Riccarton Community Hub Website Launch

The Design Company is proud to support the development of the Riccarton Hub Community website. We worked with the Oak Development Trust to develop The Riccarton Community Hub to provide information about Riccarton and help people find out what is going on and what services are available in their neighbourhood.

The website includes a directory for churches, schools, health, recreation and community organisations in the Riccarton area. It also has an event calendar and a latest news section.

There are facilities to contribute news articles, directory listings and upcoming events.

NZ Billiards & Snooker Association website upgrade

The new New Zealand Billiards & Snooker Association website is now launched. The main challenge was managing the large amount of archived data going back to the year 2000. We have been able to achieve a well organised site that is easy to update and can be mostly managed by volunteers within the organisation.

The new website can now be viewed on mobile devices and so is much more accessible and easy to navigate.

Video Editing for Intelligro 'How To' Videos

Intelligro have filmed a series of short 'How To' videos specifically for showing you how to plant Spring bulbs in pots and using potting mix safely.

We then set about editing them to add their branding, titles and captions throughout each video. We also included some background music to add depth to the final production.

They are loaded on their Youtube channel and streamed seamlessly through their website adding a great resource for keen gardeners and landscape enthusiasts.
