Callanish Capital Partners Site Designed by Ampheon

Published on July 20, 2010

Ampheon launched the brand new web site for Callanish Capital Partners today. Ampheon were originally instructed to design a logo for Callanish, and following the success of that project Ampheon were commissioned to build the marketing web site.

Importantly, the site had to comply with FSA regulations, and the client also required some basic search engine optimisation work to be done. As usual, the project was completed on time and to budget. Kristy Barr, Partner at Callanish commented:

“Thanks very much, it looks terrific!  Thank you for your help, patience and advice.  It's been a pleasure working with you and I will be happy to recommend you and Ampheon's services.”

Callanish Capital Partners was established in 2008 with the objective of becoming a leading provider of quantitative hedge fund solutions for institutionally-minded clients. You can view the new website at: www.callanishpartners.com.

Ampheon Wins an International Web Design Award

Published on July 14, 2010

We have scooped a coveted international Interactive Media Award for our work on a client’s web site, www.rentright.co.uk. The international award is judged by leaders in web design, advertising, public relations, publishing, news and other industries from companies such as American Express, Cadbury’s, Deutsche Bank, Microsoft, OgilvyOne, Time Warner and Verizon. Judging covers web site design, content, functionality, usability and standards compliance.

The IMA judges commented that the Outstanding Achievement award is an extremely challenging award to win and that the website has excelled in all areas of their judging criteria and represented a very high standard of planning, execution and overall professionalism.

Malcolm Wright, Managing Director of Ampheon explained that such awards are not easy to achieve "It’s necessary to have an extremely competent team in all areas of the agency, not just in design or development but across all disciplines including business consulting so that one can really understand the client’s goals."

Wright goes on to explain that the web design industry is unregulated and highly competitive and that this has a significant impact on the UK economy. He said, "There are tens of thousands of companies out there that have paid large sums to build underperforming web sites. We are frequently approached by companies that have experienced problems with their existing developers and lost significant sums of money. One must wonder what impact this has on the effectiveness of online trade in the UK, and of companies’ perceptions of trading online. This award helps to vindicate that there are good companies out there who can take the lead in producing effective, profitable web sites."

Meanwhile Rentright is going from strength to strength with their new site; The company, which provides a portal site for UK letting agents to advertise rental properties to tenants, has seen a transition in just a few months from a brand new web site with a small amount of traffic to over a thousand active letting agent branches and thousands of visitors every day.

We are a London-based web development agency which has been in business since 1994. We specialise in tailor-made web solutions including custom-build web sites, web hosting, search engine optimisation, Google Adwords management and logo design and corporate branding.
