Case Studies

Websites created using our SHINE Method




As a new business offering School Finance Accreditation, SchoolMark wanted something different and unique to help them stand out in the marketplace. With the need to provide paid member access to a range of online forms, where schools can submit the required information to support their accreditation, this project was more than just a website design and build.


Working with Maxine Allen Morgan on the website design, in tandem we began to build the functionality of the paid access and form submission process, based on that required by SchoolMark.

We utilised the native access control functionality of the Joomla CMS platform to allow SchoolMark to not only easily enable access to the forms for applicants, but also for the schools to access these forms, know which ones they have already submitted, and then have them all locked once they complete the process - finally allowing the school to reset their application if they choose to re-apply in the future.


Following the launch, we've continued to support SchoolMark in their management of the submitted data which is sent by email and can also be exported in CSV format for further analysis outside of the website.

I was looking for a new website when I saw a LinkedIn post by Chris. I was struck by his approach to building sites, and the customer centric nature of what he is doing, without following fads. My previous site was an awful mess of a DIY WordPress site and I needed to up my game.

Chris took our design brief and delivered on it, on time and in budget. The development process was quick, and he totally ‘got’ the ethos of how we work and we wanted that in our site.

Since going live, the support has been great when we’ve needed it, and it’s a doddle to keep updated. So impressed were we that I had an additional site done too for SchoolMark, which required not only the traditional site, but a portal for customers to log onto to engage with us as well. Likewise, this was delivered when promised, and I’m a happy site owner!
