Bespoke Websites Designed

Bespoke websites made in-house by a small website development studio in Barnard Castle using Webflow and Relume development platforms.

Bespoke websites are custom-designed websites that are tailored to the specific needs and preferences of a business or organisation. They are typically more expensive than pre-made or template-based websites but offer a higher level of customisation and a unique design that is tailored to the specific needs of the client.

There are several key benefits to using a bespoke website design:

Customisation: Bespoke websites are designed specifically for your business or organisation, allowing you to choose the layout, features, and functionality that are most important to you.

Unique design: With a bespoke website, you can create a unique and visually appealing design that sets you apart from your competitors.

Improved functionality: A bespoke website can be designed to meet the specific needs of your business or organisation, including custom features and functionality that are not available with pre-made or template-based websites.

Better user experience: A well-designed bespoke website can provide a better user experience for your visitors, which can lead to increased engagement and conversions.

If you are considering a bespoke website design, it is important to work with a skilled and experienced website developer to ensure that your website is of high quality and meets your specific needs.

Bespoke Website Development

High quality websites, professionally tailormade for your business. Our websites and hosting accounts are made to be scalable for future expansion using Webflow.

Bespoke website development refers to the process of creating a custom-designed website that is tailored to the specific needs and preferences of a business or organisation. This typically involves working with a web design agency or developer to design and build a website from scratch, rather than using a pre-made template or platform.

The process of bespoke website development typically includes the following steps:

1.  Planning: During the planning phase, the web designer will work with you to understand your business goals, target audience, and the specific features and functionality that you need for your website.

2.  Design: The next step is to create a design for your website, including layout, colour scheme, and overall aesthetic. This may involve creating mock-ups or wireframes to visualise the look and feel of the website.

3.  Development: Once the design has been approved, the web designer will begin building the website using Webflow. This may involve integrating custom features or functionality, such as e-commerce or custom forms.

4.  Testing: Before the website is launched, it is important to thoroughly test it to ensure that it is functional and user-friendly. This may involve testing on different devices and browsers to ensure compatibility.

5.  Launch: Once the website is fully developed and tested, it is ready to be launched and made live for the public to access.

Overall, bespoke website development is a complex process that requires a high level of skill and expertise. It is important to work with a reputable and experienced web design agency or developer to ensure that your website is of high quality and meets your specific needs.

Domain Names, Hosting and Security Certificates

Fast and reliable AWS website hosting, domain names and SSL security certificates including a full customer care service. 

A domain name is a unique web address that is used to identify and locate a website on the internet. For example, the domain name for Google is "google.com." A domain name is an important part of a website's online identity, and it is often one of the first things that a user will see when visiting a website. 

Hosting refers to the process of storing a website's files and data on a server that is connected to the internet. When a user visits a website, their computer or device connects to the server where the website is hosted and retrieves the necessary files to display the website. 

A security certificate, also known as an SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) certificate, is a digital certificate that is used to secure the connection between a user's computer and a website. SSL certificates are used to encrypt data that is transmitted between a user's computer and a website, making it more difficult for hackers to intercept or steal sensitive information. 

These three elements - domain names, hosting, and security certificates - are all important components of a website. In order to have a fully functional and secure website, you will need to purchase a domain name, arrange for hosting, and install an SSL certificate. We are able to manage all of this for you.

CMS (Content Management Systems)

I can help your business take full control over your new website, allowing you to easily update it and add any new content yourselves.

A comprehensive website maintenance service can also be provided.


A content management system (CMS) is a software application that is used to create, edit, and publish digital content on a website. It provides a user-friendly interface that allows non-technical users to easily add, edit, and manage content on a website without the need for coding knowledge.

Some common features of a CMS include:

WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editor: This allows users to format and style text and images using a visual interface, rather than having to write HTML or CSS code.

Media library: This is a place to store and manage images, videos, and other multimedia files that can be used on the website.

User roles and permissions: A CMS can allow multiple users to access to the system, with some users having the ability to create and publish content, and others only having access to view or edit content.

Plugins or extensions: These are additional features that can be added to a CMS to extend its functionality, such as contact forms, e-commerce tools, or social media integration.

I use the Webflow CMS system. The CMS can be used to create a wide range of websites, from simple blogs to e-commerce platforms.

Website Maintenance Service

Pennine Website Development can manage your website for you and keep it updated with all of your latest information from your email instructions. (Alternatively, a bespoke system to allow you to edit the website yourselves is possible).

Website maintenance is the process of regularly updating and maintaining a website to ensure that it is functioning properly and providing a good user experience. This can include tasks such as updating content, fixing broken links, addressing technical issues, and ensuring that the website is secure and up to date.

There are several reasons why website maintenance is important:

Keeps the website fresh and relevant: By regularly updating content and features, a website can remain engaging and relevant to its users.

Fixes technical issues: Website maintenance can help identify and fix technical issues that can affect the performance and usability of the website.

Enhances security: Website  maintenance can help protect a website from security vulnerabilities and prevent hacking or malware attacks.

Improves search engine rankings: By regularly updating and optimising a website's content and structure, it can improve its ranking in search engine results.

There are several options for website maintenance, including doing it yourself, hiring a web developer or design agency, or using a website maintenance service. A website maintenance service is a company that provides regular website maintenance and updates as a subscription-based service. This can be a cost-effective option for businesses or organisations that do not have the time or resources to maintain their website in-house.

Websites with Collection Lists

Pennine Website Development can provide websites with databases included, for example for product catalogues or to easily manage document libraries.

