We’ve just completed work on this website for the Venkatraman Memorial Trust – a small charity supporting the education of children in the fishing village of Kovalam near Chennai in the south of India. It looks like we did OK, if client Lindsay Swan’s comments are anything to go by:

‘We are delighted with our new website. We wanted a design that captured the vibrant colours and spirit of Kovalam and provided an attractive background for our growing photo library. The new site does this beautifully and it is also completely painless to maintain.
Thank you Wingfinger for a fantastic job.’

This site is a good example of our basic content-managed website with prices starting from just £518 +VAT. If you’d like us to put one together for you, give us a call on 0113 2450469.

January has seen the relaunch of the Carplus website. Wingfinger came on board to help carplus restructure content and to bring the site across to a WordPress-powered CMS. We’ve found WordPress to be a versatile and accessible content management tool, and are once again pleased with the results!

The site was redeveloped to complement (and in the future, incorporate) an existing site, Carclubs UK, designed by Provokateur design agency. Although the new Carplus site was far more content-driven, and needed several levels of navigation, we used Provokateur’s lovely, crisp imagery to preserve the nice light feel of its sister site.

We wanted a design that would stand up to regular content change and additions, and created a WordPress theme that would give our client maximum flexibility for content input, without the worries of corrupting the actual page layout (a classic CMS issue!). Along with creating standard pages of text and image content, the client is able to create forms and databases for event bookings, and create, mail out and display XML newsletters.

We’ve enjoyed a great working relationship with Carplus throughout the redevelopment, and have put together an on-going support package to ensure that the site continues to blossom, and remains adaptable for their needs.

Carplus is a national charity promoting responsible car use. Their website contains a wide range of information and resources on sustainable transport information, setting up car share clubs, and the environmental, financial and social impact of car dependency.

Well we’ve finally had time to sit down and join the masses with our very own blog, Wingfingerponderings. We hope this will be a happy place, where we can trumpet about new projects, share our passions and concerns (including some that are clients care about, too) and ponder on The World and Everything In It.

This will be a spot for our Wingfinger spirit to take off – hopefully with more success than this pigeon, who tried something similar outside our office a few months back (we think he walked it off and lived to fly another day, though).
