Our Value (or iDENtity…)
We pride ourselves on three core values.
GOOD TO HAVE AROUND
Our employees add real value, both as a member of the DEN team and to our clients. We provide a human touch in all our interactions, reflecting the DEN family spirit. Our client partnerships are trustworthy, reliable and rich with relevant proactive ideas.
STRIKING THE RIGHT BALANCE
We deliver adventure and creativity balanced with a clear focus on client goals and design functionality. Our commitment and hard work is balanced by a supportive culture with an emphasis on play. Being excellent at what we do is balanced with a humble and flexible approach to our work.
PERFECTING OUR CRAFT
We strive for efficiency without compromising quality. We stay abreast of developments within our field and actively pursue personal growth and learning. We aim to deliver only the very best to our clients.
USER FOCUSED. QUALITY DESIGN. EFFICIENT BUILD. PROCESS SIMPLE.
We work in the latest coding languages (HTML5, CSS3 & PHP). Functionality and usability are of utmost importance whilst always maintaining strong, appropriate design. We are seriously passionate about ensuring we closely meet our clients brief whilst inputting our employed expertise.
APPROACH TO WORK
Through our process we create a transparent and collaborative project environment in which we can seamlessly work with our clients. We regularly update our clients throughout our process to ensure that the creative and technical progress is fully understood and that we have the feedback we require from our clients. This is key to ensuring that we are delivering the most suitable and honest solution available for our client’s needs - at pace.
Style Tile - these consist of the fonts, colours and interface elements (button style, icons, menu elements etc) that communicate the essence of a visual brand for the web. We will take a brief from you to help focus our direction and then present
a number of style tiles which are then re ned and used as the style basis for the website designs - it makes working up the actual websites designs a much quicker process.
To be clear - we DON’T design each individual page/element as a at design, then iterate, then get sign o , then start building online. We DO create a style tile, iterate/sign o the tile and then use this to work up live pages online which we can then be easily amended as necessary.
In conjunction with creating the style tiles, using the information you provide we will put a straight forward site map together - purely for clarity of content and communication and because internally they are useful for the whole team. We are totally exible to amend, having the site map document allows us to e ciently communicate any changes.
Using the tile and site map we will start to build the required pages. We only build sites that are fully responsive (desktop, tablet, mobile). We use the latest coding languages and we can optimise the site for any requested browers, new and old. All our sites are SEO optimised (we have SEO retainers with a number clients so we have specialists in this area). We would recommend Wordpress for these sites, totally scaleable, super easy to use the backend and hugely supported.
Essentially we test every site to within an inch of its life. Across browsers and devices its no good looking great on solely the clients computer - we are user focused and therefore always consider diversity of device, full testing spec can be provided. In summary our approach to the project would be honest, quality, time, client and user focused. We won’t rest until you and your user are happy.
