Edward Baden offer relocation services for businesses. They have group of global companies offering relocation, crate hire and storage solutions. Each company has a website with some offering language options.
Their original group of sites were all over the place – literally. They had individual installations of WordPress for each of the sites they owned, it was nearly impossible to manage and administrate.
We were apporached by Paper Dog to see if we could help their contact at Edward Baden to consolidate their 14 websites into one place, and make it all CMS driven, and offer lanuage options, and give seperate admin privileges to the individual editors… it sounded like it was a big BIG ask but it seemed no problem once we delved into Expression Engines Multi Site Manager add-on, we were even able to give the sites a little refresh in terms of design style.
The result was a very happy client who has: one login, one central place to go to manage all sites from one control panel, the ability to give editors access to only the site they need to update, and much more.

Pink Cactus started by creating a new logo for S A Kelly which was then applied to business cards and stationery. The website design was next, with concept focusing on showing off the projects completed by S A Kelly.
The homepage features a large image carousel that cycles through some of the main projects, these link to view the gallery for that project or download a PDF case study. The gallery pages contain an animated slide show that cycles through a selection of images for an individual project. The PDF case studies can be used as a promotional device by the client. They can be printed out or emailed to potential customers. All other sections feature a smaller image carousel of projects.
Devoting the top half of the website to images means visitors can quickly see the quality of S A Kelly’s work, the services offered and the type of projects completed. Textual content on the website was kept to a minimum so the images could take centre stage.

Pink Cactus are pleased to announce that the new, redesigned My Interiors Online has finally gone live.
The site was first launched in 2006. The logo, website design and development were all carried out by the team at Pink Cactus. The design, which was created over three years ago, still looks fresh but the client felt it was time to go for a more luxurious style.
In our re-design we’ve kept the logo and deep red colour from the original website so existing customers would sense some familiarity between the old and new look. We add the touch of luxury by using black for the background instead of the mint green used on the previous site.
As part of the re-design and development we looked at ways of simplifying the user experience as follows:
- No need to create an account to make a purchase
- Simplified the order process
- Simplified the search facility
- Optimised the layout to 1024×768 screen display resolution
- Added a footer that contains help and suggestions
- Incorporated a greater use of imagery
