Website Design – English Language Ireland

English Language Ireland

The background

English Language Ireland is an English language school in Carlow, delivering lessons to students from across the world.

English Language Ireland prides itself on its location and activities as well as its high standard of tuition. However, an existing website was not properly portraying these aspects of the school. Other issues were that it was complex to navigate, and did not rank highly for key search terms. They called us in to help.

What we did

We first spoke with the client to learn all about the business and its USPs. We then conducted extensive online market research, and identified the key areas and size of the potential market.

At a further meeting with the clients, we advised English Language Ireland of our findings. Together, we devised a digital marketing and content marketing strategy, and we then got to work on content.

Our copywriter created SEO-optimised text regarding general aspects of the school. He also compiled details of all courses offered in a consistent manner, so website users could easily compare one with another before deciding what was best for them.

Once all content was agreed, our design and development team got to work.

The website design and build

Key to this build was coming up with a more user-friendly website design, where everything could be found easily.

Our designer achieved this with a clever combination of text and graphic menus. He also used sidebar menus on several internal pages, to allow continuous easy navigation.

He presented details of all courses in a easy-to-read table form on their respective pages. The site also features strategic use of attractive images.

At the back end, we carried out extensive SEO work. The result was that immediately upon going live, the new site ranked on Page 1 of Google for search terms including:

  • English classes in Ireland
  • Learn English in Ireland
  • English schools in Ireland

All in all, another successful build!

Website Design Ireland – Complete Vehicle Solutions

Complete Vehicle Solutions

The background

This project was an extensive re-build of the website of an existing client, Complete Vehicle Solutions.

Complete Vehicle Solutions are a unique service provider in meeting commercial transport needs in Ireland. Based in Dublin they are the only operator who will source and supply a client with a van or truck, fit it out exactly as required with shelving and/or refrigeration units, and provide a range of finance options including contract hire, leasing, and outright purchase.

The business was established only in 2016, with a basic ‘start-up’ website. It enjoyed phenomenal growth in its first year – so much so, that the client returned to us for a more comprehensive and ‘professional’ website. We were happy to oblige.

What we did

We engaged with the client to learn how the business had grown since we built the original site. We conducted further market research to help formulate an SEO strategy, and we agreed this with the client.

Our senior copywriter then produced updated text content for the site, and we sourced images from both the client and selected partners.

Once we agreed the content and outline plan with the client, our design team got to work.

The website design and build

We got rid of the old ‘basic’ look, and introduced e a far sleeker and more corporate website design.

A key feature of the home page is strategic placing of dynamic graphics and links, to lead the user to content reflecting the key elements of the client’s business. Text snippets on the home page reinforce how Complete Vehicle Solutions is unique, and the benefits of dealing with them. We also strategically used of the logos of major clients, and of the makes of vans/trucks supplied.

We laid out internal pages in an equally attractive and strategic manner. We interspersed text content with images, headings, and bullet points, for a better user experience. A common sidebar and ‘floating’ head means all links are in easy reach at all times. We included clear calls to action, and easy means to access the contact form.

Our client was delighted with the results. You can see why by viewing the finished site here.

Website Design UK – A Sparkle Party

A Sparkle Party

The background

A Sparkle Party is an entertainment provider for children’s birthday parties and similar events. They are based in Sutton in the UK and they serve the greater Surrey area.

A Sparkle Party deliver colourful fun-filled parties, tailor-made for each child, but an existing website did not properly portray that. Instead, it suffered from poor design, and generally looked stale. Its other major issue was that it did not rank highly for any key search terms. They asked us to help.

What we did

We performed our customary market research to analyse the size of the potential market. In consultation with the client, and bearing in mind the current size of the operation, we determined to concentrate mainly on the Sutton area for SEO purposes, rather than broadening it to all of Surrey or Greater London.

We then re-wrote all content on the older site according to best SEO practice, while still making it attractive to parents and children alike. The client approved the new content, and we then moved on to the build itself.

The Website Design and build

Visual aesthetics are particularly important in any website with children in mind, so we paid great attention to making the site look as attractive as possible.

We supplemented photos from the client with stock photos of favourite children’s TV, film, and storybook characters for A Sparkle Party. We also sourced other imagery to add to the overall look.

Then we built the site so that it easy to navigate. We give all info needed on any particular party option on that particular page, to save the user from having to browse between pages to get all the detail they require. And as with all our website designs, it is fully responsive for smaller screens such as phones and tablets.

We also carried out extensive SEO work on each page and image. The result was that immediately after re-launch, ranked in the top 5 of for search terms including ‘children’s parties Sutton’, ‘birthday parties Sutton’, and ‘princess parties Sutton’.

