Websites

Responsive. Interactive. Flexible.
Agile and intelligent websites…

Websites are evolving at speed. Customers are engaging more, researching more and ultimately expecting far more than ever before and we are excited by all of the opportunities this presents. From beautiful scrolling websites which inform and engage, to self-managed e-commerce websites which tempt a customer to ‘buy now’, we’ll ensure your website reflects extreme professionalism and delivers results.

Every business is unique and every website should reflect a brand’s personality. This is precisely what Lichfield based agency, Raphael Design, will deliver.

Your website will be agile, so your customers will be able to access it on tablet, mobile and desktop computer. You’ll also have the opportunity to refresh content to boost search engine optimisation and analyse the performance of your pages.

Starter websites

Perfect for start-up companies, quick-release product launches, or for those wanting a more stream-lined option. Our starter websites not only punch above their weight compared to alternative budget solutions but are incredibly flexible too; we can easily develop these into full brochure or ecommerce sites as your company grows.

True Self

True Self specialise in hypnotherapy treatments targeting a wide range of physical and psychological problems. The primary objective of the brief was to make a website that really stands out from other hypnotherapeutic practices, which we’ve achieved through a careful combination of unique photography, offbeat colour palettes and complementary typography. Standardised functionality have been individualised through complex layering and custom CSS. 

Belwell Construction & Facilities

Construction and facilities specialists Belwell Construction & Facilities wanted a visually intriguing single page scrolling website to improve content engagement. Clear communication of services is therefore the focus of this website design. This was achieved by creating animated elements in the presentation of the company’s services as well as using gallery grids to showcase them in an exciting way.

New Business Department

New Business Department is a consultancy offering companies the ability to outsource their business development. Their single page scrolling website was created using an eye-catching updated brand identity with colour schemes to match. This is a simple yet effective website. It has an attention demanding layout that showcases the company’s services and information, whilst being space efficient and succinct.

Jess Semple

Jess Semple is a graduate fashion designer, requiring a website that acts not only as a portfolio for displaying her unique talents, but also as an informative CV. A minimal approach to layout, typography and colour really let her work shine! This website is bold, contemporary and a pleasure to navigate, with smooth lightbox transitions and other subtle visual effects. 

MTEK Developments

MTEK Developments specialise in the design and manufacture of high-quality Rapid Injection Mould Tools, and required a striking and informative website. We’ve used customised structures and layering to create a balanced harmony between text, imagery and colours. The end result is clean, bold and memorable.

Brochure websites

Need a comprehensive platform to market your business? A website that’s going to stand the test of time and instil trust and confidence in your customers? Look no further! Our multi-page website solutions are incredibly versatile and can work wonders for any business model. Our brochure websites mean business!

Greywood Multi-Schools Trust

This comprehensive multi schools trust website was created from a developed and existing brand in order to display important information and enhance corporate identity. It was built using contemporary design principles with use of dynamic animations in order to make it visually engaging. A number of information pages make up the website such as a member trustee page, statistic report page as well as a policy download page.

Utopia Salon

Utopia salon wanted a medium sized brochure website with a contemporary look to represent their brand. The site needed to display the salon’s full menu of services using detailed price lists. The existing brand and colour schemes were developed to ensure the website had a confident and strong visual impact, combined with the use of creative high-quality salon photography.

Silicair

Silicair are one of Europe’s leading designers and manufacturers of industrial drying solutions. They have an international client base and their new website forms the cornerstone of their current marketing strategy, which has already attracted new prospective customers.

Space saving modules and functionality have been employed to present the data-heavy content in a clean and efficient manner, improving user experience both on desktop and mobile devices.

New branding, also created by Raphael Design, has been implemented throughout the site. A range of product data sheets, incorporating this new corporate look, has been created as part of the project. These are available on the website from a downloadable PDF library.

Stock imagery has been sourced for use on the website, which is sympathetic to the industries that are Silicair’s target markets. These added visual interest to the site.

Laura Louise Hair Artist

Laura Louise is a hair artist specializing in hair styling for weddings, proms, hen parties and all special occasions.

