New Responsive Website for Local Artist

Most of our time over the spring and "summer" has been taken up with setting up Foragers, our new small farm, however we have also been doing some web sites including one for local artist Jinty McKirdy.  Take a look.


Variety is the spice of life

It's been a while since our last post, but we've not been resting on our laurels. Most of our time and efforts have been concentrated on setting up Foragers Foods. A radical departure from graphic and web design? YES, but we like variety in our lives and farming/design certainly gives us that. Most of our recent work has been creating responsive website for new and existing clients. Have a look...

It’s been a busy old summer!

Possibly our busiest ever in what is traditionally the quietest period of the year!  In the next few days I will be posting links to some of the projects we have recently completed. First off a website for Troon based Westward Marine Surveys.

The website is designed to be RESPONSIVE. In short the website will adapt to whatever device you view it on; computer, tablet or smart phone.

Kilbryde Hospice Website Launched

Last month saw the launch of a brand new website for the Kilbryde Hospice.  The McAlpine Partnership were commissioned to design and build the website with integrated content management throughout.  When complete the site will have over 60 pages of information and news as well as lots of innovative fundraising initiatives & events.

2012 will be a landmark year for the charity and the culmination of 10 years of fundraising as building work commences on a £2.3 million purpose-built palliative care hospice to be built in the grounds of Hairmyres Hospital, East Kilbride.  This will enable the charity to expand their services and offer specialist in-patient nursing care to the people of Lanarkshire.  So the fundraising activities will be cranked up a notch or two to meet estimated annual running costs of £1.3million.

Why not visit the site and make a donation to a really worthwhile cause.


Free Range Video and Website for Corrie Mains Eggs

Corrie Mains is an award winning family business run by Jim and Anne Smillie.

The Smillies met the McAlpine Partnership through our work with the Ayrshire Farmers' Market and approached us to design and produce a new website with particular emphasis on a short promotional video.  We immediately set to work with a days filming at their newly established free range state-of-the-art site near Mauchline in Ayrshire.  The video is a light hearted movie which aims to show the 5-star facilities and accommodation enjoyed by over 20,000 happy hens.

The web site, includes the video, shows the various Awards won since 2003 and lists where to buy the eggs throughout west central Scotland.  Corrie Mains can update the site using an integrated content management system.
