We make use of WPs content management system and the ability for easy plugin integration to build many of our sites for a range of different clients. From Charities, to Tour Companies, to Authors we have satisfied a range of customer’s projects using WP.

Donation Collection

To the user our donation apps feature a simple user experience, high-quality visuals, and clear descriptions of how your donations are used. While at the backend we create a smooth checkout process and secure payment options.

Our Design Process

Step-by-step Web Design

The process of creating a web system with us always starts with a chat where we define the purpose and goals of the website you are looking to create with us. This involves outlining the functionality and features of the site along with the size and system requirements.

Next we create a site map to outline the structure and organization of the website and determine the types of content you will include on each page.
We also discuss the forms of content, such as text, images, videos, and other media that will be displayed on your site.

Now for the exciting part; what will your website look like? We create a visual design for the website, considering branding, colours, typography, and layout. Furthermore, in this stage, we design the website’s user interface, including navigation menus, headers, and footers.

This includes converting the design into HTML/CSS code to create the basic structure and visual elements. Implement responsive design to ensure the website works well on different devices and screen sizes. Add interactive elements, such as forms, buttons, and sliders, using JavaScript or front-end frameworks (such as bootstrap).

We then determine the back-end technologies and frameworks we will use, such as PHP, C#, or WordPress. Some clients have specific requirements and lean towards a desired framework. Others are happy letting us choose what we feel is best for their business model. We may also implement a content management system (CMS) if necessary to manage and update the website’s content.

Most systems require a back-end database, here we design and set up the database structure to store and retrieve data. We select a database management system, such as MySQL, to develop code to handle data processing, retrieval, and storage. requirements.

Once the site is created the development process has just started next we conduct thorough testing of the website’s functionality, compatibility, and performance. Identify and fix any bugs or issues that arise during testing.
Ensure cross-browser compatibility and responsiveness across different devices.

Now we have a working website we want to make sure we can bring traffic to the site therefore, we optimize the website’s structure, content, and meta tags for search engine optimization (SEO). Implement techniques to improve website performance, such as caching, image optimization, and code minification.

You then choose a hosting provider and set up a web server to host the website. We offer private server hosting to allow maximum control to configure the necessary server settings. Lastly is our final stage of testing the live version of the website to ensure it is functioning correctly on the server.

All that’s left is to maintain your new site. This means regularly updating the website with fresh content and security patches; monitoring website analytics and make improvements based on user feedback and data; and
conducting periodic reviews and optimizations to ensure the website continues to meet your goals and objectives.
