Berkshire Web Design and Ecommerce

Web Design Berkshire - The Swedish Ship Gotheborg v2015001

The Swedish Ship Gotheborg

We worked very closely with the The Swedish Ship Gotheborg (SOIC) team to design a website that is both eye catching and does justice to the amazing experience and fascinating history of The Swedish Ship Gotheborg.

Additional to a wealth of user content, the SOIC website integrates live GPS tracking of the ship, SOIC's social feeds, and includes multilingual options allowing for viewing of the SOIC website in Swedish, Chinese and English.

We designed the SOIC website using the WordPress Content Management System (CMS). The WordPress CMS allows the SOIC team to login to the website and update copy, layout and images. When completely new page designs are required we add these to the WordPress system allowing for the SOIC team to continually update the website with fresh and unique content.

Milbury Contractors

We designed the Milbury Contractors website using Responsive Web Design (RWD), this means that the website and its content can be predictably delivered to website visitors irrespective of device. No matter if the website is being viewed on a notebook’s browser, a tablet or smartphone, visitors can easily view and navigate the website.

When designing the website we made use of the Google Maps API allowing for geo-location of construction projects on Google Maps across the UK. The design of the website is further enhanced by the use of MyFonts custom web typefaces.

The Milbury Contractors website is based on the WordPress Content Management System (CMS) using Advanced Custom Fields. Combined these allow the team at Milbury to login, add and update projects, map locations, photo galleries, budgets, clients, and thumbnails.

Web Design Berkshire - Shirazeh Houshiary v2015001

Shirazeh Houshiary

We worked very closely with Shirazeh Houshiary when designing the Visual Artist’s online portfolio and gallery website. Shirazeh’s design for the website was based around the unique concept of creating an online presence which as much as possible replicated the immersive and intimate feeling of visiting a real-world gallery.

When designing the website with Shirazeh we focused on developing a modest layout; designed to engage the user with the artworks and create a world where you find yourself slowed down to a more thoughtful pace.

Seed Staff

We designed the Seed Staff website to promote Seed Staff’s services to the UK festival and event industry, and act as a recruitment hub for their event staff and volunteer recruitment. When designing the Seed Staff website we also worked with Seed Staff to setup a bespoke version of our PAAM software which allows interested applicatnts to setup and account and apply for Seed Staff’s staff and volunteer vacancies.

Developed to run on the WordPress Content Management System (CMS), the website’s copy, photos and layout can be quickly and easily updated by the team at Seed Staff no matter if they’re in the office or working onsite at an event.
