6 months as a web design agency in lockdown!

What have we been up to throughout lockdown?

Like many businesses during the current pandemic, our online presence may have appeared to have gone quiet online recently, as we tackle new ways of working, overcome new challenges and keep our client’s accounts operating smoothly throughout the turbulence.

With many businesses moving online and realising the power of social media, we have actually been busier than ever servicing their needs!

Here are just some of the projects we have been working on recently:

Streetbikes CIC

Beanie Media was approached by Streetbikes CIC to redesign and develop their current website, with the objective of enabling them to:

  • Promote Streetbikes’ activities, and bike & part sales
  • Make it more user friendly
  • Improve the front and back end functionality and management of the website
  • Remove current pain points

Having undergone extensive market research, taken time to understand Streetbikes’ philosophy, and done a deep dive in their mission as a company, we presented our mocked-up version of their brand new sitemap and branding. Work is still very much underway to bring all the additional elements together, including relevant imagery and wording. However, we are thrilled with the progress made and being able to work with such a humble organisation.

Branding concepts:


National Resprays

National Resprays needed a website overhaul to present their on-site commercial, industrial and domestic respraying service as a leader in its industry. Having previously worked with National Resprays on implementing and managing their PPC campaigns, we were more than happy to redesign and develop their website. The previous site was just not a true reflection of who they were, nor was it user friendly or showcase their personality.

We created something that builds trust, converts visitors into customers, streamlines contact between customer and client and displays clear succinct information.

We love our on-going relationship with Matt and the team at National Resprays.

Charlesworth Associates

As a leading Accountancy firm in the heart of Leeds City Centre, Charles Stewart Associates (Formally Sochall Smith) contacted Beanie Media recently to redesign their website to create a more eye-catching, modern feel that would reduce visitor bounce rate and increase engagement. Work is well underway to bring our initial concepts to life and we continue to work closely with our client to launch their brand new website.

Brighouse Stove Centre

We are currently working with Brighouse Stove Centre to revitalise the look and feel of their current website into something sleek and easy to navigate, ensuring visitors can not only find what they want online but encourage them to visit the centre. With various different brands and styles of stoves, we know the importance of ensuring all information is clear and imagery looks appealing to consumers. We have already created catchy new designs and layouts for the Homepage, “About Us” section, and brand pages and look forward to our continued work on this exciting project.

S&A Engineering Services Ltd

We’re continuing our work with S&A Blowers, specialists in sales, maintenance and repair of air blowers, to visually revamp their website and create more fit for purpose navigation. We’ve given them a completely modernised look.. but we can’t share too many details for now…

New faces

At the start of September, Mohammed Sufyaan joined us as our Web Developer and has hit the ground running working with some of our existing web clients to bring their vision to life, on-screen! Mohammed has recently finished a degree at Huddersfield University in Web Technologies and is already a valued member of Team Beanie.

We are proud to be supporting the Apprenticeship programme and as such, look forward to welcoming 19-year-old Mark Whitehead who will be joining us in his role of Digital Marketing Assistant, and learning about our client’s organic and paid social media accounts to ensure we support their online presence and growth.


All in all, whilst lockdown has proved a challenge in some ways for Beanie Media and our clients, it has given us all a new appreciation for how critical online presence and digital marketing really is, in a new era where the high street is slowly and sadly diminishing.
