Do we work directly with brands, businesses and organisations?
Absolutely! With the vital caveat that we aren’t stealing you away from one of our agency clients.
Over the years we have provided web design and development services to a range of clients, from a cutting-edge fintech company, to a leading European fashion atelier to contemporary restaurants.
What we do
We specialise in the technical brief, wire-framing/UI and then building a stellar website or web application that will wow you and your customers/users.
We love using WordPress for our non-commerce clients. In a bespoke WordPress build, we can give you a CMS that is dead easy-to-use, easy to maintain (whether you continue to work with us or another developer) and with its new modular builder, it can flex and grow as your business changes.
We also bring oodles of experience in e-commerce projects and regularly use either WordPress+WooCommerce or Shopify – and we are able to design and build bespoke websites in either platform.
We love Shopify for more typical e-commerce projects (selling a widget, one at a time, to a customer). It is so easy-to-use on the back-end, is brilliantly supported and can grow with your shop as far as you need.
WordPress+WooCommerce is a our go-to when some advanced or alternative e-commerce functionality is required. Need a blended membership/subscription service? Or complex fulfilment requests? Then the deep code customisation that WooCommerce allows is ideal.
Lattimore and Friends predominantly provides web development services to leading branding studios in the UK and USA. This has given us an incredible network of designers covering every conceivable niche, and every conceivable style.
When it comes to a website project, the best analogy is of building a house. We are both the architects, sketching the technical plans to ensure the website will work, and then the engineers, building to said plans. Collaborating with one of our branding agency “friends” is akin to hiring a great interior designer; it is their job to take our sterile technical plans and make them uniquely you.
And of course, if you are looking for a full brand identity, one of our agency “friends” would love to support you with that as well.
Ongoing Support and Services
We love to build ongoing relationships with our clients and we offer a number of ways we can help your business grow and prosper online. These include:
- Hosting – we offer hosting via WPEngine, best-in-class WordPress hosting
- Maintenance – we can ensure WordPress and its plug-ins are up to date, run regular security checks and generally ensure your website is safe and well
- Speed improvements – website speed has a huge impact on SEO, as well as user experience. However this is not a “set it and forget it” task; it is an ongoing, evolving process and we can work with you on this
- SEO – your website might be the best thing since sliced bread but if no-one ever sees it, was it worth it? We can work with you on an evolving SEO and content strategy to deliver the results you are looking for
If you have a brief of RfP to discuss, we’d love to hear from you! And even if you are just looking at your options, we’re always up for a coffee and a chat.
Get in touch and let’s see if we can help you.
