Web Design & Development in Macclesfield

Based in Macclesfield, Cheshire throughout our entire 30 years since start-up - making us the longest standing Design Agency in Macclesfield to date - we deliver web design and development solutions for all types and sizes of business.

We know that no two clients are the same, so we take on all projects on an individual basis rather than trying to use the ‘one size fits all’ option.

Whether you want a bespoke built e-commerce website with full product and order management, or a simple web page to let the world know who/where you are, we will explain all the options in plain English and recommend the best solution.

Responsive Web Design & Development

We ensure that each project is delivered with the latest technologies, capabilities and industry leading web design. We are skilled in PHP, ASP.NET and many of the open source software such as WordPress and Umbraco and more - so you can be sure that we can deliver your ideal website, as well as developing new functionality for any legacy sites.

With mobile browsing now overtaking desktop, It's essential you future-proof your web presence by ensuring it's optimised for desktop, tablet and mobile. All our websites come responsive as standard.


Increasingly are taking their shopping online rather than to the high street, so it is more important than ever to make your online shopping experience the best there is.

With our up to date and professional ecommerce solutions the process of creating an online shop is both quick and effortless (for you). We will deliver your ecommerce website built and ready for you to start adding your own product or we can assist with the product population - even helping you to source or create product imagery for your new shop. Either way your online shop will be configured and ready for your customers to start shopping without much setup required from you.

Don’t be put off by the technical terminology out there. We can guide you through what is needed to set up an online shop, from product images and shopping carts through to merchant accounts and payment gateways such as PayPal, SagePay, WorldPay and more.

If you already have an e-commerce shop and feel it needs refreshing or updating (perhaps your site is not mobile-friendly?) we can assist in bringing your shop up to date and up to speed.

Content Management Systems

If you want to update content on your website, but are concerned you don’t have any technical knowledge, there’s no need to worry. With a Content Management System (CMS) you don’t have to rely on a web developer to make changes to your site as anyone who can use a text editor can make changes and publish them online immediately.

Our powerful integrated CMS are simple to use and allows you to update a single page or an entire website with the minimum of training. Best of all, you don’t need to have any HTML or technical skills to do it. Most clients are up and running with just 2-3 hours training and we also offer on-going support packages should you need it.

Our Content Management System expertise includes WordPress and Umbraco, however we can also support any other system you might have in mind – Joomla, Magento, Concrete 5 and more.
