Coolings Green & Pleasant is a Garden Centre and retailer based in Kent offering fresh food, fresh ideas, and fresh air! Novamedia created their website in 2015, emphasising the four areas in which they specialise – nature, food, shopping and plants.
These four areas form the ‘hub’ of the website, containing links to events, offers and blog posts written by staff. This is further enhanced with photographs taken on site (some of which were shot by Novamedia), artwork provided by another agency and bespoke fonts which we selected from Google fonts to complement the centre’s brand.
As is standard with all of Novamedia’s websites, this site was designed to be fully responsive from the outset, in this case using Zurb’s flexible Foundation framework as a base. This means the site works just as well on small mobile devices as it does on large desktop screens as well as everything else in between. The website utilises WordPress as its CMS, allowing staff at Coolings Green & Pleasant to easily add updates.
What a joy to work with someone who can explain the mysteries of the internet and social media to a complete technophobe in a clear, concise and meaningful way! Throughout the whole design and build process Dave, Rob and Michael were wonderfully patient and understanding, explaining everything with great clarity to ensure we were comfortable with each step. The end result is a fabulous new website that we’re really proud of, and confident we can use to its best effect going forward. I cannot recommend Novamedia highly enough for their consummate professionalism coupled with a friendly and approachable manner. Absolutely first-class!
