We have a large team of talented in-house developers creating bespoke, highly functioning websites and web based systems. With over a decade of experience in developing digital solutions for hundreds of clients, we have adapted and moulded aspects our systems to deliver a custom built project every time.
User Experience design (or UX) is a crucial part of the functionality and useability of a site, and just as important as the look. This is where we:
– Consider your content; what it is you want to communicate and how best to do this
– Develop wireframes to establish the basic structure of the website. These are visual guides that represent the skeletal framework of a website, much like an architectural blueprint.
Once the User Experience has been agreed, the User Interface; colours, content, imagery and transitions can be designed with the wireframes in mind.
These usually start life as a flat file but are changed to working prototypes to bring the wireframes to life.
Our developers can now build the site using the UX and UI as a reference. They will build both the front and back end on a ‘staging platform’ which allows you to not only see how the build is coming along, but enables you to start to add your own content before the site is live.
The system they use to build the website will depend on your requirements and will have been agreed upon in the definition phase. We usually recommend using WordPress for security and ease of use, but our developers are familiar with many platforms including Drupal, Laravel and Umbraco.
An optional extra but one we would always recommend to give you peace of mind! We are able to arrange hosting for your site, quarterly security updates to keep your website secure and performing efficiently and ongoing technical support should anything go wrong.
We make all of our sites ‘SEO ready’ and will ensure that things are setup correctly to be found by search engines in the initial stages.
To help to market your site further though, you may benefit from our ongoing Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) and PPC services. We look at all branches of your marketing together to ensure that you are getting the very best from your website.
