|bdC / Moveo Website Design|
bdConsulting Case Study
bdConsulting and Moveo; provide technical and products training to leading banks and financial institutions and personal training and profiling courses.
Whilst each company works within its own market sector and required a brand which worked well in its respective brand space they were still keen to keep brand consistency; so that whilst moving between the two company websites it is obvious that they are part of the same top level organisation.
With that in mind we created a corporate styled logo for bdConsulting to fit into the banking and finical sector and a freer more flowing logo to work within the personal training sector. Both sharing the same colour pallet and overall design feel to help tie the two together. We then pulled this branding though into their website design.
As with the logo design the two sites had to reflect that they were under the same brand umbrella, whilst each having their own individuality. In order to provide this we based each site around the same underlying design template, whilst selecting a different set of supporting photographic imagery from a brand image library which we built for them.
Each image, whilst abstract in nature also has a supporting story which links it into the solution offering of each company. This adds interest and depth to the website and helps differentiate it from other websites in the sector.
‘Creating the website was a truly positive experience. Working together from the start, Krome Design became part of our team and was clearly prepared to invest time and resources in getting it right. The idea for the strong imagery was inspired and has made visiting our website a learning experience for users – one that will evolve over time. And since we’re in the business of learning and development, it’s a very apt component of the site.
At the technical level, the website has been structured so that we can take full control of content, and will be able to add additional pages as and when the time comes.
In short, Krome Design has delivered creativity, quality and efficiency, and has been incredibly supportive throughout the project. It is clear that their approach is to build lasting partnerships with clients.’

|HFM Columbus Website Design|
HFM Columbus Case Study
HFM Columbus provides financial planning and asset management services in the UK to large organisations and well established individuals.
HFM’s website design brief was to design and build a website which sat comfortably within their brand sector and also reflected the individuality and vibrancy of their organisation.
We worked closely with their senior management to create a series of descriptive diagrams pivotal to the site which helps layout their specialist, asset management and employee benefits services in a clear, logical and dynamic manner. The diagrams feature animation and navigational elements coded via HTML5 to work with the latest web browsers, iOS (for iPad, and iPhone) and other mobile devices.
‘We especially liked the contemporary feel of Krome’s website designs, combined with how they had the technical expertise necessary to build a practical, fast loading site that would be a pleasure to view. Our business is complex, so it was a pleasure to work with a company with the patience to understand us, who could present what we do with clarity and style. It has been a pleasure to create our new site with Krome, and it is something we are very proud of.’
Jacqueline Hoyland – Director HFM Columbus
|Bluelight Website Design|

To strengthen their search engine optimisation it also contains a policing blog, integrated Twitter feed and the ability to easily share site content via social media channels and Google.
‘We commissioned Krome, from a number of very professional suppliers, to design our new website.
In the end the decision to select Krome was relatively easy. They impressed with their very personal service, technical knowledge, complete professionalism and were just very easy to do business with, not to mention their very competitive pricing model, which was extremely open and clear.
The final results following completion of the work have been quite amazing with a plethora of very positive comments following launch.
The team spent a lot of time with us in the early stages getting an understanding of our business and our aspirations for the future.
They gave positive input, sometimes challenging us, to help us set our goals.
They produced an easy to understand ‘wireframe’ which helped us to see the layout of the site and manage our inputs.
The site was developed and launched on time, and on cost.
Krome produced a demo site for us to populate in safety and try out different options. Although daunting at first we soon got into the stride and we were given help whenever required. The administration of the site has proved easy. Krome produced a set of video instructions which proved invaluable, as they talk you through how to use the ‘dashboard’ and ‘Wordpress’. We gained many IT tips on the way and understand the benefits of using social media for promoting our business.
As indicated, when we finally launched our site the response we received was terrific and continues in that positive vain. The site looks professional, is easy to navigate and the information contained is displayed clearly. We are already going up the search engine ratings. BlueLight Global Solutions would highly recommend Krome Design.’

|Surrey Biodiversity Partnership Illustrations|
Surrey Biodiversity Partnership Website Case Study
We helped the Surrey Biodiversity Partnership who are housed with the Surrey Wildlife Trust create a new brand to help promote the biodiversity of Surrey. As well as providing brand design for the Surrey Biodiversity Trust we also provided web design services and skinned their XWiki CMS (content management system) driven web site around the new brand.
We designed their Wiki to be based around a walk around the Surrey countryside, creating a series of illustrations which depict a number of different biodiversity types within Surrey. These illustrations are used within the sections of the web site as backgrounds and convey the typical biodiversity types, both in reference to plants and animals which you may encounter during a walk around the Surrey countryside. The web site structure has also been styled with an illustration of an oak which is typical to Surrey.
“Thanks for the lovely designs for the website. We’ve just done the first 2 days of training with our partners, teaching them how to use the site. The more observant made lots of impressed noises about your lovely illustrations – the highland cow was much admired and they liked the country walk idea.”
Sue Webber – Surrey Biodiversity Partnership
