Brief

Brief

Vocaltel have extensive experience in the telecoms industry, and have both seen and experienced the change from a state run monopoly to a dynamic and competitive marketplace.

As a company we are always keen to work with local businesses, so we were very pleased when Vocaltel, based in Thurrock, approached us to design, build and host their new website, which they hoped would reflect the modern and restrained ethos of their company.

The site had to be stylish and attractive to look at with good use of white-space and modern typography whilst making the best use of the Vocaltel logo and colour palette. Behind the scenes the site needed to run on an easy-to-use content management system so that updates were quick and easy to do. Search engine optimisation was another key consideration as there's no use in having a great website if no-one can find it.

What we did

What we did

As with all our new web projects, the site is built using the incredibly powerful Craft CMS, and is fully version-controlled and hosted on our managed cloud hosting. The site is fully responsive, offering a rich and immersive user experience for mobile, tablet and desktop users alike.

Inspired by the upcoming release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, we designed a site that was clean, simple to use and offered rich and fluid user animations. We have also designed and implemented the same subtle ripple effect that accompanies Google’s new Material Design approach.

The work we did in relation to search engine optimisation continues to deliver excellent results with the site regularly ranking either number 1, 2 or 3 in Google.co.uk for many of their main keyword phrases.

"Having recently sold a successful international wholesale telecoms company I decided that my new venture should have a completely different focus and by default a completely different type of website. I approached Enovate with a very sketchy brief to create a site with a welcoming feel and an emphasis on the local theme and I am extremely pleased with the result.

"The team at Enovate have a quiet, calm and sophisticated approach and provided guidance on content where necessary as well as making suggestions and recommendations if my ideas need to be slightly reined in. All in all the result is a terrific website and a vindication of my decision to use a new web design company."
