our brief for this job was to make a plumber’s website that looked nothing like all the other plumbers’ websites! so we came up with a clean, fresh, spacious design which you can see at aqueco.co.uk. every page has a ‘snippet’ of info to show visitors the importance of saving water and co2, and how this can save them money. lumpy lemon also designed the logo to be used on all the business materials.

martin stott is a busy man! he’s head of environment and resources at warwickshire county council, works for several charities, writes books, authors reports, and somehow finds time for photography and growing his own veggies. martin-stott.com was developed to bring together all his writings and information on his work and interests into one easy to use, clear, website.

oxtalk is a charity providing ‘talking newspapers’ to blind and visually impaired people around oxford. when they approached us they were still using cassette tapes, but knew they would need to switch to digital media in the near future. we designed their new logo and built oxtalk.org.uk to the highest standards of accessibility – it was unanimously approved by their network members. we now apply this level of accessibility to all our sites as a matter of course. we recently added the functionality for the ‘listen online’ feature, so members can now subscribe to the rss feed (podcast) for the latest edition, or listen to any edition from the archive.
in 2008, claire and andy james swapped the rat race in london to restore a beautiful ‘trulli’ farmhouse in puglia in southern italy to be their home and an accommodation business. rusticpuglia.com allows them to easily manage all their prices, enquiries and bookings online, as well as being able to update any page of the website and write a regular blog to keep everyone up-to-date with their progress.

transitionculture.org is the personal blog of rob hopkins, one of the founders of the rapidly-spreading transition towns movement. his wordpress-powered blog was looking a bit dated so he asked us to completely redesign the entire site from the ground up. we developed several wordpress plugins to display the wide range of information on the site, and used open source software to improve the performance. around 1500 people visit the site daily, many of them getting involved & leaving comments.
