Frances came to us looking for a simple eCommerce site to sell her children's bookcases. We designed and built a clean yet friendly site with PayPal integration. The BigBookLittleBookCardboardBox has featured in both The Guardian and The Telegraph and we continue to work with Frances as her business develops.
Here's what Frances had to say:
"I've been working with Mouse Will Play since 2010. The design brief was to create a simple, clean, uncluttered ecommerce website for my innovative children's bookcase. Helen fulfilled the brief with her very first designs and the site has stood the test of time, winning a number of website design awards and resulting in a very good conversion rate. Helen has been fantastic to work with, always making changes promptly and going the extra mile by providing advice and looking out for ways to promote my website. Most importantly, Mouse Will Play's websites are very SEO friendly with tidy and well-structured HTML - our on-page optimisation for each new keyword translates to Page 1 Google rankings within days to weeks."
Moo Boutique approached us looking for a refresh of their website design. During conversations, we found they didn't have any way of linking up their online sales with the sales made in their shop.
As well as building an eCommerce site, we provided a system that links online and offline sales to give combined reporting and stock control.
The Little Red Berry Co.
The Little Red Berry Co. make delicious fruit liqueurs, by hand, from locally sourced fruit.
In collaboration with the talented illustrator Rachelle Meyer, we designed the logo, packaging and built a site with PayPal integration for online ordering.
After only eight months after launching the business, the website won the Ackrill Media Best Company Website Award 2011.
You In Frame Photography
Behind Andy Wilkinson's You In Frame Photography website lies some clever technical wizardry. We built a PC application that synchronises images stored locally on Andy's PC with the images in his website's gallery. Therefore doing away with the need for Andy to laboriously upload his images one by one.
There's also a password protected area where customers can log in, preview all the images taken during a shoot, select images and place an order.
Here's what Andy said:
"A Big SHOUT to the wonderful folk at the best Website developers Ever! Their customer service is the very BEST. thanks guys"
John Phillip of Skipton are retailers of sound and vision products. They appoached us looking for a complete redesign.
We built a very easy-to-use admin system that enables them to add new products, special offers and clearance items ensuring the website is always fresh and up-to-date.
Businesses located the oldest quarter of Skipton wanted to encourage people to venture off the High Street and discover all the things this little known area has to offer. And so 'Uptown Skipton' was formed to promote the variety of unique, independent businesses found in this area.
Mouse Will Play got involved to deploy some cutting edge technology to help spread the message.
We provided small barcodes (known as QR codes) that were placed on flyers and shop windows around the town. Visitors with smartphones can scan the barcodes to be directed to the mobile-friendly Uptown Skipton website (built by us - of course). Here they can take a virtual tour, find out about events and special offers from local businesses and read more about the history of the area.
A month after launch, Uptown Skipton was picked up by Northern Life magazine. You can read the full article here (opens a large image).
