Web Design Leeds
Even though we’re a web design agency based in Leeds, we work with clients in the UK, Europe and US. Because of this, we have clients from a whole range of different industries; recruitment, crypto, finance, automotive, property and more. You can see the work we’ve done for these types of clients on our projects page.
What does a digital agency do?
A digital agency typically offers professional services relating to the design, development or promotion of websites, apps, social media and other digital based mediums.
As a digital agency, we have over a decade of experience in building websites and generating leads so everyone else understands why you are exactly what they're looking for. Unlike some digital agencies, we stick to what we know and don’t offer every service; our web design team in Leeds are specialised in website design, eCommerce, Shopify, SEO and PPC.
What types of websites do we build?
As a Leeds digital agency, we're not fixed on using a single platform or technology, we recommend the best content management system depending on your requirements and the best technology to build it with. The majority of our websites are built using WordPress due to its flexibility, ease of use and because it's so popular, most of our clients already have experience in using it. As well as WordPress, we build a lot of websites using the Jamstack approach. Jamstack is the modern way to build websites and dramatically improves performance and security. We usually use Prismic as the content management system but a CMS like WordPress can be used as well.
We also build websites using Shopify, WooCommerce, Craft and Laravel.
How you build a website?
At the beginning of every website we build, our web design team take time to map out the project, starting with architecture, wireframes and user flow. Our web designers, using Figma and other design tools, will then gradually progress with the prototype to create a final design to be handed over to our web developers once approved by the client.
Once approved, our web development team in Leeds start creating the new website. Depending on the scope, level of complexity and technology, this can take a few weeks or months.
When the website is finished by our developers, it’s then put into a review and quality assurance stage. Here, our QA team “stress test” the website to make sure there are no bugs, leaks or issues with it. The web development team then resolve any of these before the website is handed over to the client for a further round of testing and approval prior to launch.
What makes a successful website?
As Dieter Rams once said, “good design makes a product understandable”. Good design is very important in building a successful website, otherwise your users won’t be able to understand your business or find what they’re looking for! Having said that, design isn’t the only important aspect of building a successful website.
Having a strong brand identity is another important aspect of a successful website. Strong branding makes you memorable and helps build trust, thus increasing customer loyalty and ultimately, sales.
If you want to have an online presence, you’ll need a great SEO strategy. The SEO strategy will enable the business to reach their target audience and turn visitors into customers. As both on-site and off-site SEO are strategised from the outset, the website will have a high quality code-base and structure that search engines approve of.
Arguably the most important part of a successful website is having a website that is not only well designed, but well built. Prior to any development, our web design team maps out the user journey by creating interactive prototypes designed around conversion optimisation.
Web Developers Leeds
When the design and development of a website is complete, the website is then handed over to the client for review and to add their content, we often add content in if a content strategy has also been created.
Once content and review is all signed off, the website can be made live! This is when our crack SEO team get to work on the visibility of the website based on recommendations found in an SEO audit and strategy that would have been done prior to the website going live.
When live, our clients elect us to maintain and support their website going forward, so they can continue to succeed online.
