Tailored Database Design

Database DesignMaking a Database Describe Your Business

Database design usually needs a combination of tools and software. Microsoft Access works fine as a standalone database for one computer or as a front end (forms, reports, code) plus back end (data) on a network. We're increasingly designing databases which use Access as a front end but with a SQL Server or MySQL (free) database as back end. Additionally, any of these databases can be used as a back end to a web front end. We use VBA for coding.

Custom and Wordpress Web Design

Database DesignGetting Customers to Explore Your Business

For many years we designed only custom-build web sites, moving on to templated and then responsive designs. We discovered, however, that our clients increasingly wanted sites they could modify, edit, add to. In the early days of Wordpress, there were still a lot of things you couldn't do without hard-coding content, but the application has improved immensely. Now we recommend Wordpress to clients for its ease of use (compared to much more complex platforms such as Joomla and Drupal) and countless free plug-ins which enable events, blogs, shops, membership etc. However, we are equally happy to design a custom build for you if you need a more specialised web site.

Databases on the Web

Database DesignCombining Pages, Code and Databases

We use Photoshop CS3 extensively with web design along with a number of other graphic/video/audio tools. We often need to integrate Microsoft Office applications as part of an Access project, so we are conversant with coding for Outlook VBA and Excel VBA within Access. We use ASP (Active Server Pages) for web/database projects: these enable us to design forms on web pages so that you can add and edit your database data online, as well as view and print data.
