Portfolio Project 6
Starting From a Blank Canvas
I advised one of England’s leading car supermarkets (Carcraft) with some of their most important pages, including the search results page and product detail page. Using analytics, best practise and competitor research to shape the design, some of the changes made a marked improvement in conversion with the Head of Marketing suggesting it was a ‘brilliant result’.
Having done previous research into both product and search result pages I could take this knowledge and apply it to the Carcraft site, whilst also considering their competitors strategies.
Initial feedback was that the conversion had increased from 5.81% to 6.02% on the initial designs given.

I contacted Paul via a search from google after a Freelancer had managed to damage part of my website. It was a Saturday afternoon, I was desperate for it to be sorted straight away. Most of my previous attempts to find freelancers, I found that they didn’t work at the weekend and were unable to help but Paul took my call and said no problem. What was impressive was that although I could tell he was ‘out and about’ (as most of us are at the weekend) he went straight back to his office to discuss the problem with me further. He is clearly an enthusiastic self starter and competent in all areas of IT. Paul had to enter both my site and my hosting control panel and make sense of what had happened. Needless to say 3 hours later the problem was resolved and my site was back up and running straight away. His rates were reasonable and I am happy to have my contact details at the end of this review as a referral for his business. I will definitely be using him again.

When I first decided that I needed a website I had little idea what I was getting into. I quickly realised that putting together a website was a much more complicated process than I had ever imagined. Creatika came to my rescue; I was guided through the many complex decisions needed to build a multi page interactive website from the choice of colours through to how to improve my Google rankings. The website is now ranked number one in the world for several key search criteria and I have received dozens of compliments from the many people who have used the website. I have been very impressed at the service offered by Creatika and thanks to the great design work I am now generating an income from marketing on the website due its popularity. Thank you for everything!!!!!

If you’re looking for a creative, hard working, efficient and innovative company to bring you a fantastic, reliable website, look no further than Creatika. Having worked with Paul for almost 11 years he is one of the most professional and competent web designers I have ever worked with. Paul's knowledge of forum software such as PHPBB is exceptional, as are his HTML and CSS skills. Paul has worked hard at keeping our customer support forum up to date, backed up and secure. Paul has also written custom scripts which have brought advanced functionality to our customer support forum, helped us move servers twice and in September 2011 Paul successfully integrated a custom bespoke design into our customer support forum. I would happily recommend Paul to anyone.

Pick A Locksmith wanted to give their existing website a facelift and make it look more modern and be more user friendly. The main aim of the redesign was to make the website responsive, generate more enquiries and make it easier for users to search for prices.
A strong identity and design concept was required for a VoIP support forum. Retina display ready and optimized for mobile devices, with a beautiful flat yet clean design, impressive set of features and power to customize every aspect of its layout and appearance.
Planning to redesign your website or launching a new one? It is never good to leave a blank page for your visitors to guess what’s there on your website. An under construction page will help maintain your web presence and build anticipation while you work on your site.
