|Syrah Bed and Breakfast (www.syrahbedandbreakfast.co.nz)|
|Syrah Bed and Breakfast was under new management and needed a fresh, new look and feel. The resulting web site is 100% bespoke and includes database driven content and a built-in online reservations system. The colour scheme and site imagery draw on influences from the buildings and vineyard at the property to provide a tangible link between the online presence and the real world. Visitors are able to locate the property, get in touch, leave feedback, check availability and make bookings direct from the site. The site includes anti-spam features to prevent automated attacks. The owners receive e-Mails whenever Enquiries or Bookings are made and their Guests receive automated confirmation e-Mails following a successful booking.|
|Action for Greyhounds UK (www.actionforgreyhounds.co.uk)|
|Action for Greyhounds UK is a UK-based group campaigning for the welfare of greyhounds and the abolishment of greyhound racing around the world. AFG UK required a site that they could easily maintain with updates on campaign progress, news, details of events and also to share details of the dogs they sometimes take into their care having rescued them from the often appalling conditions in which they are forced to live. Finally, AFG UK requires financial assistance from its supporters around the world and so the site includes a merchandise section complete with shopping basket and online checkout through the worldwide Paypal network. StoneChain Web Design took over the web site and, with regular feedback from the AFG team in the UK and a good initial design brief, was able to build and launch the web site within a matter of days using the powerful and highly customisable WordPress Content Management System which will also allow the site content to be maintained by AFG volunteers.|
