Time for an update

I can not believe its been three months since my last blog post. Its been such a busy period so thought it was time to write an update.

So what have I been working on? Well its been a range of projects including plenty of website design and development through to a lot of brochure work.

Due to the scale of the projects most are still under development. I am currently working on a new website for Manchester based Absolutely Flawless. The design, wire-framing, prototyping and frontend build is pretty much done and I will be developing the site in WordPress as a custom site and Theme in the coming weeks.

Next up is a new site design and build for Chicago based VOX who provide global brands with merchandising and display solutions. Phase one of the site is nearly complete and will be developed on the WordPress CMS platform.

I recently launched a new site for Manchester based www.outoftheboxmcr.co.uk which is a custom designed WordPress site. The site provides users with the option to book appointments online, which is integrated with PayPal for online payments and Google Calendars for syncing of appointments. Finally the website is multi-lingual covering both English and Spanish.

Other projects in the pipeline include three financial websites, scaling up to sixteen sites over the next 6 months, a CMS website for Gatwick based Mastercool, POS for Manchester based Cooksmill, another CMS site for Ascot based ProFlow and finally ongoing design support for Belgium based MCE consisting of approximately 30+ brochures and digital material.

Aside from working on the projects I have been planning my new website, which I want to launch early next year. I am in the early planning stages and because I want to rebuild the site from the ground up I want to take my time to get it right. I am also looking at building the new site on Perch rather than CMSMS so that I have complete control of the code.

Well that gives you an idea of what I have been up to for the past three months. I will make sure I do a blog post update again soon.

Kind words from my clients

?Andrew has recently designed and developed 3 different websites for me 1 of which has already launched and is performing extremely well in terms of conversion rates.

In terms of the process from start to finish, I had an idea of features that i wanted on my site but I had no idea of the layout. Andrew gave me his own recommendation on what he thought would work well in order to make the customer journey as simple as possible and based on our current conversion rates he's got it quite spot on.

Andrew provided me with daily updates regarding the progress of the site from the design phase to the site build. In total the length of the project was just over 2 months. The website has passed all security checks and although the site is just 1 week old has surpassed all our forecasts and projections. I would highly recommend working with Andrew, his designs are aesthetically excellent and he has mastered simplifying the customer journey and has helped me get off to a flying start with my new business. ?Ocean Capital Ltd - www.paydaypixie.co.uk
