9thwave is a small but perfectly formed web design & print studio based in Bradford, West Yorkshire that creates award-winning work both online and offline.
9thwave was founded in 2004 and has since continued to produce stunning and effective design across brand identity, print and digital media.
We are an ethical business and enjoy working with not-for-profit organisations, charities and community based businesses. We also offer great deals for new start-up businesses where the need for quality work at an affordable rate is paramount.
We create cost effective design that is focused on delivering results for our clients and their target audience. We see design as an investment, not as an afterthought.
Our passion for design and commitment to high standards means repeat business for our clients and us. If you want to see what 9thwave can do for you, get in touch.
The Web Development Process
We offer a full design and development service from choosing your domain name and hosting your website through to design and the final build. We do not begin a website without acquiring a full knowledge of your requirements, working to a highly efficient and effective structure. Our typical process is worked over 3 phases.
Determine your objectives
First of all we will have a number of discussions with you to gain a detailed understanding of your requirements. Discuss/determine your objectives, budget and establish an appreciation of your business, combining your ideas with our expertise. We will provide you with a quote detailing the work we will undertake for you and project timescales.
Design and development
We will then produce some graphical examples for you to look at, to provoke thoughts and further discussions. Once you are 100% happy with the designs we then build the website, the site will be available to view in a testing area throughout the whole design and development stage.
Final refinement and go live
Within the agreed timescales, we will then show you the fully working website and make any final changes if necessary. The completed site will be checked over by us and by you to ensure everything is working. The site will then be made live for the public to view.
Let's talk about your project
I worked with 9thwave on a relaunch of my photography website.
Janice worked very hard throughout the whole project dealing with a variety of different requests from myself with professionalism and her very apparent skill in all things connected to website development.
Do you want to be in charge over your website's content?
Well a Content Management System is the answer.
Our Content Management System will allow you the flexibility to update your website from a secure web-based administration area. We use MODx for most of our Content Management System's as it is more than adequate for the majority of requirements however we can also build bespoke systems if called for.
Other systems we have experience in are Wordpress, Magento and OSCommerce.
A few of the standard features include:
- Set up multiple users allowing for different access levels.
- Ability to update text, news sections, images, galleries etc.
- Search facility so users can easily find content.
- Blogs with comments, rss feeds and multiple user options.
