Your website design and development is 'mission-critical' to your success

For most companies no one single element is more important to reaching customers and delivering on strategic goals than a website. Yet for most management teams, no one single element takes so much time, energy and resource to get right. It is a labour of focus and love - sadly often delegated and fragmented by short term tactics rather than long term goals.

Informed by either our Brand discovery workshop or full brandingprocesss we lift the load from your shoulders and lead your website project. You remain as key stakeholder and sign off on direction and decisions at each stage, but enjoy a process that is less mind-bendingly complex. We are accountable for delivering a customer-centric experience that works to deliver on all fronts.

Informed by Brand Discovery workshops, our team of designers, programmers, developers and technical architects deliver an advanced online experience. Breathtaking design, intuitive user experiences, results driven architecture AND unlimited control over your own website content.

Creating customer-centric digital experiences for brands

Whether it’s website creation, website redesign or a complex data driven platform requiring multiple connections to APIs and integration with backend systems, we approach all briefs the same. Firstly we listen, get to understand your business and its challenges. Then we explore deeper, because building a great brand means you need to be customer-centric and focused on delivering what customers want first.  

Our Brand Discovery Workshops and 1-2-1 qualitative interviews are designed to drill into existing and future needs of your customers.  This research unearths insights fundamental to crafting customer facing messages which we align to your business goals. It helps us position and differentiate you strategically so you can play to your unique brand strengths. It enables us to look at every single touchpoint where our design and copy can add to the visitor experience in a useful and engaging way. We think of it as ‘customer-first’ design - mapping out their journey, understanding the different needs at each point and creating a digital response that delivers real measurable value for your business.

Successful projects delivered on time and on budget

Managing all expectations on a web design project is key to everyone feeling satisfied.

Most companies don’t have an endless pot of money to throw at their website project. Then there is the tricky scenario of trying to make your budget stretch for the website you really want to have… but can’t yet quite afford.

Fortunately we are experienced at building websites that deliver the critical elements of what you want and can afford now,  on technologies we can add to, when you are ready. So you won’t find yourself in the awful situation of having to start again because the functionalities and infrastructure work was not planned and considered for future expansion.

This way you get what you want, at the budget you can afford, within a realistic working timeline.  

Embark – our intuitive content management system (CMS)

One of the most infuriating problems shared by new clients is how difficult it's been for them to update their website content. Content management systems historically have contained far more functionality and complexity than the average user needs hence the majority of people in an organisation have to go on training courses to use them. Frustrating and a waste of time.

After 20 years building complex digital solutions we decided it was time to develop what we believe is one of the most  user friendly and robust content management systems on the market. We call it Embark. 

Our embark platform is built using the world’s most popular programming language – Python. This means your business will be using the same cutting edge technologies used by the likes of Google, Disney and Amazon – powerful, stable, secure and infinitely scaleable.

Unlike ‘out of the box’ systems like Wordpress or Drupal that come with a lot of unnecessary features, Embark is created around your needs and requirements and enables us to build you a best in breed website. You get a cleaner, easier to use admin with less clutter and more grunt to handle the technology complexities you would rather not think about. You can also control user access with permissions so only certain people have access to edit and change certain content, this way you can maintain the quality and consistency of your language and messaging.

What’s under the hood?

Lastly, have peace of mind that we only use the best of today's technologies.

The world's most advanced open source database

Heroku is a platform as a service (PaaS) that enables us to build and run applications entirely in the cloud.

Redis is a data structure server. It is open-source, networked, in-memory, and stores keys with optional durability.

Technology agnostic and proficient on most platforms

Your business may already have a platform that it makes sense to stay with. We are technology agnostic and proficient in most platforms on the market such as Wordpress, Expression Engine, Mura, Kentico, and Drupal – but want to do what is right by you for both the short term and long term.

If you have an existing website, feel assured we can take over and work with the framework used to build it. Our development team can happily code in using  ASP.NET, Angular JS, Ruby on Rails, Django and Code Igniter to name a few.

Let’s talk
