Website Development Service
Focusing on optimisation we specialise in WordPress website development. No job is too big or too small for us to tackle. We ensure our builds are optimised for speed, SEO performance and look fantastic on all phones and tablets.
01/ Creator. Partner. Collaborator.
We’re agile, and able to take on the role necessary for your project. We can spearhead, support or polish your project or product at any stage.
02/ Clean – in thinking, in style.
03/ Perfection doesn’t do a 9-5.
And neither do we. We’re not bound to any time zones or tied to a desk. The project dictates where we need to be and with whom we need to collaborate. And, we always go the extra mile.
04/ Big picture, with all the detail.
We have a long history with corporate branding and identity, and can rebrand your website from the ground up.
05/ OUR tech specs.
We are well versed in creating pixel-perfect website design and UX layouts. We often work with vector graphics for illustrations and website animations. We are a massive fan of the WordPress CMS system and have a strong appreciation for open source technologies. Our main focus has always been front-end technologies like HTML5 + CSS3 and jQuery, but our passions lean toward back-end technologies like PHP and MySQL.
I earned a degree in design and communication, but after some time found coding to be my calling, loving the challenge rather than just pushing pixels. I can now take a website brief from handshake to completion, with some search-engine optimisation thrown in for good measure.
– Mark Chaskelson (Director & Founder)
We can talk geek for hours and are on a mission to get increasingly better at it. Just like bad design can fail a project, a website that clunks and breaks down can lose your business potential clients and cause endless headaches. We’re sure-footed developer, less flash and more tried technique. We are more preferential to the open-source platforms like WordPress and avoid fly-by-night closed frameworks.
We’re trained website designers, we understand the importance of appearance and layout. We’ve been privy to enough campaigns to know that a failed design means a failed project. One of our key strengths is understanding what can be turned around quickly for development, what website design choices are suited to the brief and which are simply unnecessary for the task at hand.
Digital marketing requires you know the ins and outs of design and development. There are clear cases that require tried-and-true methods to accomplish the task at hand and for these, we have methods that allow us to develop strong goal-driven marketing campaigns.

You need to be able to easily create new pages and edit them at any time. Make sure you can add images, link to product pages, set SEO elements, and archive posts in a user-friendly way to generate interest and to create assets that can be easily shared on social media.
If you’re an e-commerce brand, you know the importance of a good site. And you’re not alone: more and more companies are discovering the power of e-commerce. But making a killer site for e-commerce isn’t the usual site build. Instead, strong messaging and clear calls-to-action win out. Don’t forget lightning-speed page loads, an intuitive checkout, and a mobile responsive design.
On-site SEO (also known as on-page SEO) is the practice of optimizing elements on a website (as opposed to links elsewhere on the Internet and other external signals collectively known as “off-site SEO”) in order to improve search engine ranking and visibility. This can involve optimizing both the content and HTML source code of pages on a site.

Website Service FAQ’s
Whats the difference between UX and web design?
UX design stands for User Experience design and tends to be the invisible or “behind the scenes” side of design. It’s all the work that goes into creating a website. UX design includes design and user research, information architecture, interaction design, usability testing, and content strategy.
It’s easy to rush to designing solutions, but UX design works to focus on the user or customer to really understand their habits, needs, behaviours, motivations, and emotions. You have to deeply understand the problem and who you’re designing for in order to prototype and iterate on solutions.
Web designers may be graphic designers who work with the web or developers who have built enough skills to create a good looking website. Web designers tend not to take the human-centered approach of UX design.
Why does my website need to be maintained?
Software changes on a daily basis and with it comes new features and new threats. Keeping your WordPress website up to date ensures your website will function smoothly and be protected.
Furthermore, it is also important to maintain your business website as a website impacts how customers perceive your business. Your website must be maintained if you want to attract prospects and retain customers. Website maintenance is indispensable because it adds value to your business.
What is website development?
Web development refers to building, creating, and maintaining websites. It includes aspects such as web design, web publishing, web programming, and database management.
While the terms “web developer” and “web designer” are often used synonymously, they do not mean the same thing. Technically, a web designer only designs website interfaces using HTML and CSS. A web developer may be involved in designing a website, but may also write web scripts in languages such as PHP and ASP. Additionally, a web developer may help maintain and update a database used by a dynamic website.
What is a CMS (Content Management System)?
A content management system (CMS) is a website application that supports the creation and modification of digital content using a common user interface and thus usually supporting multiple users working in a collaborative environment, an example of this is WordPress.
WordPress CMS’s have changed the Internet by making websites dynamic and allowing people with little to no knowledge of coding to be able to update, change and create new information at any time. In the past, this could only be done by “webmasters” or “web developers” with good knowledge of web design and web development.
What e-commerce websites do you build?
We love WordPress and WooCommerce! It’s a e-commerce plugin that transforms WordPress websites into customizable eCommerce stores. First released in 2011 by WooThemes, a WordPress theme development agency with roots in Norway, the United Kingdom, and South Africa, it was later acquired by Automattic, makers of WordPress.com and Jetpack. In the UK alone, WooCommerce powers a whopping 55% of all eCommerce sites and nearly 2.3 million online stores.
What is on-site SEO?
Onsite and offsite SEO, otherwise known as on-page and off-page SEO, are the two main components of the search engine optimization (SEO) process. For maximum exposure to the search engine results and for higher rankings, you need to understand the difference between the two and how to utilize them better.
How a website looks is only one facet to a successful website. It needs to also be built with SEO in mind. So on-site SEO is the pracice of optimising your website for SEO.
What does it mean to have a scalable website?
When you build a website you do not need to invest a boatload of money into supreme hosting and hundreds of pages at launch. You can simply focus on what is needed and a server to handle the lower tier volume of traffic.
As your business and your website grow, and so does your content and traffic, you need a website that can roll with the punches. this includes:
Easy content publication
Easy media, page and post management
Easy integration of new features
A dashboard to see an overview of your growth and analytics
A server that can be easily upgraded
A way to change the look of your website without rebuilding or repopulating
Creative Monarchy covers our clients on all these points so they are confident their website can grow alongside their company.
