Bespoke Design Case Study for Counselling Client

David Whistance

On July 03, 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

With the recent launch of Active Images, PHD Interactive have added a great facility to their website editor that we recommend clients make use of. It aids navigation and provides us designers with a great tool to engage visitors and encourage them to take a look at what's on offer... ideally resulting in an enquiry, subscription or some form of action. The website editor includes some free 'call to action' graphics (such as the one opposite) and we're also enjoying making custom graphics for our clients. Get in touch if you'd like us to make something for you.

“David made the whole process of upgrading my website to silver very easy to do. Since I have little technological ability he made the process easy to understand. The emails I received from him were prompt and courteous. I felt reassured that my business needs to promote my website were being handled in a professional manner. ” See full case study
