The Coromatograph Society are hosting their annual event at Grasmere this year. They wanted a simple Wordpress site to display event information and speaker profiles. The site also has Eventbrite functionality built in which means that all of the bookings for the event, fee collection, ticket issuing and administration are automated through the event website. The tie in with Wordpress and Eventbrite is an elegant and headache free way of managing events.

Just finishing up a Wordpress site for Adrienne at Health and Healing For All. It employs a powerful new template which gives lots of added functionality to the site but retains the easy to use Wordpress interface which makes updates and Blog posts a piece of cake!  

It also copes really well with mobile viewing on everything we can think of testing it on! It's a long list!

Adrienne has just opened new premesis in Carlisle City Centre and practices Reflexology and Applied Kinesiology and a fusion of the two called Kinesio-Reflex. Also qualified and insured to teach babyreflexTM to parents and in small workshop groups so that parents can help their own children and bond with them with the use reflexology. And she' s brilliant so take a look at her NEW website to find out a bit more...



Just finished a little website for Widewath Farm. They've rennovated a Barn on the Farm in the Eden Valley and it's beautiful. Now taking bookings. If you're into cycling, walking or mooching about it stunning scenery then you could do a lot worse! The website is written in Joomla with an added editor to allow the client to make all of the updates and changes from the front end of the site to remove the hassle of keeping a small site up to date.  Joomla is also very good at displaying on diiferent screen sizes and allows a full width banner at the top of posts to span the screen whatever the size and width. It's very image heavy and the owner had some great shots of the new accommodation taken by a local photographer which always helps a website to shine!

Creating and hosting the site was a 2 day job. I put together something easily updateable and accessible using Joomla which we hope to develop over the coming months with a more interactivity. It also features a simple interface to allow new content to be uploaded and existing content to be amended and changed. Mobile friendly and editable from any machine with an internet connection. View the site here...

Just delivered a nice little website for my good friend Rosalind. A fantastic copywriter based in Edinburgh. If you ever need a bit of copy, Rosalind is brilliant! An ex features writer from the Cumberland News so well versed in all things Cumbrian! Take a look at the Rosalind Gibb Media website here. http://rosalindgibb.com

It was a 2 day job. I put together something easily updateable and accessible using Wordpress. As a writer Rosalind's going to have plenty of content to post so Blog style pages seemed like the way to go. We also worked on the header image and branding together. The site started in black and white, very traditional but a bit of colour never hurts does it?
