WordPress Development


Crafting unique digital experiences


Our WordPress development service is not just about building websites; it’s about crafting unique digital experiences that resonate with your brand’s ethos and values. With an unwavering commitment to quality and detail, we specialise in creating custom WordPress themes that stand out in the digital space. Our approach is meticulous and tailored, ensuring that every aspect of your website reflects the uniqueness of your brand.

We take pride in our work, and this is why we steer clear of working over the top of cheap, purchased themes. We believe in originality and quality, understanding that your brand deserves a bespoke digital presence, not a cookie-cutter solution. Our team of expert developers and designers delve deep into the essence of your brand, creating custom themes from scratch. This bespoke approach not only ensures that your website is unique but also that it is optimised for performance, SEO, and user experience.

E-commerce is a realm we excel in. Recognising the evolving dynamics of online selling and shopping, we harness the power of WordPress to create robust, user-friendly e-commerce sites. Our expertise with WooCommerce, a leading e-commerce platform for WordPress, allows us to build seamless, engaging online stores. From product showcases to checkout processes, every element is crafted to provide an intuitive and enjoyable shopping experience, encouraging your customers to return time and again.

Understanding that every business has unique needs, we customise the WordPress admin area to suit our clients’ specific requirements. Our aim is to make managing your website as straightforward and hassle-free as possible. Whether it’s simplifying the content management process or providing custom analytics, we tailor the backend of your WordPress site to empower you and your team, ensuring you have the tools and insights you need at your fingertips.

At Greenwich Design, we believe in keeping things clean and efficient. This is why we keep plugin use to a minimum. Excessive use of plugins can bloat your website, slow down performance, and introduce security vulnerabilities. Our approach is strategic and thoughtful; we only use essential, well-coded plugins and ensure that they are always kept up to date. This minimalistic approach not only keeps your website lean and fast but also more secure and easier to manage.

However, we understand that sometimes your unique requirements may not be met by existing plugins. In such cases, we don’t shy away from rolling up our sleeves and building our own. Our team of skilled developers can craft custom plugins tailored precisely to your business needs, ensuring seamless integration and functionality. This bespoke solution ensures that your website functions exactly as you need it to, without any compromise.

Security is paramount in the digital world, and at Greenwich Design, we don’t take it lightly. We follow industry-standard security practices to safeguard your website from potential threats. Our partnership with WordFence, a leading web application firewall provider for WordPress, ensures that your website is fortified against hacks, malware, and other vulnerabilities. Regular updates, backups, and security checks are part of our routine, ensuring that your digital presence is not just impressive but also secure.

In essence, our WordPress development service at Greenwich Design is a comprehensive solution tailored to meet your unique digital needs. From crafting bespoke themes to building custom plugins, from setting up robust e-commerce platforms to customising your admin area, and from minimising plugin use to fortifying your website with top-notch security – we cover it all. Our commitment to quality, attention to detail, and a client-centric approach sets us apart, making us not just your service provider but your trusted digital partner.

Your brand has a story, a personality, a vision – and we at Greenwich Design are here to ensure that it shines brightly in the digital world. Let’s embark on this journey together, crafting a website that not only meets your needs but exceeds your expectations, setting a new standard for what your digital presence can achieve. Welcome to Greenwich Design, where your WordPress website is not just built but is meticulously crafted and cared for.

How we build websites at Greenwich Design

How we work

How frustrating it is when the website you’re trying to access is slow or clunky? Our brilliant team of in-house design experts and web developers work hand-in-hand to make sure your website is user-friendly as well as looking great. First, we’ll sit down with you to find out how your website fits into your broader marketing strategy. For some of our clients, e-Commerce is the main objective; for others, it’s about storytelling and brand-building. We’ll discuss everything from your business goals and messaging, to assets like video that bring your brand to life. We’ll also chat to you about the latest technologies available to make your website stand out, and suggest how you can incorporate other content, like your social media channels or blogs, to provide a richer brand experience.

Planning is everything

As your website design agency, planning is a core part of what we do. It’s important that we spend the time upfront to ensure we have everything in place to make the design process run as smoothly as possible. Before we put pen to paper, we’ll work closely with you to understand your communications objectives, and we’ll develop a detailed scope of work that reflects this. This covers everything from the ins and outs of user flow and navigation analytics, to the design and functionality of each page

Your visual language.

Once we have your website scope laid out, it’s time for our talented designers to get their creative chops around the project. They’ll start by producing moodboards to inspire you and provide a sense of the potential design direction. This is all part of establishing your visual language.

At the same time, our website developers begin mapping out the site, first putting together simple wireframes to plot out all the functionality required for each page. This helps us to figure out the best user journey and allows us to work out what content should be displayed on each page.

Prototype pages.

Once we know you’re happy with the wireframes, our team will focus on a couple of key pages and work closely with you to develop and refine the visual design style and functionality. The next step is concept approval – you just give us the nod and we’ll roll out the template design and functionality for the whole website.

Using a design tool called Sketch, we create an interactive prototype so that you can get a real feel for the site before we move into the final development phase. This is a really important part of the feedback process and ensures that there are no surprises or delays once the site’s in development. It goes without saying that all our web designs are responsive; we create individual mobile designs to guarantee your visitors have the best user experience and interface no matter what device they’re on.

Bespoke web development.

Greenwich Design’s digital team are specialists in WordPress – it’s our ‘go to’ platform of choice and our experience and expertise means we know how to get the very best out of it for you. We develop all of our websites in a ‘staged environment’ so that testing and approval can be carried out safely before the sites go live. As part of our build process we customise the admin area of the site to meet your needs, providing you with the flexibility to easily manage and update your content internally once the site is live.

We ensure all our websites are SEO friendly – that means optimising load speeds, minimising code, implementing SSL, compressing images and ensuring that conversion tracking is fully integrated as part of the website build.

Population and migration.

We’ll work with you to map out the content you need and then we’ll populate your site with contextual content, imagery and video. If it’s a new site, we can also help with the content creation – from copy to visuals. If we’re redesigning your existing website, we’ll make sure we migrate all the content across to the new build without a broken link in sight!

Putting it to the test

We’re nearly there… The last piece of the puzzle is to give the site a thorough road test before it goes live. Our web designers bug test the site through different browsers across loads of different devices. If there’s a problem, they’ll find it. We can also test eCommerce payments and any other API integrations so that once we flip the switch to ‘on’, there’ll be no unpleasant surprises!

And we’re live...

This is the moment everything’s been leading up to – time to show off your new website to the world. Our development team makes sure your old site is backed up safely then we push your new site live, synching it with your domain. We’ll keep an eye on everything to make sure it’s all functioning as intended, while you sit back and enjoy your shiny new website.

Hosting and maintenance

If you have any hosting or maintenance requirements, we’ll take care of that for you too. Our hosting platform is built with developers in mind and we have a server specialist on hand to deal with any technicalities that may arise. We can set you up with either shared hosting or Virtual Private Servers.

If you’re looking for peace of mind with the ongoing maintenance of your site, we have options for all scales of website, ranging from small business information sites up to multi-country e-Commerce stores. Packages include monthly WordPress plugins and incremental updates; monthly backup; monitoring of WordPress errors; loading speed monitoring; malware scan and removal; monthly site report; Google Analytics setup; and domain registration – we can register all domains on your behalf and set up your email accounts via Google.
