Website Design

to grow your business online

Most people want a really nice-looking website. We never get asked to design an ugly and clunky website. Of course, a great looking website is essential to support your business on the worldwide-web, but it has to do more than that. Your website needs to work for you.

Whether you are simply looking to build brand awareness, generate new enquiries or sell products and services online – we can help. We are not based in a far off country, or sitting in our bedroom with the curtains drawn. We’re a team of creative website design professionals here to help you get what you need from your website.

Starting Simple

Entry-level websites with room to grow.

If you are starting out and need a professional website to represent you online, we can help. Our websites are designed with the option to grow, so where you start, can be just the beginning of bigger and better things to come.

We can create you a starter site, with a few pages and just a simple contact form, to get you started. Your site will be secure, responsive and beautifully designed, with the ability to expand as your business grows.

Get Connected

Increase sales with better ways of connecting to your customers.

Your customers expect more from a visit to your website. Where once the ability to book, register, apply and transact online was something special, this is now par for the course in many industries.

We have a huge amount of experience in building these highly effective tools into the websites we create for our customers. If you want to take bookings, reserve a table, apply for membership or leave reviews, these are just some of the things we can do for you.

Got a different idea? That’s great too. We have helped many customers build a website with the functionality they need to better run their business. If you have an idea to share, we would love to help find a solution.


Sell your products and services online.

Selling online is the holy grail for many – a way to generating ongoing and recurring revenue, even while you sleep.

Whilst a totally custom ecommerce solution may require an investment of £50,000 or more, we can offer scalable alternatives at a fraction of the cost. If getting started quickly and affordably is your gateway to selling online, using an existing ecommerce platform is the way to achieve this.

We have helped many of our customers sell their products and services online using Woo Commerce – a scalable ecommerce platform designed to work with WordPress. With hundreds of addons to provide almost every kind of online shopping experience, we can build your online store exactly how you want it.

How much does a website cost?

How long is a piece of string? OK, that doesn’t sound too helpful, but the question of cost is too complex to answer off the back of a fag packet. We’re not involved with cheap website design that a freelancer might churn out for £500. If that is what you are looking for, you came to the wrong place. If you want a website that adds value to your business and want a team that will help you achieve this, we are the right choice for you.

In terms of budgeting for this, we price each project based on your requirements. How much creative design support you need, the extent of the technical aspects of what the site will actually do and the amount of content creation needed. As a ballpark guide, our price range is:



Professionally designed website, with around 10 – 15 pages in size and limited functionality.



Professionally designed website, with 15 -30 pages in size and more advanced functionality such as event booking, table reservation and application forms.



Professionally designed high-end websites with a high level of functionality including ecommerce and shopping carts, advanced booking and ordering features, restricted content for registered users.



Professionally designed corporate websites, 70+ pages in size, complex functionality requiring specific bespoke processes.

Not All Websites are Designed Equally

You can’t judge a book by it’s cover, and you can’t judge a website by it’s home page. In the same way how, a car looks gives you no idea of the quality of the engine, how a site looks is not a good indication of how well it will work.

Sadly, we see examples all the time where a great looking website lacks the basic technical essentials to perform well on Google and other search engines. Page titles, page descriptions, keywords, alt-tags and H1 tags may all sound like mumbo jumbo, but if you want your website to be found, this all needs to be done. Unfortunately, most business owners and marketeers don’t know about this kind of stuff and trust their website design agency to care of this, and many do not.

Fortunately for you, we ensure every website is built with these core technical aspects included. That means that your site is in optimal position to start climbing the Google search rankings from day one. And if you need more help with this, we have an SEO package to help you.
