Web Design & Development

Big Pepper can create a website for you which not only works great, but is user-friendly, and easy to navigate. Using the latest tools and technologies, your website will stand out in search engines.

Web Development

We custom develop web sites and web applications to your requirements.  The great thing about this is a website can be tailored to you and your customers needs.  When we develop a web site, we firstly look at navigation and usability.  A website needs to have clear navigation so the browser can find their way around easily, and get what they need fast.  Before we even start the design process, we use wire-frame mockups to plan navigation with you.  Our coding is clean and semantic, which search engines love.  Having good knowledge of coding standards helps search engines find you on the internet, and rank you better.  A good example of using quality code would be Search engine friendly URLS.  So say if you had an e-commerce store, rather than seeing random numbers and letters in the address bar, a better approach would be:  www.mysite.com/stationary/pencils/12-pack-pencils.  This gives the search engine an idea of what the page is about, and what category it resides.  This is one way of achieving a better rank, and helping you get found using good web development.
