Web Development

Web development is the process of taking a website design and programming this to display properly in a browser. This involves programming the HTML and CSS in-line with web standards and then integrating this code into a content management system (CMS). Custom web development is then undertaken to fill any of the functionality gaps before thorough testing is carried out across the website. Learn more about our web development methodology here.

Our approach to web development

Website development requires a very different set of skills to web design. In web development the focus is on functionality and usability. With web development-only agencies this can result in a lack of focus on the other side of websites – the marketing and aesthetic. Our approach to web development is to bring together the web design aspects of website creation and integrate these with the latest technologies and frameworks that we have at our disposal. This web development process ensures your website is functional, usable, achieves your marketing goals and looks great!
