Custom e-commerce platform built on the Codeigniter PHP framework
Gigpads asked us to create an e-commerce system for them that would connect to Faber's digital sheet music database. We built a smart, intuitive public-facing website that integrates seamlessly with Faber's website. Includes: A comprehensive administration page, audio upload with conversion to the required format (with fallback for older browsers) and search engine friendly urls made sure that Gigpads hit the ground running and way ahead of their competitors.
Hosted calendar and booking system for holiday home owners
Following the success of the Kirkbeck House website (below) we were approached by the owners to develop a product for other holiday let businesses. The result is Elephant Calendar - a hosted, PHP driven, complete calendar and booking system. Designed to seamlessly integrate with existing websites, it offers clients total control with a simple to use admin interface, tracking, automated email responses and reminders, and a fully searchable database for enquiries and reports.
Responsive website using html5, css3 and jquery
We were approached by two funky designers based in Glasgow to create a mobile friendly (responsive) website for one of their clients. We loved their minimalist design and set to work on the code to make it work. We integrated a Facebook wall widget and cut the site to their specifications. The result is a clean, stylish website that works on any device.
Video upload and project creation using Drupal
The Centre for Urban Education wanted to develop a video project-based website that young people could control. We based their site on Drupal - a content management system offering complete administrative control over the finished product. The end result allows the creation of projects automatically by using one form. It also allowed children involved with the project to upload photographs and write reviews on the project. We installed and configured FFMPEG (video software) to allow automatic generation of video thumbnails, conversion from any video format they could chuck at it, JW Player for playback and a host of other modules to make an awesome site.
Satirical website from the north of the heart
Martian FM has been running since 2000, when it was thrown together using Microsoft FP, JD Large and Chemical Glue. Since then, writer Ian Martin (The Thick of It, VEEP, Architects' Journal, the Guardian) has literally never done anything as good. The latest relaunch (which might work on iphones) is basically more of the same but black text on a white background. And a twitter feed. WARNING: Contains strong language.
Calendar and booking platform built on the Codeigniter PHP framework
Kirkbeck House is a very busy self-catering holiday let business that was starting to struggle with ad-hoc administration. They asked us to help and we built an admin interface and that allowed full control over the booking process. With automatic email notifications, PDF generation of booking forms and error checking for bookings their workload has been drastically reduced. A simple to use customer website sits in front of a sophisticated administration suite. Our clients liked it so much that they have partnered with us to create Elephant Calendar - a system that other holiday let businesses can use (see above).
Kentdale First Aid Training
Content management training course website
Angie and Andrew asked us for a website to promote their growing business. They wanted something to provide maximum exposure with minimal maintenance. We built their new website on the Drupal platform with a really simple user control panel to upload a new course. Once uploaded the new course automatically populated the upcoming courses page, diary page and their facebook and twitter feeds. A year later their business is going from strength to strength and the website looks after itself.
