Urchin Design has a small team of experienced designers, WordPress and PHP developers. PHP is the programming language used to build WordPress. Through our experience we believe that WordPress is the perfect platform to develop your website. WordPress offers an affordable, fast turnaround time with an easy to use admin dashboard.

WordPress is a powerful solution suitable for most websites. Unfortunately, due to its ease of use, nearly anyone can create a reasonable website if they take the time to learn the tools. However, to turn a reasonable website into a great website, requires skill and knowledge beyond what you can learn from YouTube.
At Urchin Design we've built websites from scratch, learnt the hard way and concentrated on the technical side of website development. With 20 years experience we know what it takes to make your website unique and stand out above your competitors. Through our expertise we ensure your website is unique and meets your and your potential clients' needs.
Design is not just about how it looks but how your potential clients experience your brand.
At Urchin Design we believe that WordPress is not just about installing themes, demos and plugins into WordPress. All too often this is what many "WordPress Developers" are doing. While it is more cost effective to use a plugin we believe in carefully selecting only the minimum of what is necessary. Don't destroy your website with bloated unecessary plugins. Don't let unnecessary plugins slow down your website and get penalised by Google, causing bad search results.
Should you need a custom developed plugin we can help with that. No need to install something that does 10 x what you need when you can have a solution that fits your exact requirements.
Page load speed is an important part of any website’s user experience. Often your designer has implemented new trendy functionality or large images to your site. Unfortunately, your potential leads tend to care more about speed than all these trendy features and large image sliders. The speed at which your page loads is also an important factor with Google's search rankings.
Did you know for every second your page takes to load you are potentially losing up to 7% of your leads?
If your WordPress website is slow or you aren't getting any leads perhaps it needs to be optimised. We can audit and optimise your website for you.
Our WordPress maintenance plan will give you peace of mind that your WordPress website is regularly backed up and that your website has the latest versions of WordPress, themes and plugins. Thus ensuring your website has the latest security updates and protection against hacks.
We ensure that your website is looked after and always being monitored by a WordPress expert. We guarentee you receive priority support when needed.
