Derby-based web design and digital marketing agency Frogspark has partnered with the Cathedral Quarter, a collection of independent shops, cafes, restaurants, arts and cultural venues at the heart of the Derby City centre. Tasked with the challenge of creating a full website overhaul, Frogspark worked hard to engage users and develop a site with the Cathedral Quarters partner businesses in mind.
The Business Improvement District (BID) were appointed to support businesses in facing the challenge that the opening of Westfield (as it was named at the time) presented. As part of this, they partnered with Frogspark to design and develop a fresh website that enhanced Cathedral Quarter visitors’ experience in both on and offline capacities, as well as providing a platform for current and future Cathedral Quarter businesses to boost their profiles, and compete with surrounding entities.
The new site is clean and crisp and provides a perfect platform to find out more about the products and services available within the Cathedral Quarter. With a Google maps integration to provide a personalised experienced, and provide access to exclusive offers, the Cathedral Quarter website couldn’t be more accessible for the user.
Ashley Lewis, Senior BID Project Manager at The Business Improvement District, said: “From start to finish it has been a pleasure working with the team at Frogspark. Whatever our requirements, they have proved to be professional and knowledgeable in all aspects of design and maintenance and have been extremely helpful throughout. We are really pleased with the new website and hope that both visitors to the area and Cathedral Quarter businesses will find it a useful resource for many years to come.”.
With smartphones being adapted as the norm more than ever, it has never been more important for businesses to make the most of their online presence. With the creation of a website that not only looks great, but also functions brilliantly across all devices, businesses in the Cathedral Quarter couldn’t now stand in a stronger position.
Scott Clarke, Operations Manager at Frogspark Ltd also commented on the project: “It has been a pleasure to work with Ashley and Eve at Partnerships for Better Business Ltd on the brand new Cathedral Quarter Website.”
“Being a Derby based company with strong connections in the CQ area, we were very excited to be tasked with creating a new Website that would serve as the perfect platform for businesses to be able to promote their events and offers to the many visitors the area has every day. We hope the people that visit Derby use this site to easily and conveniently discover the many fantastic businesses that have so much to offer.”.
