Bowie Tour London website launches!

We have been working with a fantastic business in London this month, The David Bowie Musical Walking Tour in London. We have just launched their brand new website, take a look here: www.bowietourlondon.co.uk

This has been a brilliant project to work on and it has been great to work with a London based client. Nick Stephenson, who runs the tours, wanted an interactive and modern website with a much higher Google ranking. We have helped him to achieve that and we cannot wait to watch the Google Analytics stats in the coming weeks to see how many visitors find his new website. We have done a lot of keyword research and SEO for this site.

We wish Nick all the best with his Bowie Tours. If you know a Bowie fan why not book them onto a tour? Nick plays songs and tells stories about Bowie's life as he takes you around some Bowie hotspots. He runs two tours, one based in Brixton and the other in Soho.

Needham Carpets site goes live

We have just launched our second website this week, this time for Needham Carpets. Take a look here: https://www.needhamcarpets.co.uk

Needham Carpets previously had a website and we have helped them to completely redesign and build a brand new website, which is more in keeping with their branding. We have also added more features such as a gallery and a page for each service they offer. We also did professional photography for Needham Carpets, to really give their website a personal touch and feel. We felt it was important to show website visitors their shop, staff and products rather than rely on stock images.

We wish Needham Carpets all the best with their new website. We will be keeping an eye on its Google ranking in the coming weeks to ensure we have improved their online presence and increased their hits.

garden tools website design

Boots n Blades website launches

We have just finished and launched the new Boots n Blades website, take a look here: https://www.bootsnblades.co.uk

We have helped Boots n Blades to showcase their range of services including garden machinery sales and hire. They are based in Debenham, Suffolk and their shop sells everything for your gardening needs. If you are in the area why not call in and take a look at the fantastic range of products they stock? They also offer a blade sharpening service too.

We wish Boots n Blades every success with their shop and we hope the website we have built them will be a valuable marketing tool for their business.

cider website design

Templar's Choice Cider Website launched

We have just launched the brand new website for Templar's Choice Cider. They are based in Normandy, France and sell sparkling cider and calvados brandy. Take a look at their new website here: www.templarscider.co.uk

We also did professional photography for this client, to really help to capture their brand and products. Having these photographs means that we have been able to create a website that gives visitors the confidence to buy from. We have also incorporated an online shop, so that their products can be safely purchased online using credit/debit cards or paypal.

Another important aspect of this website is generating sales and ensuring that the products rank well on Google. We have done extensive keyword research and SEO to ensure that we attract hits and ultimately sales. 

We wish Templar's Choice cider all the best with this new website and we look forward to working with them on a range of other marketing in the near future.

Logo Designed for Bowie Tour London

We have a very exciting project on the go this month for The Official David Bowie Walking Musical Tour in London! We have started off by designing this new logo which forms their brand identity. We then went on to design business cards and flyers which have been printed and are being handed out throughout the Brixton and Soho areas of London, where the tours are based. We are now working on their brand new website, more details coming soon.

This is a great project for us and a new customer from London who we are very excited to be working with. Together we are going to work on their marketing and promotion including photography and video production at a later date.

Website launched for Fusion Furniture

July has been extremely busy in the studio! We have just launched a brand new website for Fusion Furniture, take a look here: www.fusion-furniture.co.uk.

Not only did we build their website but we also designed their logo and did professional photography, to really allow us to build a website that showcases what Fusion Furniture can offer. We sent our photographer Adam along to an evening upholstery course and he captured the class and people working on furniture. We also produced a video of a chair being repaired, which you will find on their website. With the photo gallery section and a page for each course we think this website is going to be a great marketing tool for Fusion Furniture.

Another great project for a fantastic upholstery business in Suffolk. What a thriving county we live in! We have another 10 websites launching soon, more details will appear on this blog.

Logo design for Boddy Beautiful

Photography for Templar's Cider

Our professional photographer Adam has been busy this week taking photos for the Templar's Cider website we are about to build. We wanted to capture their brand and create a series of high quality photographs to help set the tone for their website. Adam has taken over 225 photographs in various forms to really help us to create a brand identity. Above is a quick preview image, we tried to capture the chilled cider in a natural environment. More photographs and their new website will be coming soon. We can't wait to build this site! A very exciting project for another new customer based in Normandy.

Video production for DJ Wines

We have filmed and edited a video for DJ Wines this week. We created this video as a promotional tool for their social media and for YouTube. We followed one of their fantastic cocktail recipes using there Elderflower and Gooseberry Wine and made a short video showing how you can make this drink. We hope this video will help them to promote this cocktail and to generate more visits to their website. They will be promoting this drink throughout their summer shows and events. You can find the video on youtube.

