Website Brief

We love doing work with fellow creatives and when we were approached by a wrought iron specialist we were definitely intrigued. Creating ornate iron gates, fencing and more, when we looked at the photos of their work we could instantly see the quality of workmanship on offer. They needed a website to match and we were nothing but excited to start working on this one, with some great visual assets for their gallery from photos taken of completed projects.

The website brief included the ability to rank well locally for chosen keywords, as well as the ability to sell bespoke pieces such as welly stands and fire pits. There was also to be a page to talk about their other business, an onsite welding company, working on bespoke welding jobs for both commercial and domestic properties.

The Solution

With the ability to update the site, ease of use and the potential for adding blogs/news posts later on down the line, we decided WordPress was the way to go with this one.

As part of the design process we established that the client was quite keen on a relatively dark site, so we worked with black backgrounds with white text, but mixing with plenty of white sections and colourful images mixed in to ensure it wasn’t too dark. With black and white forming the main content sections, we needed a strong accent colour to bring it all together. With a lot of project images containing front or back gardens it made sense to go with a green. After working through a few shades with the client we landed on a lime green, nice and vibrant to contrast the black and white.

For the frequency and quantity of the products for sale, an eCommerce solution would have been over the top and bring unnecessary additional cost to the project. Instead we put in a simple PayPal button system, keeping it really easy to maintain and not moving away from the traditional WordPress posting mechanism.

All in all the client loved their new site and are happy that they finally have something to reflect the quality of their workmanship. If you’d like to know more about our web design Cornwall offerings, reach out to us today for a friendly chat.
