Cover Storey Architects have a stunning new website!
Cover Storey Architects was started in 2016 by Daniel Stroud. Daniel has over 20 years’ experience in the industry, having worked on an impressive range of projects, many of which were large scale. When he started his new company, he needed to have a website built very quickly for it.
Enter Run Your Own Website, perfect for affordable web design
Our low-cost flagship product, Run Your Own Website, had been up and running for 6 months and we had 15 or so websites launched with it already. It was ideal for what was needed at the time and we were able to get it built and launched within a couple of weeks.
Like all our Run Your Own Websites, Cover Storey’s website was Mobile, Tablet and Google Friendly, as well as being fully accessible to visitors with different accessibility needs. They could update the content quite easily and it was exactly what they need initially: a credible web presence.
Time to upgrade
This website met their needs very well initially, as a start-up business, however their portfolio began to grow and, a year later, they felt that the time was right to upgrade to a bespoke website with us. They wanted to have a website that accurately reflected their ethos and their aspirations, as an architectural practice with a proven track record..
The Consultation Process
As with all our bespoke clients, the process began with an initial consultation. We have a questionnaire that our bespoke clients must fill in and they made sure they answered all of our questions thoroughly. Not only that, they put together a fantastic presentation for us in which another member of the team, James, effectively conveyed their aspirations in extensive detail. I filmed his presentation on my phone so my designer Polly could watch it.
In 11 years of web design, I would consider this to be the most thorough brief we have ever had! Polly came up with a stunning set of designs that I presented to Daniel and his team a few weeks later. Architects, as you would expect, have an eye for detail and Polly’s designs were discussed from every angle. I was delighted to say that, as has happened with all her previous designs, Polly’s stunning designs were accepted, albeit with a few very minor modifications.
I love Polly’s work, she really is quite brilliant at understanding the needs of our clients. She came with some fresh, contemporary and truly outstanding designs and we were ready to proceed with the build.
Images Speak Volumes
We always stress to our clients the importance of having very high quality images and Cover Storey will certainly able to provide those. On their website, each category of their work displays individual projects with a smooth rollover effect on each, giving the headlines of the project. Each project has got a slideshow at the top along with large images below and we believe that the entire website shows Cover Storey’s work at their best!
A Client Testimonial
Daniel was also kind enough to give us the following testimonial:
"Businesses are often very personal and individual in their goals, aspiration and ethos. Creating a website which reflects the individuality of your company is no easy thing.
Clive and his team at Access By Design did not foist upon us a corporate template but rather they embraced our ethos and started with a blank sheet and a series of round table discussions.
We were made to feel central and in control of our own website as it grew under their skilful care. Through talented design, a good eye and a tireless ability to listen, Access By Design have created the most fantastic website for us.
The site is beautifully designed both graphically and in terms of its flexibility across any device. We really cannot thank Clive and the team enough and we are completely delighted by the results. This wonderful new showcase will singlehandedly transform our marketing presence. Thank you all."
