Web development

All the pieces, large and small, that make up a good web presence. Made with love. (And coffee.)

We offer clients an end-to-end managed solution on the technical side; from website to web server. We maintain an optimised WordPress hosting service available to our clients. This way, we can guarantee the performance, security and stability of what we build.

Our websites are responsive, built with the latest well-supported technology and work on all modern devices. We’re also careful with our choice of platform. If we wouldn’t use one ourselves, we wouldn’t recommend it to a client.

Platforms

We’ve decided on WordPress as our primary choice of platform. It’s easy to use, backed by a great company (Automattic) and very extensible under the hood. Wielded right, it can produce a fast and secure website, and we’ve yet to find something it cannot do.

Short of ecommerce, perhaps, where we think it’s better to choose a large provider, like Shopify or Bigcommerce which offer easy solutions to the delicate process of selling products online. Their reputations and responsibility allow for easy integration with social media platforms, where a lot of people do their online purchasing. They’re easily combined with a standard website elsewhere.

Integration

We APIs. Since a website is no longer a single entity, adrift on its own, but rather the centre of a web of services; like social media, payment handling and email campaign management, when we build a website, we integrate it with whatever is necessary, from MailChimp to Stripe.

Good, clean code

Code

Any well-cared for website is continuously evolving. They need plenty of TLC; changes, fixes and improvements, all of which is much easier to do if it was built from the ground up to be extensible and maintainable.

To this end, we make liberal use of SASS and our WordPress theme anatomy has been designed to allow extension and to be as flexible as possible.

Extensive support

Support

For clients on our WordPress hosting, we guarantee the stability, security and performance of your website, including compatibility with future WordPress core updates and plugins.

If you need our hand with the odd change or tweak going forwards, we’ve got on-going packages for that, too.
