Web Design with DesignKarma

DesignKarma is a small but mighty web agency based in Manchester.

We've been designing websites since 1997 for a huge range of clients and agencies, across a broad spectrum of industries. Everything we do is simple, focussed and easy to use.

Good web design is about ensuring your content is engaging and easily accessible to everyone. It should look and feel great, no matter what the device.

DesignKarma has over a decade of experience delivering stunning websites and web apps for small businesses, as well as larger organisations like the NHS and Riviera Travel.

Make the right decisions and good things happen

We believe the best design is the result of lots of small decisions, investing your project with karma that will pay off through better user experience, engagement and conversion.

We love starting a new project and either working with your own style and identity, or developing a completely new one for you.

Typography and hierarchy

Typography is a fundamental principle of good design, whether it's print or digital. With so many excellent digital foundries, it's easier than ever to choose the right fonts for a website or web app. We love taking time to identify the best font or font pairings that best serve your identity and content. Developing an effective typographic scale (e.g. Fibonacci, Le Corbusier, etc...) and rhythm also makes such a difference, and makes your content much easier to read.

Agile design and development

Once we have a handle on the creative direction and style elements of the project, we tend to dive straight into code, and start to bring the project to life in the browser. This agile, iterative process helps us solve design and layout issues along the way, improving the user experience. Stakeholders are also able to input, develop and polish their content, shortening the project lifespan. Our clients have found this dynamic approach far more valuable than developing static mockups.

Working with agencies, and directly with clients

DesignKarma is equally at home partnering with a digital, advertising or marketing agency; or working directly with clients across the UK and overseas.

We believe in hard work and good communication. Everything we do is simple, focussed and easy to use. Talk to us today about your next project.
