Website Design & Development
Website Design and Development is one of our areas of expertise. We pride ourselves on creating custom websites that are uniquely suited to each client. Part of this is that we are very good at creating contrasting designs for clients to choose from. The clients are then able to either choose a specific design to use or combine different elements from different designs into one final design. On top of this we help clients position and layout content in their sites and offer expert guidance to make site content rank with other similar sites from target fields.
Another key skill that we use is creating bespoke WordPress websites. We build the site in HTML/CSS first and then convert it to WordPress using a base theme which we can then alter and manipulate to create bespoke and unique sites. We listen to exactly what the client wants and then we incorporate those functionalities in the site. We can make any part of the site easily editable and also integrate robust, regularly updated plugins to connect the sites to external APIs/providers such as Mailchimp and various social media.
As a result of us coding the sites ourselves we can guarantee that the sites are coded with care and using enhanced and efficient techniques which in itself helps websites rank highly on google.
Finally, in terms of the whole process we like to treat it as a personal experience, you will talk directly to the team leader working on your project, this person will have a complete understanding of the project. As a lot of the themes that we create have aspects that the client has requested to be able to update regularly, we offer guidance on how to use the website either through written documentation or videos specifically created for your website, as the website is launched we are available for questions and advice for a reasonable time afterwards.
A typical example of the workflow that you could expect:
- Initial Conversation had with the client about the project. In this conversation we talk about client’s wishes and our recommendations, we also take this opportunity to recommend suitable hosting/domain providers if needed.
- Three mockup designs are created and shared with the client. The client is then able to choose between the three or to combine different sections of the designs.
- Once the design has been agreed, the site will be built on our development server.
- The site will be shared with the client and minor alterations will be able to be made
- The site is then transferred to pre-purchased hosting, linked to domain name and then made live.
