Platform: Joomla & Big Commerce
Visit: https://www.inveraray-castle.com and https://www.argyllcaravanpark.com

We have worked with Argyll Estates for a number of years on a variety of different projects. Always a pleasure to deal with and a lovely client to go and visit with an absolutely stunning drive to Inveraray.

We created these two Joomla sites for Inveraray Castle and the Argyll Caravan Park over 2016-2017. Both sites utilise the same look and feel and incorporate the clear branding of the organisation. Both sites are easy to update, fully mobile friendly and featuring absolutely fantastic photography supplied by the client.

In addition to the Brochure sites we also launched an online merchandise store for the Castle Gift Shop using Big Commerce and integrated the Castle's online ticket booking system directly inside the new website.

6 Yard Box

Client: The Football Nation, Edinburgh
Platform: Big Commerce
Visit: https://www.6yardbox.co.uk

The Six Yard Box is a new spin off from the hugely successful "Football Nation" (also a BFD client!).

Promising to redefine Football Fashion the site offers a wide variety of unique, top end merchandise for the discerning football fan. Operating from a gorgeous retail space in the very hip New Waverley arches in Edinburgh City Centre we designed this contemporary looking Big Commerce site to match.

Platform: Joomla
Visit: https://www.alastorariskmanagement.com

Alastora Security Risk Management is a privately owned, multi-disciplinary Security Risk Management service provider, based in Northern Ireland and also with operations in UAE, Lebanon and Iraq.

Flexifi

Client: Flexifi Ltd, Paisley
Platform: Joomla
Visit: http://www.flexifi.co.uk

Flexifi is a start-up business looking to offer super fast broadband solutions to multi-unit business and residential customers. Based in Paisley, we worked with the client to firstly create a brand identity for the fledgling company, before creating a striking contemporary design for their brochure website.

The end result is a bold website that epitomises an organisation operating in the technology sector.

Greystone

Client: The Greystone Group, Glasgow
Platform: Joomla
Visit: http://www.greystoneuk.com

Greystone Group provide a range of B2B services to clients across Scotland such as contract cleaning, maintenance and carbon reduction solutions.

We were commissioned to create a new web presence for the company to replace an existing tired and dated design back in 2015 and this was the result. Utilising strong images from our stock library to compliment those from our client we created a simple but stunningly effective brochure site built on Joomla 3.

 

Skipinnish

Client: Skipinnish Band
Platform: Joomla with Wee Commerce
Visit: https://www.skipinnish.co.uk

An existing client of ours for many years, we worked with the band to create this stunning new site which went live in December 2017.

Skipinnish had recently won Scots Trad Live Band of the Year award for 2017 and wanted to update their website to acknowledge this prestigious honour and also to make it easier for a growing fan base to purchase live tickets and band merchandise.

The result was this beautiful Joomla creation with our Wee Commerce plugin installed. Some amazing images colour this bold design whilst social media feeds auto-populate news sections thus making it a very low maintenance site for the band and their Publicity Team.

St. Mirren FC

Client: St.Mirren Football Club, Paisley
Platform: Joomla & Wee Commerce
Visit: https://www.stmirren.com

We worked with the football club in the latter part of 2016 to create a brand new responsive design for their website. Built on Joomla we created a bright and easy to update supporters portal which works superbly across mobile, tablet and desktop devices. The delivery of the first phase brochure site was soon followed up by the creation and integration of our Wee Commerce solution which has allowed the club to process several thousand orders for replica kit, books, dinners, community camps and corporate hospitality in the first year of it's operation.

The third phase, launched in December 2017 saw the club launch a new subscription based content service, "BuddieVision", again aimed at expanding the revenue potential of the club website.

We also migrated all staff from a legacy POP email implementation to a modern Office 365 powered messaging solution in 2016.

A great client to work with, and one we always enjoy visiting!

Glennoch

Client: Glennoch Properties Glencoe
Platform: Joomla & Planyo
Visit: https://www.glennochpropertiesglencoe.co.uk

This beautiful site, showcasing two stunning holiday rental properties in Glencoe, went live in February 2018.

In addition to being a brochure for the properties, our client was looking to take direct bookings where possible, eliminating the third party charges associated with the big booking portals like Tripadvisor.

