Web design & development
Whatever it is you’re looking for, there’s guaranteed to be a website for it. Even something as mundane as ‘web design Leicester’ throws up 2.7 million results! The days of ‘if we build it, they will come’ are long gone and to get noticed today, you need to have something unique that sets you aside from the competition.
A website that suits
Whether you’re an established business and want to grow your online presence or a startup looking to build your online identity, your website has to suit your needs. There are three simple things we have to determine before creating a website: what are you hoping it will achieve, what makes it unique, and how will it complement your brand?
Once we’ve determined this, we can start you off on the process of web design and development and make sure you’re ready to take on the web. Our simple 4-step process
Design > Development > Testing > Launch!
This is where the fun starts! Once we’ve got a pretty good idea of your brand and what you want to achieve, it’s time to get to work. We appreciate there can be some tough design decisions to make, so we make it our job to guide you down the right path. Our years of experience have given us the insight into what good web design is, from the colour scheme and the layout to the functionality and user experience.
Everything we do is completely transparent, so you’ll never have to worry about what stage your project is in. In the design phase, we define the project scope, develop the wireframes and the site architecture and mock up the visual layouts. Our brains are here to be picked, so as well as design, we offer:
We’re pretty on the inside too! One you’ve approved the design, it’s time to code. We take a mobile-first approach to design and development meaning your site is fully responsive and will look great on any device. Our web developers ensure every bit of code is as clean and precise under the hood, as it is on the outside. We don’t believe in restricting your access either, so if you want to make a simple change, we’ll make it so you can. With our WordPress CMS (Content Management System) websites, no restrictions mean you’re in full control and you won’t be charged for simple edits like some companies do.
All of the sites we create are hosted securely and make use of the most up to date coding conventions, so you and your customers will be protected from potential cyber threats.
Tested to perfection
At this point, you’ll be able to browse through your site just like a customer would, but without it actually being live. Add things to your basket, download a brochure, Pin your favourite items to Pinterest – whatever it is we’ve built your site to do, try it out.
We also ensure you’re confident in the admin system too. We offer comprehensive training so that you and everyone working on the site will know how it all works.
We stress-test the site and squish any little bugs we find on the way ready for launch.
Houston, we have lift-off!
Crack open the bubbly; your website is live! At this point, you’ll be pretty confident that the site is ready to take on the web. For real piece of mind, we’ll be on hand to make sure the site runs smoothly and is well-maintained. For anything else, we’re on hand to help.
