Bespoke Design Case Study for Counselling Client

Shoreditch and City Therapy

On January 18, 2017 we completed a bespoke design project for this counselling client.

About the Client

Francis Atkinson is a senior BACP accredited counsellor and psychotherapist with 25 years of experience. He's also experienced in supervising other counsellors and psychotherapists and has worked in private practice, the education sector, and for charitable organisations.

Summary of Client Requirement

Francis opted for a new Silver "Super Hero" design for his website, which usually features just one full-width "Hero" image at the top of the website. But as he really liked 2 different images of the London City skyline, the 2 images were therefore used alternating on his different website pages.

Design Considerations

To make sure that the "Hero" images had the same depth on the screen, and so that the website contents didn't jump up and down from one page to the next, the images were cropped accurately and identically to fit the header area precisely. The images also have quite different colours present, and so for the general website colours for example the background, I chose neutral blues and greys, so as not to clash with the image colours. This also allows the images to stand out well and really make an impact.

Client Testimonial

""David has helped me enormously in being able to choose and create a new design for my website. He was patient and informative. I am very happy with his help and I am very happy with the design. it looks great. Many thanks David. Francis""

New Stuff

We've been thinking hard over the Summer about how we can help more PHD Interactive clients get access to high quality unique design without incurring the costs that tend to accompany bespoke design. There is our Silver Design service of course which is very popular and costs only 39 but PHD Interactive challenged us to come up with something else - something even better!

And so we have. We are putting finishing touches now to our Silver Gallery service. The Silver Gallery is a collection of pre-made designs, each created by an experienced designer. Clients will be able to preview their PHD Interactive website using any of these designs and choose the one they like best. Each design will be unique so once it has been chosen and paid for, no one else can have it. The cost? All we can say for now is that you will like it.
