Our Services

At Root Interactive, we offer a broad range of web services. From standalone design work to complete website builds, we can provide any combination of creative, editorial and technical solutions. We also offer a catalogue of support services, including web hosting, online marketing and training.

Define your brand

Develop confidence in how you communicate who you are and what you do. Create logos and other brand assets.
Your brand is the essence of your organisation. Together, we can explore what your brand means and how you would like to develop it online. We can then help to create a visual identity that perfectly embodies your organisation’s values and vision, and ensure that your message is consistent across all media.

Grow your website

Create a website. We take you step by step from concept through design, build, launch and beyond.
At Root Interactive, we help our clients to flourish. We know how to make a website stand out from the crowd – and keep people coming back to your site. Our passion for design and technical knowledge means that we can advise you on what will work best for your website.

Manage your content

Upgrade your static site to a content managed solution and learn how to look after your website.
If you feel that you are not in control of your website and the content, then upgrading to a content management system such as WordPress or Drupal may be what you are looking for. We’ll help you get started by training you and getting building right from the start so you don’t forget so quickly.

Revive your site

Breathe web vitality into a sad, inactive or dead website, develop skills and become more productive online.
Whatever state your current website is in, we can help you take the very best from it and find ways to transplant, re-seed, tidy up, revitalise and otherwise care for it so that it can spring back to life.

Beanstalk update

Simon and I have decided to cooperate in an endevour to prolong the life of our office beans by transplanting them to the support column in the centre of the room. This comes after the realisation that they are better off there than drifting akimbo in their little pots on our desks. Central support is called for.

It’s catching on!

I’ve not been well of late and this has led me to many delirious outpourings of well intentioned but badly worded social media exercises and artistic sproutings. I forgive myself for lack of grammatical and political correctness and thank Simon Sadler (yes funny that – another Simon) for his kind words of encouragement and am pleased to know that planting my business cards has taken off. His bean plant is doing very well as you will see.

I also planted a Root Interactive bean. I have never seen anything grow as fast as that magical bean; it is truly alive. It reminded me of how everything around and within us is ready and waiting to flourish; we just have to plant the seeds.
