Following a busy few weeks of development we’ve unleashed three new websites on the world in a week. Busy times at Maroon Balloon HQ!
The first was for Polyhouses, who are a West Sussex-based manufacturer and supplier of polytunnels and polyhouses for garden centres and commercial growers. As well as website refresh they needed a price calculator which would enable potential customers to cost up their chosen solution for each product in their range. The products come in many sizes and with many options and add-ons, so a ‘one size fits all’ calculator was pretty much impossible. Or was it?
We were very pleased to have created a great little calculation tool with nice slider controls, which can be seen here, enabling a customer to build their own personalised instant quote. There’s a hell of a lot of maths behind this app – lots of number crunching going on to enable users to see the price update itself in real time as they change their selections. Needless to say we’re somewhat proud of this one.
A few days later we completed and launched a new website for London Pain Service, who are based on London’s famous Harley Street. We’ll be off up there shortly to run one of our website training sessions. They needed a website to promote their pain management services and their prestigious location, plus an online resource library for patients to download important documents and a blog where industry articles could be read and shared.
We were commissioned for the job following a recommendation from an IT professional, and employed the services of a local designer to provide impactful branding. We love the logo. The result was www.londonpainservice.com, which we feel is a clean and sympathetic design as befits their industry, and crucially, easy to navigate for users on all devices.
Then hot on the heels of yesterday’s website go live for London Pain Service, today sees British Shintaido‘s new website open to the world at www.shintaido.co.uk. They are the official organisation for Shintaido in the UK, offering classes, workshops and examinations around the country, and they also run the British Shintaido College. Check out classes near you if you’re interested in this traditional Japanese martial art.
Based on their existing logo and colour palette it’s another clean and fresh looking website, providing a host of information for those interested in Shintaido as well as for those already practising. The Classes section gives locations, times and dates of classes, along with descriptions and costs, instructor information and so on. This section is scaleable so that new classes can easily be added as they are established around the country.
For this, our 3rd launch in 7 days, we thank long time friend Terry Bickers for introducing us to the wonderful bunch of people that are British Shintaido.
