The Start of a New Life…

January 24, 2010

Sunday afternoon finds us beavering away in the Life offices, putting finishing touches to the new website, customising the blog, setting up a new WeAreLife twitter account – and all the time, maintaining the current website – and everything associated with it.

The new signage will hopefully be in situ over the next couple of days and the exterior of the offices spruced up to showcase the new branding. It’s definitely a case of all change – even the cups are being replaced to complement the new colour scheme. Attention to detail at all times!

Last week was a fantastically busy one for us, with a lot of new projects forming in the pipeline – revamping the website for an art gallery, an e-commerce site for a textile designer, a Tapas restaurant website and a photography commission, a website for a climbing school and the creation of an online shop for a client who runs an award winning hair salon. We also had a fantastic meeting with a photographer who we discovered via Twitter – although he states he’s an “amateur”, his work blew us away and we’re delighted that he’s coming on board with us.

Didsbury Life, our sister site, goes from strength to strength as businesses are really starting to understand the potential that such a site can offer. Whilst there are many sites out there offering promotional opportunities, we maintain that you get what you pay for. So – you pay nothing, you generally don’t get a great deal. That’s probably OK for some businesses who are fairly happy to accept mediocrity, but thankfully most who work with us want a lot more than that!

Ideas are also being mulled over for the next WestFest, a celebration of everything that is wonderfully independent in West Didsbury. With two festivals now under our belts, we’ll be working a lot smarter this time to ensure that our aim is once again achieved – to showcase west Didsbury and keep trade and money within our local economy. To get a flavour of WestFest, check out the film made by Jess Shaughnessy, the film maker for Life.
