Bespoke Web Design Service

Each project starts as a blank canvas, we never sell off-the-shelf design. Each website is hand-crafted to match the objectives of your business. To get there, we produce sketches, wireframes and mockups. If your project requires it, we’ll develop customer profiles and user journeys to help guide visitors to where you need them to go. The result is a digital masterpiece which delivers results and impresses your clients.

Content Managed

Nearly all of the websites we deliver use a content management system (CMS) such as Drupal or WordPress which give you, the business owner, control over most aspects of the website. This can include editing pages, uploading and managing media and document, curating and selling products with an eCommerce system or simply writing a blog. The possibilities are endless.

Responsive Web Design

Responsive web design (RWD) is a design concept to suit all devices. It’s an approach to web design which aims at providing the best viewing experience for your customers, on any device.

By designing responsively your website we’ll adapt and respond by rearranging your content to best fit, giving your customers the best experience, wether on a desktop computer, tablet or smartphone.

Mobile First

Responsive design is important to search engines too. Google now recognises if your site is mobile friendly and will highlight that to potential visitors in search results.

At Lightflows we use a mobile first approach to responsive design and we deliver the best experience on the smallest devices, progressively enhancing the user experience as the device screen gets larger.

User Experience / UX

Deliver a great user experience to your online customers and you’ll deliver great results for your business.

At Lightflows we look at things differently and from many angles, exploring what your customers and visitors want, do, find and interact with on your website. This analysis of the business processes in play on your website inform all aspects of the design and delivery and everything is considered: the colour of a button, the way a form looks, the messages in your calls-to-actions, all contribute to how your customers will interact with your site.

User journeys

User journeys are fundamental to understanding how your customer will navigate, find and interact with your website.
By planning user journeys and designing your site in a way which delivers to your audience, we can increase the value your online business delivers.

Web Hosting

We’ve a range of hosting solutions to suit businesses of all sizes. From entry level plans to large, enterprise scale deployments with load balancers, we’re sure to have the hosting architecture which suits you.

Content Delivery

A CDN or Content Delivery Network will make your website run faster by offloading the serving of content, such as images and other media, to another service. This lets your webserver handle the webpages whilst the CDN gets on with the other stuff. If your site has very specific needs such as video hosting, we can also recommend and setup services for these too.

Performance Tuning

You have just milliseconds to engage with your customers. We take website performance seriously and have a range of tools and technologies for improving website performance. This can include caching technologies such as Redis, Memcache and Varnish. We also employ server side monitoring tools such as NewRelic to hunt down and fix bottlenecks or resource issues.

Uptime Monitoring

Online means what it says and we recommend uptime monitoring with all hosting packages to quickly alert our technical team if a site becomes unavailable.

Support and Maintenance

We’ve got your back. After your site has gone live, we offer a variety of technical support packages and extra training to help you get the best out of your site.

We’re on hand either by telephone or via the ticketing system to help with your ongoing needs. The maintenance component of our support packages ensure that your site is always kept up to date and secure.
