Websites as individual as our clients

Dovedale Design creates web sites as individual as our clients, their companies and organisations.

Based in Great Missenden, Buckinghamshire, we have strong links in the local community. We have delivered web sites for numerous local public and private sector organisations, including in Chesham, Amersham, Great Missenden and Aylesbury. Of course, we also work further afield.

Our simple philosophy is that web sites should be easy for visitors to use, and achieve their owners’ goals.

An overwhelming majority of web users judge a site by success in finding the information they need, or fulfilling the experience they desire. The site owner has goals, too, emphasising their brand, putting over their message and guiding users to action. Careful attention to content and navigation can achieve both ends.

Out-of-date or poorly maintained sites often reflect insufficient attention at the design stage, to the likely editing resource. Ease of use for those maintaining the web site is almost equally important. Sometimes those charged with maintaining a web site are actually afraid of it!

Web presence these days rarely starts and ends at the web site. Social media platforms offer alternative means of engaging with clients and audiences. We are great believers in managing web and social media to complement each other in a sort of ‘virtuous circle’.
