Finished a couple of WordPress powered websites over the summer (was that the summer?).
First up, Scapa Technologies. They provide load-testing and monitoring software (stuff that makes your internal IT systems run better). They needed a fairly comprehensive site, with a secure customer area and forum and WordPress stepped up to the mark with no problems.
A few meetings, a couple of design revisions, a bit of emailing back and forward over image choices for the slideshow, and we were off. The beauty of WordPress is that there really does seem to be a plugin for just about everything, meaning adding the Forum was a very quick job. For everything else, WordPress can pretty much handle it out of the box.
Melanie McAllan from Scapatech said:
“We have been delighted with the overall service provided by 45b Web Design and particularly with our new website. Craig is extremely knowledgeable and brought a lot of great ideas and insight into the process of creating our new website He is easy to work with, responsive and always on-hand to advise on all aspects of the work involved. We would encourage anyone who is looking for anything from web design advice to a completely new website to engage 45b.”
Next up, we have a holistic treatments and beauty therapist based in Edinburgh – Aspen Therapies. Cari already had a website and approached 45b to see what could be done – the existing site was almost all graphics, with nothing for Google to get its teeth into. So first up, a total redesign and rebuild was suggested. The ability to control the website’s content appealed too, so good old WordPress came to the rescue again.
A slideshow makes the most of the clinic’s stylish interior, and with WordPress, Cari can now add her increasing press coverage easily to the site. New treatments and product ranges can quickly be added too. An hour’s training was all it took and within a few weeks the website was ready to go.
No rest for the wicked though, so currently cracking on with another WordPress website for Access Equality – a new telecare company in Scotland. Have also finished a cracking site for Emily Hogarth, an Edinburgh-based papercut artist whose work features on a load of things including Nivea bottles and Cadbury’s adverts. Emily’s currently in the process of uploading all her work to the site so this should be launched soon.
Also been providing technical assistance to The Covey Agency and have completed a few WordPress sites for them, including Heriot Audio Visual – specialists in courtroom technology and large-screen installations, and Premier Commercial, Edinburgh insurance underwriters.
Next site to launch should be a lovely new Shopify ecommerce site for Elements for Home, a Stockbridge-based shop supplying all sorts of stunning products for your home. This will be online very soon.
