Dark Sea Web Design is based in Cumbria, UK and first began producing commercial websites in 1997. These were initially for small UK businesses in Cumbria and the North West of England. However, word of mouth recommendations and a good visibility on the key search engines quickly led to the expansion of the business and the Limited company was formed in 2000. As a long established UK web design company, our current client database includes businesses throughout the UK as well as other countries.
We offer a no nonsense approach to what is a complex yet vitally important area of activity for any commercial business. With our extensive design and marketing experience we will customize your website to suit the needs of your customers. We will look closely at how best to convey the essence of your business, the most appropriate layout of the site, ease of navigation, usage of and balance between graphics and text and even the quality and style of language and expression used.
We use the latest design software and are meticulous in our crafting of a site in order to ensure its marketability to the most important and appropriate search engines. Thus your site can have the opportunity to enjoy a far greater audience than many other sites and with almost 3 billion people worldwide now connected to the Internet, that’s some audience!
We do not believe in being technically clever just for the sake of it. Rationality of purpose for a client’s site is always uppermost in our minds. Complex Java scripting and animations, again initially impressive perhaps, can and do cause pages to load more slowly risking penalties on the main search engines. We only use such devices in sites where they have an important, functional role to play relative to the product/service being marketed.
Web Design Company Philosophy
To summarise, our company philosophy is to create the kind of website that most businesses want: easy to find, stylish and appealing, quick loading, mobile responsive and easy to buy from.
