Web Design & Development

Working from our offices in Hull, East Yorkshire, before we even start thinking about the design and how it’s going to look, we put real thought into your goals and what it is you are trying to achieve from your new website, whether it be increased sales, increased enquiries or brand awareness.

After taking an initial brief, we spend the time understanding your business, understanding your customers (and websites audience) to enable us to put the foundations in place for a website that will make an invaluable difference and provide the results you need.

It is crucial to make sure that the user journey and accessibility are right from the start. We place a lot of emphasis on SEO (search engine optimisation) and content. Once these things have been mapped out and a structure is in place, we then bring it all to life with design visuals.

Content Management System

We use WordPress for small to medium website builds, and here’s why…

WordPress is very easy to use and has an intuitive interface. Adding new pages, blog posts, images, etc. on a regular basis is a breeze and can be done quickly. Because the technology is so simple, time spent on formatting is greatly reduced.

WordPress is browser-based. You can login from any internet connected computer and manage your site.

Search engines love WordPress because the code behind the CMS is very clean and simple, making it easy for them to read and index a site’s content.

With WordPress, you have control of nearly every aspect of your site and can easily make those simple updates with minimum experience.

Bespoke Website Build

There are times, especially for larger and more complex websites, with functionality that’s out of the ordinary, when WordPress isn’t enough. That’s not a problem for our Hull-based web development team.

We can build bespoke websites from the ground up. Our web developers are fully fluent in PHP. A cutting edge programming language, with over 300 million websites are built with this technology making it the most widely used and tested on the internet.

Fully Responsive

Did you know that Google has now included mobile responsive sites as part of their search engine ranking criteria? In a nut-shell this means that if your website isn’t responsive and optimised for mobile and tablets, Google will mark down your website, which means you won’t appear as high in the rankings as websites that are responsive.

Aside from this, on average 40% of UK internet traffic derives from handheld devices, and this figure is rising dramatically year on year.

Can you afford not to have your website optimised for this percentage of your users? Our team based in Hull, now ensure that all of our websites are now responsive as standard.
