Robin Mills - Photographs of Dorset

This afternoon we have launched an updated version of Robin Mills's fantastic photography website. It profiles him as a photographer and farmer, living and working in the Dorset countryside, and features his extraordinary black and white photographs.

We created Robin's original website almost 4 years ago now, when screens were smaller and most people were still on dial-up internet connections (remember them?). The brief for this first site, was "small but perfectly formed" with a set of sensible sized galleries that only took a few moments to load even over a ropey internet connection.

This year we have updated Robin's site, increasing it's size and the size or his photographs, and also widening its scope to take in his recent "FarmLife" and "Marshwood Vale Magazine" portfolios.

In the Eye of the Beholder

Seeing Robin's photographs always make me stop and pause to appreciate them. It's never possible to just glance at the images - they demand your attention, draw you in, imbuing the moment with the atmosphere of the place and story. This is especially true of his landscapes and seascapes which almost make you hold your breath as you appreciate the extraordinary compositions, and quiet drama of the scenes he has photographed.

Robin's mastery of the monochomatic image is also evident in the portraiture on his site. Again the images hold you in their gaze, lead you to wonder about the stories behind the faces and places depicted. If you've five minutes to spare, do pay the site a visit.


New Website For Osmington Village Hall

We’re pleased to announce that we have just launched a NEW website for Osmington Village Hall. Osmington Village Hall came to us needing a brand new website as the old one had been taken offline. We built the website from the ground up taking a fresh new approach alongside Osmington Village Hall.

Relaunch Of Weymouth And Portland Info Website

We’re excited to announce that we have relaunched the Weymouth and Portland Information website. The website is an internal project of ours and one that’s needed attention for a while. The main aim of the redesign was to make the website responsive and easier for users to navigate around.

New Website For R-em Therapies

We have just launched a new website for Emma at R-EM Therapies. R-EM Therapies is a new client of Alacrify’s that we’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with. R-EM came to us needing a new website as the old site was starting to show its age. The old site also wasn’t responsive and was also unsecure which negatively impacted the site's search engine rankings as well as being hard for users to access on their mobiles and tablets.

New Website For Ecs Special Projects

We have just launched a new website for ECS Special Projects. This is another website of ours that we originally built many years ago. The old site stood the test of time and still performed very well in Google searches, but the time had come for the look and feel to be updated in line with more contemporary design approaches.
