  • Exact Kitchens

    Kitchen website

    Exact Kitchens from Wokingham near Reading briefed us to update their website. They wanted to make it mobile-friendly, but images needed to be big enough to be displayed on large screens in their showroom.

    The website displays high-quality images from our clients’ product range and customer case studies. We optimised images for the web while ensuring quality and detail were retained

    The website was built using the latest Joomla CMS. As well as having a responsive web template, it has a fully smartphone-friendly web-based admin section.

  • Harmony Blinds website

    Harmony Blinds Reading

    Harmony Blinds

    Harmony Blinds website is built on a Joomla CMS system that allows our client to edit and update all page content themselves.

    The full range of blinds is available to view with a filter option to display only selected product types. Each range page has its own image gallery showing blinds installed in homes, so customers can see how they look in a real-life situation.

    The site has a simple form where customers can request a visit and order new blinds. This has been very successful in generating lots of new leads.

    Three versions of the home page were produced to generate different landing pages for Reading, Bracknell and Wokingham. Each is sent to load depending on the domain name used. This helps search engine optimisation and generates leads specific to each area.

  • ONI

    ONI website


    Conversion of website to WordPress

    ONI have developed the Nanoimager, the world’s first desktop super-resolution microscope, capable of visualising, tracking and imaging individual molecules in living cells with 20nm resolution.

    ONI engaged us to help manage and maintain their existing website. The site had been developed in house by our client using Ginger – an open-source automation framework. To help them maintain the website and make changes and updates, ONI required a web design partner experienced in HTML coding.

    Wicko Design looked after all aspects of the website for ONI, running all changes through the source code management tool GitHub, enabling us to collaborate and share updates with our client and test changes before going live.

    In the website’s original format, making changes to content required utilising a complex editing system which took time and required a level of technical ability. As ONI grew in size, the volume of updates increased significantly, exposing the limitations of Ginger. It was decided to migrate the web content to a platform that ONI could more easily manage and update internally.

    For the final phase of our involvement in this project, Wicko Design converted the ONI website from Ginger to WordPress. We rebuilt ONI’s website on the new platform, replicating the dynamic design, the fresh, clean layout and the stunning, super-high-resolution imagery.
