We’ve been hugely busy this year and are well aware that updates to our own website have been put somewhat on the backburner. Whilst the re-design and development of the Advanced Web Designs website was initially planned for the summer, along with our new ‘all singing all dancing’ Content Management System ‘Konnex’, the work has now had to be rescheduled for the winter, although due to the number of new enquiries we are currently receiving this may be delayed even further.With this in mind we have today taken the time to update our project portfolio so potential customers can see examples of some of the site we have been working on over the past few months.The projects we have added are a mix of e-commerce websites and content managed sites, all uniquely designed and developed by our in-house team here in Hertford (please note that at the time of writing 3 of the projects listed below are still awaiting the customer to fully populate their site prior to going live).

It was a day when Microsoft FrontPage was a good competitor to Macromedia Dreamweaver but was starting to be left behind.
