The Chopin Society UK
We redesigned The Chopin Society’s website for the bicentenary celebrations. The site provides information about forthcoming concerts and membership of the society, as well as a searchable archive of past concerts. It has become an important part of the society’s communication with its members.
Juliet Harmer, artist and illustrator
Artist Juliet Harmer wanted a site to exhibit the paintings she is offering for sale. The website also shows illustrations from her book Magic of Herbs and Flowers, her children’s calendar and her illuminated letters, all of which can be made into greetings cards.
Lark & Frogmouth Books
This is a new publishing venture. Lark & Frogmouth wanted a web page to promote its launch title The Nuremberg Enigma by Yves Bonavero, which came out in November 2016. We made the page quickly and initially hosted it on our Select Ideas site so that it would be found by search engines as soon as possible.
The family of LTC Rolt, writer and engineer, asked us to make a site devoted to his life and works that would promote his ideas and maintain interest in his books. The variety of Rolt’s expertise and enthusiasms enabled us to create an attractive website about this fascinating and influential man.
Elton Engineering Books
Julia Elton’s site has detailed descriptions of the many antiquarian books about engineering and technology that she is offering for sale. She stocks rare source books and manuscripts in all the major European languages, right across the range of disciplines, including building and architecture.
A B Charitable Trust
As a charitable Trust, ABCT try to keep their costs to a minimum so that they can give as much money as possible to the causes they support. So they asked Select Ideas for a minimalist website and we built just that.
Sarah Bryant, artist
We designed a site with a dark background to show off Sarah’s paintings. We organised her work into themes so as to make it easier for users to find what they particularly liked.
Susannah Ross, Editorial Training & Consultancy
We commissioned a graphic designer to design a visually interesting site for a business that is all about text. We drew up the structure, planned the navigation and wrote the content. The main pages were coded for us in WordPress, and we developed and added to them to complete the site.
Ivan Lapper, figurative and landscape artist
Ivan’s website has helped him sell his oil and watercolour paintings of places ranging from Venice to Northumberland, the Isle of Wight and Cornwall, and show his particular skill as a draughtsman.
Catharine Robinson, London singing teacher
Catharine needed a website to promote her singing teaching and voice coaching. She wanted potential pupils to speak to her on the telephone to discuss their needs, so there’s no email address or contact form on the site: just information about her career, her lessons and the successes of her pupils.
Susan Howe, entertaining speaker
Susan’s theme is History Minus the Boring Bits and her talks are hugely popular. Her website reflects her eventful life and her success as an entertaining speaker at all kinds of gatherings.
Waterside house on the Helford River, Cornwall
Bishop’s Quay is a family house on the Helford River, available to let for holidays. We included photos of the accommodation and the area around it, and had the home page translated into Dutch and German to attract holiday-makers from abroad.
Charles Fox, garden designer and artist
Charles Fox, garden designer and artist, wanted to display his paintings of gardens, flowers, animals and landscapes. We made him an online gallery to help him sell his paintings and attract commissions.
