We are a web design and development company based in Caernarfon, Gwynedd. Our main business is to design professional, effective, successful websites at affordable and competitive prices.
We recognise the importance of having a website, particularly in our local area of North Wales. Whether you are a small start-up or an established company, a web presence is invaluable. It means being available 24/7 for your current clients, while also presenting the opportunity to attract new clients, and widening your prospective audience.
We have over 21 years’ experience designing and building highly successful websites for people across several different sectors.
The Majority of our new business comes from word of mouth and customer recommendations, something we’re proud of as we think it means we’re doing our job right! To view what some of our satisfied clients have to say about us, visit our testimonials page.
Our success as a web design company is largely attributable to our ability to provide a complete solution, from design to publishing and beyond. This is achieved due to our capability to perform all of the tasks associated with the development of a dynamic, modern, responsive website.
To fulfil this task we offer our clients a variety of specialist services which can include:
A responsive website is one that adapts its layout depending on the device being used. A growing number of people now use mobile devices to use the internet. With recent figures showing that more than half of all searches now start on a mobile device, it is more important than ever to ensure your website is responsive and accessible on all devices.
In addition to this, as of the 21st April 2015, Google have updated their search algorithm, so that responsive websites are ranked more favourably when searching on Google using mobile devices. More information can be found here.
Though our websites have always worked on all devices, this latest trend of responsive websites makes it easier for the user to navigate your site on their chosen device.
Because of this, all websites we have built since the introduction of this new technology have been fully responsive and all new websites we create are designed in this way from the beginning. We understand that an attractive and professional looking website is essential if you want your business to stand out, and believe this goes hand in hand with usability and customer experience.
We have different maintenance options available, including an option to update the website yourself:
If you’d like to discuss any of these options, please don’t hesitate to contact us
We are able to provide bespoke e-commerce websites that allow you to update your own products and prices; view and update orders and accept a variety of payment methods.
We also offer a bilingual shopping cart system and are one of the first in Wales to be able to provide your users with a complete Welsh language shopping experience.
Online, everyone’s “shop window” becomes the same size. This is especially useful for smaller shops, immediately changing the prospective market from a local one to a national or even global one.
We can develop bespoke databases for your specific needs, and have successfully developed systems for Estate Agents, Tourism and Events websites.

We believe that a good website is wasted if it can’t be found, therefore SEO is a very important part of what we do. It is clear that the higher your rankings on search engines, the more visitors will access your website leading to an increase in possible sales or enquiries. We perform search engine optimisation to ensure that your website is visible to potential customers, and provide you with evidence of this.
Good quality images can really set your site apart from the rest, and are an important factor in what kind of first impression your site makes on the user. We can use images you provide or choose from a large library of stock images, or alternatively we can often offer a photography service free of charge. We’ll use our experience and creative eye to present your business, organisation or holiday home in the best possible way.
All our staff at Delwedd speak Welsh fluently, meaning we can offer you the option of communicating with us in your preferred language of choice. Something we are proud of here is that we also, unlike many other web designers, offer to build a Welsh mirror side to your website absolutely free of charge. All we require from you is the content, and we can provide you with a list of recommended translators. To learn more about this offer which received support from the Welsh language board, click here.
Prices vary for each individual customer, as our costs are based upon the volume of work involved in completing a website, and which features/functionality you require. Why not contact us for a free consultation, to see if we can assist you with your new website, or to provide a makeover for your existing website?
The very first step is where you decide whether or not we’re the right team for the job. We believe the best way to get started is to get together for a chat and discuss your needs. We prefer to do this at our office in the Galeri, Caernarfon, so that you can meet the team and get a real sense of who we are and how we work; there’s a nice cup of coffee available too! But we’re also happy to discuss the project with you over the phone or meet you at another location, whatever works best for you.
It’s during this stage that you have the opportunity to tell us your wants, needs and any ideas you already have for your new website, both in terms of design and content. Don’t worry if you’re not too sure, we can put our almost 20 years’ experience to good use and offer you some guidance and direction. We’ll also tell you what we can offer and present you with a proposal.
If we’re at step two, it means you’ve accepted the proposal - great news! We’re excited to be working with you.
Following our meeting and when the questionnaire we will have provided you with is completed, we create a draft of a responsive website we think you’ll love. We incorporate your input and ideas, and create the draft to be in keeping with your brand identity, presenting you with it within the agreed upon time scale.
We hope you’re happy with it straight away, but if not we will continue to make any required amendments until the draft meets your approval.
We don’t move on to step 3 until you’re totally satisfied.
Once you’re happy with the design and we have agreed on a structure, we begin building your new responsive website. Again, we can guide you here by suggesting a structure (list of headings/pages) based on your needs, if you are unsure.
At this stage a member of our team will be assigned to you and your project, and will be working with you individually from this point on.
We are also unique at Delwedd in that there’s no limit to the number of pages you can have in your website, and there’s no extra cost to add more pages. We also offer the option of adding or removing pages once your website is live, again at no extra cost, should you feel this is necessary. We believe a good website is never finished, and should instead offer the flexibility to grow and adapt to reflect your needs.
After building the pages we optimise and add any content that you have supplied us with, and add any features/functionality that you require (e.g. online shop, database, secure areas).
Your new website is now ready to go live! We will manage this process smoothly for you.
If yours is a new website, we will work with you on deciding and securing the domain name that you want. We will set up your email accounts and assist you on configuring your mail clients (Outlook, Mac Mail etc.) to manage your emails. If you have an existing website, we will work to ensure there is no disruption to your services whilst we set your website live.
We will also provide you with an Internet Marketing strategy, and will register your new website with all major Search Engines.
We believe in the importance of keeping your website current, both for the user satisfaction, and to improve your rankings with Search Engines.
Unlike many other web designers, we encourage you to make regular changes to your website and will carry out any changes to your website content within 24 hours (Mon-Fri), at no extra charge, with no limit to the amount of changes you can make. Our priority is to make your website and your business a success.
A website is never “finished”, and we will work with you on further Search Engine Optimisation and are always ready to answer any questions you have about your Website.
