scientific and technical website design

Web design by CookandKaye
specialists in online education, mapping and scientific websites

Our core business is web design. We work to current W3C international guideleines for HTML to produce attractive, durable websites that have the broadest possible compatibility with modern browsers. Typically we test against five browsers on three operating systems before releasing any of our sites into the wild!

Our sites are flexible and can be delivered to a range of platforms including mobile devices and the printed page.

Most of our sites are designed and built entirely by us, but we also offer a code testing and verification/correction service to other design houses. Please contact us if you are interested in this service.

Below are some of our most recent projects, you can browse some of the others by category in the website design menu, or view an archive of our websites from the last 15 years in the endorsements section.

Pretty much all of the page content - banners, text, beers are customisable, and driven by an extensive (but easy to use) administration section. The public page content is marked up with 'rich results, providing meta-data to improve search engine performance.
