Web Design in Hull

Our main service is the design & development of affordable websites for local businesses in the Hull & East Yorkshire region (although we are happy to work with businesses outside this region as well). This includes brand new websites for new businesses, as well as redesigns for established businesses who already have a website.

Web Design Best Practices

We follow all best practices when building websites, including all the following

Professional Design

A successful website must have a professional design so that it gives a good impression of your company and customers feel at ease doing business with you.

High Google Ranking

A successful website must rank well on Google so that potential customers can easily find it. This requires good SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) which we offer.

Clear Structure

A successful website must have a good structure so that customers can easily navigate around your website and find what they are looking for in as little time as possible.

Calls to Action

A successful website must have good calls to action and clear contact information so that visitors make that all important first step of getting in touch with you.

Mobile Friendly

A successful website must work well on a range of devices, including smartphones and tablets. Over 50% of all website usage is from mobile phones.

Consistent Branding

A successful website should use branding (logo, colour scheme, fonts etc) that matches your business’s real world branding to create a consistent and trustworthy identity.

Built on WordPress

All the websites we design use a content management system (CMS) called WordPress. WordPress is the most popular CMS platform and powers 40% of all websites on the web, ranging from big multinational corporations to small local businesses.

The great thing about a CMS like WordPress is that they are easy to keep updated. For any of our clients that prefer to be more hands-on with their website, we can provide them with a login to their website, enabling them to easily change content on pages and add news articles. However, most of our clients prefer to email any changes across to us, which of course we are happy to do.

Another advantage of using WordPress is that Google seems to love WordPress websites and ranks them high on its search engine results. And because we love WordPress so much we are able to design bespoke sites using this software which makes our websites look so good and so different.

Optimised For Search Engines

It is vital that your website ranks well on Google in order for potential customers to find your site. The websites we design for our clients perform very well on all major search engines, and we achieve this by ensuring our websites:

  • Have good content
  • Have good heading tags such as H1, H2, H3 etc

  • Have good meta titles & descriptions

  • Load quickly

  • Use SEO-friendly URLs

  • Have a good structure & navigation

  • Are submitted to Google with an XML Sitemap

Website Design & Navigation

We design bespoke websites that look attractive and incorporate our clients’ brand and colours. It is important that your website looks professional so that visitors to the website view your company as credible and feel at ease either contacting you or purchasing something through your website, especially if it is an E-Commerce website. Having a website that doesn’t look professional can actually be worse than having no website at all because it can put potential customers off your business.

Our websites include the latest design trends such as sticky header/navigation, subtle animations and parallax scrolling background images. We also ensure that our websites have good, logical structures so that visitors can easily navigate around the website.

Responsive Web Design

Every year the number of people accessing websites on their mobile and tablet devices is increasing while the number of people accessing websites on desktops is decreasing. We have now reached a point where websites are viewed more times on mobiles and tablets than they are on desktops. Therefore, it’s really important that websites work well on all devices, including tablets and smartphones.

If your website didn’t work well on mobiles and tablets, visitors would quickly click off your website and take their business to one of your competitors instead. Another reason why it is essential to have a responsive website design is because Google ranks mobile-friendly websites higher than non-mobile-friendly websites.

All the websites we design are fully responsive and work great on all devices.
