Web design is a passion of ours… and we focus on the whole journey. Your website has to get found and look cool but that is just half the battle. It also has to be easy to navigate and ultimately do what you want it to do. What is the point in your website getting lots of traffic if it doesn’t convert visits into enquiries?
As Steve Jobs said: “Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.”
From designing mobile-first websites to a fast turnaround on graphic design services for brochures and business stationery, Key 3 Media balances aesthetics with functionality.
Your business needs a website that looks fantastic, is easy to use on any device and, most importantly, does what it’s supposed to: position you as the go-to guys in your field and generate enquiries. Key 3 Media has undertaken numerous web design projects in Shropshire and London.
One service that sets us apart from many web designers is that we include copywriting in the price. We don’t expect you, the client, to provide the writing. You’re busy, after all. You may not be the best writer. We will get all the information we need, resulting in persuasive, engaging text that highlights your benefits.
Key 3 Media mainly uses WordPress to build our websites. In fact, over a quarter of the world’s websites use the WordPress platform, including The New York Times. Here’s why:
- The design of each website is 100% customisable
- The code is clean and simple, making WordPress sites Google-friendly
- It can accommodate additional functionality, even e-commerce and booking systems
- The way we set up the admin console makes it super simple for client edits
- The system is easy to transfer should you ever wish to switch web designers
Once your website has gone live, you may want to take charge of future edits yourself. In that case, we can give you full admin rights. Our system is ‘drag and drop’, so it is literally as easy as website editing gets. There is a still a level of knowledge required, of course, such as image resizing and blog uploading. It depends how much time (and inclination) you have.
Most clients prefer Key 3 Media to take care of ongoing changes for a small, all-inclusive maintenance fee. They simply email us what needs doing when it needs doing and we take care of it promptly.
As with our websites, graphic design isn’t “just” about making something look pretty. It has to do what you want it to do. What’s the call to action? What’s going to make people remember you? How is the spelling and grammar? Imagine paying a fortune for a big ad in the newspaper and once it’s gone to print you find a typo… Ouch! Not a good representation of your company and you’ve had to pay for the privilege.
Our main graphic design projects in Shropshire and London are:
- Press advertisements
- Business stationery
- Promotional items such as key rings and mugs
Andy and his team put in a lot of time to get to know our business intimately so that they could portray our friendly image across on the website. I would highly recommend them!

Key 3 Media designs and prints all of our business stationery and brochures. This can sometimes be someone’s first impression of your company, so it has to be quality.
