Web development portfolio – simplified

Recent WordPress sites from wwwolf:

The same as on the main Portfolio page, but as a simple list. (There are a few additional sites listed at the foot.)

  • Friars Moor Vets website - HomeFriars Moor Vets
    We’re particularly proud of this site – once again based on Responsive Pro, with quite a lot going on ‘under the hood’, but deceptively simple to the user. Once again, we’ve had a lot of great feedback 🙂 Explore…
    (There’s also a second site, based on the same design and framework, for one of Friars Moor’s initiatives, the Dairy Sheep & Goat Consultancy and Conference.)
    Design: TinCat Design

  • Leafy Green – vegan food deliveryLeafy Green website
    Lovely business, lovely people, lovely food… and a lovely website with some neat simple features.
    Built using a customised Responsive template, with client-editable tables to change menu offerings daily. Designed to evolve with the business, there’s space for events and a growing image gallery. It is responsive, working well on a variety of devices – the ‘blackboards’ hang from each other on narrow screens, and phone number becomes tappable button 🙂

  • Mack’s Frankenwein – wine importsMack's Frankewein website
    The brief for this site was ‘classy, while remaining friendly and personal’, and Tincat Design achieved this beautifully. Built by customising a standard Responsive theme, implementation was trickier than it looked – the lovely simple result is rewarding (as is consumption of Helmut’s wonderful products!)
    Design: TinCat Design

  • In-Rhythm – 5 Rhythms dance classes & workshopsIn-Rhythm website
    Close to my heart – my passion… and my other work! A fun and dynamic site, using a different theme from usual.
    Design: Jon Ralls & Bernadette Ryder
    Platform: WordPress
  • Challenging CoachingChallenging Coaching website and John Blakey – The Trusted Executive
    Challenging Coaching is a redesign of a site originally built by wwwolf to support the launch of the book. Following the rebuild, one of the authors asked us to use essentially the same design for his personal site (image to come), so now there are two ‘sister sites’ using the same mechanisms – Responsive Pro as the underlying theme, but with substantial customisation and plugins to work in a very different way. We’re rather chuffed with these.

  • Kilmichael Deluxe Cottages – Isle of ArranArran Luxury Cottages website
    Beautiful high-end cottages on the Isle of Arran (associated with Kilmichael House Hotel – a site we have managedfor many years). Brief was to replicate an existing (non-WordPress) design exactly, but using WordPress – which was challenging, fun… and successful!
    Original Design: Steve Mackins (no longer doing websites)
    Platform: WordPress
  • Confident Philanthropy – consultancyConfident Philanthropy website
    Simplicity was the watchword here – and a little unconventional yet easy to use. Lovely design by TinCat and, again starting from the basic Responsive theme, another deceptively simple and easily navigable result, behaving well on a variety of platforms, using cunning behaviour of background images 🙂
    Design: TinCat Design
    Platform: WordPress
  • Medicine Dance – 5 Rhythms dance-based events & workshopsMedicine Dance website
    A collaborative body of work by two amazing dance teachers, Bernadette Ryder and Dawn Morgan. Simple sites, for roughly twice-yearly events for which we run the admin, promo, communications and onsite organisation – it shows only most recent/forthcoming event, and links through to Eventbrite for larger events.
    Design: based on flyer by Ben Jarlett
    Platform: WordPress
  • Mindspring – coaching & training (& shop)Mindspring website
    Taken over from another developer, and completely rebuilt to replace obsolete technologies, while preserve original design and functionality as closely as possible – a particularly technically challenging project. Includes an online shop.
    Original Design: ninetyfivecreative
    Platform: WordPress
  • Glow Consulting – facilitating transformationGlow Consulting website
    We’re especially proud of this one – a real team effort: the client’s focus, brilliant graphic design, wwwolf implementation, in Coen de Groot’s customised hosting environment.
    Design: TinCat Design
    Platform: hand coded
  • Head4Performance – coaching & trainingHead4Performance website
    Personal and business coaching – brief was ‘lively and professional’ to appeal both to individual and corporate clients. (Note that active 3rd party SEO management means that this site does not always preserve its original design and functionality!)
    Design: TinCat Design
    Platform: WordPress
  • Transition Expertise – executive coachingTransition Expertise website
    Executive coaching ‘plus’. Brief was ‘clean and professional’ very much for the big corporates market – uses some interesting plug-ins/scripting.
    Design: TinCat Design
    Platform: WordPress
  • wwwolf – web development & morewwwolf home page screen grab
    Last, and by no means least – this website is part of a full rebrand for wwwolf by TinCat Design and we absolutely LOVE IT! 🙂 The site is again a customised Responsive site, demonstrating use of some sophisticated techniques to achieve a beautiful, fun, clean, and simple user experience.
    (As with the others, ‘View Site’ will open it in another tab/window, to look around without leaving this page.)

  • UK Reiki Federation
    one of my longest-standing clients, and the third full rebuild for them over the years, this site incorporated legacy features while having a new look and feel and whole new mechanism to allow client updating of much of the content. Due for another ‘refresh’.

If we have learned one thing from the history of invention and discovery, it is that in the long run – and often in the short one – the most daring prophesies seem laughably conservative.
