One House Group ltd

Time frame: Present

The Bath House previous site allowed online sales but the product search functionality was limited and many users left without completing their orders due to a less than intuitive checkout process. In addition the company had few reports and metrics to monitor performance or inform improvements. The Solution The new site is built on feature-rich e-commerce solution Magento. Bath House staff can now process orders in multiple currencies, handle multiple delivery addresses and gift wrap options. They can also easily access reports on sales, users, abandoned shopping cart and search terms and can see at a glance which of their products are the most-viewed/purchased. The improved structure of the site enables intuitive product categorisation, products can be listed by type, fragrance and price as well as being search engine friendly. In addition to providing ongoing email marketing support we are also involved with interpreting analytics and future improvement planning.

Warwick Fabrics

Time frame: Present

To deliver a beautiful, fully responsive website that showcases Warwick Fabrics' extensive range of collections and fabrics in full-colour glory, and also allowed customers to order free samples of their products using a familiar cart-based e-commerce style system. The site's design included some unique elements that demanded use of javascript throughout to enhance the experience, including a lovely full-page search window, and hoverable 'hotspots' that allowed clients and visitors to see which fabrics are featured in their collection images The Solution A robust e-commerce backbone was provided using Drupal and Drupal Commerce for the sample requests. On top of this foundation we added a modern HTML5-based, fully responsive theme built from the designs supplied. The 'hotspot' functionality was added using custom Javascript, with some help from the jQuery library (and some lovely percentage-based maths). The administrative side of the project also received some javascript love - with a custom interface for tagging hotspots to images and selecting which fabric to associate with it. Feedback from the client was very positive for this. The frontend search functionality was created using custom Javascript and LESS - built to overlay the entire screen when clicked, it's results come from Drupal's built-in search module, with a little tweaking of the template to show relevant fabrics for results.

Commonwealth Secretariat

Time frame: Present

The site previously represented the Commonwealth Secretariat - the organisation that implements the decisions and plans of Commonwealth leaders. The aim of the project was to refresh the site to focus on the work of the Commonwealth countries and organisations, particularly their projects and events around the world. The website needed to: Strengthen the profile of the Commonwealth Reach new audiences - be clear, clean and easy to use Provide users with a gateway into the Commonwealth and Partner organisations Create opportunities for engagement between: Commonwealth Governments Businesses Civil Society Organisations Youth Networks The new site had to be built in line with the Commonwealth's new brand guidelines, and needed to be responsive to ensure that content was clear and accessible to users on desktop computers, tablets and mobile devices. The Solution Hydrant built the new site using Drupal 7, allowing for the requirements to be met with a modern, and robust content management system. We worked with the Commonwealth's revised brand guidelines to deliver an updated website design that is fully responsive and works well on desktop, tablet and mobile devices. The website is focussed on the work of the Commonwealth countries and organisations across the globe, and showcases their work through extensive use of multimedia - both onsite and from other online multimedia sites such as YouTube, Flickr, Twitter and Facebook. The new site delivers information about the project work and events that take place across the globe, with content tagged to countries, regions organisation and strategic aims. This content model allows the site to provide focussed content to users based on their area of interest. The site also features interactive maps allowing visitors to explore the Commonwealth member countries, and the projects and events taking place.
