New WordPress for Exeter’s TLB-Revival Motoring Event

Design Credo have created a new WordPress based website for the Turner Locker Barnfield Revival classic motoring event held at Barnfield Crescent, Southernay, Exeter.

Turner Locker Barnfield created a classic motoring event based in the heart of Exeter. Now in its third year the event is already very successful and achieving strong press coverage.

There is a need to present the success of the event in a way that can’t be achieved purely through social media. Further to this it is important to have and effective tool to manage enquiries and ideally diary the event into people’s digital communications.

The site uses the growing library of photography taken by Exeter based commercial photographer Andrew Butler as well as branding developed by Toucan in Exeter.

All aspects of the site’s development have been handled by Design Credo including, acquiring the domain, hosting the site, generation of concepts and content.

Greenwood Guitars and Violins – WordPress Website

Some time ago we were teased with a post about a guitar shoot by Andrew Butler. Well the images are now up and the site is in testing phase.

Working for Greenwood Guitars and Violins of Looe, Cornwall, Design Credo of Exeter have created a new WordPress website .

Design Credo of were approached to create the website following a glowing recommendation from Kevils the Paignton based BMW bike custom shop.

Really happy with the site and I also wanted to thank you for all the hard work and effort you put into it for me; it’s definitely put us on the world stage. Kev-Hill


The GGV guitars were shot with the Nikon D800e using a very simple lighting setup. The time frame to photograph the guitars was limited due to them being shown in a number of outlets in the south.

The guitars are all high quality finely crafted and totally hand-built in the UK using traditional techniques.

Techserv WordPress Site Launched

  • Techserv brochure Graphic Design for Business Results, Exeter | South West | UK
  • Techserv brochure Graphic Design for Business Results, Exeter | South West | UK

Exeter based Design Credo have just launched the new website for long-standing client Yorkshire based Techserv Cutting Systems Ltd.

This website is a consolidation of two previous sites which of course entailed behind the scenes work such as 301 re-directs to ensure that existing traffic is not lost; initial stats show that viewing figures are very strong.

Integral to the site development has been the interviewing of both clients and members of the company. Thanks to both Karin Joehr and Karen Brookes-Ferrari for ‘coming up with the goods’.

Andrew Butler of Design Credo says;

Essential to any project such as this is to listen to the client, and if possible the client’s clients. This way one gets to the heart of what makes a company tick and what makes it successful.

The website brief is part of a much larger ongoing project including;

  • Thorough brand analysis
  • Signage and visitor centre appraisal
  • Photography
  • Print and PDF items
  • Stationery and supporting items
  • Video

As a part of this new website Design Credo have encouraged to forces on the customer-experience of the product; this is already reaping rewards. Case study fact sheets to be delivered either as print or as online PDFs have received strong positive feedback with potential customers educated about the scale of Techserv’s work.

Bike Exif Feature Photography Generates Great Viewing Figures for Customer

Motorbike photographs taken by Andrew Butler have appeared on the prestigious Bike Exif website. In their own words the Bike Exif site is about,

…exposure. Bike EXIF is the most popular and influential custom motorcycle website in the world. We have the largest readership of any custom site, and more readers than most of the mainstream websites too. Many of today’s most successful builders got their break with a profile on Bike EXIF.

Working closely with Chris Hunter of Bike Exif we have supplied a set of simple but striking images of the Kevils BMW R100 café racer. The shots were taken at short notice the day before the bike was to be shipped to its new owner in Belgium.

Website Design

Design Credo have previously produced the Kevils website that Chris was kind enough to mention,

and now that he has a decent website, we’re guessing that business will get even better.

Shooting For Results

The shots were taken with the Nikon D800e with a 24-70mm f2.8. We took our studio to Kevils location and in this instance we used a deliberately simple lighting set-up. As is our general approach post-processing was kept to a minimum, chiefly cropping and tidying up the background.

As Bike Exif mention, the bottom line of a shoot like this is about exposure. Through appearing on Bike Exif’s site (with a worldwide audience) huge volumes of viewer traffic are being fed back through the Kevils website resulting already in a record two days readership. If there is any doubt about this claim consider the graph below. Kevils’ website shows a solid upward trend since its launch but there can be little doubt about the effect that appropriate image placement has had in the final week.

Our work spreads beyond the taking of the photographs, recently we have had further success in placing quality motorcycling images in hi-end European magazines on behalf of clients; we look forward to reporting on this shorty.

Andrew Butler/Design Credo have handled all aspects of the Bike Exif submission. Give us a call to see how we could add value to your viewership through quality photography and design.
