Assalam Aleikum brothers & sisters,
It’s been a long time since we posted our last blog post as we have been extremely busy with so many exciting web projects recently. Today we wanted to share them with you all inshallah.
Alhamdulillah the below projects are just a sample of the vast selection of new websites, redesigns & revamps we’ve benefited the Ummah with & accomplished recently by the Will of Allah (SWT). So there they come:
We start this showcase with Relief4africa.org. Relief 4 Africa is an independent NGO dedicated to improving the lives and welfare for people living within the Horn of Africa. This is the first official website for R4A with a very straight forward goal. It was a pleasure working with their team in designing and developing this CMS site and we wish them all the best in their mission fisabillah.
Next is Newcollegemanchester.com. New College of Manchester is exactly what the name says it is, a new college situated in the city centre of Manchester offering a wide variety of courses and education, this is their first official website so it was important to portray the right identity and high quality of standards you would expect to find at the college itself, we kept this CMS site simple for easy navigation but added a splash of colour to keep it young & fresh.
Then we have Islamic-relief.com‘s annual financial report project (http://www.islamic-relief.com/annualreport). It was a great honor and pleasure to work together with the Islamic Relief team to accomplish their annual report’s mini site. We were able to implement the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 to this site as recommended by W3C to make the web content accessible to people with disabilities, to cater and attract a wider audience Inshallah. (The design was provided by brother Owais Khan)
This is a professional Muslim matrimonial site (http://simplymuslimmarriage.com) that provides UK Muslims a platform to be introduced to like minded individuals who are serious about getting married, a unique site well worth visiting or passing on to single relatives and friends. This is a unique matrimonial website that chooses a partner for you based on the compatibility test results.
Another muslim matrimonial site offering an original and distinctive service to single Muslims not only in the UK but also all over the world. (The design was provided by brother Arberor Hadri).
QB Lettings (http://www.qblets.co.uk) specializes in residential lettings and property management services for premium and sort after properties within all inner and outer London Boroughs. The agency offers extensive expertise in deluxe design and lifestyle choice flats, houses, and apartments in the rapidly growing area of cutting edge interiors. They needed an easy to use website to showcase their available properties to potential clients and this is their first official website that we were honored to provide them with as well as a CMS facility to enable them access to update their site at their own convenience with minimal technical knowledge. Here is what our client says:
Firstly, I would like to thank the team at Bespoke Internet Solutions (BIS) for developing and designing a high quality website for my business.
Secondly, the team have been there every step of the way, from start to finish. I would definitely without any shadow of a doubt recommend BIS to my family, friends, and colleagues. Having said this I hope to continue to seek web related solutions and services from BIS for any changes and requirements for my business.
Butterfly Deals (http://www.butterflydeals.com) is a London based company which specializes in offering exciting new experiences for women in a suitable and safe environment. A large selection of their deals have been tried and tested by women a variety of everyday women who want to experience everything from the thrills of adventure to the relaxation of spa days – all at affordable prices. Butterfly Deals already had an existing site but it was very basic and limited them to what they could do. We were happy to offer them a great value for money revamp package that would facilitate their growing needs.
Then there’s Capital-Driving.com, the driving trainers. This is their first official website and we were happy to help provide them with a bespoke CMS site that included their own easy to use online booking system. This is what our satisfied client say about it:
We are very happy with the work done by Bespoke IS / Ummah Design in creating our website – www.capital-driving.com.
The quality of work is good, as are the speed of design, collaboration facility and responsiveness of the Project Manager – Sherzod Karimov – to our queries and alterations.
Given that we also got a corporate-standard logo designed as part of the project, we certainly will not be complaining about value-for-money in a long time.
We are encouraged by the output so much that we have commissioned a web- and e-mail-hosting package with the same company.
Thanks very much. I am sure Allah (SWT) will reward your efforts here and in the hereafter.
The Guiding Stars (http://www.theguidingstars.co.uk) is a vibrant youth-led organisation who organises activities to empower and support the achievements of young people. It was a pleasure to help design and develop such a project, it’s one of very few organisations set up to help our Muslim youth, although they mainly work with young Somalis in Birmingham, their events, courses & workshops are Alhamdulillah open to all.
Preseli View (http://www.theguidingstars.co.uk) is a family run self-catering accommodation aiming to provide a restful break for families and couples who are looking to escape into the tranquility of the Welsh Countryside. This is their first official website that they needed to promote their property, display pictures, prices, latest offers, availability information. It also comes with an online availability checking and booking system for both the potential client and their own convenience. Our client says:
I am very pleased with the service I received from Ummah Design to help create our website. My knowledge was quite limited in this area but I was given excellent support throughout the project as well as thorough training on how to use my CMS which has helped me a great deal now as I feel confident to make changes as and when I need to. Although my requirements were changing as the project developed this was received positively by the team and amendments were made swiftly. Overall I felt the service I received from Ummah-Design.com team was outstanding and exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for a professional service that offers exceptional support.
May Allah (SWT) bless your business so it continues to grow from strength to strength and reward you all for your hard efforts in providing a valuable service for Muslims.
And last but not least we have OldhamIslamicAcademy.org. The Oldham Islamic Academy is a new project in development to set up Oldham’s first Islamic Academy. The Academy proposes to teach vital aspects of the National Curriculum coupled with Islamic subjects. They intend to begin with teaching children between 5-11 years at Primary level and then aim to eventually teach at Secondary and Post-16 levels Inshallah. The best thing about it is that the school will be state funded and therefore provides FREE admissions to all of its pupils, inshallah. The purpose of the website is to raise awareness of their appeal and make it easy for those who would like to donate towards the cause.
As we come to the end of our showcase we hope to have given you an insight to the wide variety of projects we have been busying ourselves with.
