Guild of Musicians and Singers

The old website of the Guild of Musicians and Singers was showing its age. It had been built many years ago using DreamWeaver, and was becoming more and more time-consuming to update.

Fonant re-built the site using Drupal 8, configuring the content management system to make it quick and easy to perform updates. The new site also has a responsive design, so it works well on both small and large screens.

A photo gallery system was added to the website, making it easy to upload photos of events and group them into galleries.

Cyclists Welcome

The CTC's Cyclists Welcome scheme has existed since CTC first formed in 1878. Once issued to all CTC members as the 'CTC Handbook', the list not only aims to help people find somewhere cycle-friendly to stay, but is also designed to promote cycle-friendliness amongst accommodation providers. Listings include details of a variety of accommodation types, cafes and cycle hire operators.

The British Museum Talking Objects Collective

The British Museum wanted a website to enable groups to discuss objects from the museum online, but in private forums. This site features private file handling for images, videos and documents. Each item can be referenced from Forum discussions, and the discussions about each object are linked to from the object's own page.

Fonant worked closely with web developers from the British Museum, and in partnership with Tellura Information Services who provided graphic design and usability expertise.

Monkey Moo Moos VW Camper

Monkey Moo Moos VW Camper Homepage

This site was built for a start-up VW camper van hire business. Artwork from a local graphic designer features high quality photography and a strong company style. The feel is light-hearted and fun, encouraging satisfied customers to add their trip photos, diaries and comments to the site.

The site includes an availability calendar, so prospective customers can easily see when the camper van is available to be booked.

The site was closed down when the business was sold in 2012.

Dates: 
November 2011 to July 2012

Healthy Back Bag

Healthy Back Bag Homepage

This site has some complex e-commerce features, including VAT handling, export order capability, various different product discount and combined purchase discounts, and more.

Custom content types were generated to make it easy to add and manage the many small "box adverts" that link from each page to other relevant pages on the site.

The Drupal theme was constructed to make a working version of a series of Photoshop designs. This was a long and complex job to achieve the page layouts, especially for products, required.
