David Lloyd Carpentry Website design brief

David Lloyd Carpentry we pride themselves on being able to cover every aspect of Carpentry, from hanging a door to constructing a traditional cut roof and everything in between. They also offer a full renovation service, this can be anything from a bathroom or utility re-fit through to minor building works and take a sympathetic approach to our heritage work with a view to preserve as much of the buildings history as possible whilst ensuring it will remain a useable and valued building for many more years.

David offers three very distinct services – Carpentry, Renovation and Conservation. He prides himself on quality and the use of excellent materials alongside first class finish. Therefore the website and logo needed to reflect quality, professionalism, minimalism and attention to detail.

How I developed the website

The three services lead me to create homepage divided into the tree main sections that acted as a landing page to lead customers off to the service that they most need, and using a showcase image that interacts on hover.

The colour scheme of white, black and gold is simple and classic, and accompanied by the classic yet modern serif font, exudes sophistication and class. The simplified line drawing of the Malvern Hills gives a subtle nod to the location of the Carpentry business. The logo also worked well in circular format when used on social media and workwear.

‘About’ and ‘Contact’ was condensed onto a single page and connected with anchors to the menu, accompanied by automated updates to the Instragram feed which shows clients latest work, without the website needing regular updates of new pictures: It all happens automatically.

Review

“Becky turned my vision of a website into a reality taking into account all my vague ideas of what I wanted she produced exactly what I was after. A simple, smart and professional looking site. She was very thorough and made sure I was happy with everything before finalising my site. Would highly recommend her for any of your website and design needs.”
