I’ve just relaunched the website for Coleman School of Motoring, which needed a refresh both visually and to the code behind the scenes.
This was a good example of a website which was re-designed and put live in just 3 days. This project was made easier as the majority of content and structure from the old website was still worth using. We just had to decide the best way refresh the website design and to facilitate updating the code that lies beneath.
Google’s Chrome browser (version 68) releases today and it brings more prolific warnings to the user that a website is not secure if it’s not served over HTTPS.
Google recommends that every website is served securely over HTTPS and this latest change to their browser, which has a 60% share of the web browser market, means users will be presented with a more obvious warning than previously.
This project came about over a relaxed chat while I was taking part in one of the excellent tours Giggling Gecko Adventures run on the islands of Cape Verde.
A new website was needed which improved the experience for those visiting on mobile devices. While a standard requirement for modern websites, this had even higher priority as most people were looking to book tours via their mobile from their hotel on the island.
Giggling Gecko Adventures will soon expand to Sal Island, so a structure has been put in place so people can view and book tours for both islands, once they’re available. The website has RezGo integrated, a 3rd party tour booking application, so new tours can easily be added to the site and customers can book direct.
Last Level Games recently re-opened their retro video games shop in Norwich and needed a website quickly built to coincide with their attendance at the Norwich Gaming Festival.
Last Level Games had simple requirements that the website needed to promote their shop in the short term but it’s been designed so that they can easily start selling their stock online if the need arises in the future.
