Vesta Rowing Club

Revamped rowing club website and membership management

Vesta is a well-established rowing club in London, with a membership of several hundred. We have refreshed the website to make it more useful and up-to-date for members and more attractive for visitors (almost halving the bounce rate). And as part of an ongoing project, we moved membership subscriptions to an online direct debit collection service and member applications online too, saving time, reducing errors and increasing revenues.

Jules Rendell

Soul Singer and Songwriter website

An artist like Jules Rendell needs a website to be modern, classy and cool. Together we focused on creating a visually bold and engaging website, with plenty of photos, video and tracks. Importantly the site also links a lot of Jules' social media and commercial activity. It also has room for news, reviews and upcoming events too!

A note on Jules’ site

julesrendell.co.uk is a Parallex Scrolling site, which means that the background images move behind the foreground images at a slower speed. This can have a very striking effect, but it means that screenshots of the site don't do it justice. I encourage you to click on the image below to view more!

I love my new scroller website. Cheryl has a natural eye for colour, size and balance so that the website is stylish with all the features I wanted but not cluttered. She listened to my requirements and ideas and augmented them to cover areas I hadn't thought of, including the revolving video reel, news page and mailing list sign up. Also willing to learn new aspects of the WordPress theme to make the website I wanted, Cheryl showed her technical ability to solve problems quickly and teach me how to update the website myself. One of her strengths is incorporating social media and SEO rankings, making the most of Google and other search engines to get as much traffic to my site as possible.

I'm thoroughly pleased with the job she has done for me and think it portrays me as an artist in the exact way I'd envisioned. She's also great fun to be around - I totally recommend her!

Peter Scott Tree Care

Specialist Root Barrier Website

Peter Scott Tree Care needed to redesign their website, as it had become outdated. The key priorities were to make it more attractive, user-friendly and drive more sales contacts. This was achieved in summer 2014 with ongoing SEO improvements and additions to content as required.

(Please note the foliage background image is a scrolling image, so the background does not turn grey when visiting the website, this is just a downside to using screen grabs!)

Cheryl understood straight away what we wanted and advised us on what we needed; things that we had not thought about. She delivered a fresh, modern website that is easy to navigate and contains all the information and downloads that our customers may need. Cheryl also keeps an eye on things and makes sure that everything is up to date and optimised.

Georgina’s Cakes

New website for cakes, cakes and more cakes!

Georgina had a website but it did not handle her photographs and testimonials well at all! She needed to be able to upload photos quickly, and create galleries and testimonials simply. We decided her website should be very visual and so included lots of sliders featuring her gorgeous cakes.

Cheryl, I just want to say a huge thank you for all your help with my wonderful new website. I am so pleased with the finished site as it is now super user friendly for both me and my customers. Thank you also for your patience helping me understand WordPress and answering the hundreds of little questions I had at first. You made the whole process very simple and easy for me, when I thought it was going to be a complete nightmare.

I will be recommending you to all my family and friends that need a website!

Many thanks,
Georgina

Imago Styling

A simple, stylish brand and website for personal stylist

Kristina is a personal stylist and image consultant who needed to build an online brand and presence. As a stylist, she had a vision of a clean, classic, monochrome site, which splashes of vibrant colour.

"I thoroughly enjoyed working with Cheryl! I was new to the world of websites and widgets when we began working together, and she was very patient, explained everything thoroughly, even helped me to set up my business email account, and held my hand throughout the whole process. At all times we were moving at my pace, she was always at the end of the phone and available to answer my questions, even after the website was finished, whilst I was learning to manage it myself. Couldn’t find a more helpful web designer, thoroughly recommend working with her."
