Web development and website design

A website is usually your chance to make a great first impression. Checking online is often the first step someone will take when researching you, so you better put your best foot forward. We’ll help you do just that, and make customers sit up and notice.

Why you need a great website

The importance of a website cannot be overstated. Customers will often judge an entire brand based purely on their initial interactions with your web presence. A well-made website adds huge credibility to a business and can generate work while you sleep. And conversely, a poorly made website will turn people off straight away. In fact, 40% of people leave an unattractive website immediately.

So, investing in a quality website is a no-brainer. The amount of care you put into your website communicates how much care you put into your company.

We can build anything from a simple landing page to a full-blown online store. We offer a comprehensive design and development process that puts your brand at the centre of what we create. Your website should be a clear and beautiful execution of your brand and visual identity, consistent with the rest of your online and offline presence.

Not only this, but it should have quality coding. We custom-code all of our websites from the ground up, meaning we can create truly bespoke and unique designs. We also optimize our code to ensure reliability, fast load times, and a secure browsing experience.

Our websites don’t only look the part, they are built and coded to the highest standard.

Web development with Fook

Whatever website we build for you, we make sure to create an experience that engages visitors, allows people to discover who you are, increases awareness in your business, and drives people towards certain key actions (for example, email sign-ups or purchases).

We have a team of designers, developers, and copywriters that will create a truly bespoke website for your business, custom-coded and incorporating industry best practices, and responsive for all screen sizes. We also offer Search Engine Optimization (SEO) to keep your website competitive on Google, Bing, and other search engines.

To make sure we capture precisely what your business does, and present your brand in the best possible way, we do plenty of groundwork to really understand your company and what you want your online presence to achieve. This way, we can create an effective design that is true to your brand and mission, and write copy in a way that sounds authentic and sincere.

While the duration of the project depends on the scale of the site, typically the entire process would take a minimum of 5 weeks, with larger projects running towards 8 weeks or more.

For a touchpoint that can completely define your relationship, or potential relationship, with a customer, it is vital that it is firing on all cylinders. We will make this happen for you.d

And while we are a studio based in Toronto and Edinburgh, we happily offer web development to clients anywhere in the world.

Our web development process

The exact look-and-feel and structure to your site will depend on your business and your goals. And depending on those goals, we can build anything from a landing page, to a fully-fledged website, to an e-commerce store complete with order fulfilment.

After we’ve taken the time to understand your business and ambitions, we kick off our web process by creating a concept for the design and content, before we begin any actual development. By doing this before coding, we can be incredibly flexible in terms of making changes and honing in on a design we all love.

Once a design is agreed, we move to development. Here, there is a constant dialogue between the design and development teams to ensure that the final product is incredibly refined with every detail perfected. We’ll also be in frequent contact with you to give you updates on progress, making sure you’re happy every step of the way.

When we finish coding, we make any final desired tweaks before the site goes live. When everyone is happy, we push the big green button and your beautiful new website is there for the world to see.

Combining these web development skills with our abilities in writing, designing, and photography/videography, with Fook you will have an all-singing, all-dancing website, with as many bells and whistles as you wish.
