A proud moment meeting the Prime Minister
On Saturday 4th March we were privileged to attend the Maidenhead Chamber of Commerce Gala Dinner at the Institute of Marketing in Cookham, Maidenhead.  It was a fantastic evening and it was particularly great to see the magnificent table displays by House of Flowers and enjoy the hospitality from Goyals who were celebrating 50 years in business.

We'd heard rumours that Prime Minister Theresa May would be attending and it was superb that she was able to do so as there were lots of local business owners who have witnessed her meteoric rise first hand.  Not only did she deliver a very engaging speech about the opportunities for all business owners to grow both domestically and abroad, she was also on-hand to present the President's Cup to Reena Sandhu.  Reena works tirelessly to support the chamber and it was a fitting tribute in recognition of the work she puts in.

It was a great evening at a fantastic venue and we're already looking forward to next year and the first official Chamber Awards evening in September (plus many events between now and then).  If you're based in the Maidenhead and Windsor area, look at the Chamber as they run some incredible events and offer a whole range of benefits too.

Alamo Blinds , a local showroom of blinds, shutters, curtains and outdoor living, came to us a couple of years ago for a new brand and website for their business after they left the franchise they were in. At the time, we supplied them with a distinctive look and cohesive website which served all of their needs. Now we have been working together to update both the brand and website to give it a more contemporary and established look to go with their successful business.

The Logo

The previous Alamo Blinds logo (pictured below left) was a flowing typeface with a sans serif slogan font. It was friendly, approachable and tidy, but the client felt that he wanted it to be updated to something that can be more clearly read on their vans when they are driving around. The new logo (below right) uses a typeface with more distinct shapes to the letters, making it easier to decipher from further distances. We have kept a friendly and approachable aspect to it in the slogan font, which overall means you keep the same feeling from the old logo, but with added readability and modernity.

What better way to sell gorgeous products than on a beautiful, sleek and modern website?  

Home by Rachel  provides beautiful home interiors, stunning jewellery and a bespoke range of hand-poured luxury candles. Rachel came to us with a bland but functional website that didn't entice people off the home page, so in our redesign we ensured that the site looked bright, welcoming and interesting.

With large, good quality images and sliders the site began to look a lot more attractive, and the new clearer layout made the site easier to navigate. The intimacy of the brand is represented through the personal feel of the website, whilst the stunning imagery indicates the thought that has gone into each quality product.

At the end of October a new version of Google Chrome was released that clearly labels any website without an SSL Certificate as ‘non-secure’. This will be shown in the browser bar clearly to the online user.

This will effect a huge range of websites, particularly e-commerce sites or any that contain input fields, like password requests and contact forms. Studies indicate up to 84% of online shoppers will abandon their purchase once seeing that a site is not secure ( Source ). Having an SSL certificate gives your website the green padlock, reassuring customers that they are in a safe location to purchase goods and enter their details.

Not only do your customers prefer secure sites, but Google does too. With Google favouring secure sites, your search engine rankings are more likely improve and your conversion rates more likely to increase. It’s simple!
