Website Development agency, London
Strategic thinking and planning
Digital strategy can be thought of as online marketing. It is the utilisation Search Engine Optimisation (SEO), Online Advertising (Pay Per Click – PPC), Social Network Marketing (Facebook/Twitter/LinkedIn/Pinterest/Instagram etc), Video Channels (Youtube/Vimeo), Mobile platforms and continual statistical analysis and reporting to increase your bottom line. The key thing about digital strategy is that in most cases, return investment can be measured.
Branding consultancy and guidlines
Branding is what people say about you when you’re not in the room, it is your public face and reputation – and it’s vital to make sure you’re giving the right message. We can help you create the ‘wow’ factor, guiding you through the branding process and help you to establish and grow your identity through multiple touch points both online and offline.
Tailoring the experience for all users
The key to good user experience is to meet the exact needs of the customer. It should be totally intuitive and create positive emotion throughout. We aim to creating simple yet elegant interfaces that are a joy to use. True user experience goes far beyond giving customers what they say they want, or providing checklist features. In order to achieve great user experience there must be a seamless merging of multiple disciplines.

Responsive Website Design
Optimal viewing experiences
Responsive Website Design (RWD) is the creation of fluid grid based websites that automatically react to the screen size of the device browser displaying them. This aims to provide easy to view content with varying navigation formats based on device type.
Lightweight, robust and semantic code
We are very fortunate to have a fantastic team of web developers and programmers. We have a very high retention rate, unheard of in our industry, many of the team have been with us for more than a decade – they are our greatest asset, as such we look after them. They continually adapt to the ever expanding array of digital web technologies and harness the ones that provide the greatest benefits to our clients. We are always at the leading edge of web technology but ensure that it is backwards compatible where needed.
Custom Content Management Systems
We have worked with most of the leading Content Management Systems (CMS) over the years, and in some cases continue to do so. However, we found early on that to provide the most robust, scalable and flexible framework for business critical websites, eCommerce and web based applications — we would need to build our own platform. In 2001 we created the Dewsign Content Management System known simply as CMS4 and have continued to developing it ever since. It is a PHP/MySQL framework with an extensive set of modules that are created/tailored/enhanced to adapt to a projects requirements for any type of web, mobile CMS application. It is already configured with leading payment providers e.g. Sagepay and Paypal and and we often integrate it with clients internal software applications.
