    Example Web Sites from 1998 to the present day ... See DesignList

    Calco UK Web Services has deployed hundreds web sites locally and many more nationally and internationally. The following is a selection of some of our local work.

    Click the image of the site you are interested in and an example of the site will open in a new window. It would be fair to say that most of our websites are designed by the clients themselves; in that they have told us what they want to achieve and what they want the website to look like. We have then made sure that Google will see the site and that the site looks good in the most popular browsers and can be read by Screen Readers so that people who surf the web but cannot see can understand the pages and get the information and products with the minimum of fuss.

     

    The examples of website design include sites that are:-

    • Designed to be EASY for the client to update themselves
    • Designed, Registered, Built and SEO in a Day
    • Contained hundreds of real pages (not database pages like Joomla)
    • Contain copy that is considered to be almost poetry and images that are art in themselves
    • Updated daily by Calco (e.g. image optimisation for critical selling strategies like estate agencies)
    • Secure Databases with confidential data



    IT Group International

    IT Group International are specialists in ERP using Microsoft Dynamics NAV and as such required a website that would be easy to navigate, simple to update and has a fresh modern feel. The menu bar at the top of the page offers two click access to any part of the site, while the left menu allows for feature slots that promote popular pages or new products. Using SUSSed IT Group International can update the website safely whenever they like. The website is an interim step towards their global (mutipoint) marketing strategy.

    Plockton Yacht Charters

    The brief was to design a website that would perform well in Google and be visually appealing to customers. Time was of the essence and so the pages are designed in such a way that content can be quickly added without worrying about upsetting the structure of the page. The site relies on the fact that Plockton and the surrounding are is one of the most scenic places in the world and as such we used the images to sell the product. The use of text is primarily Who we are, What we do and Where we do it with pricing and specification for good measure.

    Grainger Roofing Services

    As leader in their field, Grainger Roofing required a website that instantly showed customers that their work is of exceptional quality, their client base were all household names and that the site be easy to use and be easy to update themselves by staff who had little or no experience of web technologies. The site was designed from scratch in-house and gives a different modern feel to the Construction Industry

    Yacht Charter Scotland - Skye Yachts

    Our brief ... to be able to access any of the information about any vessel in the fleet easily. We think the design which incidentally expands and cntracts according to the viewer's screen size, satisfies the brief in a minimal space.
