What we do

Most people would probably call us Web Designers or Web Developers, but we are both these things and much more. With over 20 years experience in the industry it might be easier to tell you the things we don't know about. From security to social media, back-ups to Bootstrap, marketing to mailing lists and many more we listen, research, advise, build and deliver.

We specialise in responsive web application development with a pedigree in Benchmarking Tools, Diagnostic Software, Data Collection / Processing, and Bespoke Application Development. This is not to ignore our experience in E-commerce, Content Management Systems, Booking Systems and Competition websites.

To discover the types of business we work with and more specific skillsets we possess, then read on below.

Who we work with

We work with many different sizes of business from a wide variety of sectors. Over the years we have provided solutions for our customers that serve small audiences, up to those that experience traffic in the 1000's per hour. Whomever we work with, we strive to understand their business so that we can utilise web technologies in the best way possible for them.

As well as our direct clients, we also work with a number of nationally and internationally recognised design, brand and marketing agencies who use us as their web development team. We provide them and their clients with advice, support and web development services.

...And what do they say?

"Our team at Shepherd and Wedderburn has worked with RF for nearly four years. In that time they have always been able to get to the root cause of any website problem with amazing speed and to get it fixed without delay. As well as maintaining our main website, they built an additional site for our financial planning arm and we were delighted with the end product."

Speak to the experts

We develop everything using PHP, JavaScript (& jQuery), HTML5, CSS3 and MySQL. We use and support a number of different frameworks and tools. Most of the bepoke applications we develop use our own propriartry platform FriendlyCMS (so named because of it's user friendliness).

We're natural born problem solvers.

For any project, RF adopt an agile approach but also understand when a more rigid project structure is required. At the heart of everything we do we put usability first and (boldly) class ourselves as UX Experts.

If you would like to find out more about our processes and how we can help you with your project then drop us a line and we'll be happy to tell you more.

A few final thoughts from the RF Twittersphere

Off the shelf websites? Good/bad? Wrong question. Who are they for? Right question. All about budget vs requirements vs audience. #webdesign
