The old web site was showing its age in terms of design and it was not very search engine friendly. Our brief was to create a web site in a very short space of time in order for News Associates to start taking course bookings on the new site prior to the September 2009 course.

e2train needed to upgrade their web site to act more as a portal for their online training and courses. The site needed to be flexible, easy to update and the design was to fit in with the existing corporate brand.
We worked closely with the client to create the "look n feel" which followed guidelines and was user friendly and easy to understand. The web site has been constantly evolving and we are now involved with e2train's email marketing and their regular e-Newsletter.

News agency Sportsbeat approached Tigerfish with the spec to build an ambitious news site to hold the many articles their teams write daily. The original aim of the site was to just focus on Olympic news, but over time it has evolved to host a whole lot more.
The original brief was to provide news, blogs and features in a well categorised manner alongside a solid commenting system.

Tower Hamlets College wanted to set up a site to help people being made redundant get back into work. The main aim of the site was to promote the courses run by the college, along with several partner training organisations.
It also needed to provide guides and information to help people who are being made redundant or employers being forced to make people redundant. The site came at the height of the recession and needed to be put in place quickly.
As we’re into the new year and everyone is full of lists or predictions of what they want to achieve I thought I’d take a different slant and look at people I want to spend more time working with, meet, engage & collaborate in social media and marketing; or at least hold a really decent conversation with across 2010. You can click on each name to find out more for yourself (twitter name at the end of each as well)
Here’s my list
Here is a great interview with Nick Harrison, creative Director at Dashal.com – it sums up how agencies should be embracing social media as a new communication channel – perhaps the communication channel. Agencies need to get on-board with the new way of marketing …..
It’s about getting focused and offering a client more value for their budget and producing results.
After the success of other projects with Tigerfish, Ascent Publishing was keen to expand the online property sector to serve the growing market for holiday property in France. The “Renovation” project was set out to generate revenue and assist users in the search for houses in France.
ICO created a bespoke option that enabled Ascent to take its Plotfinder Business model business abroad, within tight budget constraints.
Ascent Publishing has worked on many projects with Tigerfish and this year, 2006 has seen the acquisition of another magazine title – “Period Living & Traditional Homes” which further increases the portfolio both online and offline.
The online team at Ascent are more than aware of the importance of a strong online presence and using Tigerfish, the aim was to reflect the traditional nature of the magazine and its content but with an element of bringing both mediums up to date.
DJ Murphy approached Tigerfish regarding the major redesign and redevelopment of £ “Horse & Rider” which was required in order to bring the online offerings both up to date, ahead of the competition and in line with the success of both of the printed publications.
Today we have updated our systems to the latest version of Drupal: 6.15. All customers whose sites operate on Drupal 6 can now benefit from the enhanced security and performance, although the update does not add any new functionality, so the next time you log in to your site to edit anything, you won't find things will have moved around!
The official release was last Wednesday, 16th December, and we updated our systems as soon as we were sure your site would not be interrupted.
