The Brief.

Cecil’s Rent A Rookie are our longest serving clients, dating back to 2004/2005 when we built their (and our) first website!

There have been several variations of the site since then, but in 2017 we needed to simplify the site, whilst also modernising its appearance and functionality. There were several sections on the old website that needed constant attention, and updating, which just wasn’t possible (or required) from the clients perspective.

One of the main additions to the 2017 version is the parts and accessories page, where the client wanted to list a range of items for sale. Although this is not an eCommerce website, the functionality is in place, should they wish to start selling online.

The Solution.

We developed this custom WordPress theme from the ground up, starting with our basic framework and using the bare minimal amount of plugins and code. Keeping it both lightweight and clean.

The website consists of just 5 page templates (home page, main page, products page, gallery and the contact page) – nice and simple!

We decided to keep the 5 core pages (the race car pages) clean and simple, utilising exactly the same template throughout. This works nicely as we can showcase blocks of content, separated by an image, rather than filling the entire page with text.

Each block is populated with a call-to-action, enticing people to get in contact, which leads to more sales for the client.

We made sure to focus on tablets/smartphones when developing the website, and it has been designed so it adapts well to these devices, as well as performing equally as well on desktops/laptops.

The Result.

The website was ‘signed off’ in July 2017 after the finishing touches were applied and final images added.

We have had very positive feedback from both the client (as can be seen by their testimonial on this page) and the general public and the website is performing really well.
