Website design greater than
the sum of its HTML.

Can your brand and website design affect your business? We know they can; your website is more than an online presence, your brand and corporate image communicates your professionalism, your passion for your business, your dedication to your clients and can actively encourage business and/or generate leads.

Website Design

We can't reiterate enough that every website design we create represents the individual objectives of our clients. This is because we learn their business, what they want to achieve, and don't reproduce their site following the latest website design fad. Working from our offices in Chiswick, London and the Jewellery quarter, Birmingham we're well placed to service our clients nationally.

The website designs below were designed and programmed inhouse. Below are examples of recent website design projects for which we’ve planned the marketing strategy, rebranded the company, programmed and constructed the websites.

Website Design, the technical bit

Technically the website design is nothing without the 'technical bit' to make it work. We have inhouse dedicated programmers that, dependent of the objective of your website, will be involved at the briefing stage right through to the website completion.

Your website is programmed from the ground, up, no borrowed code, no template ‘all things to all men’ off-the-shelf products. Your website is designed and programmed with your objectives and requirements from scratch. We understand that our clients are not programmers themselves and therefore we also speak plain English. Your programming is completed inhouse and by a dedicated team.

We can talk you through every technical aspect from why we design at a specific resolution to what language we program with and why; while you are safe in the knowledge your site is being constructed to the highest industry standards.

For those amongst you that understand website design technical speil:

  • We construct your website design using CSS (Cascading Style Sheets). CSS is used in conjunction with XHTML to construct your site. The use of CSS brings many advantages including advanced features, lower file sizes and search engine favour this type of construction.

  • Your website design is programmed using XHTML which among other advantages also increases your search engine ranking.

  • RSS feeds can be added to your website for up-to-date content fed from other online sources to share industry news, and to keep your site content current.

  • Your website is programmed using ASP.NET for the more advanced features such as managing content on your site. Your website programming is written from scratch and so we can program a feature to operate in a way that suits you and your customers.

  • Your website database to hold information is MS SQL, it holds the information from your website such as customer’s information and dynamic content. We can also program features that allow you to export client information from your database as an excel spreadheet for use with other marketing campaigns.

  • Your website may use Javascript and AJAX to allow content to change without reloading the website page.

  • If your site would benefit from using full animated interactive multimedia we use Adobe Flash. We can also program with Actionscript which is the programming language created for Flash.


Website Design, Accessibility

Paramount to your website design is its level of accessibility and usability. We adhere to the guidelines set out in the WCAG (Website Content Accesibility Guidelines) and test every site against the W3C (The World Wide Web Consortium). The advantages for your website design include better search engine ranking and cross platform compatibility.
