This website is mobile-friendly and has a bespoke Content Management System (CMS). The client can update copy and images, create new pages, add blogs, manage comments and also administrate their Twitter account all within the CMS dashboard.
The main focus for this project was that the website functionality on a Smart Phone. This meant that it needed to be a mobile friendly, responsive website, which will resize to fit the device.
When viewed on a Smart Phone the visitor can select the 'Call Now' button and the phone number will pop up ready to make that important call.The website also includes a link to the client's existing Wordpress blog and a 'Book Now' button which opens the appointment booking calendar.
This fully responsive website is an example of our FirstStep package, as the client required a basic landing page to be set up, to give them more time to concider the requirements for their final website build. It includes a basic introduction and contact links, including contact number, email address, social media accounts and field for visitors to submit their email address. The package also includes the setting up of up to 3 social media accounts for business and a MailChimp E-Marketing account.
This was an internal project to redesign and build our own company website. The priorty for the design and function was to keep it as simple and straightforward as possible. It was also important to make it fully responsive, so it can easily be viewed on any Smart device. This website is the starting point which we will continue to build upon, keeping it fluid and fresh as a good business website should be. Check back regularly to see the new developments.

Website: "Having no clue as to the magical world of website design, we were completely dependent on Softsea Design to interpret our vision for our new site. We were definitely in safe hands, as they have produced a stylish website that is adaptable for PC, tablet and mobile phone.
Softsea Design fulfilled their brief brilliantly!”
"I've been looking to re-brand for some time but wasn't sure how to go about it. I met Julie and spoke about my vision and from there she came up with a few designs for my logo. It was very difficult to pick one as they were all so amazing and all very different. After we finally agreed on a design Julie took it to the next level. I am so pleased with my new logo and Softsea designs has superseded my expectations. I have no hesitation in recommending Softsea designs.”