Our client was delighted with the new site, and customers have given positive feedback to the site too.

Website Design – Flexi-Fi


The background

Flexi-Fi is a new financial product for Irish consumers to allow them an easy way to pay for household items and other selected goods.

It is offered by the international FlexiGroup Ltd., who are headquartered in Australia and have offices in Dublin, and who already provided Irish consumers with a FlexiRent option for obtaining new goods.

We built and maintain their FlexiRent site, and enjoy a good relationship with the entire FlexiGroup Ireland team, so it was only natural that they would also ask to build their new site. We were happy to oblige.

What we did

We held discussions with the client to obtain all relevant information and knowledge about the Flexi-Fi offering and how it would operate, and we then analysed how best to present this online.

We drew up a proposed structure and presented it to the clients, who immediately gave it the go-ahead. The clients also provided us with raw text content for the site.

This needed only minor attention in terms of honing the marketing message and making the process clear to customers. Once the structure and content was agreed, we were good to go.

The website design and build

We built the Flexi-Fi website in the same manner and style as the existing FlexiRent site, albeit with a different colour scheme in order to differentiate the two products.

The site is fully responsive and easy to navigate, and includes a full online portal where consumers can apply for finance and quickly receive a decision.

The site is to be further developed in the future as more Flexi-Fi partners come on board.

Website Design – Filippi Ireland

filippi ireland

The background

Filippi boats are the boats of choice for top-class competitive rowers worldwide, including Irish Olympic silver medallists, Gary and Paul O’Donovan. They are also in widespread use in rowing clubs, both in Ireland and internationally.

We approached by the sole Irish agent for Fillipi boats (based in Carlow) because an existing website was not generating a satisfactory number of leads and inquiries for such sought-after products.

The client asked for a complete re-design and re-build, and that’s exactly what we did.

What we did

The specialised nature of the subject meant we could forego our usual diligent market research, and instead rely upon the expert knowledge of the client.

He provided us with detailed information about the target market and his vision for the site. Meanwhile, we identified several back-end problems with the existing site, which pinpointed the reasons why it was not performing as the client would have liked.

We then combined the client’s rowing knowledge with our Website Design and SEO expertise to produce a new site that began performing better from day one after its launch.

The Website Design and build

We first implemented a framework according to the client’s vision, and we then populated it with all relevant details of the various Filippi craft and rowing accessories on offer.

We placed enquiry forms and other calls to action strategically throughout  the site, to maximise the possibility of lead generation through online enquiries. We then performed sufficient SEO measures to have the site immediately ranked at number one in the Google search engine results pages for key terms such as ‘Filippi boats Ireland’, and on page one for broader terms such as ‘racing boats Ireland’ and ‘rowing boats Ireland’.

Within a month, the site was generating an average of five leads per week for the client. The client also enjoyed a high conversion rate from those leads – leaving him absolutely delighted with our work!

Website Design – Cantec

Cantec Ireland

The background

Cantec are leading suppliers of office printers, managed print services, document management systems, and graphic design and printing services.

Cantec are headquartered in Waterford, and have other locations and personnel nationwide. They already had a large and complex website showcasing all products and services. While it was visually attractive, it did not rank highly, and therefore was not delivering them a satisfactory number of leads and inquiries.

They came to us for help.

What we did

As always, we first had a full discussion with the client, to gain maximum understanding of their business and operations. We also performed a thorough audit of their existing site, to investigate the problems with it, and we discovered there were many. These included that the site was not responsive for smaller screens, and had relatively slow loading times in certain sections.

We also discovered several ‘legacy’ issues with even older forms of a company websites which remained online, so in essence, they were competing with themselves for rankings.

We drew up a detailed action plan, put it to Cantec, and got the go-ahead to get to work.

The website design and build

Most of the text content on the existing site was relatively satisfactory. While some re-writing took place to bring things up to date and to strengthen the marketing message, this project involved less actual copywriting than most.

The bulk of the work was therefore more technical in nature, to achieve the desired results. It included:

  • Code mark-up and optimisation of all media files for speed and performance.
  • Installation of filterable eCommerce catalogue mode functionality, with easy switch to full eCommerce when needed.
  • Implementation of advanced, flexible and filterable portfolio.
  • Delivery of optimised Search Engine framework.
  • Adjustment of website design elements and layout, in close consultation with the client, to achieve their visual appearance requirements without compromising functionality and responsiveness of the site for various browser types and/or screen sizes.
  • Implementation of advanced contact form with conditional fields functionality.
  • Open Graph protocol markup included to increase performance of website pages and posts. within various social media channels, and to increase conversions and click-through rates.

