What we do

Website Design & E-Commerce

Establish or improve your online presence. We design and build beautiful, responsive websites as a key asset in digital marketing activity. Our entirely bespoke designs and user-friendly CraftCMS builds result in websites customers love, and clients love to maintain.

Specification & Due Diligence

Maximise the potential of your online business idea by introducing additional experience to your team in the planning phase. Our specification and due diligence consulting and reporting process helps you identify and address important issues affecting delivery and sustainability of your project and online business.

Prototyping & Product Demos

Plan complex websites and mobile applications with minimal cost and lead-time. If you're developing a new software idea, use interactive prototypes with a finished-look to encourage investment, identify problems, plan and delegate design and development tasks, and sell your solution well ahead of launch. Our product demo videos with professional voice-overs are great tools for sales and social media campaigns.

User Experience (UX) Design

Develop a user interface optimised for the needs of your users and context of your products. Our approach to UI design for websites, interactive media and web applications puts the user first when considering hierarchy, content, aesthetics and functionality. We help you plan sites that are easy to maintain and a joy to navigate.

Responsive Website Development

Implement your website with an efficient and user friendly content management system. We build with Craft, an open-source CMS, which allows us to build an entirely bespoke website front end that charms customers, powered by a back end that’s easy to maintain.

E-Commerce & Shopify Development

Start selling your products online, or improve your customers’ shopping experience. We’ve developed bespoke e-commerce solutions for FMCGs, booking and payment systems for training companies and unique Shopify stores for luxury goods. Talk to us about the best platform for your online sales strategy.

Hosting & Technical Support

Deploy cost-effective cloud-hosting, instantly compatible with your business needs and our website technologies. We can also configure and manage your domains, email hosting, SSL security, content delivery networks and backup services.

“The Makermet team, led by Alex Traska, developed a good understanding of our organisational objectives for the site and have completely transformed our website. They were equally dedicated to developing a creative site with user-centred personas as a focus. We hope the new website proves a successful platform for a more integrated experience for users. And the architecture and design allows Nottingham UNESCO City of Literature to develop exciting new ways to communicate with our many audiences in the future.”

William Hannah
Notebooks

William Hannah approached Makermet with prototypes of their luxury, Italian leather and hand-made notebooks. Our team helped shape the final product, and set to work developing an identity system for print, packaging, product and digital purposes.

We then helped William Hannah bring their product to market by building their mobile-friendly e-commerce store on the Shopify platform, including unique and specially designed tools allowing buyers to build their own bespoke notebooks! Pop over to their site and have a go!...
