Your Website, Your Control
Using the latest web technologies, we create modern, mobile-friendly websites that will help you get the best out of your online presence and engage your users, putting your information at their fingertips.
All our sites are built in WordPress to put you in control of your content, with built-in Search Engine Optimisation to make it as easy as possible for search engines to read & categorise your site. All you need is a web-browser and you can edit virtually anything on your website with an easy WYSIWYG editor.
With mobile devices now outnumbering standard PCs, the web is on the move. Our sites are built using Responsive CSS, adapting to the size of the user’s device, looking great on both large & small screens.
From an iPhone to an iPad, MacBook to iMac, text & images remain crisp and user interface elements remain easy to access via mouse or touch.
See below a few of our recently completed sites. We’ve been busy!
Simon C Roberts
Photographer Simon C Roberts approached me initially to update the code and functionality on his current website. It soon became apparent that (at 6 years old) the code was beyond repair.
We built a bespoke, responsive WordPress theme from scratch, basing the new design on the original site but with several modern tweaks. An auto-scrolling homepage with fullscreen images showcases Simon’s latest news, fullscreen slideshows effectively demonstrate Simon’s latest projects, while ajax-based content loading keeps the site loading quickly and effectively.
We also migrated a number of Simon’s websites to a more modern, php7-based web host, increasing the sites’ loading speeds noticeably.
Family Support Work
Ape Creative had been working with a Brighton-based family support charity, Family Support Work, to redesign their website. The old site was beginning to show its age, so the new layout implemented configurable slideshows, on-scroll animations applied to page elements when they are visible onscreen and a new, vibrant and engaging design.
We built a bespoke WordPress theme, migrating content from the old site and building a back-end editor which multiple, reusable, blocks of editable content.
Susanna Cassam Music Tuition
After her website was hacked, and an unfortunate hosting incident, Susanna needed to update and rebuild her website expeditiously to avoid losing accrued Google search relevance. We built her a responsive WordPress theme with fully editable content and galleries, with Staff Biogs and an easily updatable blog.
Belinda asked us to update the layout on her previous website, which was lacking modern features like mobile responsiveness and search engine optimisation. Keen to retain a simple, uncluttered layout, we built a responsive WordPress theme with easily-updatable galleries and product colourways. As the site is updated with every new season, being in control of her content was extremely important.
Peter from BikeFest Club approached us needing a website to publicise BikeFest South, a new motorcycle event in the South East of the United Kingdom. We designed & built a responsive theme with scrolling-based animations and a background video header, integrating with TicketSource to allow users to purchase subscriptions to BikeFest Club, allowing them access to the main (members only) event.
Soul & Surf
Expanding from India to Sri-Lanka, Ed approached us to build a website he could edit and expand with his business. Integrating with Beds24 for bookings, we built a responsive WordPress theme based on Ed’s beautiful and extremely thorough designs. That’s what you get for working with a graphic design legend!
The new site allows Ed and his staff to edit all content, adding Yoga & Surf Retreats in multiple countries and Pop-Ups around the world. They can advertise staff positions at all locations, soliciting applications and CVs from users.
Juliette approached us with a simple layout, wanting a website for a new business venture so she was keen to keep build costs down. We built a WordPress theme with dynamic content loading and a simple blog system. She now has a fast and mobile responsive web presence to show potential clients and showcase her latest work.
Steve approached us to rebuild his ageing WordPress website, which had become increasingly difficult to update. Based on his requirements, we designed and built a responsive WordPress theme, with a simple fly-out menu and subtle animations to bring a feeling of interactivity to the site. The homepage displays a fullscreen video shot by Steve, with content divided simply into Matter (sculpture) and Light (film).
Another returning client, Sophie brought us an updated layout for the latest revision of her blog. Designed by Caz from Making Waves Creative, we built a responsive, dynamically loading theme, with support for users to comment on posts and sign up to Sophie’s mailing list, increasing engagement with her users.
We built an array of sidebar widgets to showcase posts and videos from around the site, and to bring attention to the interior design workshops Sophie runs.
Gravity & Levity
Gravity & Levity, an Aerial Dance company, wanted to refresh their website with a modern and clean look. Their previous site (also built by us) was several years old so was lacking modern features like mobile responsiveness and dynamic content loading. G&L wanted a facility for their peers to upload new Aerial Dance events to be listed on the site, and for users to be able to sign up to their MailChimp mailing list.
