Client: Architectural FX (2012)
Details: Architectural FX is the UK partner for LED Linear and Wibre, two of the top names in LED lighting solutions in Europe. They wanted to revise their website to encourage users to directly access the partner websites to view the product lines to avoid double entry issues. I produced a simple landing page which allowed instant access to the other sites whilst keeping the UK contact details visible.
Client: Wessex Coin (2012)
Details: Wessex Coin supplies gaming and amusement equipment across the world. Managing Director Chris Skelly got in touch to discuss how to start to implement digital marketing in their business.
It was agreed that a WordPress CMS website would be at the core of their approach, to allow them to load and update their content and product stock, as well as sell selective products online via PayPal. The blog will be used for both news and technical updates, supported by Twitter and in an email newsletter, to help build stronger relationships with existing customers. (more…)
Client: St Barnabas House and Chestnut Tree House Hospices for Article10 (2012)
Details: 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.
The hospices chose to integrate these microsites into the Eddie CMS provided by Article10 which runs their main websites. I was involved in the original development of the CMS so was happy to get involved.
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. (more…)
Client: NHITF and SCITF (2011)
Details: 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 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.
Client: St Barnabas Hospice for Article10Design (2010/2011)
Details: St Barnabas Hospice were putting the finishing touches to their brand spanking new hopsice building when they approached Article1o to provide an online booking system to reward their donors with a guided tour of the premises. With multiple thousand people involved and very specific requirements regarding the bookings and the output of tour group data for the guides, a bespoke system made the most sense. I built this web application using Classic ASP and MS SQL server and it proved a massive success, with lots of additional tours being added to account for demand. The St Barnabas team have since said that without the system it would have been a logistical nightmare for them to manage.
