Website design – turning dreams into practical realities

Brainstorming to briefing, the process that we take to make sure that your website meets the demands of your customers is a lengthy and detailed one. We take your priorities, your intentions, your expectations and your preferences and weave them into a website that reflects your brand perfectly.

Not only will it fit the look you want and be modern and vibrant, but it will meet the needs of an increasingly tech-savvy consumer. That means it will work across all devices, will load quickly and will be easily navigated and understood. Simplicity for the customer is the key – but the more technical bits are well and truly hidden away.

Best of all the process is one of collaboration throughout. This means that at every stage you see the steps of progress. Sketches, moodboards, wireframes, mockups, design ideas, content and eventual website construction. It is all created by the team – and that includes you as the client. The final result is one that you can feel a part of and will meet the expectations that we have established throughout – there will be no surprises. Except perhaps the delighted reactions of your customers.

Going forward your website can be added to and changed as required. The joy of digital is the fact that nothing is set in stone. We can help you to understand the customer friendly changes you can make such as adding new products or we can work with you to make more complicated alterations to your website as required. The flexibility of your website is a key component to your success.

Your website should be a thing of beauty and say everything you want – simply and with minimal design.

Templated Websites

One of the easiest, quickest and cheapest approaches to website design is to use one of the many templates available. These are designed to make it possible to create a website that looks the part in a short space of time and will have all the features you need for a basic informational website. Many will even allow additional features such as e-commerce platforms, portfolios and customer interaction options such as forums. With our help you can choose the template that will work for your needs and take advantage of the cheaper overall costs.

  • Cheaper
  • Faster
  • Great looking
  • Simple to maintain
  • Flexible

Bespoke Websites

A tailored approach to website design is ideal for any business that requires a standout and individualised look to their website. It is also perfect for any website that requires something unusual or unavailable via the template options. The process for design of a bespoke website involves talking through your requirements, understanding your business, designing briefs and creating a look that is as much a branding exercise as it is a coding one. The end result is a website that will reflect your business, act in the way you want it to and be future-proofed for where your business is heading in the months and years to come.

Wordpress is probably the best known and most widely used template-type website design tool and is more commonly referred to as a content management system as it allows users to alter content easily and without specialist website design knowledge. It started off as a free and open source designer tool aimed at bloggers and has become much more powerful and useful to all levels of website design and but is still most often used as a blogging platform.

All of the coding is developed by the community and is free to all users and therefore offers users (even those with minimal experience) to create websites that allow quick and easy updating as required.

A WordPress template can be set up in as little as an hour or two and the website owner can be adding content as they wish straight away including images and video. The templates can be customised and offer a flexible approach for anyone with little technical knowledge.

To make the most of WordPress it makes good sense to let an expert take over the set up and offer you a tool that you can continue to use that will be free of glitches.

Umbraco is an open source content management system design that runs on the Microsoft platform and is considered one of the very best options when it comes to flexibility and efficiency. It is known to be free of many of the restrictions that plague other free to use website design options as it began as a website design tool rather than a blogging tool, like WordPress.

Umbraco is an open source website design tool and does not use HTML, making it a front end content system and gives it a cleaner feel and understandable look. However if you want more flexibility in terms of the design, you need to understand source code – something that many people will need help with. Your designer may also have to purchase certain aspects to enhance the look and feel of the website to meet your needs.

Umbraco can also be used for data pushing to apps making it highly interactive and useful for businesses that require customers to have access to their website wherever they are. Best of all Umbraco has a wonderful community of users who ensure that the service is robust and improved as problems are identified.

For anyone with an e-commerce business, Magento is the perfect platform, offering all the flexibility you need, with the powerful tools today’s retail businesses require. Using open source technology, users can also take advantage of marketing tools, SEO options and even management tools to make running your business even easier. Retailers can take advantage of a branded shop front, a scalable solution, promotions and discounts during the sale process and plenty of payment options for customers.

Magento is considered to be one of the best shopping cart platforms and is available as an open source, free option for small businesses through to larger scale retailers that require more bespoke approaches to their online selling space. With plenty of plugins and themes available, this is a flexible platform that can be built to suit the needs of the user – however it is the more tailored approach that may require the services of an expert.

It is when Magento is integrated with other systems or requires a more custom approach that it becomes complicated and more powerful. Having an expert to design and watch over your site will ensure that it remains active for your customers and mean no down time that could mean lost sales.
