Bespoke Website Design

We approach all our web designs with the understanding that it is the fusion of creative design and technical knowledge that produce a successful online presence. The Design Shed provide the full web design service from the initial planning and design phase, implementation, support & training to hosting, domain registration and on-going maintenance.

Search Engine Optimisation and Internet Marketing

Search engine optimisation is the process of achieving the highest possible search engine position for your website.
If you are starting a new company or business and would benefit from page 1 listings in google then we really are the people to talk to.
We can research search terms related to your business and have creative solutions to improving and securing a high postion in the Search Engine Results Pages (SERP's). We also integrate search engine optimisation into all our web designs.

Content Management - Wordpress, Drupal, Joomla

There is a selection of content management systems available to use and current trends favour Wordress, joomla and drupal.
We have knowledge in these areas and can help you decide on the right content management system for your company's website, however we can also custom build a CMS for you if that is required or preferable.

Efliers and Mailchimp Custom Templates

Mailchimp is one of the most popular tools for storing multiple mailing lists and creating online campaigns to promote your company by delivering regular eflyers and newsletters.
The Design Shed can custom build you a mailchimp newsletter template to compliment your company's presence and integrate the mailing list with the website.

Online Video Content

As internet technologies and broadband facilities have evolved, the options to view video content online has expanded. We offer the full range of services required to present your video content online from digital conversion to online presentation and viewing.
There are multiple platforms out there to host your video content, youtube and vimeo being the most popular and both providing their own advantages.

Flash Animation and Games

Technologies have shifted a lot in the past 3 years and with apple now deciding not to support flash we always air on the side of caution when integrating flash into our designs.
With that said, there are still opportunities to build games and visually rich internet experiences that flash can be the perfect platform for.


Paypal, Worldpay, Dontaions, Gift Aid
More than ever the arts are looking for practical solutions to raise funding and take payments online and as always there are multiple options. Luckily, we have experience in this area and can guide you on the most practical and cost effective method for you.

Company Identity
