We work with our clients to help them discover, define, design and develop web & mobile user experiences that seamlessly align to your brand and add real value to your business, using an agile process that is end user-focused and completely transparent for every client.

Web Design Process

Our approach is about working smarter to create web experiences that are tailor-made to your customer's needs. We know every project is unique, and that is why we use an agile process that is end user-focused and completely transparent for every client to maximise the success of every project we deliver.

Our talented team of web and digital specialists are here to provide technical expertise, strategic support and creative direction where you need it most. Whether it’s website design, development, UX/UI, SEO, social media strategy or digital marketing support, we are here for you every step of the way.

1. Discover

Firstly we have to understand your business, your expectations, your customers and their objectives and goals before we can begin to establish the structure and framework on how we approach things to maximise the success rate.

Once we identify what excites and drive the end-user, we can begin to focus on what we do best, delivering user experiences that are memorable and engaging and planning for your long-term website and brand ambitions.

2. Define

Planning is the key to our website development process. We work together to define who your target audience is and fully understand your customer's ambitions, analyse the data and map out the user flows with you before finding the perfect balance of design, customer experience and technology to achieve the best possible end-user experience.

3. Design

We create wireframes, build editable prototypes and establish the core functionality, navigation and structure to ensure a seamless end-user experience. At this point, we begin to bring your website to life with a splash of brand colours, beautiful imagery and a sprinkling of the creative tone of voice to add that final touch to the overall look & feel of the website.

The UI design phase is the most exciting part of any web project. It’s the part where we align with existing branding guidelines or establish new design styling if it’s a new business. It's the creative icing on the cake and the cherry on top. It's the pretty stuff that makes the user experience memorable and engaging, and we all enjoy seeing it come together.

4. Deliver

All of our websites are developed and built on an easy to use content management system. This means our clients can easily update, copy, upload images, manage contact forms and make changes to the website at any time, effortlessly.

We deliver tailor-made web experiences that customers enjoy with all of our websites built fully-responsive from desktop to mobile. Our design team and development partners are always working to ensure your website stays ahead of the digital curve.

How we work.

We created the Working Smarter model because we love working with clients who value great design and development and enjoy working collaboratively. From startups to large enterprise companies, the end-user is always front of mind. Our goal is to produce the perfect solution that works on all devices and operating systems and is reliable, and is easy to maintain.

We are constantly looking to improve our web process, searching for the perfect balance between design, user experience, development and technologies. Whether you choose to use our experienced development partners or develop in-house, we think you’ll enjoy our creative and collaborative way of working.

    Nigel Daws - Founder

    Nigel is our creative bod, who has spent nearly 30 years creating unique brand experiences for some of the largest brands in the world, so you could say he knows a little bit about this design, digital and brand building lark.

    “I’ve been very fortunate to have collaborated with some very talented creative individuals and ingenious brand managers along the way, who have helped shape my career for the past 30 years and have enabled me to design and build some of the worlds most recognised global brands including Virgin, Manchester United and Crowne Plaza. I have to say it’s always enjoyable working with talented people, using my creative know-how on brands that need that little twist of creative flair to help transform their brand into something extraordinary."

    Jamie Watson - MD

    In my early career, I was client-side with Sainsbury’s and Iceland. Still, I decided to use my knowledge and experience, take the plunge in the creative agency pool, and focus my energy on driving value and giving our clients more bang for their buck.

    “I’m so lucky to work with the talented bunch at Pixel8, an innovative branding, marketing communications and marketing software agency.
