Our Web Design Process
We hear so often from disgruntled businesses when they first call us that their existing website is letting them down. It ranges from poor search engine results, right through to the website not delivering the core values and branding of the business. So how does this happen? From our experience, it’s down to the web designers not taking the time to do their research into the target audience the website is trying to reach. It’s actually pretty simple, but gets overlooked on so many occasions.
For us, the success of any project stems directly from the initial meeting, the brief provided and our own internal research. From our office in Milton Keynes, westfourstreet firmly believe that by taking the time to understand a business and it’s brand, our clients will reap the rewards. That’s always the very first item in our design process. So before we even fire up Photoshop to begin designing a site, we have a clear vision that is shared with our client on what the website should be achieving in the short term and long term.
After the research phase, that’s when we get creative! We 100% believe that content is king. You should never have to compromise on your online content in order to achieve a beautiful looking website. In fact, we believe that the two should sit nicely along side each other. What we deliver to our clients during the design phase are wireframes and concepts on the site structure and how the content is presented. From that point we then focus on the detail which makes the difference between a standard website, to a website that stands out both visually as well as have the impact to entice users further in.
If the UX (User Experience) is of high quality and the UI (User Interface) is intuitive to the user, then you’re already half way home. An essential part of our design process is to ensure that every website is optimised for speed. Once we have delivered the design concepts to a client and these have been approved, we then move swiftly on to getting the website built according to the designs that we have provided and which were signed off and approved. So if you’re a business looking for web design in Milton Keynes, or your own local web design agency is letting you down, why not give us a call or contact us here.

Responsive Website Design
According to Google, more searches now take place on mobile devices than on desktops. So the importance of having a mobile friendly website is now greater than ever.
A responsive, mobile friendly website allows your users to experience your website regardless of what device they’re using. A responsive website will automatically reformat itself so that the best possible user experience is achieved – and a good user experience equals better conversion rates for your website.
We have been designing for the web for over ten years and we love nothing more than getting our hands dirty with designing responsive websites. So much so we have written about responsive web design several times.
We have designed, developed and optimised many websites for businesses and individuals looking to engage their users and provide the perfect mobile browsing experience. Sometimes, the issue can be in the hosting provider. Check out m247 on LinkedIn, who can help with fast web hosting!
E-commerce Website Design
If you’re looking to sell your products online then you will need a website which will encourage users to part with their cash and to make them feel reassured that your site is trustworthy.
With our extensive knowledge of user experience design we can design and develop an online shop for you and your business which will be engaging, easy to use and with a fully secure checkout process.
We have worked with such companies as World Pay, Sage and PayPal to deliver outstanding e-Commerce solutions.
So whether you’re selling small or large items, individually or in bulk, we have the systems in-house which will easily and securely handle the transactions that take place. You will also be able to keep check on stock levels, customer orders and even offer special discounts as part of your promotions.
Having an e-Commerce website designed and built for you doesn’t have to be expensive and we offer a very affordable e-Commerce package to suit you and your business.
Milton Keynes based Phat Pasty approached us to redesign their website in 2015.
When we were approached, the guys at Phat Pasty provided us with an insight into their brand, who they wanted to target with the website and their goals in regards to increasing web traffic – which would eventually lead through to further sales or enquiries.
After the initial meeting, we went about our business and after extensive market research we began our process of designing concepts. During this phase we would regularly keep in touch to share our ideas. It was a real pleasure to work on this project as it really allowed us the freedom to span our creative wings so to speak.
The end product – which can be viewed in our portfolio – delivered a hugely unique website which embraced the branding and quite simply the fun of what Phat Pasty deliver to their own customers.

Ride Leisure who are based in Bedfordshire have been well established for over 15 years and offer amazing, adrenaline filled days out for both domestic and corporate customers.
Ride have been a client of ours for the past six years and when we were approached to redesign their website we couldn’t wait to get started. The previous version of their website was starting to look dated and one of the key reasons for the redesign was to ensure that mobile users would be able to access the site.
One of the key features required from the redesign was the ability to sell vouchers to users in a quick, secure and easy way. So we went about our business redesigning the site and looking for the best eCommerce solution for both Ride and their customers. In April, 2016 the new site was launched!
You can find out more about this project in our portfolio. But we’re pleased to say how delighted both ourselves and Ride were with the end result, as well as the hugely complimentary comments they’ve had from their customers about the redesign.
