Robmarine Shipping, London Following on from the successful launch of the new EPIC website, Robmarine Shipping (one of the EPIC members) contacted Scottish Borders Website Design and requested an overhaul of their brochure site. The new Robmarine website provides details on services offered, clients and partners, but the bulk of the new site is password protected and provides selected members of the shipping industry with up to date stowaway data, charts and news.
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.
Danny Frank, Glasgow Every now and then a website brief will come along that allows for a highly creative and stylised website design. The new Danny Frank music website was inspired by Danny’s country and western music and his love of westerns. Following on from the design of his logo, Scottish Borders Website Design created the site to look like an aged poster pinned to an old wooden wall; a look that instantly connects the site design to the music it promotes. Danny didn’t want to feature in the main banner photo, so a stock photo was selected to complete the scene and various Photoshop techniques were used to distress and age the photo and web page. Danny’s feedback: “I think you’ve done an excellent job (work of art!) it is just what I wanted and I am very pleased with all aspects of your design.”
EPIC, London The new EPIC website launched today featuring the European group’s charter, code of conduct and quality policy. Each page makes use of a related shipping photo, over which sits an illustrated map of Europe that highlights the various office locations. Scottish Borders Website Design have also aided EPIC with additional marketing material, such as PowerPoint presentations that feature design elements consistent with the new brochure website, email newsletter templates and printed invites for shipping events and meetings. Whether presenting a design online, by email or offline, consistency allows for quick recognition of the brand.
Borders Wedding Car Hire, Galashiels The new Borders Wedding Car Hire website launched earlier today. The amazing Bentley Arnage is the star of the show, and Scottish Borders Website Design based the colour scheme of the site on the interior and exterior car colours. The font selection ties in with the wedding theme, and as the photos of the car say everything, the site makes use of Flash to allow interested parties to browse through photos and get in touch to make a booking.
J&S Anderson, Hawick Having struggled to find reliable hosting and a designer willing to keep their website up to date, J&S Anderson contacted Scottish Borders Website Design for assistance. The brief for this new website design was for a no nonsense online catalogue showcasing products for sale, with a search facility and contact details. As requested, the site pretty much does “exactly what it says on the tin”!
Westend Garage, St. Boswells Scottish Borders Website Design launched the new Westend Garage website last week, right on time for a series of adverts on Radio Borders. Most clients rely on traditional search engine optimisation and marketing once a site has gone live in order to help build up website traffic and Page Rank. In this instance, the use of adverts on Radio Borders really got the new Westend Garage website noticed quickly (not to mention considerable interest in Scottish Borders Website Design as a happy consequence)!
Cheviot Gardening Services, Coldstream Having tried and given up with a website provided by Yell, Cheviot Gardening Services came to Scottish Borders Website Design with a request for a clean, professional website that would help promote their Borders gardening services online, as well as provide them with valuable feedback on site performance.
