Website revamp time for a new look

Website Revamp for SH Recruitment

When one of our clients came to us with the idea to have a website revamp, we were all ears. Their local marketing agency had come up with some social media content and wanted the website to match. Its always interesting to get another persons take on a business website.

A zoom call to get to get a feel for how the website revamp was going to go proved invaluable. We have set requirements for our recruitment websites set by the parent company. This allows all the tech in the background to keep working.

Website Revamp Design

Once we had the new user experience framework a development area was set. This allowed us to use our clients existing data for the development. The new look header and footer design was soon completed and set live on the existing site.

We could then set about the graphic heavy design layout functioning on all platforms. Firstly a desktop was produced in Elementor. We could quickly see we’d need to box clever when it came for screen formatting. To ensure the website revamp functioned on all screen sizes including ultrawide screens we had to be cleaver with dimensions. Going from the largest platform we then produced the mobile layout. With a few tweaks to how the image heavy pages worked we quickly had the initial UX we’d been sent running.  SH Recruitments website was soon ready the demo. Sam came back with a few working changes and functionality modifications and we were ready to go live. Keeping the page naming structure in place meant all the SEO in place kept inline with Google.

Web site update we can solve it

When one of our clients came to us with an urgent need to rebrand and get a new web site update designed we jumped on the task. Requiring just a name change Savi Recruitments old logo element could be recycled for the new brand. Our good friends as Savi Recruitment were required to go thru a name change earlier this year… wanting to keep it “the same but different” we could re use the colour scheme and logo element that had already served the company well. Becoming SolvIt Recruitment a funky domain name was chosen…  www.wecansolvit.com is now the new home for Scott and his team. A short and quirky name will allow the new web site be rememberable. Keeping the new web site clean and simple its an easy task to find the job you’re looking for then get hold of the Solvit team.

    Serious About FIFA website and brand development

    Serious About FIFA Website and Brand Development

    COG media and please to now be working with SAF (Serious About FIFA). SAF is an eSports Team and community for hardcore FIFA players and pros looking to have in depth discussions around gameplay, tactics, news, esports, and more.  Serious About FIFA is the worlds largest paid SIP Discord in the world for the past two years. Taking on their existing website which required a lot to improvement to say the least. Firstly we updated the existing site to perform and comply with Google and corrected the imagery to match Serious About FIFA’s demographic.

    Then we set about updating the website to our tried and tested platform. Moving away from the Visual Composer back end to the more flexibly Elementor. Lifting the existing wording and imagery the site was quickly taking shape. Updating all the existing product line photos with new clean imagery all compressed for page speed the new site was close to being ready to go live. Whilst we were working on the back end of Woo-commerce online eCommerce shop we realised that COG media could bring a lot more to the SAF brand as well as the site. Taking on our own back we have a couple of prototype new products produced sporting the new slogan we came up with “I PLAY THEREFORE I AM…” 

     

    Product Development

    Once we had the mocks ready we drop a quick message to SAF and they were round to go over the ideas we can come up with. Embracing the new branding with the addition of adding gamer tags to the certain products we started to expand the items in online shop. Chill E Sports Bottles, Snapback Caps and Beanies were the first of out new items to hit the store with the first orders coming in only 24hrs after they added. 

    Moving on from the initial products we set out adding the the SAF brand. To keep the costs down we turned to 3D renders and Photoshop to create and develop new ideas and expand on existing one item products.

    Read all about it…

    Bringing a new way of blogging to Serious About FIFA… Put it up and keep it up! Blog posts were being removed after they had served their purpose. Blogs are an important part of search engine optimisation, with information and details based round your organisation. A suite of imagery was created for new team members, eSports news and all things FIFA. Keep the brand across the entire site is key.

      To deliver more, your website needs to be attracting the right people in the right volume.

      Social media adverts, SEO and pay per click adverts can all be great ways of boosting the traffic going to your website, but they can also be an expensive way of amplifying the wrong audience.

      New Website Design for Norwich Design Company

      Time for a new website design

      Taking advantage of lockdown, not able to take my Grand Tour through Europe it was  new website design time for COG media. Firstly upgrading our WordPress Technology to include the same editor we’ve been using for our clients over the last year. Secondly to take advantage of all the new projects we’ve been working on. New services came online as well adding marketing to our products.

      Website Design First steps…

      Backup all existing content Drawing on the existing website we backed up all the blogs and pages ready to drop into the new framework. When we revamp existing WordPress websites doing this backup will keep the site structure. This is always good practise to keep Google and other search engines happy. Now we had the old site ready to start designing the new look.  

      Fresh New Website Look

      Go big or go home… Moving away from the boxed look of the old COG media website we wanted to use the full screen available where possible. Keeping the site responsive on all platforms templates where created for full width image based headers. Our latest development platform allows us to quickly add control on how the page will look on desktops, tablets and mobile devices. Website performance is very important part of page design. Posts like the one you’re reading now got a full width feature image which greets you when you get to the post.

        Covid19 information media

        Who could have guessed the impact  Covid19 was going to have when we started to hear about infections in China…  Within a few months the whole world was getting to terms with a new way of living and working.

        Very quickly a number of our clients were having designs for eshots, flyers and posters produced. One of our largest clients had a whole section added to their website offering advice,  guidance and links to their clients.  Daily we were adding to their Covid-19 blog, producing social media branded memes and positive messages for the whole group.

        Covid19 Prepare for Back to Business

        We’ve even designed a suite of “back to business” posts which hopefully will be put to good use very soon.

         

        COG media would like to take this opportunity to wish all our clients,  suppliers and friends all the best at this difficult time.