The design of the website was part of a branding project that Raphael Design completed for the client. Also included was the creation of a new logo plus design and production of marketing collateral including leaflets, prices lists and business cards.

The website needed a strong visual impact in order to convey the quality of Laura Louise’s work. The company’s portfolio of hair design is a key feature of the site. This is shown in an effective and creative manner using full width galleries. The scrolling testimonial feature adds a dynamic element to the website. A live face book feed is incorporated to ensure the company’s social media activity works seamlessly with the website. Multiple price tables have been used which will be easy to update going forward.

Support Lichfield

Support Lichfield was created at the onset of lockdown to help local businesses stay connected, offering free participation and the opportunity to provide up-to-date business information. We’ve used clever categorisation tools, making it super easy for users to find and read up on desired business types. The WordPress content management system makes updating the website quick and intuitive, meaning new businesses can be listed within minutes. 

Pro websites

Robust, dynamic and able to accommodate any brief! Our pro websites cover ecommerce solutions, client portals, multi-language sites, and everything in between. We have an extensive library of pre-licensed professional plugins and a team of technical wizards meaning we can build non-standard websites at a reasonable cost.

Bradshaw’s Natural Selection

Premium dog food company Bradshaw’s Natural Selection required a full ecommerce website with a twist… Not only can customers easily purchase their desired dog food, but on every purchase Bradshaw’s will ship a free bag of dog food to a selected charity. Not only does this site boast fresh graphics and a fun user experience, but we’ve also employed our technical know-how to accomplish many non-standard functionalities, making sure that every page has a positive incentive not only to place an order, but to help dogs in need as well.

White Crow Studios

White Crow Studios are a leading CGI company. The nature of their work dictates a 3D imagery and animation heavy website. The re-designed site had to effectively display their portfolio of work in a dynamic style. Mobile compatibility was also a key requirement.

With this goal in mind, the CGI images and animations are shown on full width gallery pages that are fully responsive. The panoramic CGIs have been displayed using an industry specific plug-in that enables the viewer to enjoy the complete 360 degree experience across all devices.

Bliss of London

Bliss of London is a well-established, leather crafting company. It specialises in the making of bespoke saddles, bridles and other leather accessories for horses, suitable for riders of all abilities.

They required a complex and comprehensive website with ecommerce functionality. The site needed to contain a large amount of content but also had to be designed in a way to reflect the quality of the Bliss brand.  Carefull structuring was required to ensure customers could easily navigate the site, in order to learn about and purchase products. Clients are able to log in to their account to gain a personalised experience.

Other key features of the site include complex shipping rules and a dealer map. The latest addition to the site is the ‘Build Your Own Bridle’ feature which allows customers to personalise each component of their custom-made bridle, making each piece more personal to both horse and rider.

ITC Industrial Tooling Corporation

ITC are a specialist-tooling supplier with an extensive product range. Their site has been redesigned to incorporate the company’s recent re-branding within a fully responsive layout.

A key requirement was for the site to work in conjunction with company’s off line marketing activity plus provide a useful on-line resource to clients about products and technical data. In order to meet both the aesthetic and functional requirements, a large element of bespoke CSS has been employed/implemented. It is a large site with multiple pages.

The site provides an accessible online library of all the company’s pdf documentation. This includes a broad range of product catalogues, brochures and technical information. An interactive index feature enables the viewer to easily access a specific page within the on-line library. Additional technical support is provided by the use of online chat facility.

Humpty Dumpty Day Nurseries & Pre-Schools

Leading nursery and pre-school specialist Humpty Dumpty required a complex, comprehensive website for its large amount of content. With separate pages needed for different nurseries and play schools as well as a private parent portal, it is essential that the website is user friendly. The website is designed to give clear information whilst showing its brand values and services using strong photography and typography.

Rave reviews!

Our lovely clients have been kind enough to leave us feedback on their websites. Hopefully you’ll enjoy reading them as much as we enjoyed receiving them!
