The internet is the most important conduit for marketing and communication with 74.2% of the UK's population (nearly 47 million people) going online at least once per month in 2012.
A website is an essential asset to any business and with an ever increasing audience it is vital that your website represents your business in the best possible way.

Proper planning is often overlooked and is one of the most essential elements to successful web development. Planning a web project, when done improperly, can be a daunting task and without hands-on experience vital elements may well be missed.
The only thing worse than inadequate project planning is the absence of a plan altogether!
At an initial meeting, we will begin by asking the tried and tested questions we use to form our vision, scope and wireframe and initial design concept. These will aim to answer questions such as:
What are the objectives of the website and why?
Who are your target audience?
What is your business' long-term goal? How will this project help you get there?
What action do you want users to take after interacting with your website?
With good planning we can help you define your project's key features and translate them into reality.
Website design services
Essential to any online product, brand and retail environment, is good design. It makes the difference between being liked or disliked, noticed or unnoticed, sold or unsold. Design sets the tone of your company and the value of your product or service.
We love blue sky thinking and at ICE COMMS we have the knowledge, experience and skills base to ensure you appeal to your customers and attract many more. We are comfortable creating material from inception but equally to work within existing templates and established campaigns.
Our strength lies in the ability to listen carefully, research, and then apply total commitment.
ICE COMMS is a Devon based web design company dedicated to building innovative and accessible websites. Our core values revolve around delivering high quality products that make our clients proud, their customers smile and visit the website again and again and share their enjoyment with others.
Our clients are composed of businesses of every size from start-ups to multinationals.
Sometimes (most of the time!) off-the-shelf templates and open source software just isn’t quite what you need, and we understand that. Even the best content management system can’t do everything. ICE COMMS develop in .html and .css and have used a number of CMS (Content Management Systems) for many of our projects.
In our opinion, there is no one agency with the resource, in depth skills sets and knowledge to provide a full turn‐key solution. Sometimes a collaborative approach with strategic partners ensures that our clients get the right result for their website.
If a certain technology is required or is essential to a project, and if ICE COMMS feel the expertise is elsewhere, we are all too willing to bring in and manage key skills where required. We have a lot of very good colleagues throughout the UK who can dazzle us with their specific skills.
