Located just a stones throw from the beautiful Bristol harbourside, eckhoMedia are an award winning website design and development agency working with a wide range of clients across Bristol, Somerset, Gloucestershire and across the UK including Europe.
The company began back in 2008 and was setup initially with just £300, enough to purchase some web space and advertising and begin working with clients, the business has grown over the years to where we are now located in the heart of Bristol, from our early days working out of the front room its not bad going. Growing the company has been possible due to an attention to detail, determination to succeed and a passion to provide clients with great looking and functional websites.
Since starting the company, the director Simon Fewkes has built a team of designers, developers and consultants. Each have their own unique skill set that is used on various stages of client projects. As a team, we understand our client’s needs from start to finish and meet with all clients face to face to introduce ourselves and add that personal touch to all projects. Each of us have over 15 year’s experience in either development or design and this ensures that we can provide our clients with an expert and friendly service.
We pride ourselves in providing exceptional and friendly customer service whilst delivering projects with complete professionalism, perfection and quality to ensure you get a great website you are happy with both technically and aesthetically.
During 2017 we continued to expand eckhoMedia by taking over Somerset based website design agency FineBoxMedia. As part of this process we gained more clients as well as welcoming Rick Lord as an additional director to the company bringing with him a wealth of knowledge and experience to further develop and improve the service eckhoMedia can and will offer clients.
Although the company has grown over the years and will continue to grow we have and always will keep the original ethics that we started out with back in 2008 as they have helped the company to be a success and what sets us apart from our competitors.
The first stage of any website project is a face to face discussion where we can gather together information on the purpose, goals, target audience and content required to complete the project, this allows us to determine the scope, timescales required and most importantly inform you of the cost to complete the project, once these have been determined we can develop a project plan and formal quotation.
On agreement of the quotation the second stage of the project involves designing the website infrastructure, content sitemap and the look and feel of the website, at this stage clients will be able to see the website take shape in a conceptual way before actual development takes place. We then review the design concepts and plan with the client before proceeding to the next stage.
After the design work and development plan has been reviewed and agreed actual development of the website can then begin, we will construct the website and populate with the appropriate final content required, at various stages throughout the development process previews are made available so clients can see how the project is going and start to visualise the finished project.
Once the development and testing of the website is complete and all website copy and media have been applied the website is then ready to be made live, this involves installing the website on the chosen domain name and hosting platform. As part of our 'go-live' process a detailed series of tasks are completed that ensure the website is fully completed, tested and optimised for the web.
When the website has been completed and has been deployed we continue to work with clients by providing after sales service, this usually involves providing website training to the client if they require it and any useful tips and tricks to get the best from their website. We are then able to provide support and maintenance to regularly update websites, maintain websites and provide technical support when required allowing clients to depend on us for after sales service.
We are a friendly team of designers, developers and consultants who are professional and easy to work with.
