Dark Sea Web Design is based in Cumbria, UK and first began producing commercial websites in 1997. Our web design projects 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. Subsequently, the Limited company was formed in 2000. As a long established UK web design company, our current client database includes both local and international companies.
What do we offer as a web design company?
With our extensive design and marketing experience we will customize your website to suit the needs of your customers. We will look closely at many factors. These include:
- 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
- quality and style of language and expression used
- security and privacy compliance (GDPR)
We are meticulous in our crafting of a website to ensure its marketability both to the intended customer and the most important search engines. This particularly applies to Google. So your site should be able to enjoy a far greater audience than many other sites. With almost 4 billion people worldwide now connected to the Internet, that’s some audience!
One thing we do not do – being technically clever for the sake of it. Rationality of purpose for a client’s website is always uppermost in our minds. Complex Java scripting and animations, again initially impressive perhaps, can and do cause pages to load more slowly. This risks penalties on the likes of Google. We only use such devices in sites where they have an important, functional role which is relative to the product or service being marketed.
Web Design – Company Philosophy
In short, 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.
