This project brought out the inner child in us as we developed a pirate theme for Captain Barneys, the new children's play centre in Malton.
Our design captures the excitement of this great new attraction for local children.

So what's all this about?
On May 26th 2011 a new EU directive came into effect that requires website owners to make changes to their sites with regard to how cookies are used to store visitor information. It becomes UK Law on May 26th 2012. It applies all to all websites using cookies and not just commercial ones.
This law called The EU Privacy Law is amended privacy legislation that requires websites to ensure their visitors are fully informed as to which cookies are stored and why they are used on a computer or any other web connected device.
The law is being regulated and overseen in the UK by The Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) and you can read their statement here. They have the power to prosecute non compliant firms and seek fines of up to £500,000
What is a cookie exactly?
Cookies are small text files placed on your computer by a web browser. They are used by almost all websites, for a variety of purposes:
- Analysis of visitor behaviour (known as 'analytics')
- To personalise pages and remember visitor preferences.
- To manage shopping carts in online stores
- To track people across websites and deliver targeted advertising
How does this affect my site and how do I achieve compliance?
The ICO have classified four types of cookies.
Required for your website to function, for example to mark someone as being logged in or to manage their browsing session or to add products to a cart
Non-Essential but harmless
Not essential to core functionality but not used for tracking a user. Examples of this would be cookies that store user preferences such as font-size on a page.
Used to track people but do not provide personally identifiable information, for example Google's Analytics
Used to track people and provide personally identifiable information for advertising and data collection purposes.
Sites produced by us use primarily a mixture of the first three types.
Should I really worry about this?
It's hard to say at the moment what stance the ICO will take in terms of prosecuting sites that don't comply with the new law.
We feel their primary attention will be focused on the sites using type four cookies 'very intrusive' without explaining their purpose to the user. However, it can't be ruled out and therefore we do recommend that site owners look to achieve compliance where possible.
We feel that this should meet the requirements of the ICO and the new law based on the information we have been given so far.
For our existing web design clients, the solution above, can be installed for £45. This includes the code to produce the banner and a tailored privacy page detailing the cookies on your site along with your general privacy information.
If you are not currently a client of ours, we would be happy to conduct a cookie audit of your site and provide a quote.Please contact us for further information.
These are some of the most frequently asked questions about our web design services.
Please don't hesitate to contact us for any more information.
What makes VTSDesign different from other web design companies?
How much does web design cost?
Do I have to pay a deposit?
I want you to design my site, what happens now?
Do you charge for updates?
Are there any hidden costs involved in your web design?
What payment methods do you accept?
How will my site be maintained?
If you design my site, does it have to be hosted with you?
What sort of content should I have on my site?
Do you enter all the site content for me?
Can I have a login feature for all members on my site?
How long does it take for a site to be completed?
Can I supply my own images and background graphics?
Will I be able to see my site as it develops?
What screen resolution will you be designing my site for?
Do I get to see all the code used on my site?
Will my website look the same to every visitor?
Will my site appear on the first pageof search engine listings?
Most of our sites are designed using a content management system.
This means we are able to greatly reduce the cost and timescale of creating your site.
The sites are also far easier to modify afterwards, both by ourselves and by the end user allowing for easy upgrading as your needs change.
We also place great importance in liaising with the client at every step of the project. After all, it is your site and we want to make sure that it looks exactly as you want.
Our support doesn't end when the site is complete either with a dedicated support desk ready to answer any future queries you may have.
Every website that we design is different.
The cost depends primarily on what features you require from the site and how much content you intend to place on it.
To give an idea, the average price for the sites in our portfolio falls in the range of £350 - £500.
An individualised quotation is provided for every enquiry with all aspects of the work detailed so you know exactly what you are paying for.
We include a year's web hosting free of charge with all new design projects.
We only ask for a 15% deposit if you are not using our hosting services.
If you will be hosting the site with us, then no deposit is required.
Once a design enquiry has been submitted to us, then one of our designers will contact you to arrange a consultation.
Usually, we come to meet you at your workplace or home but the meeting can be over the phone if preferred.
We will then go through all your requirements and explain how they could be presented on a web site.
After the consultation, we will produce a detailed quotation including a full timescale for the project.
Usually, there is no charge for minor updates such as minor cosmetic adjustments.
