Emma contacted us after seeing examples of our website design online. She liked our style of work and we liked her product and we hit it off from our first phone call. This is the second incarnation of Emma’s Fabric Studio’s website after the first one we did quickly outgrew it’s cababilities with Emma’s rapid growth of products and respective sales. This new design was built on the Magento system and is much better equipped and handling thousands of items for sale. We worked alongside illustrator Julene Harrison to design the header and footer cut-outs. These then formed Emma’s new logo and other branding elements. Emma and us here at Carta will continue to work together to update the graphical side of the website on a regular basis to keep it fresh.

Poppy again invited Carta to work with her to produce new retail and trade website designs for the business. The website is based on a new platform called Magento. This meant all the technical side was handled by them whilst we undertook the design. We agreed that we didn’t want a radical change in ‘feel’ as the brand and design of the original website had been received so well. A focus on more social media presence and interaction with the viewer was key so we broke the layout into clear sections of information, selling, social and user integration.

Kids Love Nature / Website Design

Lids Love Nature Nursery Website Design

Along with the logo designs, leaflet and other literature, Carta also undertook the design of the Kids Love Nature website. We kept the same fun and nature inspired look for brand consistency as in the other material. The design needed to be colourful, clear and easy to navigate around. The footer element features a field, trees and clouds which gives a feel of space and the outdoors which is what the Nature Nursery model is based on. The website design was provided as a layered Photoshop file for easy implementation by the web developer who built the final website.

Sapience HR website design

This is a complete redesign and build of Sapience’s website. Carta has worked with Sapience since it was established in 2005 and produced their first website. The time came for a new look and new functionality for the website to meet with the expansion of the business. Continuing with the same strong branding and colours we set about making the site easier to read and navigate. We integrated the cartoon imagery that is used in Sapience’s advertising, to give a visual to each area of expertise that they provide to clients. WordPress has been used to allow an integrated blog and CMS for easy online updating.

Amalwhidden Farm / Website Design

Amalwhidden Farm Coarse Fishery website

Amalwhidden Farm Coarse Fishery has recently been reopened after extensive landscaping and restocking of new fish. The owners, Neil and Julia Hodder, wanted to promote the business via traditional printed material as well as online. We designed a DL sized folded leaflet to be used in advertising racks in local B&Bs, Hotels and Tourist information stands. We then moved on to the website. The requirements were to make it family friendly and welcoming. I also illustrated a map of the ponds and lake to show the features and fishing peg positions. The website is WordPress built so that it can be quickly and easily updated by the Julia and Neil from any PC with internet connection.

Beyond the Sea / Website design

Wednesday, December 8th, 2010

New website update for Beyond the Sea Gallery in Padstow. Taking elements from the previous design in terms of layout and branding, I completely reworked the website from the ground up. It now has a much more user-friendly e-commerce shop for both the viewing customer and client. The site will be evolving with new categories over the next few months to establish a varied stock of art and gifts.

The Padstow Mussel Co. website design

An e-commerce website for the already successful shop based in Padstow, Cornwall. Susie Ray, owner, photographer and designer behind TPMC, came to Carta via a client referral (thanks Sarah at MYPA!). After meeting Susie to discuss the project and to get a good insight into her products, I drafted up a concept that pretty much hit the mark first time. The site is fully updatable by TPMC and orders are processed with PayPal.

Christian O’Reilly / Website design

Christian O'Reilly website design

Christian and Alice O’Reilly first spoke to me after seeing work that I had produced for Abbott & Ellwood and Poppy Treffry. They were needing to update their existing website with a version that could be easily updated by themselves. The ability to add and update both the gallery and blog section is made very easy with the WordPress CMS and a couple of neat plug-ins. The main web design priority was to show Christian’s furniture as big and cleanly as possible. I kept the layout very understated which reflects the high-end bespoke work. After all, it’s the furniture that viewers want to see, not an over designed flashy website.
