Design & Development

Designing and developing a new web application, mobile app or website is an exciting step into the future for any organisation

Transforming your digital

Your new project may form an integral part of a wider digital strategy or simply be a standalone piece of work.

Whichever applies to you, it will be vital to your audience, your mission and, ultimately, your budget to get it right.

Clarity from the outset on design and development will help enormously as these are two highly inter-dependent strands on any digital product.

Where do you start?

What do your users want? What do stakeholders need?

How do brand, design, technical solution and data security all fit together?

Questions are a good place to start on any project.

There may be a lot of them and the answers are best explored together. In fact, developing a brief is often a collaborative process and one we are very happy to help with.

And all of this before a pixel has been styled or a single line of code written.

We know it can feel a little daunting.

Standalone services

OWA offers clients an end-to-end design and development solution for web application, mobile app and website creation. 

But we know big plans are built with smaller pieces so we provide standalone creative and technical services too. 

We are happy to carry out system integrations and API production alongside strategic development and technical consulting. 

User experience design and information architecture are other services we offer alongside creative design and brand identity development. We can also help you with content origination, videography and stills photography.

Behind the scenes

At the outset of every new project, OWA recommends a conversation about hosting and security and ongoing technical support.

This forms a key part of our joined-up approach to design and development.

Although these three services operate behind the scenes, they are absolutely critical to the ongoing success of every project.

Slow server performance, downtime or a data breach can have reputational, financial and legal repercussions.
