An Out of the Box Hamper Solution Delivered for Just In Time Gourmet

Who doesn’t like receiving gifts? What’s more, gifts packed full of foodie treats? Just In Time Gourmet’s products and hampers are truly divine and yes, we’re speaking from experience!

We had the privilege of working with this family business and owners Jodee and Justin Wearne to redesign and develop their new website. The existing site had been tarnished with black hat SEO and outsourcing by a local provider so Jodee and Justin very cautiously handed their baby over to us.

The new responsive website showcases some exciting features.

Just In Time Gourmet Home Page

Our primary goal was to promote Just In Time Gourmet’s 3 core services: Individual Products, Hampers and Create Your Own Hampers. This was achieved by creating a primary and secondary navigation, you’ll see that the site actually has a quite a few pages but these have been streamlined into tidy menus all accessible from the home page. Customers are able to shop for one of these services or combine all three. The process of this is key and is explained quite simply on the Create Your Own Hamper page.

We cleverly transformed our cart and checkout system and created a super cart (My Order) that allows custom packages to be created. Customers can purchase individual hampers, customise Just In Time Gourmet hampers or create their own hampers. These orders are collated all within the My Order page and makes the ordering process nice and easy.

Also unique to Just In Time Gourmet’s checkout is the ability to send orders to numerous delivery addresses. This means that I can spoil myself with some truffles and create my own hamper with only the products that my family like in Melbourne – no olives, no crackers and definitely no turkish delights! The bonus is that my truffles will be delivered for free! because free shipping applies to orders within Perth Metro. Win win!

Ah, the beauty of Tentacle! It has the wonderful ability of adapting to our clients needs and means we can create the perfect solution for the day-to-day operation of any business. It makes life so easy and earns us lots of points – it’s out of the box hampers made easy!

We think you’ll agree, the website is beautifully designed and totally functional. We’d love to hear your thoughts but most of all we encourage you to visit the site, who knows this maybe the perfect gift for the next birthday, thank you or get well gift that you need to buy.

Style Mecca’s Hot Online Fashion Store – Launch Day!

stylemecca-machome

We’re super excited to launch the Style Mecca website today. Featuring an all Australian lineup of designers, including: Alessa, Anu, First Base, Sara Phillips and White Suede, Style Mecca celebrates Australian fashion!

With a background in marketing and a passion for fashion, Eloise brings a wealth of enthusiasm to the online market, engaging with socially savvy women on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Style Mecca has already captured an enviable pool of social followers – even before the site was live.

Our designer created a beautifully modern canvas to showcase Style Mecca’s unique designer brands. The website is a fantastic port of call for keeping up with the latest fashion trends in the blog, otherwise simply sign up and newsletters can come to you. The site wouldn’t be a great little online store without our very own Tentacle system – a full e-commerce facility that is harmoniously linked in with WordPress.

We have no doubts that Style Mecca will continue to share her fashion inspirations in a digital marketplace. Join the social clubs, shop online and keep up to date with the latest fashion trends by following Style Mecca.

3…2…1…Lift off for Outta Space!

Outta Space is a self storage company located in Murray Bridge, South Australia. They have been operating for over 3 years and decided that it was time to have a online presence. Although we are based in a different state they were happy to work with us over email, Skype, DropBox and the phone to create a website that was “out of this world” (pun intended!).

Together we decided that a WordPress site was the perfect solution for their needs and we set our sights on creating a design to match their professional and approachable team.

Whilst they decided a fully responsive site was not necessary for them at this time, they still wanted their site to work on a phone, so we created them a site that re-sizes nicely to fit a portrait mobile layout.

The alien spaceship was a cute way for our starfishes to have a bit of fun with the design and programming on the home page and the 404 error page ! We love brands with character…

After we completed the design, they decided to also outsource their content entry to us too. This is a useful option for clients who would like a little help to reach a specific launch deadline. The test site was then delivered with all the text and image content ready to be tweaked, rather than it being initially entered by the client. This fast-tracked the Outta Space beta testing and launch process.

Check out the site (on your mobile or desktop) and if you are looking for storage in South Australia give them a call or zip them an email.

We decided that this site called for Pandan LaunchCake to align with the green themed site. Pandan chiffon cake is made with the pandan leaf essence in a sponge cake. If you are in Perth and want to taste this bright green sponge cake (no food colouring added!) call Eve on 0400603340 or email chiffon.pandan@gmail.com… it’s worth a try and the team here loved it.

Revitalised Responsive Website for Steven Walter Children’s Cancer Research Foundation

The Steven Walter Children’s Cancer Research Foundation have kicked off their new branding with a smart responsive site. Clean, friendly and accessible on mobile and desktop browsers. Run your fingers across the Home Page banner!

The Foundation runs many fund raising events throughout the year so an event calendar was an essential addition. By adding an physical address in the WordPress, a google map preview is automatically generated for the event.

Access Circus site gets fresh new look

What a busy (and rainy) week it has been here at the Department of Starfisheries. Yesterday we launched a ‘fresh’ and new site for Access Circus, the social arm of Western Australian circus and entertainment company, Fliptease. The idea grew out of social circus programs that she had been running in regional Western Australia.

Fliptease had been working independently with the education system, youth at risk and indigenous youth since 2004 and the development of a separate business dedicated to this kind of work was a natural step. The new site features improved galleries, a blog and more integrated social…as pictured below!

We celebrated this launch with cupcakes brought in by Renee and Alex that were made by the team at Kustom Cupcakes. We love that she brought her own launch cake in for the team and wow, they were delicious!
