The Cleaning Company | Website & Logo Design
BJ Creative was tasked by Robbie O'Driscoll to build a website for a new business venture based on a local cleaning service. The business was a new venture and needed to be as impactful as possible to ensure its financial success.
Robbie was very focused on he logo in the first instance and knew exactly what key triggers he was looking for in the final design. We worked through iterations to get to the logo signoff correct before we began the website build.
The logo shape was reached quite quickly but the colour schema took longer as the shades that we were using needed to have the correct image. The plan immediately was that the logo would be placed on vans so that clear branding was obvious once the business got going.
We began the project by working up some ideas for Robbie to review on the logo front. The final shape for the logo was reached quite quickly from the initial designs that I passed across.
Robbie knew exactly what he wanted and was very helpful with the feedback to ensure that we reached the correct result.
The logo went backwards and forwards through several amends until all parties were happy. The final logo was exported in multiple formats to enable the usage on any medium at any size.
We worked up some static images for Robbie using Fireworks so that we could quickly alter any of the graphics that he was not happy with or wanted relocated to somewhere else. We played with many colours and combinations to get the correct balance for the website and once Robbie was happy, we began the build process.
New content was being added as we built the site, but due to the way that it was coded, these were easily incorporated and whole new sections were added upon suggestions from BJ Creative.
The presence of this new firm was unknown in Stamford, so a full push needed to be made to raise awareness. We worked with Robbie to ensure that The Cleaning Company was registered on all of the local business directories, so that these type of services can be easily found.
We worked on differing intro paragraphs on a per directory basis so that we could make full benefit of the space that each site had. Some offered additonal photo space, whilst some allow you to enter your own buzz-words for maximum effect.
We built the site using Classic ASP and incorporated a contact page and used server side includes 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.
