Attractive, Bespoke Website Design

for Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk and England

Unique Websites are a small, professional website design and development company based near Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk.

We are a small agency who take the time to be careful about ALL stages of a website's creation and also offer a good after-sales service. We NEVER outsource work. We are proud that much of our business is now coming from recommendations.

All of our websites are responsive (mobile-friendly) as part of the standard price. All sites have on-page SEO incorporated into the coding and structure of the pages as a default.

Our flexible pricing structure allows customers to choose both the complexity of design and the size of site they wish to pay for. We also offer discounts to charities and voluntary organisations.

Our Principles of Web Design

We aim to create a site that WORKS for you, rather than one that just looks attractive.

We therefore spend the extra time finding out about your business and your design preferences.

Then we discuss the options with you before we start designing.

Over the last 10 years, we have developed our own ideas as to what our customers need to make their websites WORK for them. Read on and see if you would like your site to reflect the following web design principles.

1 Get Your Key Messages Across

When visiting your website, people decide in mere seconds if you are the right company for them.

The above-the-fold content MUST therefore tell them what you can offer them AND appear attractive enough so that they stay on your site.

2 Highlight Your Strengths

We spend time with you considering what aspects of your business need to be brought out in the design.

We make words and images work together to highlight strengths.

Colour draws the eye to important points.

3 Build Trust in Your Business

Methods may include:

  • Providing examples of high-quality work already completed
  • Showing close-ups that illustrate areas of quality
  • Adding customer testimonials
  • Listing professional qualifications.

4 Call to Action

Where appropriate, we place prominent "Act Now" buttons.

This might be particularly appropriate for sales sites.

Many charities like a prominent donate button.

5 Easy to Use and Attractive

Visitors need to be able to find the information they need easily. Most of our menus are permanently visible.

Visitors are more likely to trust a business that has a modern, attractive website than one with an uncared-for, badly-designed, outdated site.

A Few Kind Words

  • Thank you very much for the work you have done to improve our website. It is a complete transformation and has been very well received by our members. They are a critical bunch.
    You have taken our brief and produced a site that meets all of the requirements we specified and done it within the timescale we agreed, at a very reasonable cost. It even has some nice features that we did not specify.

    Research Network, London

  • Thankyou for all your help ... I've had lots of referrals via the site. I'm really pleased with it. I often recommend you to others who seem to be struggling with creating websites themselves or have paid people to create one but then seem to end up doing a lot of it themselves! Your service was marvellous for me with limited technical knowledge and time. I absolutely love the look of the site as well.

    Sandra Hayes Therapy, Essex and Sufffolk

  • We found Unique Websites to be very helpful to a company that is not terribly IT literate. A truly personal service from a family business that kept us informed and involved at every stage.

  • Unique Websites are professional, extremely competitively priced and the service and end product are second to none!!

  • I think you have put together a beautiful website for my School and I am very thrilled with it; I think it looks extremely elegant and in-line with how I want my Ballet School to be portrayed.
