Art for all

Gallowgate Artists websiteGallowgate Artist Studios is an artist-led initiative providing studio space for artists in the centre of Glasgow.

It was set up more than 30 years ago and some of the original artists still have their studios there today.

We were approached by Roy Petrie, who we have worked with for many years, to provide any artists who wanted to participate with a shared website to display their work online.

The artists all have very different styles and work in different media so we kept the design of the website very understated so that the art spoke for itself and didn't clash with any of the artists' work.

So that every artist has the same impact, each artist was allocated a section of the front page as well as a uniform inside page to showcase up to five pieces of their work, an artist's statement, history and information of any forthcoming or current exhibitions.

Many of the artists were reliant on social media or word of mouth to promote their work but now they have a responsive website to give them a more permanent online presence.

There really something for everyone, why not grab a cuppa and have a browse through the eclectic range of artwork on offer.

Finding your Niche

niche websiteWe've been working with Niche - a specialist whisky and gift shop based in Newton Mearns on the south side of Glasgow - to develop a website to sell their products online.

Niche opened its doors in November 2014 with the aim of bringing different and unusual gifts and whiskies to the high street but this is the their first venture into selling online.

Niche is a family-run business that prides itself on its exemplary customer service and they are dedicated to extending this care to online shoppers as well as visitors to the physical shop so you will be in good hands.

The aim of the shop and the website is to offer a unique experience to visitors, offering something different. They work with a lot of new suppliers to ensure that Niche offers unusual gifts and whiskies that are not widely available elsewhere - ideal for that person we all know who is impossible to buy for!

The team have lots of new products to add to the website so remember to keep taking a look to see what's new.

Brightening up your Monday morning

Oli Olsen websiteIt's a pretty dreich Monday morning in Glasgow - that's wet and miserable to all our global readers!

Fortunately we have a very bright and cheerful website to cheer you up.

Oli Olsen sells lots of lovely things to brighten up your day - what about a cheery pineapple lamp to put a smile back on your face or encourage the weather with a Hello Sunshine candle? And if that doesn't work then there is always chocolate with an inspirational message - I think I will try "Be Awesome".

Oli Olsen was set up last year to bring trend-driven products from around the world.

They specialise in home and giftware including stationery, candles, lighting and accessories and are the official distributors of Studio Sweet & Sour, Me & Mats and Goodnight Lights in the UK & Ireland.

The website design is bright and inviting and fully responsive so you can shop from wherever you are - be that from the comfort of your sofa or on the commute into work.

There are lots of lovely things on the Oli Olsen website - what would you choose?

A new look

Parrucche websiteOne of the things we really love about our job is that we get to keep in touch with our clients and watch how their businesses expand and flourish – and not always in the ways they expect.

We first worked with Melanie many years ago when she had not long set up her wig boutique, Parrucche. Melanie had accompanied her mum to get a wig while she was going through chemotherapy and spotted a gap in the market. She wanted to improve the whole wig experience so that people could try on wigs in a relaxing and welcoming salon.

The business has expanded into many other areas since we first worked with Melanie – with people not only looking for wigs and hairpieces to cover hair loss but for weddings, tribute acts, theatrical productions and the transgender market.

The old website didn’t really reflect the diversity of Parrucche’s client base and was in need of a transformation!

The new website is fully responsive and much cleaner and more streamlined.

If you are looking for a transformation too then why not pop into the boutique or have a look at what's on offer on the Parrucche website.

Vice Versa

Vice Versa websiteWe have been working with WRASAC in Dundee to produce a new website for one of their projects, Vice Versa.

Vice Versa is a project which aims to promote the health, rights and dignity of women who are involved in commercial sexual exploitation.

They work together with the women to provide a range of specialist support services aimed at prevention, increasing the safety of women, supporting women to find routes out and long term support for those who have exited.

Many women find it difficult to find help and support and the website needed to be offer a clear signpost to relevant help and assistance.

The Vice Versa website provides a lot of information and this had to be organised in such a way that visitors could find relevant help quickly and easily.

Why not take a look?