Our clients were highly impressed with our attention to detail and our consultation with them at all stages, and are very pleased with the final result.

Website Design – SMART St. Mullins


The global village

The background

SMART (St. Mullins Amenity & Recreational Tourism Group) is a community organisation working constantly for the betterment of the historic village of St. Mullins in South County Carlow.

It works in conjunction with several statutory bodies and other voluntary groups too, mainly to preserve and promote the rich heritage of the area, but also to organise social occasions and other events.

They wanted a website to showcase their work so far, and also to keep the St. Mullins community and diaspora informed of current projects and plans for the future. That’s what we built for them.

What we did

We spoke with representatives of SMART to get a full understanding of what they do, and what what they wanted to achieve with their new website design.

We took a large collection of raw material from them – both text and imagery – and used it to decide the most appropriate structure and headings for the site. Our senior copywriter then re-wrote much of the text, to make it suitable for online use. He also produced several new pieces about projects to date.

Once the content was agreed, it was on the website design and build.


The website design and build

Our designer first selected a colour scheme to reflect the heritage aspect of the project, but that would look attractive in a contemporary manner too.

He add all text and images as per plan agreed, taking careful steps along the way to optimise image size, add necessary tags to text and images, and all other ‘back end’ steps that ultimately make a difference to how a website operates and how Google finds it.

Full testing was carried out across  a range of screen sizes and browsers, and provision was made for members of SMART to easily add news items, photos, etc., to the site as time goes on.

Website Design – Kavanagh Engineering

kavanagh engineering

Expertise in many field

The background

This was one of three new websites we were commissioned to design and build for a client whose premises is in Thomastown, Co. Kilkenny.

Kavanagh Engineering  is a long-established firm with expertise in all aspects of electrical engineering. It has also branched out over the years into fields such as shop and cinema fit-outs, property maintenance, photovoltaic solar panels, and retail theft prevention. Our brief was to produce a compact yet informative brochure website to showcase all the company’s operations.

We eagerly got to work.

What we did

We learned all about Kavanagh Engineering through a series of meetings with the owner and managing director, and resolved to determine the best way to meet the brief we were given.

With company operations being so wide-ranging, the biggest challenge we faced was presenting a relatively large amount of information in a relatively small space. We overcame this by agreeing a number of headings and keywords to focus upon. Our senior copywriter then spoke further with Kavanagh Engineering, before producing draft text content and having it approved by the client. From there, we moved on to the build.

The website design and build

Our designer’s view was that a sleek and minimalist style was called for here. He adopted a colour scheme to complement the client’s existing logo, and devised an icon-driven interface for home page funnels to lead to further details of all the client’s operations. Colour highlights were used for strategic sections of internal pages content, and a floating bar was used to ensure that the top-level menu and contact details remained visible at all times.

At the back end of the site, full SEO measures were implemented at all stages. This included several steps that are standard to all our website builds, such as site map creation, meta tag and URL optimisation, and webmaster verification.

Our client agreed that the new site was a massive improvement on an older one that didn’t properly portray the company, and so we look forward to our design delivering better results.

Website Design – Photovoltaic Systems

Photovoltaic Systems

A powerful operation

The background

This was the second of three websites we were tasked to build for Kavanagh Engineering, an expert and long-established provider of electrical engineering and other services based in Thomastown, Co Kilkenny.

The company had recently expanded into the field of photovoltaic (PV) solar panels for both domestic and commercial use – i.e. solar panels that use natural light to generate electricity for use in the premises where they are installed. They wanted a dedicated website for their Photovoltaic Systems – and we were happy to oblige.

What we did

We first performed diligent market research. This confirmed that installation of Photovoltaic Systems in Ireland is a growing business, with significant online traffic. Armed with this information, we then devised a website structure to firstly show the benefits of photovoltaic solar panels, and secondly to show the benefits of choosing Kavanagh Engineering for their supply and installation.

We agreed the plan with our client. Our copywriter then got to work on researching the field and producing content that would at once be informative and technical, while remaining accessible to the average householder or business owner seeking further information. Once the content was also agreed with the client, we then moved on to the website design and build.

The website design and build

A consistent look and feel to the client’s three new websites was called for, and so our designer adopted the same general style as the client’s main Kavanagh Engineering site. This meant the same colour scheme and similar use of icon-driven marketing funnels on the home page, to reflect the effective and attractive look of the first site.

Similarly, internal pages followed the same design principles, with strategic use of colour highlights and placement of calls to action. All customary SEO work was carried out at all stage of the build. We soon had a site which the client was happy with, and which we were confident would soon begin to rank highly for all key search terms.
