WE MAKE WEBSITES
You're looking for a web design company, we're a web design company, it's a match made in heaven. Okay, so choosing a company to design, build, maintain and/or promote your site is not that easy. What makes us different?
For starters we've been running our own commercial websites since 2002. This gives us a unique insight into the needs, demands and challenges of running an online business today. We've learnt the hard way, by doing it ourselves.
We've also hired web design companies ourselves in the past, we've been in your shoes, we know the pitfalls. We love design but we won't put design above usability. We know the importance of speed, simplicity, ease of use and ensuring your site works just as brilliantly regardless of the browser or device it's being viewed on.
Nobody knows your business like you do. We recognise that. Whilst we have lots of experience running our own websites for profit and can give lots of helpful advice, we don't assume we know best.
We design sites to meet your requirements, not to win awards for ourselves. We won't compromise your business for the sake of our own egos.
We're competitive on price and we think our charges are fair for the standard of our work. We'll be honest with you about costs - if your budget is not sufficient for what you would like to achieve we'll tell you and get creative to see if there's another way to achieve something similar at much lower costs.
Grand Adventures Ltd began life in 1998 when our CEO moved into software consultancy, helping design computer systems for insurance companies. Bored with insurance, in 2002 he bought a book on how to build websites and created his first site promoting products of interest to men (not as sleezy as it sounds).
Next, the empire grows
As the years wore on the web empire grew with the addition of more sites including two ecommerce sites built bespoke by us and controlled from our own web-based content management system. Then a new challenge presents itself, smartphones. Mobile traffic quickly grows so work begins on making our sites mobile friendly.
Love for design grows
After several years of creating and running our own sites for profit we realise that not only are we really good at making websites, we really enjoy it and we think lots of companies could benefit from our experience, so we decide to diversify into the world of web design and embark on another grand adventure.
That's the story so far
Steve or "brains" as we call him, is the genius behind everything we do (sorry, he wrote this bit).
Friendly and affable, he's a rare mix of techy geek who can converse with 'normal' people, providing us with a link to the outside world.
No, not Stevie G, the Liverpool and England midfielder, this is our head developer and guru of all things technical.
Has been known to learn whole new programming languages just to solve one problem.
Say hello to Michelle, the glue that keeps the whole operation together, motivated and happy.
Michelle is a people person with an attitude so positive that it can, at times, be annoying.
