Learn how we redesigned a dated website for Dorchester’s leading carpenter builders Townsend Timber.
Based in Pulham near Dorchester, Townsend Timber specialises in the design and build of beautiful bespoke timber buildings. As well as custom summerhouses and timber garages, they also provide fencing services and custom gates.
Our first step was to give Townsend’s branding a new lease of life. Drawing inspiration for an oak-framed joint, we proposed a simplistic logo with a soft colour palette.
We proposed a full-width website design to let Townsend’s work do the talking. The homepage was kept really simple, showcasing some projects and drawing visitors into exploring the services offered.
Townsend offer a wide range of services, so we ensured browsing them was easy, utilising drop-down menus and easy to browse service sections.
Seeing examples of completed past projects was really important so we created a case study template complete with gallery to allow Townsend to showcase their completed works and customer testimonials.
Townsend Timber’s new website allows them to add new content with ease, manage and maintain service pages and add past projects too, all from within an easy to use WordPress admin area.