The result was this full integration with Planyo, a hugely powerful cloud based booking engine. A cracking result and one very happy client!

Murphy Young

Client: Murphy Young Group, Glasgow
Platform: Joomla
Visit: https://www.murphy-young.com

We've worked with the Murphy Young Group almost since we went into business ourselves back in 2009.

Since then we've delivered a range of separate web initiatives for this dynamic and growing group of businesses.

In 2017 the company decided to standardise the branding message across all the separate business units and bring all the web sites up to date with a modern, responsive look.

We created a new design template and then rolled this out across all 6 sites in the group, each taking a highlight colour relating to that brand.

The end result was a consistent suite of sites that totally compliment each other and one very happy client!

Our online quote builder guides visitors through a simple wizard allowing them to submit all the relevant information required by MPS to generate a quote.

Using multiple pages and form logic we are able to minimise the amount of effort in completing the quote wizard making it quick and painless to submit and of course it works perfectly on mobile and tablet devices too.

Client: Johnstone Wheelers Cycling Club
Platform: Joomla & Invision Community
Visit: http://www.johnstone-wheelers.co.uk

Johnstone Wheelers are a long established and popular Cycling Club in Renfrewshire with a busy youth section separately branded as Johnstone Jets.

With an ageing website that the club were struggling to keep updated we worked with key committee members to simplify matters, creating a design that automatically populates itself with content from various feeds such as Strava, Twitter, Facebook and the Wheelers own popular discussion board "The Bunch".

"The Bunch" runs on Invision Community Software which we procured, installed and configured for the club and the latest version was branded in line with club colours as part of the project.

The new site and upgraded "Bunch" went live in November 2017.

 

Bssscotland

Client: Business and Surveying Solutions
Platform: Joomla
Visit: https://www.bssscotland.com

We started working with BSS Scotland in 2014, and with the first iteration of their site looking a bit jaded we were commissioned to create a brighter look and feel in February 2018.

The beauty of our Joomla sites is that they can be "re-themed" without starting again from scratch.

A few hours work was all in took to give the existing site a complete facelift and bring it up to date with all the latest responsive standards.

The Osteopaths

Client: The Osteopaths
Platform: Joomla
Visit: https://www.theosteopaths.org.uk

The site features a range of case studies each presented with a summary and photo gallery whilst latest news is delivered directly from our Facebook integration technology meaning the dynamic part of the site is actually updated directly from within the company social media platform.

Ryan Murrant

Client: Ryan Murrant Photography
Platform: Joomla
Visit: https://rm.photos

Our first project to feature a Premium niche domain name, rm.photos went live in the middle of December 2017.

  • The service is professional, friendly and swift with a strong focus on the quality of product produced. I think I have finally found a web designer who not only produces good work, but also cares about my business and helps me to move it along
    David Chalmers - Inspired CVs
  • Had a great experience with these guys from concept to launch. Whilst they didn't hang about getting things done, everything was done consultatively and thoroughly.

    They gave full control to me but used their professional knowledge and experience to advise what was best for my business. Would highly recommend these guys to any business or start up like mine. Thanks to Dave and his team for their help.

    Ryan Murrant - Owner, Ryan Murrant Photography
  • The big commerce platform integrated really well into google, if we add a new product it sometimes takes as little as a couple of weeks for it to show on the front page of google. We have been recommending BFD and Big Commerce to others and they have all been delighted with the response and quality shown by both the company and the platform.
    Mark Brooks - Managing Director, Wholesale Heaters
  • The service from Big Front Door has been fantastic. They kept us updated the whole way through and we just couldn't be happier with the end result. We'd highly recommend them!
    Victoria Sawers - Alvic Sliding Wardrobes
  • The service and responsiveness from the team at Big Front Door has been first class. The site has never been down in all the years we've been with the company and all my queries have been answered within 24 hours.
    Brian Wilson - Director, Wilson Smillie Consulting
  • Many thanks for the work you have done designing our new website. You took the time to understand what we wanted and then delivered on time with the minimum of fuss. Our head office is very impressed with our new site and can’t believe it went live so quickly.
