No-nonsense Promise

Picture Engine website design in Huddersfield  is here to help with your website. Obviously we do all the technical stuff that every web designer should be expected to do. What we don’t do is expect you to know all about it, including all the jargon and acronyms. That’s what you pay us for, right?

  • We explain everything we’re doing in layman’s terms.
  • We give you an itemised breakdown of it all before and after.
  • We don’t do stuff we don’t think you’ll actually need.
  • If we think you DO need it, we’ll explain why and let you decide.

So what do we do?

  • Simple startup websites? Check.
  • Online shops? You betcha. Check it out.
  • Search Engine Optimisation (“getting your site higher up Google”)? Yup. Take a look.
  • Event booking websites? No problemo. Here’s a preview.
  • Embedded videos from Youtube or Vimeo? Easy!
  • Portfolios for artists, designers or photographers? Check out the Portfolio page…
  • Online Learning and training websites? Bit of a speciality, frankly. See here.
  • Hosting and Maintenance? Of course! More details here…
  • Technobabble? Not so much.
  • Complicated and opaque invoices? Not. A. Chance.

Testimonials

Andrew is highly skilful and knowledgeable, completely reliable, responsive, honest (which is rare and vital), dedicated, flexible and swift in his support. Also of importance is that he is always friendly, positive and open – which has always made me feel very comfortable about approaching him for help with my website and programmes – as well as unrelated work advice. It can take me a few times to understand certain things when it comes to tech and Andrew is unfalteringly patient with me, taking the time to break down information while checking I understand each aspect – and encouraging me to get in touch if anything remains unclear.

Dr Mine Conkbayir, Mine Conkbayir Consultancy
Early Years Hub Logo

I began working with Andrew on the design and creation of our Early Years Hub website some 3+ years ago. Andrew was able to quickly grasp the purpose and focus of our business extremely well and subsequently develop a distinct website that met our needs as an early years training and consultancy company. I would highly recommend his work, his skill as a designer but also his ability to create a website that enables brand development and more importantly customer engagement.

Rachel Buckler, Early Years Hub

Thank you to Andrew for a fantastic web design. Andrew has the ability to work with us and understand our needs which is remarkable and very professional. With attention to detail, his response to our questions and suggestions and ability to produce both the Early Years Hub and Health & Safety Solutions website to our satisfaction with a quick turn-a-round has been valuable. Andrew is approachable and has made things simple for us to understand without over complicating matters. Changes we have asked for have been done swiftly and allowed our business to progress.

We look forward to continuing our business with Andrew in the future and will recommend his services at every opportunity.

Louise Crolla, Health & Safety Solutions NW Ltd

We cannot recommend Picture Engine enough, having worked with them for over 6 years, from our initial website build to creating a full e-commerce shop which has transformed our business, Andrew and his team could not do enough for us. They are very knowledgeable and they made the whole process very straight forward. We also have continued, efficient support meaning we can just get on with the running of the business and they will deal with any web related issues for us. Reasonable rates and a fantastic service, what more can you ask for!

Where do we do it?

Picture Engine are proud to be based in Huddersfield, in the West Riding of Yorkshire, birthplace of Rugby League, former Prime Minister Harold Wilson and (if you stretch the definition to include Skelmanthorpe) the first ever female Doctor Who.

Our customer base covers the whole country though, and of course we are always looking to expand nationwide. These days (and especially during and after the Coronavirus pandemic) meeting customers in person is quite a rarity and we have often had meetings over Zoom, Skype or Messenger as well as the more old school phone call. Give us a shout and let’s see how we can help you.

How much do we charge to do it?

As you’d expect, without knowing your exact requirements that’s hard to answer – but a basic site without e-commerce can start from as little as £199. You can visit the pricing page to find out more, and if you have a clear idea of what you want you can probably work yourself out a rough price there, but if you get in touch I can usually get a more accurate estimate back to you more or less straight away.
