EQ Retreats | Website Design

BJ Creative was tasked by Alex Brounger to build a website for his holistic therapy business. He wasn't looking for an expensive solution in the short term but would like to know that he was not locked down from the start. Being based in Stamford with our client in Gloucestershire, the first contact for the web design was a conversation to understand what he wanted to achieve and the specifics of his request.

Alex had engaged another agency to come up with strong logo design and they also provided one of the marketing flyers that they had produced for him.

Web Design

As the layout was primarily provided by another agency, the website design was very quick and simple. We had to check numerous times that Alex was happy with the way that we had interpretted the marketing flyer and the strategic positioning of the logo.

Once the base design was done, Alex was very clear on what additonal features he wanted on the site, from testimonial rotators to a Wordpress blog. The essential part was ensuring that the blog felt an integral part of the site rather than a separate entity.

Alex was very keen to hear about the way that we would build the site to get the best possible start with Google in terms of rankings. He was open to our suggested hosting providers and did not feel that we led him down the wrong path.

The Build

We built the site using ASP.NET 4.0 and incorporated a contact page and used Master Pages throughout the site.

The site was initially hosted by BJ Creative on our server so that changes could be amended quickly at our end and this also then enabled us to managed the domains chosen for the website.
