Web Design & Development
We work closely with clients to build websites that truly add value to their business. Customers expect more than just a brochure site, they want a great experience that seeks to inform them - and that's what we deliver.
Is your website pulling its weight? Having a website that doesn't generate leads or sales is a bit like having a 'human' office cat that sleeps all day. Your website is the cornerstone of a successful digital strategy and should be a priority.
Professional & Engaging Websites
There's nothing worse than feeling like you have to make excuses or lower expectations when you're speaking to potential new clients or customers and you want to show them your website. Having a professional looking website that truly engages your audience means that you can rely on it to help win new clients and generate more sales.
The sites that we build are designed to appeal to the people who want to engage with your business. Making a website that looks nice isn't difficult, getting it to generate results is another matter entirely and relies on using data and insights to help tailor the experience your website can deliver.
Discovery & Planning
Defining a core understanding of your expectations and requirements is how we build successful websites and why business owners, like you, are so happy with them. Websites are about connecting with the right people and giving them the information or outcome they want, quickly and easily. In order to do this we need to build a solid foundation of what your business is about and how we can maximise the potential of your new website. We'll look at the following:
- How the business wants to grow
- Key stakeholder vision and requirements
- Exploration and analysis of modern web design
- Creating a design and feature inspiration board
- Documentation of site features
- Creating blueprints for key web pages
Thorough planning ensures all round happiness and success at the end of a project, paving the way for a great and long lasting digital partnership that will see us help you grow your business exponentially.Learn more about discovery
High Build Quality
We invest heavily into understanding the core principles and technologies behind high quality websites, resulting in a hassle free experience for you and a consistent, engaging experience for your site visitors. The websites we build age gracefully, functioning just as well after years of use. Upgrading or modifying the site is easy and we make every effort to adhere to development best practices.
Amongst other important aspects, our sites:
- Load quickly, ensuring no penalties from Google and other search engines are applied
- Are secure, greatly helping to prevent hostile takeover of your site and its resources (e.g. email delivery facilities and client email addresses)
- Optimised for desktop and mobile devices, meaning that all site visitors receive a great experience
Whether you want no involvement or full involvement of what happens on your website we can deliver a website and level of service that will keep you happy. Before we start building your website, we work with you to define how each page and the content it contains will be maintained and who by.
We work with a highly customisable system that allows us to develop interfaces that can be tailored to your exact requirements. You won't need any technical knowledge or experience and we don't use any of the of "one size fits all" solutions that exist in lower quality site builds.
Online stores can be easy to run and you can have the flexibility you need to continuously enhance and develop the customer experience and checkout process that people receive. We specialise in building e-commerce solutions that are easy to manage and scalable to meet the needs of businesses as they grow in size, by number of products and customers.
Built for Search Engines & Users
Having a site for the sake of it is a waste of money, time and opportunities. We work hard to understand what your site visitors want and how to make it as easy as possible to find them. Whether it's simplifying and optimising the categories and navigation of an e-commerce website or tailoring pages around specific search phrases and keywords, our websites are built to perform and help grow your business.Learn more about digital marketing

What our clients say about us
I love my new website from Square One! Sean and the team worked closely with me to understand what I wanted and needed to happen with my website. The feedback I've had has been really great. The Square One team also did my logo which looks very smart (I even had someone who works in graphic design compliment me on it saying how much better than what I had before!). Sean is also very transparent about costs, so as a business owner I knew exactly what to expect.
I had been really badly let down by a previous company when I asked them to build our new website, it turns out they just wanted my money. Sean and the Square One team were a true breath of fresh air. They shared my passion, helped me understand what I needed, worked with my budget and gave me everything I was looking for. Communication was always open and clear, helping me to understand the pros and cons of each decision. They are now helping me to grow my business, looking at SEO, blog posts and continuous website development. It’s so great now that I’ve finally found a partner I can trust and know that they are working with my best interests at heart – THANK YOU I cannot recommend you guys enough!
Square One were keen to spend time and effort understanding every aspect of my project in order to create a brand and website and mobile app that reflected both my music and spirit. The Square One team listened, learned, developed ideas and ultimately created a website which for me, has clarity, vision, originality and a wonderfully uplifting feel. Whilst building my Sound Healing Cards App Sean and his team were empathetic, dedicated to creating high-quality work and tireless in their capacity to iron out technical problems and accommodate my requirements. Sean and his team are a delight to work with in every way.
I have hired Square One several times to design a number of branded items for my business, both online and off. Sean and his team are great listeners. Their work is precise, quick, clear and they have a high level of integrity towards the work. They have the expert knowledge to justify standing their ground and being absolutely right when it comes to how people connect with design and branding. If you need any kind of visual branding, Square One is your agency.
We were delighted with the branding work Sean and his team have done for our Events & Wedding Planning Business. When it came to layout ideas, helping us choose between different fonts and guiding the design process everything was spot on and we couldn't have been happier. Overall the work Sean and Square One Digital produced looked great, was cost effective and really helped us look like a much more professional business.
The Square One team are ambitious and very knowledgeable about creating great user interfaces. Sean and his team give unique and high quality feedback on user interfaces and are adept at applying their excellent working knowledge. When they start a task, they do it properly.
Sean and the team at Square One Digital are tremendously accessible and had many great ideas for improving my site, my professionalism, and my brand. They are clearly hard workers who are very knowledgeable about web design, SEO, and performance. They are also very flexible in terms of working with client schedules and changes to projects.
As organisers for Sussex Day we wanted to engage a young Sussex company for our branding and design so we could showcase their talent. Square One Digital had to deliver a visual style that didn't play to stereotypes and incorporated something unexpected without being complicated. Not easy! They really understood the brief, working quickly and effectively to come up with unique and creative concepts. If you're looking for business-like creativity, try Square One. You won't be disappointed.
We started working with Square One Digital on the initial design and work-flows of our new mobile app. Sean managed the project, he and his team were great to work with. It was our first time in the mobile app world and we were guided through the process of planning and design very professionally. Their collaborative nature and experience really helped us deliver a strong MVP to market, on time and on budget.
We deal with Sean regular here at Steadlands, he is nothing but a pleasure to work with and always goes above and beyond the call of duty to provide an excellent and comprehensive service.
Square One Digital know everything there is to know about hosting on Wordpress and are extremely reliable and professional. Most of all they are responsive. Sean responds to all queries and requests promptly and professionally, whatever time of the day or week, and really values his long term relationships between his agency and clients. He takes the time to go the extra distance. Their creative streak is not to go unnoticed either: they designed a series of illustrations for my website which have attracted numerous positive comments. Overall I recommend them very highly.
