A stylish & highly professional homepage

What Simon was looking for

Simon, a solicitor specialising in employment law, had decided to set out on his own. Working in a sector where the utmost professionalism is vital he of course wanted a highly professional appearance to the website, but with more of an individual feel than the countless ‘stock photo of an office’ corporate solicitor websites. He wanted something clean & clear rather than bright & garish.

He also wanted some specific functionality coded into the website, namely password-protected areas to share updates & information with individual clients plus a ‘Resources’ area where general information can be accessed only by visitors who agree to sign up with their contact details.

As a newly launching venture it was of course also key that the project was complete on budget, and on time.

What we did

With the process all laid out & the needs of the site established we got started by identifying a number of premium themes we felt would suit well as the starting point for the style & functionality needs of the site. Having agreed on one which was perfect for the purpose we got to work on the build & development.

First a secured build of WordPress was put in place, configured to the core needs & the theme implemented. While a custom holding-page was in place we developed custom templates to provide the specific functionality required. A mock-up of the individually stylised version of the website design was produced & once reviewed & amendments agreed the design was put in place on the site, along with customized photos to suit the layout & the text copy provided. Testing & a review of the site followed & once all was polished & agreed it was ready to go live.

On completion we provided our standard ‘Implementation & Usage Report’ to breakdown for Simon exactly how his website had been technically set up, how he could make day-to-day use of it, & how he could look after & expand it in future.

The outcome:

We feel the final website is just what was needed for the job, with a design & functionality not available from any off-the-shelf theme out there. It provides a professional online ‘shop-front’ and hub for Simon’s work, & was delivered on time & on budget so we’re very happy.

More importantly though Simon was very pleased with the the final website & the overall process, saying:

“I am really pleased with my website. It looks good and is easy to update. The service from Web Propelled was great and represented good value for money”

[N.B After a few years of great service from his website Simon joined a firm with an existing site so his website is no longer active. We wish Simon all the best for the future!]
