What's a customer's foremost impression of your brand?

What if we told you that web design agencies overcharge?We own a group of leading brands ourselves and have certainly received our fair share of prospective reach-outs from web design agencies that each advertise what is fundamentally an underwhelming proposition; this is why we began. At no point have we ever wanted a new website to the one we already had, but equally, nor did we ever tell anyone that we actually web-coded and designed everything in-house; this is between you and us.Elevating your brand in the online space doesn't have to equate to high web design fees. What it does need, in addition to a design studio understanding how to make a cost-effective website, is one that has personal and real-time experience of how to grow brands online, with the application of such experience often the disparity between an online space that might look nice versus one that looks nice yet also performs.Whether you've e-commercial needs or simply require a representative brand frontage, your online space is your customers' FOREMOST impression of your brand.

Brands Amongst Noise


You've small design requirements?

Not all branding projects require an overhaul, and the likes of Fiverr, Upwork, PeoplePerHour or Freelancer were launched to offer clients the ability to source freelancers for the task. You might deem such platforms and interactions to be suitable if you're just looking for the likes of a new logo, some text translation, perhaps a new marketing email layout template. You get the jist.But, take one look at these platforms' offerings and you'd be forgiven for maybe thinking hiring a freelancer from here isn't the right route for you. We understand, there's as much noise amongst the options of who to work with as there is competitor noise within your market.


...Nope, we require something more

Next we come to desiring a whole brand relaunch, perhaps a head-to-toe brand refresh with a portfolio of new media or an entirely modernised website to provide your customers with a better online experience within your online space, as well as everything in between.Well, you certainly could take up one of those underwhelming proposition reach-outs that have been landing in your inbox of late, or maybe a quick browse on a search engine might find you a reputable national company....Ah, after their free consultation, you've quickly come to learn that nothing else beyond this comes without a hefty pricetag. We know.

    #1 was Snowdevil ~ oh, and they later invented Shopify too. Smart


    Batch 01, 02, 03 +

    We believe that website design projects require attentiveness and dedication as much as knowledge and skill. Why do we say this? Too often do we see websites that we could ballpark guess the budget and client requirements, but then notice that a banner isn't quite right, there's a button sitting there that's disproportionate to the other content, maybe there's a font size that just isn't drawing proper attention to itself, and so on. Call us particular, but when it comes to website design, we believe that diligence and consistency is key, and that an efficient website only comes to fruition when the web designers are really engaged in the project.By this, we only work with a small number of clients at any one time; no overstretching, no underdelivering. We call this small batch working.

    Consistent Website Design
    Holistic Web Design Approach


    Shopify, Squarespace, Bigcommerce...

    ...Magento, WooCommerce, Wix, Prestashop - we have our favourites but work with and know them all. Whether you're looking to replace or finetune your website, if its an advanced e-commerce webshop or just a simple landing page, any size of project or detail is one we'll be glad to work through with you.Pricing & Batch 04 Status:Generally web designers base their pricing on the amount of time to plan, design and build the website, and therefore it is based on an hourly rate. Depending on the complexity of the problem, design and solution, you may expect an hourly rate of around £25-35.00 with us (~ typical agency fees vary from £20-75.00 per hour). We also offer online advertising management, from social media, search engine and affiliate, on a monthly fee structure.As part of our Batch 04, we are currently open to a select number of new clients.

    With Google processing 8.5 billion searches each and every day [A], even without considering Bing, Yahoo and others, we can all agree this is a rather large number - larger than the world's total population in fact. Of these, 6.375 billion of the searches see the user remain on page 1, not even considering page 2 and beyond [B], and; just 2.55 billion result in clicking on a paid placement [C].If 8.5 billion represents 90%, just 945 million of online experiences are direct visits to websites [D].Sure, 945 million is a large number and no doubt your online space and presence serves you in your local market just fine, and granted, 2.55 billion are accessible by paying your hard earned, but 6.375 billion, this should be your FOREMOST positioning.
