Sure, there are companies offering basic editable templates and off the shelf website packages but we wanted to deliver a more bespoke experience to our clients.
Because showcasing your business online and winning new customers is more vital today than ever before our approach to website design focuses on user experience first and foremost. We take pride in engaging with our clients at a conceptual level long before any technical design work begins. This is to ensure we don’t just deliver a high quality premium finish, but we create an experience that resonates with your audience.
We work primarily with the world’s most popular CMS, WordPress, allowing us the creative freedom to produce a website that fulfils all of your goals whilst at the same time providing a simple and recognisable interface for being able to update, add content and make changes to your site yourself. WordPress’ almost unlimited flexibility ensures there’s nothing to hold back your ultimate vision and we’ll work with you to fully realise the site you’ve always pictured.
Nestled in the beautiful North Downs, Farnham has given us an excellent base of operations to work with local clients across nearby Guildford, Woking, Farnborough and Aldershot. We’re also ideally placed to support organisations across East Hampshire such as in Basingstoke, Alton and Petersfield.
Clients across a range of sectors choose to work with us for the design, build and ongoing management of their web design projects and we’ve got particular expertise across the following industries:
We’ve built ecommerce sites, online portfolio sites, brochures and lead generation sites alongside many more. In fact we’re happy to turn our hand to anything you care to throw at us because we love our craft and always embrace a challenge!

Many companies and even individual designers will promise you whatever you’re seeking but don’t always have the know-how to back up their ambitions to win your business.
The reason we get so much repeat business, along with referrals and recommendations, not to mention our string of glowing testimonials, is that we’re genuinely passionate, highly skilled web design artisans. We don’t have loads of account managers and sales reps inflating our workforce. We have talented web designers ready to talk realistically about your website ambitions.
Some agencies will talk a good game but at Preface Studios we’re doers not talkers. We deliver highly efficient modern, responsive websites designed for smooth and seamless user experience. What’s more, by choosing to work with us you’ll benefit from the following:
We’ve grown up with WordPress and work with it every day. We know the platform inside out and we know just how powerful it can be without having to resort to shortcuts and scores of third party plugins.
The most successful web design projects continually evolve as the build progresses. We start with in-depth discussions to truly understand your business requirements and then sketch out early designs and wireframes before a single line of code is written.
Our specialist WordPress hosting keeps your site online and responsive no matter how busy it may get.
Local businesses need to know they’re targeting local customers and at Preface Studios we’re a local business too so we understand the need to ensure your site reaches the right local audience, whether that’s in Surrey or further afield.
As well as the most talented designers and developers we also work with online marketing specialists who can ensure your new site isn’t just gorgeous, but it’s being found by your desired audience. We have specialism with local SEO, inbound marketing, email marketing and paid advertising.
