Bespoke Responsive Hotel WordPress Theme

Working again with designer extraordinaire, Tommy Rockett, we were asked to realise the new design for the Lodge at Winchelsea thelodgeatwinchelsea.co.uk

The client was keen to have lots of information on a single page without the user having to reload the page so we made use of Foundation’s tabbed content. This works well on mobile devices as well so was a perfect responsive solution.

We also made use of WordPress’ inbuilt features to allow the client to easily manage the menu system, promo bar, slideshows, tabbed content and footer area.

Responsive Holiday Website

“h.o.f.n.a.r. means court jester in Dutch” … so says Daniel Janes, the man behind this holiday company with a difference. Daniel organises actioned packed group holidays for 20-30 somethings; be it snowboarding, surfing, mountain biking, power boating or another thrill seeking activity, you can be sure Daniel has been there, done it!

Daniel asked us to re-design his existing www.hofnar.com site so that it would be more mobile friendly so we introduced him to the concept of responsive websites and he was sold.

As the existing design (by Rye designer Tommy Rocket) was still current, the site just needed redeveloping to make use of Zurb’s responsive framework, Foundation.

Now Daniel is happy that the content he publishes will be displayed to the best ability on all modern devices without him have to worry too much about it!

Bilingual WordPress Website

Here’s another website we’ve developed with Tommy from Rockett Creative.

Amaré Private Estates required their new website to easily handle more than one language but without using auto translators which often produce gibberish (just try translating something into a foreign language and back again, what comes back is often hilarious!).

This bespoke theme has a welcome page which allows the user to choose their language and having done so the site then displays the relevant language’s custom menu accordingly.

Page templates are used to allow the administator to choose language and slideshow options. The slideshow template makes use of our Easy Slider plugin and displays all images that have been uploaded to the page.

Pages also have the ability to easily choose a Vimeo video through custom fields. If no video is selected then the featured image is displayed instead.

This theme also makes use of WordPress’ new custom header and background theme options.

We were very happy with the end result; quite a beautiful design from Tommy and all tied together with a simple to use WordPress theme.

Energy and Enterprise Initiative

We’ve been very busy the last couple of weeks working with Tommy from Rockett Creative on a new web site for the Energy and Enterprise Initiative based at the Center for Climate Change Communication (4C) in the Department of Communication, College of Humanities and Social Sciences at George Mason University, in Fairfax, Virginia.

Tommy asked us to realise his design as a WordPress theme so that his clients in the USA could easily update all aspects of the site including embedded Vimeo videos, text sliders, news and future events.

The web site went live today and we were described as the “Clutch Player” by the folks across the pond!

Another happy chain of clients!
