Good Web Design Principles + 30 Day Warranty
We take a different approach when it comes to web design.
This helps us deliver ethical and green web design that in return drives better results for your small business.
Accessible Web Development
We develop sites for the purpose of creating intuitive user experiences that all users can enjoy, no matter their background, location or device.
By using this principle we meet W3C guidelines, readability, responsiveness and fairness.
Every piece of content adds to the carbon footprint of a website. We compress images for the web and optimise them to reduce this impact.
We also take the less is more approach to design. From a technical perspective, we find ways to compress content, combine code and suggest eco-friendly solutions.
Experiences that deliver results
With our visual hierarchy principles and a greater understanding of your business, we combine user experience, user interface and psychology to deliver a website that is focused on driving conversions for your business.
We also help set up and track key actions across your website, so you can have a greater understanding of how your website is performing.

Our global team are highly skilled when it comes to web design and development.
Most of our projects are on open content management systems including WordPress.org. We also work on Magento and Squarespace.
Green web design is about reducing your carbon footprint. Many people think that going online is clean and better for the environment. However, much of our online web is powered by dirty fossil fuels such as coal.
If we reduce the size of your content and compress it, not only do we reduce the amount of energy needed to load or store the content, but this can also help to save you costs on disk space limits with your web host.
In addition, compressed and smaller content can prevent slow page loads, which can impact on your conversions.
Yes, all our web design projects are optimised for speed. The amount of time it takes for your website to load is a crucial factor in your conversions such as sales and leads.
We only use lightweight plugins, themes and software to ensure your content loads as fast as it can.
It’s worth noting that as you add more content or plugins to a website, you may need to further optimise it. You can always contact us for a quote to review or optimise your website speed.
Yes, you can choose your own web host if you like.
Yes. We design websites with our Do Good web design principles. That principle includes accessibility, which means you will be able to easily access your content and get full access to make any necessary updates you may need. This access is provided once you have agreed to complete the design project.
For WordPress.org (self-hosted) projects, we often recommend site builders like Elementor Pro, so you can make edits without needing to know complex code. You can also easily add additional features in. We work with a range of other site builders too such as WPBakery Page Builder, Gutenberg and Divi to name a few.
We update existing websites usually by copying them to what we call a staging environment. This helps to reduce any bugs or errors on your existing website. Once the project is complete, we can move the staging site for you to your chosen web host or provider.
Yes. Our Do Good principle of Accessible Web Design means we only build responsive web design projects.
Given that more people are shifting to mobile, it makes little sense for us to recommend to small businesses to have a website that is not device friendly. By using responsive design, you can ensure your website will deliver the best experience for users, helping to drive more conversions for your business.
Yes, you can choose another web developer if you like. Our team can design your new website using design files and your web developer can then take this web design to code it into your website.
We do recommend you get a quote from us though, and bear in mind that we cannot do all of our Do Good Web Design principles alone with a static design.
Yes, we can convert a web design file and code this into a website for you. Please remember to let us know up front that this is what you’d like to do, so we can quote you with the right amount.
