Our work ranges from simple web portfolio and brochure design to dynamic, database-driven website development.

Our Website Design Portfolio

Free Word Centre

The primary goals of Free Word Centre's redesign brief were to increase website traffic and improve the visibility of the events taking place. We responded to this by designing an ExpressionEngine CMS which enables complex relationships to be built between content entries, which, in turn, allows the site visitor to follow a rich journey of discovery through the website. There is cross-linking between past and upcoming Events, Blogs, News and Residents, and groupings of all this content under the Programmes pages.

Although foot traffic is London based, the Free Word Centre's activities have an international audience; the website was therefore developed with scope for full multi-lingual translation, though only limited content in the About us pages is offered with translated versions at launch.

Free Word did not have formal branding documents or guidelines; whilst staying true to their brand, we produced a visual design based on their logo and other selected promotional materials that evokes the liveliness and diversity of the Free Word Centre.

The Life Centre

The Life Centre (TLC), is a yoga studio with two central London locations run under the same management as the teacher training body Yogacampus. Yogacampus were so happy with the new website we created for them in 2010 that they asked us to redesign TLC's website and move it onto the same Content Management System (CMS). We used the CMS ExpressionEngine's Multi Site Manager to allow the content of both websites to be edited by staff through the same login. It also allows content updates from Yogacampus to be displayed on The Life Centre's website automatically. As an example, Yogacampus workshop listings relevant to regular TLC studio visitors can be cross-promoted with no extra content input or editing.

The website also integrates the class and teachers listings from TLC's studio management system, Mindbodyonline, which saves staff having to update both systems with the same information, and ensures website visitors will always be seeing the latest schedules and teacher bios.

Our work with The Life Centre also included refreshing their branding.

Royal Albert Hall's Learning & Participation (L&P) department asked us to produce a website to serve as an online resource and exhibition space for their art and culture project called ReFrieze. The project brings together artists, educators, teachers and students to produce a 21st century interpretation of the Hall's iconic frieze.

We designed a logo and visual identity for the project and produced an easy-to-use, fun and interactive site to engage project participants and school students. We created an accessible, side-ways scrolling, annotated photo panorama of the Hall's frieze, giving visitors a unique opportunity to see the 244m long mosaic close-up. The CMS we provided them with offers a practical solution to gathering, collating and presenting images from schools scattered around the UK.

The full site, which included all the students' artworks uploaded by their own teachers, was launched in February 2011 to coincide with the opening of the ReFrieze exhibition at the Royal Albert Hall.

Yogaloom provide personalised yoga instruction, yoga therapy and offer yoga retreats in the UK and Greece. They came to us looking for a website design and in the process of working with them it became apparent that we needed to reconsider Yogaloom's brand in order to boost traffic and increase bookings. After designing a whole new set of identity assets we went on to create a website that provides comprehensive information about all Yogaloom's offerings, in a beautiful magazine style layout. The website is also fully responsive to varying screen sizes and is mobile friendly.

Yogacampus offers one of the UK's most highly regarded yoga teacher training courses and run workshops taught by internationally recognised yoga teachers. They came to us looking for a complete website redesign and CMS development. They were unhappy with the design of their existing website and they found their CMS was cumbersome to use. Visitors were not always able to find the information they needed online, so a thorough structural overhall was required. We took a user-centred approach to developing the new information architecture. Our process included user journey workshops and the creation of detailed page descriptions before we moved onto wireframes and a working prototype. The new website has been well received by both students and staff. It successfully met Yogacampus' requirements in reducing email and telephone enquiries (they've been reduced by 80%) and they are able to update the website quickly and easily.

Poetry Translation Centre

We started working with this Arts Council funded organisation in 2007 when they came to us for a brand refresh and website redesign. After 14 months they commissioned us to begin a second phase of development. For this phase we set about highlighting the live events that took place as part of the 2008 World Poets' Tour, so all the photos, videos and recordings of these events can be seen/heard online and can be browsed by series, event or poet.

There are also new sections for PTC's recently published set of chapbooks as well as the podcasts they are currently producing. The site is still used to publicize their ongoing workshop programme and to publish new articles on translating poetry.

Yogamatters Ltd.

We did a visual rebranding for the online yoga equipment supplier Yogamatters - this included designing the logo, stationary, adverts and product labels. We continue to do their print advertisement design. They were also moving their website onto a new e-commerce platform, so we provided them with the design concepts on which this brand new website design is based.

