It merges digital solutions and design beautifully.
Select Digital Print's NEW website is featured in the official "Expression Engine showcase" http://show-ee.com/ which is a great tribute to the company. Most of the other companies featured are from the USA and Australia. To have an Irish company showcased is a huge achievement and just goes to prove Ireland really does have some fresh home grown talent.
Select Digital which is based in Tallaght, Dublin 24 is an Irish-owned and operated printing house specialising in the design and printing of quality large and small format printed media at an ethical cost.
Tara Wilson-Black, Director of Select Digital Print Group gave DPNlive some background to the project.
“When we decided to build a new website from scratch there really was only one company we felt could carry out the task impeccably, “Frequency Design" a Cork based web development company, “ said Black. “Having worked with Liam Fitzgerald the owner on previous web based projects we felt he was the only man for the job. He understood what we wanted to achieve”
The focal point of the project was to create a site which focused on digital solutions and design.
“When we hired Frequency Design to build our website, together we started planning before building,” continued Black. “The result is a functional, creative, well built website that showcases our award winning digital print and creative capabilities. The image galleries were built using Matrix combined with Nivo Slider. Static content is served via MaxCDN. The site was built on a heavily modified version of the Zurb Foundation framework. Main video uses Sublime Video HTML 5 player with many additional add ons.”
Black added that Expression Engine is really easy to use and that updating the new website daily is not cumbersome and time-consuming like other content management systems.
“The use of Pinterest and other social media sites allows us to drive more traffic to our website,” she said. “Although the site only launched six weeks ago it has already helped increase sales and most importantly awareness of our business. Potential clients can now find us relatively easy online which is transferring into direct sales for Select Digital. Building a website that actually works, drives your business and clients to contact you is a lot easier than you think. It does however require planning, time and a web developer that understands your business and what you hope to achieve from your website. Beware of companies offering to increase your SEO on your website offering SEM, use a reputable "IRISH" firm that understands the industry you are in and what you hope to achieve from your website.”
