The Creative Collective have produced hundreds of website designs for our clients, from simple one page website designs to elaborate and complex ecommerce website designs, for a wide range of industries.

We are expert on WordPress websites, however we are well equipped to provide website design and development services on a wide range of other website platforms including Drupal, SquareSpace, Shopify, Joomla and more!

We also offer hosting and domain name services as well as support and maintenance. Contact us to find out how we can assist you with a new website or website revamp.

These include our ever popular website in a day, where working in person (where geography permits) or on Skype or other online mechanism, alongside a project manager, lead web developer and support web developer, we can create you a website in just ONE DAY.

We can also approach websites in a more traditional way, by conducting a creative brief, and then assisting you to prepare a scope of works. Some clients even engage us to workshop with them and help them devise a website strategy, and prepare a formal scope of works/request for quote. In some cases we will then also apply for their RFQ.

Fast, 100% Responsive and SEO friendly

We pay particular attention to building fast sites 100% responsive across devices and ensure that it’s SEO friendly and ready to be optimised.

Our web design & development process

We generally approach our website design & developments in a few key phases:

  1. Website brief — We meet with the decision makers of your business to discuss the requirements for your website in more detail i.e. vision, strategies, goals and objectives; target market; required look and feel; calls to action, review sites you like and rough out a navigation/site map. There is no need to bring anything to this session. We will extract all the information we require from you, and provide you with a handy checklist of items to supply us with via email after the session.
  2. The Design -We will either send you a list of themes to choose from prior to the build day, or if we are preparing a custom design, we will supply you with some design concepts to approve.
  3. The Build — We will schedule full ‘days’ to work on the website and depending on the size, scope and duration, ideally when key decision makers are available to provide feedback online as we build your website real time. This saves on lots of back and forth! It’s like watching an experienced chef whip up a gourmet meal in the kitchen while you salivate. The process of building a website will include styling the theme to suit your branding, creating the menu structure as agreed on in your site map during the brief, uploading your supplied content, images and videos, and adding in any other functionality agreed on in the brief i.e. contact forms, ecommerce functionality, integration with Mailchimp or other 3rd party systems etc.
  4. Optimising The Site — After your build is complete, we will complete a variety of items as outlined on your estimate including ensuring Google Analytics & Google Webmaster Tools is correctly set up on your site, submitting the site map to Google so it indexes quickly and will be updated as you make updates to the site, and conducting some keyword research and optimising the website pages.
  5. Go Live — Immediately prior to going live we will make sure the site is good to go with full testing and quality checks on different browsers to ensure compliance and functionality. We will also make the site live on our hosting server, or on your preferred host.
  6. Training & Handover — We will arrange a one-on-one training and handover session to show yo the ropes of your new website! Some people prefer to do this before the site goes live, others prefer it after. The choice is up to you!

How long does it take?

Whilst we can provide rough guidelines on how long a site will take to build based on previous experience, the client will generally dictate the speed at which a website is built, depending on how long they take to provide approvals for different stages of the development, and also how long the content takes to collate and supply (which the client generally sources and writes, unless we are contracted otherwise). The duration of any given website design and development project will also depend on the size of the project i.e. its level of customisation and complexity, and also our current production schedule. But be assured that if you have a deadline to make, we can make it happen!
