Welcome to our web design blog, we hope you find the content useful. We have written a range of posts over the years covering Marketing, Web Design, Web Development, Social Media Marketing and PR.
Our web design for Nesbits Auctions, Southsea incorporates their yellow and grey colour combination. In web design colour is really important. Yellow is a no-no for text in web design as the contrast is not strong enough for people to be able to read it clearly but we love the splashes of yellow throughout the website to pull together their brand and keep the look consistent. The grey is a good contrast colour for the white and offsets the yellow really well, it is so important that people can read the words on websites and with 8% of men suffering from colour blindness, choosing your colours well is vital. Coincidentally red-green colour blindness is the most common which is why, according to The New Yorker, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg chose blue for Facebooks’ primary and indeed the only brand colour.
We recently designed new branding and website concepts for Advanced Injury Managment. Advanced Injury Management are a full-service Physiotherapy and Injury Treatment Centre. With clinics located across the South Coast, the team wanted a modern looking website that would enable their customers to find the relevant contact details quickly and easily.
The branding and website design focuses on their ability to target the source of the pain and treat the source as well as the symptoms. Using a crosshair visually represents the locating of the pain and targetting of the treatment. The company have many happy clients and we also created a facebook page for them where customers can leave feedback about their treatment.
We have just designed and built a new website for the Royal Navy, Royal Marines Widows’ Association. We designed their last website in 2012 and it lasted brilliantly but the organisation wanted a new look so we have developed this new website.
Supported by a small committee of volunteers, all of whom are themselves, widows, the association works tirelessly to provide support to those who have lost a recognised partner who was serving or has served in the Royal Navy or Royal Marines. Formed in 2008 their aim is to bring friendship, support, guidance, and comfort to those who have experienced the trauma of bereavement.
The new website explains the help and support on offer and includes links to the Facebook page where you can add updates, and get an update on their news. They also have a private Facebook group, only for members, where you can interact with others to make friends and share experiences. www.facebook.com/rnrmwidowsassoc
