An Event Listing Website that allows the user to search for local music and performing arts events. The website needed to look clean and vibrant on the front, with a multi-functional database management system at the back.

 

The back-end allows Link-Me access to live event information feeds, meaning little time is required for administration.

From the outset we have found Brainy Sites approach to our project to be of a particularly high standard. We were naturally apprehensive about entrusting our first web project to a new agency in the market but the output we have seen has been fantastic. Right the way through all designs have been professional and creative, with fast turnaround often earlier than projected, This has been coupled with a fantastic service response to any issue or query and a backend user system which has allowed us fantastic flexibility around a lot of our content management.

 

We have greatly appreciated their structured approach to carrying out work and the subsequent support we have received when required. There is no substitute for knowing exactly where you stand in business and Brainy Sites have always been able to give us a framework that provides just that. Deciding who to choose as your web design partner can be a little pot luck as very few of us understand exactly what is involved but I have no hesitation in recommending Brainy Sites. They have never once let us down, moreover they have far exceeded our expectations many times.

Anthony Lettings is a letting agent in North London. They required a fully functional Estate Agent Management System to be created on the Adobe Business Catalyst platform. The site was designed around their brand with a beautiful full-page photo banner for the homepage.

 

The website also features a comprehensive Live Chat system which allows visitors to instantly chat with an Anthony Lettings representative The brochure for prospective landlords utilises Flash to show as an interactive flip-book.

During a full re-branding of our Letting Agency we needed a new website and it was recommended by a top client of ours that we speak with Brainy Sites.

In early stages of the website creation a number of alterations and 'tweaks' were required and each time Brainy Sites swiftly turned our requests into technical updates, whilst at the same time using their web design knowledge to recommend innovative technical enhancements to our site.

The appearance of our site was central to our prototype and we weren't let down. Our new website is pleasing on the eye and the page transitions are perfect. Overall we are over the moon with the aesthetics of the site.

In our profession another very important part of a web site is the administration side, where for example we can add/remove properties and prospective tenants/landlords can interact with us on the site. The admin side provided by Brainy Sites is very easy to use, which is obviously very important in any busy industry. We're able to change the content of the website with a few clicks and with the ease in which potential clients can contact us through the site, we couldn't ask for more.

Bristol Van Removals needed a professional looking, no-nonsense website that guided users quickly and easily to the appropriate service, where they are prompted to complete a contact form. This form is instantly emailed to BVR with the requirements of the new lead, allowing them to contact the client before their competitors.

 

We also had a high level of success with Bristol Van Removal's Google Adwords campaign which is part of our Local Services Online Marketing Strategy.

 

 

A brochure site for a computer training company. We were asked to make sure this site was simple to navigate so used big buttons and pastel colours. There is an online booking form and an interactive map showing visitors which areas are covered.

I didn't have a huge budget for the Silver Training site, but it was important that it looked slick and stood apart from competitor sites. The Brainy Sites service was above and beyond what I expected. Not only was the work impressively speedy but it was created to the exact specifications of another website I had liked the design of. Their extra work on the 'interactive map' was first-rate – they took an idea from my head and made it look excellent on the screen and best. I've been finding myself having to regularly update the content on my sites web pages. Initially I must admit I was a little apprehensive that I'd have to spend a lot of time trying to learn how to use a new bit of software but it's been so easy to use. I can literally click on the text on my site and change it live! The whole finished product looks great, and it stands out from the crowd once again. Not only this but it was also amazingly good value: I have seen far worse brochure sites costing far more money.

As their name suggests, Southern Counties Heating and Plumbing (SCHP) are a heating and plumbing installer based in the South East of the UK. When they approached us they already had a website that needed a facelift. We provided a fresh and modern brochure site for them to educate their potential clients and publish their services online. We used a web 2.0 style with light green colours and gradient to give the site a friendly feel. We also made sure that the companies contact details and contact form were on every page making it quick and easy for potential customers to contact SCHP as soon as they felt ready.

