Follyfox Website Design London

Beautiful bespoke websites. With you in mind.




Philosophy

Simplicity is the final achievement.. It is simplicity that emerges as the crowning reward of art..

Penned by Frederic Chopin. Duly noted by Follyfox. Indeed, working together to plan, design, build and then manage your website requires strategic and creative thinking, imagination in abundance, clear objectives and a practical, extremely logical approach. It can and will make all the difference to your business or project.

Philosophy on Website Design London by Follyfox Design

its not what. its how.

Sound familiar? These days its pretty easy to grab a template, follow the instructions and ‘quick-fix’ your need to ‘exist’ on the world wide web. Planning, designing and creating a website that actually ‘works’ for you, that enables your goals, that you can take ownership for and be proud of.. well.. that is another kind of website altogether.

lost in function

With an awesome array of fancy doo daa’s and somersaulting gizmos at our fingertips it’s really easy to get lost in the function void and lose track of what it’s all about. Back step. Why do we need a website? Essentially? It is a communication tool. A brilliant and empowering way of bringing the world closer to you and what you want to say. Even so, structural ‘function’ is the foundation, or architecture, of your website. It must be 100% trustworthy and maintained consistently to keep it just so.

being brilliant is easy

A client wrote recently: “I love my website! Sometimes I just browse for no reason. I feel happy”. Have you noticed we humans are really good at taking care of the people and things we love? A successful website is a loved website. Making your website easy to ‘love’, easy to manage, easy to keep fresh, alive and meaningful starts with understanding you and your personal challenges, goals, routines, how you and your colleagues work together as a team and, equally, how you interact with your customer.

the art of simplicity

Frederic Chopin said: “Simplicity is the final achievement. After one has played a vast quantity of notes and more notes, it is simplicity that emerges as the crowning reward of art.” Indeed, ‘simple’ is just so.. so pleasant. Finding the ‘simple’, but dynamic, formula that truly represents your brand, supports your business activity now and enables your future business growth, is an art in itself. Herein lies the exquisite challenge.

Testimonials

WEBMASTER

Post launch is when all our planning and hard work comes into play, however, really successful websites don’t stop there. Generating relevant traffic, maintaining software and keeping your site fresh and up-to-date is an ongoing discipline.

Search Engine Optimisation

As an extension to the basic SEO we have already embedded, we often work with clients on an ongoing basis. Our aim is to realise the potential of your specific ‘call to action’ opportunities.

Content Writing Blogging

In web design, a sentence, paragraph or blog-like copy is more than just ‘words’. Relevant, compelling and search engine friendly content invites the right audience to visit your website.

Redesign & Development

As you and your business grow so must your website keep changing to keep pace, on-brand and still speaking to the right audience.

Software Management

Keeping your security software updated is not the only task here. Sometimes software becomes incompatible or no longer the best tool for the job.

Prices vary depending on your requirements.

About

Follyfox Design is focused on retrieving the true value of ‘bespoke’ and the personal engagement between client and designer. It is possible for everyone, on any budget, to have a beautifully designed, easy to manage, useful website.

I am equally creative as I am social and mathematical so making websites presses ALL my buttons – communication, branding, coding, strategy, detail.. to name but a few.

Follyfox Design began 6 years ago making websites for friends. I went on to design websites for entrepeneurs and small businesses, then, by bringing together expertise, larger businesses and global networks.

I really enjoy working together with my clients. I love making websites.
