Jargon free Birmingham based Joomla design agency
We don’t believe in talking in techno babble. And whilst we could talk all day about how amazing Joomla is in terms of scalability, FTP layers and remote procedure calls this is going to do very little for your Web Design mojo.
Instead we talk in plain English; our consultant’s will be talking in terms of your business and our developers and designers will work to turn your ideas into solutions without the need for creating confusion. Think of us as Geeks with social skills – the user friendly Joomla designers of Birmingham.
I would thoroughly recommend Opace to any organisation embarking on such a major website project or who needs the kind of hand-holding and innovative support we’ve needed, to help us develop year on year to the point where we’re looking for some high profile wins and good outcomes for Acorns. Dawn Curnyn, Digital Marketing Manager at Acorn’s Children’s Hospice Trust
Joomla websites are what we do
Joomla is a very popular content management system (CMS) platform that allows millions of people around the world to upload, edit and manage their web content from any internet connection. Because of Joomla’s popularity and power, Opace took great pains to become the leading Joomla design agency in Birmingham

Jenny Middleton, Sandwell Compassionate Communities
There’s a whole host of reasons why millions of business owners chose a Joomla developed website for everything from corporate brochures, e-commerce solutions, blogs, portals and more. Yet if you asked them, they’d likely tell you it all boils down to three simple things:
1. Easy to use and great support
Does managing your own website sound a little bit daunting? Don’t panic. Thanks to Joomla’s clear and simple admin-interface and a wealth of features to help you achieve exactly what you need, taking control of your own website has never been easier.
You’ll have free video tutorials along with expert advice, support and training from Opace. We’re confident that you’ll stay with us, but you have the added peace of mind that you’re never tied into one supplier and will never lose your investment. You’ll always have access to support from Joomla experts and from the platform’s ever-growing online community around the world.
2. Saving money
Looking to get the results you need without blowing your budget? Thanks to Joomla’s comprehensive content management system, you maintain your own website, saving the huge expense that other web agencies charge to handle even the most minor updates.
At Opace, we offer some the most competitive pricing on the market for all Joomla design and development work, freeing up your budget to invest in the continued growth of your business.
What’s more is that many of the Joomla plugins, extensions and modules are free or low cost, meaning that whether you are looking to add simple social media links or an feature-rich online store, you can grow your website on a minimal budget.
3. A world of possibilities
The Joomla community already offers thousands of completely free plug-ins to add extra levels of functionality to your site, and countless more are being developed all the time, giving you the freedom and flexibility to enhance and expand your website as your business grows.
Thanks to these plug-ins, there’s no end to the possibilities when it comes to delivering exactly the kind of outstanding service your customers expect from you. Here are some of the websites we can build:
- Corporate sites
- Brochure sites
- E-commerce and online shops
- Video and image based rich media sites
- Portals, intranets and extranets
- Blogs and online publications
- Social websites and community-based forums
Joomla training – turning ordinary people into Joomla Gurus
One of Joomla’s many accreditations is that it’s easy to use. That said, there are elements that we’ll need to run through to help you make the most of your super charged website. Our user friendly Joomla geeks provide frequent training sessions on one-to-one or a group basis. This can be particularly useful for your company’s web master, content creators or if you’re the business owner as it means that you’ll be able to make future changes without the need of an agency and the cost that entails.
Birmingham based Joomla agency with national clients
Whether you’re looking for a small one page website, a multi-language international website or a e-commerce shop filled with thousands of products, Joomla can power it and we can build it.
If you’re local to Birmingham and feel like meeting for a coffee and some jargon free discussion as to what Joomla web design can do for you then feel free to get in touch.
We do of course also work with clients all over the UK , we’ll simply work through phone calls, emails or any other method of communication (we tend to fall down on telepathy however… we’re good, but we’re not that good).
