Web Design Sheffield
We provide high-end bespoke web design with a focus on improving search engine visibility to help grow businesses in Sheffield and beyond. We’ll use the same methods that helped you find our site, to bring people to yours.
What We Offer
More than just web designers.
All our websites start with defining your business and presenting a strategy to increase traffic and/or sales. Extensive research into your industry and competition will highlight the most lucrative ways of bringing the right customers to your site, this is used to direct every aspect of design and the way you present your business. It’s fundamental to every project we work on.
Branding is much more than just a logo and aesthetics. It’s the foundation of the business image and the way it’s presented to your customers. Good branding is critical in creating a sense of trust, credibility and authority. We believe that strong branding should lead website design.
Our content strategy not only drives the tone, messaging and structure of your website, it helps communicate authority and expertise to search engines, arguably the single biggest ranking factor today. With your guidance, we’ll create high-quality branded copy that is optimised for SEO and engages your target audience. Once we have a content strategy in place, we can then implement the visual design.
We’re confident in our ability to design a website that you’ll love. That’s why we offer unlimited concepts and revisions throughout the design process. We’ll work with you until you’re completely happy with the visuals. We’ve operated in this way for the last ten years and feel it’s fundamental to you having full confidence in us.
Writing concise code for a bespoke website is critical to loading speed, user experience, search ranking performance and getting clicks in your online advertising. It’s the foundation of the success of a website that drives sales and marketing.
Edge Studio Collaborative
We don’t operate like an agency
We’re a team of specialists from Sheffield that are setup with the sole focus on fulfilling two fundamental goals:
Web Design Sheffield
Why combine search engine strategy & web design?
When it comes to getting found online, your search engine ranking is everything. For example, 98% of this website’s visits come from searches on google.co.uk – our business fundamentally exists because our website is purposely designed and developed to rank highly in web searches, it’s currently in 1st position for all its targeted keywords. And, because of this our business have thrived and we don’t need to pay for any other form of marketing or advertising.
We fundamentally believe that search optimisation and marketing strategy must be carefully considered at all stages of design and development and it’s not something that can be applied successfully as an after-thought.

Why Choose A Small Team Setup?
Despite being located in Sheffield we strongly believe the future of web design is not with area specific design agencies. Remote working has enable us to build a team with more experience and expertise. We wrote an article exploring the three main web design options; freelance, team collaboration and agencies.

Client Case Studies
It can be daunting trusting the promises of web design companies or agencies. We don’t feel we have anything to hide so have created several detailed case studies to walk you through a range of typical projects from start to finish.
It can be daunting trusting the promises of web design companies or agencies. That’s why we don’t ask you to take our word for it. Instead, we offer in-depth case studies that walk you through real projects, from initial concept to successful launch.
If you’d like us to talk you through a past project our designer Andrew is happy to share live examples on a video call, tailored to your industry or specific needs.

