We bring you extensive experience in planning, designing and developing websites, offering a complete service from concept to completion.

Whether your site is large or small, our team of specialists will make sure it is structured the right way and has the right content to attract visitors and keep them reading.

Key services we provide include:

User Experience design

User experience design is the process of enhancing user satisfaction by improving the usability, ease of use, and pleasure provided in the interaction between the user and the product. User Experience design includes the visual design, the information architecture, structure and labelling, usability and more. We work with clients to develop websites and web applications that focusses on the users journey through the site or application.

User testing

Usability Testing is the process of observing people using websites and web applications – to determine if the product is intuitive and easy to use. We work with clients to test websites and web applications throughout all stages of the development cycle.

Wireframes and prototypes

Website wireframes are schematic mockups used to visually define the website architecture, labeling and functionality. They do not convey design elements, eg, colors, graphics or fonts. Prototypes are used for a similar purpose: a dummy site is built, enabling developers, clients and test users to move around the site in a similar way to the final site. As with wireframes, prototypes are not used to convey design elements. Wireframes and prototypes can be used to:

  • Clearly define site functionality for clients and developers
  • Conduct task-based user testing
  • Depending on the complexity of your intended website, we can create detailed wireframes or a fully operational prototype.

Responsive web design

Responsive Web Design is the process of designing and developing websites and web applications that adapt to any device – from wide screen desktop environments to tablets and mobile phones.

Web design

Web design is the process of creating an overall visual approach that will engage users with your product. We work closely with our clients – producing mockups in stages, taking in your feedback and securing your approval at each step. This means that the final design is something everyone has been involved in throughout the entire process, and there are no surprises!

Front end development

Front-end Development is the process of building websites and web applications using HTML, CSS, JavaScript and related technologies. We focus on a pattern-library approach – defining components so that they can be reused across any website or web application. We use OOCSS and SMACSS principles. We use BEM-based naming conventions. We work in SASS and LESS.

CMS and application development

We work with our clients to help select a Content Management System that suits their exact needs. We can develop websites and web applications using a wide range of content management systems including custom built, open source (WordPress, Drupal) and off-the-shelf products.
