Great websites encourage action.
A website is the foundation of your Internet presence. It’s one of the first things that your audience will see when they’re looking for a product or service that your business offers. Whether you are looking to launch the first website for your business or you want to refresh an existing site, it’s important to consider your audience and to align your website with their needs in mind.
A great website brings together a combination of good design, graphical elements that capture attention, engaging content and skilled marketing techniques.
In today’s modern world up to 80% of the visitors to your website will be using a mobile or tablet device. It’s vital that your website is designed responsively. When we say ‘responsive web design’, what we mean is that the layout and the content of the website resizes to suit the size of the screen on which it is being viewed. This helps users on smaller devices to still enjoy and engage with your website, whilst ensuring that they have a simple and logical experience when navigating through your website.
Above all, your website should be simple and easy to use for both your visitors and also for you as the business owner. No matter how complex your products or services are, visitors to your website should be able to easily navigate the website and find the information that they need, within just a few clicks. From an administration perspective, the website should be easy for you and any members of your team to update with your latest information.
WordPress is our software of choice when it comes to web design. WordPress currently powers around 31% of all websites on the Internet - which is quite a staggering number. This means that on average, just under 1 in 3 of the websites that you visit are likely to be running on WordPress.

Our WordPress Web Design Approach
Your project kicks off with the Discovery stage. We explore your requirements to establish the brief for your website project. We’ll take time to understand your business and your ‘why’. We’ll consider your audience and their needs.
The next step is to create a Sitemap, which is a simple architecture laying out all of the pages and their relationship to each other on your website. The Sitemap allows everyone to have an overview of how your new website fits together.
Now we move to the browser and we put together a prototype of your website. This will typically consist of the home page and a couple of inner pages. This shows the initial layout of elements on the page and is in black and white.
This is where the magic starts to happen. We’ll flesh out your new web design project with splashes of colour and start creating the website around your content. Again, we’ll have your audience in mind when it comes to designing your site.
During the development stage, this is where we carry out any of the more technical tasks. We’ll review the website and test it thoroughly with you. Any final tweaks are then made to the website, getting it ready to launch.
Your new website is ready to launch! We’ll help you to get it live and available for all to see. We support your website launch and our highly recommended WordPress Care Plans provide you with continued support on a monthly basis.
