It is always nice to work with a Client with an eye for detail, as was the case when we were asked to design a logo and website for bespoke building firm D Sparham Ltd. The proprietor David Sparham did not want a typical builders logo using a classic rooftop shape but more a logo that embodied the modern style of buildings that his firm build in some unusual locations. So the illustration of an intricate wooden roof with square walls was to be the icon used as it is already the signature of his firm – a good visual fit as well as being a real point of distinction. We created version to work as white on black and white reversed out of a black background, which works better on stationery, clothing and on company vehicles.
This newly design logo with it’s illustrated icon adorns the website and can be seen here > DJSparham.co.uk along with some stunning photographs of very stylish buildings, conversions and extensions all created by D Sparham Ltd. The website aims to impress visitors with the style and quality through photos taken by David and colleague Tam Douglas and direct visitors to the extensive image galleries showing not only flagship new build projects but also conversions and extensions and other bespke building services whch also can be very stylish giving a feel of real contemporary living.
One of David’s new build projects at Coldingham Bay has been featured on Homes By the Sea which appeared on Channel Four (min 21 onwards). Selling at over £1.25m it is a series project and a view of the finish will explain why with “wood clad butterfly roof towering above colourful beach huts, 12 foot high widows, Welsh slate walls, uber cool German kitchen and Scandinavian suspended log burner…” Channel Four presenter Charlie Luxton was suitably impressed.
The website is also well built as a fully responsive WordPress site designed to work on desktops and mobile devices and to be updated by the Client as the ever growing portfolio of work expands. The website also has Google Analytics so we can track the webstats to fully understand web users needs.
