Design Update: Bargate Homes

We're always keen to keep our existing client's sites up to date in terms of technology and also design. Bargate Homes' website had been live for two years and the Bargate team felt that it was time for a quick refresh to keep it looking modern and using the latest web trends. As part of maintenenace agreements, Oyster keeps all sites up to date in terms of technology, making it easy to apply amends to the design and functionality with minimal fuss. 

The role of a school brand.

Brands are often considered to be something that businesses or organisations have to control how their logo or perhaps their marketing materials look and feel. However a brand is much more than just visual guidelines, it’s about who you are, what you do, and what your values are as a business, organisation, charity or indeed a school. A well configured and effectively managed brand drives how your organisation is perceived rather than leaving it to chance.
