Website Design and Development

We develop outstanding websites for businesses, educational institutions and individuals. Designed and built in-house, our websites engage audiences, get results and work perfectly across devices. We create unique, user-friendly sites including e-commerce solutions that are on-brand and discoverable.

Web Design

Our website design and development team creates visual mockups throughout the design process to ensure that we are delivering the best possible solution for you, that respects your customers and gives them the experience they want.

A well-designed platform enhances your brand, garnering attention from potential customers as well as loyalty from existing ones. Our mockups are vigorously reviewed in-house to address anything that may have been missed or for further creative solutions. The level of attention and detail we put into each design can become a time-consuming task, but the end result is always worth it.

Fully Bespoke CMS

Here at Hive, we pride ourselves in producing our own Content Management System.

A Content Management System (CMS) is made up of two things; firstly a content management application (CMA) which allows you to securely log into the website and change the front-end content freely. And secondly, a content delivery application (CDA) – this is the behind-the-scenes processing framework that we produced to store the content and makes it visible to your visitors.

Because we’ve been producing successful CMS solutions for so long, we know there’s a fine line between creating an overly complicated CMS that gives you too much flexibility, or a restrictive CMS that doesn’t offer enough flexibility. We get this balance exactly right for you.

Why should you have a bespoke CMS?

Have control of your content, simply at the touch of a button.

Be confident in your long-lasting web solution.

WordPress and Other Platforms

Our versatile website design and development team is experienced with other platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, Magento and Shopify. Today, most web platforms tend to focus on a specific use – like Magento and eCommerce – our team is dedicated to finding the most suitable platform for your project.

Whether you are a local, moderate, or national sized business our team is here to maximize your customer engagement and online sales.

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) that Attracts Leads

Did you know that only 0.78% of Google searchers click on results from the 2nd page? Ranking on the first page of Google makes a direct correlation with your businesses success. We optimize every webpage to effectively drive high-quality traffic (and eyeballs) to your website, through organic search engine results.
