We work across sectors including Public, business and Third sector and have designed and developed literally hundreds of very large sites since we started in 2000.

Website Design and Development for the Public Sector

Since we started S8080 in 2000, we have successfully launched websites and digital marketing campaigns for both large and small public sector organisations at national and local levels, including:

Built to web standards, government and WAI accessibility and usability guidelines and Security tested

We develop websites that are accessible to the very latest government guidelines. We utilise the latest coding and layout techniques to ensure everyone can enjoy your website without making design sacrifices. Our web projects are regularly subjected to user testing in labs to refine the user experience and then hardened by our techies before being security tested by 3rd party PEN testing companies.

Our solutions range from user experience design, information architecture, user testing, design and build of template system’s that integrate with your existing enterprise web system, through to our bespoke content managed (CMS) websites, open source platforms and custom built applications that help to solve your organisation's unique problems.

Our user experience procedures, workshops and user testing ensure your website is guaranteed fit for purpose and very good value for money - it will be tightly aligned with your goals, KPI's and your audience groups and not just the whim of a design team or your stakeholders. And of course, you'll have the analytics to back it all up.

14 years of public sector experience (and counting...)

We have been working with big public sector bodies since 2000 and we understand the complex rules, procedures and guidelines you need to adhere to. Transparency, accountability, good value and measurability are very important to us too.

From our initial alignment meeting, scoping and information architecture through to design, delivery and hand over - you are involved every step of the way, and everything is meticulously documented, so you understand exactly what you're getting, when you're getting it and how much it will cost.

We don't hide behind marketing jargon or technical complexity. Everything, from our initial proposal to final documentation, is plain English. A dedicated PRINCE2 / Agile qualified project management team ensures the smooth running of projects and delivery on time and on budget. However, should you want to speak directly to the creative director or your programmer, we are all accessible.

Procurement and contracting S8080

We know that it is actually pretty difficult for you to commission an agency.

We have spent many years developing our offering to make sure we are perfectly set up to deliver public sector contracts at all levels. This starts long before any contracts are awarded.

We have everything in place to ensure we sail through your pre-qualification exercises. We are financially secure with large trading reserves. We are insured against every eventuality and we have every policy and procedure that an experienced public sector supplier should have (and more).

S8080 was the first digital media agency in Wales to achieve BS EN ISO 9001:2008 quality certification. We have also have achieved OHSAS18001:2007 Occupational Health & Safety Management System, ISO14001:2004 Environmental Management System and Investors in People. We have extensive security clearance.

We are on the digital media rosters of many public sector organisations, including the Crown Commercial Services (CCS) that replaced the very exclusive COI Communications framework, enabling us to work with clients like Directgov, NHS, Ministry of Justice, Department of Health and many more.

Business & commerce Websites

Most of the business websites we build need to do one of two things - increase sales or save money, sometimes both.

These things are pretty easy to achieve - it's all about ensuring your website or online communication is tightly aligned with your business objectives and your audience groups and not just the whim of a design team or board of directors.

So how do we do it?

A successful site or campaign starts with a good amount of ground work. Our initial alignment meeting can take anything from two hours to two days depending on the size of your operation. Basically, as long as it takes to learn every relevant detail about your business and specifically, your clients or users.

We would probably involve most of your management team and maybe your business development team – anyone who interfaces with your clients and really understands what they want from you.

From these foundations, we can design everything around your bottom line objectives and your (potential) client’s needs – at the end of the day, we will make it very easy for them to buy from you.

From this point onwards, through the user experience design, graphic design and technical build - you are involved every step of the way, and everything is meticulously documented, so you understand exactly what you're getting, when you're getting it and how much it will cost.

Our clients

Or client list is impressive. We are very proud of the work we have done for the household names including the White Stripes, 20th Century Fox, Adobe, Expedia.com, Karrimor and Mates Condoms.

But we are equally proud of the solutions we have created for the many successful small businesses we enjoy as clients.

We apply exactly the same quality of service, the same attention to detail and the same big business branding principles to small business situations, offering staggering results.

Whatever the size of your enterprise, S8080 will help.

As you become more successful and your company grows, we will help you with the online marketing strategy that will take your business further, leaving your competitors wondering what your secret is.

Working with us

From the initial contact, you’ll be working with S8080’s directors, not sales people – we don’t have any. We’ll personally respond to your brief with a well-considered, detailed and competitive proposal. Then, if you feel we are the right people for the job, we’ll get going.

We will kick the project off with you and run the strategy and user experience elements of the project. This phase normally represents about 20 to 25% of the overall project. Once we are happy that the foundations of your site are robust and delivering against the objectives you set out, we’ll brief our design and technical teams and then hand over to one of our project managers.

Our dedicated PRINCE2 / Agile qualified project management team ensures the smooth running of projects and delivery on time. However, should you want to speak directly to the creative director or your programmer, we are all accessible.

You’ll find we are enthusiastic, hard-working, efficient and straight talking. We don't hide behind sales patter, marketing jargon or technical complexity. Everything, from our initial proposal to final documentation, is plain English.

Third Sector Websites

Our Third Sector clients have very similar needs to our public sector clients, but it's the subtle differences that make working with NGO's, NPO's and charities a lot of fun.

A lot of the time they are working with smaller budgets, but they bring a passion and enthusiasm to the table that easily makes up for the lack of a 200 page brand manual or the support of a national television campaign. It's all about high quality, creative bang for the buck.

Some of our Third Sector clients include:

  • Duke of Edinburgh's Award
  • Children's Workforce Development Agency
  • Wales Cooperative Centre
  • The Audit Commission
  • Consumer Focus
  • BBC
  • Surrey CAMHS
  • Brecon Beacons National Park Authority
  • Forensic Science Service
  • Environment Agency
  • Footprint Wales
  • GoSafe Casualty Reduction Partnership
  • Lee Valley Regional Park Authority
  • London Safety Camera Partnership
  • Surrey Safety Camera Partnership
  • World Wildlife Fund
