Latest Website Development and Graphical Designs

Here is my most recent website creations and graphic designs. My ultimate goal for each project is to make sure every design stands out with a unique style, has a precise function and has a clear purpose.

Kitsham Holiday Cottages Website Design

Caroline from Kitsham Holidays approached me to look at the branding and give it a refresh look that was more appealing to a younger generation of audience. This would then need to be followed by a new website design.

The branding that was produced uses a colourful and relaxing teal/blue colour scheme which appeals to both young and middle aged audiences. The shape of the logo follows a smooth curve effect to give give it a funky feel which you would not typically see with a holiday cottage.

Following on from the style and feel of the branding, I decided to incorporate some bird illustrations to give the design some characteristics and life to make it bounce out a little more. This also helped the reader to follow the layout and flow of the page.

Instead of using subtle background colours to separate the different sections, I wanted to furthermore follow the style of the branding by using a funky yet quirky dashed to separate the sections. This also broke one of the designs rules of symmetrically as the lines are not perfectly equal to each other, but felt this was the right decision as we are also appealing to the younger generation.

Porthbud Beer Can Designs for Bude Brewery, Cornwall

Adam at Bude Brewery in Cornwall, approached me to produce a unique graphic for a new beer product – Porthbhud. Below are the project specifics.

  • The design must target the 25 years+ age group.
  • The designs should convey a sense of fun whilst also incorporating a modern touch.
  • The labels must include all legal requirement
  • Must include Barrel Rock within the design

As soon as I was given this brief I went to Barrel Rock with a camera and took some photos. Using these photos, I started drawing Barrel Rock and the surrounding features. However, I soon felt the design was lacking something, so I started sketching an oculus as I could wrap the legs around the Barrel Rock which would fit in nicely.

After that, the look came together really quickly and the end result put a huge smile on the faces of the guys at Bude Brewery. I can’t express how much fun this design was to put together!

Branding Tweak and Website Design for Bude Golf Club

Bude & North Cornwall Golf Club were looking to update their current website to one that makes it easy for internal employees to update the site without requiring any prior knowledge of html, whilst also improving the site’s design for use as a marketing tool in attracting more members to the club.

The existing site was outdated and unfriendly to those wanting to view from their tablet or phone. The website was hard coded that required knowledge of HTML and CSS to make changes. With that in mind I refreshed the site, making it easy for them to update by using WordPress platform and of course, ensured it was appealing and easy to navigate on mobile and all other devices. Whether you are looking for membership prices or tournament results, you will be able to get there quickly and easily with their new website.

If you’re keen to give golf a go then take a look around the site for yourself.

Website and Branding for Arthur Bryants in Bude, Cornwall

Arthur Bryants contacted me to rebrand their company with a new image, as they felt it was getting a bit stale and needed some modernising.

This project involved producing a logo that could be used across all of their marketing and printing materials as well as producing a responsive website to work effortlessly across all devices.

As a family run company, it was essential to convey the quality and uniqueness of their services as well as their incredible reputation which has been built over 50 years. Therefore, special attention had to be played to the typography used.

I created a logo that was balanced, clean, modern and suitable to sit on any background. The yellow butterfly adds a distinguished quality to the label. The style of the logo then dictated the style and layout of the website, by utilising the yellow colour as a highlight colour throughout the website.

The Smugglers Challenge – Branding/Print Materials and Animated Website

Liam and the team from 3 Peeks Row which saw athletes scale Britain’s three highest mountains: Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Mount Snowdon by running, cycling and rowing the entire 478 miles, successfully raising 25k for charity, have decided to take on yet another challenging fundraiser  called – The Smugglers Challenge.

The reason behind this new challenge is due to Brown being diagnosed with a brain tumour. The aim is to raise as much money as possible for both the renowned national charity – Cancer Research UK, and The Force, supporting those diagnosed with cancer locally.

Having completed work previously for 3 Peeks Row, Liam approached me asking whether I would like to sponsor the new challenge by producing all the challenge’s branding/graphics and its website.

I produced (what I think) is quite a quirky and very eye catching logo. I also produced a bespoke website that doesn’t utilise templates. This allowed me to develop an interactive website combined with animations in such a way that the content of the pages was within the paddle board. I then integrated further animation showing splashes falling off down the side of the website – you don’t see that often within a website do you?

If you are looking for an interactive website then feel free to contact me via my contact page to to discuss your requirements.

Branding and Packaging for The Happy Turtle, Cornwall

I was approached to produce branding for The Happy Turtle Company in Cornwall. The company provides plastic free solutions to companies in and around Cornwall, working indirectly with A Greener Bude and the Bude Cleaner Seas Project.

The branding consists of green colour to coincide with the environment surroundings as well as a clean quirky but clean typography. As the name suggests, a hand drawn cartoon turtle was drawn up and illustrated that acts as a mascot for the company. From here straws, letterhead, compliments slips and cups were designed based around the green and turtle branding.

Whether your an organisation, small business or a medium business feel free to get in touch to discuss your requirements.

All Aboard The Barge in Bude…

As one of Bude’s most unique restaurants, The Barge offers a menu created with fresh local produce but with a twist, providing a relaxing and unique dining experience upon Bude’s historic canal.

I thought this was a great opportunity to be creative with the website design – I wanted to produce something that was unique and innovative. It felt like a no – brainer to make use of the the boat’s characteristics by incorporating wooden textures with hanging ropes to allow a user to distinguish between the sections on the page.

Furthermore, I decided to incorporate a steering wheel navigation bar.  As well as the steering wheel driving The Barge, I wanted to give the perception of it steering your path through the website.

If you haven’t already, take a look – especially on your phone!

North Cornwall Website Design for The Deck in Bude

The Deck approached me to design and develop a new website before the reopening of the restaurant for the New Year. They requested that the new website to cover more of the screen regardless of whether they are on the desktop, tablet or mobile whilst still utilising the wood textures they use on their menus.

Although they requested for the wood texture to be used, I felt this wouldn’t be enough to give contrast to the different layers. I decided to follow the rough effect of the wood by using a red brush that draws rough strokes to give attention to certain elements on the website. This got applied to the page titles and slideshow overlays.

Tile Inspired Website Design for Bude Brewery

As an independent brewery, standing out is very important which is why Bude Brewery approached me to produce a website that was a bit different to that of other breweries.

The main aim of the website was to let the content and quality of the brewery’s products speak for themselves. Combining a Windows 7 style interface with the companies’ unique label designs, enabled me to create an easy to understand interface from the outset and inspired this unique website design. Clever use of space and the simplistic implementation of a tiled navigation, allowed me to place emphasise on the stunning ales named and produced after iconic locations in and around Bude. Small touches of functionality were also added to give the tiles some life, such as the live feed from their Instagram page.

Whether your looking for custom graphics such as the assets you can see in the Bude Brewery designs or a unique website design,you can contact me for any of your Cornwall website design needs.
