About Us

Who we are

We are a small company now based above the Big Blue Sky in Wells-next-the-Sea with a primary focus on website design and web programming. Having moved from Stiffkey about 18 months ago, we've been around since 2002 and are now expanding, mostly by client referral.

Our philosophy is to provide a quality product for a realistic price. We agree our costs up front and, except for very large projects, don't invoice our clients until the work is completed and they are totally satisfied and we believe in keeping the client advised throughout the development of the project.

We have clients with a broad mix of skills from the Microsoft stable and from the Open Source stable we can undertake on virtually any internet or intranet based project to deliver functional, well designed and cost effective solutions.

"Web design can be deceptively difficult, as it involves achieving a design that is both usable and pleasing, delivers information and builds brand, is technically sound and visually coherent."

Our Approach

Sometimes clients make it easy for us and have a clear idea of their requirements and we work to a design brief. Generally however clients' requirements are a little more nebulous and we will need to create a brief.

Either way we like to get to know something about our clients business and their requirements and expectations of what their website will deliver and how they want it to work for them. We work with our clients to suggest content and the right framework for their website. Once we've clear idea of how big the site is, how it's constructed and what features are incorporated we can firm up the exact cost.

Then it's down to the client to provide content and photographs. If you need us to we can help with either or put you in touch with a professional photographer or copywriter. In the mean time we'll create a design layout for you to consider and tweak to your liking.

Once the layout is agreed the content and layout are combined to a test site. When the client is finally happy the final version is uploaded to the client website to "go live". We can then, if required, assist with search engine submission and Google pay-per-click.
