Horticultural polythene product wholesaler XL Horticulture came to Phototropic for a redesign as well as to control their own content with SetSeed.
I came up with a design which reflected the earthy and natural environment their products are used in. Their audience will be more familiar with how their products are used, than how they are made. I therefore felt it was important to identify their audience in this way, rather than focus on the technical background of the products themselves.
The site features a three-colour pallet: sky blue for the header, plant greens for the central section, and earthy brown for the footer. I also incorporated a earthy texture theme throughout as well as utilised a prismatic effect in the header as a reference to the ability of XL Horticulture's products to filter out various light frequencies.

We worked with Phototropic to produce our new website. They listened to us and came up with a format we absolutely love. Since launching the new website we have had lots of compliments on how clean and friendly it is, but still very informative. We would recommend Phototropic to anybody.
Dr. Simon Foxall needed a new website for his new company, Focus on Sound, designed and built to promote and sell his music dictionary software programs.
As with any product launch, promotional content is likely to change frequently, therefore Simon knew he needed the ability to change his own content. SetSeed, our Content Management System (which we also sell as a white-label CMS product to the industry), let's him do this with ease.
We worked closely with Simon to achieve the clean and stylish look that he wanted from his new website. Simon wanted to use a grey-scale colour pallet, which meant for a challenging but rewarding design process.

We were lucky to find Ben. He's highly talented and very easy to work with. His system was perfect for us. First he designed a superb website, then with SetSeed he gave us a means of editing and updating that is flexible and easy to use. He has also good-humouredly been prepared to put up with what must have seemed like endless requests for additional features and tweaks. He is the ideal website designer.
When Nicky and Pip took over the luxury Muddifords Court Country House with it's unique bed and breakfast rooms, they needed to establish a strong web presence and do well on search engines.
Design was important to the client as the website needed to convey the luxury of the rooms and house. The client was thrilled with the contrast, colour and typography that we came up with for the site, as well as the new logo design.
The website is powered by SetSeed to allow full control over the content by Nicky and Pip.
