We work across sectors including Public, business and Third sector and have designed and developed literally hundreds of very large sites since we started in 2000.

Website Design and Development for the Public Sector

Since we started S8080 in 2000, we have successfully launched websites and digital marketing campaigns for both large and small public sector organisations at national and local level.

Built to web standards, government and WAI accessibility and usability guidelines and security tested

We develop websites that are accessible to the very latest government guidelines. We utilise the latest coding and layout techniques to ensure everyone can enjoy your website without making design sacrifices. Our web projects are regularly subjected to user testing in labs to refine the user experience and then hardened by our techies before being security tested by 3rd party PEN testing companies.

Our solutions range from user experience design, information architecture, user testing, design and build of template systems that integrate with your existing enterprise web system, through to our bespoke content managed (CMS) websites, open source platforms and custom built applications that help to solve your organisation's unique problems.

Our user experience procedures, workshops and user testing ensure your website is guaranteed fit for purpose and very good value for money - it will be tightly aligned with your goals, KPI's and your audience groups and not just the whim of a design team or your stakeholders.

17 years of public sector experience (and counting...)

We have been working with large public sector bodies since 2000 and we understand the complex rules, procedures and guidelines you need to adhere to. Transparency, accountability, good value and measurability are very important to us too.

From our initial alignment meeting, scoping and information architecture through to design, delivery and hand over - you are involved every step of the way, and everything is meticulously documented, so you understand exactly what you're getting, when you're getting it and how much it will cost.

We don't hide behind marketing jargon or technical complexity. Everything, from our initial proposal to final documentation, is plain English. A dedicated PRINCE2 / Agile qualified project management team ensures the smooth running of projects and delivery on time and on budget. However, should you want to speak directly to the creative director or your programmer, we are all accessible.

Procurement and contracting S8080

We know that it is actually pretty difficult for you to commission an agency.

We have spent many years developing our offering to make sure we are perfectly set up to deliver public sector contracts at all levels. This starts long before any contracts are awarded.

We have everything in place to ensure we sail through your pre-qualification exercises. We are financially secure with large trading reserves. We are insured against every eventuality and we have every policy and procedure that an experienced public sector supplier should have (and more).

S8080 was the first digital media agency in Wales to achieve BS EN ISO 9001 quality certification. We have also have achieved ISO/IEC 27001 Information Security Management, Cyber Essentials, OHSAS18001 Occupational Health & Safety Management System, ISO14001 Environmental Management System and Investors in People. We have extensive security clearance.

Third Sector Websites

Our Third Sector clients have very similar needs to our public sector clients, but it's the subtle differences that make working with NGO's, NPO's and charities a lot of fun.

A lot of the time they are working with smaller budgets, but they bring a passion and enthusiasm to the table that easily makes up for the lack of a 200 page brand manual or the support of a national television campaign. It's all about high quality, creative bang for their buck.

Some of our Third Sector clients include:

  • Duke of Edinburgh's Award
  • Wales Cooperative Centre
  • BBC
