Thomas the Baker
Launched Oct 2016
With an aging and bloated website Thomas the Baker came to Bronco for a complete update bringing the design up to date to match their offline materials as well as develop a brand new E-commerce platform to grow their online sales.
Always pushing forward, never settling for good enough!
All businesses know how critical a website can be to their success. No matter the size of business, whether you need a small brochure style single pager or a full e-commerce solution, it’s critical to have a straightforward and user friendly website that makes the experience delightful while also meeting the objectives of your business.
Bronco understand that the smallest decisions can have the biggest impact so our experienced team know the importance of considering carefully every element of a website throughout all stages of the process from research through to testing and launch.
Having built a variety of bespoke websites, each tailored to a client's specific requirements, we completely understand the need for complex functionality, engaging user experience and all-round efficiency. You can be fully assured that your website is in the safest possible hands.

Hand-tailored E-commerce solutions that fit you perfectly
Whether you're a new business selling a few handmade items or an established organisation with over a million products, our experience in building, developing and supporting e-commerce websites is unparalleled.
Each new build brings with it a unique challenge, extending our experience far beyond the standard e-commerce website. We're more than capable of building a platform that includes a wealth of functionality, including complex product options, various payment integrations (PayPal, Stripe and PayPoint included) and CRM API's, to name just a few.
Pick from a custom or open-source CMS
At Bronco we code almost exclusively in PHP, and so when it comes to Content Management Systems (CMS) we've built up a lot of experience with WordPress. Its fluidity and large community of plugin developers make it the ideal choice for many blogs and websites.
But sometimes a pre-existing CMS isn't the best fit to a particular set of requirements; if one is even needed at all. In these instances our expert team of developers are well equipped to provide a bespoke solution that's well-suited to your needs.
Prioritising usability to increase conversion
It's simple. The easier a website is to use the more likely your users become customers. Building on years of experience gives us an understanding of the barriers that affect conversion and how to avoid these.
Every company and by extension their website has a different set of priorities than even their closest competitors. Our job is to focus on these business objectives, unifying them with the users goals and providing a solution that accommodates all the stakeholders in a form that ultimately benefits everyone.
Responsive design with a mobile-first approach
At Bronco we don't just take a fixed desktop website and squeeze it to fit on a mobile device, instead we take a mobile-first approach to responsive design in-part by reviewing everything going into the website and ensuring we include only what is necessary for the user to achieve their goals and for the website to succeed.
By adopting this approach and streamlining a website we ensure we're building optimised, consistent and accessible experiences that work for all users irrespective of how and where they consume the web.
In a fast moving world your website has to be able to keep up
How long someone will wait while a website loads depends on a number of factors; but a person's patience is finite. At Bronco we're constantly adapting our development process to take advantage of new techniques that deliver meaningful speed improvements in order to ensure slow site speed isn't hurting our clients.
By not relying solely on automated processes and online checklists, we consider the impact every idea, element and feature may have on the loading time of a website throughout the design and build stages. Ultimately striving to balance visually complex designs with light and fast loading code.
A world that doesn't discriminate
One of the founding visions for the web was to empower everyone no matter their circumstances. Not only is accessibility on the web a legal requirement it's also a moral one.
But accessibility doesn't only benefit those with disabilities, through thoughtful design, progressive enhancement and good coding standards we aim to ensure our websites provide a usable and accessible experience for all users.
A functional and easy to use website is the baseline
A website that just works; this is the minimum we hope to deliver on any new website. But just being functional isn't always enough to help grow a business.
Many websites rely on repeat customers and word-of-mouth promotion in order to grow. One way Bronco helps is by delivering engaging experiences that delight users and where possible evoke emotional responses that create a more lasting impression so that users keep returning as well as sharing with others.
A brand for the modern world
Even before starting work on a new website a business needs a brand that truly reflects their business; something that is recognisable and aligned with the expectations of their audience.
At Bronco we're able to deliver a new identity to a startup or evolve an aging logo for a existing business into something users will remember and that conveys your values and message perfectly.
A complex puzzle designed to feel simple
Asking all the right questions
Good research and analysis is the difference in making a great website. Building on our understanding of current web standards and trends we apply this to our detailed research into a client, their competitors and the market to deliver a leading website.
- Competitor research
- Current design trends
- Client questionnaire
- Technical specification
- UX best practice
A unique style to suit
Whether building something new or taking inspiration from existing marketing we work to create a design that is the ideal reflection of the research we've undertaken, the business requirements and the feedback we receive throughout the design process.
- Research based
- User focused
- Design & iterate
- Modern techniques
Coding like a boss
Coding isn't just about achieving the right result to deliver specific functionality. We constantly optimise our code making it lightweight, reusable and efficient. It might be behind the scenes stuff but the benefits to areas such as site speed are crucial.
- Open source
- No proprietary software
- Standards based
- Hosting available
- Nominet registrar
A most critical undertaking
Testing isn't a quick process, nor something to briefly skim through in the rush to launch. Our in-house team are constantly testing a website throughout the build and again after completion to deliver the website in a good state for the client to undertake their own testing.
- Appropriate browser support
- Device testing
- Site speed
Not just a flick of a switch
Launch can be a complex juggling act between new and old website, between online and offline marketing and much more besides. We work with companies to make the process as stress-free as possible and give the new website a strong start.
- Hosting migration
- On-going support
