From the initial brief and research about your business to your end users and customers, no detail is left untouched to create a beautifully designed and dynamically built website.

Most websites we create today are developed using the framework of Content Management Systems (or CMS for short) allowing our clients to take advantage of a robust, well supported and regularly updated platform. This in the long term saves our clients money and offers a truly flexible system to grow with their business.

Whether on a mobile, tablet or on desktop device – all of a website’s content should be clear and easy to navigate for the user.

Responsive design helps modern websites appeal to modern users; users who are increasingly likely to traverse the internet using a mobile or tablet device, but who still expect their desktop experience to be as smooth as ever.


Every project starts with a thorough research phase where we discover your goals, business plan and ultimately what you want to achieve from your website.


Once we know your target audience and business analysis has been established, we carefully plan the website layout, features, and functionalities for enhanced user experience.


This is where our ideas become visible. We’ll collaborate with you on a number of creative routes, producing content and designing iteratively so that you can see our direction at all times.

We had the issue finding right developer for our task but Design & Online gladly took on our project and completed it successfully. We would work with this company again no hesitation.

    thumb Roisin Moran

    review rating 5  I've been with daop for 9 months and during that time we've made steady progress up the rankings in a very competitive segment. We're a small company with a relatively low budget, but have always been made to feel like a valued client. Emma is local to us and she's visited on several occasions to discuss tweaks to the campaign. Knowledgeable, welcoming (& very patient), willing to guide me through the complexities of things.

    thumb James Nobel

    review rating 5  After meeting with several web designers, and trolling through multiple websites and google results we were met with a breath of fresh air with daop. As you’ll know finding the right people to work with is difficult and trusting them with your money and business is a big decision to make. Emma is so knowledgable when it comes to SEO and really does have the perfect business attitude. She's just brilliant with everything technical, and overall the quality in service and speed in response time is second to none.
