Website Re-Design for Forestry Project

Friday, December 5th, 2014

Pixelwave Web Design has recently completed a website re-design for a Welsh Forestry Project. I built the original site for them back in 2010 and have been working on the site ever since. Recently they wanted a bit of an update though so their site has been entirely re-designed to include features such as:

  • A Responsive Layout that responds to the screensize the site is being viewed upon and adjusts the layout accordingly providing a more appropriate experience for those viewing the site on mobile devices.
  • Customisable menus from within the Content Management System
  • Facebook Feed
  • Twitter Feed
  • EU Cookie notification
  • A Cleaner more modern design

All is up and running with the new design now and the clients seem happy which is always my aim.

@ebol Press is an innovative educational children’s publisher that publishes bilingual learning and teaching materials for the home, schools and colleges. They are now extending their catalogue by publishing an inspirational new series of books in English, with a Welsh subject matter.

The new series of English books are designed to inspire children about careers and life choices! ‘Spark’ will comprise of real life stories from those who have been there and done that! This set of five books will include some famous faces to prove that it is not always easy to get what you want in life, sometimes it is a struggle, but the sense of satisfaction when you achieve it is greater when you have worked hard!

Pixelwave Web Design has built a brand new website specifically for this new range of books. The website is intended as both a promotional tool for the new range of books and as a way of presenting additional information for readers of the books. The new books introduce the success of Welsh people in various different aspects of life, such as the entertainment, sport, the business world and even ‘unsung heroes’. They are aimed at 9-11 year old children and the website will reflect this demographic. The website showcases these books and provides supplemental information and activities for readers of the books as well as information for parents.

Built around a Content Management System the website will be easily updated by @ebol staff allowing them to add new content and news items whenever they wish. Although the new website has being designed with the ‘Spark’ range of books in mind it is likely to contain more ranges of books, activities and games in the future so this has being taken into account during the build process. The website will therefore allow for easy expansion so that it can grow with @ebol’s increasing range.

Website Design for Mid Wales Vintage Machinery Club

Tuesday, November 12th, 2013

Pixelwave Web Design is pleased to have started work on a brand new website for the Mid Wales Vintage Machinery Club.

The proposed website is intended as both a promotional tool for the Mid Wales Vintage Machinery Club and as an information point for members of the club. It will be used to encourage new members to join the club and will assist with the sharing of information for existing members.

As well as describing the Mid Wales Vintage Machinery Club and its activities, the website will provide visitors with descriptions of the various activities on offer. It will provide group members with information relating to meetings and events and will promote rallies to both members and non-members. The intention will be to inform and stimulate interest in the Mid Wales Vintage Machinery Club and to encourage new membership as well as providing existing members with a useful ‘information hub’. The website will contain a latest news section which will be updated by Mid Wales Vintage Machinery Club on a regular basis.

It is hoped that the new website will bring the club up to date and encourage a more open and up beat feeling within the club. Work is well underway on the website with the design already approved. The club are currently in the process of writing content and sourcing photos for the various pages and the site will go live as soon as they have done so.

In the meantime, here’s a sneak preview.

Website Design for Aberystwyth Beekeepers

Monday, September 30th, 2013

Pixelwave Web Design has just released a new website for the Aberystwyth Beekeepers Association. As a member of the association myself I have been producing their newsletter for the past couple of years and have also been keen for them to have a website. When the committee decided that a website would indeed be a useful tool they naturally approached me to design and build it for them. I also worked on the the information architecture and content of the website too.

Based on the design and layout that I use for the newsletter, the site soon took shape and is now live for all to see. As well as providing information about the association and how to join and contact the Aberystwyth Beekeepers it will act as an information hub for existing members. The site contains an events calendar, latest news system and the ability for ABKA committee members to keep the site up to date through and easy to use Content Management System.

Ramblers Website Design Goes Live

Wednesday, September 25th, 2013

I’m pleased to announce that the Aberystwyth Ramblers’ website that I’ve been working on has now gone live.

The website introduces the group, tells you how to contact them and acts as an information hub for its members. Complete with latest news system and an events calendar their new website should allow them to keep in contact and up to date with ease. Based on an easy to use Content Management System, members of the Aberystwyth Ramblers’ Committee are able to update the site as and when they wish.

So far feedback on the website from the committee and the members has been highly positive. I quite like it myself too!

Due to the fact that the website will be updated regularly it will be based around a Content Management System (CMS). This will enable Aberystwyth Ramblers’ Group committee members to update the website as well as Pixelwave Web Design.

The site is now well underway and so far I’m delighted with it. I only hope the Ramblers themselves are too.

Website Design for Greetings Cards Company

Tuesday, July 9th, 2013

I’ve recently started work on a new website for a wholesale greetings cards company based here in West Wales and in the Midlands.

The Crystal Devas is a family based business that design and supply inspirational greetings cards on a wholesale basis.

As a brand new company Crystal Devas are starting from scratch with the branding and online presence and recently approached me asking me to build them a website. The site is being based around a Content Management System so that the Crystal Devas will be able to add new products and product ranges as and when they develop them. The website will showcase their range of greetings cards and  introduce the business, its values and its staff. In the future there may be an option to buy online as well.

The site is well underway and my clients seem excited about it. They have seen the basic layout and spent some time here with me tweaking a few aspects of it and getting colours etc. exactly the way they wanted them. I’m now working on populating the site with the initial content before handing the reigns over to them. I will of course provide them with some hands-on practical tuition in the use of the Content Management System and ongoing support too.

Here’s a Sneak Preview.
