The Challenge

Hopwood Toons had out-grown their existing website, which was slow and clunky, difficult to navigate and was without as clear message. There was also no ecommerce facility to sell the books online.

Sharon, the website owner, needed to be able to update the website regularly, but there was no Content Management System in place to update most of the content. This meant she was unable to add to the portfolio in order to promote the new work of Hopwood Toons.

She decided that an overhaul of the entire website was necessary, and therefore came to me for a complete redesign.

Project Goals

There are two main target audiences for which there are different goals:

  1. Parents – to purchase a book and/or subscribe to the blog.
  2. Agencies – to download a synopsis of the book or animation with a view to getting involved.

The Solution

The new website is easy to navigate, with a fun, modern and fresh design. It is responsive, which means that the content is now easy to find and digest when viewed from any device – whether that be a tablet, a mobile phone or a desktop computer.

A simple system is in place to allow visitors to download synopses, subscribe to the blog and purchase books. Registration details are kept so that Sharon is able to follow up and promote new material.

WordPress has been used as a CMS (Content Management System) to allow Sharon to easily update and add to the content throughout the entire website.

I contacted Andrea after having been seriously let down by a Worcester computing company, which left me without a website for a month. Andrea came to the rescue and thankfully had a slot available to design and launch a new website for me.

I can highly recommend Andrea as your local website designer in Worcestershire – or beyond. Hugely talented, and with a real flair for her work, she has given my business the web presence it needs. Enquiries from potential clients are now flowing in from my website once again. Thank you so much Andrea.
