After working with BMI Solutions for a couple of years maintaining their websites, we were delighted to then be offered the chance to re-design them all. BMI Solution\'s main website is one of the top sites nationally for document scanners and consumables from all recognised manufacturers. In addition BMI also have several \'satellite\' websites targeting specific manufacturers such as Kodak, Canon & Fujitsu. The requirement was for a re-design of all these sites but with common design elements throughout that still allowed for the individual brands to show through.
When Newsurf, a surf school and shop in Newgale, was taken over by new management, Bruce Sanderson contacted cornerpiece to re-design their website. A fresh, vibrant and modern design was required to emphasise the fun and exciting nature of surfing and other watersports. From the off the Newsurf team were keen to avoid the typical blue, blue, blue approach used on similarly focused websites. After a couple of draft designs we opted for a red / grey / black swatch with splashes of bright colour for different sections which all help the website to stand out from the crowd.
Bob Senior was already familiar with our work on the Nite Owl Europe website. When it came to revamping the existing Fat Buddha website, Bob got in touch and asked cornerpiece to come up with some draft designs. The current branding such as logo, floral designs and colour swatch used in both the existing website and the printed materials including menus, were to remain. Out task was to work with these requirements and to design a new website with a fresh, modern feel. The website needed to be informative, easy to navigate and inviting to visitors, and show off the beautiful interior design of the restaurant and bar.
Sue approached cornerpiece with a typical requirement for a brand new business. A full brand package was needed including logo design, business card and leaflet / flyer design and print, and of course website design. The first stage was to agree on the general look and feel that would portray both the warm and friendly atmosphere of a Northumbrian B&B along with the clean and modern decor and furnishings within. Sue\'s chosen name for the bread and breakfast \'The Acorns\', gave us the obvious direction to go for the graphical part of the logo design.
Nite Owl Europe Ltd had a variety of different requirements when they contacted cornerpiece including web design and development, social media and blog integration, e-commerce and also some print media.
I am extremely satisfied with the service, dedication and pure skill that Cornerpiece delivered. Every detail was covered and it all worked smoothly. I would highly rate the service, communication and most of all the final product.

Open Road Adventure Ltd required a very graphical website in a scrapbook style, to show off the campervans for hire, display availability and allow bookings to be made and paid for directly from the website.
All communication was done by email and phone with meeting in person kept to a minimum. We are really happy with the final result and think the look of the website will sell our services well. Very helpful and very well explained! Thanks.

Heritage Consolidation contacted cornerpiece about our web design, logo design and hosting services. As Heritage Consolidation were very happy with the resulting logo and website, they contacted cornerpiece to design and print their business cards.
Cornerpiece did everything from design and setting up the hosting to headed paper and business cards. The whole process was slick and easy. All we can add is that it was value for money and there was absolutely no hassle! Brilliant!!

Top Signs came to cornerpiece for a complete redesign of their existing website to one with a modern look and feel and with more information. They also required an e-commerce section for sale of their embroidered clothing.
Cornerpiece visited our office for an initial briefing and costing of the job and came up with some great ideas and advice on how to layout the web site. After some fine adjustment I was completely satisfied with the overall look we were trying to achieve.

Longhoughton Village Development Trust (LVDT) approached cornerpiece with a requirement to design two websites. A basic site for themselves and another for their latest project Westfield Park to include an online Booking System and Events Calendar.
Longhoughton Village Development Trust approached cornerpiece as a local company and because they were able to take the Trust's ideas and turn them into reality. We found cornerpiece to be very understanding and helpful throughout the entire process.

As an existing satisfied client, Kevin Anderson chose cornerpiece to design the website of his latest project KA Camper Hire. Once again Kevin needed a full branding package including logo design, web design with content management and business cards.
I had already used cornerpiece to set up the KA-Kitesurfing web site which turned out to be a great job well done. I had no hesitation in using them again for the KA Camper Hire web site and as I expected the site was set up to the same high standard.

Surfstore came to cornerpiece after experiencing some problems and inadequacies with their existing website and shopping cart software. After some discussion we recommended a move to Zen Cart and the incorporation of a blog.
Cornerpiece was recommended to Surfstore by one of our customers. The service and advice we received was first class. Here at Surfstore we found cornerpiece available, patient, well informed, effective and good value.

Due to expansion Grand Soleil Charter required an updated design and more control over the website content. Cornerpiece recommended a bespoke content management system that would allow GSC to create, edit and remove content at their own convenience.
Whilst forming GSC and looking for a web design company, we followed up on a recommendation of cornerpiece. They won the contract to build our first website and we haven\'t looked back since. We found cornerpiece to be fast, efficient and affordable.
