So - What is This All About?

Much web design nowadays is complex and full of "bells and whistles" - fine if you have a browser with all the necessary plug-ins to get the full benefit (and sometimes all day to await the download for a significant few!!). This is quite often far from being the case and we cannot just assume everyone has everything. The thinking is that very often - "less" can be "more" - information communication being the priority.

Many people require little more than a professional looking, clear presentation of their business, products or services - sufficient to convey information and comfortably enlighten the visitor, with perhaps a degree of individuality produced by a careful choice of corporate colour background, text colour and style. Shall we say - plain and effective transfer of easily assimilated information within "comfortable" surroundings within which everything can be easily found intuitively - but if frills are wanted, they can be supplied!.

So - What We Try to Do

At ACB Systems (Alum Bank Web), we aim to provide just this freedom from frills - probably the only regularly used concession to "gadgets" being a small amount of JavaScript (a powerful scripting language) and progressively more use of style sheets, sufficient to enable attractive and interesting features and layout, plus occasional small scripts to provide useful facilities when required. We do not use much Flash even now, although many sites do and this page is based for the most part on a CSS structure.

All we need to assemble a site for you is essentially, a set of documents containing required text elements; a set of images (digital and/or hard copy); overall chosen construction sequence and chapter requirements, and special preferences. We can design you a logo as well.

We aim to please and give good value, with required follow up for maintenance when needed, ensuring to the maximum a close liason with our clients - whether directly or just over phone lines and email. Frequently, we let them select a host company of their own choice if so desired and then provide us with necessary information for access but we will of course always advise and recommend a suitable host when required and set everything up painlessly.

All You Need to Do

Drop us an email to to enquire about your ideas and possible requirements, and find out how they might be implemented. Often a short discussion is all that is needed to establish the overall "feel" for a proposed site and decide how much work may be involved, both in quantity and complexity. Make a subject line precise to help avoid our dreaded spam filter from 'killing' your email.
