Dacol offer the full package when it comes to Hygienic PVC wall cladding, ceilings and flooring for commercial or domestic premises.

The client required a more professional looking website to showcase their extensive and high profile client base. They had recently undergone a new logo design and wanted the new site to work well with their new logo. We felt that Dacol required a clean looking website to reflect that nature of their business; and needed to look professional to appeal to their existing and new high end clients.

Wireframes

After some industry research we devised some wireframes to show where the various elements would be sitting on the Dacol website. We wanted to ensure the existing client logos were prominent so users could instantly see Dacol’s impressive client base. We also wanted their news to be pulled through onto the homepage so returning visitors could instantly see what was new with the company. The news would mainly feature case studies so this again would highlight their high profile clients and excellent workmanship. The client had several great project images, which again showcased their high quality workmanship so we ensured these images were prominent on the website.

Design

With a logo in place we had a good place to start when it came to styling the website. We knew red and white would feature prominently in the website design and we wanted the site to be bright and clean to highlight the hygienic side of the business.

The Build

Dacol requested a content management system to allow them to update copy and images on pages and news articles. WordPress is our first choice for content management system and we still believe it is the easiest CMS to use. The Dacol website features several YouTube videos, inserting a YouTube video into WordPress CMS couldn’t be easier, you simply copy the url from YouTube and paste it into the WordPress page and voila the video appears on your website – couldn’t be easier!

The  Dacol Services website project went particularly smoothly. We believe this was due to the fact that the client knew what they wanted from their website and we understood their needs and objectives.