We designed a new layout, with fullscreen slideshows, embedded YouTube/Vimeo videos and dynamically loaded page content. The new fold-in menu replaced a navigation system which had over time become convoluted and contradictory. G&L are now in full control of all their content and the site is much easier to navigate.
Chateau La Cour
The owners of Chateau La Cour wanted to refresh their website, which was last built almost 10 years ago. They wanted a new, elegant design to reflect the luxury accommodation at the Chateau, the ability to update their site with new rates & opening times and to look great on mobile devices.
We built a custom wordpress theme with full-screen slideshows, multiple page layout options and easy-to-edit image galleries.
Peter needed a simple & responsive website to promote a new business venture offering support to clients wanting to extend their properties.
We designed & built a wordpress theme to allow Peter to add new projects upon completion, using a responsive design for mobile users.
Vine Street Studios
The client requested their current WordPress theme be updated & modernised, with a more visual layout and better behaviour on mobile devices. We built a modern theme from scratch, using their current logo & layout as a foundation, including a full-width, responsive slideshow on the homepage to showcase their interior design shots. Back-end editing was also improved, with some outdated and convoluted functions replaced with easy to use content editors and galleries.
Sophie Robinson required a site to showcase her work as an interior designer. Chris from Design by Channel supplied the layout, a single-page scrolling site with dynamic project displays and fullscreen image slideshow, which we built using WordPress.
Sophie & Daniel
Sophie Robinson required a simple, single-page scrolling website as an information resource for a new BBC TV show. Chris from Design by Channel supplied the layout and we built the site using WordPress.
Six Seven Photographic
Six Seven, working with designer Hana Stevenson, wanted a site to get the best out of their images. With fullscreen slideshows and per-photographer categorisation, we built the site with Galleria and WordPress to provide a user-editable, mobile responsive visual treat.
Studio Makgill updated the layout of TV Wine Critic Olly Smith’s website, to modernise and mobile-optimise the site. We built the responsive theme with rolling slideshows and popup image/video galleries, all user editable through WordPress.
James Read Tan
Studio Makgill brought us this elegant template, which we built with WordPress, integrating with James’ current commerce platform. Through the site, James is able to update his video tanning-tips and share his expert knowledge of the industry.
Neil from Imageynation brought us a layout to bring ultra-realistic CGI imagery to the web. Why pay for a photo/video shoot when you can create exactly what you want? We built the initial site, with a redesign a year later, adding an interactive CGI quiz to test the user’s eye for detail.
the flintman company
David Smith from the flintman company wanted a visually engaging site to act as both an information resource on flint & stone construction, but also to showcase the beautiful flint creations his company has built. Fullscreen slideshows scale from large to small devices, with all content and galleries editable by David, all thanks to WordPress
Gemma was beginning a new business venture as a freelance graphic designer and needed a website to attract new clients. A beautiful touch from her design is the embedded video of a feeding hummingbird fading into the page.
Charlie wanted a visually striking site to would reflect the dynamic nature of his profession, teaching and exploring dance & physical movement. The site enables Charlie to showcase events and update his blog, all with the simplicity and built-in SEO advantages that come with WordPress
Ali from Keeki wanted a simple, clean and cost-effective site to showcase her illustration and craft blog. We built the site using WordPress and the jQuery Masonry layout to provide beautifully laid out image galleries, with a minimum of administration required by Ali.
We worked with Paul Farrington of Studio Tonne to produce this site for an Italian artisan shoe manufacturer. The site was designed to showcase their current ranges of shoes, bags & accessories, all editable by the client using WordPress. Particularly interesting was the user-draggable dots to represent stockists on a world map, again all positioned by the client.
Ark brought us an extensively designed layout, wanting an engaging website to showcase their spectacular loft conversions & building renovations. We built a responsive WordPress theme, able to adapt to any screen or device, with rolling slideshows and before/after popup image galleries.
Sara requested a modernisation of her current website, with particular attention to be paid to preserving her current search engine rankings. We designed & built a fresh, modern and responsive layout using WordPress, keeping the Sara in control of her own content. Using 301 redirects from her old website and content administration techniques, we maintained her excellent position with Google’s search listings.
