Web Design & Web Development

Making a great first impression to capture your customers attention online has always been key for any type of business, but in today’s online marketplace it’s vital. Your website is most often the first place any customer visits to find out more, enquire or purchase your services or products.

With thousands of businesses presenting themselves to web users at the click of a button, the typical user will click away from a website that doesn’t arrest their attention, fast.

Responsive
More than eight million people use a mobile device to access the internet every day in the UK, which means having a website that works on these devices is a must. Your website will be responsive, it will look great and be easy to use on any portable device (iPad, smartphone etc).

Easy to Manage
We use WordPress. With WordPress, you’ll be able to easily manage and update your content from day one.

WordPress is now powering over 39% of all websites!

  • 38% of people will stop engaging with a website if the content/layout is unattractive.
  • Once your page loads, users form an opinion in 5 seconds.
  • ​​​​​​​40% of people will choose a different search result if the first is not mobile friendly.
  • 94% of people cited web design as the reason they mistrusted or rejected a website.
  • 47% of website visitors check out a company’s products or services page before looking at any other sections of the site

1.

The brief

The first step is ultimately the most important one, as it involves a solid understanding of your company. It involves a good understanding of you – what your business goals are and how the website can be utilised to help you achieve those goals.

2.

Brainstorming

This involves the creation of a sitemap. Creating the sitemap ensures that you’ve considered all the key pages in the site, showing their relationship to each other and defining how the sites overall navigation should be structured.

3.

Design

A site aimed at teenagers, will look much different than one meant for a construction company. As part of the web design phase, it is also important to incorporate brand elements such as the company logo and colours to help strengthen the identity.

4.

Development

The homepage is developed first, this creates a ‘template’ that the other pages will follow.

The website will feature a Content Management System (WordPress) which will allow you to update your website as and when you need to.

5.

Testing/Feedback

Before the site is launched, it will be placed on a development server where only internal audiences and anyone with the link can view it.

Testing of the site is critical as there will inevitably be minor issues that need to be addressed before the site goes live.

6.

Launch

The purpose of the launch phase is to prepare the website for public viewing.

This requires final polishing of design elements, deep testing of interactivity and features and, most of all, consideration of the user experience.
