Website Design and Development
Fusing creativity with the latest design techniques to push boundaries in website development.
A great website design is an essential part of any business branding. It's an opportunity for you to engage with your potential customers without even seeing them, it's your shop window to show visitors what services or products you provide.
Whether you are looking for a responsive brochure website, a complex web based application or an ecommerce shop, the process starts with a chat and maybe a coffee (or tea if you prefer). In order to create a true extension of your brand it is vital that there are no preconceptions or presumptions from both parties. So, as well as discussing the technical questions and end goals for your new website, we want to know more about your business', its values and aspirations as well as who your customers will be. Only when we know the true context of your brand we will then be able to suggest the right direction for your website development to enable you to grow now and in the future.
What happens next?
With a better understanding of what makes your business tick, we'll produce a written proposal for your website. This is much more than a simple brief; this document will outline all what was discussed at our meeting and our thoughts on the best route forward for the various sections and functions of the site combined with a breakdown of the specifics concerning both content and infastructure. We'll also provide you with a detailed explanation of our design, build and testing process, before we take the next step forward.
Pixelsource is the type of service supplier every successful business needs, responsive, effective and above all transparent; we at CWP look forward to a continued relationship.

The drawing board
With a proposal agreed we'll hit the drawing board so to speak. Your involvement with the creative process is imperative and with regular collaboration and discussions we will explore new and exciting directions in both design, website layout/infastructure and user experience to develop an enduring solution for your business. During the design stage you will be given access (through a temp live url) to a visual prototype of the site enabling you to interact with the concept in your own time. With this clever and useful tool you will have a clear indication on how the live site will look and have a first-hand experience of the users journey while they use your website. Overall our aim is to provide you with all the tools and expertise you need to make informed and considered decisions regarding the layout and design of your website project and any changes that maybe required before the site goes live.
Websites that are built to last
We take a device agnostic approach to responsive website development - don't worry it's not complicated even though it sounds as though it is? In a nutshell it just means we build our websites to look great and operate at the same high standard no matter what screen size or device you are using. Rather than targeting specific devices or a rigid number of breakpoints or sizes' for all of our web projects, the responsive build process is unique for each design.
Once the site is fully tested, we will give you a full tutorial on how to make full use of the CMS (Content Management System or Admin Area) we provide you, and walk you through the process of adding and updating the content throughout the site. We will even supply you with a brief guide on how to make the most of your content, taking tone of voice and SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) into consideration. Or if you prefer you can hand over your content writing and image provision to Pixelsource to get the most from your content and site.
Once you're totally happy with the content and how the website is functioning in our live test area, we will work with you to launch the site in the most effective way possible - after all, timing is everything!
After your website is launched?
Launching your new site (making it live) is just the first step in a long journey with a lot more fun and games to come. It's important that as with anything that is new, your website is looked after and cared for on a regular basis and we are always on hand to be part of that discussion should you need us.
That's why all of our builds come with a complimentary six month website review giving you a detailed breakdown of all the relevant facts and figures (translated into plain English), together with our suggestions for how each metric could be improved upon moving forwards.
Alongside our core web development and design services, we also offer a range of other products including design and production of web applications, responsive email newsletter templates, online advertising and SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) strategy. This range of expertise is at your disposal to create powerful online marketing campaigns.
