Their objective was to acquire better leads through their website by clearly displaying all their services and expertise. They also wanted the convenience to be able to self-publish new content and include some new online tools like company car tax calculators.
Our design process started with careful research into the type of clients JL&C wanted to acquire, along with the services these clients were looking for an in-depth analysis of accountancy firms large and small within 15 miles of the JL&Co office. We sketched a way to make the services offering more visually interesting and put together a simple and easy to navigate site map incorporating a place for online tools and new updates. Using WordPress, we were able to provide a quick, simple CMS so that JL&Co had full control over their pages and SEO.
We were tasked with creating a new event website design for their sister brands Simply Smile and Smile Expo which needed to handle regularly updated content across all media and host a transactional booking engine. The site also needed to be able to host live webinars of events for those who couldn’t attend in person.
To achieve all these requirements, we knew the site would need to be fast and responsive, so we set about creating a design that would work with WordPress as the CMS but with a custom coded theme to allow the vast amounts of information and large image files to work quickly without slowing down the website when it was launched.
All targets were surpassed, with these results just from the first event:
RiVR offer immersive training for all industries. They scan any real-world environment and use their custom RiVR VR Simulation Engine and our VRM (Virtual Reality Monitor) to enable cutting edge training anywhere in the world. RiVR approached us to build a website that would showcase video content in a simple and interesting way to potential clients.
We built a custom Wordpress theme from scratch for RiVR, we could then eliminate the bloat inherent in many "off the peg" themes. We could then heavily customise the theme to make it easily editable by all the RiVR staff, we feel the solution was intuitive enough for a brief 20min passover team chat to be sufficient for the RiVR team to understand exactly what could be changed and where.

Hake initially wrote a strategy, including max spend etc and have followed through with that strategy on time in full. The product line in question has subsequently had more sales in the first half of this year than the whole of the previous year. I can whole heartedly recommend this company."
