Responsive WordPress web design, branding, and flyer design for refugee agency Restore UK

We love working for clients like Restore UK. They do such an important job and it's an honour to be able to help them. (We've rebranded them, designed and printed flyers for them, and latterly designed and built a fully responsive wordpress website design for them) But it's fair to say that many smaller charities like Restore UK may not have the in-house expertise and knowledge required to maintain a website. That's where we come in.

As web designers Birmingham (i.e. based in Birmingham but working nationwide), whenever we build a website, we only consider the job complete once the client has the know-how to manage the website themselves. That's why all of our website design quotes include comprehensive WordPress training.

We also give the client a full, free, months' worth of tech support after the site goes live. That's help with anything from 'I've forgotten how to make a link open in a new page, to more technical know-how. We're web designers Birmingham with a passion not only for good design, but for happy clients.

So if you're at all tech-phobic, or are worried about how complicated it is to manage your own website, speak to us. WordPress is one of the easiest content-managed website systems to learn, (and the most popular content-management system, and the fastest growing CMS for the 5th year running...) and any WordPress website design we produce, we make absolutely sure the client knows what they're doing before we let them get on with it.

WordPress' ease of use is just one of the many reasons why we generally favour WordPress over other open-source systems out there, like Joomla and Drupal. (Here are some other reasons – the numbers speak for themselves: 140 million downloads for WordPress, compared to 30 million for Joomla and 15 million for Drupal; 27,000 free plugins compared to 7,000 for Joomla.)

And we've trained an awful lot of people in the use of WordPress over the years. Plus we work with it ourselves on a daily basis, so we're really very much at home with the system.

Web designers Birmingham (or anywhere else) for the tech-phobic

So if you're looking for web designers Birmingham and you've got a website redesign/build-from-scratch job you'd like someone to look at, but you're a bit worried about how you'll learn to manage the website yourself, we're the design agancy for you. Give us a call. We'll put you at ease. Web designers Birmingham are us!
