New Logo For Kilmarnock History Group

It's always good fun when you're given a blank sheet of paper and allowed a bit of free expression!

Well as part of a wee project we're doing for The Kilmarnock and District History Group they asked us if we could start with a bit of branding. The project's going to be broken into a couple of phases with the group needing to first of all get their on-line communications in place using social media and then in the longer term looking to working collaboratively with other bodies to create both written and visual on-line archives of all things Kilmarnock.

The phase one website is due to go live on the 7th of August, The Facebook pages have been set up and the group are testing their blog pages as we speak.

The logo however has already been completed much to the delight of project co-ordinator Gary Torbett and it is already featured on the Kilmarnock History Facebook Page and Blog

We're just planning out a new social media campaign with them currently which will lead to an improved on-line presence through the use of Blogs, Facebook and email marketing as well as a refreshing of their website for 2011.

In the meantime the website remains live and performing wonderfully well with a high level of on-line bookings being converted through the site.

Enterkine Celebrates Ten Years with New Restaurant

Over the years at The Edge we've worked with the team at Enterkine on a number of projects and currently provide the exclusive Country House Hotel near Ayr in the west of Scotland with their booking engine Bookassist.

We've also just spent some time doing a quick mini audit and update of the hotel's search terms and key content on The Enterkine Hotel website. In updating the site we were once again impressed by the quality this wonderful hotel offers the visitor to Ayrshire and their continuing commitment to taking it further.

2010 marks the 10th anniversary of Enterkine being opened as a Country House Hotel and in that time have established themselveas as a Hotel and Restaurant of great merit having been awarded numerous accolades for the quality accommodation and service they offer and, of course, recognition as one of Scotland’s top fine-dining venues thanks to the talents and skills of their award winning Head Chef, Paul Moffat, and his team.

Much of their success has been achieved through a commitment to develop and continue to grow the hotel and restaurant services. With the introduction of our unique Woodland Lodge and the opening of the refurbished Kirk House they now have more quality accommodation on offer than ever before. More recently, the installation of their stunning permanent Marquee at Enterkine has allowed them to develop their corporate events business and to cater for larger scale weddings, now placing them as one of Ayrshire’s leading wedding venues.

We look forward to a continuing relationship with the team at Enterkine.

New Website for Redspire

We're delighted to have gone live with a new Content Managed website for Glasgow based Retail IT Consultancy Redspire.

We first worked with Graeme Miller of Redspire when we developed a website for the Olympia Skating Club last year and so delighted with the ease of use of our very own CMS, The Claymore Project, that he came back to us recently when his own company website needed a refresh.

We've brightened the look and feel of the old site up and the content including the metatags, images, links are all client managed.

Graeme commented on the project, "The Edge has worked closely with us to develop a website that we are very proud of. They understood our requirements from the outset and were able to interpret them into a creative execution that exceeded our expectations. We are delighted with the results."

New Branding for Highland Golf Group

We're getting the final launch of the new website for Highland golf group Dornoch Firth Golf.

The group comprise of five wonderful links golf courses in the North Highlands - Tain, Dornoch's Championship and Struie Courses and the great layouts at Brora and Golspie.

The clubs have got together to create a discounted golf pass and over the past six weeks The Edge have been busying themselves with leaflet design, member cards, wallets and of course website and blog development.

The logo was developed after a meeting with the project leaders and was designed to encapsulate the history and heritage of golf in the area and the links with course designers Braid, Ross and Morris. We feel that the end product captures all of that.

The whole project reflects this pedigree and plays heavily on it. More to follow in the next week about how the project developed in the meantime you could have a look at some of our other logo and branding projects.
