While it may seem like yesterday that you launched your shiny new website, technology moves quickly and it is important to think about how your website works even if you are still happy with how it looks. Speed, responsiveness and visitor numbers Have you taken an objective look at your website recently? Have you checked your website on your mobile and on a tablet? When did you last run a speed test? How are those visitor bounce rates? Five keyRead More→

For Signature Hair by Kirstie‘s new website I worked with Simone Russell, a local graphic designer, who was creating new artwork for Kirstie. It was great to work directly with a graphic designer and have Simone’s expert input for the website design and build. Kirstie now has a great platform to showcase her work and she was very happy with the results: “I’ve recently been working with Simone Russell – Graphic Design & Illustration to create some new business artwork.Read More→
We can’t take credit for any of the design on this website, the very talented graphic designer Simone Russell deserves all of that! Web Leithen helped out with all the behind-the-scenes set up, installing WordPress and plugins and then setting up a basic layout for Simone to get started with. Look out for more collaboration with Simone over the next few months!
That’s the third of our latest websites handed over to the client, ready for them to do the hard bit – deciding what content to include! We did our bit – agreed the requirements, created the layout and added draft pages so now it’s over to the experts to talk about what they want to offer their customers and showcase their best products and services.

Here’s the latest update from one of our clients, the Alec Lucas Memorial Trust, as eight years of fundraising was brought to an emotional close by a magnificent fly over by the Red Arrows. Crowds gathered all over Peebles to mark the occasion and at exactly 6:30 p.m. the Red Arrows, including Peebles pilot Stewart Campbell, flew down the Tweed Valley. If you missed it, there’s a link to a video on their website.
As easy as WordPress is to use, some people find it easier to use Web Leithen to update their website content so that they can focus on other things – in this case, fundraising. I’ve just added a news article with a slideshow of photographs to the Alec Lucas Memorial Trust website along with a few other changes including adding a link to the charity’s new Facebook page. The Alec Lucas Memorial Trust has raised an amazing amount of moneyRead More→
Selkirk BIDs are our latest client. They are a project group supporting two proposed business improvement districts in Selkirk. Also known as Selkirk Means Business they required a website to share information and the latest news about their project. We adapted their logo to make a website banner, using the colours from this logo throughout the website to create a bright and positive feel.
Looking again at our most recent website project reminded us how important it is for everyone to stop and think about their image. Which qualities do you aim to demonstrate to those customers that you meet in person? Perhaps it is important for you to appear professional, well-organised, knowledgeable and reliable? Or perhaps your priority is to highlight your creativity or originality, to stand out from your competitors? If your first contact with potential customers is not in person butRead More→
