Digital design is a real art. Yes, the creative must look fantastic, but it must do much more. It must communicate key messages, differentiate you from your competitors, play to your strengths and excite and inspire users to action.

The increase in mobile and tablet usage is driving change in the way users access digital content and this new and complex media environment demands a slick, responsive user experience.

The 9xb creative team have worked for some of the world's biggest brands, creating campaigns and websites for a wide range of audiences and sectors. It's this experience that sets us apart and enables us to translate your goals and visions into a website that you'll be proud of and your customers will love.

Connect with your customers

When the visitor arrives at your website we only have a few seconds to connect with them. We need to take them on a journey and make sure they get to the final destination.

Different users on different devices have differing needs and our industry leading responsive design framework will keep you ahead of the curve.

There’s a definite shift away from unnecessary clutter and decoration, to engaging content with responsive layouts that are easy to use on small screen sizes. So don’t add content because you can – add content because it enhances the user experience. Simplicity is the key. Time is precious, so the simpler your message the greater chance you have of connecting with your audience.

Mobile’s going places

Smartphones and tablets are the centre of consumers’ multi-platform lives with mobile becoming the “first screen” for a huge number of people. Users demand a dynamic experience delivered when they want it, how they want it and from wherever they want it.

9xb’s industry leading fully responsive user interface (UI) framework utilises the latest techniques and technologies to serve the best possible user experience across a wide range of mobile devices.

We’re delivering successful mobile campaigns for the likes of Bathstore, Hi-Tec Sports, Marks & Spencer and Bradford Theatres – and we’d love to add you to this list.

Mobile first

Whether it's a dedicated mobile version of your website or a fully responsive layout, our talented team of designers and developers will ensure you have all bases covered. From the look and feel, through structure (IA), user interface (UI) and technical implementation.

Our ‘Mobile First’ methodology begins with a 'lite' version of your site fully optimised for the mobile user. Best practice dictates fast download times, finger friendly buttons, call to actions high up the page, simplified navigation, shorter forms - and that's just the start! Additional functionality is then layered onto the mobile site depending on the device being used; building up to the full website for the desktop browser.

Managing your content

Peracto, our enterprise level CMS platform has been developed over the past 5 years by our expert team of web developers, UI gurus, database architects and software engineers. This highly intuitive CMS features a fully responsive UI framework and provides workflow management, page versioning, multi-user access, comprehensive page editor, SEO tools, banner management, image manager, video uploader and much more.

The Peracto platform can be deployed quickly and inexpensively then customised to your exact needs. So if you need to integrate with your existing systems, or need customised functionality – no problem.

Covering all the (data)bases

Your web database is the heart of your website so it must be built on solid foundations. Your system needs to be scalable to support growth, optimised to manage spikes in demand, reliable and above all secure.

Our elite team of database engineers are one of the key areas of our agency and is made of some of the most highly skilled developers in the land. They work tirelessly to make sure queries are optimised to be smaller, faster and more lightweight - ensuring sites perform to their optimum levels whilst managing server resources to maintain performance during busy periods.

Systems can be designed and developed from scratch, legacy data can be converted and we can of course integrate your web databases with your existing applications – the potential is endless.

Engineered for performance

When a user visits your site they expect everything to happen instantly and with potentially millions of rows of data needing to be updated, optimised, indexed and stored, that's some ask - but that's what we deliver.

Recent projects include database management systems that display huge catalogues, store customer information, process sales orders, manage subscriptions and memberships, support message boards, handle complicated search queries and facilitate ticketing systems, plus a whole lot more.

It might be all just ones and zeros to you and me, but to our expert database developers it's an art form. Please give us a call or drop us a line and let’s talk data!
