D4designStudios <![CDATA[Featured Client: Four Seasons Dubai]]> https://www.d4designstudios.com/?p=2309 2017-08-01T19:31:46Z 2017-08-01T19:18:26Z For hotels & resorts image videos are no longer a ‘nice-to-have’ item on the marketing wishlist. It’s a must-have. Earlier this year our video-team flew to the United Arab Emirates, to shoot an exclusive trailer for the Four Seasons Resort Dubai at Jumeirah Beach. Our main objective for this project was: to capture the resort and its facilities from a new perspective and angle that would give you the feeling of escaping the city, as you are surrounded by gorgeous turquoise seas, lush greenery and fantastic company. We’re so excited that the Four Seasons Dubai has just released a series of videos we’ve produced. We hope you like it as much as we do.

D4designStudios <![CDATA[The new HTTPS Standard]]> https://www.d4designstudios.com/?p=2058 2016-12-14T15:31:55Z 2016-12-07T10:17:43Z Back in August 2014 Google has announced, that all sites served over the HTTPS protocol would rank higher than their competitors using regular HTTP (if you’re not familiar with HTTPS / SSL, please watch this video).

Google has just announced that January 2017 would mark a “turningpoint” forcing all website owners to upgrade their website to the HTTPS standard.

Here is why you should upgrade to HTTPS before January 2017:

  • Starting in January 2017 Google Chrome will mark sites using HTTP protocol as “unsafe” and label them with an X in the query list.
  • Get SEO / Google ranking advantage over your competitors.
  • More security for your website visitors, thanks to 256-bit SSL encryption.

At D4design Studios we recommend to all our customers that currently run their site on regular HTTP, to update to the new standard as soon as possible. In order to make this transition effortless and hustle-free, we offer an all-in-one HTTPS package from CHF 149 / year.

Our HTTPS package includes:

  • 256-bit SSL certificate for 1 year
  • Installation and configuration of the SSL certificate
  • Maintenance and Support.

Please click the following button to get started with the upgrade of your site.

Client Profile:

Natureskin is a young company which was founded by two doctors in 2014 in Zurich, Switzerland.
During their studies, they realized that most skin care products do not provide what producers promise, and that many skin care products even contain potentially harmful and damaging substances.
They wanted to change this. Their idea to produce their own cosmetic products emerged from their wish to indulge their skin with effective nutrients – with the power of nature. They wanted to provide individual beauty no mass production, but create a skin care line that offers more. After experimenting with their favorite ingredients, aloe vera and coconut oil, the basis for all their magic products was created – Marvel Remedy!

Unsere Aufgaben:

  • Website Design & Development natureskin.com
  • Integration Online Shop
  • Logo Design
  • Print Design and various Visuals
  • Social Media

Client Testimonial:

“D4design is thé place to go, for top notch design. Their team has given us a beautiful designed logo and website. Our ideas were quickly implemented and we were given valuable tips for our company. Overall D4design was excellent and great value for money.”

D4designStudios <![CDATA[Introducing: Retina Ready Websites]]> http://www.d4designstudios.com/?p=918 2016-03-18T20:21:09Z 2014-06-01T09:03:11Z With the recent release of the retina displays, Apple has brought high density screens to all of the product categories in its current lineup, significantly paving the way for the next wave of display standards. At D4design Studios we always try to push the envelope and stay ahead of the latest technology trends.  That’s why we introduce “Retina Ready Websites”. A Website that will meet the new standards set by Apple and other companies.

What is “Retina”?

Retina refers to a screen whose pixels are so closely packed that, when held at a ‘normal’ distance to a persons face, the human eye won’t be able to make out individual pixels. Apple is currently using this technology in all of its newly released devices such as: Mac, iPad, iPod and iPhone. Other tech companies have developed similar screens such as the Super AMOLED Display by Samsung.

What does this mean for Website owners?

The answer to this question is quite simple: Website owners must optimize their websites to meet the new standard “Retina Ready”. Websites must able to accommodate the larger pixel density.

What are the features of a Retina Ready Website?

A Retina Ready Website will check each image on the page to see if there is a high-resolution version of that image on your server. If a high-resolution variant exists, the Website will swap in that image in-place.

Featured Retina Ready Website:

First of all its important that you visit the link below with a Retina-Ready device. Otherwise you wont be able to see the difference. We are very proud to have recently completed a Retina Ready Website for a global asset management company in Switzerland. Have a look at the new Site of Alpës Capital SA: http://www.alpescapital.com

Interested in getting a Retina Ready Website? Fill out our pricing form today and we’ll contact you shortly with a free estimate and proposal.
