Wide-Eyed Design Websites

Good website design isn’t about buying a template and filling in the blanks. It’s about making sure that your website works hard for your business.

We design and build beautiful, affordable, secure, search-engine optimised, responsive websites, e-commerce websites & online solutions.  Our websites look good, load fast, are easy to navigate and are designed to promote your online presence; whether that’s by converting leads, selling online, profiling your services or showcasing your portfolio.

Wide-Eyed Design Websites Are…


With over 50% of all websites being viewed on mobile phones, responsive website design should be standard but you would be surprised at the number of websites that are still built to be viewed only on desktop computers

The websites we design & build are responsive which means they flow to fit the size of the screen they’re viewed on.


Every business has different needs (& budgets) so every website we design and build is different too. But we’ve always believed that a website shouldn’t cost the earth.

You’ll be surprised at how little it would cost to get your business online so why not contact us to chat about your requirements.


When we design and build a website, we don’t just upload a template & fill in the blanks.  The website we design & build is built to grow as your business does.

This means that you can begin with a basic website & then add extra functionality such as an e-commerce option or online booking system when you need to.

Easy to Use

At the risk of talking ourselves out of a job, it’s your website so you should be able to use it. We build your website using a Content Management System & a modular page builder.

This means that you can change text and images yourself at no cost, whenever you want to. Of course if you’re too busy or get stuck then we’re always here to help.

Search Engine Optimised

There’s no point in having a website that no-one can find. Our websites are built to be Search Engine ready from the start.

We also add Google Analytics so you can see where your visitors come from, the search terms they use to find you and the most popular pages on your website.



Our website hosting packages include SSL certification as standard. This means that your website is authenticated and encrypted, creating a safer online experience for your business and your customers.

For additional peace of mind we also provide a range of tailored website maintenance packages which keep your website backed up, secure and up-to-date.
