What is the difference between web-design & web development?

Many people use the terms web design and development interchangeably. “Web design” commonly refers to both design (planning, graphic design, user experience, graphics – often called “front end development”) and development (programming, and testing – often called “Back end development”).

On this page, I’m referencing web development as a more technical term relating to technical capability. If you’re not technically-minded and are actually interested in our web design services, please head there.

1. Website

Make your business processes more efficient by adding new technology and functionality. Looking to add e-commerce, robust case studies, or integrate with Xero? 

Investing in these tools often makes more sense on updated technology. Adding a bolt-on tool to an outdated website is often less effective and costs more than creating a new website with the functionality built in. 

Likewise, new Content Management Systems are easier for website administrators to update with content and tools.

We can assess if it will be faster and cost less on a new platform, or if your current one will last the distance.

2. Website

Perhaps you are looking for technical skills to support your inhouse designer, design agency, co-ordinator, IT or content team?

We are happy to plug the gaps and work together to boost your capability and make changes achievable by collaborating as part of your team.

Request the web development services that complement your own skill set, including scoping, wireframing, graphic design, UX design, seo, web design and development, writing, video production, content loading, hosting, training, support, tracking, and conversion rate optimisation.


3. Wordpress
Web development

Wordpress is our thing. Maybe it’s yours too?  We can help to upgrade or migrate your current site.

Or if you have some knowledge but need extra support, ask about: user access, building new templates or pages, installing catalogues, careers pages, integrations with other software, e.g. with Xero or Zoho SalesIQ, recurring membership sites, reducing spam enquiries, complex form development, database design, hosting, configuring new functionality, Wordpress seo, Schema, speed & performance optimisation, image compressing software, Core Web Vitals, Livechat, and ecommerce. 

4. Wordpress

Some agencies like to hold their cards close to their chest. We like to share.

Our philosophy is that it’s the modern way for the client to be able to do as much as they can. Get Wordpress support and training from our Wordpress expert, so you can take control and do more for less.
