LTSE is a local events and production hire company based in Rochester Kent. They promote themselves as a ‘ONE STOP SHOP’ where clients can obtain all their events and production equipment in one place. LTSE pride themselves on delivering a high quality service which caters for all needs and budgets. LTSE started to put together a Website themselves but found that they were unable to fully develop a creative concept and so they approached me. The main purpose of the new LTSE Website would be to provide information about the company, products (equipment) and services. The new Website needed to promote a strong company image and reflect the characteristics of the owner and the company.
The focus of the design was to ensure that it was search engine friendly and optimised for search engine traffic. It needed to meet the requirements of modern users by being portable device friendly. To match the theme of the business, the Website was to provide visitors with an entertaining, informative and memorable experience. Other requirements were that it would showcase previous projects, display testimonials and provide means of contact. Lastly, this project was subject to tight budget constraints.
A Content management System (CMS) was considered the ideal solution because the client would save money firstly on updating (where they could make necessary changes to the website themselves) and secondly on design and development work because social networking feeds and scrolling testimonial modules. One of the strengths of the Joomla CMS is that it can display a lot of content in a small space without being problematic.
