Local web development agency, The Web Orchard, picked up a gold award at the annual Mayor of Shrewsbury’s awards ceremony last night. The current Mayor of Shrewsbury, Councillor Miles Kenny, presented the annual accolades to individuals and businesses which have made a significant contribution to the town during the twelve months of his office.
After previously picking up gold and silver awards for their other business ventures they were presented the gold business award in recognition of The Web Orchard’s enhancement of the economy of Shrewsbury.
Speaking of their award Pete White, Director at The Web Orchard, said, “We’re thrilled to have recognition for the hard work we’ve put into establishing The Web Orchard as one of Shrewsbury’s leading web development agencies.”
Based in Shrewsbury Town Centre, The Web Orchard, complete projects for organisations from all around the world and provide Drupal and WordPress development, managed hosting and marketing services.
Since The Web Orchard’s formation in 2007 the company has worked with a number of clients including the Shropshire Fire & Rescue Service, Original Shrewsbury, Love Shrewsbury and Telford Shopping Centre.
One of Shropshire’s leading web and IT companies has recently revealed its new logos and branding, to support its growth to becoming one of the region’s best technological companies.
The new branding follows a previous office move within Shrewsbury, which has allowed Information Solutions and its sister company, The Web Orchard, to hire additional staff to support their commitment to providing the best web and IT services within the region.
Peter White, one of the directors of Information Solutions, says, “Over the past year our businesses have gone from strength to strength, and with future development planned it’s been great to move into the larger offices and refresh the branding so it better reflects the two companies as we progress into this phase of the company.”
“We’re also happy that we’ve been able to remain in The Pump House in Shrewsbury as it’s a great low energy and environmentally friendly building, and allows us to have a great central hub for working with the whole of Shropshire and the West Midlands.”
Along with its aim of providing the best IT and web services to its clients, the company is also dedicated to providing valuable services for the larger community.
The company which also runs the popular Love Shrewsbury website and the Community Hub web services for local parish councils – has helped dozens of local businesses and organisations create an online presence for themselves.
The company’s rebrand was carried out by Carl Jones Design, and it is not the first time the two companies have worked together, having recently worked on projects such as the new Housing Plus Group, Blue Square Building, and Battlefield 1403 websites.
Set up in 2003 Information Solutions has become one of the region’s leading professional IT support providers and web development companies.
With clients based throughout Shropshire and the greater West Midlands area Information Solutions are able to offer a whole suite of IT services from bespoke IT Support Packages to the latest cloud based services and effective IT Security Solutions.
The Web Orchard specialises in Drupal and WordPress content management systems and has developed websites such as Telford Shopping Centre, Shropshire Fire and Rescue and Shrewsbury Town Council during its ten years history.
Information Solutions aim ‘To be the leading IT & Web provider in Shropshire, the business that people want to work WITH and FOR’
Advertising revenue has been sliding in recent months but has been offset by the weakening dollar. It might be time now to start working on a strategy for increasing advertising through the recession.
The service is simple to install with a small PHP script to embed into your sites template. From there everything is automated. A cost in TNX points is given per page based on page rank but you can still earn from pages without a page rank.
TNX is good for:
- If you have a site with a lot of pages - such as a blog with posts, category pages, monthly archives and pages.
- If you have a site with a good page rank or have page rank on internal pages.
- If you do not want to worry about selling advertising, approving adverts or adding/removing adverts manually from your website.
Payment can be made at any time to your PayPal account.
Knowing what to wear for a fancy dress party is always a pain, I normally try to keep to something topical. With the recent Transformers film out it was the perfect opportunity to come as Optimus Prime!
I recently came across this video which gave me the initial concept for my Transformer. The idea is that I could be both the robot and the truck of Optimus Prime.
Here is a video of how the costume worked.It's basically made from one cardboard box split open apart from one hinge. I've then attached it to my back with a belt and added two other boxes to support it on my shoulders - this way its high enough above my head to close and the weight is evenly distributed.
I've then attached another bit of card to the shoulder boxes so that I can freely move up and down (if I had strapped it to my chest I wouldn't be able to bend and you would be able to see my feet.) The slots in the bottom of the card are so I can move my legs while crouching.
It looked the following while crouching:
Half way up:
And standing up:
Benjie had come as a giant Tetris piece - it made a handy drinks holder.
Here is a better picture of the side of the truck.
Who would ever have thought this was not a real truck...
Group photo - hint: I'm in the middle.
The giant wings proved difficult for getting through doors.
A full set of pictures of the evening can be found on my Flickr account.
Much love to Beanie and Nej for hosting the party.
