website development & design
Our unique and down-to-earth approach to creating websites means that you get a product that is designed from the ground up to fit your needs perfectly. Other developers will pitch you on how they can ‘enhance your web presence’, and ‘project your powerful image to the world’. We could use the same 'salesy' jargon, but we prefer to use plain language to explain what you should expect from your website and how you can best achieve this. We created our first website in 1997. That’s over 100 years ago (in dog years anyway), and we’re still going strong. That’s because we really know what we’re doing and we do it right. On time and on budget. First off we take the time to really understand your organization and how best to meet your requirements. From this we prepare a site report which contains the project's scope, strategic direction, design & functionality requirements, annotated site map, estimated production time and a detailed budget. This document becomes the full blueprint for your site. We’ll discuss this with you and incorporate any changes you might want. Next up comes the mock-up stage, where we’ll create a wireframe and 'screenshots' of the site. Once you’ve approved this, we code and build your website. Finally, we will make sure that you know how to update and manage your site. Sounds like a lot of work? Well it is, but it’s worth it, and the results speak for themselves. Our clients get a bespoke website, finely honed to perfectly suit their needs. Please take a look at our website portfolio to see samples of our work.
