So, here it is. Welcome to the new Seventy Nine PR and Marketing website.
It’s been a very very long time coming. Granted. We accept that, but we really hope you like it.
We launched Seventy Nine PR in 2009 and we built the site pretty much in the first week of launch. Our first graphic designer and developer Francis and I crafted the website together and it has been a tremendous servant for the four years of service it has given us. We went through a lot together but change is a must.
We started thinking about a new site in May of last year. Design concepts took the best part of four months to sign off especially as we had to fit it around the daily work schedule. We started building in November and then aborted the development as we weren’t happy with a few things.
Winter and Spring passed. In the summer, we decided that enough was enough, the project must be completed. The only issue was the sheer amount of copy which needed to be written. It has taken us a long time to get the copy right. Finally in August we got close to completion. And Voila! Here it is – the all new Seventy Nine PR and Marketing website.
A lot of thought, planning, creativity, sweat, tears, tantrums and some serious hard work has gone into it.
The first thing you will notice is the the fresh design. Gone is the grid system we had in the original website. See below for a visual of what it used to look like.
We have gone for a classy, and contemporary look that we feel reflects where the agency is now at.
We deliberately chose not to add social media icons at the top of the page which is very common with websites now. Instead, we felt it looked classier without it.
The main aim of the new website is how much we offer to businesses and brands today as a service. We are no doubt a fully integrated firm now carrying out everything from PR to website design and search marketing such as SEO.
The main navigation bar now includes a list of case studies of work we have carried out for clients. We never ever shout about what we do for clients so this was a great chance to really highlight the great work we are doing.
In addition, we have also separated our service offering out so clients, both existing and new, are very clear with what we offer them.
You will also have noticed that we have made a complete standalone section for Ethnic Marketing. If you don’t know we are specialists in ethnic marketing and have been doing some great work of late with brands such as Western Union. This year, our business is really focusing in growing this part of our company and this page reflects what we do.
Blog – as always the blog page is a must to have especially as we have so many cool things we need to share. We are looking at doing a minimum of one blog post a week for all those who are looking out for it.
Anyway, we really hope you enjoy the site.
Honourable mentions must go out to Leigh, an amazingly talented graphic designer, Matt for his building skills and Ally for his first class efforts in turning things around in a short space of time.
Finally, a bit shout out to Emma and Sophia for being the best. Simple. These guys live and breathe this company and without them nothing would move.
Feel free to contact us if you need, we are happy to help as always.
