Front-end development is where we turn visual design into fully realised, web-ready code.
Our front-end development team has over 30 years’ combined experience in creating front-end code to be used in website builds. That means we know how to build websites that work. We develop web standard compliant sites that are responsive by default, taking a 'mobile-first' approach to design and development.
Techniques we use
Web standards compliant development
All our government websites are built to Web Accessibility Standard 1.1 and Web Usability Standard 1.3. We make sure users have full content access then add enhancements on top of these standards to provide a more feature-rich experience on capable browsers.
Responsive and mobile friendly development
All our builds are fully responsive, rendering well on screens of any size. We develop responsive solutions depending on site requirements, using HTML/CSS frameworks as required.
Performance and SEO optimisation
CMS integration and template markup
All our developers are ‘full-stack’. That means they understand the requirements of writing front-end code that can be easily integrated into back-end systems. We use template markup to maintain separation between code and templates, allowing for easier development, maintenance, and improvements to the front end.
We use a variety of tools to create rich, interactive data visualisations that transform such data-heavy sources as spreadsheets, XML, and data APIs into attractive graphical displays.
We have a wealth of experience in creating tools or widgets to meet your needs. Recent examples include online calculators and configurable decision trees. If you need an interactive widget, we’re up for the challenge.
