Emu Bikes is a truly British brand, backed by Delbanco Meyer & Co with 80 years’ experience. With a retro town bike styling and a strong focus on quality, Emu's electric bikes are a cut above your typical off-the-shelf eBike.

Our Involvement

  • New modules created for previously unsupported eCommerce platform
  • Full SEO audit including the implementation of Schema.org structured data
  • New PPC campaigns created, returning increased traffic at a significantly reduced cost
  • A hosting solution that balanced response time with cost

End of Line Golf are one of the UK’s leading suppliers of quality discounted golf equipment. Selling equipment from some of the top brands in the golfing industry, they are a one stop shop for all golfing needs.

The Brief

End of Line Golf wanted a website that would:

  • Demonstrate their offerings clearly, using a naming convention that would generate, intrigue and also enhance their customer engagement with the products on offer
  • Be fully responsive and function across multiple devices
  • Ensure that the user journey was simple and easy to traverse

The Result

We worked with the End of Line Golf team to create a site that would truly engage. We decided to build this site using OpenCart, due to it being a powerful open-source eCommerce system that is designed to be feature rich and user-friendly, and was suitable for the client budget. We went about creating the website and ensured that it had high usability and that the customer journey to purchase goods was as simple as possible. The end result was a new website design that is pleasing to the eye, consistent, and relevant to what the company stands for.

Grown in Seconds Site

The American Hardwood Export Council (AHEC) is the leading international trade association for the U.S. hardwood industry, representing American hardwood exporters and the major American hardwood product trade associations. The American Hardwood Export Council promotes a greater understanding of the true environmental benefits of American hardwoods in design and manufacturing.

The Brief

  • Create a bespoke site from a pre-existing design provided by Nick Watts Design Ltd. 
  • Provide an immersive and engaging experience that brings to the forefront the highly sustainable credentials of American hardwood
  • Ensure that the site has low processing overheads and a small server footprint

The Result

We built this site on AngularJS in order to meet the small server footprint requirement, allowing for a large number of visitors without issue. The end result required multiple widgets to interact with each other, with a variety of web elements altering their display status in time with each other and negligible delay. The site is supported by online advertising placed within design and architectural publications, driving visitors from across Europe to the Grown in Seconds site.

The platform that we created uses statistics gathered by the US Forest Service, tracking the yearly growth and harvest rates of hardwood species and then calculating how quickly the wood used in these projects can be regrown. The final result is a memorable and slick website, offering an innovative information source to businesses and individuals across the world.

Voice Squad Website

Voice Squad represents some of the best voice-over artists in the UK, both in English and foreign languages. They have an extensive portfolio of high-calibre artists from all over the world who are UK-based. They provide voices for TV and radio commercials, corporate films, animation, audio-books, and many other forms of media.

The Brief

Zodiac Media were tasked with implementing a complete redesign of the site, including:

  • Adding shortlisting and filter-by-artist functionality
  • Implementing voice clip downloads and streaming
  • Migrating the contents of one of Voice Squad's sister sites
  • Mobile compatibility
  • Optimising the site to increase search engine rankings

The Result

In order to migrate the new content, we had to synchronise the new sitemaps, add appropriate redirects and avoid any duplicate contents. The site was developed in WordPress to allow instant updates from the Voice Squad team, allowing them to change content and images as and when required.

The website was also built using a "mobile first" approach and was optimised for multiple device resolutions, with a clean and elegant look that is simultaneously modern and enterprising.

Cambridge Protein Works Site

Cambridge Protein Works produce pure proteins for research professionals in industry and academia, saving their customers the considerable effort, time, and cost of protein expression and purification. Their website allows their customers to obtain the precise protein reagents that they require and was founded and managed by a team of structural biologists.

The Brief

Cambridge Protein Works approached us with a brief to:

  • Create a brand new store front that accurately reflects their brand
  • Provide an efficient communication platform for customers
  • Enable different editors to edit and add to the product catalogue

The Result

Our first task was to design and develop the whole functionality in Magento. We maintained a strong focus on the on-page UX (User eXperience), so that the interface and customer experience was intuitive and easy to use and that information was readily accessible. You can now easily purchase proteins and view detailed information about each of the products. The final result is a memorable and slick website, offering an extremely important service to labs and businesses across the world.

Zodiac Booking Website

Zodiac Media designed and built Zodiac Booking to take some of the industry standard features available to large tour operators and makes them accessible to smaller companies that otherwise would not be able to afford bespoke development.

The Brief

  • Provide cottage suppliers a platform for their customers to search, reserve, book, amend, and cancel their cottage and holiday bookings.
  • Provide a fully transactional booking engine integrating the Carlton TABS API
  • Optimised for mobile platforms

The Result

We implemented a feature-rich search engine and geo-location map search that could provide up-to-date availability and booking. A fully customisable content management system that allows even the least technical of people to manage their site with ease was designed from scratch using Symfony 2. The site is fully responsive and built from the ground up to look its best on every device.

Nabru Sofas Website Image

Nabru have over eleven years of experience in manufacturing and retailing self-assembly sofas. In that time they have sold over 150,000 products and have serviced more than 50,000 customers. Nabru manufacture all of their sofas in the UK at their headquarters in the Greater London area.

The Brief

Zodiac Media has been involved with Nabru for nearly two years. During this time we have been tasked with:

  • Undertaking a complete rebuild of the site’s frontend and a full backend code refactoring
  • Replacing their mobile site
  • Migrating all the legacy codebase
  • Optimising the site to increase search engine rankings
  • Optimising content so it appears correctly in Google Shopping results

The Result

Nabru wanted an online presence capable of handling whatever advances were thrown at it. As with all of our customers, we implemented all of our new changes in a test environment and then deployed the changes onto the live site without affecting the data in the live database or the customer experience. We built their new site using a "mobile-first" approach.  This meant that Nabru had a single website that could cater to multiple platforms, making it easier to maintain and update.

Nabru's diverse range of current and potential customers is always at the forefront of every decision. A very close relationship has been fostered through daily update emails and weekly meetings. This has allowed us to create as much transparency as possible, giving the client detailed knowledge about the status of the project at all times. We have had a great working relationship with the Nabru for many years, and have developed their website as they have changed and developed as an organisation.
