Web Design Technology

At Web Shack, our main programming platform is PHP/MySQL which drives our content management and administration systems and pulls content requested by visitors to the website directly from the database. Our databases are always designed with scaleability in mind to ensure that the information held in them can be adapted to meet new business needs or reformatted to support new functionality or interaction requirements.

Our PHP approach also ensures that the content and the layout components are complety independent of each other so that fresh graphics, styling and layouts can be implemented without alteration to the database or other backend components, to lower the cost and timescales when a general freshening up of a site is required.

At the front end, we use Javascript/JQuery to enhance navigation and interaction, along with CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) for styling.

Graphics are produced using Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop with InDesign also utilised for printed media requirements.
