How we’ve always done great web design in Dearne Valley
It’s no secret that we’re not the only Dearne Valley Web Design Agency with great creativity, and nor do we pretend to be. However, we are the only agency with our unique approach to Web Design, Web Development, SEO, and Social Media. Not to mention the strong partnerships we hold with our clients.
…and when we say partnership, we mean it. Your business, website, or social media isn’t just 9-5, and neither are we. We’ll call you, come see you, bat around ideas and have a good ol’ chin-wag about anything and everything digital. We actively involve you as much (- or as little) as you want and that works both ways – you can always call us, day or night, and we mean that.
An insight into our Web Design process…
Info Gathering & Planning
We have an initial chat about the web project, and develop a unique website plan. The plan includes website and competitor analysis, design research, and inspiration building.
Design & Development
We begin piecing together and developing the website sitemap, design assets, web pages, and content optimised for Google search results. as well as collecting your thoughts and feedback.
Testing & Launch
Thorough testing on all modern browsers and devices, including fixes to any bugs or glitches. Train you on how to use the website, if required. Configure hosting, security, and hit launch!
Web Design FAQs
We fully train you, or your staff, on how to use your website’s WordPress Content Management System (CMS). Your CMS allows you to change and adapt your website’s content, photography, and other design aspects of the website quickly.
We also use a series of plugins to layout your website content in a friendly and easy to use way, almost like a simple version of Microsoft Word, making things way less complicated. (AKA no coding knowledge required!)
It’s always difficult to tell you a specific answer without knowing the brief in-depth, as it can depend on the website’s complexity and the functionality required.
A fairly simple website could take a week, whereas a more complex eCommerce website with 1000’s of products could take longer.
Once we have your website brief, we come back to you with a timescale for the project that fits around your requirements and position – meaning you can put your feet up and have a brew while we take care of it all!
Yes! Our hosting is truly unlimited, with 100% SSD Storage Space and a free SSL certificate. With our UK-based web hosting, you’ll also have the comfort of knowing that your website will be up 99.99% of the time.
Need multiple email accounts set up? No problem! We don’t limit you or charge extra, that’s not how we roll.
Yes, totally, and 100%.
Once your website or design work has been signed off by yourself the website, content, and graphics will all be handed over to you.
Please note: This doesn’t include any of the open-source WordPress CMS, Plugins, or Stock Photography used to create your website, as they’re likely owned by third parties but with free to use licenses, but the actual design and content will be 100% yours.
We do what we do for one reason, we absolutely love it. We’re grafters, with a proven track record for offering top-notch services.

No, never! All of the work carried out for our clients is done by ourselves in-house.
We do however sometimes use UK based self-employed contractors with specialist skills that are required for certain advanced projects.
Athena Media will always avoid where possible the use of oversea contractors due to overseas companies not always being able to comply with the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
What Our Clients Say…
Horizon Risk Consultancy
The initial consultation was simple, he listened to my needs and presented his own ideas. The website was designed quickly and with care. Before launching, all the small details were taken care of and I can honestly say, it’s the best money I have spent.
I have great pride in sending potential clients to my website.
Matt Nicholls Photography
Ben has done a great job of understanding our needs and updating our websites. He has great enthusiasm, his communication skills are first class – explaining at our level how we should go forward, this makes it so easy to work with him.
Cowper & Tordoff
Ben is an absolute star, he created me a website for my Wedding Photography business. I had a vision but not a clear idea so I sent Ben lots and lots of screenshots and random scribbles and he came up with what he thought I liked. It was amazing but me being me changed my mind a couple of times and he could not have been more helpful or accommodating offering his advice and own creative ideas.
I have very little IT knowledge and Ben of Athena guided me through the design of my website, resulting in a superb website and business cards. As the Easy On Clothing business expands, Athena will be a much valued and long term media supplier.
Thank you, Ben, you made this difficult task easy.
