Your website creates the all-important first impression of your business. It’s your ‘virtual’ shop window and 3 Creative helps you draw your customers to visit, browse, be engaged, purchase and return time and time again.
Our aim is to produce beautifully designed, practical and responsive websites that help you to fulfil your business objectives. Honesty and integrity is at the heart of what we do, so there are no frustrating contracts. You’ll own your website outright. We’ll just help you by designing the website that works for you and maintaining your digital platform.
There’s more to websites than just the design. For your business to succeed online you’ll need to make sure your site is search engine and user friendly. Our expertise will give you peace of mind that your site is making the right impression with your target audience and continually raising your profile.
We’re happy to work with any existing suppliers you might have, but we also offer a range of services to give you the very best quality website in terms of content and visuals. This includes writing, graphic design, photography and video production services. We aim to make you and your business stand out.
Simply put, a project where we’re doing some custom design or development for you, and it’s more involved than just a couple of hours of work. Bespoke projects are where you need something unique to your business, and is bigger than what’s covered by our going PAYG credits packages.
Some projects can be very simple and take less than a day, some projects can be very large and are completed over several weeks or months. When we give you a quote for a bespoke project, we include an estimate of the time it will take to complete the project in addition to our fees for completing the work.
Examples of bespoke projects:

- Creating a brand new plugin from scratch for you
- Extending an existing plugin (such as WooCommerce, Easy Digital Downloads, Gravity Forms) so that it can do something special and unique

Our process for implementing bespoke projects for you
As the process for a bespoke project is understandably more complex than a few code tweaks, we follow a simple process to ensure we’re developing something that you really need. This is the process that we follow when delivering a bespoke project.
1. Our Initial Phone Call or Meeting to discuss your requirements and work out a plan where we can help you.
2. Write Project Requirements / Proposal and give you a quote.
3. Either by phone or email we will check that the requirements are correct.
4. We ask for a 40% deposit before the project begins or the initial payment as agreed in the initial meeting and layed out in the Project Requirements document / Proposal. The work is then scheduled in our diary.
5. We start work on your project and if required collect the 2nd payment if agreed.
6. We get your feedback throughout the project.
7. We implement tweaks and changes based on your feedback.
8. The work is completed and you sign the project off and pay the project balance.
9. The work is delivered or website put live depending upon the project requirements.
10. Your complimentary 3 month website care period begins where minor tweaks and changes are made to your website in areas that might have come to light now that the website is live. We will keep your site safe and secure with our WordPress Care Package and make plans and implement any continuation of the Care Package for after the 3 month care period has ended.
