The results have exceeded our expectations.

akW assisted us in designing and developing a website for our construction business. The whole process was straightforward and they took the pains away from managing the project. Matt and his team took the creative lead and used the information we provided to create a great website.

The biggest win was the research they put into the project and the high quality copy.

So many website designers create a website that looks great, but does not initiate the customer to create action. AkW really understood this process and realise that an effective website needs to create an enquiry or a sale.Their attention to detail was fantastic.

User-driven web design Northampton

We're a Northampton based duo of design geeks that combine UX, on-page SEO and on-brand messaging to deliver smashing websites that are destined to succeed.

Seamless customer journey through website design. 

We’re online shoppers ourselves. We understand the importance of an engaging customer journey and your brand’s voice transferred into an online world.
Templates don’t always reflect your brand and product as they should. Hence, we offer bespoke and semi-bespoke eCommerce services to navigate and channel your company’s identity with an online platform. We combine our passion for aesthetically fabulous layouts and seamless UX to bring modern solutions to business owners.

We optimise your website from the start.

What’s the use of a fabulous layout and visuals on your websites if it’s not found by your prospects anyway? We’ve seen too many beautiful websites that struggle to show up in organic search. The latest studies show that the average 30-year-old person is more likely to believe a company with a strong online presence than to trust the recommendations from friends and family.
That’s why all our projects are finished with on-page optimisation to make Google fall in love with your new platform.
Although you may need to invest in an active SEO strategy to start dominating your online marketplace, you still get a better kick-start with our on-page SEO website design.

Mobile responsive website design, always.

We’re sick and tired of websites that are not optimised for mobile users. Over 60% of online searches and transactions happen on smartphones. Moreover, the mobile responsiveness of the website is a huge ranking factor for search engines. Mobile-friendly designs are not a luxury anymore, but rather a necessity.
We go all and beyond to assure a smooth transition from desktops to mobiles for a remarkable user experience on both devices.

Web design agency in Northampton

Northampton geeks, crazy about website design

With over 8 years of combined experience in web design (read: blood, sweat and 12 keyboards later), we’ve learnt about what makes the website a success. And most certainly, we know what to avoid.

We’ve seen too many average and questionable websites that neither represented the business accurately nor performed in search engines.

Not every web designer is a UX developer and SEO expert and vice versa. Hence, we decided to expand our expertise and join our passion for fabulous, functional layouts with branding, UX, UI and SEO to offer website design solutions out of this world.

Web design FAQs

How much do you charge to build a website?

It’s hard to set the price of the website if we know nothing about your requirements. We design and develop both custom and semi-custom websites that require different functionalities and components, depending on your unique situation. We will be able to provide an estimated price after our non-obligatory meeting, where we’ll ask about your vision and requirements for the new platform.

How long does it take to design and build a website?

The timeframe of the project hugely depends on components of the site as well as additional services you may require. Usually, our timeline for building a website is between 3 to 6 weeks. We will be able to give you an estimated timeframe after onboarding. Vitis our approach page to find out more about our process.

What platforms do you build websites on?

We specialise in building websites on platforms like Webflow, WordPress, WooCommerce and Shopify. On many occasions, we add custom code to the websites to improve functionality and provide the best results. We can also code your website from scratch, but it takes more time and thus, resources to accomplish that request.

Will my website be optimised for mobile users?

Absolutely! Approximately 60% of your website traffic will land on your page using a mobile phone, hence it’s crucial for us to create a beautiful experience suitable for smaller screens. 

Will my website include SEO?

All our websites include on-page technical SEO. That means that during the build of your platform, we ensure that all the website components are readable for search engines like Google or Bing. It won’t assure that your website will start ruling the search engines yet, but will definitely give you a better kick-start. If you want your website to be loved and pushed by Google, we can help you in creating a long-term SEO strategy and its’ implementation.

Will you write content for my website?

We provide copywriting services at additional cost if requested. We can help you in creating long-form written content that will be loved both by Google and actual visitors. We’ll ask you a lot of questions, as you’re the person that knows your business, clients and their expectations the best. That will help us in crafting the content that spreads your message and in the meantime, will be optimised for search engines.

Where are you based?

We are web developers and SEO geeks based in Northampton. We work with clients locally, nationally and internationally. We love meeting face-to-face, which is super easy for clients based in Northamptonshire and surrounding areas.

Will you help me if I have a limited budget?

Absolutely! We love collaborating with like-minded starting and small businesses and learning from them! If you have a set budget, simply let us know and we’ll adjust our services accordingly.

Will I be able to update my website?

Of course! You will have full access to the backend of your website, regardless of the platform, it’s built on. After finishing your project, we will spend some time together showing you how to navigate your new website and how to do minor changes yourself. Additionally, we’ll supply you with supporting materials for future references if needed. However, we recommend that a professional developer complete more complex changes to the structure and layout of the website and maintain plugins. We offer maintenance services - from basic to custom SEO-included packages. Contact us to find out more.
