking first about what sort of image they really should be conveying. Glossy buttons, gradients and reflective floors may work for some websites, but they may not be right for your brand.

Goal-driven design direction

You’ve established the purpose of your website, set some goals you want to achieve, identified your audience and determined your brand image. You can now proceed to implement it. So how do you make design decisions sync with your strategy?

Measure results

Once you’ve designed and deployed your website, it’s time to measure your success. This is just as important as the first two steps because until you test how well your design performs, you won’t know whether or not it is effective in fulfilling your goals.

Kaizen

There is a Japanese philosophy called “Kaizen,” which focuses on continuous improvement using small steps. When you work on your website, you should be thinking of Kaizen because the version you’ve just published is not the final version. There doesn’t even have to be a final version.

Design Strategy for Adding Animation To Your Website

Let me start by clarifying that this post is not about adding large scale, movie-like animations to your website homepage. You might not even notice some of the subtle animations referred to in this post, but they are everywhere on the modern web. Open your favorite mobile app, and even the login screen is filled with animation: bouncing icons, changing colors, update messages fading in and out. All of these small touches of animation significantly enhance the user experience. Business and Mobile app development are filled with such enhancements. So how do you include app-like user interface animation on your website?

The Game Plan

How do you plan in the design phase to make implementing animation more efficient in the development phase? Here is what the Daylight team has found to be effective.

Step 1

Animation will help shape the personality of a website. With that in mind, before you add animation you first need to decide what your brand’s voice and tone look like and then what type of animations would display that voice visually.

Step 2

Now that a style and feeling has been chosen and documented, it’s time to search for opportunities to implement animations. List the opportunities in order of importance, starting with the those that best support the product’s goals. Guiding the user through interaction points like hovering over a button, clicking a link, displaying error messages and submitting a form, should be your focus.

Step 3

Using your new list of animation opportunities, uncover the individual components that need to be designed. How you approach the design of an animation is a bit tricky and can be handled many ways depending on team preferences and ability. One quick approach is to search for examples and compile a small library. Examples may be displayed in many respects, like screen captures, URLs of websites, Codepen examples, custom designed animation videos or links to demos. Gather whatever model type works best for your team and catalog them with your list from step 2. Now you know where you want animations and how the motion should look.

Step 4

Review your final list and example catalog for consistency. This simple step is of great importance to avoid common pitfalls that come with adding animation. In Step 4 you might decide to rank the list as Phase 1 vs. Phase 2 based on expected budget constraints. Or you might even cut out some animations that seem unnecessary. Most importantly, you look for patterns and add, adjust or subtract animations so that similar components will have similar motion.

What we are good at

Photoshop

Photoshop is our go to image-editing program, we can use Photoshop to "alter" images like photos, downloaded icons, or scanned artwork. Altering an image includes doing such things as changing the colors within an image, modifying the size and scale of an image, or putting one picture "within" another. We also can use Photoshop to create amazing features, including scaled images up or down,with color options which can be combined to create additional color looks, to make your subject appears in front or behind objects like a wall. Or just simpley make your image or photo into a 3D rendering.

Illustrator

Illustrator allows us to use layers in your artwork.

  • Creating and editing layers
  • Naming layers
  • Layers versus sublayers
  • Layers panel options
  • Using layers to select content
  • Merging and sharing layers
  • Controlling layer appearance
  • Super Support

    Effective and productive websites and web applications require regular website maintenance, updates, and the occasional fix and repair. Technologies improve, content needs refreshing, and security is constantly in flux. Finding the right website maintenance services company can be daunting, so talk to us first, it’s free, so give us a call and let us do it all!

    Html

    The first part to improving a website’s performance and organization revolves around identifying a good strategy and structure for developing the code base. Specifically, building a strong directory architecture, outlining design patterns, and finding ways to reuse common code.

    jQuery

    The Strategy pattern encapsulates alternative algorithms (or strategies) for a particular task. It allows a method to be swapped out at runtime by any other method (strategy) without the client realizing it. Essentially, Strategy is a group of algorithms that are interchangeable.

    Javascript

    If you require the latest tools and techniques on JavaScript Patterns, jQuery Patterns, and Pattern Architectures, we use JavaScript, jQuery Design Pattern Framework to get your project done just how you want it to include:

  • JavaScript-optimized GoF patterns
  • Modern JavaScript Design Patterns
  • Model-View Design Patterns
  • jQuery Design Patterns
  • Architecture patterns
  • JavaScript Idioms (great fun!)
  • Sample Apps (MVC, SPA, etc.)
