Web Design Bristol Made Easy

The website design process:

All our websites are mobile-friendly and include a user-friendly CMS (content management system) so you are able to easily update your website.

Goal Setting

It all starts with listening to you. We will meet with you to learn about your business, brand, audience and customer base and define your requirements and objectives.


We put together a plan for your site, set a strategy and timeline. We define which features the site will need to fulfill your goals & create a sitemap so it all connects.

Content Creation

At the heart of every website lies its content. The copy should be focused, informative and engage your readers – we can offer copywriting services to help if required.

Visual Design

Complex or large sites require wireframes, which provide a guide for defining content hierarchy on the pages. The next step is to create pixel perfect visuals.

Website Development

Once you are happy with the visual presentation, the development can start, in other words, coding the site and adding the functionalities – form, shopping cart etc.

Quality Control & Launch

We test your website across a wide range of devices being used in the market and customer base. Your new website is now ready to go live!

I don’t live in Bristol / the South West: can I use your services?
Yes. By using Zoom, Microsoft Teams, email and the telephone, we can communicate effectively with clients in any location.

How much does a new website cost?
Websites are quoted as a fixed fee, based on the size of the website as well as the complexity and functionality. Website design quotes are always given before we start any work, and costs are clearly documented.

If I ask for a web design quote, what happens next?
Before we start working together, we will have an initial chat on the phone or via Zoom to learn about your business and target audience, find out your exact requirements and goals. We will analyse your requirements, make recommendations to achieve your objectives and provide you with a written quotation. We will then put together a plan for your site, set a strategy and timeline.

Can you help me write content for the website?
Yes, we offer copywriting services.

Can you help me source photos for my website?
Yes, we will help you source quality stock photos from sites such as Adobe Stock and Shutterstock. We also have photographers available to produce custom photography for your website.

What is the typical time frame for creating a website?
Each project is different, so the time frame depends on the functionality, design and size of the website. A brochure site can be up and running in 2 to 4 weeks. Large business websites (50+ pages) or complex projects take longer. During our initial chat with you, we will advise you of how long the process will take for your project and we will confirm this in our written quotation.

Will I be able to update the web site myself when it’s finished?
Yes. The ability to update your website as and when is essential, not only in order to keep it up to date, but also to engage and retain your web audience. All our websites include a content management system (CMS) so you can update your content easily. We will show you how to update your website. We also provide a comprehensive guide accessible from the CMS dashboard.