Fergus Wessel's Stone Workshop

Fergus Wessel wanted to update the website we designed for him in 2006 with a large number of new gallery images, expanded information pages and an integrated news section about his stone letter cutting workshop. We agreed the best solution was to move the site onto the ExpressionEngine CMS and restructure it so that this large amount of content could be more easily managed and so he could also update it himself. With all the content managed in a database, the CMS also makes it easy for Fergus to create links between relevant pages of different sections which enhances both the usability and search engine optimisation of the website. Although Fergus was still happy with the appearance of the old website we were able to persuade him to 'refresh' the existing design so that it looks up-to-date in 2009 and beyond.

Acid Survivors Trust International

ASTI already had an existing website which they wanted to be able to update more easily and regularly, to give visitors a reason to come back again. They also needed a password protected area for their team of volunteers to be able to download resources from wherever they are in the world. ASTI are a relatively small charity with a very limited budget, so we offered to include just a simple design refresh along with a redesign of the site architecture and new CMS development.

Using our favourite content management system, ExpressionEngine, allowed us to meet all of ASTI's needs, including setting them up with a Forum in the Team Resources area for team members to discuss techniques and resources they are using to help survivors of acid attacks. They are now able to update all the content on their website, and regularly publish news stories which keeps the homepage fresh.

Native Awareness, School of primitive survival and earth living skills

When James Watson, founder of the Native Awareness school, approached us to have a look at their site, it was in need of a complete makeover.

We started by refreshing their branding, and went on to create a website design that would reflect their emphasis on the natural world. This is backed up by an extensive CMS that allows them to edit the content on any section of the site, and to keep their schedule of courses up to date with minimal effort.

Stephen Wessel, Flutemaker

Stephen Wessel came to us with an established website that needed a complete overhaul to bring the visual design up-to-date and to improve his visibility online. Stephen had been updating his site using a simple text editor, risking the introduction of design inconsistencies as he grappled with the HTML code.

We redesigned his website to give it a classy, professional and contemporary look, and built him a custom CMS which makes updating the website easy and stress-free by keeping the design and layout separate from the content. We also looked carefully at the keywords and phrases relevant to Stephen's flute making business and structured the site around these to enhance the website's search engine ranking.

Moving Image Training Alliance

We designed and developed a new website for a London training providers alliance. All sections of the website can be updated by the MITA administrator using the content-management system we built for them. The directory of members can be filtered by type of training or learner so that relevant organisations can be found easily. Some of the content is limited to members-only: registered organisations need to login to access the full content. The news, opportunities and events are updated on a weekly basis and then fed through to an HTML newsletter template which MITA send out to subscribers twice a month.

The Bell Pub, London E1

This beautiful, independently owned Victorian pub has reclaimed its original name under the new management. They wanted their new website design to be contemporary in style but also reflect the Victorian charm of the pub. Though the content of the website is mainly static, they did want to be able to keep the lunch menus and events listings up-to-date. So we installed a really simple little CMS which doesn't allow them to create new content pages, but it does let them edit all the text and upload the latest menus in Word or PDF format.

Content can be edited using the mini CMS system Perch

Zooid Pictures Ltd.

Zooid Pictures' existing website failed to impress upon the visitor that their company is a market leader working for publishers, broadcasters, museums and corporates worldwide. We worked with Zooid on a radical redesign and restructuring in order to communicate their brand and imbue confidence in potential and returning clients.

Since Zooid had a tight budget and already had some in-house skills in building and editing websites in HTML using Dreamweaver, we handed the website over to them to keep updated.

Dr. Volker Scheid

We designed and developed this CMS driven website for an East Asian medicine scholar-physician. The website provides information to potential clients about his clinical practice, and to students and academics about his research and teaching. The extensive CMS allows Dr. Scheid to update all areas of the website himself, from background information pages through patient testimonials to his latest publications.

Barulho Samba Band

This Brighton based, Brazilian Samba band came to us with a long out-of-date, Flash website which they had no way of updating. Using their existing branding we redesigned and developed a CMS driven website in XHTML, so they are able to update the website themselves at anytime. They are now regularly publishing their upcoming gig listings, news, photos and sound & videos from recent events.

One Planet Living in Sutton (No longer live)

We worked together with the environmental organisation BioRegional to develop a website which helps to facilitate and document the process of creating a Sustainability Action Plan for the London Borough of Sutton. As well as inviting registered public users to share their ideas on the website, it also allows them to list events happening in the local area. The project manager is able to post items to the action plan as they are decided. There is a partners-only area, which allows project partners to comment on the developing sustainability action plan, share documents, contact details and meeting schedules.
