New Website For Local Business Andrew Smith Funeral Services
Andrew Smith Funeral Services is Macclesfield’s only independent, family-owned and run funeral directors. They came to us looking for a design overhaul on their current, none-mobile responsive website. It’s not everyday you work with a funeral directors, so there was a bit of a learning curve about this sector and the unique service Andrew Smith and his team provide. We are happy to say Andrew and his team are very pleased with the results!
The new website was built using the WordPress platform. It is fully responsive, optimised for mobile, user-friendly and easy to manage; after only a few hours training the team at Andrew Smith’s are confident in making updates themselves. We worked closely with Andrew to understand his business so that the styling, messages and content properly reflected their ethos - writing about funerals can be a delicate subject and we wanted to be sure that we struck the right balance between practicality and compassion. It was important to emphasise that they are a local, independent business who are focussed on providing a genuine and caring service to their community at the highest level.
The site uses beautiful high quality imagery across all pages, making it visually stunning. For this we used some existing imagery of the business premises and of the beautiful countryside we have here in Macclesfield. We also undertook a photo shoot, staging a mock funeral procession so that we could give a realistic idea of the service Andrew Smith’s team provide, but without infringing upon the family of a real funeral service.
Working with Andrew and his team has been an absolute pleasure; they are a dedicated, highly professional team who are passionate about working with the local business community and they wanted their new website to reflect this. We hope you will agree that we have achieved all this and more!
Since launching the new website, we are now working with Andrew Smith Funeral Services on a number of new projects including brochures, leaflets, adverts and a video…watch this space!
