Quiet Us Isn't A Bad Thing...

Sean White - Friday, March 21, 2014

So it's been quite a while since we last posted anything here on the blog - and that's for good reason!

 

We've been busy!

 

Much the same with our social pages too; we didn't go quiet because we had nothing to say, or for any other reason than the new year brought in some new business for us. We've been working hard on clients' websites so much so that we haven't had the chance to update our own until now, and that's only because we're awaiting contracts to sign on for our latest project!

 

Busy, busy, busy!

 

We've given this site (our site) a "lick and a promise" as they say and updated our portfolio to show you what we've been up to lately, including a pretty epic-looking website for The Zedhead Games Company and a little sneak-peek at what we'll be up to for the next few weeks as well. We also noticed some information was incorrect and, indeed, wasn't displaying correctly across all 3 versions of the site, so we've had a little look and as far as we can tell, everything's right now!

 

So we hope those of you still checking-in on this site enjoy the update and we'll get back to you soon with more news!

Zedhead Games and SNIC

Sean White - Tuesday, February 04, 2014

Happy New Year everyone!

We hope you enjoyed the holiday season?

Just a little bit of news to say we've recently completed work on logos for both the 2015 School Nurse International Conference and independent games studio, Zedhead Games!

All of this work will soon be added to our portfolio for your eyes to enjoy!

 

Until then though...

The 12 Days of CWL-ness

Sean White - Monday, December 02, 2013

Well it's that time again everybody!

It's the beginning of December, which means it's finally time to get festive! So dust off your pine trees and deck your halls, put your vacuums away 'cos you know there'll be tinsel everywhere no matter how many times you go over the carpet, and don those red velvet hats - because Christmas is finally on its' way!

 

Yes, it's that one special time of year where no matter what we believe in and no matter how ruddy cold it gets, we all have an excuse to be happy; happy for each other, happy for our accomplishments, happy for our future, happy for society's progression, happy in general. 'Tis the season for spreading joy.

And it's because it is the season that we've decked out the desktop version of our website with a whole new festive look and feel. We've given our logo a little red Santa hat and we've made it snow as you scroll the pages, and there's even a pile of snow at the bottom where it all gathers. Just one of a few ways in which we're spreading the cheer this season. But it won't be here for long, so enjoy the CWL festive-ness while it lasts!

 

Note how the falling snow flows in different directions and at different speeds? That's a new scroll effects feature which all the top designers are now using on websites for their clients; anything can scroll these days - and there's other possibilities too, such as opacity changes, animations and more. What better way to demonstrate these new possibilities than with falling snow on our new Christmassy site? Feeling inspired? Get in touch with us today and see what we can make scroll for you on your next website project!

 

Why wouldn't you get in touch with us when we're currently running a promotion called the 12 Days of CWL-ness! Technically it's only 10 days of offers, since the 1st of December was a Sunday (and nobody likes to work Sundays!) and today's special was the new-look website, but still, 10 days of special offers from CWL Media? Can't argue with that! Why not see what the next 10 days have in store for you and give yourself an extra Christmas treat to get your next project started?

 

You'll have to be quick though - each offer only lasts for 24 hours! As long as you get in touch and quote the discount code for each offer, we'll apply the discount or offer to your next invoice from us. Now, how do you find out about the discounts during the 12 Days of CWL-ness? Well that's easy! All you need to do is follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook. We will ONLY be sharing these offers with our social media fans, so if you're not liking or following us yet, why not? Click those buttons! - and while you're at it, share our pages with your friends, family and colleagues and spread the cheer! Afterall, 'tis the season!

 

Now, we're aware not everyone celebrates Christmas at this time of year, but we'd still like to spread a little holiday cheer, whatever your religion. So don't feel left out - these offers apply to everyone (so long as you're in a joyful mood)!

 

But if you're not in the mood for 12 Days of CWL-ness, then maybe today's Motivational Monday post will help?

 

Dr. Seuss said it best: "Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind."

 

Until next time... Happy Holidays everybody!

Motivational Monday Is Here!

Sean White - Monday, November 04, 2013

It's time to begin our new Monday theme:

 

Welcome to Motivational Monday!

Motivational Monday is just that, a Monday, on which we try to motivate you with a motivational message. We might not post a message every monday, but we'll try to.

Today's motivational message is simple: just remember that a smile is a curve that makes everything straight!

...Just another little something to brighten up the start of your week.

Happy thoughts from a local business!

The CWL Blog Is Here!

Sean White - Sunday, September 01, 2013

Welcome to the CWL Media blog!

 

This is our first post and one of not very many.

 

We'd much rather spend less time writing blog posts and more time designing websites for our clients, however, this blog will serve as a taster of some of the many possibilities open to you when you hire CWL Media to build your next website and have us host it on our Kontent Katalyst system! (Plus this will be where all the latest news and offers will be made available to you.)

 

As you can see, this blog section still requires a little work, and the only reason it looks different to the rest of the site is because we took one of two approaches to our blog - unfortunately this one was the more technical approach and it didn't pay off so well! But aren't you glad we did it on ours and not yours? We call this a necessary learning process and it now means we know the best route to giving our clients beautiful blogs.

 

When we get some free time, of course, we'll tidy our blog section up and make it look and feel like the rest of our site, but it won't be a priority, since the priority is, of course, building YOUR websites, not ours!

 

We don't really have much else to write for this first post, so we should probably wrap it up.

 

Stay tuned for more blog posts from CWL Media, coming soon!

So long!
