What We’ve Been Doing…

November 17, 2011

Days, weeks and months seem to rush by in a blur of project activity and often jobs are completed – printed, uploaded, delivered – and we’ve not even had the time to let anyone know. We’re a really small agency, but think we have the capability of delivering end results that are extremely unique, often quirky and always individual to the client. It’s also really lovely that many of our clients actually end up becoming friends. A real bonus 🙂

So, we thought we’d do a round up of some recent projects – some big, some small – but all of which have been thoroughly enjoyable, and have made being at work, not like being at work at all! Another bonus.

This site was actually uploaded some time ago, but we’ve continued to work with Ben, designing his table menus, deli boards and catering menus. Ben wanted a site he could update himself – and that’s we built for him. He can upload his daily specials, blog and change his outside catering menus. Customers can do online ordering too via the customised catering ordering form –

We don’t just do websites – our design design team can turn their hands to whatever our clients want. Within reason 🙂 The guys at Frankie’s Fish bar, West Didsbury wanted their big menu board updating, as well as table menus, promotional posters and banners and loyalty cards. Job done!

We’ve also done a huge selection of business cards – some as part of a bigger rebranding or new project, some as stand alone jobs. They can be as elaborate or as simple and classic as the client wants. And if only takes half an hour to design, that’s what you’ll be charged…

Whilst we don’t do in-house printing, we can recommend printing companies and we are delighted that we have built up an excellent relationship with an Oldham based printing company – in fact, many of our clients now liaise directly with Ben as there are no hidden costs. We don’t add costs on and we don’t take a cut. It’s a happy relationship all round.

We love photography, but we’re not photographers. Sure, my trusty Canon can capture what I think is a good image, and Instagram can often save the day, but when it comes to websites, we turn to the professionals – and in Steve and Mark, who are our photographers of choice, we’ve discovered two gems. You’ll be seeing some of Steve’s work coming up on two websites we’re currently working on…

We’re also not SEO experts, but do know someone who is. So, if optimisation is key, we refer clients to our SEO guru. It’s taken us a long time to cut through the SEO gunk, but we know we’ve found a diamond in this one…

We love to communicate and understand that subtle networking is key to building long and meaningful relationships so we encourage our clients to get tweeting. We create and develop Twitter accounts, branding them so that there is consistency with the business brand. Then we hand them over to the owner – because no-one can communicate about your business like yourself… Twitter accounts we’ve branded include MacleodBradley, Pinchjos, 360 Personal Training, Azzurro, Thinking Space and Milly Mog


The future is very exciting for us here at WeAreLife – not only are we developing and growing our Life sites, but we’ve been working on some cracking websites recently. We’ve just put The Natural Wedding Company website live, and pretty soon we’ll also be launching the websites for The White Closet, The Rose Garden, Frog Furniture, 24 Events and Shout Out Logos. New projects in the pipeline include a stained glass company, a Mancunian vegetarian institution, a unique solution to university accommodation, and website revamps for two long-standing clients, an award winning florist and a TV production company.

So, if you fancy a bit of a re-design, by a company who like to get to know you, and build relationships (not just websites), get in touch.

Helen, Pete & Chris