New logo designed for Meadow Lodges

We have just finished this logo design for Meadow Lodges in Woodbridge. We are now starting work on a range of other marketing material to help establish their new branding. This has been a great logo design project which has evolved from several different options and thought processes until we finished up with the final logo design.

We will also be building their website later on in the year which we are already planning ahead for. Another happy customer and another brand established for a local business.

Nick Cook Design website goes live

Another very busy month in the studio this month and another website launched. This site is for Nick Cook, a property designer. This website has been designed to allow him to showcase his current property portfolio and also his past projects.

This has been a great website to build and we have linked their ebay shop to this new website. We are also working with them on their online shop, so that people can buy their products online.

The Dennington Queen:
New website, logo and photography

We have just launched our third website this week, this one is for the Dennington Queen Pub. You can take a look here: www.thedenningtonqueen.co.uk.

This has been a great project to work on as we also designed their new logo and did the photography for their website too. So we have helped to rebrand them and update and refresh their marketing. From the start the plan with the website was to make it very visual, with a full menu online that they can keep up to date themselves.

The photography was done by our in-house photographer, Adam. He has really helped to capture the fantastic pub interior and showcase the food they offer. The photographs almost give website visitors a virtual tour of the pub and this helps to set this website aside from some other local pubs in the area. They offer delicious home cooked food, so we wanted to make sure the website showed visitors that.

It has been great to work with The Dennington Queen on this project, we look forward to hearing how the website works and the feedback they receive. This is one of my favourite websites that I have built so far, largely thanks to the photography.

New website and logo designed

We have just finished a new logo and website for Jules Home Interiors based in Southwold, Suffolk. You can take a look here www.juleshomeinteriors.co.uk.

This website has been designed to showcase the interior design style that Jules Home Interiors offers. We also wanted to create a brand identity for them, which has been used on other marketing material such as business cards and their shop sign. The logo along with the carefully chosen colour, helps to give them a brand identity which will help them to stand out. It also means that their marketing material is consistent, which is really important when building a brand.

This has been another great website to work on and we will be adding more content and features in the coming months. Jules Home Interiors is a new business which has been setup this year and we wish them the best of luck! It has been a pleasure to work with them and we are looking forward to working on other projects with them in the future.

landscape gardener website

New logo and website designed

We have just launched a brand new website for Kate Marshall Garden Design, you can take a look here: www.katemarshallgardens.co.uk.

As well as the website we also designed Kate's new logo, which works really well with the colour scheme of the website to form her brand identity.

Kate has designed some fantastic gardens for customers throughout Essex, Suffolk, Norfolk, London and Cambridgeshire. She wanted a website that would showcase her work with a portfolio section, we think the final result works really well. This website has been designed to show visitors what Kate can offer and to give them lots of photographs of her previous work to help inspire them for their own gardens.

It has been a pleasure to work with Kate on this project and we can't wait to speak to her in a few weeks to see what impact having a website has had for her. We expect to see some impressive results from the keywords and SEO that we have added to her website.

We expect to launch another 3 websites later this month, more news coming soon.

Logo Design and website work

March has been a really busy month in the studio! We currently have 9 websites on the go, some of which will be completed and online in early April. We have also been working with The Dennington Queen on their new website and also a refresh of their logo. You can see the new logo design above and their website is well underway now. We are really excited about this website as we have also done the photography for them. This is going to be a real showpiece site along with their new updated branding. More news to follow soon.

Photography for The Dennington Queen

This week Adam (our in-house photographer) has been taking professional photographs for The Dennington Queen Pub, Suffolk. We are building their new website and we are also taking photographs to ensure visitors will see the fabulous food on offer as well as their cosy interior.

Professional photographs really help to tell the story of your business, they also make website visitors more likely to visit or book if they see what you can offer. Generic stock artwork doesn't really send the right message, we always encourage people to use their own products and in this case the photograph above is a dish that was cooked and served at the pub. This is why we offer professional photography as part of our web design service. It means we can build a website that reflects your business, premises, services, staff and products to potential customers. It also means we can plan each page and take the right photographs to suit each page and section of the site. A well planned website with professional photographs is a great marketing tool for any business!

We can't wait to start building The Dennington Queen's new website, keep an eye out for more news soon. In the meantime the photo above is a little preview of the look and feel of this new website. This one is going to be a real showpiece!

courier website

Rapid Dispatch Couriers website launched

We have just launched a brand new website for Rapid Dispatch Couriers, based in Ipswich. They wanted to upgrade their existing site and add more features, so we started working with them on a brand new website. Take a look at their new site here: www.rapid-dispatch.com

Part of this build included photography, to help capture their business and add a personal touch to the website. As a family run company I think these images have really helped to showcase Rapid Dispatch and who they are. The photographs include their vans, staff and premises.

