Springwood Ceremonies: Helping you say it from the heart

Springwood Ceremonies create bespoke weddings, baby namings/welcomings, or funeral ceremonies, tailoring each ceremony according to the wishes of those involved so that they come truly from the heart. As a new start-up they needed a competitive package of identity and marketing materials to help launch and establish their brand, and loved the fact that Synthetic Egg could offer everything they needed in one place.

CultureMix encourage engagement in carnival arts and music through experiences, education, professional development and employment. They also incorporate RASPO, the Reading All Steel Percussion Orchestra. I worked with them rationalise and give clarity to their offerings on, and update the CMS behind, their content rich website. I also gave it a modern new look and feel and added a shop.

Night to Remember 2012

The Night to Remember midnights walks have helped raise nearly £1 million for the hospices over the last few years. For 2012 the decision was made to upgrade the CMS system managing the website/s. I produced the new sites and set up the functionality so that event registrations have PayPal integration (with Instant Payment Notification to reduce administration time) and offer registrants the options of automatically creating a JustGiving fundraising page (which was achieved via the new JustGiving API). There is also Facebook and Twitter connectivity.

ITF: logo and event websites

The previous ITF event websites were mis-matched and didn’t offer the brand continuity or functionality needed by the organisations. Working through Andrew Whiteman of Open Globe Marketing I evolved the logo so each organisation had a clear but connected identity, and designed and developed 2 new websites in WordPress CMS which allowed them full control over their content. They can now easily upload and manage their own event listings (with location map and EventBrite connectivity) which get ordered and listed automatically to keep the homepage and event list up-to-date.

IDASS: Health related fitness

IDASS care about helping people get fit for life. It’s about healthy eating and targeted exercise. The main IDASS website promotes their range of health and fitness related products, but they also have a WordPress blog where industry experts chip in with tips for a healthier life. The existing blog was supposed to mirror the look and feel of the main site, but it was falling short in a number of areas. IDASS needed a quick solution and turned to me to optimise their WordPress installation for their needs and add a few extras such as image slider and social networking links. I also added plugins to help manage their site for areas such as SEO and database backups.
