We pride ourselves on delivering compelling Web Services that include modern web design. We do website design, development, hosting and maintenance. Our design and copywriting processes follow SEO guidelines, so your beautiful website is seen by your target market. Good design, affordability and customer care are our priorities.
Web design refers to the process of creating a website that looks good. It deals with the front end of the website, which is what people see when they visit it. When our website designers create a website, they ensure that the design is modern and clean, the graphics suit the branding of your company and the interface of the website is aesthetically pleasing.
Website development refers to creating the back end of a website, which you can think of as the coding of the website to make it functional and responsive. The back end of a website is not seen directly by the website visitors. However, they will immediately notice if something is wrong. We use WordPressto design and develop our websites.
Website maintenance is a process that occurs once the web design process is completed. It includes continuously checking the website for errors or mistakes that may appear over time and ensuring that all aspects of the website are up to date. Additionally, it includes making sure that the backlinks on the website are functional and updating the content on the website to keep it relevant.
Copywritingis the process of creating content, specifically text, for advertising purposes. In the case of website design, copywriting refers to the writing of the text on your website. The text is written in such a way that it communicates a specific message to your website users while also making it more likely for search engines to find the website. This is part of Search Engine Optimization.
Search Engine Optimization, or SEO, is the process of optimising a website so that it is ranked better by search engines such as Google. The better your website is ranked, the higher it will appear in the results of a search engine. With good SEO, more people will find your website. Improving SEO includes doing keyword research, writing good copy (ensuring that the text on your website is readable), adding links to other pages on your website and to other websites and ensuring that all components of the website are up to date.

Wedding Videography Client
Erwin was the videographer on our wedding day in January 2020. From the beginning through to the end, he offered us professional service. Prior to our big day, Erwin asked us what we specifically wanted him to include in the video. The end result - an amazing and compact representation of our wedding day! Nevertheless, he managed to capture moments that went completely unseen by us. We will forever be grateful and highly recommend him as your videographer as you will have a hard time finding another with so much passion and willingness to walk those extra miles for you!
Swerve Designs has offered us professional service, quality design proposals and good website hosting. Response time has been good and I can recommend them highly.

The time taken to create a website depends on a number of factors, such as:
the number of pages required
whether or not copywriting services are required (or whether you as the client provide us with all text for the website)
whether you can provide us with photographs (alternatively we can buy stock images for your website, or take photographs for you)
how quickly you provide us with the information required for your website.
If you send us all the information required for your website, the design can be completed in as little as a week.
What do you need from
me in order to create
In order to create your website, we need the following from you:
Text for your website: This text should include all information that you want on your website. Alternatively, we can write the text for you. In this case, we would need to meet with you to discuss the exact nature of your business.
Images: For your website to look professional, we require good-quality photographs. Depending on your business, these could be images of your products, photographs displaying your services, and images of your team. You can send us these photographs, or we can visit your business to take photographs. Alternatively, you can also buy stock images online. A good example of a website to find stock images is Envato Elements.
We also require the payment of a deposit before beginning to create your website.
My company is rebranding. Do I need a new website?
This depends on your current website and whether it aligns with your marketing goals and your company brand. Of course, your budget also plays a role. We believe that it is good practice to regularly update the design of your website. Why don’t you meet with us, and we can discuss whether you need a new website or whether your current website simply requires a facelift.
