GAvA Content Managed Website
The Guild of Aviation Artists had a vast selection of online images in its previous online gallery, but was unable to upload new ones or change content without the assistance of a web developer.
We created a self-managed website to their own design. This now allows them to add images of all the latest paintings in their exhibitions easily through an online admin console.
Each image in the gallery shows the painting title, artsist name, size and price. When a painting is sold, the system allows for the addition of a "Sold sticker" simply by ticking a box in the admin console.
Viva Language Services, Peterborough
Viva Language Services required a small business website which would promote their Spanish lessons, their Spanish E-learning option and Spanish Translation Services. The site has been developed gradually and most recently had a CMS system added to allow the owner to add new content.
The site is well optimised and ranks highly in the search engines, coming up in Google on page one for a variety of local search terms for their services. Recently we added a bespoke Wordpress blog to help with national ranking in the search engines.
What Viva Language Services says about our design: Website appearance: Excellent;
Funtionality: Excellent; Value for money: Excellent; Design feedback: I am very pleased with my website design. It projects the exact image that I wanted it to - friendly but professional.
