User research for user-centred design

Creating, Testing and Scaling the Design of Digital Services
When it comes to establishing, or defining, a business or organisation, the obvious place to start is to think about what it wants to deliver, how it fills a gap in the market, and what its purpose is.

Boosting Website Performance
Your website should be the face of your business. In an age of online shopping, strategic marketing, and increasingly intricate SEO, your website needs to perform above the rest to reach to your target audience - but how?
Designing Intelligently with A/B Testing
Effective digital solutions observe development as multifaceted and flexible. Both your designing and manual building phases will take a few forms before the final product deployment, and much of this change comes off the back of feedback and testing.
How to Create a Web Design Brief
So, you need a new website. Perhaps you are launching a new business, or perhaps your existing business has outgrown your old website.
Building Valuable Digital Teams
Talent in the digital industry is in high demand. From developers, penetration testers, and security experts to infrastructure engineers, designers, and IT diagnostics, their skills are varied and required to some degree in most modern businesses.
Designing Accessibility for the Public Sector
Research and discovery will always form the foundation of our project development. No matter the size or complexity scale, conducting user, competitor and internal analysis allows 6B to gain first-hand insight into what makes your company different, your offering better, and your audience unique.
Managing Risks in Digital Development
During the development period of any digital product, change and compromise are always inevitable. Though these variables can offer opportunities to better refine your work, or an instance for your teams to come together in collaborative problem solving, they can also present challenges, risks and potential issues to the overall continuity of the project.
Inspiring Creative SEO
Truly successful SEO content is strategic. Well placed keywords, LSI phrases, and intelligently constructed metadata is the key to creating optimised web pages and articles - but how much are we sacrificing well-written work to achieve Google’s best ranked search?
Retainers and Other 6B Support
Effective digital solutions should have the ability to grow and change alongside your business, which is why we pay serious attention to implementing forward-thinking technology and future-proofed design into our work.
AI: The New Face of Web Design
As the world of digital development becomes evermore competitive and saturated with talented developers and innovative thinkers, the room for repetitive design is non-existent.

Local Government: A Project in Bradford

Zoho vs MS Dynamics
Off-the-shelf development has become an increasingly competitive market, with suppliers working to outshine their competitors with innovative technologies and cost effective out of the box products, services, and tools.
Off-the-Shelf vs. Bespoke Development
Choosing the most appropriate digital solution for your business isn’t always as intuitive as ‘this one or that one?’. Digital development can be a mind field and without the consultation of expert developers and digital agencies, picking wrong can be extremely harmful to your online business.
What Government Contracts Have Taught Us
Large-scale digital development has become second nature to 6B. We’re delighted at our catalogue of experience working in collaboration with local and national government.
During our time designing and developing digital solutions, brand identities and marketing schematics, we’ve certainly grown alongside our work. As such, it’s become clear that the road to our ultimate success lies most heavily in how we choose to approach our work.

.NET Core – What’s the Word?
In an industry quickly becoming oversaturated with zealous newcomers, businesses that strive to top the web and software development ladder need to adapt now more than ever. Bog standard is out of the window as clients hunt for the most intuitive developers to further their business operations with innovative technology and bold designs.
Creating a Brand Identity
Creating a brand is so much more than a nice logo, it’s more than a colour palette, a memorable slogan, or how everything looks on your packaging. Brand identity is the essence of your offer, whether that’s a product, or a service, it should entirely encapsulate your core values and the promises you make to customers.
Kentico Partner Programme
6B is proud to announce our official partnership with Kentico, as part of the Partner Programme. Kentico is a leading web content management and building platform, with intuitive functions, vast interoperability and integrations, and a modern .NET foundation.
