WEBSITE DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT
Our core market is small-to-medium size organisations that require an effective web presence, whether this be a basic site performing a simple PR function, an e-commerce site providing a comprehensive on-line shopping experience or a fully interactive site with database-driven functionality.
Developing a website can be quite an intimidating process, but our 'hold your hand' policy aims to make it as painless as it can be; whenever possible we'll avoid talking 'techno jargon' (if we can't avoid it, we'll explain what it means!) and provide a friendly, relaxed service.
There are numerous constraints that have to be considered when designing a website, and particular care must be taken to ensure that the 'content' of your site does not make it perform poorly - when this happens, potential customers may get bored and simply look elsewhere. Stunning graphics, filled with 'high resolution' detail may look wonderful on a designer's computer monitor, but they may cause a website to perform slowly; equally, poorly designed site 'architecture' can make it difficult for your customers to find what they're looking for - it's important that navigation around your site is both intuitive and accurate.
When we first talk to a client we review their requirements and expectations. Depending on the complexity of their requirement we may prepare an initial analysis for review, followed by a full proposal. Once our proposal is accepted draft concepts are prepared for discussion, refinement and final approval. Once a design concept is approved work commences on the site's build. We liaise closely with the client during all stages of the design & build process, ensuring that the end result meets with their expectations.
The sites we build are either 100% bespoke or utilise open source 'template' options which can enable a more cost-effective solution for clients with a tight budget.