Websites with collection lists are websites that display a list of items that belong to a particular category or theme. Collection lists are often used to showcase products, services, or other items that are available for purchase or consumption.

There are several types of collection lists that can be used on a website:

Product lists: These are lists of products that are available for purchase on an e-commerce website. Product lists typically include information such as the product name, price, and a brief description.

Service lists: These are lists of services that a business or organisation offers. Service lists may include information such as the service name, a description of the service, and the price.

Event lists: These are lists of events that are scheduled to take place, such as concerts, festivals, or conferences. Event lists may include information such as the event name, date, location, and ticket price.

Article lists: These are lists of articles or blog posts that are organised by topic or theme. Article lists may include a brief summary of each article, as well as the author's name and the date it was published.

Collection lists can be displayed on a website in a variety of formats, such as a grid of items, a list with images and text, or a table with columns and rows. They can also be filtered or sorted by various criteria, such as price or date, to help users find the items that they are interested in.

Search Engine Optimisation and Link Building

I can offer professional Search Engine Optimisation as required to boost your search engine listing. A link building service is also available to promote your website across the Internet.

Search engine optimisation (SEO) is the process of improving the visibility and ranking of a website in search engine results pages (SERPs). The goal of SEO is to increase the quantity and quality of organic traffic to a website by making it more visible and relevant to search engines.

There are several key elements to SEO, including:

On-page optimisation: This involves optimising the content and structure of a website to make it more search engine friendly. This can include optimising the title and meta tags, using header tags, and ensuring that the website is mobile-friendly.

Keyword research: This involves identifying the keywords and phrases that are relevant to a website's content and are commonly used by searchers. By targeting these keywords in the website's content and meta tags, it can improve the website's ranking for those terms.

Content creation: Creating high-quality, relevant, and informative content can help a website rank higher in search results. This content should be targeted towards the keywords that have been identified through keyword research.

Link building: Link building is the process of acquiring backlinks (links from other websites to a website) to improve the website's ranking in search results. Backlinks are seen as a vote of confidence by search engines and can help to improve the authority and credibility of a website.

Overall, SEO is an important aspect of digital marketing, as it can help to improve the visibility and ranking of a website in search engine results and drive more organic traffic to the website. Link building is one of the key strategies used in SEO to improve a website's ranking in search results.

Mobile Ready and Fluid Responsive

Websites will adapt to different screen sizes from a smartphone up to tablet, laptop and desktop sized devices. 

Mobile-ready and fluid responsive websites are designed to adapt to different screen sizes and devices. This means that the website will adjust its layout and appearance to provide an optimal user experience on devices such as smartphones, tablets, and laptops. 

Mobile-ready websites are designed specifically for mobile devices and are optimised for smaller screen sizes. They may have a separate mobile version of the website that is designed specifically for mobile devices, or they may use responsive design techniques to adjust the layout and appearance of the website to fit different screen sizes. 

Fluid responsive websites use responsive design techniques to adjust the layout of the website to fit a wide range of screen sizes and devices. This allows the website to be viewed on any device, regardless of its screen size or resolution. 

Having a mobile-ready fluid responsive website is important because it allows users to access and navigate the website on any device, providing abetter user experience and increasing the website's reach. It is also important for search engine optimisation, as search engines give preference to websites that are mobile-friendly in their search results.

Business Email Accounts

Microsoft 365 email accounts such as name@businessname.com

A business email account is an email account that is used for professional communication by a business or organisation. Business email accounts typically use the domain name of the business as part of the email address, such as john@mycompany.com.

There are several benefits to using a business email account:

Professional appearance: A  business email account can give a more professional appearance to a business or organisation, as it uses the company's domain name rather than a personal email address.

Increased credibility: A business email account can increase the credibility of a business or organisation, as it shows that the company is serious about its online presence and communication.

Customisation options: Business email accounts often offer a variety of customisation options, such as custom email signatures and branded templates, which can help to improve the professional appearance of the emails.

Enhanced security: Business email accounts often come with enhanced security features, such as spam filters and virus protection, to help protect against cyber threats and protect sensitive information.

It is important to choose a reliable and secure email provider to ensure that business communications are protected and delivered reliably.

Graphics for Your Website

I can work from your business branding or provide: Logos, Graphics, Basic Photography, Business Cards, Stock Photography etc.

Graphics are visual elements that are used on a website to enhance its appearance and convey information. They can include images, videos, infographics, and other types of visual media.

There are several types of graphics that are commonly used on websites, including:

Images: These can include photographs, illustrations, and graphics that are used to add visual interest and convey information.

Videos: These can include short clips, animations, or full-length videos that are used to add visual interest and engage users.

Infographics: These are visual representations of data or information that are used to make complex concepts easier to understand.

Charts and graphs: These are visual representations of data that are used to illustrate trends, patterns, and relationships.

Using graphics on a website can help to make it more visually appealing and engaging and can also help to convey information more effectively.

It is important to choose high-quality graphics that are relevant to the content of the website and are optimised for the web to ensure that they load quickly and look good on a variety of devices.

AWS (Amazon Web Services) Hosting

Website hosting with very fast load times and high reliability.

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a cloud computing platform that provides a range of services for hosting websites and applications. AWS offers a variety of hosting options, including shared hosting, virtual private servers, and dedicated servers, as well as options for hosting static websites, dynamic websites, and applications.

Some benefits of using AWS for hosting include:

Overall, AWS is a popular and reliable hosting solution for businesses and organisations of all sizes, and offers a range of options to meet the specific needs of different types of websites and applications.

Webflow and Relume - a modern website development system.

Webflow is a platform for designing and developing websites.
