FRC International supports the operation and training of Fast Response Craft personnel. The FRC team approached us to design and develop a number of information websites with a similar layout so that they may stay corporate within different areas of their business. All website content needed to be updateable using a Content Management System - and this particular website (their core website) allows for a lot of customisation. It is an extremely bespoke build and one that the team are embracing.
FRC International supports the operation and training of Fast Response Craft personnel. The FRC team approached us to design and develop an information website for a one day seminar they are holding at The Lifeboat College, Poole. All website content needed to be updateable using a Content Management System. The team then requested the design, development and sending out of emailers to specific personnel they wished to market the seminar to. With a very quick turn around FRC has its first website within a week of contacting Blue Ride Media.
The Shock Mitigation Directory is an online directory specialising in RIBs and High Speed Craft. We were to create a directory website for the client who is a Subject Matter Expert, specialising in shock mitigation strategies. The website's usability is vitally important as it is a global directory - used by people where English is not their first language. The page layouts stay consistent for ease of use. With an ongoing successful Email Marketing Campaign the Directory is gaining worldwide interest.
For over 35 years Corporate Clothing Solutions has been manufacturing and supplying work wear to customers ranging from the Hospitality to the Health Service industry.

Gilly Print is a well established label, printer and handheld coder company based in Christchurch, Dorset and Lymington, Hampshire. Their main website sees a lot of traffic but the client felt that by choosing a specific product such as the handheld batch coder, creating a microsite may help receive more direct enquiries about this product. We researched relevant domain names and bought six that people potentially searched for on Google - a great Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) tip.
Gilly Printers were looking to create a microsite with a built in portfolio to aim their cosmetic label range specifically to cosmetic companies. The strong colours were chosen by the clients for an impactful and memorable website. The simple three page website makes use of the top header image scrolling through portfolio pieces with descriptions as click-throughs from each label, allowing the most important information to be high up the page, good for usability.
We designed an information rich website with specific images to reflect the various industries affected by the EC Vibration Directive that came into force in 2010. The client also needed downloadable translations into 20 languages. Within 8 weeks of launch our Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) work took this website, and associated microsites, to Number 1 on Google in all relevant searches - above the EUs own websites!
Victor Graphics is an established Bournemouth and Dorset based Graphic Design Agency. We technically developed their online portfolio from designs initiated by ourselves, which were later finalised in-house. The portfolio is simple, using a large viewing area to scroll through work - which speaks for itself. The design was based around the company's existing branding and colour scheme, making use of three pages of content as a secondary element to the main portfolio viewer.
CCS HiVis have been established for over 30 years, based in Hampshire, supplying high visibility clothing to the professional sector. When CCS HiVis approached us we realised their need for an e-commerce website. The CCS HiVis website is an online shop microsite - selling only 6 products, making the client's journey through the website much quicker. The option for personalisation of products is achieved through a simple to use customising section available on every product page.
Venator House is a modern office block based in the heart of Bournemouth. The one page website is to market the rooms in the building to let as office space. The owner of the building will direct people to the site who will be interested in the property. The micro site needed images and floor plans, a Google map and link plus written content for the building to be fully appreciated by potential buyers. The one page website was an affordable solution for getting an online presence quickly and efficiently.
Nurse Care Uniforms, based in Hampshire is an officially selected supplier of uniforms to the NHS. The previous microsite website made use of a bottle green colour scheme that darkened the website - so an obvious starting point was the colour palette. We went through a branding exercise with NCU, with the intention of making the overall NCU identity more medical. The idea of the website is for people to view materials and style of uniform in a catalogue format, leading to a 'Call to Action' by phoning or emailing directly through the website.
