Web design by Dolia
Our award-winning website design and development services are at the heart of our business. We are truly passionate about creating beautiful, engaging websites that not only look great, but work hard towards our client’s overall digital marketing objectives.
A good website is arguably the most important digital marketing asset that a business can have, as it forms the backbone to all digital marketing activities and acts as a ‘shop window’ into a business.
We have been developing websites since 2009 and have built up some brilliant experience and knowledge along the way. We have seen the world of website design change a lot over the years and are always looking to push our creativity and technical skills to the next level.
Our preferred website CMS
Our website developers use the WordPress content management system (CMS) to power all of the websites we create and deliver for our clients.
WordPress is the world’s most popular website builder, trusted by millions of brands and businesses across the globe.
But, we don’t just use WordPress ‘out of the box’ – we have our own custom WordPress Framework that we have fine-tuned for optimal website performance and site customisation.
With WordPress CMS, your website will be:
- Fast, secure and reliable
- Feature-rich, with a huge range of plugins and tools available
- Easy to update and manage in-house (we make this extra-easy for you!)
- Free to update (no expensive upgrade costs)
- Flexible and scalable as your business grows

Our website design process
A lot goes into creating a new website, so it’s critical to have a project plan which works well for everyone. We have a tried and tested process which ensures a smooth workflow throughout your project.
Project Discovery Meeting
This is the very first stage of the project and it actually happens before we put forward our proposal to you. In this meeting, we discuss your requirements, put forward ideas and create a draft web structure.
The first (and fun!) step of the design and development phase of the project is to get an understanding of what your new website needs to look like. This includes UX/UI considerations, web structure sign-off and assets (images/videos/graphics).
Site Design Presentation
We always like to present our work to you in person. That way, we can explain our thought process and get instant feedback. We present a ‘fully working’ website, not just flat designs, so that you can have a true experience of how the website is going to look and function.
Full Site Design & Development
Once the site design has been signed off, we complete the rest of the website and build all of the pages, features and functionalities to your spec.
We’re ready for content! This is the stage of the project where we add in your content, including text, imagery and associated assets. The site then comes to life as we get it ready for a full review.
Once everything is in place and the website is at an ‘almost done’ stage, we invite further feedback to ensure everything is in place and looks great.
The final changes, additions or tweaks to the website are carried out. We make sure everything is polished and ready to go.
Testing & Tuning
An important step! We make sure your website is up to scratch and working perfectly across all browsers, devices and platforms.
Put the champagne on ice… we’re ready to go live! We launch your website… but, not before carrying out some critical tasks to ensure a smooth transition from your old site to the new.
Post-Live Sign-Off Tasks
This is where we do all the techy 'behind the scenes’ bits so that your new website is all set and linked up with all your digital marketing platforms.
With all our websites, we provide training so that our clients can take complete control of their digital content.
Get expert website training directly from the website development team so that you can confidently update and manage your website in-house.
Whether it’s an online 1-1 training session or an in-person training session delivered to a team of people, you’ll get training specific to your website and it’s features.
After a website training session, you’ll be able to:
- Update page content
- Add images and videos
- Add new website pages
- Create and publish blog posts
- Add and manage products
