Why Choose Footprint?
We understand that finding the right web design company for you is a daunting task. There are thousands of web design companies all offering their services and trying to reel you in with different ‘baited hooks’?
Most web design companies fall into one of two categories. Arty or techie, this means that the sites they create often look either really arty or are really techie. What sets us apart is we listen and understand the needs of our clients and create your site to your specific needs. As we were once a 'start up business' ourselves, we believe we are in the ideal position to provide reliable advice for which services will be most beneficial to you and your company. Our team possess all the skills needed to ensure that your site looks great and will function well (so both arty and techie). Most important of all though, we understand that whether the purpose of your site is to generate new business, sell a product or showcase your services, it has a job to perform. Because of this all of our websites are created to be easy to navigate, well optimised and with a bespoke design that will generate you business from attracting the right visitors.
Many aspects of web design are ongoing processes and we approach all of our work with long term aims in mind with the hope of establishing strong and lasting relationships with all of our clients.

Web Design Process
Many times we are asked the question ‘so how does this work?’ or ‘what do we do next in order to get a web site built?’ and it is our job to ensure that the entire process is as transparent as possible. From the first stage until the last, we will talk you through each stage of the site build and always get your approval on the designs we create and pages we make, this will ensure that you have no nasty surprises waiting for you at the end.
Over the years we have seen the web evolve and have noticed the constant change in client’s expectations. We don’t believe in producing ‘paint by numbers’ websites and as such all of our designs are bespoke which are developed to deliver solutions which specifically meet the needs of each individual client.
Once the web design process is complete and your website is ready to be published online, it is of the utmost importance that your potential customers can find it! Regardless of how good your website looks, a website that is not visible to its target audience is not doing its job properly. Our search engine optimisation packages ensure that all our of our designs incorporate the basic elements of online marketing and include all of the relevant information needed to ensure that search engines such as Google, can find your website.
