When we say custom website design, we mean it. Unlike some agencies who claim to offer a custom web design service – but really mean an off-the-shelf product with plugins – we mean that your website, mobile site or App will be concepted, designed and developed from scratch using the best technologies available. Custom web development offers clear benefits; the flexibility to meet the precise needs of your business and ease of ongoing maintenance. Scalable, adaptable web development allows you to keep up with changes in the marketplace and the shifting sands of a constantly evolving web. These benefits make custom web design compellingly cost effective in the long term.

Open source options

Open source web development systems can be an attractive option, particularly when utilised for specific applications such as CMS. We support and develop for open source such as Magento, Wordpress, Drupal and Ruby. Our Surrey web development teams will ensure that you get the best out of these technologies and are adept at working within their limitations.

If you would like a balanced appraisal of the open source technologies available versus the benefits of custom web development, or have a legacy system you'd like to work with give us a call, we'll be happy to run through the options with you.

Plain English

Although we deal with the technical aspects of a variety of web development technologies daily, we're not big fans of jargon and we won't try to bamboozle you with science. We have a plain English culture that fosters real understanding between the technical, web design and client-facing sides of the business. If you'd like to see how this works in practice, contact us about your web design project or idea.

Drum are a highly skilled professional bunch who have provided web solutions on numerous occasions for our company. All the projects Drum have worked on for us have been successfully completed and always achieved with a high level of standard."

Gus Rey | IT Support Technician
Card Connection | Farnham, Surrey


Drum were an excellent partner for this project throughout. They came up with innovative ideas through the web development phase, paid great attention to every detail during production, and carried out all activities with unparalleled professionalism, technical skill and good humour. Above all, Drum strove to understand what was needed and produced the results via a collaborative and inclusive approach. The words proactive, creative and meticulous spring to mind and all team members were, and continue to be a pleasure to work with."

Depth of experience

Many of our web development projects for the pharma, technology or defense industries are subject to agreements that limit our bragging rights. But we've listed a few technical achievements here that we’re particularly proud of.

  • A php/MySQL custom e-learning application with an expansive bespoke backend as well as account/user manager tools and cross server data syncing tools. Also includes HMTL5/Javascript video with multiple subtitle/language streams.
  • Bespoke file/media management tool built on a bespoke PHP/MySQL backend with user/client/agency messaging tools. Built for scaleability with templated micro sites for individual brands within.
  • A standalone HTML 5 presentation (for distribution to client devices form a central server) with custom Javascript integration to work alongside the client's existing CRM. Designed to run locally and included dynamic pages laid out according to interaction at a local level.
  • Custom built interactive javascript/HTML5 animation for cross-platform/browser support that can be used as a standalone animation for exhibitions etc.
  • An eCommerce site using an existing PHP/MySQL platform. This site also features asynchronous javascript powered quoting tools and calculators. This online store has extensive client and product options and plugs into Sagepay for secure transactions.

Environmental Policy

We recognise that our day to day operations inevitably impact on the environment in a number of ways and we work to reduce any potentially harmful effects of such activities whenever we can.

We have widely adopted a 'paperless' approach to business communications. Our web based IT systems substitute for paper messages and very often travel. We teleconference and video conference at every opportunity and we view conservation of resources and the environment as a basic business necessity.

Specifically, Drum will:

  • Operate a car sharing policy for all staff.
  • Encourage a cycle to work policy for all staff.
  • Ensure that our policies are implemented by all staff and help them understand the relevant aspects of the policy through guidelines, regular communications and action plans.
  • Promote the recycling of office materials and items purchased and use recycled materials wherever possible.
  • Minimise waste in operations and product development, and conserve resources through efficient use and planning.
  • Regard environmental regulations, laws and codes of practice as the minimum standards of environmental practice.
