What we’ve done

These are our some of our recent or current projects.

Pembrokeshire Business

Pembrokeshire Business Ltd wanted the impossible, so that’s what we gave them! We built the most complex and challenging website we’ve ever attempted. The website has over 8,000 businesses listed within the directory (from a back end database) and we gave them an intelligent search function so users can find businesses easily.

Logo Design

PB wanted something that could relate to the people of pembrokeshire, that would be fun and colourful and most of all meaningfull to them and their business.

Being from Pembrokeshire ourselves, we know a bit about the backgound and symbolism of the county. The famous puffins residing on local islands echo throughout the county as well as the proud pembrokeshire flag.

Using these for inspiration we used the sybolism of the puffin, the colours of the flag and of course the letters P and B included in the negative space.

Corporate Identity

Of course, being online wasn’t enough for Pembrokeshire Business, they needed letterheads, business cards, compliment slips and much more.

Using the colour scheme we defined and their lovely logo, it wasn’t to difficult to make something that would reinforce their brand across all of their print media.

Website Design

With such a big project, every page had to be designed in detail before even a single line of code was written. The website was storyboarded and both user and administrators journeys were carefully planned out.

Upon completion of the designs, our programmers were unleashed and the site slowly started to unfold into a fully working directory. Some of the more details things we provided are outlined below.

Map Integration

Each listing is marked via a Google map but we customised the map icons and made sure the markers were in the right place for each business.

Now we don’t know where all 8000 business are, so we built in the option for businesses to change their map icon at any point.

User Integration

We built a system that allows the businesses in the directory to search, claim and control their own listing – and update it whenever they like.

Then we gave businesses some funky options like the ability to add a photo gallery to their listing, change or add categories, add their Twitter feed, opening hours, logo and business description amongst other things.

Social Integration

Users can login via Facebook or Twitter, or simply create their own account.

Users of their site can also easily link their businesses twitter accounts to their own business listing.

The website also sends automatic Tweets when certain activities take place on the site.

Mobile Website Integration
