Web Design

Website design and production, based in Bath and Bristol

When we talk about ‘designing a website’ we are encapsulating a workflow of several stages, we can guide you through some or all of these stages, from initial concepts and analysis to production, launch and management. At each stage our accuracy and ability is unrivalled. Some simple websites need very little in the way of back end framework and can cost as little as £150 whereas our high end offerings are reassuringly expensive and can include any up-to-date technology.

Design

Web design to the standard you'd expect from a large agency at local prices. Unrivalled customer experience and fast response. The web is a fast moving place, styles come and go, user expectation and speeds are ever increasing, our designer's eye of current design trends will make sure your website looks contemporary and professional.

Content management systems and blogs

A lot of our clients find it more cost effective for us to manage the websites once published. For a reasonable fee billed monthly we can promise rapid responses to the changes you need. Often this is more cost effective than a full content management system (CMS).

If you want to manage your website yourself, whether it is a simple WordPress blog or a full blown CMS based on the MODx framework we can put you in control.

An aside: You will see that a lot of the sites listed below are built in WordPress or another content management system. WordPress, indeed any CMS, was absolutely the Thing To Have for a long time. What could be more attractive than having control of your own site and not having to wait on the busy schedules of your web developer? It is becoming apparent that a. small business owners are just as pressured for time as any web manager and b. when your website is professionally managed there's a lot of unsung work that goes into making sure images are exactly right and that type styles follow your corporate guidelines. So please consider carefully whether you want to spend the extra £200 or so on adding the CMS layer or whether that money would be better spent over the lifetime of your site by getting us to manage it manually.
