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.
The website includes several targeted pages highlighting the services that Newsurf offer and a gallery of clickable thumbnails to view pop-up lightboxes of the larger images. In addition, the original website already had a very popular 'Surf Report' page which had been updated every day with the latest surf conditions. The new team wished to continue with the daily reports so we updated the layout of this information to fit better with the new design and also added some bespoke functionality to our CMS (Content Management System) to allow for easy updating and the upload of a daily photograph.
Newsurf also opted for our Social Media Package which includes the setup of a facebook fan page, a twitter account and a youtube channel, all of which were styled to compliment the website. Navigation from the Newsurf website to each of these social media websites was included and a facebook 'Like' button added to each page to make it even easier for visitors to share Newsurf with their friends, family and contacts.
My experience with Cornerpiece Ltd has been a pleasure. They have dealt with our website plus social media image within the budget and timelines that we agreed during our initial meetings. I highly recommend their “overall approach” which we adopted to include the media package creating a uniform look and feel enhancing our brand and logo.
Cornerpiece's expertise, professional approach, friendly advice and patience have helped achieve our short term goals and we have established a relationship where we seek advice from Cornerpiece as we continue to grow our business.
