Development.

Award-winning web design and build capabilities.

Success online doesn’t come by chance. It involves a coordinated and considered approach to digital marketing, starting with a website. In today’s marketplace, brands can’t possibly operate without one. But now websites need to offer more. A well-developed website is no longer enough in this age of the customer – a website must capture a brand’s spirit in an enticing and engaging way, personalising the experience for each user as well as attracting those visitors in the first place. It needs to work harder than ever; it must always resonate with its audience.

Since our formation, web development has been at the core of our offering. We pride ourselves on developing ideas and solutions that make our clients’ websites stand out. With a focus on return on investment, our track record shows that our sites perform – through strategic thinking and creative use of technology, they're built to inspire responses from their intended audiences.

Websites and applications.

We work with our clients throughout the website design and build process, from initial concept development and requirements gathering, to providing build, hosting, support and on-going strategy for your web presence. Working side-by-side as a partnership means that what we can truly create something that makes an impact with the people that encounter your online brand.

With user experience, creative design, interaction development, and back-end development capabilities, we can offer specialist expertise in every aspect of creating your site. And we do so via a range of award-winning and feature-rich content management systems, including Umbraco and Sitecore. Our team are always on hand to provide impartial guidance and help you choose the best solution based on your needs and resources.

Interaction development.

Web pages are no longer static – through the use of latest technologies such as HTML5, CSS3 and WebGL, we bring pages alive with animations, video and user interaction. Putting the user in control of how they obtain the information they seek in the best possible way. Our team of front-end and interaction developers can bring the best of these technologies for your web projects while remaining accessible. Keeping page load times down, but still providing a feature-rich user experience and journey from the offset. Whether this is simple use of parallax scrolling all the way up to product explosion diagrams with 360 degree viewing, zoom and part identification.

E-commerce.

With over 70% in the UK buying via digital, it’s no longer a luxury to sell online but more of a requirement to service your customers when and how they want. A twenty-four-seven shop window seen and used by people across the world, even when you are sleeping, is therefore a must-have. However, e-commerce can be tricky business. We have a detailed understanding of how customers buy online and have an experience of building successful online shops that help new and existing businesses sell better online. This is a critical aspect for online brands who are in the business of selling their products to wide audiences where the competition is also worldwide.

Back-office integration.

Integration is a key component of most of our web projects – even from the most basic integration of Google Maps and YouTube to more complex and elaborate integrations of company databases, CRM, ERP and membership systems. Our technical team have experience integrating different systems and extending the functionality in both Umbraco and Sitecore.

Approach.

We approach every project with a user-centric approach – focusing how end users will best interact with the website in terms of accessing, browsing and interacting, and returning to your website - most of all converting into a customer, lead member or brand advocate. We spend time finding out who our clients’ audiences are, what they want (and not want) and create the website accordingly. By combining our creative and development teams, we can bring the best out of a website and go beyond the exceptional.

QA and testing.

Making sure your website, content and functionality works is a critical factor in any web project. That’s why we invest in quality assurance and testing. With a dedicated team and both manual and automated processes, including continuous integration, every line of code goes through considerable review before making its way to a live site. It'll be tested further from an experience design perspective so that once it speaks to your audience, it will have a positive impact that lasts.
