We’ve been developing websites using the Bootstrap Framework for many years. Even our WordPress sites tend to be developed around the Bootstrap framework.
If you’re specifically looking for a Bootstrap Website Design then get in touch. Similarly, if you’re not happy with the support of your current Bootstrap website design then give us a call.
Over the last few years, Bootstrap has become an increasingly popular front-end development framework. More and more developers and designers continue to get on board. We’ve been using it since it’s launch in 2011. The framework allows for rapid, responsive development that is consistent and well supported by the development and design community. We outline the major benefits of Bootstrap below:
Undoubtedly one of the biggest advantages of using Bootstrap is the speed of development. Quicker development time means lower cost to our clients.
Rather than coding from scratch, Bootstrap enables you to utilise ready made blocks of code to help you get started. Combine that with built in responsive design, cross-browser compatibility and CSS-Less functionality and you’ve got a robust framework that saves many hours of coding.
Mobile devices continue to grow in popularity year on year. The need to have a responsive website is now not even questionable.
Creating mobile ready websites is a breeze with Bootstrap thanks to the fluid grid layout that dynamically adjusts to the proper screen resolution. There is virtually no work that needs to be done to achieve proper responsiveness.
Using Bootstrap’s ready made classes, you can specify how many spots in the grid system you want each column to occupy. Then, you can specify at which point you want your columns to stack horizontally rather than vertically to display properly on mobile devices.
Bootstrap was actually founded on this principle. It was originally developed by a few Twitter employees as a framework to encourage consistency across internal tools. Co-Founder Mark Otto later realised it had potential beyond just an internal toolkit and released the first open-source version in August 2011.
Bootstrap ensures consistency regardless of who’s working on the project. In addition, results are uniform across platforms so output remains the same whether you’re using Firefox, Chrome or Internet Explorer.
Bootstrap can be tailor made according to the specifications of your project. Developers have the ability to pick and choose the features that are needed and the rest can be ignored.
Bootstrap has a huge support community behind it so you can usually get help when you run into issues. Furthermore, Bootstrap itself is being continuously updated and the creators have been really good about putting out timely updates.
As the framework continues to develop, the reasons to use Bootstrap keep mounting. For more details on the Bootstrap Framework see http://getbootstrap.com/

When we started working with Flexcrete, they were facing a number of marketing issues. There were no Brand Guidelines in place which in turn meant there was no consistency in branding across product literature and related marketing material. The Brand styling was dated and their existing website was out of date and based on technology that wasn’t compatible with mobile and tablet browsing. At the same time, Flexcrete was expanding rapidly and bringing new products to market.
The first thing InForm did was to work with the Directors and implement Branding Guidelines. We developed templates for all Marketing Literature and scrapped in-house colour laser printing in favour of low cost commercial printing, a move which saved both time and money. We implemented a Marketing Strategy based on a more Customer Centric approach. We achieved this by devising a simple colour coding system relating to the market sectors within which the Flexcrete Products are sold. This colour coding system was then reflected in the website right through to all product literature.
