We are a website design company based in Somerset who design and build great web sites.
Our websites are beautiful, fast loading and easy to use.
We offer a complete service including web design, development, hosting & search engine optimisation.
We also offer a wide range of web development services to other graphic design and web design agencies.
Website design is what we do, love doing, and do best of all. We see website design as a process, part scientific part artistic.
Our website design process starts with us gaining as much information as we can about a project. This analysis phase involves us meeting you as often as is necessary and a fair bit of digging around on the internet. We work with you to understand your business goals and aim to identify these early on so that we can think about search engine optimisation from the very start and include this in the web design process.
Next we get our thinking caps on and we start to design the structure of the web site. This involves structuring the different content and functions of the site in to logical areas grouping in to categories and subcategories. This leads on to the design of the navigation for the website which is kept intuitive and easy to use.
Now its time to work on the visual aspects of the web design. The graphic design team work on developing a stunning graphical appearance either from scratch or within the bounds of existing branding and style guidelines. They do not work in isolation as we believe its important at this point to have collaboration between the graphics team, the web development team and the client.
The final and possibly most important step in the web design process involves the design of the copy (website content) for each of the pages. By planning the copy rather than allowing it to become an after thought we enable the creation of structured high quality copy that will keep users engaged and add to the overall quality of the site. The importance of this can not be underestimated, if the copy is rubbish then it can ruin even the most beautiful web design.

Web development is the name we give to the actual construction process of a web site. That is the creation of the code, images, databases and files etcetera that make up the web site.
We have a comprehensive understanding of all areas of web development. All of our web development is done in-house, writing code from the ground up, we don't like to rely on third party software or programmers preferring to have complete control and understanding of every line of code. This helps you with your web development in the following ways:
We develop our websites using the industry standards that are set out by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). Working with the W3C specifications leads to a better quality of website with increased functionality across different web browsers and operating systems.
Working with web standards also creates clean well formed websites which are easier for search engines to access meaning better indexing and as a result better search results.
All of our web development adheres to the standards set out by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C)
We believe a website should be accessible to as many people as possible. This means taking in to consideration people who are visually impaired and people who are mobility impaired. Check out some of these resources we use and guidelines we adhere to:
This means making sure that a website is user friendly and can be used easily by the greatest number of people possible. It means making sure that its obvious how to use a website so that people don't have to think, don't get stuck or cant find the information they're after. It means designing for people with slow Internet connection speeds not just people with the latest broadband connections. It also means designing for all operating systems, web browsers and devices that access the web.
As well as writing our own websites from scratch we can also help others with their web development. We off a comprehensive range of web programming services and are able to help bring other peoples web designs and ideas in to fully working web applications. We are big fans of PHP and MYSQL and given the choice this is what we would recommend for any web application. We offer all of the following web programming languages and technologies:
So now you have an amazing website you need to get people to see it and be turned in to customers for your business. There's no point in having a website if nobody is going to find it this is when you need some professional internet marketing. Your website needs to be on the first page of search engine results for your key search terms.
We believe in organic website promotion and we build our websites with SEO (search engine optimisation) as the foundation of any web design project so that this may occur. This foundation is easy for us because our websites use semantic mark-up and are written in standards compliant XHTML which the search engines love.
Knowing how your website is performing is also extremely important so we integrate directly in to the Google analytics system. This provides us with a wealth of information regarding the performance of a website including how its being found and used. This allows us to continually update and improve a website so that it is always on top for search engine optimisation.
We are able to help with both onsite and offsite search engine optimisation and can help with other aspects of search engine marketing including running your pay per click advertising campaigns.
