We are pleased to share the details on our latest website development project for the balloon twisting artists at funbelievable balloons. The folks at funbelievable provide a unique and entertaining service to restaurant patrons and party goers in the Bloomington IL and Peoria IL area. Feel free to check out some of the pictures and read more about our website development work below or head to their website to see the website updates in their full glory.
Mobile Friendly Website
We happened to really like the website design that was already in place for the website, but unfortunately the website wasn’t optimized for mobile devices. This meant that users on mobile devices would have to “pinch and zoom in” to read the text on the website. It was particularly cumbersome for website visitors using cell phones to complete forms on the website.
We decided to keep the existing website design, but made the website mobile friendly by using responsive website design. In the images above you can see how the layout of the website changes to better suit the users device, be it a desktop, tablet, or cell phone. The main difference is on the cell phone view, where the navigation menu collapses and the content is laid out to be viewed by scrolling down the webpage.
In addition to a better user experience, recent changes to Google search algorithm have placed an increased importance on mobile friendly website. In other words, mobile friendly website are good for SEO!
Content Management System Migration
Our other work on the website was moving the website to a Content Management System. Moving to a Content Management System will make it easier for the folks at funbelievable to add and update the content on their website. For this project, the content management system that we chose to do our website development work in was WordPress.
