Traverse Theatre (Umbraco)

Work completed at: D8

Traverse TheatreThe new Traverse Theatre website went live to coincide with the announcement of the theatre’s programme for the 2011 Edinburgh Festival Fringe. The client was delighted with the end result, saying “The design and functionality is superb, and the guidance and support we received during the site build process was exceptional.”

Cafe Gandolfi (Umbraco)

Work completed at: D8

Cafe GandolfiThe previous Cafe Gandolfi website was very difficult to maintain due to a poor CMS system and the website in general was very poorly built and designed with one of the main issues being that Google could not see any content past the homepage. Since the client had already spent money on a website that did not work for them, they had a very low budget for any redesign. The new site was designed and built using the Umbraco CMS system in less than a week in order to meet their budget limitations. The end result as you can see is a very informative website, full of interesting information about the Cafe Gandolfi chain of restaurants. Bookings via the website have more than doubled since going live and traffic to the website has seen a steady increase helped by the fact that all pages of the website can be easily found by Google.
