ABOUT

It’s our aim to bring high-end web design and development within the reach of small and medium sized businesses. We’ve worked with many types of business to provide an outstanding web presence and a serious competitive advantage.

Before we can do anything we need to find out about you and your business. A good old-fashioned chat is usually the best way. We’re a small company ourselves and only take on a few projects at a time. This means every web project we take on requires the attention of our entire team.

We provide solid and genuine advice, taking care to ensure that both our technically minded and our non-technical clients are well looked after. Understanding layout, conversion, analytical tracking, content creation, hosting, Google, social media or anything else relevant to your businesses success we will be sure it is implemented properly on your site and you understand how and why it works.

All out projects start from scratch to produce something beautiful and hardworking that will set your business apart. Every aspect of our design and code work is meticulously considered and crafted. Each website is a collaboration of our many years experience and the aspirations you have for your business. Take a look at our process outline.

Let’s Chat

Our websites start with nothing more complicated than a good chat. We’d love to hear about your business, your goals, your existing web presence and you.

Web design is a collaboration and we need to get to the bottom of what your business really needs. That way we can go forward knowing we’re all on the same page.

If you’re not sure exactly what you want – it’s ok, We can help devise a brief that will deliver the website you need within the budget you have in mind.

A detailed quotation

We know that every client and every business is different so it makes sense that every website we design is too.

We don’t have “set websites” and so we don’t have “set prices” either.

When we give you a quotation, we do our best to included options you can pick and choose so you get exactly what you need. NO one-size-fits-all templates.

Keyword research, Content strategy, photography, video creation, social media etc

At this point we start to research strategies that will succeed with search engines as well as your market. We find keywords that will work well, advise you on content writing and shoot beautiful photographs and structure video layouts to make sure your business stands out on the web.

Design & mockups

At this stage we work up the ideas into design mockups. Our designs are a special combination of our skill and experience as designers, your specific requirements, your market and the research undertaken in the previous stage.

Every design we produce is bespoke, carefully thought-out and meticulously crafted for your business. Approval

We’ll send you design mockups at key stages for comment and approval, making sure you’re always in the loop.

These mockups are like an architect’s drawings in principle. As in a drawing, things are easier to change at this stage than once they have been built (into a website or a house)

Coding

The site’s ready to build into a working website. We’ll write many lines of code in different code languages. Build quality is very important, so everything is written by hand.

A Content Management System (CMS) will be customized and integrated – allowing you to make changes yourself once finished.

Beautiful webfonts, code optimised for speed and SEO, cutting edge cloud-hosting – it all makes for the highest quality website.

Testing

We test your new site on multiple web browsers, tablets (e.g. iPad) and phones to make sure that it loads well and looks great in all scenarios. All browsers display things a little differently so we test as much as possible – you can too and we’ll show you a preview before the big day… website goes live

Your website goes live, but that is not the end of the story.

With a good content strategy for blogging, expert advice on SEO, link-building and social media – this is only the beginning of what the web can do for you and your business.

Your new website is the tool – now you have to use it.
