- Long before the Norman conquest, Edmund the Martyr, commonly known as St Edmund, was King of East Anglia. He died in November 869. He didn’t die in a peaceful manner and according to legend, he was tied to a tree, shot with arrows and beheaded, as he refused to share power with what he regarded as heathen non-Christians. In the 11th Century his remains were taken to what became Bury St Edmunds before the abbey was established there. The shrine eventually built there became one of the most famous pilgrimage locations in England. In 1539 when the abbey was largely destroyed and the shrine defaced, the bones disappeared during the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII.
Frequently asked Website Design Suffolk questions
I’m interested in a website designed by you. What’s the next step?
First of all get in touch. Feel free to share any ideas, text and images. Perhaps you already know the number of pages you need (e.g Home, About, Services/Product and Contact). It sometimes helps to check out your competitors’ websites and make a note of what you like and don’t like. Once I have an idea of the sort of website you want, I will email you a quote.
I’m happy with your quote. What happens next?
Now the fun begins! We will agree a deadline and I will start work on your new website as soon as possible. Usually we begin with the home page design. If you have some text and photos ready – great! If not I can improvise until your content is ready. Once I’ve finished the draft design, I will send you a link and invite feedback. If necessary I will continue to work on the design until you are 100% happy. Finally, I’ll ask you to send me your content so that I can build the rest of the website.
I don’t have much copy and only a few photos. Can you help me with the content?
Yes! We provide a copywriting service, photography, video, animation and graphic services. We can also design logos and help with branding. Just mention your requirements when asking for a quote.
