The importance of great testimonials

SEO – a means to what end?

So, you’ve got a website with some form of content management. You are forever tinkering with it – adding a page here, modifying some copy there. All of this is great, particularly from a search engine optimisation point of view. Keeping things fresh is one of the best things you can do.

Maybe you’ve spent a few hundred quid (or more) on improving backlinks to your website – you’ve worked feverishly on facebook, and twitter to try and put your website on the map.

Futures Education Services

MR Builders (Mr Buildit)

Owner, Mark Robinson approached us to rebrand his growing Stourbridge building company, MR Builders. We were tasked with creating a new logo for the business, graphics for the van, and the creation of a new website at www.mrbuildit.co.uk to showcase the company’s work. It was important that the website could grow with the business and had the facility to add further case studies, so WordPress was used as the CMS – offering an easy to use interface for Mark to keep the website updated.

Business logo design

We wanted to create a clean, strong image for Mark, without the usual rooftop shapes and  gimmicks. Here is the final logo we arrived at:
