Affordable Web Design

We favour building sites that are clean and simple in design and that get the message across with the minimum of fuss. A modern website should be quick to load and adhere to the latest web standards for compatibility and accessibility and feature a clear and intuitive navigation structure.

We think a website needs to fulfil these basic criteria:

  • Be easy to use and navigate
  • Deliver the information that the visitor is looking for
  • Be consistent with existing brand identity
  • Work across different browser software and devices such as tablets and phones

Initial Steps

We will setup an initial consultation with you to establish requirements in four key areas:

  • Purpose – why do you want a website
  • Audience – who is your main target market
  • Content – What will your site offer, both now and in the future
  • Style - what style or tone do you want to go for? To a certain extent this will be led by the above, but it needs to be personal to you as well

It is also useful at this stage for us to study your existing branding and any literature in order to create a consistent style for the new site. Once we know what the site needs to achieve, we will produce one or two custom page designs for your approval. At this point we can give you a good idea of total cost and timescales.

Our Prices

The exact cost of building your new website will depend on the content and style of the site. Here are the two most popular:

Hosting and domain names are charged separately as we find many customers already have one or both. This is not expensive - see below for more details. Other optional add-ons might include eCommerce if you want to have an online shop to sell products, newsletter signups and other custom functions (e.g. an appointment booking system). If you can think of it, we can probably code it for you!
