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.
Take a look on any of your devices(!) at www.williampurves.co.uk.
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…?
Earlier this year, we worked with David Harrison Ltd of Peebles, the 90 year old car dealership based in Borders and specialising in Ford. A well-known name across the industry in Scotland, the guys were keen to keep the goodwill associated with it, but modernise for the 21st century, in line with their marketing strategy. So, we revised the name to ‘Harrisons’, created a new, clean identity and are now delighted to be working with the team on various items in the marketing folio. On another note, they may have beaten Team39 at the karting but next year the gloves are off and it’ll be Clear and Present Danger with lightsabers ahoy… (sorry! – ed).
We’ve been working with Fife-based The Image Academy on refreshing their branding. These guys provide top-quality online training for budding photographers and have clients all over the world. The new branding has been applied to their training material. Check them out on Facebook for course promotions and lovely pics!
