Accessible Website design

Custom designs

Custom designs evolve, often from templates (web site shells). b17design excels in developing custom designs from existing templates to reflect the personality of your business.

Light and White

The layouts b17design produces use CSS and Xhtml. Each layout consists of a number of small files, often with images embedded in the CSS, subtle use of colour and plenty of white space. Small files mean that sites load fast to maintain viewer interest. The use of colour draws to eye to the extensive use of white space, which helps keep the page looking clean and easy on the eye, whilst also improving readability.

Welcome to b17design, creating accessible web site designs using the best technologies for small business everywhere.

Effective business web design is not just about creating stylish looking web pages, its more about creating a window for your business, a place to show your abilities, services or products. Somewhere that your potential customers can see what you are offering and somewhere that your transaction process can begin.


By using the technologies relevant to your business needs, b17design creates web pages that will work in all main browsers - Internet Explorer, FireFox and Opera and that will work in all main search engines - Google, MSN, Yahoo etc.

Most b17design sites are built using tableless technology. This means that to those without the latest operating system and/or browser (the majority of Internet users), our sites render correctly. This makes the designs extremely accessible to everyone, therefore your potential client base is maximised.
