We’re used to managing multiple projects simultaneously here at NB, but it is not often we launch seven client websites in the space of a week, as we did at the start of October.
Two of the new sites are for clients in London, with another being in Orkney. These projects highlight our ability to deliver work far beyond our Shetland and Edinburgh bases.
Arrow Media provide factual programmes for high-profile clients including the BBC, Channel 4 and CNN. Their work includes BAFTA and RTS-winning Live from Space for Channel 4 and National Geographic and the Investigation Discovery hit TV series See No Evil and American Monster. We were commissioned via our London office to build them a new website, clearly conveying the scope of content they create for TV and film.
Meanwhile, Bonn Agreement is a body that brings together 10 governments within the European Union to deal with the pollution of the North Sea by oil and other harmful substances. We’ve worked with them for a number of years and have a strong working relationship. They asked us to refresh and redevelop their website, giving it a cleaner, more contemporary look and feel.
In Orkney, we’ve been continuing our client relationship with Destination Orkney on the development of their main tourism portal, Orkney.com. Recent work has involved building an interactive journey planner, allowing visitors to plan their route, time and mode of transport to Orkney.
Back home in Shetland, we’ve been busy working with the Shetland Tourism Association on the launch of their website. The remit was to devise an online space where association members could connect and work together to develop tourism in the islands.
As well as showcase the members’ organisations in a visually appealing way, a key part of the development project was to create a members’ only area. This password-protected area will allow them to upload and share resources and ideas, and is due to go live in November.
Another destination marketing project we’ve been involved with is designing and building a website for the Community Development Company of Nesting. This is a local initiative aimed at improving the amenities and facilities in the community of Nesting and surrounding areas. We created a corporate identity for the company and a visually-appealing website to attract new residents and visitors.
We’ve also proudly supported and sponsored the development of a new website for the mental health charity Mind Your Head. We helped to give the charity a brand refresh and designed a bright, approachable website, which includes a PayPal functionality so people can easily make online donations.
Finally, we launched a new website for The String, one of Shetland’s leading restaurants. The requirements for this web design project were much simpler than for some of the projects already mentioned, but the client still required a top quality presence with a professional polish, which they can now easily update themselves with the latest menus and food imagery.
Commenting on the latest launches at NB Communication, Managing Director David Nicol said:
“We've worked hard for a long time to design our agency so that we can provide an equally high standard of service to every client, regardless of location.
“Of course, it is great to meet clients face-to-face – and that's a key feature of our work with clients in Shetland, Orkney and Edinburgh. But we are highly skilled at delivering our services remotely to clients located far from our offices.
“The range and quality of sites we've launched this month is a testament to the NB team's ability to work with clients anywhere in the country, and I'm proud to see these latest pieces of work go live.”
