Rectory Farm Meadow scrolling WordPress website

 The brief

A small website was required for a new business venture by a local farmer, to advertise a field for wedding and function hire. With no logo or branding in place and no definite idea of what kind of website presence was best suited to this start-up, our job was to create a visually engaging online identity and design and build a simple page to promote the new service.

 The solution

We worked closely with the client to understand the requirements of the branding – colours, style, tone and voice – and commissioned one of our trusted local graphic designers. He worked his magic and came up with a fresh and clean logo that conveyed the primary use of the farm meadow: a marquee for weddings and celebrations.

Because the small business idea was simple we opted for single-page scrolling website – there is a main menu but the website is in fact just one long page using anchor links and an ever-present menu at the top of the screen for intuitive navigation. The design of the site was deliberately image heavy while using a sympathetic colour palette of natural and earthy colours, rounded off with a cartoon style footer area to reinforce the farm’s stunning location in an area of outstanding beauty within a stone’s throw of the South Downs National Park here in West Sussex.

 The result

The website was turned around quickly and came in at under £500, including logo design and the first year’s web hosting and domain name. It fitted the bill perfectly and the client was very happy with the end result, as it conveyed exactly the feel envisaged (it’s this challenge that we’re able to meet for you – turning rough ideas into a fully functioning and great looking website).

The website has strong SEO for a one-page solution, and importantly a clear contact form for enquiries.

Customer feedback

“Tim has just helped me to design a webpage for my new business. He has been thoroughly professional throughout and was very receptive to any changes that I chose to make along the way. We are extremely pleased with the finished product. I would certainly have no hesitation in recommending his services in the future.”
