Working with Rubious - our process
1. Breaking the ice
Understanding your vision, your objectives and how you'll measure success enables Rubious to integrate with your strategy. We do this the old fashioned way; through dialogue. Listening (not just hearing) and challenging your boundaries with insightful suggestions, we begin the initial constructs of a design brief together, culminating in a project plan that allows you to maintain ownership and track progress right from the outset.
2. Design visuals
Right from this early project phase, you'll be able to observe mere concepts taking physical form through a selection of visuals we skilfully create for you to appraise. We meticulously absorb all of your feedback, and through regular engagement with you, facilitate complete satisfaction. Once these initial visuals meet with your approval, we move onto creating a set of more fully developed visuals. These detail main areas of your website and how specific features will work. Final design follows a seamless fusion of form and function through this consultative process.
3. Development & testing
Following your approval of the final design, our technical department begins coding all the wonderful interactive features and tools detailed in the project brief. Whilst consultation is at a lower level during this phase, you can rest assured that security and robust coding techniques are at the fore. Our construction methods also comply with best industry practice to deliver search engine optimisation and device-compatibility right from launch. Once built, all websites are stress tested for performance, compliance and security.
4. Maintenance & support
Following your final approval, the website has its grand launch! But our involvement doesn’t just stop there. Continually monitoring all our websites and executing performance and maintenance updates, we will also invite you to periodic review meetings to assess your website performance, exchange suggestions for continuous improvement, and to consider appropriate additions.

We really enjoyed working with Rubious. They are fun and very professional. Rubious quickly understood the brief and had some great suggestions on how we could convey our key messages and better capitalise on the amount of traffic our blog content was generating. The final delivery of a new website was on time, on budget and met all our expectations. We will certainly ask Rubious to undertake further work for us. A great job – Thanks guys.

We researched a number of website design companies before choosing Rubious and found that they were not only very competitive but offered us great design and a very user friendly flexible content management system. They listened to our brief and worked closely with us to develop a site which reflects our ethos and complements our brand.
Rubious have been extremely helpful throughout the project and delivered our new website on budget, also producing a great mobile version to run alongside the main website. They have given us clear guidance and a tailored online manual so that we can keep our website up-to-date and manage the content independently.

We were looking for a brand new, modern website that was easy to navigate and conveyed our core principles to ‘provide state of the art, high quality piling equipment backed by a first class service’. A must-have was a content management system so that we could edit the site ourselves and transfer easily, should we ever have that requirement. It was also important to us to employ a local firm and after various communications, two companies were shortlisted. Initially we liked Rubious’ website and their portfolio of previous projects which gave us confidence that they were able to fulfil our objectives. After contacting them, Greg and Shaun’s professional approach impressed and conveyed their attitude to their work in general.
Rubious quickly understood our requirements and the nuances associated with our business. They made some great suggestions and have created a website that we are very proud of and we have had amazing feedback from both our suppliers and customers. Best of all, since launch, our UK traffic has increased by just under 50% on the same time last year and enquiries via the website have also improved.
Throughout the process the team at Rubious have provided a first rate customer service which continues post launch. Any queries are dealt with promptly and patiently – even though sometimes I’m sure the questions asked have obvious answers!
We look forward to a continued working relationship with Rubious and developing the website even further in the future. We’ve already got ideas!
