Wildweaves required a bespoke e-commerce website with reliable and stable functionality and a secure shopping cart, using the well-known Actinic E-Shop system.

Photon Web Design designed the website, including a custom 'flower' logo for the site and stationery, and carried out the technical aspects of the site's design.

This included:

  •  customised menu and featured listings sections,
  • contact and messaging systems,
  • payment processing installation and testing,
  • training and techincal support for the staff at Wildweaves. 

Search Engine Optimisation was also provided, which included site design considerations, link farming aspects and Google Analytics integration to help the ongoing SEO campaign.

This resulted in a highly visible website for relevant keywords, and a small business thriving amongst much larger corporate competitors. 

Wildweaves have just commissioned Photon Web Design again, to update the site to include further cart enhancements, onsite visual effects and customer account systems, using the Joomla Content Management System.

Watch this space to learn how Wildweaves' new website helps their successful on-line business grow.

Rod Fanthorpe of Lincolnshire Talks required a website as an online brochure, to help advertise the range of his fascinating lectures about Lincolnshire history and culture.  Importantly, the information needed to be accessible, readable and quick-loading. 

Muted green tones were used in reference to Lincolnshire, as well as  header logo evocative of the flat fields of so characteristic of Lincolnshire.

Google Analytics was installed, as well as an easy to read hit-counter, at the client's request. The Talks Prospectus page shows the beauty and simpliciy of writing in standards-compliant CSS with a two column page and headings/sub-headings creating perfect uniformity and presentation.

St. Mary's Church Wollaton Park required a website to fulfill a number of functions which could help engage with both exisiting congregation members and reach out to everyone.

The new website allows users to automatically register a user account and profile, connect with other members and even an online chat system like Facebook.   Talking of which, a facebook 'connect' button was added, which allows facebook members to log in with their credentials, create a profile, comment on content on the site and update their facebook pagers with those comments.

All in all, the site is 'connected' and boasts a registered only forum, document download section, events calendar and HTML mass mailing component, to name just a few things.

The website has recently been nominated for the Church Website of the Year Awards.


Heaven Hemp came to Photon Web Design requiring an updated look for their 2009 website, including a wordpress-style blogging system and gallery to show to wholesalers. The brief was to create a fresh, new, modern looking website that also reflected aspects of Nepal's heritage and culture.

Brick reds were used in the link sections as a reference to the colour of typical huts and buildings in Kathmandu, while greens and browns reflect the earthen and natural emphasis of their business. A pale background allowed the site to appear new and up to date, while the photoshop header included the 'Lord Shiva' as a reference to Nepal's ancient culture.

The main technology used in this website is the gallery component, which has a lightbox-style pop-out effect when the thumbnails are clicked, and an overlay effect when hovering over the thumbnail to provide quick access to the product numbers and information.
