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

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!

FAQ: click here

1. I already have a site, but I want a new design. Can you help?
Yes, we can certainly redesign your website. Call us on 01275 544 376 for a free no obligation chat. If you prefer, you can email us at [email protected] or use our enquiry form.

2. 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.

3. I don’t live in Bristol: can I use your services?
Yes. By using the Internet, email and the telephone, we can communicate effectively with clients in any location.

4. Do you outsource your projects or send work overseas?
No, we are Bristol based web designers and everything we do is 100% in-house in Bristol so we have full control.

5. How long does it take to complete 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.

6. Do you offer web hosting?
No, we don’t. Many web design companies who ‘offer’ web hosting are re-sellers who use the services of a dedicated web hosting company. It is also possible that a design company may not have the technical expertise needed to ensure total reliability. We believe that our clients should have complete control over their website, which means a separate web hosting contract between the client and the web hosting company. We are always happy to help you to determine which web hosting company and which web hosting package is the best for your requirements.

7. Which web host do you recommend?
Web hosting is the process of renting some web space in order to publish your website online. Web hosting companies offer various web hosting packages. We will help you to determine which one is the best for your requirements. The cost of a quality hosting account for a brochure website is usually between £12 and £20 per month. We currently recommend Siteground UK as they are UK based and their support is excellent.

8. Can I update my website myself?
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.

9. What platform do you build your websites on?
Our websites are developed using WordPress, Drupal and our own full modular Content Management System.

10. Do you offer ongoing maintenance?
Yes. We provide full website maintenance packages which include updating your website with all the latest security patches to keep your data safe.
