New website for Greenoak Kitchens

I have worked with Greenoak on their current website www.greenoak-construction.co.uk but they wanted a new site with slightly different branding to showcase the amazing kitchens the design, build and install. The site is built in wordpress and is simple to showcase the work.

Website redesign for Balnecroft Country with Gill Marketing

Balnecroft had an out of date site which was built in Prestashop and was not very user friendly on the admin. The new site is built in WordPress using Woo Commerce platform and is working well since its release in April. I provided tutorial videos for various parts of the website and the owner of the website is now editing, updating seo data and managing the shop.

Website redesign for Sun Rising Natural Burial Ground

One of the things I love about my job is the variety of websites I get to work on. This was a redesign of a tired old site with way too much information on it. The brief was white space, beautiful images as this is mainly viewed by people who are grieving. The finished result shows the beautiful grounds really well and information is organised so it's easy to find. Built in WordPress so now managed in house after a small amount of training.

After completing the website Sun Rising sent this lovely testimonial about working with me...

"We chose Niki because her web design portfolio showed a sense of style that resonated with us: a richness of colour, yet with an appreciation of space. She understood our remit quickly and produced a draft design that made us feel we’d been heard. Progress was efficient, communication clear throughout, the price competitive, and we are very pleased with the result. With some in-house tech competence, Niki also made it easy for us to work alongside her, providing us with useful additional knowledge and guidance. Overall, we would unreservedly recommend Niki."

Website refresh for JBKS Architects

JBKS Architects had an old tired website which was in need of updating.  It was also running on a custom content management system which mean updates were not easy in house.  I redesigned and rebuilt the site in wordpress making updates easier.  The new site is modern and easy to navigate and show cases the lovely portfolio that the company have.

The right colour for your brand

The right colour for your brand

As part of the process of looking at branding, logos and design I often discuss colour with my clients.  It's a very personal thing, but the wrong choice of colour can have a big impact on the impression that you make to potential clients.

If you are a beauty salon and your client base is mainly women then you could use pinks, purples and soft feminine colours.  However if you are a business that wants to appear to men and women then pink may not be the right choice!

We recently visited France and one lunch time were choosing a restaurant to eat in.  There was one restaurant that had a bright pink exterior, pink napkins, basically pink everything.  My husband and I walked straight past it, not even looking at the menu (we both don't really like pink!)  After not really being inspired by anything else on offer we walked back to that restaurant and looked at the menu.  We decided to give it a go and I have to say the food was amazing.  I wondered about their choice of colour and if it puts off many people as it put us off at first.

When choosing colours you also need to look past your own personal preferences.  Think about your customers, your target audience.  What would they like to see?
