Web Development


Our strengths are simplicity through design coupled with technical excellence

Our focus is on producing functional, great looking websites and eCommerce solutions.

We specialise in providing services to small/medium sized businesses, non-profits and individuals, where a web presence can make the greatest difference.

Web design

We create beautiful but functional websites that produce results for you; whether to sell your products, generate interest or advertise your capabilities.

We use the latest technologies but believe in the simplicity of design to provide a long lasting and maintainable site for you. Our sites are also responsive; meaning they look great when viewed on the desktop, tablet or mobile device.

If you already have a website which uses the technologies we specialise in and need it to be extended; then look no further than us. Custom development is one of our strengths and we can produce modules, add-ons and themes as required.

Process

Our development process is designed exclusively around your needs.

webdevelprocess_design.pngAfter that we'll develop a concept model of your vision and then provide multiple mock-up and prototype designs to make sure that the design remains consistent with your vision throughout the development process

webdevelprocess_plan.pngWe work in an agile but low risk manner, producing weekly snapshots of your site so you can see real progress and provide feedback if necessary. We're also completely transparent and will highlight any issues along the way so that you can be confident that the project will succeed

Technologies

At the heart of most useful web sites lies some sort of Content Management System (CMS). These make the publishing and editing of web content easy to do allowing you to focus on information rather than the technology required to publish it. There are other benefits to using a CMS as well:webcloud1.png

  • Search Engine Optimisation (SEO). This means that search engines such as Google can find and reference the information on your site. There is a lot more to effective SEO but a CMS provides the basic tools to get you started.
  • Functionally rich. With a CMS you get a lot of complex functionality already built into it such as access control, image handling, cross browser compatibility and instant editing.
  • Customisable. CMS allow your site to be branded in the way you wish though the use of consistent styling and colour. A good CMS can also be extended to support any functionality through the development of modules and add-ons, so your specific needs can always be met.
  • Analytics. With analytics you can determine the number of visitors your site is attracting, where they are from and what they are looking at.

We only use the most popular and capable CMS's: Drupal, Wordpress and Joomla; with Drupal being our preferred system due to it's flexibility and capabilities.

SEO

Search engine optimisation (SEO) quite simply is the process of getting your website ranked on search engines.

How this is done depends on your needs - whether your focus is on global or local customers or social contacts - your competition and your current SEO status.

We specialise in organic growth through SEO rather than pay per click (PPC) campaigns since this delivers up to six times the long term value to you.
