Simone Russell Graphic Design

Posted on February 11, 2017

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!

Three new websites are on their way!

Posted on November 18, 2016

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. It is a busy time of year for most businesses, so it might be 2017Read More

Red Arrows over Peebles

Posted on June 22, 2016

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.

It’s been a while since I’ve added any news here but, as I’ve probably said in the past, no news means that I’m really busy working – which is a good thing! My main focus since Autumn last year has been a new website called borders.co.uk which covers all of the Scottish Borders, offering businesses and organisations the chance to list their details and Shout Out their latest news, promotions and events. These Shoutouts are automatically posted on the popularRead More

Website Support

Posted on May 5, 2015

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 Means Business – a new website

Posted on April 21, 2015

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.

What does your website say about you?

Posted on March 26, 2015

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

Leithen Business Services

Posted on March 23, 2015

Here is another website refresh to share with you. We have modernised the look and layout for Leithen Business Services, making sure that their new WordPress website was responsive and user friendly. We also did some work to improve search engine optimisation on the website (not that it’s needed as Leithen Business Services are pretty busy from word-of-mouth already!).  

March Street Holiday Flat

Posted on March 6, 2015

We’ve not exactly been practising what we preach over the past few weeks and haven’t been updating this News page regularly…. it’s good that we’re too busy I suppose! We do have a new WordPress website to share this week, March Street Holiday Flat in Peebles. You might recognise a bit of a theme here – the owners, Pauline and Danny, already run Pirn Road Holiday Apartment in Innerleithen, so wanted the websites to be similar in style and layout.Read More
