Cotswold Bowls Centre
E-commerce online shop
Cotswold Bowls Centre required a new online shop to sell their lawn bowls products. The website needed to be clean and simple to manage, allowing products to be updated easily.
Since the launch of the website, Cotswold Bowls Centre has successfully processed regular sales. They have been able to adjust pricing and change product details as required.
The site is built on a responsive template that works for mobile and desktop devices. We adjusted CSS styles to improve the overall look and feel of the website from desktop, tablet and smartphone devices. There is a meta tag manager in the site for all products and pages within the website. This has helped set all meta details for the site, build a sitemap and submitted it to Google. The site has seen progressive organic growth within the Google search engine.
Built on the latest Joomla CMS with VirtueMart shopping cart on a gantry template, with a one-page checkout and PayPal payment gateway, the shop allows customers to choose, checkout, and monitor their orders progress. An SSL certificate on the server protects customer security. Using Wicko Design’s website maintenance service the site receives regular site audits, admin protection and full site backup to another server, ensuring all details are protected.
Visit Cotswold Bowles Centre and browse the bowls products.

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.
Corporate and Wedding Photographer - SLR Photography
Outgoing and extremely bubbly Shannon Robinson of SLR-photography wanted to separate her wedding photography from her corporate photography work.
The website we designed has an easy to use Joomla CMS system, allowing Shannon to edit and upload new images keeping the site looking fresh and up to date. The site incorporates clean design with fresh brand colours and an individual funky headline typeface.
The front page has a range of images from a gallery that allows each image to be enlarged in a pop-up box.
Built into the site, there’s a blog section where articles about new photoshoots and advice are shared. Blogs are initially displayed in preview mode with the option to open to read in full.
Galleries and Shoots pages have a tab style display which slides left and right to show large images which can then be opened to display more information and related images.
The Testimonials area has a montage of images and supporting text presented in a grid.
Nick Currie Professional Tree Stump Removal
Nick Currie briefed us to design a new logo and build a new website. Nick wanted a simple site that would show off his tree stump grinding and removal business.
The logo was designed using the C of Currie to symbolise a grinding and cutting wheel. The C symbol is also used for avatar icons for social media such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
The responsive website design works well for Nick, allowing him to show his site and services to customers when on location. With videos published on YouTube and incorporated into the site, Nick can play these to fill the mobile screen, showing customers exactly how his stump grinder works.
Also built into the website is the option to collect customer details into a mailing list. They can then be mailed from a built-in newsletter template mailing system all held and managed within the site.
