We recently updated the William Purves website — first designed and built by us in 2011 — using responsive design to adapt to multiple screen sizes (desktop computers, tablets, and smartphones). Our original design held up well in the fast-paced world of web design, so bringing it up to date with contemporary design and coding techniques was a breeze.

Julie has been mostly going to concerts, messing about on Instagram and doodling a lot about orange stuff. Now that she’s in her (whisper it!) mid 30s, Julie has seen fit to enter a triatholon. But before y’all laugh heartily, it’s a basic one that even 8 year olds can enter. The goal is to finish it at all, regardless of how many kids beat her to the finish post. Aside from shuffling past lampposts, Julie has been busy with Kids Love Clothes with lots of interest from businesses looking to champion a great wee local charity.

EMMS International is a Christian international healthcare charity founded in 1841. The organisation works with partners in India, Malawi and Nepal to improve health and healthcare, and facilitates respite for people in Scotland with serious illnesses. EMMS required a redeveloped site to help increase online donations, raise awareness of their good work and encourage more engagement.
Date: late 2014
What we did: web design; web development (fully responsive, eCommerce, donations platform with payment integration); CMS training; hosting; web maintenance.
What they said:
‘The 39steps team are a pleasure to work with and have been invaluable as we watched our new website go from post-it notes to “go live”.
The new website launched at the beginning of the biggest appeal in EMMS International’s history, which saw 40% more website visitors and over 10 times more online donations.
We’re thrilled to have a site that helps us to communicate clearly with our supporters and meets the needs of a growing charity.’
Communications Officer, EMMS International
A while back, we mentioned our fab client Claire Rennie, of berry scrumptious! was launching a new product. Well, it’s here, it’s drinkable and it’s delicious! Summerhouse Drinks is Scotland’s first lemonade, made right in bonnie Scotland with scrummy flavours such as ‘Hint o’ Mint’ and the classic ‘Misty Lemonade’. We created a simple, effective logo, and are working on the next generation of labels for the bottles. Everyone can enjoy a taste of sunshine no matter what the weather, even in Scotland. Now, where’s the gin…?
A couple of months ago, Julie teamed up with techy accountant gurus One Accounting, for a short webinar on the 7 key elements to include in your design brief. She also covers a few hints on some Dos and Don’ts when dealing with your designer! You can check it out here and if you’d like a template design brief, download yours.
