Websites

We specialise in creating bespoke, modern and unique websites that are expertly crafted with care by a team of expert developers.

We will review your goals and audience, analyse your content requirements and then provide designs that meet your brand while ensuring compliance with accessiblity, user experience and responsive design best practice.

During development we leverage the power of the 17,000 available Drupal modules to create a consistent, stable and expandable solution - which we will back with an extended warranty period to give you even greater piece of mind.

And during our development process with give you continual access to the areas of your website that are completed, so you can train staff and add content during the project - making the launch of your website quicker and easier for your business.

Our process

We have found that the project process, or methodology, is paramount to guaranteeing successful project outcomes.

Our complete and thorough methodology for the design and development of websites and mobile apps which provides deliverables throughout the process, ensures there are no big surprises or significant wrong turns.

Meet

Vital first step to find out more about you, your vision, goals and needs.

Plan

We will analyse your requirements in more details and identify key stakeholders, priorities and requirements. We'll collaboratively generate a strategic plan for your project that aligns with your vision, goals and most importantly your budget.

UX & Design

With the requirements defined, we will create wireframes and mockups where the visual concepts of the plan will start coming into life.

Develop

We initiate most projects with a distribution meaning that you can get access to the site very early in the development process to start adding content.

We implement features with clear milestones and we use multiple staging environments to deploy these to the site.

Testing

After our own internal testing, we release each sprint with guidelines how to test these yourself

This is one of the most valuable steps which assures both the quality of the work and provides feedback to fine-tune the specifications to your exact requirements

Launch

Upon your approval, we release your site into the wild.

Support

We provide ongoing training, support and maintenance services to provide peace of mind.

We take great care to ensure that our work is performed to a very high standard and in accordance with good commercial practices.

As a result, we provide a three month warranty on new projects once the website components and mobile app implementations are released to the client for testing. If you find and report a defect in the three months after the date of handover for testing we’ll fix it without charge.

Mobile friendly

/ Responsive

All of our sites are developed to be mobile friendly by default.

This is commonly referred to as mobile-first responsive themes. Don't be sold a lemon with terms like mobile compatible sites; all websites are mobile compatible, only responsive sites are designed specifically with multiple devices in mind.

Our standard level of browser compatibility covers the latest stable versions of:

  • Chrome on Windows, OS X, Android and iOS
  • Internet Explorer 9 and above on Windows
  • Firefox on Windows and OS X
  • Safari on OS X and iOS
  • Android browser on Android

If you have more stringent requirements for browser and device compatibility, this can be incorporated into your project. We have recently completed projects that had to work with the legacy systems like Internet Explorer 6.

We are agile

We have found an early and frequent release process benefits our clients, who have the opportunity to review the design and functionality of the site while it is still under construction. It also helps ensure development of the site is proceeding as expected, meets client’s requirements and provides an early opportunity to highlight the need to modify requirements if necessary.

Formally, this is known as using an iterative developmental methodology within which each incremental release is designed around a clear specification. We provide early access to any developmental site where you have the option of “fine-tuning” or even changing specifications. We have a contingency that covers minor changes, however major changes are usually quoted separately and are either incorporated into the current iteration or added as an additional phase.

Where there is less budgetary or time constrains, we occasionally develop with a truly agile approach. Success relies upon having one key client contact that can concurrently coordinate with the lead developer and key stakeholders, and has the authority to make decisions on behalf of other stakeholders.

We often use prototypes when using new APIs or modules; or when we know that we will be pushing the boundaries of existing APIs or modules. Although these are only intended as proof of concept or to scope costings, these prototypes often form the basis of the new site or module.
