Located just a stone’s throw from the beautiful Bristol harbourside, eckhoMedia is an award winning website design and development agency working with a wide range of clients throughout Bristol, Somerset, Gloucestershire and across the UK and Europe.
The company began back in 2008, we 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 from our early days working out of the front room to where we are now, located in the heart of Bristol. Growing the company has been possible due to our attention to detail, determination to succeed and a passion to provide clients with great looking and functional websites.
Since starting the company, director Simon Fewkes has built a hardworking 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 strive to understand our client’s needs from start to finish, meeting face to face with all clients to introduce ourselves and to add a personal touch to all projects. Each of us have over 15 year’s experience in either development or design which ensures that we can provide our clients with a high quality and friendly service.
We pride ourselves in providing exceptional customer service whilst delivering projects with complete professionalism and perfection. We are committed to ensuring 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. This grew our business capacity and welcome Rick Lord as an additional director to the company. Rick brought with him a wealth of knowledge and experience to further enhance the services eckhoMedia offers our valued clients.
Although the company has grown over the years we remain true to the original ethics that we started out with back in 2008. These have driven the company’s success and sets us apart from our competitors.
We are particularly looking forward to 2019 as this will be our 10th birthday, we have some exciting plans, developments and improvements to look forward to and these will be announced during the course of the year.
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, professional and highly experienced team of designers, developers and consultants who know their stuff, easy to work with and get the job done.
