Picking up the Reins

Following last week's few days out of the office I am now picking up the reins again, and starting to deal with the mountain of emails that accumulated while I was off. Having lost over a stone in weight I'm going to have to be careful not to overdo it in these first few days as I've not got the fitness and strength to work long days to catch up with everything.

Key on my list of priorities are the websites for ArtWey and Bridport Open Studios. Bridport Open Studios takes place over the August Bank Holiday weekend which is at the end of the week. Most of the work has already been completed for this site, but there's still some work to do to make the most of the fantastic art that is on show during the event.

We've included the fantastic Google Maps API in the site to allow us to show where the venues are using the satellite view. This means in the rural areas around Bridport you can see exactly where to go to find the artists' work.

The Bridport Open Studios and ArtWey websites are run by ArtSeeker, the company set up by former Alacrify directors Bill and Diane Crumbleholme. It is great to still be working together on this project and there are many more developments for the project in the pipeline.

 

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.
