Learn more about our process below, and if you’re ready to speak to us please get in touch.

How we work



At this stage we need to find out what you like, what works in your industry and get a feel for what you want.


Initial Designs

After our web design consultation, we can go away and mock up some initial designs, being sure it’s a responsive web design.



After picking a style, we go ahead and build it. This is where we build all the functionality behind your new site.


Go Live!

At this point we’re ready to go live and share your new website with your audience. We also make sure everything is in place so you don’t lose any traffic in the migration.

Check out some Bristol web design projects.

What our clients say

Check out some of our previous work.

BGR Designs

BGR Designs weren’t happy with how their brand was being represented online, they wanted a site that not only looked great, but was easy to use.


Mercatus wanted to make the right first impression. Their existing website wasn’t doing that, so we redid their whole brand.

Pehrsson Scott

Pehrsson Scott is a garden designer located just on the outskirts of London, they’re really happy with how their website turned out, and it really stands out against their competition.

Gregory Offner

Gregory Offner is a highly respected keynote speaker, his old website wasn’t conveying his message. However his new website filled with interactive elements does exactly that.

Blanco Kitchens

Blanco approached us because not only did they want a website that looked great, they needed it to convert visitors into buyers. And it does just that!

Heatilator Fireplace Doors

Heatilator Fireplace Doors’ old website was built using a generic theme, it converted poorly. But since the redesign they’re now selling double so we managed to do a 2x increase in conversion %.

What to expect when working with us

Arken Digital is a digital agency based in Bristol, we’ve been building websites for over a decade. Serving clients in and around Bristol for that whole time. 

We are designing websites all around the world, but we love nothing more than working with local clients.

Project Start

This is where we’ll do all our research to get your web design Bristol project off to a great start.


Discovery call

At this point, we will have done our initial research, and it’s time to have a chat about what direction you’d like to go in with your web design Bristol project. Expect to see some examples of the direction we plan to go in, and this is where we can best see if we’re on the same page.

This is where we can better understand your web design project and the direction you want to go with. And get a good idea of your site’s goals, this is often overlooked.

Once we have all of that information, we can go ahead and start mocking up our designs.

You are very much a part of the design process.


Initial Bristol web design mockups

Here’s where it starts to get a little more exciting; this is where we present you our initial web design mockups before we actually go ahead and start building your site. You will have a range to choose from based on our initial conversations.

We ensure we’re mocking up everything so we can have a responsive web design Bristol. 


Web development & testing

This happens after we’ve agreed on a direction from our initial website designs, where we actually go ahead and build your new website. This is typically the longest part of a new website, actually building it, who would have thought?

Once we’ve built out the site we need to test it, our web developers put your new website through its paces to make sure we find all potential bugs.

After this, we then get the final sign off from you.



The most exciting part, now we’re ready to launch your new website. At this point, we will be giving you and your team training on how to use the site so you can update it in the future. We are happy to do this for you, but we don’t want you to feel trapped with us forever having to update your site.

We also have a 60-bug fix, so any bugs or changes you want to make within 60 days of launching your site, we fix them with absolutely no cost. 

You’re never going to be left stranded with our Bristol website design service.


Project End & reflection

We are constantly reviewing our work, at every stage. But it’s important to point out why we do this, we do it to better our service and serve you better. Not every campaign works in every industry and some work better than others.

We as a team are always looking for improvement, and without review, this doesn’t happen.

Arken are always here to help if you need ongoing support, so you don’t have to worry about being left out in the cold!

Does it make sense to chat?


It depends on the site, smaller sites tend to be cheaper than larger sites. Get in touch and we can give you a rough estimate pretty quickly, but all sites are different so it’s difficult to give a one size fits all price.

Assuming it isn’t a large site, usually the whole process for web design takes between 3-6 weeks from our initial conversations to a finished product.

This depends on the complexity of the project.

We are search engine optimisation (SEO specialists). So the on-page will all be sorted out of the box, however for ongoing plans you should look at our dedicated SEO services pages, for local and eCommerce.

Our websites are built for search engines, but there is a lot that goes into ranking on the biggest search engines, at least in competitive spaces.

For the website there are no ongoing costs, you will need to sort hosting and we can help you with that.

There is potentially ongoing costs if you’d like us to also get involved in your digital marketing efforts.

We do however not offer social media marketing services. We are an SEO first digital marketing agency.

We build most of our sites on WordPress, however if you’re looking for an eCommerce site we do use Shopify.

Yes we can get in touch to see how we can help. Get in touch to see our latest web design portfolio, including our branding work.

We do offer a dedicated logo design service if that is all you need. 

100%, we only build fully responsive websites. Over 68% of all web traffic was from a mobile device last year, with this number only going up it’s vital to build sites that work on all devices.

Check out our website portfolio above, you’ll see they’re user friendly and work across all devices.

Typically we take 30% upfront, and then 30% once the first draft is done and the remaining when the site is live. However, we can be flexible.

A lot depends on the project size, if this is a small Bristol web design project we can be flexible.

Absolutely, so included in every website is the training needed to get you or your team up to speed on how to edit the site down the road.

Don’t worry with our training you don’t need to be web designers to make changes.

Failing that, you can just get us to do it. We aren’t going to charge you an arm and a leg!

If you’re serious about growing your business, then yes you absolutely need a website. The last couple of years has shown us more than ever that digital is the way forward, so if you don’t have a website yet, don’t leave it too late.

If you already have a website, do you need a new website? There are websites and then there are high performing websites that are an asset to your business. Which do you want?

Yes we can sort the content for your new website for you. Get in touch to find out how we can do that for you.
