Project Overview

The Client

Lowestoft Camera is a Film Processing and Photo Lab. They specialise in traditional photographic methods, offering a full range of film processing and printing services. They are a local film laboratory with national reach. They also sell an extensive range of film and photographic equipment through an e-commerce store.

The Challenge

Henry and Dawn from Lowestoft Camera came to us looking for a comprehensive e-commerce store for their new startup business. The store had to accomplish three tasks: a contact form to gain leads; pages to advertise their services along with an order form for customers to download and fill in; a store where customers could order and securely pay for their products. The new website had to appeal to it’s target audience of film photography enthusiasts, as well as being user-friendly, and responsive across all devices.

The Solution

After our initial client call, we were able to gain detailed information about the business and website specifications in order to build a comprehensive plan. Firstly, we created a new domain and set up a hosting package using our preferred host Krystal Hosting. Then we began to design the new site using WordPress – A content management system that makes editing web content simple. We used the brief to design a multi-page website with an e-commerce shop section. Having created a draft version we showed it to the client who was able to offer feedback so that we could refine the design and content, before publishing the site live.

The Results

It was a pleasure to work with Henry and Dawn from Lowestoft Camera to build them a completely new website from scratch. We were able to accomplish all the requirements that Lowestoft Camera had asked for. Not only do they have a website that appeals to their target demographic, but they have a marketing tool that reflects their brand image perfectly and gains crucial exposure for their service, creating traffic, and conversions. Since completing the site we have been heavily involved in its development, including building a new logo, SEO optimisation, and ongoing technical support.
