Website Design and Development

We design, develop and build websites for businesses of all shapes and sizes, from basic one-page banner sites to fully content-managed e-commerce stores.

What sets us apart from many web design companies is we're with you all the way! From initial design and development through to managed website hosting, regular website maintenance and ongoing support, we don't just end our relationship when your website goes live.

The build process

We start by working with you to understand your goals. Are you looking for an improvement in search engine ranking? To make your site easier to navigate? Or does your old site just need a refresh?

Once we understand this, our designer will work on initial design mockups for you to approve. At this point, any colours, fonts, logos, and images you'd like to include can help the design come together. We can revise these initial designs as often as we need to get them to look just right.

Upon approval, we'll start building the design into a working website on our development servers, integrating a Content Management System (CMS), and ensuring all elements of the site can be updated in future. The development site will be shared with you to see how it's coming together and allow you to work on content before going live.

The site is tested on various devices and web browsers to ensure everything functions as expected. We'll then make it live on your hosting or our managed website hosting service, subject to your future website maintenance requirements.

All our sites are mobile friendly (responsive)

Did you know Google searches are now performed on mobile devices more than desktop computers?

Therefore, your website must work on mobile phones and tablets; Google even ranks mobile-friendly websites higher than those that don't. We have been building responsive websites for several years and use the latest techniques to ensure your site will look great and work perfectly, whether viewed on a desktop computer or mobile phone.

Why use Content Management Systems (CMS)?

A content management system allows users with suitable access to make additions and edits to your website content whenever required. We feel this is so important for you to remain in control of your website and not rely on us to make simple changes, although we're always happy to do so!

There are many great systems out there, and we'll always recommend including a CMS in your website build; whether it be WordPress or Joomla, we'll provide training for you and your team on how to use it, although, with most systems, they are easy to get started.
