Take a Virtual Tour of Hove Plinth

Take a Virtual Tour of Hove Plinth

Working closely with members of Hove Civic Society, the group responsible for Hove’s latest art installation; White Rabbit has been providing support for Hove Plinth, in the way of digital technology.

One aspect of the project has been to integrate NFC Tap ‘n’ Go functionality, into the display board on site. Allowing visitors to simply tap their phone against the display and interact with the artwork. There will be a blog post about that in the near future.

Hove Plinth Virtual Tour

If you’re stuck indoors on a rainy day, don’t want to brave the wind on Hove seafront; or for those who simply aren’t fortunate enough to live nearby. White Rabbit has also created a virtual tour of Hove Plinth! Available to see on Google StreetView and also directly here. Experience the Plinth and the 2018/2019 artwork ‘Constellation’ by Jonathan Wright in all its glory; right from your armchair.

Use a VR headset with your phone and go full screen, to create a truly immersive (virtual) outdoor art experience.

About Hove Plinth

Web Design for Australian Art Dealer in Rome, Italy

Web Design for Australian Art Dealer in Rome, Italy

The creatively minded team at Counterweave selected White Rabbit when it came to developing their website, as they expanded and took their incredible collection of Australian art to Rome in Italy. A first in the art world, bringing traditional Australian art and workshops to the galleries and studios of Rome’s exclusive art scene.

This bold move required a similarly bold website, to showcase the stunning artwork and visual treats from Counterweave’s collection of artists. Large responsive banners display the fascinating and engaging artwork, while expansive white backgrounds and simple textual content support the artwork and provide in-depth information about all the other crafts and anima available from Counterweave. Layout and design approaches similar to those adopted by major art galleries.

Website Design Portfolio | WHITE RABBIT CONSULTANCY

With eCommerce integration using Etsy, this website provides an online outlet for this incredible artwork from Aboriginal and contemporary artists, now available in Europe. Items listed in the client’s Etsy store will automatically appear in the websites art catalogues.

Additional integrations provide an online appointment booking system, for other therapeutic and creative services offered by the Counterweave team. This responsive website design offers potential customers and art buyers the perfect way to access these incredible artworks, creative workshops and other “anima” available, from any computer or mobile device.

Art & Craft workshops can also be booked through the website, with a simple calendar view of all the upcoming workshops available, clients can click through for more information and to book themselves a place on any of the workshops listed.

On-going maintenance and updates on the WordPress back-end is carried out by the client themselves as they had previous experience with blogging platforms, so the migration to WordPress was smooth and simple for them.

Check out the website to see some of the incredible Australian artwork available to buy and if in Rome, why not book something a little special like one of their craft workshops to pass the time.

Responsive Web Design for Entertainment & Talent Agency

Responsive Web Design for Entertainment & Talent Agency

Meeting at a local Chamber of Commerce event, Matthew (from Comicus Ltd) and I instantly hit it off. With a similar view towards business ethics and the knowledge that he was missing out on vital online traffic and customers, he had a strong desire for his online presence to be improved.

After reviewing his existing WordPress website, which had been designed in a very restrictive way, preventing ease of updating and denying the maximum SEO benefits. I advised on several changes to make on the website, to at least improve it’s current standing.

Following further discussions and the realisation that the current website theme and configuration wasn’t a viable basis to progress, we decided to rebuild the website with the latest version of WordPress and a more current and compatible theme.

Website Design Portfolio | WHITE RABBIT CONSULTANCY

The new responsive website had an immediate impact on the search results and traffic received through the site. Optimised to be search engine friendly, engaging, interactive and accessible, the new Comicus website is far more suited to the needs of today’s internet users and indeed the client.

This online catalogue website of talented celebrities, individuals, bands and dance acts available to hire for events, provides a simple way to search the huge database of entertainers and then book directly through Comicus using the online contact form, or by phone and email. In addition to the vast online catalogue of talent for hire, Comicus offers several related services to their clients; with video production, corporate events, cruise ship entertainment and other relevant business services.

With plans to develop the site further to incorporate video lessons in comedy and an online event booking system, this long-term relationship is just beginning. Further support with social media will also be provided from White Rabbit in the near future.

Check out the website to see all of the famous celebrities, sporting stars and entrepreneurs available to hire, maybe book someone special for your next corporate event or private function.

Putting Brighton’s Open Market on the (Google) Map!

A regularly overlooked and yet truly fantastic part of Brighton – for shopping, eating or just hanging out – is the long standing and recently rebuilt Open Market in the bohemian London Road district. Until now this eclectic selection of local businesses was only visible if you actually visited the market in person, as of this week you can take a virtual tour of the whole market using Google’s Street View.

Street View Trusted Pro

Working with the new and dynamic management team at the market, who have an eye for a good marketing opportunity and understanding of how people now like to use the internet and truly explore an area before they decide to take a trip there. White Rabbit has created a virtual tour of the entire market, encompassing both the London Road and The Level entrances, the main market traders area, the upstairs studios and a few of the individual business units within.

See below to take a trip inside Brighton’s Open Market from either end:

Best wishes and good luck to the new management team at Brighton Open Market!
