The latest goings on and design projects from the minds of Peacock Carter, the Newcastle upon Tyne website design agency.
From a sample of our design work as it is released to our thoughts on the web design industry, our blog could be said to be a source of entertainment, bafflement and awe-inspiring design.
We often work with clients outside the region - or even country - who seek us for our technical expertise.
Recent project wins with clients in Scotland - and particularly in Edinburgh, spurred us on to launching Peacock Carter Edinburgh, to promote our expertise a little further afield.

We're pleased to announce that we have launched our new website for Peacock Carter Print!
We have offered print and print design to our clients for the past 7 years and counting! Glowing reviews from our clients prompted us to expand our reach in the world of print and print design, applying our passion for design with high quality printing and (as always) excellent customer service. Peacock Carter Print offers print design and printing of business cards, roller banners, brochures, letterheads and more! With (of course!) free delivery to any UK mainland address.
Last week saw Richard talking at a local event for Drupal developers on the topic of "Introduction to Drupal Commerce". The event, Drupal North East, is run monthly and is community-supported, making it free to attend for those interested in learning about Drupal.
Drupal Commerce is a relatively new ecommerce system based on the popular Drupal content management system, and Richard's talk was an introduction to the concepts used in building Drupal Commerce, and its suitability for various types of ecommerce website.
We have experience of a couple of popular ecommerce systems including OpenCart and Magento, and are always happy to help clients decide which platform is the best fit for their business needs; just get in touch.
Peacock Carter are happy to announce we're now NBSL approved suppliers for web design projects.
This means that you may be eligible for funding towards your website; NBSL (Northumberland Business Services Ltd) offer matched funding for businesses based in the North East who primarily offer business-to-business services or products. The funding is matches up to 40% of the total project cost, and has been available since April 2012.
If you'd like more information about the funding process, please contact us on 191 340 7158, or contact NBSL directly.
We often launch new or redesigned websites on this blog, but our other services don't get much coverage, so today we have something a little bit different: a case study of an ongoing Magento support project for a North East based vintage furniture company, JohnnyMoustache.com.
As one of the seemingly few companies in the North East who work wtih Magento, Peacock Carter are uniquely positioned to service clients such as JohnnyMoustache.com who are after locally based Magento support. And our knowledge doesn't stop solely at Magento: we've been able to help and advise the client on search engine marketing, as well as stock control practices.
