As well as adding the bilingual aspect to the site it’s having a little design refresh as well. Their budget is fairly low so it won’t be a complete re-design. I’ll just be adding some more colour, adding some white space, tidying things up a little and adding some mobile responsive features too. The entire textual cipy on the website is being re-written as well just to make sure it is all up to date.
Launch date is April 9th so watch this space. As usual, here’s a sneak preview.]]>
Their new website being built by Pixelwave Web Design will be built around a Content Management System allowing staff at the school to keep the site up to date. It will be fully bilingual with easy to use translation management features built into the CMS. The site itself will be a promotional tool for the school but more importantly an information hub for staff, parents and students alike.
In addition to background information on the school, it’s classes and staff there will be a news section with all the latest updates, a section containing any letters sent home and a comprehensive calendar system that will list all of the events associated with the school. Parents will be able to subscribe to the calendar using their favourite devices / apps as well so that they need never miss an event.
Work is already underway on the site. The majority of the back-end is in place, as is the overall design and structure. Once the content has been delivered and added to the site it should be ready to go. Hopefully sometime int he New Year. For now, here’s a sneak peak!]]>
The Ceredigion Association of National Trust Members (CANTM) approached me after one of their committee members had experience of work I had done for the local Ramblers Association. They had been pleased with my work and my approach-ability and therefore asked me for advice on building a website for CANTM. Before I knew it that advice became a commission to build a website for them and I have since been working on the project.
The website will be a simple brochure style website with
The site will be easy to use and easy for visitors to navigate and will hopefully be kept up to date with regular updates throughout the year. We’re just waiting for a few final bits of information and content and the final go ahead from the committee and then the site should go live.]]>
Some content was updated but most of it remained the same. The bulk of the work involved a new look and feel and the utilisation of the style guides provided by the Arts Society. We wanted to keep the Isle of Man society separate from the parent organisation to a certain extent so that it still has it’s own identity but the overall feel and style of the site should now be fairly consistent with that of the parent organisation.
In effect it’s had a new lick of paint and a change of name. No harm in that as it helps to refresh things now and then.
I was given free reign on the design and was provided with most of the content straight away which made things run very smoothly indeed. I was able to build a bespoke website around his content and source suitable images to liven it up.
The website itself feature the strengths, services and biography of my client in a professional, modern design. It is of course mobile responsive, easy to use and attractive. The website is also optimised for search engines and easy to update.
My client is delighted with the results and Pixelwave Web Design wish him all the best with his new business venture.]]>
The basics are now in place, the design and layout is looking good. The bilingual aspects of the site are in place and working well and so far it has been well received by everyone involved. There will be more content, more pages and more information being added to it soon. It was of course a bit of a challenge to get the site up and running so quickly but having virtually free-reign over the design helped as there wasn’t too much ‘to-ing and fro-ing’ waiting for decisions to be made and preferences to be expressed. I could just get on with it, making decisions as I went and adhering to the ideas that I had for the website design.
The website is based on a Content Management System so will allow for easy updating of the site by staff at the Well-being and Health Assessment Research Unit. I will also be making updates for them here at Pixelwave Web Design.
The bilingual nature of the site is also easy to manage thanks to translation management software that has been added to the Content Management System. This makes adding and editing content in both languages easy and automates much of the process of organising this content within the website so that there is a consistent experience for the end user whichever language they are viewing the site in.
It’s good to be a part of this exciting project and I’m looking forward to seeing it grow as the Well-being and Health Assessment Research Unit gets underway.]]>
WARU, the Well-being and Health Assessment Research Unit is being set up as an initiative within IBERS, the Institute of Biological, Environmental and Rural Sciences at Aberystwyth University. Their new website will be aimed at promoting the unit, presenting the research that is taking place within the unit and detailing the projects that are associated with it. The website is also intended as a recruitment tool, encouraging organisations and individuals to get involved with the research projects within WARU.
I’m excited to be a part of this project and have already started work on the website as it will be running to some tight deadlines. The official Launch Day of the Well-being and Health Assessment Research Unit is looming fast so the website needs to be ready to go in it’s basic form by then. The website itself will be based on a Content Management System allowing various members of staff at WARU to edit and update the site whenever needed. This will be achieved through an easy to use but fully featured admin panel.
As WARU is associated with Aberystwyth University there will be various branding regulations to adhere to but I have otherwise been given free reign with regards to the design and layout of the website. The website will also have to be fully bilingual and therefore will need a translation management tool built into the Content Management System.
Work is already underway on the new website design for WARU and the initial site should be released soon so watch this space.]]>
I was approached by this new client after an associate of his (Peter Dewland) directed him to me. I built a website for Peter many years ago and still maintain it for him – not that anything very often changes on it. Peter obviously recommended my services to his colleague and I’m now building a website for him too. The content is very similar as they offer similar services. This however is a brand new design with a much more modern appearance. It also follows all of the latest trends and recommendations in the world of web design and interface design.
It will feature the strengths, services and biography of my client in a professional, easy to sue manner. The site itself will of course be mobile responsive, easy to use and attractive.
I’ve already started work on it so can’t wait to release it to the world. her’s a sneak peak that reveals very little!
The design has been optimised to showcase the artwork keeping things easy for the user to navigate and simplifying the maintenance tasks. I hope you like it.]]>
