We love meeting new clients and finding out how we can help them! Our brilliant product, Run Your Own Website, has been live for over 2 years now and is proving to be a simply brilliant vehicle for a diverse range of sole traders, companies, charities and other not for profit organisations. Often we will get enquiries from Google, as we did with this client.

The initial enquiry

We were approached back in January by Edward Milward-Oliver. This year is the centenary of the birth of Leonard Bernstein, one of the most acclaimed composers of the 20th century and Edward was keen to put on a festival in Chichester to celebrate Bernstein’s life and work.

Bernstein has a close connection to Chichester, he was commissioned to compose the Chichester Psalms back in 1965 by Walter Hussey, who was Dean of Chichester Cathedral at the time. The Festival will include a performance of this great work with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, conducted by the brilliant Marin Alsop.

There are screenings of films Bernstein scored, including West Side Story (1961) and On the Waterfront (1954), for which he received an Oscar nomination, workshops at Chichester University, talks and performances by people such as Dame Patricia Routledge, Peter McEnery and Darius Brubeck. It is quite amazing how many people are involved in this festival.

Run Your Own Website was ideal for the build

Bernstein always had an inclusive approach with his work and one of the reasons why we were chosen to build the website was because we share those same inclusive values with every website we build. Time was quite short and there was a lot of information to pull together; Sonia and Polly were absolutely brilliant in getting the website built for the Festival. Thankfully, Run Your Own Website is an incredibly solid product and they were able to work quickly with it.

It was an honour for us to be invited to the Press Launch recently and we are so pleased to announce that the website is now live! There is a lot of information about the Festival, details of all the events with information on booking tickets, please do go and have a look.

There are some wonderful video messages on the website as well and we look forward to seeing it grow as the year progresses!

Edward was kind enough to give us the following testimonial:

" We selected Access by Design to build our festival website after reviewing the work of a number of local companies. We were impressed by their design philosophy, their portfolio of clients, and the pricing. The build was achieved on time, and they provided practical support and advice throughout. The resulting website has proved a highly effective platform that meets all our needs as festival organisers. "
