Link Juice App is our own creation. It's an iPhone app specifically built for search engine specialists. The app enables SEOers to check the competitiveness of their domain (or their competitors') from their iPhone or iTouch.
Now, anyone with an interest in SEO can use their iPhone to analyse the domain authority, inbound links, linking domains, anchor text, etc. of any domain, sub-domain or page on the web.
Of course every great iPhone app needs a website to promote it. This is our creation for the Link Juice App we've built for the SEO community.
As the site is targeted to those with a higher level of "geek", we've kept an eye on simplicity, performance and usability. Likely to receive its fair percentage of traffic from handheld devices, a very limit width to the design makes life easier for the viewer.
The design of the Link Juice App site brings together the garish icon/logo (for App Store stand out) and the simple and stylish design of the app itself.
Ignite Fly and ITCafe™ have worked together on a number of different projects over the years. They came to us for the design and build of their website under of the pretence of "you know what we like!". Fortunately we did.
The design brief we extracted required a professional and not overly complicated presentation for this global IT development company. Not too "corporate", but not "agency-like".
As with the majority of our client websites, the ITCafeLtd.com site includes a simple to use content management system which enables ITCafe to update their own site whenever they feel like it.
Another of our own concepts, the Send Flowers App for the iPhone does exactly what it says on the tin - it allows you to order and send flowers from your phone!
It's a simple concept but the world of mobile phone applications is still extremely young in the grand scheme of things. But we can't believe nobody has built this one yet.
The app itself provides the customer with a simple list of bouquets which they can filter by price, colour theme and type of flower - and you can buy online too.
The Send Flowers App is due to launch in the App Store (subject to approval from Apple) before the end of May 2010.
A promotional website designed and built by ourselves to support our own Send Flowers iPhone application.
The interface gives us a chance to bring an "artistic over function" approach to the design (with there being little functionality!). It manages to show off the product - the Send Flowers App - as well as the end goal for the customer - flower delivery - whilst providing a clear call to action.
Neos Capital are an environmentally focused, start up investment outfit.
They came to us with a website design brief for the Neos Capital website with our aim set on expressing professionalism and trustworthy financial credentials but also provide a touch of the "eco" principle through the interface.
The Neos Capital website is built on an easy to use content management system so that the client is now in complete control of their own website content - a very important feature for a nibble startup company.
MoneySavingExpert.com - the website for TV personality and financial guru, Martin Lewis - carries a variety of helpful personal finance tools designed to help consumers save their hard earned pennies.
They asked us to convert one of these tools into a handy iPhone application for their thrifty followers. The result is the Demotivator application for the iPhone (due to launch before June 2010).
They say you should have at least one project on the go which is of personal interest. It helps you to overcome hurdles instead of finding work arounds.
HelmetFun.com is that project for Ignite Fly (and "work in progress").
As keen bikers (on tarmac as much as in the mud), we conceived the Helmet Fun to save bikers time spent online trawling through poorly designed sites.
Comparing track day events, finding your nearest track and looking up specifications for makes and models of bike all fall into this category.
This client provides a luxury shoe brand - Miranda Weston Shoes - through offline and online channels. We were approached to work on the website design and build, an eCommerce tool and stock management system.
Built on the WordPress platform, the Miranda Weston solution gives the client (of average technical ability) complete control on all aspects of their own website and admin systems.
The Miranda Weston Shoes website is in the final stages of testing and is due to launch in May 2010.
This is another of our own projects and one thing is for sure, it's an infectious little number!
TellyApp taps into those nostalgic moments when people start to reminisce over classic TV theme tunes and adverts. Whenever we've tested this one in public, we can't help but draw a crowd.
We're currently working on some copyright issues with the app approval team at Apple but TellyApp will be launched very shortly.
Designed and built to support the TellyApp iphone application, this little website is another example of how quickly and easily we can turn a basic website out.
Running off the WordPress and Thesis framework means a healthy level of SEO value is included from the start, the website build is swift and yet changes are easy due to the flexibility of the backend.
The guys at Yianis (a major property investment and development company) approached us to design and build a website to help them promote office space in Southend-On-Sea.
The design brief entailed making Southend and a 1960's office block look appealing. A tough gig.
The solution is the Thamesgate House website. This site is now controlled by the client who is able to change all content, pages and imagery across their site.
iPhone application designers and developers are few and far between at the moment.
Unfortunately, this means most agencies and freelancers are charging through the roof even just for concepts, plans and designs.
We've worked on a number of concepts for mobile phone applications for the All Filed team, providing them with mock designs, advice and ideas ...without charging silly money.
