Scotia Welding, Lauder Many business website design briefs make use of terms such as “smart”, “professional” and “trustworthy”, but that doesn’t have to mean “boring” too. By adding one or two design elements it’s possible to lift a business website so it becomes visually stimulating and leaves a mark on site visitors. In this instance, Scottish Borders Website Design used a photo of blue sparks flaring from a welders torch as the background to the website. The intensity of light from the torch highlights the logo, and a semi-transparent page edge adds depth to the site design. Visit the new Scotia Welding & Fabrication website to take a look!
McGeer Employment Mediation, Lauder Following on from the logo design for McGeer Employment Mediation, Scottish Borders Website Design have just launched the new brochure website. The site design itself follows on from the calm, balanced and trustworthy logo styling.

Trabrownhill Therapy, Lauder Website visitors are fickle and very quick to decide if they’ve chosen the right website. So if you’re still reading this, the general rule is that a web page should explain the purpose of a business and provide the visitor with the information they want within 3 clicks of the mouse, or within just 3 seconds. With such stringent requirements, it is essential to paint a picture of the core service offered. Why paint a picture? Because people read the meaning of a picture (or photo) faster than plain text. Achieving the correct feel for a business site can be achieved with clever use of colour, style and page layout, but sometimes a photo says it all. After the creation of the Trabrownhill Therapy logo, it was critical that the new site design instantly portray the relief offered by the range of services provided. Thanks to the myriad of excellent stock photography sites now available, it didn’t take too long to track the right photo down, and it instantly made an impact on the look and feel of the Trabrownhill Therapy website; blue sky, warmth, positive, happy and stress free.
McGeer Employment Mediation, Lauder Employment mediation involves a third party trying to help two other parties resolve a dispute. This logo design needed to be professional and trustworthy, but also visually represent how mediation works.
