We adore beautiful design, and we strive to create stunning, captivating and memorable experiences. However, we know that for a design to be effective it must have utility, and it must meet customer and business objectives. A design that doesn't do these things simply doesn't work. Effective design (the best kind of design) is user-centric, effortlessly easy to use, clear, and engaging – a truly satisfying user experience tailored to your target audience and absolutely on brand.
Honeystone uses a mixture of graphical design tools, such as Adobe Illustrator, and ‘in-browser design’. Every project goes through a planning phase starting with requirements gathering, requirements specification and information architecture. This lays the bedrock for your lo-fidelity wireframes, the beginning of the design phase. These wireframes will help us to determine the location of information, and its relative importance within your website or application. We follow this up with graphical designs incorporating key components, and in-browser design to fill in the gaps. Our goal is to understand your brand so well that we can carry it thought even the smallest of tasks without a second thought.
UI / UX
User experience and accessibly are at the heart of our designs. We strive to achieve both visually stunning and intuitive user interfaces.
Your brand is the embodiment of your business and philosophy. It communicates more to your customers than anything-else. It needs to be right.
Responsive design can adjust & adapt to any device, from a smartwatch, up to a cinema screen.
Years of experience creating traditional print campaigns.
We take an iterative approach to projects, allowing you to make decisions, and adjust to changing requirements, as the project progresses. We utilise version control, issue tracking, test driven development, pair programming and code review to ensure a scaleable and stable codebase.
Honeystone uses modern software development practices and principles to deliver high quality, stable and testable software. We primarily focus on OO (Object Oriented) languages/approaches, but have experience in other paradigms as well.

We will not work with WordPress.
Completely custom server-side applications, such as CMS & eCommerce, are standard fare. We have decades of experience writing bespoke software solutions.
We maintain the highest standards and practices. Everything we build goes though QA checklist, static analysis, unit testing & code review.
