We design web sites for companies and organisations across the UK. We provide a full range of associated services too, including
copywriting, search engine optimisation (SEO), social networking, data integration, domain registration, managed hosting and more.
For examples of the work we do, take a look at the Projects section of this web site or see the Featured Project below.
You might also find our QI blog, as the name suggests, quite interesting - it's a place for us to keep industry information we
find, or create.
You may have heard that our home town, Hartlepool, was recently a host port for the prestigious Tall Ships Races 2010 event. What you probably didn't hear is that we built the website for it, hosted it and ensured it stayed running throughout the event... despite over a million pages being viewed by hundreds of thousands of visitors.
It's been a two year project from start to finish, working with Hartlepool Borough Council to deliver the online presence for the finale to the Tall Ships Races 2010. Through good design and information architecture planning, the Tall Ships site was able to scale from the initial announcement page to a multi-layered and complex website. A lot of thought went into creating an easy work flow, with bespoke tools to encourage administrators to enhance the website with fresh content and regular updates.
Ultimately, this paid off with a content-rich website that is currently top of the results on Google UK searches for "Tall Ships", "Hartlepool Tall Ships" and "Hartlepool Tall Ships Races" (7th Aug 2010).
On the 6th of August we switched on a "micro" landing page, which was designed to present essential information to visitors. Up to the minute traffic and parking information, live messages, twitter status and weather. This page was specifically engineered to deliver essential information as quickly as possible during periods of high activity. We didn't want access speed to be irritating to visitors, even with this in place hundreds of Giga Bytes of bandwidth were consumed in the seven days covering the event without a single outage or issue.
We'd like to thank Hartlepool Borough Council for trusting us to do what we do well, and congratulate all involved in bringing
this spectacular and very special event to the town.
