WebMedia Manila is a trade name owned by Applebox Website Design and Development Co. We are designers, producers, developers, and technologists who share a passion for translating a great idea into an engaging, intelligent and innovative user experience.
Like any art form, website design requires imagination, taste, and inspiration. We work with client-supplied materials and existing elements of a brand’s identity as well as create our own assets through 3D, illustration, and graphic design.
We design web sites that focus on usability. This means web sites that are simple to use, easy to navigate, and that help the user to find information and products quickly. We work hard to create design that is elegant, timeless and compelling. Yet, we never allow our desire for great art to overwhelm the need for good function.
As the web moves away from being the “cool new toy” to a tool for information and research, web design must change with it. Web design must support your message, not overwhelm it. Therefore, web design must be done with restraint. Visual toys such as animation and sound must be used only when the content or product warrants it, not simply as useless decoration.
Why must web design face this new reality? Because many of the promises made concerning the Web have not been fulfilled. High-speed connections such as DSL are not utilized by most Americans, nor by most of the world. If you want your web site to be viewed by the widest possible audience, the design must factor in the speed limitations of dial-up connections.
Also, the Web is not television. It is currently an information resource for most users, not an entertainment medium. Therefore, web design must make information easily accessible. That is its core responsibility.
Additionally, e-commerce is about meeting the needs of diverse customers quickly. Simplicity, ease of use and clear navigation are powerful web design tools that enhance the customer experience, and your bottom line as a business owner.
WebMedia Manila does not only designs web sites, but helps businesses by designing web sites intelligently. We avoid the fads that quickly go out of style and focus on what matters most to the customer. Anything that hinders your ability to communicate clearly to your customer is left out. That is what good web design is all about.
