We are your dedicated guide
We work in collaborative partnership with you. Your input is an integral part of the website development – we can’t do this without you!
The many parts of Web
We consider your audience, brand, resources, technical knowledge, budget, timelines, afterthoughts and support requirements.
“We felt that we were treated as a priority for Fat Beehive which was reassuring, as the project was our first ever website, so we had no prior experience.”Sally Yates, Charities Manager, Schroder Charity Trust
To design an appropriate website we need to understand your organisation and your audience. User Experience (UX) work is the pause before we put pen to paper, and gives us a solid basis to create a website that addresses your audience and your organisation.
We can provide help with your content by creating in-depth guidance on type, structure and tone for your entire website in a content strategy.
Search Engine Keywords
As a part of a content strategy or as a stand alone element, we will create a search engine optimisation plan and train you in how to implement this into your website.
We define projects by creating specifications, wireframes and prototypes. We organise and run projects using long and short term schedule planning, time tracking and issue tracking tools. Flexibility is a key asset in managing our clients' projects.
“Fat Beehive delivered a well-designed and very flexible website that allows us to present a huge amount of varying content types to best advantage. ”Deirdre de Barra, Senior Information and Digital Manager, Tommy's
We stay away from jargon to describe our methods. We work with great flexibility from the beginning of the project until the point where the specification and wireframes are pinned down.
Figure out the project, then execute it
Once we have agreed and signed off a visual design, we work on an agreed and tight timeline. This provides controlled budgets and controlled risk for our charity and not-for-profit clients.
Design brings our ideas, distilled in the UX, specification and wireframes, to life. We build the website with a modern, open source CMS to create an accessible, responsive website (working from mobile phone to large desktop screens) using best practice standards.
Training is an integral part of our website developments; we provide detailed training with materials. During content input we provide tools for you to detail minor changes and snagging issues with your website. Often overlooked, this is a crucial stage of website development.
Our support team provide friendly assistance with your website under a comprehensive Service Level Agreement. Our account managers advise and plan further developments with you. We deliver supported websites which develop with your organisation year on year.
