Local approach, global reach
While our web development business is based in London our client base has brought us into the global arena with clients operating in the USA (Seattle, New York), France, Sweden, Brazil, Italy, Russia, Japan and China. We have been able to apply our skills to multi-lingual websites including liaising with Portugese speaking associates and enabling content in English, French, Spanish, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese and Russian.
A personal approach to website development
We are an established, quality, UK-based website development company that is available in-person during UK business hours. We are located close to London’s “Silicon Roundabout”, the Shoreditch Triangle and Hoxton Square, which means we are well connected can get to most places in London and the surrounding area. Working closely with our design partners Hughes Design, amongst others, we can offer a complete website development and design service. And if there’s one thing we like more than anything else when developing websites, it’s human contact, being able to discuss our sketches, wireframes, layouts and website designs with our clients.
We’d love to come and meet you to discuss your next website project, or to help you with your existing website. Did you know that nearly half our website development work comes from businesses with an existing website that needs a bit of TLC, re-coding, SEO optimisation or some considered updating?
And for the more technically minded, what we specialise in includes content managed websites (CMS) using WordPress and Joomla, e-commerce website design for online stores using Woocommerce, bespoke database projects using PHP, MySQL, jQuery, CSS3 and HTML5.
All web projects are extensively tested in the most commonly used web browsers including Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Google Chrome and Opera using semantic markup, test-based development and W3C compliant code.
