Our background is in graphic design and we have many years experience producing everything from logo and corporate identity, sales literature, exhibition material, advertising etc. We use the same basic principles for our online design work. Larger companies usually have a very clear strategy for marketing and how their content is used. Colours, images, and logos are part of an overall scheme that goes through both online and offline marketing, but they are important considerations for small businesses, clubs and individuals too who may not have marketing teams or experts on hand.

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)
SGSS Design works with various partners to offer search engine optimisation services to clients throughout Crawley and the surrounding areas of West Sussex.
SEO covers all aspects of website design and build and needs to be considered from the very beginning of the process. From the page content, how the site is optimised, using responsive design and labelling images are all important. There are also hidden elements not seen on the site that are used by search engines to rank a website and display it in the search results.
At SGSS Design we make sure that all titles and meta tags are as they should be, and use services like Google Analytics to see how a website is performing by monitoring traffic and what search terms are being used to actually find your website.
