New Collier Reading Architects website

Collier Reading Architects based in Glastonbury came to us with a problem: Their previous website wasn’t doing the job they wanted it to. The design wasn’t very appealing, engaging or exciting, and they didn’t even have a blog. Their current website wasn’t being found on Google as it wasn’t search engine optimised, and most importantly it didn’t have a content management system so they couldn’t update the website themselves. Also the existing site wasn’t optimised for viewing on mobile phones. 

Visual impact was the key for Collier Reading Architects website

When people search for an architect and come across a website, they look at their previous projects to see if any are the sort of style they are after. Architects websites have to have instant visual impact, so we designed the site to have a full width project image slider on the homepage to give prospective clients immediate inspiration.

WordPress content management system

We built the new bespoke designed website on WordPress, giving the client their very own blog and allowing them to be able to update their entire site themselves whenever they wished. WordPress is one of the best and easiest to use CMS platforms available, with a vast range of plugins to enhance your website.

The website was designed to respond to the size of the browser window and has been designed to display well on modern smart phones and tablets as well as laptops and desktop computers. Finally we optimised the new website to be found for certain key words and phrases in search engines. This was done by some careful research into the certain key words that people commonly search for when looking for architects and also looking at the competition between them. So hopefully, they should now be getting found online and should be higher up the search engine rankings.

Turnaround time Wordpress templates can be a great option for small businesses just starting out. Those that are tech savvy could have a simple site up and running within a few hours, providing they have the content ready.

New LED Architects website and identity

An imaginary fist pump was my inital reaction when I heard that we were going to be given the opportunity to design and build the new LED Architects website. Architects, as we all know, are designers. And as designers they are very visual. They like their work to tell the story with big, interesting and powerful project images – not the usual stock photography you find on every Tom, Dick and Harry's website. This is a web designer's dream, and I was chomping at the bit to get started on it. ...
