Website of the Week: Decimus Design



This week's website of the week goes to Decimus Design. Decimus Design is an architectural practice based in south west London.

Senior Project Manager Lanara started by creating a fully responsive website, using full background images and graphical icons for the home page. The client took and provided all of the high-resolution images that feature on the website, meaning that they are genuine and a true representation of the work they carry out and materials they use.

The website uses strong imagery, and the website colour scheme is neutral in order to let the images take centre stage. Each page is designed uniquely, and the gallery layout is easy for people to pick out projects they want to view more of.

The website features a website form for people to fill out for enquiries and a Google map for the location of the business.


The website design features hover over effects on the projects page, which adds a bit of elegance and class to the feel of the website. The overall effect is that it's very high end, and the projects are of a high quality.

The website works as a portfolio to show case the work carried out and to encourage anyone looking to get in touch to go to the contact page and fill out the form. The about page provides information on the company, what they specialise in and the business aims.

The website also passes Google's mobile-friendly test with flying colours, meaning that the website is responsive to the device it's being viewed on. This is a must when it comes to people viewing the website on the go!


The client kindly awarded us 5 out of a possible 5 stars and said: "I don't know how you could improve. Everything was great."
