Melinda has worked on [three] websites for me. One for a mining client and one for my yoga business. I cannot speak highly enough of her skills! She is communicative, friendly, incredibly creative, great value for money and delivers a high quality product within the agreed timeframe. If you are considering using Melinda for your website requirements, don't look any further, you've hit the jackpot!

Web project details:

Keren and Jacqui, the directors of Brisbane YogaSpace, had an existing website and wanted a revamp. They wanted a branding and design revamp that was colourful in keeping with their studio atmosphere, and wanted to link directly to their MindBody yoga schedule on their website, to avoid having to remember to update class times in two different places.

They needed to easily be able to update copy, add news, photos and manage their yoga retreats and workshop events. Keren was also keen on changing from their current .net site to WordPress as they found the old content management system difficult to use.

After working with Keren on a number of other projects (including,Falmouth YogaSpace) I was extra keen to get working on this vibrant, fun website with an equally vibrant and fun client!

During the design process I came up with a re-vamped logo for Keren and Jacqui – still using the lotus flower motif, but updated to look clean cut and serene. The layout of the website came together really easily thanks to the amazing photos Keren and Jacqui provided me with.

The Brisbane YogaSpace website is responsive, which means it works seamlessly on all device and computer screen sizes. Keren and Jacqui can update all the copy, sidebars and images on the website themselves, and create new content very easily through WordPress’ back end. Extra fields were coded into the Our Teacher template especially to make creating and updating their teacher details simple – no HTML knowledge required.

The Yoga Classes schedule is pulled in directly from their MindBody account, using a 3rd party Healcode integration, which means Keren and Jacqui can manage their classes and teachers in a way they are used to, take bookings via it, and it updates live on their yoga classes page on their website.

Yoga Retreats and Workshops have been integrated into the site using an Event management plugin, which displays beautifully with custom CSS to match their website’s style precisely. Jacqui and Keren can enter events using a very simple WordPress back end system – similar to adding a new page of regular content – and it will appear beautifully formatted on the front end once they publish it.

The Facebook Like Box was also integrated using the standard Facebook API, to pull their Facebook page feed into the sidebar, and also display their like count in the footer.

Several contact forms are built into the site, including the newsletter sign up at the bottom of every page. Each sends mail directly to their business email address.

I love working with Keren and I hope I get to work with her again in the future. I love how the website turned out!
