Going Cuckoo: Achieving Work-Life Balance

At the moment we are very fortunate to be facing the challenge of managing many different projects simultaneously. Juggling priorities to make sure they are all moving ahead, while not working 24/7 is a perpetual challenge and occasional source of stress.

This past week I've taken advantage of these long summer evenings to do my bit towards the community allotments in the village by putting up a rabbit-proof fence at the front of the community plots. Creating a sturdy and reasonably smart piece of fencing over the course of this week has been a really good antidote to the incredible amount of website code I've worked on each day.

This evening as I was putting a coat of wood-preservative on the finished fence a cuckoo was calling in the valley accompanied by the most wonderful song thrush. After the sun had set and the fence was painted I went home feeling like I'd had two days in one - work followed by a mini-break; a perfect way to unwind.


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.
