Web development and website design
Why you need a great website
A beautiful, on-brand, easy-to-use website will work wonders for you. When you give people a great browsing experience, they’ll spend more time with you and want to learn more about you. Ultimately, a great website will engage people, and make it easy for them to follow up their interest with action.
So, the importance of a website cannot be overstated. It’s one of the main ways people will discover and research you, and often people will judge an entire brand based purely on their initial interactions with your web presence. Indeed, a poorly made website will turn people off straight away, with 40% of people leaving an unattractive website immediately.
Investing in a quality website, therefore, is a no-brainer. The amount of care you put into your web presence communicates how much care you put into what you do. The more care and precision, the more credibility your brand gets. The more clarity and ease of understanding, the more conversions you get.
And it just so happens that we’re the team to deliver that for you. We can build anything from a simple landing page to a full-blown online store, offering a comprehensive design and development process that puts your brand and your goals at the centre of what we create.
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 brand, and drives people towards certain key actions (for example, email sign-ups or purchases).
We’ll also ensure that your website is a clear and beautiful execution of your branding, consistent with the rest of your online and offline presence.
We have a team of designers, developers, and copywriters that will create a truly bespoke website for your brand, custom-coded and incorporating industry best practices, and responsive to 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 you do, and present your brand in the best possible light, we do plenty of groundwork to really understand you and what you want to achieve. This way, we can create an effective design that is true to your brand and your mission, and write copy in a way that sounds authentic and encourages people to act.
Not only this, but the quality of our coding is top notch. We optimize our code to ensure reliability, fast load times, and a secure browsing experience. So our websites don’t just look the part, they are built and coded to the highest standard.
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.
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
While the duration of a website project depends on the scale of the site, typically our entire design and development process takes a minimum of 5 weeks, with larger projects running towards 8 weeks or more.
In terms of the website we would build for you, the exact appearance and structure of your site will depend on your brand 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 you and your ambitions, we kick off our web process by creating a concept for the design and content, before we begin any actual coding. By doing things this way, 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 and coding. 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, design, and photography/videography, with Fook you will have an all-singing, all-dancing website, with as many bells and whistles as you wish.
