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.
Carta has been working will Philip Baker’s for some time now on their existing photography and label / packaging designs. Philip commissioned Carta to update their existing website and bring it up to the new branding style that hew had worked on previously. The site needed to to be simple, clean and showcase their products. www.philipbaker.org.uk
Waterborne is one of our first customers from back in 2005. We have recently redesigned and updated their website to make for a better user experience for the viewer. The site mow features online booking and payments. WordPress was used for the CMS.
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 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.

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.

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 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.

ARLA Design is run by an old school friend of mine, Sam Flynn. It was time for ARLA’s website to have a revamp and Sam asked if I could help. Simplicty was the order of the day along with a CMS for easy of updating of future content. WordPress was used for the CMS platform which is a breeze for the client to use. Keeping the layout and navigation clean and simple allowed the photography to stand of the page doing it’s job of selling ARLA’s work. I used a clever little gallery code for the galleries of work that can be easily updated by ARLA.
Penzance based guidebook designers and publishers, Friendly Guides, were looking for their first website to promote and sell their Guidebooks. The style was inspired by the guides themselves. Simple, easy to read and lovely maps, illustrations and photography made me spoilt for choice for visuals. Each Guidebook has it’s own page to give an insight into each guide and the ability to view the whole guidebook via a ‘See Inside’ viewer. The guidebooks can be purchased through the site or via Amazon. PDF versions can also be bought and downloaded. This process is fully automated so no time is needed in fulfillment by the client. As the site needed to appeal to bookshops a trade order page was included. I also produced the logo identity, MailChimp e-pricelist and a printed pricelist.
