The essentials

Website accessibility

The web is for everyone. Considering accessibility when designing your website enables everyone, no matter the disability, to interact with and contribute to the web. We design for the diverse set of users that will interact with your product, this includes people who are blind, colour-blind, deaf or have mobility issues. For the young and the old. We embrace accessibility guidelines (WCAG) as a set of design constraints and use them to push the limits of our creativity.

Responsive design always

74% of web traffic originates from devices other than traditional computers. Therefore, when we embark on the design process for your website or digital product, our primary consideration is the user journey. We put considerable emphasis on ensuring that the user experience is optimised, regardless of the type of device or the dimensions of the screen on which the website or digital product is being accessed.

Discovery workshops

We believe in spending time to ensure we are providing the right solution to the right problems. At the beginning of a project we sit down together and surface high level functionality requirements, project expectations, deliverables and timelines. This enables us to plan a roadmap for your project, recommend the best tech-stack and estimate costs.

Managing projects

Project approach

Our project approach for the new website begins with thorough planning, UX workshops, and engagements to gain a deep understanding of user needs aligned with business objectives. This initial investment in research minimises costly revisions later on. 

Moving into the collaborative design phase, we utilise the insights gathered to enhance efficiency. The development phase includes regular work-in-progress meetings, ensuring effective communication and timely adjustments. By finalising ongoing hosting and support during development, we facilitate a seamless transition. 

Quality Assurance and User Acceptance Testing phases ensure high standards and prompt issue identification. Our approach allows for planning, deployment, and multiple rounds of testing, resulting in the successful delivery of the new website within the specified timeline and budget. Ongoing support ensures continuous improvement and maintenance.


Project Management

As part of our Agile methodology, we work in sprints. A sprint is a two week period during which deliverables are defined to achieve success in your project. What you can expect within each Sprint:

  • Sprint Planning Meeting every two weeks
    • The goal of this meeting is to develop realistic Sprint backlog and define the highest priority tasks which need to be done during the length of each Sprint:
  • Regular Client / Butterfly “Work in Progress” (WIP) meeting
    • Status update on current project and roadblocks preventing completion
    • Rundown of key dates and upcoming deadlines
  • Review of effort
    • Sprint reviews and retrospectives
    • Financial overview
