Web Design Cornwall
You name it, we can build it! - What do you want your website to do for you?
Bespoke web app solutions, open source based websites such as WordPress/Magento or a simple one page wonder - We normally start with the question "What do you want your website to do for you?".
Its a well known fact that website can make a huge difference to the perception and understanding of your business by new and existing customers. There are many facets to creating and maintaining a successful website and we can help you achieve this.
Whether you are looking to refresh your current WordPress site, or build a complex and bespoke system to help streamline a part of your business, we can work with you to ensure your website performs at a high level.
Responsive Web Design
Not just another buzz phrase. Having a website design that responds to screen size and adjusts the layout to suit is pretty much the norm these days. We work on a mobile first principle when designing and planning websites, but desktops and laptops still equate to a large percentage of website traffic, so its important to ensure your website design looks great and functions perfectly on all devices.
Why Use Design UNLTD For Your Web Design?
We Are ExperiencedWe have over 10 years experience in web design and development and have worked with many different types of businesses in Cornwall and beyond.
We Are Easy to Work With
Our web design approach is all about clarity and making sure your message is understood. For new or rebuild projects, we usually start by building a wireframe version of your new website, so you can start interacting with it very quickly. You can be involved in the design process as much or as little as you like. Where necessary, we use project management tools that track any amendment requests you have made, this ensures a smooth build process where the client is firmly in the loop.
We Are Creative
Ideas, inspiration and concepts. We build up a brief by asking you questions about who your target audience is and what the unique selling points are. With this information we then research relevant themes or styles to suit. Armed with the research we then start to develop your design and apply it to the wireframe site, this can then be tweaked and developed as necessary as the project progresses to completion.
We Are Reliable
If you urgently need help or a quick change to your website that is outside the scope of the CMS, we are a quick phone call, email or Skype away. If you are using our bespoke CMS, quick amendments or tweaks are done free of charge and most of the time are completed instantly. Our bespoke CMS also includes unlimited technical support, for ever - that's pice of mind!

What Kind Of Website Is Right For Your Business?
Most of the websites we design fall into the one of the following types:
One Page Promotional WebsiteAn online "Shop Window" for your business, perfect for a new business or a trades person. These tend to give general information on a business and a point of contact for potential customers. If linked in with social media account streams these sites can be a very simple and easy way to show off your previous work.
Open Source CMS (Content Management System) WebsiteIf you need more control over the content of your site, then using an open source platform such as WordPress or Joomla makes it possible to build a great website on a limited budget. If you only require a few pages, a blog or there is a well maintained plugin that does exactly what you need, then we would recommend an Open Source CMS.
Bespoke CMS based WebsiteAbove all, its important that a website is able to adapt and grow with your business. Our bespoke websites use our easy to use CMS that is continually developed and can be customised to do what ever your business needs it to do - It's not a 'one size fits all' solution, think of it more as a tailored suit from Savile Row.
Our CMS Is Perfect For The Following Needs:
- Simple and Easy to use
- Categorised content
- Multiple custom user forms
- Portfolios and Case Studies
- Complex business to business pricing and order management
- Bespoke CRM (Customer Relationship Management) requirements
- Managing digitally signed contracts via Adobe EchoSign
- Membership systems
- Integrations with 3rd party API's
Platforms such as Wordpress and Joomla are amazing for getting a quick and generic web presence. For a well designed blog or general marketing site we probably wouldn't recommend anything else. However if you have specific needs from your website or your business is growing fast and you need an agile and secure website that is not reliant on third party developers for essential updates, then we would recommend our bespoke CMS.
Here are a few things to consider if you choose an open source CMS:
Prone To Being Hacked And Spammed
Another factor is that popular Open Source CMS's are often the target for hackers. They do have regular security updates, however this can sometimes break installed plugins if they are not updated too. Having your company's website spammed or hacked can be a very stressful experience - using a bespoke and secure CMS you are less likely to be a target.
Some users find the admin interface over complicated and confusing to work with. Our CMS is tailored to suit your requirements exactly and includes unlimited technical support.
Can Be Inefficient With Large Amounts Of Data
For sites that require highly specialized data handling, a bespoke CMS is probably a better option.
