As fully-fledged web designers and developers, we were obviously going to pull out all the stops to make our own website as user-friendly, attractive and functional as possible for all users – that’s why we’ve set about designing and implementing ourselves! Our site needed to convey exactly what we do as a web design Cheshire firm – and it also needed to show off our skills, with a slick layout and design, as well as optimised copy, some unique features and a consistent theme and branding.
We already had our logo and branding in place, so we set about designing a website that would complement it perfectly. Built on WordPress, the site is easy to manage on a day-to-day basis, with a blog section that keeps our visitors updated as well as helping to establish our thought leadership in the world of web design.
As part of the web design, we also wanted to create a section where visitors could check out our recent projects – the section you’re reading now, in fact! To create this ‘Projects’ section, we had to create a brand new custom post type with a range of parameters and criteria that set it apart from a regular blog post or page. All posts that we publish, either on our Blog or in our Projects section, have also been configured to auto-post to social media, keeping our followers and fans on all platforms up-to-date with our most recent activity.
The site was designed using Bootstrap, a front-end framework packed with tools which aid the creation of beautiful, simple websites. We think we’ve accomplished our original goal in creating a functional, aesthetically pleasing website that is right on-brand – and we believe we’ve showcased our web design Cheshire and development skills perfectly!