For major changes such as new features, or a change in the way the site looks, we will issue a fixed quotation based on our estimation of how long the work will take.
No, none at all
You pay one charge for the design work as quoted
The first year's web hosting is free. Subsequent years are charged at the current price for your hosting package (Learn more..)
We accept the following payment methods
- Online Credit or Debit Card
- Bank transfer
Most of our sites have a built in text editor allowing you to make changes in the same way as using a word processor. There are guides available on our site to show you how to do this.
You are also able to add and remove pages as you require.
Alternatively, we can make modifications and update content for you if you would prefer that (a small charge may be applicable depending on the volume of changes required).
If you require a major new feature or structure to your site in the future, then we are happy to provide a new quotation for your requirements
No, we are happy to work with your site at other hosting locations.
However, we prefer you to use our hosting services as this makes it far easier for us to design and maintain the site.
We offer the first year's hosting free of charge to all new design clients.
This is entirely up to you but we are happy to offer guidance.
Most sites have as a minimum..
- Home page
- About us
- Pages detailing main services/products
- Latest news
- Contact us
You can then add features for your visitors such as message board forums, E-Commerce, photo galleries and other interactive features.
Our sites are designed to be expandable so you can always add more features as required at a later date.
Yes, unless you want to enter it yourself. During our initial meeting with you, we establish how the content will be supplied, e.g. in a Word document (preferred)or handwritten notes etc.
If you are using our E-Commerce solution, then we can enter your products for you if required for an additional charge per product.
This is a standard feature on all our sites.
You can limit access to individual features for each member as required.
You can also specify that new members to your site have to be approved before they can become registered members.
This depends entirely on the features that you have requested and how quickly the content is supplied.
As an example, a straightforward site can be done within a week if all content is provided before work begins.
At the start of the project, we will issue a timescale based on the quotation supplied.
You can view the progress of your site at any time from the link we will give you.
Yes of course
We will endeavour to fit them into the design of the site with your full input as to how you would like them to appear.
If required, we can source and insert stock images for you.
We will give you a link where you can see every stage of your site's development. We think this is very important to ensuring we get the design exactly how you want it.
The site will only go live when you are completely happy with the final preview copy.
We target most of our sites at 1024 by 768 which is what the majority of people are browsing at currently.
However, the target resolution can be set to whatever suits your requirements.
We adhere to open source policy. All code that we write is open for you to see and modify as required.
Once the project is complete and payment has been received, then the site and all code belongs to you with the exception of any licensed third party components used.
We test all our work on the following browsers
- Internet Explorer 6,7 and 8
- Firefox 2 + 3
- Opera 9
- Google Chrome 1 + 2
Obviously, there is a slight difference in appearance from browser to browser.
We endeavour to ensure however that these differences do not spoil the look of a site in any way.
When browser updates are released, we carry out testing of our sites to ensure that they continue to work in the way that they are supposed to.
We work with you to identify the key text relating to your site and the target audience that you want to appeal to.
We then build this text into each page of your site ensuring that the major search engines pick up on them
It is impossible to guarantee that you will get front page listing on a search engine without paying for a sponsored advert. However, with the right combination of keywords, your site will stand a good chance of featuring highly.
We can also discuss setting up sponsored ads so that you are guaranteed to get a front page listing if the right combination of search words are entered.
This is a sector where first impressions make a real difference, both for the potential student and for their parents.
Following several successful projects over many years , we have gained a real understanding with regard to what a school site needs to succeed.
Easy for different users to maintain..
This type of site is likely to have multiple users involved in updating from different areas of school life such as individual teaching departments.
Each user has their own account and all pages that are available for edit, feature the same easy to use text editor to allow for quick updates.
We use a comprehensive access rights system to ensure that administrators only get access to the areas of the site which they are responsible for editing. This means everyone can work together without conflicting each other's work.
This can be configured on a page, category or section basis for each user.
Keeping parents informed.
Latest school news from each department can be displayed automatically on a feed on the front page to ensure that everyone is up-to-date with current information.
School newsletters can be added to a download area and an email can be sent to parents whenever there is a new addition. This helps cut out the issue of important newsletters never making it home and if the parents choose to opt out of paper communications, can help reduce your paper usage.
A newsflash system can also be set up allowing urgent news to be sent by email or text to parents in the event of issues such as the school being closed due to adverse weather conditions.
Extensive use of imagery and video..
