Some comments from Greame Oram, Five Lamps, Chief Executive.
Five Lamps really enjoys working with the team at Better. After putting out a specification to redesign our website and listening to pitches from various agencies, we decided to go with Better because of their enthusiasm, their fresh and innovative approach and their proven track record. They did not disappoint! Our new website looks fantastic – the team listened to what we wanted and helped us to achieve our mission to have a more professional looking and customer focussed website.
Throughout the project, we were kept up-to-date on progress through their ‘Basecamp’ system and the team were always on hand to support us (and continue to do so). The content management system that they use is really user-friendly and is a great help for us to keep the content on our site fresh.
Social media was not an up-most priority for us at the time of redesigning our website, but Better convinced us, and more importantly supported us to develop a digital footprint that has not only enhanced our website by making it more interactive (linking the videos of our staff and customers on our YouTube channel to our website) but also enabled us to get information out to our customers to promote the organisation – we now have facebook pages for Five Lamps and our Youthy.
Better were instrumental in coming up with the branding design of the website and we loved their ‘townscape’ design so much, that we have followed this branding style right thought our printed material. It seemed natural to ask Better to redesign our customer Welcome Packs. They have subsequently also helped us to design additional promotional material – exhibition stands, invitations and our 2009/10 Annual Report. All of which have been done to a high standard and often turned around to tight deadlines.
We would highly recommend Better and look forward to continuing to work with them in the future.
