Bespoke Design Case Study for Counselling Client

David Whistance

On March 7, 2017 we completed a bespoke design project for this counselling client.

About the Client

David Whistance is an accredited Counsellor, Autogenic Therapist and Careers Adviser, working from in Southampton and Winchester.

Summary of Client Requirement

David opted initially for a Super Hero design for his new website. However, once he'd seen how this design option places a shadow effect around website images in the website content area, he opted instead for an Action Hero design, where the content images don't have a shadow displayed.

Design Considerations

David initially sent a standard Microsoft Clipart image of a compass to use for the design, but wasn't completely sure about copyright. So he opted for the safer option of choosing another licensed compass image from Shutterstock, which was included in the Silver design cost. Website colours were set in shades of turquoise and blue, both to contrast with the oranges of the compass image, and to mirror David's Wordpress website which his WebHealer website frequently links to.

Client Testimonial

"I enjoyed working with David to fine tune my new site design. We had useful conversations by email that gave me constructive food for thought about key design issues and options. Not only am I pleased with the result but I’ve also picked up some helpful tips along the way. Many thanks!"

We haven't set up our own Twitter account yet, so in the meantime why not take a look at what our strategic partner WebHealer is up to.

New Stuff

Yes we know this design is dated and clunky. Like all good cobblers we're so busy creating beautiful designs for clients, we've neglected our own footwear. The new design is however ready for final testing and go live. Here's a teaser.

Recent Client Work

“I recently upgraded my website with Web Healer. Honestly, I couldn't decide on the best package but figured that I wouldn't lose much if I didn't like it. Cue David. With his input the only difficulty was choosing the right images. I really like my new look website, and don't feel the need to change anything. Thank you David, you offered an excellent level of service and enough information that even a novice (me), could feel involved. I appreciate this as it fits with the way that I work in my practice. I would use your service again, and highly recommend you.” See full case study
