We’ve been selected to redesign and upgrade the London Transport Museum’s website. Built using the Joomla CMS it hasn’t had a design makeover in a long time so we are delighted to be tasked with taking it on to a new level. We’ll be sticking with Joomla but moving to the latest version. Working with such an iconic brand is an exciting challenge! We managed the move from their old CMS to Joomla a few years ago and have been working with them on a number of projects since then so it is great to get to work on the new site.
We’ve just been informed that we’ve won the tender to develop a new tourism website for one of the UKs most prestigious and beautiful holiday destinations. We can’t say more at the moment about who the client is but we can say the website will be developed in Drupal and make use of the latest web technologies to deliver a user experience that reflects the quality and singular nature of the place concerned. Watch this space.
We’ve been busy. Too busy on other people’s websites to spend time sorting out our own. The last one was worn through at the elbows and knees having been designed and built nearly 10 years ago (built to last, clearly). This time we decided that we’d experiment with the ubiquitous WorldPress and customise a third party off-the-shelf theme. We rarely use WordPress with our client base as it is not an “Enterprise Strength” content management system; but for a perfectly sized software and web development company we thought it worth a spin.
Like all bright ideas handed down from management it turned out to be more complicated than we first thought. However, we persisted as the alternative was to start from scratch and drag staff off client projects to work on it; and we couldn’t give it to the interns! WordPress is an interesting platform for simple sites and for those who blog, but we certainly won’t be using it for anything more substantial.
