The Brief

We originally built the first incarnation of Sarah's Accent Coaching site in 2016. With her credibility firmly established and many more courses available, Sarah asked us to redesign and develop her site to make it clear what her various offerings are.

The Strategy

We redesigned the Courses landing page and individual Course sales pages to make it simpler to book each course. Using a third party plugin we also enabled hide/show elements based on date. This means Sarah can schedule all her courses in advance and enable the booking dates to show at specific times/dates for the relevant course. This is a huge time-saver for planning future courses.

The Results

Redesigned Course logos, Coaching logos and updated modern fonts all work together to create a more professional look and feel, as well as making navigation for clients easier. Since relaunch sales for the various courses have exploded, subscribers are up 200% and the free ebook optin is converting at over 6%.

"You are AMAZING! Thank you so much, it looks really good and I LOVE the new courses pages."

The Brief

The original website was built in 2007 using iWeb. With multiple photo galleries but only tiny thumbs to work with we suggested a complete redesign to modernise the brand, optimise across all devices and simplify the imagery to reduce page load speeds.

The Strategy

We rebranded with a new logo, modern yet elegant header fonts and classy gallery styling. We chose a selection of images to showcase the best New Zealand has to offer, and included videography as part of the About section. This helps to demonstrate the variety of locations available and the final result of the production.

The Results

By switching to what is essentially a one-page website this business card style format does exactly what is required, showcasing locations, work experience and making it easy for production companies to get in touch.

"Wow! The site looks great! I like how you made it much simpler yet all the relevant information is there. Awesome job!"

The Brief

Build and develop a brand new website for a new venture. Branding, Logo design, imagery, icons and typography were all required to be sourced.

The Strategy

Fun, friendly and playful was the inspiration for the overarching theme in this design. Colourful typography, fun imagery and simple navigation play a key part in bringing this vision to life.

The Results

With only a limited number of places available at this pre-school we're delighted to report Dennis and Kumiko's roll is fully booked, with a waiting list of applicants.

"We absolutely love our new Home Child Care website designed by Amy. The site is so bright and cheery with a clear, fresh look that our customers love. As with our previous website it was a pleasure working with Amy. Even in my most stressful moments when I was unsuccessfully trying to update some feature on the website, she calmly instructed me how to do it with one of her wonderful "how-to" videos. I could not recommend Wicked Website Designers more."

The Brief

Gerry's website was in need of a redesign to modernise the look and feel, showcase the musical band options and events they have played. Gerry's only request was a 'dark' website. We love it when clients give us free-rein to be creative with their content!

The Strategy

New hierarchy and menu structure with a Hire Us button and clear contact information helps visitors navigate to what they need easily. This is a video-heavy website, so to keep visitors on-site we created branded video overlay images that show in a pop-up modal window. Fast page speeds, optimised on-page and image SEO, and rewritten meta SEO for search all contribute to a well optimised website across all devices.

The Results

During the recent pandemic lockdown Gerry decided the timing was ideal to revamp his site. Since relaunch bookings are picking up and his clients are reporting the site is much easier to use now.

"The new site looks amazing, WOW! Just sending you some appreciation. Thank you, thank you!"

Opotiki Society for the Care of Animals Inc.

The Brief

When the local SPCA closed it’s doors Kathleen Young took matters into her hands and set up OSCA, Opotiki Society for the Care of Animals Inc. This Charitable organisation services most of the East Coast region for unwanted and stray felines in our community. As a huge cat lover I was inspired by her commitment and offered a website and hosting as my contribution to a cause close to my heart.

The Strategy

We created a professional business website with clear and easy navigation, concise sections showcasing OSCA’s services and a footer clearly showing their business information.

The Results

The website has built-in functionality to enable future online donations and annual memberships once payment processors are created. A well SEO’d website with first page rankings in search engines.

"Thank you for your patience. I appreciate your time on the website, it's looking really good!"

The Brief

As a technophobe Angela Valentine needed a simple website to promote her books and artwork to a global audience. A professional but low maintenance website was in order.

The Strategy

We created a masonry gallery section using CSS, with artworks opening in a lightbox. You can read a Chapter extract set in an iPad device, a custom blog page layout and custom post layout with sidebar.

The Results

Elegant fonts and styling on buttons and backgrounds keeps the focus on the books and beautiful artwork. An elegant solution for a self-publishing author to showcase their works and promote sales.

Studio Urban Wax

The Brief

Studio Urban Wax hired us to redesign their website to represent the experts that Studio Urban Wax are, and to grow their current and future client base. Growing their email list and membership was also a key focus.

The Strategy

We created pricing tables on each of the treatment pages, as the treatments come in various structures. We created an email optin modal pop-up via button or click which is unobtrusive and easy to configure.

Professional stock photography helps to visually showcase the wide variety of services that Studio Urban Wax offer.

The Results

The goal was to take the existing website information and convert it into simple and clear sections on the homepage, so visitors knew what services are available and exactly what to do. Strong calls-to-action and information presented in a straight-forward and clear manner were all key to this redesign.

"Just wanted to shoot you a quick note passing on all the kudos we’ve been receiving on our new website. Not only are clients loving the look and feel but I’ve had several SEO people comment on how clean it is in the back end. Thanks for all your hard work!"

The Brief

Dennis chose us to redesign his existing Shopify website. Whilst Shopify worked fine, Dennis wanted to have more flexibility and control over the site as they grew.

The Strategy

Selling the product involved installing the #1 plugin WooCommerce. We customised all the WooCommerce pages, including the Shop, Cart and Checkout. We included PayPal and Stripe payment processors.

To manage the shipping rates we opted for a premium Table Rates plugin to easily configure a variety of shipping rates depending on the cart contents.

We also installed a premium subscriptions plugin enabling Dennis to offer 3 or 6 month recurring subscriptions for their products.

The Results

Great styling and optimised page layouts combine to showcase Dennis and Kumiko’s journey to bring their award winning IL DIVINO Olive Oil to the US market.

"I could go on and on about so many positive details associated with our new website coming to fruition, but I will simply say that each step in development and the final product greatly exceeded our expectation. We love our new website!"