We have included a lot of SEO (titles, descriptions, keywords, image alt tags, etc) to ensure that this new website will rank highly on Google. We have also integrated their social media (Facebook and Twitter accounts) so that customers can see live links of their latest posts.

We think the end result is a fantastic website that will help visitors to have confidence in using Rapid Dispatch couriers for their parcels. We will be keeping a close eye on the website hits (using Google Analytics) in the coming weeks and it will be interesting to see how their traffic increases as Google picks the new site up.

Website photography for Stradbroke Antiques

We have just finished new photography for Stradbroke Antiques, to showcase their new stock for their website. If you haven't visited Stradbroke Antiques you are really missing out. It is an Aladdin's cave of treasures and antiques based in Stradbroke, Suffolk. They also have a cafe so you can enjoy a light lunch and a drink during your visit. With such a wide range of antiques, furniture, jewellery and even a vintage motorbike you are bound to find something to take home with you. Our favourite photo from our visit this month is above.

To see our website photography in action take a look at the Stradbroke Antiques website we built for them: www.stradbrokeantiques.co.uk

vets website

Framlingham Vets website launched

We have had a very busy start to 2018 launching our third website of the month so far. We have another seven websites going live soon as well. Take a look at the brand new website we have just built for Framlingham Vets here: www.framlinghamvets.com

This website has been a great project to work on with Framlingham Vets. We not only built their website but we also did the photography for this site too. The photographs really helped to showcase this fantastic Vets and the brilliant facilities they have. We find often companies are afraid to have photographs of their staff, shop or premises online, but it really helps to add a personal touch and make the website a bit more friendly.

We think this website has come together really well and tells the story of Framlingham Vets and what they can offer to pet owners in the area. We have used their logo and branding alongside photographs of their staff and premises (rather that using generic stock images). We have a live link to their facebook, which creates a sort of news page that they can easily update as they post on social media. We have also added a gallery pages which they can manage and upload to themselves with ease.

We are working with the Vets on a few other projects too and we look forward to seeing the results of their new website. We have installed Google Analytics so we can help them to track their hits and to see what visitors interact with on the website. This is one of our favourite websites that we have built and we really enjoyed working with Framlingham Vets on this website. This is another local business we have helped to re-launch online, Suffolk really is a busy county with so many small businesses doing well in the area.

artist website design

University & College Prints website complete

We have just finished a website for artist Peter Shaw, who specialises in University and College prints using pen and ink. Take a look at his work and the website we built for him here: www.universityandcollegeprints.com

It has been a pleasure to work with Peter and we have been amazed at the incredible detail in his drawings. You can buy prints online and gift wrapping is available, these make great graduation gifts. We wish Peter all the best with his new website and we will be helping him to monitor and improve his Google ranking over the coming weeks.

dentist website design

Beaulieu Dental site goes live

It has been a busy start to 2018 for us already! We have just launched a new website for Beaulieu Dental in Chelmsford, Essex. You can see their new website here: www.beaulieudental.co.uk

This dental practice is linked to the Wickham Market Dental Practice (whose website we built in November 2017) and it is great to have worked with them on this website for their new practice. We have used their logo and branding and kept the website clear and easy to use. 

This is a brand new dental practice and we will be helping them to add more information to the website as their business grows. They also have access to the website so that they can easily update the site themselves with all their latest news. We wish them the best of luck with their new business!

Ussher Tours website launched

We have been busy working with Ussher Tours on their new website lately and you can see the final site here: www.usshertours.com

This has been a fantastic project to work on. The final result has achieved exactly what Ussher Tours required, which is a website to showcase their trekking holidays in Nepal. They can add and change text and upload more photographs themselves too, which is just what they wanted. We have also added a lot of SEO compared to their old website which didn't really have any keywords at all. We wish Ussher Tours all the best with their new website and we will be monitoring it's performance with them using Google Analytics.

Cardinal Chambers website goes live

This month we are proud to launch the brand new website for Cardinal Chambers, take a look here: www.cardinalchambers.com.

Cardinal Chambers are a group of specialist Family Law Barristers, experts in all aspects of relationship breakdown and legal matters relating to children and finances. They are based in Ipswich, Suffolk. We have re-designed and built them a completely new website with more features and information for visitors. They also wanted to be able to update and maintain their website, which is something we were able to offer them with a bit of basic training.