Search Engine Optimisation
It’s a misconception that a newly built website will immediately start bringing in traffic through services like Google. The harsh reality is that a new website often won’t have any visits for the first 1-2 years unless it has been specifically optimised or targets achievable and popular search terms.
Websites that rank well are designed and developed this way from the beginning, with woven into every aspect of their design, content and structure. SEO companies rarely focus on web design but it’s something we’ve seen that is critical in helping our clients grow their businesses and online presence.
We believe that reliability is key to long term relationships with our clients. Smaller operations sometimes come with a stereotype of being unreliable or over-promising. At the start of every project you will receive a bespoke proposal outlining what we will deliver and when it will be complete. We only quote for projects when we have capacity to give it our full attention.
Rebecca, our general manager, will communicate deadlines and promptly request information when it’s needed. We feel this is key to providing a smooth and efficient service.
We pride ourselves in being transparent, approachable and available. Trust and reliability are key to our business, and this is reflected by the repeat custom we continue to receive from large organisations.
The right expert of every aspect of your project.About Us
2 x Web/UI Designers
Most projects are worked on by two designers with slightly different expertise. UI Designers are not just responsible for the look and feel of a website but how users interact with content and journey through its pages. All our design implements WCAG AA accessibility and focuses on displaying content with minimal clicks and mouse movement.
1 x Brand Designer
Creating premium branding for businesses is a very specialist role and something we don’t use web designers for. Online branding is the foundation of all exceptional websites. We’re used to working with brand-guidelines if your business already has these in place.
5 x Developers
We have a team of five talented developers that have honed their efficiency working together over the last five years. Development is critical to every high-functioning site that loads quickly. Google looks at loading speed as one of its significant ranking factors, our development team writes custom, modern and concise code specifically for this requirement.
1 x Marketing Specialist
We have a full-time specialist able to offer a range of digital marketing services, including pay-per-click (PPC) advertising on Google and various social media channels.
1 x Copywriter
Good content is written for the reader, but great content will also speak directly to search engines to help boost your ranking. Our copywriter creates on-brand content that ticks both boxes.
1 x Videographer
Depending on the nature of your business, videos can be a valuable asset to your online presence. If you use videos, it’s fundamental that they’re high quality and tied into your business’s branding.
Sheffield Based Setup
Who We Are
We’re a select team of specialists who work independently under the Edge Studio Collaboration Ltd. The team is formed around providing you with the best expertise and breath of service. We’ve worked tis way since 2014 forming strong friendships and benefit mutually from collaborating together.
One of the key benefits of being a small select group is that you have direct contact with the individuals working on your project. We meet as a collective group at the beginning of the project and then manage each phase individually. This cuts down miscommunication issues as you speak directly to the experts. The business isn’t run as an agency with large overheads so pricing is based on the direct costs of the specialists you need for your project. We can price ourselves competitively, generally charging much less than other comparable larger design businesses and agencies.
Our unique approach has helped us successfully foster long-term relationships with large organisations who demand the highest level of service such as The University of Sheffield, Citizens Advice Bureau, Sheffield City Council and NHS Sheffield.

Answers to regular questions we get asked.
How much does a website cost?
We quote specifically depending on your requirements and what is needed to get people to your site. This requires research and a strategy. As a guide to our pricing full projects with an SEO focus start at around £5,000, simple redesigns from £3,500.
Why are your websites different?
Using clever technology and our expertise, we assess your business’s online potential. By predicting website traffic and conversion rates, we pinpoint the optimal structure, layout, content, and design for your website. This data-driven approach ensures each project unlocks its full potential and helps your business to grow.
Will a website bring in new business?
Unfortunately, simply launching a new website won’t instantly expose your business to the world. A website needs a targeted approach, whether this is improved visibility in search engines, PPC or social media. We find and apply the most lucrative ways to grow your business.
Websites can be built cheaply. Why do these sites cost more?
It takes time to properly understand your business and develop a plan to reach its potential. Good design can’t be rushed, we don’t just offer the first thing we design, we create multiple concepts and adaptations. This is key to a website that enhances credibility and professionalism. We don’t speed up development by using templates, every site we build is completely custom and unique.
Do you offer a PPC or development only service?
We’re happy to assist you through any phase of creating your website. This can include any of these components; strategy, content creation, marketing, design, development and SEO.
Do you offer discount for charities?
We love working with not-for-profit charities and ethical organisations. We offer half price web design and development services for registered charities. Get in contact for more info.
How do I know you can improve my SEO?
If you’re getting help from an SEO business, a good way to tell if they’re worth their salt is to look at how well their own website ranks. If they can’t get their own site to perform, they’ll likely struggle to do the same for you. We’ll use the same methods that helped you find our site, to bring people to yours.
Can I make changes to the sites myself?
None technical staff should be able to edit every key aspect of a website efficiently without out the fear of breaking it. Our sites will be custom built specifically for you and/or your staff providing full control of whatever you need.
Can we meet in person in Sheffield?
We generally work independently from our own office but have meeting space at our registered address at The Circle in Sheffield. If you’d prefer not to have video calls we can meet you in person.
