Web Development and Site Design

Web Development and Site Design

If you are looking to build a new website, or to replace an existing design, Polynomial has the expertise to create the right solution for you. By using standards compliant and search engine aware techniques, your site can make the right impression. In a world where the Internet reaches beyond the PC onto mobile phones, tablets, and into the living room, you or your company’s web presence is becoming increasingly vital.

With experience building single page designs (like this site) through to enterprise level websites (see case studies) and integrating with social media such as Facebook and Twitter or payment platforms such as SagePay and PayPal, your requirements can be achieved. From a static brochure site to a content managed blog, from an e-commerce driven storefront to a media rich portfolio, please get in contact to discuss your ideas or needs.

The job isn’t finished the day you go live: your site should be a platform, ready to move or extend wherever your industry or circumstances take you. Focusing on web standards makes keeping your site current easy and provides a solid foundation to build on, while also contributing to natural search engine rankings. Our services also extend to website hosting and server management, providing a complete service when required.

Intranets and
Business Tools

Intranets and Business Tools

Writing bespoke tools tailored to the needs of a business is at the core of Polynomial. With custom built intranet and extranet sites, you can harness the power and connectivity afforded by the Internet to make running your company easier while improving your customers’ experience. Replacing manual processes with automated systems that are less error-prone frees staff to spend their time more effectively, where they are truly needed.

Instead of having to pick an off the shelf product and mould your business around it, we believe in creating software that works the way you do. Whether an individual or a corporation, startup or established, the ‘one size fits all’ mentality of off-the-shelf packages doesn’t have to apply to you. As your business is unique, so are your requirements; please get in contact and we can discuss how Polynomial can help make your business even better.

The sky is the limit with what is achievable on a modern intranet or extranet. Some of our recent work includes:

  • Customer management
  • Order tracking
  • Reporting
  • Invoicing
  • Stock control
  • Project life cycle

Combining an intranet with a website unlocks even greater possibilities.

Consultancy and Subcontracting

Consultancy and Subcontracting

Polynomial offers consultancy services for businesses who find that our experience could be of value. We can help whether you need a specialist to aid advertising and interviewing for a development position, want to formulate the IT roadmap for your organisation or simply need specialised expertise for a meeting.

If you are a web design or development company and have either excess work or a specific project that you feel Polynomial can help with, please get in contact so that we can discuss your exact requirements. Working directly with your organisation, or with your clients as an extension of your business, can both be accommodated for.

If you require any of the services we offer, work can be carried out at an hourly rate, daily rate or on a per-project basis. When working on small scale work at an hourly rate work is charged in 15 minute units so that you aren’t overcharged for short jobs.


Steve Vallis

Born and raised in the Somerset countryside, I am now based in Bristol, south west England. Aside from my interest in computers and programming, I also enjoy travelling (particularly anywhere in Eastern Europe), photography (preferably combined with the former), reading (particularly Russian literature), red wine and Guinness (but not mixed together). Between work projects I'm also studying towards a BA in English Literature with the Open University.

Skills & Experience

I began programming in 1989 and have since gained 23 years professional experience in the web development industry. Before switching to online development, I spent many years writing application software. My background in traditional programming techniques, which underpins a deep understanding of web standards, has allowed me to employ online technology effectively for a variety of industries. I have worked with toy shops through to multinational banks, and with sole traders through to blue chip corporations.


I currently write new software in ASP.NET C#, Microsoft SQL Server 2012, HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript and jQuery using Git source code management. I have gained experience in many popular APIs and frameworks by staying alongside the latest developments in web technology. I also have considerable experience with ASP Classic and older versions of SQL Server for legacy support. Additionally, I have extensive experience managing and maintaining both Windows and Linux servers.

Case Studies

Land Logic

As a supplier of high quality local timber, Land Logic required a simple but effective website to provide their web presence. With an original design by The Paper Crane our role was to take the project from an image to a search engine aware site. Utilising media queries for a simple responsive design produces a highly accessible site, while under the hood microdata is leveraged for optimum organic search engine listing positions.


Peopleriver is a social networking platform with a focus on awareness and positive change. We were approached by the client with a project specification and a visual design. It was then our responsibility to translate the client's concept from paper to a fully interactive website. This included database design, all server-side and client-side code, and PayPal integration in addition to hosting and maintenance duties.

Blue Sky Media

Blue Sky is a producer of high-end digital media and events based in Cheltenham. We were originally asked to investigate a small issue with embedded videos on their website. Their Wordpress based site now runs on a custom theme, tuned to their specific requirements and we have consulted on many aspects of their internet presence. We have also supplied a bespoke email template for a popular commercial email broadcast system.

We have been subcontracted to perform services for clients such as Microsoft Digital Advertising Solutions, HSBC, Somerset County Council, Bank of Scotland (HBOS) and Glaxo Smith Klein.
