Rock 'N' Critters are among the UK's leading marine aquarium specialists. Their showroom is located here in South Wales, and it has to be seen to be believed - watch this video for a guided tour:
Rock 'N' Critters wanted their online presence to be every bit as impressive as their real-life showroom, and so they enlisted the help of the Designer Websites team. We were asked to create a responsive ecommerce site that the company's customer base - marine aquatics enthusiasts - would find inspirational and easy to use.
After a lot of hard work, the new website is now live! Visit www.rockncritters.co.uk to explore it for yourself.
What's new on rockncritters.co.uk?
- A great new look - We created a completely new design for the Rock 'N' Critters website. The updated site is a feast for the eyes, inviting users to dive deeper into the amazing world of marine aquatics.
- Improved categories and product pages - We wanted to make it as easy as possible for Rock 'N' Critters customers to find the exact item they're looking for, whether that's a key piece of aquarium equipment or an exotic species of saltwater fish. The new website is very easy to navigate; the company's many different products are sorted into intuitive categories and subcategories, and the product pages themselves contain all the information a user is likely to need.
- A simple, secure online checkout system - When making a purchase from Rock 'N' Critters, you can either create an account or skip this process by choosing the Express Checkout option. The checkout allows you to pay with a credit / debit card or with Paypal, and any information you enter on the new website is sent via a secure (HTTPS) connection.
- Resources for aquarium owners - The new and improved Rock 'N' Critters site is stuffed with extras that marine aquatics enthusiasts will find helpful. In addition to the new blog, which allows the team to share their expertise on all sorts of different topics, there are in-depth guides to fish and coral care, an FAQ section, downloadable reference charts, and even a couple of custom-built tools that calculate how much water and live rock you should put in your tank.

Hyper Recruitment Solutions is the science-based recruitment business set up by 2012’s The Apprentice winner Ricky Martin after receiving an investment of £250,000 from co-owner Lord Alan Sugar. Specialising in science jobs, HRS help to match some of the biggest employers in the country with the most talented and vibrant job seekers to fill crucial roles and positions within sectors such as engineering, biotechnology and pharmacy.
We’ve been working with Ricky and the HRS team ever since they launched way back 2012, assisting with their original website design and development, and a number of redesigns since. Sometime last year, Ricky contacted us as he was hoping we would once again be able to provide our professional services to bring his website up to date with another redesign, providing it with the contemporary look and feel it now craved, as well as some additional technical features which enhance the user experience even more.
How did we help this time?
Firstly, we updated the design to a more modern look! We also enhanced the code using the very latest coding technologies, standards and optimisation techniques. We have made the new HRS website much easier to navigate, highlighting the essential information needed by both employers and job seekers, as well as the vital advice and support aimed at successful candidates who have acquired important roles within organisations. Along with this totally new redesign, we also fully integrated their chosen in-house software solution, namely RDP Pro, into the website using the latest RDP API. The integration means that the HRS staff can focus on using RDP Pro, whilst the website automatically pulls information on positions offered through the company, without any need to manage the website. The integration with RDP Pro also allows job boards to be automatically populated, thereby simplifying the internal management of job advertising. This seamless integration means jobs instantly appear on the website, perfect for eager jobseekers!
As well as this bespoke integration with RDB Pro, we have also introduced new features to the job search such as job alerts and the ability to save individual jobs to a wish list. Increasing the level of interaction and functionality that potential recruits have with HRS.
With simplified menus, sleek new page layouts and a host of new features, we're sure that both Ricky and Lord Sugar are as proud of the new look as we are. Despite the new design, we haven't compromised any of the things that made the previous site great such as incredibly fast loading times and responsive pages, allowing users to have the same great experience no matter what device they are using!

Sidan Property Group, founded in 2015, are a privately-owned family property fund with a fantastic track record for evaluating, reviewing and finalising property transactions in a seamless and competent manner. Since they were established, they have quickly built a portfolio of corporate real estate across the UK including retail units, listed buildings, public houses and multi-storey properties that have been used for a variety of purposes.
What did we do?
Sidan required a website that both reflected their image and could be easily navigated by their potential property buyers. The company got in touch with Designer Websites and asked us to design and build an easy-to-use brochure website that represented the professionalism that they as a company wanted to showcase.
One of the key elements of the website that we created for Sidan was the ability to download relevant information such as a property’s location, brochure and floor plan. We created a fully functional content management system that allows company members to easily add, remove and change properties within their property portfolio. The website is also fully responsive, with potential buyers able to browse and navigate through the website on all desktops, tablets and mobile phones.
We are proud to announce that the brand new Sidan website is now live and can be visited here - https://www.sidangroup.co.uk/.

They found their old website had become out-dated and came to us to achieve a more modern look for their brand. Alongside a fresh new look, they also wanted their website to become fully responsive across all devices.
What did we do?
Our design team worked to provide a modernised version of their existing functional e-commerce website.

Invented in America sometime in the mid-20th century, beer pong
is a drinking game that has achieved international popularity in recent years - it's become a staple fixture of student house parties, and it's not hard to see why! While avid players have come up with countless different variants, the basic rules of beer pong are very simple and incredibly easy to pick up: all you have to do is throw a ping-pong ball at your opponent's formation of cups, and if the ball goes in, they have to drink that cup's contents (usually beer). Empty cups are removed from the game, and play continues until one player runs out of cups.
This deceptively straightforward premise has spawned a whole industry: you can now compete in beer pong tournaments, hang out with your friend at beer pong bars, and purchase all kinds of beer pong products and accessories to help you play. All of which brings us to Designer Websites' latest project: www.beer-pong.co.uk
, an ecommerce website dedicated entirely to beer pong!
The Beer Pong UK website has a fun, modern design and a layout that's as simple as the game itself. From one page, beer pong fans can browse beer pong sets, brush up on the rules, and download handy printables (including a tournament bracket and a 'how to play' guide). The website also has a 'Drinking Game Ideas' blog in case you need any inspiration for your next big party!
We're very pleased with the finished version of this new website, and its responsive design means that you can buy your beer pong gear via smartphone or tablet just as easily as you can on your PC. Visit the Beer Pong UK
site now to take a look at our latest work, or contact Designer Websites

, is fully responsive and offers a great user experience across all devices. It also shows off PrimaPorcelain's tiles in spectacular fashion, with amazing photographs of the tiles in situ sitting alongside hi-res images of the products that really give you a feel for their irresistible texture.
