Hotel-Standards

Hotel-Standards is the leading application used by hotel chains to manage and disseminate building and design standards for their brands.

The application uses modern web technologies to deliver a highly intuitive and usable experience for architects, engineers, designers and developers to ensure that hotels are built to the correct standards.

We designed, programmed and project managed this application. We're responsible for the Agile development of the application, negotiating new features with clients and then ensuring they are developed on time, in budget and work the way that best complements the core application.

Hotel-Standards was created in PHP and MySQL using HTML5, CSS3 and jQuery.

The Cyclists' Alliance

When professional cyclists Iris Slappendel, Garcie Elvin and Carmen Small decided to start a union for women professional cyclists they reached out to a range of different experts. We worked closely with the team and were responsible for creating with the name of the union: The Cyclists' Alliance. We developed the corporate identity including a manual on how to best promote the union through its identity.

We created a website to inform people of the union and allow them to join, and developed and social media strategy to help attract people to the new union and the work it is doing.

We created a range of logos for different uses, social media images, and a website with a CMS. We help The Cyclists' Alliance keep their content up-to-date and looking good.

The Council for Aluminium in Building

CAB has been our client for a very long time. So we are intimately aware of their particular needs as a trade body. They have a diverse range of members who each have their own needs. And their information is often very technical and aimed at a particularly knowledgable audience. Now, in it's latest iteration the CAB website is designed to appeal to a wider audience and to be a modern browsing experience working as well on a mobile phone as a desktop.

We built the site with a familiar CMS to allow the various CAB members to take control of their own information. And we wrote custom plugins to ensure the site delivered some of the very specific functionality CAB required.

The CAB website was created using Bootstrap on top of a bespoke Wordpress theme with additional functionality through jQuery.
