We design and build hard-working websites.Want a better website?
Our website design and build services started in ’97, and since then, we’ve designed and built 100s of websites that win our clients new business online.
Whether you’re looking for a simple brochure site or a more complex corporate site, we can design and build you a site that works perfectly for your business.
We build sites that you can manage yourself
All the sites we design are built on the WordPress content management system.
We’ve been using WordPress for over 6 years to create content-managed websites where you can do much more than just edit the text content.
Our version of WordPress allows you to manage nearly every element of your site; from the text and image content to menus, contact details, your logo and social media links.
No off-the-shelf themes – our website design is 100% bespoke
We build 100% bespoke WordPress sites on our own theme. This means you get exactly what you need.
We also build custom editing and admin pages. If you’ve found yourself battling with the WYSIWYG editor in your CMS, we can fix that. The back-end editing of the site matches the front end content.
So if you’ve got a Team page, where you need a headshot, short bio and link to full profile – we build those sections into the CMS – no messing around with tables or layouts in the content editor – just a series of fields in the admin that match the content you need on the front-end.
This makes our sites incredibly intuitive and easy to use – saving you time and money.
We don’t design sites to fit a template – this means that you get design concepts and a final site that doesn’t look the same as loads of other sites.
Our creative team (nine of them) are experts in website design and create beautiful websites that are on-brand and have the all-important ‘wow’ factor.
Safe and secure
As an agency, we’ve invested in lots of premium (paid-for) plugins that we use across the sites we develop.
This means your site will be using secure, professionally developed and support plugins – not a whole load of freebies that could go out-of-date at any point and put your site at risk.
Everything in house
Everything we do at Toast is done in-house by our own website design team and site developers – we do not outsource any of the projects we work on, and nothing is done off-shore.
You’ll deal directly with the team that’s building your site, so all communication is crystal clear and all requests are dealt with in a timely manner.
You own the site
Once we’ve built your site, and our bills are paid, the site is yours. The code, the install – everything.
Unlike some agencies that might hold you over a barrel when it comes to editing or moving the site, we don’t – it’s your site.
Managing things moving forward
Some Toast clients look after every aspect of their new site – from content marketing to updating WordPress. Others have us do it – we’ve a range of maintenance and support services to work within most budgets.
If you need ad-hoc help with your site, we can cover that off too.
