Hosting can be confusing but we have vast experience of correctly specifying the correct setup (and hosting company), setting up the servers and managing their performance.
If we host your website we can ensure your website is backed-up on a daily basis so we can restore your website quickly should there be an issue. If we don’t host your website we can help you get this setup.
We can handle the whole domain purchasing, renewal and setup process to ensure your domains stay active and secured.
If you website has a CMS (WordPress or similar) we need to ensure that all the security updates are applied as soon as they become available. Our team can handle this.
Speed is an increasingly important element of every website. We can ensure your site loads quickly on all devices and connection types.
Every website is different. Our team have a “can-do” attitude and can adapt to your technical requirements.

We are of the viewpoint that responsive web design is no longer an optional extra but an intrinsic part of web development and should almost always be included in any project we build. Making websites with a responsive approach demands a more fluid approach to design, ensuring any element we design is carefully constructed to be equally usable on a narrow screen but also look great on larger wide screen devices. You will notice the site you are using now will reconstruct itself based on the width of the browser window, to ensure every element is not only usable but optimised for narrower screen sizes.
Animation is a fine art of making elements within a page load in an elegant way which makes the experience more enjoyable without frustrating the user. Using animations & loading effects we can make this whole process more elegant by delaying the display of each visual element until the resources it requires have been fetched in full. We can then add some slick movement to make the whole site feel polished without annoying the user. Sounds like a small thing but it makes a real difference to UX.
You might notice we love video. The advent of HTML 5 meant video has become a native part of HTML and allows us to use it much like any other element within a web page. The result is we can now achieve some really beautiful effects to capture the imagination of your audience. We have our own in-house videographer who is available to visit your business and capture the key elements of your business to help tell the story to your website visitors.
When we build websites we make sure every image element (where possible) is configured to use the new image tag to ensure the best possible version of the image is displayed depending on the device they are using. When using icons or other graphical elements like diagrams or other UI elements we try to use SVG graphics which are a vector-based format. These are infinitely scalable and have a very low file size which means they load very quickly. They also look really clear and crisp without any pixelation. Most new browsers support SVGs so we try our best to use them wherever possible.
Progressive enhancement is a strategy for web design that emphasises accessibility, semantic HTML markup, and external stylesheet and scripting technologies. Progressive enhancement uses web technologies in a layered fashion that allows everyone to access the basic content and functionality of a web page, using any browser or Internet connection, while also providing an enhanced version of the page to those with more advanced browser software or greater bandwidth.
We believe user interfaces (UI) should be simple, intuitive, easy to use and as minimal as possible to ensure the page content dominates each page within a website. We often use clever “takeover navigations” which are visible after clicking a menu icon (like ours) and like to think of clever ways to ensure each page within your website is easy to use and as tidy as possible. We also consider how the UI should behave on smaller screens to ensure those with small phones and big thumbs can still easily navigate!

Launching a new product or service and need a perfect launch campaign to spread the word and boost sales?
The first thing we need to do is take a look at your website and find out how it is built and hosted. This process normally takes a few minutes once we have the FTP details (don't worry we can explain!). Once we have established which platform it has been built in (WordPress, Magento etc), we can let you know whether we can help support the site on an ongoing basis. The site doesn’t need to have been built by us and 9 times out of 10 we will be able to support it. Once we have agreed the site can be supported by our team we will simply work out the number of hours you will need on a monthly basis (depending upon your requirements and our suggestions) to keep the site up-to-date and running correctly. We will allocate a proportion of these hours to the ongoing backup and security updates your site may require and then allocate the rest to developing the site.
