Web development expertise

Web development is the building, creation and maintenance of websites for the internet or for private intranet networks. It’s aspects cover programming, publishing, database and server management.

Front end

A front-end developer takes care of layout that reflects the design. These can include fonts, colours, menus and contact forms using HTML, CSS, JavaScript alongside other technologies such as React.

Back end

The back-end developer engineers what is going on behind the scenes. Essentially, the part of the website the visitor does not see. They make sure everything continues to run smoothly.

User Experience (UX)

User Experience (UX) Design refers to an end users interaction with a digital product and how it made them feel about the process. UX design is less about how something looks but is more concerned with how it actually works. Our digital team understand this, delivering useable and relevant solutions that suit a multitude of business requirements.

Product research

Our UX designers use this as kicking off for any UX project. This essential stage in the process guides our designers to make evidence based decisions rather than making user assumptions.

Creating personas

Another early step in the process is to identify the key users and generate personas that closely represent them. This task helps teams to keep focus on the target demographic and their specific needs.
