Website design and development
Although our primary focus is content, we’ve been creating websites since the early days of the Web and have experience of working with organisations both large and small.
More than anything else, we take a marketing approach to what we do – understanding that websites don’t just have to look good, they have to deliver the goods.
As a marketing company (rather than being simply a website design company) we’re focused on all aspects of website creation, not just one.
Real marketing expertise
Many websites fail to deliver real benefits because they were undertaken just as design projects. A website shouldn’t, in itself, be the solution – but the end result of a broader marketing-driven process, which includes understanding customers, competitors, search optimisation, your content strategy and, of course, your business goals. This approach takes more time – but not only does it deliver better results, it also delivers a website that stands the test of time (as much as it’s possible) – one that is a stronger platform for future growth.
We created our first commercial website back in 1996 and have been building them ever since.
Great websites need great design
Great design is one of the key things which sets a website apart. It creates confidence. It engenders trust. It makes your content easier to find. It encourages people to connect with your company. Quite simply, design is one of the most important elements of a website. Our websites are all created by experienced, fully trained, designers – people who understand website design in depth, are formally trained and have dozens of websites under their belts. We work almost exclusively with business-to-business organisations, with other key clients in the charity sector.
Website content management
Many companies rightly want to update websites themselves, without having to learn any specialist skills. We use the Perch content-management system, to enable them to do this.
Perch and Perch Runway specialists
We’re a registered development company for Perch and Perch Runway. Perch is an easy-to-use content-management system which is designed for smaller websites – while Perch Runway is intended for larger, more complex websites. Perch is not only easy to use, it offers our clients a degree of flexibility we’ve not found in other website content-management systems.
Responsive website design
Today’s designers have to face the challenge of a Web where people browse to websites using not just desktop computers, but also tablets and mobile phones
Responsive design for a multi-device world
As standard, all of the websites which we create are ‘responsive’. This means that the design of the website adjusts automatically, based on the width of the screen on which it is viewed. So, our websites always work well on phones, tablets and desktops – ensuring that however people are viewing your website, they’re always getting the best experience.
