New Branding for Obsidian Environmental

We’ve recently created the new branding for Obsidian Environmental, who offer a range of environmental solutions.

The new logo was inspired by the shape of the obsidian stone, with the negative aspect of the design forming the letter ‘O’. The clean and corporate typeface reflects the logo design and can be carried through seamlessly online.

If your branding is in need of a refresh or a redesign, we would love to hear from you.

Improved Features for Simpson Associates

Over the last few months, we have been introducing a range of improved features to the Simpson Associates website. As specialists in information management solutions who operate across a variety of sectors and industries, it’s vital that their website is consistantly updated and refreshed.

The resources section has been overhauled to display full information about their current training courses and data sheets, along with white papers and company videos, whilst the events section and booking facility has also been improved.

Our lead designer, Jack is also working closely with Simpson Associates to redesign the interior of their offices.

igoo New Look

We’re very excited to be working on the new igoo identity and website this month. Our new look will be unveiled in March so keep your eyes peeled for big changes in the next few weeks!

Driving Customers to Steve James Motor Cars

We’re shining our spotlight on long standing igoo client, Steve James Motor Cars. The used car specialists underwent a big web refresh last year, which helped to make the process of finding the perfect car a whole lot easier.

This year, we’ve focused on redesigning the homepage to promote the ‘pay-as-you-go’ car financing service. We have refreshed the finance calculator, which allows customers to estimate their average monthly repayments and find the right car for them.

In the last few months, we have also produced a range of external signage at the company’s main offices in South Liverpool.

Killer Ink Tattoo Responsive Site Launched

We have just completed an extensive redevelopment for our long standing ecommerce client, Killer Ink Tattoo.

After a series of planning, close discussions, wireframing and mockups, we started to craft the new design and functionality for their network of 13 websites, which service customers across the whole of Europe.

Their multinational store, which consists of 13 different domains and languages, now scales beautifully to render in almost any device, from huge cinema displays to handheld smartphones, and adapts to changes in device orientation and user interaction.

We’ll be keeping a close eye on our conversion tracking metrics to provide us with direct feedback on exactly how the redesign is faring and we’ll continue to roll out new features to further increase the usability of the site, with specific focus on their growing customer base.

The Importance of Securing Your Domain Name

Last week, the UKIP website appeared to go down and instead displayed a generic holding page- suggesting that the domain had failed to be renewed. As UKIP were quickly attempting to resolve the issue, independent record label, Alcopop! Records, claimed to have bought the domain from GoDaddy.

Luckily for UKIP, the website had already been registered to it’s chairman and still had a year to go before it was freely available for general sale.

And unsurprisingly, this isn’t the first time a significant domain had been compromised. In 2007, the google.de domain appeared to have been down for several days, with reports that someone had simply failed to renew it…

Thankfully, all of the domains that igoo manage are on auto renew, meaning your web address will never be left to expire!

If you have any questions about your domains held at igoo, just get in touch.
