When NEL wanted a new website, they knew they were after a WordPress solution – their current website couldn’t be updated, and their core business messages were a number of years out of date. WordPress, a content management system, would allow them to update their website themselves. This meant they could effectively communicate with their target audience, both now and in the future.

NEL were under the impression that WordPress would be an automatic fix to their problem by providing endless customisation options. While this is true, the number of features WordPress has available depends massively on the type of theme installed. Commercial themes have their limitations, and it was for this reason I suggested a bespoke solution. NEL had rather particular requirements that would have been tricky to meet with a generic, commercial theme.

After a little discussion and a few coffees, NEL showed me examples of websites they liked. I told them about how these examples would translate into a WordPress solution, making sure they knew exactly what was involved so there were no nasty surprises later on. We then came up with a website idea that would become the basis of the project.

The Build

During the website build, we had a couple of meetings to see how the new website was coming along. In these meetings, it was stressed that the website had to match the current brand and be future-proof.

It was important that NEL was happy with the design of the website at each stage. I regularly compared the working version with our initial website idea, to make sure all requirements were being met.

A Working Solution

In the end, NEL have a website that keeps their online content exciting and up-to-date, with minimal effort on their part. The website automatically pulls photos from their latest news articles, their core business messages can be updated with the click of a button, and their social content is easily accessible from anywhere.
