OMdeSIGN agency designs and develops an innovative online platform for art lovers across the world

Exhi turned to London based web design agency OMdeSIGN to develop and launch an innovative online art-lovers platform

exhi-ipad

Exhi is a bold and innovative concept, created to offer a unique interactive portal to some of the world’s leading galleries, museums and exhibitions. The distinctive aspect of Exhi is that, with a few small exceptions, the reviews contained within the site will be written and uploaded by the users themselves. The aim of the site is to create a vibrant, accessible online community, created by and for art lovers and offering the chance for users to discover art recommended by people like them. Above all else the site needed to be accessible, fully responsive and visually appealing, showcasing the art in question and making it simple for users to interact across a variety of platforms and via all devices.

When creating a site centred upon the world of galleries, museums and art works, we realised that everything had to be built outward based upon the aesthetic of the site. We created that aesthetic by working from scratch and starting with the logo. It had to capture the ethos of the Exhi community, which is one of timeless elegance, taste and sophistication. As the demographic of art lovers is one which cuts across all age ranges the logo and subsequent branding needed to cut through to everyone who caught sight of it. To that end, it was designed to combine a clear and uncluttered sense of expertise with an obvious accessibility.

Once the logo was in place it was used as the foundation of the rest of the website. By using plenty of white space we created a site which provided the perfect backdrop for the art work and exhibitions under discussion. The other key demand was that the site be truly responsive, working just as effectively across the full range of mobile devices. Our team of experts ensured that this was the case, delivering an online presence which loads quickly and smoothly no matter how it is accessed, and which invites exploration and interaction.

The last point was the one which makes Exhi genuinely unique. It presents a view of the sometimes elitist art-world in which the ordinary gallery-goers are the stars of the show. The site is designed to encourage visitors to upload and access reviews opinions and recommendations. By making it easy to search and find by genre, artist or exhibition, Exhi will democratise the world of art and create a thriving and growing community of like-minded people. OmDesign made this possible by designing and building a site which could be used quickly and easily whilst on the move, and which has the capacity to grow and change as the Exhi community does.

OMdeSIGN builds a responsive website for the Lending Standards Board

London award winning web design agency, OMdeSIGN, are proud to announce the launch of a brand new website for leading financial body the Lending Standards Board

 The Lending Standards Board (LSB) is a body which seeks to promote, instil and maintain good practice in relation to financial products. They do this by monitoring and enforcing compliance with the Lending Code, a self-regulatory set of rules and regulations pertaining to financial institutions such as banks, credit card providers and debt collection agencies, all of whom have to meet stringent standards to be allowed to even apply. Sponsored by the British Bankers’ Association (BBA) and the UK Cards Association, they have the full weight of the industry behind them. In an age of mistrust and scepticism, much of it aimed at financial bodies, signing up to the code is an attempt by the bodies concerned to instil a sense of trust between themselves and their customers, and the LSB both oversees the code and assists with its implementation.

The LSB came to OMdeSIGN and asked us to design and build their new responsive websitelsb-website-responsive-min. Following a major review which had led to fundamental changes to the Code, they wanted to be able to work with and through an online presence which reflected the service they offered, the ethos they represented and the kind of trust they wanted to engender. They felt that their website now represented a key part of both their branding and their service delivery, and they wanted us to make sure it met these challenges.

We worked closely with them to create a website which hit every target. Above all else, the finished site would promote the Code and provide a first port of call for anyone seeking advice, reassurance or information. The branding would help to cement a reputation for trust and competence, while the intuitive interface would make the site user-friendly and accessible. This last, in particular, had to apply no matter what size or type of device the site was being accessed on. Finally, and looking to future-proof the site, we built a simple, easily utilised content management system, allowing the LSB to update the site to reflect changes in the financial landscape or the needs of visitors.

One of the key selling points of the LSB site is the sheer wealth of content it gathers through the portal we created. We engineered a design which made it easy for visitors to work through this material seeking the information they need. Taken together, the work we devoted to the site has positioned the LSB as the leading UK authority on lending practice, and has built a brand which is capable of reaching out to all parts of the audience.

OMdeSIGN designs and builds state of the art e-commerce website for designer florist Paul Thomas Flowers

London based web design agency, OMdeSIGN, are proud to announce the launch of a brand new e-commerce website for the innovative, high end designer florist Paul Thomas Flowers

To call Paul Thomas Flowers a designer florist is to understate matters somewhat. Since starting his own business in 1989, having trained with Kenneth Turner, Paul has been earning plaudits for the unique style, endless innovation and seemingly effortless beauty of the floral works of art which he creates. A passion for the flowers he works with allied to a fearlessly bold eye for aesthetic detail have earned Paul a reputation for supplying hotels, restaurants, shops and offices – as well as people simply seeking a beautiful treat – with designs described, time and again, as ‘luscious’, ‘explosive’ and ‘beautiful’.

