Do Have a Look at some of our Recent Work

Portfolio

Styles are changing all the time and here in this brief portfolio you’ll find some examples of our recent work.  The box design of old has pretty well gone now with websites stretching across the screen and the vertical menus have given way to horizontal menus with either sub menus or sometimes ‘mega’ menus depending on the number of pages.

Alongside each image are some details of the company and perhaps what inspired that particular design but in truth there’s no better way of determining the quality of a website than to look at the actual website itself.  So just click on the image and the site will open in a new window.  We are confident you will like what you see.

Great Massingham Community Cars Scheme

We first crteated a website for this charity car scheme some five years ago but like all things, time marches on and the site was looking a little dated.  Nevertheless, over the years we had been prompt in servicing all the required updates and were delighted when we were chosen again as the preferred supplier to create a modern up to date web-site and this is the result.   This is a Premium Plus Site.

Kass & Beard Energy Consultants

Kass & Beard are Energy Consultants evaluating new builds as well as established properties both Domestic and Commercial.  This long established business wanted a fairly simple site that would clearly set out their services in a clear, cleancut and professional manner as a replacement to their present site.  This is a Premium Site

The Dog House – Protrain

This is a fast expanding business providing training for those wishing to either start a career in Dog Grooming or at the other end of the scale wanting the know how for grooming their own dog.  Until now the web site was a DIY one but the owners were looking for something a lot more professional to take them into the future.  Following some 90 minutes of tuition the owner is now fully capable of editing the site herself.  This is a Premium Extra site.

Stevie Spud – Children’s Entertainer

Steveie Spud wanted a new site that would incorporate his two sites currently running.  The site needed to be colourful and attractive not to children but to adults who are the paying customers.  It also needed to appeal to head teachers at schools and other group leaders for organisations such as cubs and brownies.  Steve said it’s exactly what he was after and the current level of enquiries shows it is doing its job.   This is a Premium Plus Site

Special Occasions Catering

 

Special Occasions Catering is situated in Kings Lynn and is well know in the area for its expertise in off-site catering but the current website, though good in its day was no longer reflecting SOC’s modern approach.  So we were tasked in giving a new bright clean look at a budgeted price and this is what we came up with.  No stock images here – all genuine and supplied by the owner.  This is a Premium Plus site

Prestige Travel Norfolk

We were asked to replace a somewhat ageing boxed design website with something more modern and more impactive for this firm that specialises in Airport Transfers.  Airport Transfers are in fact an Airport Taxi Service that specialises in getting the customer to and from the airport without delays.  Photos were taken and this very fine site was the result.  The website also covers the other services of Corporate, Private and Wedding car hire.  This is a Premium Plus site

Norwich Stoves & Home Improvements

The original site for this client was one we created to a budget some while ago but since then the business has grown and the client now wanted something more elaborate and up to date with content that would fill the screen and give greater impact to the visitor. The site we created can be seen here. It’s clean, fresh and right up to date performing well on all devices – desktop, laptop, tablets and mobiles. We’ve also given it an SSL certificate to ensure better security by encrypting all communications between website and customer.  This pretty Premium Plus site makes a good addition to our recent work portfolio.  (Click the image to view this Norwich based site.)

Lawn Wizard

This Lawn Wizard site is a secondary business to this firm’s main site.  We did the main site last year and are delighted that they have returned for this site.  This is one of our premium sites constructed on WordPress to make it really feature rich.  Mobile friendly but best viewed on a computer/Mac as Apple mobile is unable to support all its varied features. Nice Premium Extra site to feature within our portfolio.  Viewing recommended.

Carbrooke School

With the existing site looking quite old we were asked to produce a very primary looking site for this primary school.  Bright colours and cartoon characters were the order of the day.  The content of this extensive 40 page site is handled by the teaching staff using our very easy to handle content management system.

TCF Sheet Metal

TCF is a 35 year established sheet metal operation turning the base product into anything from railings to staircases, from balconies to car plinths.  They needed this site to set out the many different products they manufacture.  As they say, send them a drawing and they will make it.  This is one of our Premium Extra WordPress sites and note the https address.  We have given this site a free forever SSL certificate (normally costing up to £55 per annum) to ensure end to end encryption of all communication between visitor and the site.  Google gives a higher ranking to sites with SSL certificates.  Click the image to visit the site (Based in Attleborough.)

 

 

 

Maya Wellbeing

Maya Wellbeing needed a site that reflected a positive view on life.  With its colourful happy front page images it really does do that and makes a nice feature site for our recent portfolio work.  But it also contains videos too, made by the site owner where she is able to spell out clearly the service that she offers.  She also manages the content and again we are here to assist should she get stuck.  This is one of our premium WordPress sites.

Imperial Care Homes

The brief here was to replace and combine the three existing and out dated sites with a site that was a lot more modern, while retaining the stable secure look applicable to a care home.  There are three care homes in the group and all are represented here.

Thetford Funeral Service

Thetford Funeral Services is Thetford’s longest established funeral director but had no website.  It’s a family firm and with the older generation family member handing over control to a younger generation so the need for a website was established but with a brief to be modern while being soft and sympathetic.  This was achieved by taking interior images which reflect the modern along with the branded blue butterfly and then keeping the site to a white and light blue colour scheme.  Feel free to click the image to view the site.

Clayland Architects

Architects have their own ideas when it comes to design and we very much followed their direction when it came to the design of this website.  The site started with just a few pages but is now quite extensive with 40 or more pages, and more being planned.  Each of their projects has a page of its own depicting both text and plans and they are very happy that the website has been the source of much work coming into their offices.  A different look site to display on our portfolio page but an example of what can be done if required.  You can view the site by clicking the image.  (Based in Mundford.)

 

Chapman Autotrim

Chapman Autotrim is a craftsman led operation that required a site that would reflect the highly professional work that they carry out.  The business thrives on attention to detail and the website reflects that fact.  With the home page sporting an image stretching right across the screen, no car enthusiast could fail to be impressed by the image which depicts the very fine work carried out by the team at this interior trim specialist.  (Based at Attleborough)

Alan Smith & Associates Ltd

Alan Smith & Associates has three business streams and the requirement for this site was to ensure equal value be given to each business stream.  This is a premium site that is quite feature rich.  It has bold images on each of the pages which was as specified by the commercial director in order to be both impactive and to hold attention while at the same time being informative. This site intentionally gives solidity to the company.  The company serves other businesses and this site shows the strength and backup that can be provided by the extensive quality of the team that they have.  (Click the image to view the site.

Saham Studio

The partners at Saham Studio were running two sites, one which was excellent at displaying images but was lacking when it came to text.  Many photographic sites have this problem.  A second site was set up which was great for text but not flexible enough when it came to uploading and deleting images.  Our brief was to come up with a site that could handle both and this is the result with which the partners are delighted.  It has a full content management system which means after an hour’s training they can now handle updating the site themselves.  (Click the image to go to the site and see for yourself.  Based in Saham Toney)

 

 

Jacks Electrical

A starter website with just three pages but ideal for this one man business and we did not try to sell a bigger site. The business covers a radius of approximately 25 miles around Watton. Included on the Contact page is a map of the area covered.

The services page clearly outlines all of the services covered while the home page makes the most of the fact that this is a one-man business that provides prompt affordable service.

The colours have been carefully chosen to reflect a clean, attractive and vibrant look. Click the image for a closer look.
