Every website we design is carefully crafted to enhance your customers’ experience of your brand.

Website builders or templates just don’t cut it. With our custom approach, your new WordPress website is designed from a blank canvas, with your customers needs at the heart of the process. Our aim as a leading WordPress agency is to provide your customers with an irresistible online experience that’s authentic to your vision.

When you work with us your new site will be Google optimised from the get go and results focused. We’re big believers that your website should always be evolving, so we following a “Growth-Driven” methodology, offering you various packages to help you get the most from your website on a monthly, quarterly or semi-annual basis.

We decided to ask Authentic Style to redesign our site because our previous experience of working with them was so good. Their project management system is brilliant and their responses and communications are always very quick and helpful. We’d definitely refer their great design skills, communication and all the services that they’re able to provide to others. We’re delighted with our site and look forward to working with Authentic Style in the future.”

Authentic Style’s portfolio and our initial meetings suggested they would be a perfect fit to guide us through the process of building a website and refreshing our brand. Will and the team supplied a clear and detailed plan for our project and stayed constantly in touch – this helped greatly in keeping us focussed and on schedule. We are very pleased both with the management and timescale of the project, and with the design of our website and new logo.”

Process
Step 1

Discovery

We want to know your story, your motivations and your future plans to help us build a picture of where you are and where you want to be. Listening is key here and will allow us to propose the correct solution that is going to yield the best results.

Step 2

Existing site analysis

Did you know your existing website holds the key to your future success? By analysing how people are finding and interacting with your website we have a much more rounded picture of what is and isn’t working and where there are opportunities.

Step 3

Wireframing

To be a success, your website needs to be a pleasure to use, provide value and be easy to use on all devices. We start by having a team whiteboarding session to explore how we can lay out your site and then present polished wireframes for your review.

Step 4

Creative design

Templates and off-the-shelf solutions are restrictive and will hold your brand back. With our custom approach your new website is designed from a completely blank canvas without limitation. This allows us to craft a custom look and feel true to your brand.

Step 5

Development

Once you’ve approved the designs we’ll begin integrating your website with WordPress so content and images are fully editable. We’ll also ensure your website is optimised for Google and fully tested on desktop computers, tablets and mobiles.

Step 6

Delivery & launch

Once your site has been built and the content has been added, we will fully QA it to make sure nothing has slipped through the cracks. We’ll then share a link for you to view your new website on our test server. Once approved we’ll schedule time to make it live!

Step 7

Training

We offer full training once your website is live. This usually takes 30-45 minutes and can be delivered over the phone or in person at our Dorset office. This leaves you confident that you have all the knowledge you need to edit and make changes to your new site.

Step 8

Ongoing improvements

To avoid having to redesign again in a couple of years, your website needs to evolve based on how people are using it. We always try and promote working this way with our clients, and have a range of “Growth-Driven” options available to ensure your website is always as effective as possible.

Ongoing Improvement

Get the very best from your WordPress website

We believe that once redesigned, far too many websites get left to gather dust, when in reality now is just the beginning. Once your new website is up and running, it needs to be regularly analysed to determine how your customers and visitors are using it. We call this approach Growth-Driven Design and it's a much smarter and more effective way to get the absolute best from your website with regular incremental improvements.

Avoid a vicious cycle of redesigning your website every 2-3 years.
Use data to make informed decisions about what your customers want.
Test changes to actually measure what kind of impact they have.
