About WP Design
WP Design started in 2008 when the founder, Barry Reynolds recognised a demand for clients who wanted to edit their own website content without the need of coding experience. WordPress at the time was emerging from a blogging platform in version 1 to a sophisticated yet easy to use content management system.
Today over 22% of new websites are built using WordPress, over 10 times more than its nearest competitor. WordPress in continually developing with a worldwide community of developers offering advanced functionality with WordPress plugins.
Our mission is to design, develop and promote our clients website in order to increase sales leads and improve their brand identity through clear, concise and well-structured websites.
We build SEO functionality into all websites from basics such as optimised meta title & descriptions to more advanced techniques such as optimising keyword densities and geo-targeted landing pages.
Many of our clients have seen significant growth in their business due to sales leads generated from their website. We aim to evolve their website and marketing strategy as their business grows in order to stay ahead of their competition.
WP Design is a specialised WordPress agency offering web design, WordPress development and online marketing services.
Projects follow an agile process broken down into 2-week sprints:
Sprint 1 – Planning and design
We start projects with a creative brief which allows clients to express what they are looking to achieve with their website. We discuss design ideas based on this along with our research and experience in order to establish a design style and plan the websites sitemap.
Wireframes are created to allow planning of content and functionality before creating desktop and mobile designs using Photoshop.
Sprint 2 – Design to HTML conversion
Design files are converted to HTML code ready for integration into WordPress. Responsive HTML files are developed using the bootstrap framework to ensure content resizes to mobile and tablet devices.
HTML files are thoroughly tested for errors and alignment issues before they are integrated into WordPress.
Sprint 3 – WordPress development
Development starts with planning and a risk assessment. Potential coding issues such as plugin conflicts are highlighted and solutions found early in the development phase to ensure the project is delivered on time.
Websites elements are tested throughout the development sprint. Daily meetings between our technical director, developer and project manager ensure projects run smoothly.
Sprint 4 – Content, testing and launch
Content such as images, copywriting and video collected throughout the project is added to the website during this sprint. Websites are tested on a wide range of devices and browsers using the latest software to highlight alignment issues.
Websites are launched on clients servers or hosted with WP Design. We offer enterprise-class hosting with maintenance agreements if required.
We follow an approach to project management based on transparent communication, pre-stage planning, detail orientated testing throughout the entire process and regular updates.
We start by creating a comprehensive specification breaking down each area of the website design and build, with predicted hours required for each stage in order to provide you with an accurate quotation and planning.
Typically, web design projects take from 8 to 12 weeks, which includes stages such as research; wireframing; web design; HTML conversion; WordPress development; content creation and quality assurance.
Our approach to project management also allows us to track the progress of projects and remedy issues early to ensure the website is delivered on time and budget.
We create websites from scratch, which prevents code bloat and allows us to create products tailored specifically to our clients’ needs. Websites are coded in HTML5 and WordPress specified standards, which are thoroughly peer tested by our developers.