I think the website has come together really well and I hope it generates more leads and enquires for them. We have certainly increased the SEO compared to their old website which should mean they rank higher on Google for various relevant search terms now.

Wickham Market Dental Practice website launched

We have had another really busy month this month, with several websites close to completion now. Today we have launched the new Wickham Market Dental Practice website, you can take a look at here: www.wickhammarketdentist.co.uk 

Our main aim for this website was to showcase the full range of services that this dentist can offer. We also wanted to incorporate photographs of procedures as well as videos, to help visitors understand some of the procedures in more detail. Including a testimonial page with case studies was also a good addition to give people the confidence in using this dentist. Simple information such as opening hours, an interactive google map and a staff page all help to give visitors useful information about this practice.

We think the final website has come together really well and we hope that the Wickham Market Dental Practice get good results from their brand new website.

Website launched for Rosemary Cattee Interior Design

We are pleased to announce that we have launched a brand new website for Rosemary Cattee Interior Design. You can take a look at the website here: www.rosemarycattee.co.uk.

The main goal with this website was to showcase the services that Rosemary Cattee Interior Design can offer and also to use their new branding and colour scheme for brand consistency. They had some stunning professional photographs taken, which we really wanted to use as large as possible to showcase their incredible projects. We also made separate photo gallery pages for some of their recent projects. Again to show visitors the style of interior design they can offer. We think the finished website is simple, clean and works really well as a promotional tool for this interior designer. We will be adding more content and developing this website further in the coming months.

Another new website goes live

We have just launched another new website for Jack Properties. You can take a look at their new website at www.jackproperties.co.uk. We will be adding a lot more to this site in the coming weeks. It never ceases to amaze us how many incredible businesses there are in Suffolk, we are very lucky to work with so many varied companies in this region. We can't wait to keep developing this website for Jack Properties, we have already designed their logo and some site boards too. We look forward to working with them on more projects in the future.

DJ Wines new website now online

We are very proud to announce that we have just launched the new DJ Wines website! Take a look here: www.djwines.co.uk. We have had a long working relationship with DJ Wines, we have designed many things for them including: their logo, wine bottle labels, liqueur labels, flyers, business cards, gift vouchers, roll up banners, brochures, adverts, photography and now their website too.

The main aim of this new website is to increase their traffic and allow them to sell their wines and liqueurs online. We have included a lot of SEO (which their old website was lacking) to ensure that they appear in Google search results for various relevant keywords. By increasing their hits and having a much clearer message about who they are and what they do on this new site, we hope to see more enquiries and orders generated for them. Which should make this website a really good investment and well worth the upgrade.

We look forward to the next project DJ Wines bring us. It has been a great adventure so far being part of the marketing and advertising campaigns.

car valet website

Reflected Image website complete and online

We have just finished the Reflected Image website and it is now live online at www.reflectedimage.co.uk. Take a look and see the results of our web design service for yourselves. We have designed this website to showcase what Reflected Image can offer and we have incorporated their branding to ensure the site matches their other marketing material. A lot of planning and work has gone into making this website user-friendly, easy to navigate and we have used high quality photographs to showcase Reflected Image’s car valet results.

We included a lot of features on this website including a live social media page and a photo gallery (which the client can maintain and update themselves easily). Stewart wanted a website that could show visitors the level of services he can offer with clear package and price details. I think together we have achieved this and we can’t wait to hear what effect this website will have for his business. This is Reflected Image’s first website and we are proud to have built this for them. We added a lot of SEO to this website to ensure that it will rank well on what is a competitive market locally.

If you are thinking of upgrading your website, or like Reflected Image you feel it might be time to launch your first website then why not get in touch today? We are happy to talk through our package and discuss how we can help with no obligation to go ahead. Just give us a call on 01728 720789 or email keith@todaytypeanddesign.com and see how we can help you to grow online.

swimming website suffolk

iSwim website finished and online

Today we have finished a new website for iSwim. We basically started again with a brand new website for this client, the old site was not working for them in a number of ways. So we helped them to get more traffic and add more features by starting again. We have helped them to showcase their services in a clearer format with this new website. We have integrated their social media, which creates a news section that they can manage via Facebook. We also helped them to showcase their services by including a photo gallery page, they can upload images to this page which is a great addition to their site. We made sure their brand identity has been used and the fonts and colour scheme now fits in with their other marketing material. Perhaps best of all they can update and manage this new site, which means when visitors find the site it is all up to date with relevant news and course dates. We also added a lot more SEO, so they should see a large increase in hits compared to their old site (which had very little SEO).

Take a look at their site here: www.iswim.biz
