Busy Start To 2015

It’s been a busy start to 2015 with three new sites built in January and February.

January started with a new website for Fife based Audyan Blinds, a simple but elegant one page design acting as a presence site and allowing testimonials and customer contact.

In February we were contacted by Yorkshire based RSPBA piping adjudicator, solo piper and piper for hire Cameron Edgar.  Cameron was looking to update his old dated site for a contemporary and simple design which was easy to navigate.  It was important that Cameron could showcase his services, display testimonials and allow customer contact.  Cameron was delighted with the finished product and within a few days he received this message from a new customer

I saw your website before you got in touch actually! Being a graphic designer I was very impressed. The black/grey contrast set against the imagery looks really professional, and the site is easy to read and navigate. By far one of the best sites out there.

The third site of the year so far is almost finished, a completely new look for a long term customer, The Murrayfield Building Company based in Edinburgh.  That one should be online sometime soon, again WordPress based with responsive technology for the mobile phone and tablet users.
