Client: ControlCircle for Article10 (2010) Details: This project was for a microsite for ControlCircle to promote their Max2Go mobile app to control remote hosting server. The site focused on a signup form (with reCaptcha) which sent a text via an SMS gateway to the user to allow them to download the device specific trial version of the app.

Designation: Touchpoint

Touchpoint is the appropriate name for communication from Designation, focussed on the monthly e-shot supported by a blog where subscribers can post their feedback. The e-shot is on edition 25 as I write this, meaning it’s been going out on time every month for over 2 years, which is a remarkable achievement for a company this size.

TVCCG: A five letter acronym on the lips of business

TVCCG were looking to expand and update their email marketing capabilities, as part of a push on their digital marketing. I provided consultancy to help them decide on the best solution for their multiple needs and then implemented (with the ability to integrate into their CRM, website and analytics package), and supported, the chosen solution.

Rotary Club of Reading: Serving since 1922

The Designation MD has been a member of Rotary for years so the current website (Eddie CMS / ASP / XHTML / CSS) is the second generation of sites produced for his local chapter/coven (or whatever). They do good work both in the local community and beyond and needed a site that could update themselves but looked modern to help bring the club out of the dark ages.

Oddies: Odd socks of the world unite!

The Oddies are a series of childrens books (and hopefully soon a TV series) from the author Grant Slatter. Using the great character illustrations produced by the Oddies team we produced a number of Flash and CMS driven websites covering both Oddieworld itself as well as the ReadWithMe week campaign that was rolled out over the following years. I was involved in the production of all the website as well as interactive CD’s that supported the ReadWithMe campaign.

Copeswood: Manifestation inc.

Copeswood’s needed a new website to help clearly market their services. They wanted a clean and professional looking website with a couple of nice features. I developed a simple PHP site that utilised the MooTools JavaScript framework to add a modern gallery using MultiBox to show off their samples, as well as actually finding an actual justifiable reason to use the Reflection script on the homepage. I’ve also helped Copeswood with other eMarketing requirements in their communication.

Norwegian Log: Building with nature’s best

The Norwegian Log website showcases the log buildings of various kinds they offer with lots of supporting material and case studies. The site is a CMS with is managed for the client as they are far too busy looking after the dozens of filtered prospects that contact them through the site every month (each one potentially a six figure sale).

Scienceworks: A woman of outstanding achievement

Averil has been a client of Designation for a number of years usually working as a project manager on a education based project either in print or online. She needed a site to showcase her work over the years and help promote the fact that she ‘Woman of Outstanding Achievement 2007’. I worked as consultant and developer on this website which is designed to reflect her personality and to allow individual sections to be promoted seperately dependant on the audience she is talking to.
