Your website is often the personification of your brand, housing key messages and information. It’s your your shop window — sometimes quite literally — which is why it’s essential that you have a website that performs and reflects your brand’s principles. Designing and building these experiences is an artistic and scientific endeavour in equal measure — led by your audience’s needs and your business’ KPIs.

Web Design

How we work

Our web process is a combination of user interaction design, qualitative and quantitative research, responsive design, ecommerce development, and even mobile app development. Together, we can make sure that your customers have the best possible experience when interacting with your brand in a digital space.

  • 01. Explore

    Here, we conduct thorough market research and competitor analysis — generating profiles of your typical users and informing the direction for your new build. Looking at your existing site analytics provides us with an understanding of how visitors currently navigate your website.

  • 02. Plan

    Drawing on our body of research, we can generate technical specifications, briefs and project schedules. Here we'll produce sitemaps, user journey flowcharts, wireframes and interactive prototypes. We can test the design routes we propose to make sure it’s being used in a way that meets your goals.

  • 03. Create

    This is where we start to have fun. Using our wireframes as a guide we begin to think about how your brand can live in a digital space; how it looks, responds and feels through language, animation, interaction, illustration, photography and typography. The subtlety in these details makes all the difference to your audience's experience.

  • 04. Build

    Building the front and back-end of the final, approved design with responsiveness at the forefront of our minds. Our developers are proficient with a number of industry standard platforms and technologies including Wordpress, WooCommerce, Shopify and Magento. Once your site is built we'll painstakingly test the final build, applying bug fixes and tweaks right up to the point of rollout.

  • 05. Host

    We are able to host your website thanks to our partnership with hosting provider Steamhaus, one of the UK’s leading cloud consultancy.

  • 06. Grow

    We provide continued support and assistance with your site, whether it’s through email, over the phone or in person. As new technologies become available, and as we identify patterns in user behaviour (through heatmapping) and support requests, there may be further amends and design changes that need to be made to maximise the efficiency and accessibility of your site.