Imagery and videos play a very important part in a school website.
By using multiple images from as many different areas of school life as possible, we aim to create a true replication of what the school can offer. New galleries can be easily uploaded at any point whenever a new event occurs.
Using multimedia resources is also a good way to get students interested in contributing to the school website.
Videos can also be embedded into any part of our websites along with virtual tours of a school site.
Before using any student imagery on a site, we verify that the relevant permissions have been obtained for the media to be used.
Secure download area.
We can set up secure download area in the site. This is unique to each parent and allows them to obtain a username and password from the school, log-in and access their child's reports or other important correspondence relating to them.
This facility can be used for pupils to download coursework or training materials relevant to them from their teachers if required.
VTSDesign is committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. Should we ask you to provide certain information by which you can be identified when using this website, then you can be assured that it will only be used in accordance with this privacy statement.
VTSDesign may change this policy from time to time by updating this page. You should check this page from time to time to ensure that you are happy with any changes. This policy is effective from 15/05/2012

We will hold intellectual copyright of any material, including any source code and original images created for the client until payment of the final invoice. At this time it will become the property of the client.
2. Clients Responsibilities with Regard to Copyright:
In situations where the client provides images, text and animations for their website they are legally responsible for ensuring that this material does not infringe any copyright. Certain images provided by us in the construction of the website may have been purchased under licence from stock image suppliers. These images are generally only licensed for use on a single website and may not be used in publicity material. The website owner is legally responsible for ensuring that this does not happen. If you wish to use any images from the site for other purposes please contact us for clarification.
3. Limitation of liability/indemnification:
Neither party will be liable to the other for special, indirect or consequential damages incurred or suffered by the other arising as a result of or related to the performance our work, whether in contract or otherwise, even if the other has been advised of the possibility of such loss or damages. Our total liability under these conditions with respect to the work, regardless of cause or theory of recovery, will not exceed the total amount of fees paid by the client to us.
4. Search Engine Promotion:
We are not by default responsible for the client’s on-going web site promotion. If the client requires the site to be promoted on an ongoing basis a separate contract must be agreed. The order in which websites are ranked in the search results is controlled by the search engines. We will endeavour to ensure that your site is successful in the search rankings through various methods. However, search engines frequently change their retrieval methods and we cannot be held responsible for future rankings unless otherwise agreed.
Should the client wish to cancel a project at any point during the process they shall remain liable for the work that has taken place and shall be invoiced accordingly.
The price quoted to the client is for the work agreed on the quotation only. Should the client decide that changes are required after work on the website commences, then we will accept these changes with the provision that additional charges may have to be negotiated.
7. Advance Payment:
We ask for a minimum deposit of £100 or 10% of the project value if that is greater. We reserve the right to request a higher deposit in certain situations.
8. Payment terms:
Payment is currently accepted via credit or debit card at our online billing site. We also accept payment via bank transfer. If a site is hosted with us, then payment is due upon the site going ‘live’. If payment is not received by this point, then we reserve the right to suspend the site until payment is received in full. If the site is hosted externally, then payment is due in full before the code and site design can be released for upload to your hosting server.
9. Future work:
The website is provided to and accepted by the client as a fully functioning, completed work. By agreeing for the site to go ‘live’, the client is accepting that they are fully satisfied with the site. Any future structural or design changes to the site may require the issuing of a new quotation.
10. Compliance with Ecommerce, Accessibility or Other Regulations:
We design websites in accordance with the client’s specifications. It is the client’s responsibility to ensure that the website and its content comply with current regulations. We cannot accept responsibility for any failure to comply with regulations related to accessibility, selling online or regulations related to a specific business or trade. We recommend that where compliance related to any website or business is complex it may be necessary for the client to take legal advice from their solicitor
11. Hacking, defacing, viruses and spyware
Hacking, defacing, virus, database and spyware injection attempts are an unfortunately common part of internet life. Whilst we build your site to be as secure as possible and we have a vast array of monitoring tools for sites hosted with us, we can accept no legal responsibility for any damages to reputation or monetary loss caused by illegal activity or the actions of others once it has been put live. If the site is hosted with us, then we will endeavour to fix the damage or restore from one of our nightly backups free of charge. If you have chosen to host our design for you at your own choice of external hosting location, then any repair work will be chargeable and a quotation will be supplied.