Paul Thomas e-commerce website

Despite a client list which already includes Vivienne Westwood, the Ritz London and the Royal family, Paul came to OMdeSIGN to expand his online presence via a bespoke e-commerce website. The OMdeSIGN web agency team worked closely with Paul to design a site which captured and reflected the visual impact of the designs for which he is famous. Paul Thomas Flowers provided the stunning imagery and we built a website designed specifically to make the most of the carefully crafted beauty on display. This meant creating full width slideshows on the homepage and product pages and complimenting this with an overall look which matched Paul’s creations for style, elegance and the wow factor.

Not only did the website we built look the part but it got the job done. It was responsive to the full range of mobile devices and easy to navigate. A custom built content management system meant that the team at Paul Thomas could update the content of the site as quickly as they fashioned stunning new creations, whilst the administrative interface made it simple to perform tasks such as managing stock, taking delivery details and dealing with payments. Everything which you should be able to take for granted when using an e-commerce website, in other words, allied to a grasp of the business which meant that the site played a key role in projecting and emphasising the up-market yet accessible nature of Paul Thomas Flowers.

Since being launched, the site has received overwhelmingly positive feedback and helped to drive a rise in online sales.

Websites for Start-up Businesses and local companies

Websites for startups

Websites for startup businesses and SME s

If you’re starting, or are planning to start, your own business, then you’ll naturally be an expert in the service or product which you’re seeking to provide, and will be keenly impatient to get that message out to the wider world via your own website. The days when an online presence could be regarded as either a luxury option or a virtual adjunct to the wider business are long gone.

Put simply, if you don’t exist online – and by ‘exist’ we mean boast a website which is effective, accessible and easy to find – then, to all intents and purposes you hardly exist as a business.We’ve created a huge number of start-up websites over the years…

Is your website responsive? Why is responsive design important for your SME.

I’ve raised the topic of responsive web design on a few occasions previously, and it’s important enough to anyone with a presence on the Internet for it to be a subject that’s worth exploring again. In simple terms, Responsive Web Design (RWD) covers the aspects of a site which maximise accessibility, ease of use and the visitor experience. Via aspects of design such as lay-out and coding, RWD ensures that a site can be read, utilised and navigated no matter what the nature of the device through which it is being accessed. From a tablet to a smart phone via a laptop or our old friend the desk top computer, a site which utilises RWD will be at home no matter where it appears, with annoying aspects such as resizing, panning and scrolling kept to a bare minimum.

responsive mobile friendly website

As designers, however, it can easy to slip into a discussion of the technical parameters of RWD without capturing its essence for the lay person. Put simply, it creates a one size fits all website, capable of snapping into position and working perfectly with the device at hand (and ‘at hand’ is more and more often an accurate description of how people access sites), a concept which is obviously beneficial when put like that, but one which some people still fear is just the kind of thing that web designers mention when they want to bump the price up a little bit.

OMdeSIGN designs and builds state of the art website for brand new Silver by Aston Martin range

London based web design agency, OmDesign, have completed work on one of their most exciting and challenging briefs to date – the brand new e-commerce website for the stunning Silver by Aston Martin range.

Aston Martin is a brand that needs no introduction. For more than 100 years the name has been synonymous with style, elegance, craftsmanship and some of the most coveted and exclusive sports cars in the luxury car category. Now they have decided to branch into exclusive silver gifts and accessories and as such needed a sophisticated, state of the art e-commerce site to showcase and sell the range.

Aston Martin has a very distinct style and brand image, so the team at OmDesign needed to work very closely with the brand managers and get sign off at every stage to ensure that the overall look and feel of the website adhered to the strict brand guidelines. This meant that a lot of time went into the aesthetic design before the more technical side of things could be considered.

Using Djang as a platform the OmDesign team then began planning the build of the e-commerce site, which needed to provide an elegant, sophisticated browsing and shopping experience for the customer with intuitive suggestions as to what the customer might like to look at next. The team decided to divide the website up into four distinct sections: eating and drinking, travel and picnic, gifts and accessories, models and replicas and the exclusive Aston Martin Black, which was a bespoke design section. A simple drop down navigation system allows for easy browsing, and the site has been optimised for all screen sizes to ensure that visual quality is not lost on smart phones or tablets.

As well as product pages the site also features a handy store locator so that customers can find out where the nearest stockist of the range is, as well as a news area and press section.

So far, the website has proven to be a great success and a worth addition to the Aston Martin legacy, with online sales of the range already exceeding expectations.

OMdeSIGN is a London based web design company with experience designing and developing websites for a wide range of sectors.
