Web Design is often confused with the entire process of making a website. It’s actually only half of the story, although arguably the most important part. The other half is the development of the website, which is turning the flat design mock-ups into a dynamic and responsive website.
A website is the foundation of any online business. All companies need a web design that is user-friendly, looks professional across all electronic devices and delivers measurable results in the form of leads, sales and enquiries.
Our Web Designers can fully customise the look and feel of your website so that your style and branding is unique for your company. As Marketing Specialists, we recommend companies should have a bespoke WordPress theme so that visitors to your website have a memorable visit.
We have designed WordPress websites for small to medium-sized businesses (SMEs) across a wide range of industry sectors. The Web Designers at Cariad Marketing are experienced at designing successful websites which include eCommerce websites and straightforward non-transactional websites.
Any successful project starts off with a detailed and well-structured briefing meeting. This is where we can gauge our client’s expectations and answer any questions they have. It’s also a great way to understand how best to work with each other throughout the project.
It’s vital to do some research before moving forward. There’s valuable knowledge to gain from checking out the competitors’ websites to learn from what they’ve done well and what they haven’t. Plus, we want your website to stand out from the crowd, head and shoulders above the rest.
Our designers collaborate with the developer and the SEO team member assigned to the project to strategically plan the structure and user experience of the website. This is a very important step because it ensures all technical avenues are considered before any design work begins.
We use industry-standard design software and share the designs with you in PDF format for quick and easy viewing. We always start with a home page design and get sign off on that before moving on to the internal pages. We then design all the necessary internal pages so you know exactly how the website will look and work before moving on to the development phase.

Generally speaking, and dependent on the technical specification, your website will be launched within six to eight weeks from receipt of a signed purchase order and payment, providing all necessary content and information have been supplied.
We use three different hosting suppliers and will advise accordingly based on the size of your website, the functionality required and expected traffic.
Yes – most of it. Each website Cariad Marketing creates comes with a CMS (content management system). This means you can edit the text on the pages as often as you like and change things like special offers, photos, prices etc. You will be given full training on the use of the simple CMS (content management system) and this is included in your website package.
