Web Design

From initial concept through to the finished product, we help you every step of the way. We aim to ensure that your website is built to the highest standards and conforms to our philosophy:

  • Clean, simple effective design
  • User friendly sites
  • Each site unique
  • Search engine friendly
  • Cross-platform compatible

Every website is individually tailored to the client's needs, whether an individual or a large business. By working personally with you, we can get to understand how your business works which, for us, is a crucial part of the design process. At our initial consultation, we will discuss just what it is you want from the website. This covers such things as what kind of content, the target audience, an indication of the look and feel of the site and any other factors we both consider relevant to its creation. From here, we will prepare a mock up of how the site will look and give you some idea of timescale and final costs.

Once you approve the basic design concept, we will begin to work on putting the entire site together. Images often play an important rôle in the site's design and we can undertake any photographic work required. If you have any specialized artwork requirements, you can supply these in a variety of electronic formats, or they can be done in-house. Occasionally this might require a dedicated graphics designer. In this case, we can put you in touch with the right person for your needs.

It is important to us that you feel part of the whole process. We are always available to answer any question you might have and we always keep you informed every step of the way.

Points to Ponder

In order to help you through the process of creating your website, there are several issues you should consider. Several of the more important points are indicated below.

Content is king:

A website without good content serves no purpose, so think carefully about the message you want to communicate. In addition, you might like to think about images or other media such as audio and/or video that you might wish to incorporate

Target audience:

To whom are you addressing your message?

Look at other sites:

This can frequently be helpful. If you come across a site that you like the look of, or some aspect of its design, make a note of it and let us know. Whilst copying a site wholesale is not something we would ever do, we may be able to incorporate similar design features into your site

End result:

What do you want to achieve with the site?