 

 

A lovely brochure site with hand painted features. We designed them a logo and also installed a Content Management System. The bright and colourful design was loved by this Fundraising Consultancy and its visitors.

I was looking for a very unique design for my Blue Tree Fundraising site, since the charity sector is quite a 'delicate' market-place and the branding needed to be right. I needed a 'softer' look and didn't want to appear overly corporate, but still had to ensure that the website was taken seriously by potential clients as well. When I asked the Brainy Sites guys to try and create a 'watercolour' effect, something rarely seen on websites, I thought I had asked too much. But the team at Brainy Sites proved me wrong and produced a perfect end-result which has been a hit with our clients. Since my website has gone online, I have had to add a few more pages to it. I must admit that not only has it been easy to use, but I actually love using it, to the point where I actually look forward to having to make changes to the site. Thanks again Brainy Sites.

I'd like to thank Laurence and the team at Brainy Sites for their help and support in setting up my ecommerce website.

A brochure site for a DJ duo from Bristol. This site needed to look urban and edgy to appeal to their audience. We used a 'grungy' style to let the media rich content stand out.

Having a large and diverse online portfolio we struggled with many web designers to get the correct look, feel and practicality neccessary for our constantly changing site. With Brainy Sites we found an effect and helpful solution to allow us to fully showcase our work in the best light possible whilst maintaining the ease and speed of being able to constantly update our site with fresh content. The setup of the site and guidance after its construction allowed ourselves to easily upload fresh videos, photos, blogs, and mixes whilst being on the move around the world. Being easily approachable and simple to work with as well as offering a solution to Interlink our online social network and video sites, Brainy Sites offered a solution to encompass and showcase all of our different assets to our business.

A brochure site with a blog style front page. This site has a heavy focus on social media with a Twitter feed, Facebook social plugin, and animated social media icons.

We have been using Brainy Tools to manage our website for the past year and it has made owning and running a website a pleasure. We have needed to change our webpage's content a number of times over the past few months due to our changing client base. Brainy Tools allows me to change the content of any page, post blogs, and update event listings all from my laptop. Brainy Sites' service has been phenomenal with any major change to the site being actioned within a week. Their expert knowledge on the web, its uses, functions and downfalls gives them the insight to suggest ways of constantly improving our content for better SEO and usability. Since the beginning they have suggested the best ways to go about what we wanted to achieve and we have been very happy with their choices, from design and aesthetics to functionality and layout. We will be continuing our relationship with Brainy Sites in the future for all our web based projects. Highly recommended.

Brainy Sites have been invaluable to me in setting up my own business by providing me with an affordable website which not only looks up-to-date and professional but also has the software to allow me to keep on top of my clients. I can not only track where my visitors are coming from but how they are moving around my site and which of my photos are being viewed the most. Brainy Sites aftercare service has been excellent; they certainly know what they are talking about when it comes to online business. I was very impressed how they combine their skills in the market while at the same time catering for my needs and requests in the design process. Very impressed all round.

The design of this photography brochure site needed to allow the brilliant photographs to stand out. We went for a minimalist design with lots of white, except for the logo which has a subtle touch of colour.

Mayadisa is a high end eCommerce shop packed with custom features. Just about every detail has been customised, from functionality through to graphics. Due to the high value of the items sold, the site needed to show that Mayadisa is a seriously premium brand.

Brainy Sites' knowledge and expertise has been invaluable in creating a fashion ecommerce site. They are always happy to help with new requests for additional functionality and are proactive in suggesting things that will make the site even better. The team are always professional and friendly, making the working process even easier.

This site is a bit special. We designed a full fantasy sports system including drag and drop team selection and custom shirt colours. A fun and attractive site to engage the target audience.

Working with Brainy Sites was a great experience. I had an idea for my Fantasy Sports site but didn't really know where to start. Not only did they advise me on the technical side of things, but they really helped get my business off the ground. I had no idea what was involved at the start but they guided me through the process and basically took the reigns. They created a system from scratch that was better than I ever hoped for. The game was so impressive that I am now talking to major media organisations about sponsorship for the 2012 season! Thanks again, great job.
