What Kirsty was looking for
Kirsty was starting out with her new flowers & floristy business ‘Flowers by Kirsty’. She knew having an attractive & professional looking website was crucial. In fact she already had somebody lined up to design her site, but she needed to get going faster than they were able to provide so she turned to us. We put together a stylish & affordable solution for her with a quick turnaround, so she could launch without delay & with confidence her potential clients would be impressed by her website
What we didAlthough Kirsty was looking for a swift solution she had a particular idea of the kind of look which would best reflect her floral business, & it was important the website reflected that.
We identified a number of premium themes which we felt suited the style to be used as a starting point for her site, and we swiftly agreed on one which was perfect for the purpose. Having done so we got to work, building up & initially configuring the site. We then populated it with the content she provided, to her required specification with our professional input. Included in that content were a large number of photos, which we processed to be web-ready & embedded in dynamic pop-up ‘lightbox’ galleries. Along with a contact form to ensure potential clients could reach Kirsty we completed the functionality required then moved on to stylizing to make her site truly unique.
With use of a custom logo & headline font, brand-matched colour scheme and other stylistic customisations including textured background & polaroid-style presentation of photos (with roll-over resizing) we worked with Kirsty to produce a design which excited her & was certain too to excite potential clients about the wonderful floral services she could provide them.
We feel the site is a great online shop-window for Kirsty’s really beautiful flower & wedding services, plus a good example of how a stylish website can be achieved on a reasonable budget.
Most importantly though we’re really happy Kirsty was pleased with the process & the final look, saying:
“Geoff was recommended to me by a friend to design and make my website. From start to the final product, Geoff was brilliant! I didn’t have a clue when it came to websites, but Geoff talked me through every step, explaining everything in simple English that i could understand! I love my website as Geoff has really reflected my business and my personality perfectly. I will definitely be using Geoff for any more web help and would recommend him to anyone wanting a professional service with a really personal touch. Thanks Geoff!”
