Our websites are built with basic standard security. Having said that, the web is an ever developing beast and new security issues are coming up on a daily basis so, we do recommend you take out a website security and maintenance package with us. We can then review and update your website to keep its security in line with new developments ‘in the wild’ as well as performing scheduled back-ups. Please ask your account manager for more information.
Web Design & Development
Cascade Group offers practical and cost-effective web design and development solutions which complement and work in conjunction with our ‘offline’ print offerings. Our range of web design services not only allow for bespoke and creative websites to be built which deliver on your business objectives but also the various devices that a customer may access your site from including mobiles, tablets, laptops and desktops. We even consider your practical needs like email addresses and marketing solutions to drive traffic to your site. After all, if you have a great website you want to maximise the value you get from it and generate returns.
Design quality is at the heart of the Cascade web design service. We will take a brief from you, help you create a site map and will ask for example sites you like and don’t like to ensure our designs meet your requirements. We will then give you three homepage designs to choose from and revise or rework these until you are happy before moving to designing the required sub-pages and finally building the site.
All our sites have Google Analytics built in as standard so that you can see where your website visitors are coming from, what they do, how long they stay and where they leave your site. We can even offer consultancy services to help you improve your ‘stickiness’ and conversions.
Domain Names, Email Addresses & Hosting
We can register a suitable domain name on your behalf or use an existing domain name you have already. If you want to send email with an @youremailaddress and arrange for suitable web hosting, we can also provide you with the solution as a part of your customised website package.
Cascade offers professional copywriting services with on-site copywriters based in our Cascade Studio office on Cornhill near Bank tube station to support the provision of a complete web design package. They will ensure that your website is written in such a way that search engines recognise your site’s content as being valuable including page titles, metatags. We also offer an editing service which can take your copy and make it more web friendly.

Most Popular FAQ’s for Web Design & Development
We offer 90 days snagging support starting the day a site is approved and made live. Snagging is tweaks to existing stylesheets only (how the site looks) and any functionality problems in the unlikely event that there are any. Changes to content and changing functionality and design is chargeable at our usual rates.
Unless otherwise agreed as a part of the project price, like most web developers, we code for the latest version of all browsers and the version that came before that whilst allowing wherever possible for graceful degradation on browsers which are out of date . For all other versions, we take part in Browser-Update.org which displays a short message at the top of the screen recommending that the user upgrade. If we tried to code for every version ever issued of a browser, it would be pretty much impossible to deliver within a reasonable timeline and the cost per site would be phenomenal!
We are pretty much platform agnostic. We work on everything from bespoke php and html sites through to those built on content management system (CMS) website such as WordPress, Drupal and Joomla. We prefer WordPress as it offers a huge amount of functionality and options to clients at a reasonable price.
