Responsive web design
Our websites are individually designed. Fully responsive to work on desktops and mobiles devices. It is likely that the next person to access your website will be viewing it on a mobile device. To succeed with Google mobile indexing and SEO today, your site needs to at least work on mobile devices now that Google only uses mobile indexing for websites. All of our standard websites are designed with this in mind. We can also design purely for mobile including mobile eCommerce and stand alone.
Unless we jointly decide otherwise, I design every page from scratch based on your brief. I will never download a pre-made website template and pass it off as my own work.
Learn through training
We offer training with all of our WordPress designs projects. As a content management system (CMS) we can teach you how to use and administer your website.

Most of the websites we build are WordPress designs. As WordPress is a content management system (CMS) you can have access to your login area. This will allow you to access your own administration to update content.
We are specialised in all aspects of WordPress, including eCommerce (Woocommerce) and advanced plugins.
content management systems (CMS)
It is a requirement these days that a website must be dynamic to be effective. A website that is kept up to date with well written content will encourage returning visitors. Content management systems (CMS) are ideal for providing editors with the tools to upload their copy and images without the need of a website developer.

Our Design Process
A strong brief is important for both our customer and designer. We meet or telephone you to discuss your requirements and if needed advise you on the best way forward. We will take your design, marketing, user experience and business direction into consideration when providing you with advice. If you have written their brief we will go through it and discuss your requirements with you. We will then provide a full quotation for you for your consideration.
Research and Documentation
Once you have agreed the quotation and you have paid your project deposit, we move into "Research and Documentation". This gives us a period of time to work through all aspects of the brief and to document the project. We design your project in a 2D format and provide you with the design document for agreement.
Once you have agreed and signed off the 2D design we start to build the framework and integrate the design. We build all the elements and upload all the required plugins to provide the required functionality as agreed in the quotation and brief. We then provide you with a link to the website so you can check functionality. We request your feedback and make any final tweaks before signing off the work. We then arrange when to set the website live.
