Web site design: Blue Bear Trading

Edinburgh based sole trader selling reclaimed railway and concrete sleepers.


Andy was looking for a web designer that would take care of all his needs: writing the text, finding and selecting images, designing the web site and optimise it for Google to drive traffic to it.

It was not easy to find the images, as the products Andy sells are not very common and stock images are not readily available. At the same time, Andy sells nationwide from various delivery depots and there wasn't any chance to take original photos. What you see are largely images taken by customers using mobile phones, that have been craftly photoshopped to look good. We also sourced other non-professionally shot images and obtained permission to use them.

Andy is very happy with his website, that was developed with minimum input from him, who is very busy running his business and could not have afforded to put much time into the process.
