yoga retreat website design

Azulfit – Yoga & Pilates Retreats

When we met:

Azulfit has an ever-evolving business with yoga retreat centres in Spain and the US as well as running retreats in locations around the world. They had outgrown their current site and had recently rebranded so were looking to do a complete redesign with someone who understands their business.

What I did:  

I created a bespoke website that captured the feel of their business – friendly, accessible and feel-good – with lots of bespoke customisations that would allow them to add new retreats with ease and to show off their incredible offering. The site is fully responsive and includes online booking and a shop.

Chloe Hart Bodyworks website design

Chloe Hart Bodyworks

When we met:

Chloe had an existing blog on blogger but wanted to make the leap to a full website with the potential for it to change and grow with the business.  She wanted a website that was accessible and clean, but still had warmth and personality.

What I did:

I worked closely with Chloe on developing the look and feel of her business, making sure it was striking the right balance between professional and personality. The process included branding, logo design, responsive website design and build and some basic training to make sure she will be able to continue to update the website herself.

Tranquility Massage and Beauty Website Design

Tranquility Massage & Beauty

When we met:

Paula, the owner of Tranquility, had just had a website designed by another company but wasn’t really happy with the result or the service. She was looking for a more personal approach and a website that would really capture the look and feel of the business as well as being responsive and ranking well in google.

What I did:

A complete redesign that captured the warmth and caring nature of the business as well as the beautiful location, on the island of Fuerteventura. The process included branding, logo design and the responsive website design and build. Paula loves the website and the feedback she gets from clients and is happy to be on page one of google.

SP Media Relations

When we met:

SP Media Relations is a specialist PR consultancy for luxury hospitality businesses and has been in business for many years. The existing website was outdated and in need of modernising to appeal to the luxury hospitality businesses that it serves.

What I did:

I created a full width website with striking banner images, overlaid with client testimonials to really draw attention to the high levels of client satisfaction. I brought the typography and use of colours more in line with the luxury market whilst balancing it with simplicity and ease of use, letting the client testimonials, press coverage and client logos speak for themselves.

chef website design

Jo Dombernowksy – Chef

When we met:

Jo is a successful retreat chef and cookbook author who wanted to turn her food blog into a full website that could highlight and promote her events, courses, retreats and cookbooks.

What I did:

Using Jo’s cookbook as inspiration, I created a website that was modern and clean, fully responsive and integrated with a shop to allow her to sell her cookbooks online. I also provided basic training to allow her to keep her website updated.

Personal project – aka labour of love

Erm is this your own site? 

Yep. This is what I get up to at playtime. Playing with words and design is a personal passion too. Incidentally this could be worth a look if you’re interested in yoga or excessively long bike trips.

Website design FAQs

Will my website work on mobile devices?

Yes, absolutely. This is so important. When designing the website I pay equal attention to how your website will look and function on everything from full size screens to ipads and iphones. The design will be ‘responsive’ which means it will change depending on what device someone is viewing it on. This makes for a website that is easy to use.

What platform do you use?

All my sites are built on WordPress. WordPress powers over 25% of the web, from fledgling bloggers to big businesses like the New York Times, Ebay and Samsung. It’s as simple or as powerful as you need it to be and the support and community around it is unrivalled. The best thing is that the interface is really easy to use, so you’ll be able to add blogs and update the content yourself once the design is finished.

Do you use a theme / how much of the website is custom made?

I work with Thesis 2 (valued at $89, included in the price), a professional theme, which is constantly being upgraded and improved to make sure it stays at the front of web development and SEO trends. I wouldn’t use a free theme because they don’t have the same level of support or development and I want your website to stay happy and healthy as the web continues to progress.

The other big draw of this theme is that it is a blank canvas design-wise, so we can create something completely unique for your business.

How much input can I have with the design?

You can have as much input as you want. If you have lots of ideas about colours and fonts and features then that’s great and I’m happy to bring your ideas to life. If on the other hand, you don’t really know where to start, don’t worry, that’s what I’m here for.

What happens once the website is complete?

Rather than tying you into a contract I really want you to have the control over your website and to feel confident in updating it yourself. I’ll provide some basic training to make sure you can add blog posts and make basic updates. If you need ongoing support, I can provide that too.

Sounds great, how much does it cost?

The price depends on exactly what you need – the size of the website, the functionality you need, whether you have an existing site and/or brand. I don’t believe in a one size fits all approach to website design so the best thing to do is to drop me an email and we can take it from there.
