Well, it was a long time coming, but I’ve finally, FINALLY finished the newly branded Rockpool website!
And oh my word what a mammoth effort it was. It was like giving birth – except with a lot more tears and tantrums and a little less pain. (Only a little less mind…). These things always seem like a good idea at the time; “let’s rebrand the website!!” we thought. “Let’s update it! Give it some zing! Some wow! It’ll be eeeeeeasy!!” That was 6 months ago. What started out like a simply refresh turned into A PROJECT. And the problem with PROJECTS is they have a habit of taking over your life. We’re all very happy with the way the site is now, but there were definitely sleepless nights along the way (should the background be blue? Or white? Or multi-coloured?! Will more people buy things if that heading is fractionally to the left…? What do you want oh Great General Public? WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM US?!).
Long story short, by the time the new site was launched on 1st August, I think we were all pleased it was done and not taking up almost our every waking moment. And all those involved were still speaking to each other, which is fantastic. We’re so super grateful for all the help and advice we got along the way, and especially grateful to Naomi from Ambient Photography who did such a fab job with our product photographs.
We hope you all like the new website as much as we enjoyed…. no, sorry I can’t lie. We hope you all like the new website because frankly we’re not making another one any time soon.
Enjoy your summer everyone.
