Site: BryherShop.co.uk

Bryher, the smallest island in the Isles of Scilly, has just got a brand new shop. The new owner wanted to really capture the attention of their target audience – not just the island resident, but also the countless holiday makers and visitors. The brief was simple – easy to use, a breeze to update, look good and include a fully featured online shop. And so we did. Building on the ever popular WordPress framework, we created a site that we believe fulfills all requirements – and more. The online shop is intuitive and full of features – Bryher Shop can now have orders direct to their...

Add-on: Tresco.co.uk Map

The Isles of Scilly – a small bit of heaven, more reminiscent of the Caribbean than the UK on a summer’s day. Tresco, the upmarket timeshare resort, had just developed a stunning new website. But, they were after a little more interactivity. They tasked us to create a new, interactive map using Google’s superb API. We created an interactive map to show the locations of over 60 cottages around the island, including customized info windows with cottage ¬†thumbnails that link to the individual cottage...

Having been described as an “overwhelming success” in its first year, the Tresco Triathlon plans to be even bigger and better for their second year. A charity event raising money for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust, the organizers realised an online presence was needed. So, they asked us to come up with a website – one that would look professional and clean, create a new identity for the event (including logo), yet contain all of the information the public would need – from last years results/pictures/press reviews, to an interactive map of the course (including topographical charts). We’re very pleased with the final result – a sleek looking site which includes everything in the original spec, and more. We built the site using...

The idea of this site is brilliantly simple; the site owner wanted to create a completely free way of posting/applying for jobs. Rather than rely on other sites that charge upwards of ¬£500 to post a job, why not give it away for free? Having had ample experience in the seasonal market, the site owner was looking for something that would tick those proven boxes: Simple to use. Easy to navigate. Quick to post a job, and just as quick to apply for a job. No problem we said. We used WordPress, the proven CMS which is going from strength to strength with added functionality from 3rd party developers. We introduced a particular theme which included a number of features you’d want to see from a job/recruitment website – post a job in under 2 minutes. Get it...

The requirements for this site were extensive – the central hub for a team of 3 driving half way around the world for charity. The site needed to look good, encompassing the adventure theme. It needed to handle regular updates in the form of travel blogs from around the world. It had to have the functionality to collect donations and payments from visitors and sponsors, and dynamically update the site to display the fundraising total. Image galleries were a must, as well as integrating a map that updated their position (anywhere in the world) every 15 minutes. Oh, and also handle about 100,000 words of blog content; display 20+ sponsor logos throughout the site; give the guest the ability to send a text message from the site to the car phone; fully...
