We have just launched the new Water and Stone Bathrooms website -> www.waterandstonebathrooms.co.uk
Water and Stone offer a wide range of high quality bathroom, bedroom and interior products and offer full bespoke design and installation services winning numerous awards.
They have an amazing showroom which is located just outside of Nailsworth in Gloucestershire. The site utilises full background expanding images which gives the site a nice feel with the quality imagery from the products and showroom. The site has a full featured back-end admin system for managing products and content.
We have just launched a small site for a Gloucestershire based Wellness Clinic – http://www.walking-well.co.uk
The clinic provides all sorts of information relating to general well being and matters relating to the feet and skin in particular. The site also offers a range of tried and tested foot and skin related products.
New site just launched for The Wine Journal – www.thewinejournal.co.uk
Great product for wine enthusiasts but also some really cool wine related products in the pipeline (check the coming soon page).
The Mother Hubbard website has recently been updated.
The shop is based in Nailsworth, Gloucestershire. Mother Hubbard not only supplies Old Original Pine pieces but has an extensive range of new and reproduction furniture in a wide range of styles all of which still retain the traditional Farmhouse or Period style, along with a large range of lighting, mirrors and unusual interior decorative items.
Interesting little page on Google which shows the evolution of the logo used on the home page over the years from 1998 to current.
There really is clear improvement from early on to the current designs, I guess this reflects the success of the business to a certain extent
We have recently revamped the existing UD+M website (http://www.udm.org.uk). A nice clean site with a neat jQuery plugin we created to add a colour fading effect to the navigaiton when hovered.
Also existing flash effects for text fade in and image transitions were replaced with jQuery to work on all platforms (and allow for easy maintenance).
The navigation effect plugin will be released as open source shortly.
Small but neat and clean site just gone live -> http://www.encore-cirencester.co.uk/
Encore Cirencester Website
We installed the Facebook Comments for WordPress plugin – a very nice addition but found that it slowed the blog down terribly.
The solution I found was to uncheck the ‘Combine WordPress and Facebook comment counts’ option.
Speed back to normal
We finally have our new website up and live http://www.tpddesign.co.uk/
Its taken a while but we finally re-worked our website from scratch.
Just phase 1 but pleased so far, quite a few tweaks and updates to make over the coming months such as expanded details on projects along with more images, interactive forms, a client area and other design improvements.
It has been so difficult to actually find time to work on our own site, rather than all the ones we earn our living developing, I guess that’s always the case .
All the jQuery effects are hand written e.g. the slider on the menu, the portfolio slider etc by us, no drop in plugins, although we still need to go through and pull them into external minified JS files.
Anyway, a good way to finish the week out.
I wondered where my intellisense had gone for jQuery with MVC3 and Razor. Anyway there is a fix for it:
Add the following to your view (with the jQuery vsdoc version you have:
The if-statement prevents the script tag from being rendered into the html source code.
Grab jQuery 1.5.0 vsdoc from here -> http://damianedwards.com/files/jquery/jquery-1.5-vsdoc.js
