Everybody needs a web design. It will be the first port of call that many of your customers will come to and you can't afford to look unprofessional or inconsistent. What we do is take a more interconnected approach to site, one which can raise your profile, your sales and your income.
The most essential step in any business is to have an idea of who you are and what you offer. Your brand conveys this message through imagery and metaphor, tag lines and product names. Your brand is the ongoing conversation you're having with your customers.
We are experienced in graphic design from brochures and leaflets to livery and exhibition stands. Design for print isn't about self expression but communicating your message and we strive to maintain your brand’s individuality across all of your advertising.
We have a long history with SEO. It's very easy to be drawn in to the hype of companies who say their SEO gets you good positions in Google. They very rarely deliver. We believe in a process of analysis and action that puts your site in the best position to rank highly.
CrunchNet are a delight to work with. They were able to take my needs, wants and desires and deliver a website that worked as needed. Along the way they could intuit what possible enhancements and features would make what I wanted even better and build them in. I wouldn’t hesitate to work with them again.
Mark Chatterley – In Ear Entertainment
Steve has been working in web, print, graphics, SEO and branding since 2004 and, in that time, created sites for companies big and small. Whilst employed with several local agencies he worked on sites for Sudeley Castle, The Daily Mail, The Evening Standard and Daylesford Organic.
He set up on his own in September 2013 and has a passion for producing visually striking sites, print and branding that do complex and fun things.
I believe that setting up your siteis like setting up and business in its self. If done properly, it will be the hardest working employee you will ever pay. That's why the focus needs to be right from the beginning. That's why we don't make a sites for our clients, we make them for our clients' clients.
It's a really simple idea actually. We start off by examining your business, how it looks to the outside world and what you are trying to achieve with it. We then look at your competitors and see what they're doing and how they make things work. The site we create will make sure you aren't missing anything that your competitors are doing but will still help you carve out a niche for your own business.
Branding is a difficult balance between copy, design and the philosophy of marketing but it's one that is important to many businesses without them even noticing. It's easy to think that your small company doesn't need a brand at all but what you don't realise is that you have already created one for yourself and the more you grow, the harder it is to change your message later on.
Graphic design is all about consistency. Too many times, companies treat it as just another job. Each job is different and these slight differences make the difference between a good design and a great one. Each concept needs to communicate your brand and your message to an ever changing target audience, thanks to the online world. The best way of doing that is changing with your market, not trying to stay still against the tide. Big companies change their brands all the time as long as their core message, value and a sense of their original branding remains intact. As our relationship develops, that's what we will do with your print work as well.
By examining your business, your target audience and your competitors, each time we look at your job we are able to produce something that is as up-to-the-minute as is possible with print. It's as intelligent an approach as possible and exactly what your company needs.
I've been interested in SEO for many years and in that time I have seen lots of people trying lots of different things. The best options have always been to follow the lead of the search engines. If they want quicker sites? Give them quicker sites. If they want targeted information, give them that as well.
Search engines are their to serve their customers as much as you are to serve yours. It's no good trying to fight against what they are doing. They are too big and have too many resources. Ultimately, if you do things to try and fool them you are only hurting yourself. You don't want to get ranked for your desired keyword only to find your content isn't good enough. All that's going to happen is people will click away again. That's what search engines are trying to stop. That's why we should listen to them. It's their sandbox so lets use the buckets and spades they let us have and not worry about the inflatable dingy they want us to keep out of it.
