Web Design

Bespoke websites, responsive and CMS ready

Paddle creates websites designed with purpose, built with the latest technology - in short Paddle creates web experiences that connect users with goals, and brings you new customers and cements relationships with existing customers.

Websites, truly Bespoke

Every business needs a website with a purpose that functions across all devices and ultimately fulfils a purpose. Paddle will help you redefine that purpose, and carefully craft a website around the needs of your business. Paddle Creative are specialists in affordable web design in Cornwall, delivering powerful results for a range of businesses.

Your Website by Paddle will...
  • Be Responsive (work across all types of devices)
  • Content Magement System (CMS) enabled - you will be able to edit it yourself
  • Be built for SEO (Search Engine Optomisation)
  • Be secure (all Paddle sites include encryption as standard)
  • Make your brand sing to your audience
  • We think we are without doubt one of the best web design companies in Cornwall

Make your brand sing, via your website

Looking pretty but with real purpose!

Web designers can sometimes get a little technical when talking web-design. Still, the bottom line is first-impressions count (7 seconds to be exact)! That is why the number one thing Paddle think about when crafting your website - what is going to make your brand sing to your customers and make sure your business grows.

Google ready (SEO)

Search engine optomisation (SEO)

So you've paid for a beautiful site. Great. But how will your customers find your website? A large proportion of people will find you via Google.

All websites built by Paddle are SEO optimised; in simple terms this means your site will have a better chance of appearing near the top of Google search results. Being easier to find on Google means your customers will find you easier.

Correct SEO is an ongoing basis of blogs, outreach, social media and more. Still, all of that becomes irrelevant if the website foundation is not fit for purpose. Your Paddle website will give you a great foundation to propel your business to the top of Google search results.

You can manage your own website

Content Management System (CMS) enabled

Your business changes as it adapts, as your product or services change. That's why your website must be updated to adapt to these changes. For this reason, Paddle gives you the power to add/edit/alter your website yourself via an easy to use CMS. Paddle will provide full training on how to use the CMS, but it is straightforward!

In safe hands

SSL Encrypted Websites

OK, so 'SSL' sounds some seriously dull, but your website needs SSL.

SSL secures your website with encryption. Without it, your site can easily be hacked, and so can your customers. That never ends well.

All sites built and hosted with Paddle come with SSL as standard, meaning your website is safe with Paddle.

Website FAQ

Do you use templates to build websites?

Absolutely not! All websites built by Paddle are bespoke from scratch, and based entirely around the needs of your business. You will be able to find ‘cheaper’ websites by searching online. But what you will find (probably without realising) is that these cheaper offerings are simply templates which people change the images and text and pass off as a website built for your business, when actually this is not the case. A template is simply a whole lot of code and has not been developed to fit your business needs. Think of it this way; you could get your wedding dress from Asda (no offence to Asda, they do excellent ice cream), nothing wrong with that if that is what you are after. But most brides want to look their absolute best on their wedding day, and so will get a dress they love, and then make sure it fits! If you are passionate about your business, the dress (I mean website) should be one that fits your business like a wedding dress fits a bride and is made for you! Your website will be built from scratch for your business.

Will I have to pay to make changes to my website after it is live?

No! We see it as an old-fashioned business model that means you have to pay a couple of hundred pounds for small changes like changing a phone number. Paddle Creative does not believe this is the way it should be – it is your website, and you should have control over it! One of the most critical aspects of a bespoke website created by Paddle Creative is you will have the power to make many changes yourself. You will have access to a powerful CMS (content management system) and editor, meaning you will easily be able to alter the content on the website yourself, long-after it has wowed your customers! What’s more, Paddle will record a bespoke training video showing you how to edit the site so editing and updating your site will be easy peasy! You may even be able to add pages yourself depending on how we agreed to structure the site.

That said, if you would like your website developing even further later down the like, such as a whole new section for a new market or product, Paddle will be ready to assist. Pricing will be reasonable, and as we will know your business and website inside out, any work will match what you currently have.

What platform are your websites built on?

For the most part, Paddle builds websites based around the Webflow platform. Webflow is a powerful platform that some huge companies have built their websites using. It is relatively new to the UK market, but it is the fastest growing web site platform in the USA. Paddle is an official Webflow Partner, reserved for the best and most trustworthy web developers using their platform. The strength of Webflow is the fantastic power it brings to design flexibility. This flexibility means that the site Paddle builds for you will be bespoke to your business, made so much easier with the Webflow platform.

Can I get my website cheaper elsewhere?

Yes, probably. That is an odd thing for a business to say, but a cheap website will cheapen your business – Paddle Creative does not do cheap, we offer bespoke but cost-effective. A bad website can do more harm than good. In the long run, it is much more cost-effective to have a properly built and optimised website rather than run the risk of the damage a poorly designed website can do. Added to that, a bespoke and carefully thought out website will enhance your brand and give you a platform on which to build your business on moving forwards. Many companies also offer ‘cheap’ websites then charge you through the nose for small adjustments. Paddle Creative will not do that; we will build your website so that you have the power to easily make many changes yourself with a power Content Management System.

Do you build websites using Wordpress?

No. Nope. Whilst we are not going to start ‘Wordpress’ bash right here, let’s just say we saw early on in the company development that Wordpress was not the platform we wanted to hang our hat on. There are a few reasons why, one main issue is security and reliance on plugins. So if you would like a Wordpress website, then unfortunately I cannot help. But the actual platform your website will be built on is Webflow, which removes many of the issues that Wordpress sites present, in our opinion.
