Providers of high-quality, responsive website products, on time and within budget from our in-house North East development studio.

A County Durham web design studio dedicated to offering in-house, long-standing expertise, with clarity and understanding at every step of our honed web development process.

In the five years that Thrive has existed web development and design processes have become unrecognisable to what they were - but we’re always ahead of the curve. Today we deliver web design and app development services to the North East, UK, Europe and even in the US.  

Our talented, creative, logical, web development team work with you through the web and app design and build process to produce a bespoke web product that reflects your brand, engages your audience and creates a beautiful user experience.

01. Planning

We work with you in a number of client meetings to identify the project requirements, and to scope a solution that is right for your business - we don’t do off-the-shelf solutions. Based on your project size we will create a wireframe and proposal for you to sign off, as well as agree on terms for content creation.

02. Design

Let the creativity begin! As our roots are firmly in design, we love to create bespoke, stunning user interfaces that allow your brand to really showcase your marketing messages. At this point we may go through advanced wireframing, potentially some additional branding work and provide you with conceptual and prototype designs, to ensure we’re going to create a functional website or app that wows!

03. Development

We’re off - let’s create something that works for you (and your customers)! This is where our developers work hard to build a bespoke user experience-driven website or app. This will include a variety of technical elements including anything from software installation, configuration, desktop development or mobile testing. 

04. Launch

Go, go, go! The site or app is yours and once we’ve got sign off we will make the final additions or any amends, as well as checking any additional, custom requirements of your project, such as hosting, site maintenance packages, DNS and SSL implementations.

05. Delight

Things don't have to end there! We can set up an ongoing website maintenance package that might include hosting, regular app updates, etc., all completely bespoke to your requirements. Alternatively, you may want to address other areas of your digital presence, where our digital marketing team could support you to boost traffic and leads to your site or app!
