#PutYourPantsOnYourHead #HelpHollie



Help Hollie Campaign - "Pants on your Head"

charity-web-design-cardiffA family based in Cardiff received some bad news, as their 9 year old daughter had been diagnosed with a rare case leukemia, and desperately needed a bone marrow donor match
  -  After some guidance I created a brand and website in order to increase the chances of finding a match

The ultimate aim of the website was to promote the increase in bone marrow donors.  Some people never find a match and others can wait years...

the '#Pantsonhead' campaign was born. The story starts when the Hollie's uncle put his pants on his head to cheer her up. The campaign raised awareness by encouraging the public to take a photo of themselves wearing their pants on their head and post it on twitter!

The campaign was unique, attention grabbing and with the success many celebrities and sporting legends got involved

The new website helped promote their campaign, along with their social networks and determined/persistant family members.The website had a range of pages and the more popular being the gallery page of the huge list of stars, friends and family.

To name a few..

  • Gareth Bale - International Footballer (Real Madrid)
  • Sam Warburton - Lions Captain
  • Geraint Thomas -Olympic gold medalist

The goal of the website was to find a donor, the campaign hit newspapers, news broadcasts and even was the highest trending keyword in Spain! (thanks to Gareth Bale).

As of July 11th, a donor was found as well as increasing the bone marrow database of donors

Below are just a small number of celebrities and sporting icons that were involved with the campaign

The campaign was so big it reached

  • 160 Countries
  • Over 11,500 Visitors
  • Over 27,500 Page visitors

…and counting

The exposure was unbelievable, being featured on the BBC evening news, newspapers and shared all across many social networks…etc

However the aim of the campaign was to encourage donor registration, and in turn increase the chances of Hollie's match being found. Amazingly the number of donors increased dramatically

  • In Wales, between 12 June and 23 June, a 2,580% increase in online registrations.
    In terms of web visits, a 1,530% increase  compared to  the same period last year
  • In Cardiff between 12 June and 23 June, a 2,600% increase in online registrations.
    In terms of web visits in Cardiff, a 2,250% increase compared to the same period last year
  • In the UK, between 12 June and 23 June, a 170% in online registrations compared to last year


More Media...


A lot earlier than first anticipated and a few weeks on Hollie had the news all her family and friends had been looking for.

Hollie found her match. This increased her chances of survival and in the journey increased everyone else's in the same condition. The campaign achieved what they set out to do! and in a very short space of time.


With her treatment and despite the huge efforts to find a match Hollie sadly passed away

The funeral as expected had a huge turnout, and it was quickly established that the family wanted to continue the legacy that Hollie had left and immediately started raising money for Anthony Nolan trust to help others like Hollie.


24 Hour Spin Event

spin charity eventHelp Hollie introducing an event to raise awareness and money for their chosen charity (Anthony Nolan)

The website evolved dramatically, including the content and the look and feel - The site needed a Christmas feel and required an online booking system so volunteers can book their slot ready for the event. The event created by Hollie's parents involved a '24 hour spin bike ride'.

Volenteers would take turn to make sure the bikes wheels would move 24 hours non stop.

Volenteers would book online and take it in turn to have their go (30 minute slots) - and get sponsored along the way. Despite the early hour and late night slots unbelievably 2 bikes were fully booked in just over 24 hours (thats 96 slots/people)
At this point more bikes were then introduced!

The charity event raised a staggering £18,000 (and counting) for Anthony Nolan Trust, and also other events were created such as the 'Penybont to Paris bike ride' and a 'ball' to raise awareness. The amount is set to increase with the introduction of new events

I anticipate the legacy that Hollie and her parents had begun will continue for a very long time. Her family were an inspiration and was amazed by their huge driving force and people power to to really give Hollie a chance

I very much enjoyed working on this charity project for a local campaign, despite Hollie not being with us today, it was a great cause - and was a website project that I will never forget.

The client is an online business offering nutritional supplements that promote fitness and wellbeing. The website was also expected to work hard to educating the visitors in the potential benefits of the supplements and hence had to be extremely informative without being arcane. I welcomed the opportunity of building an e-commerce site because this would definitely be a feather in the cap in my career as a freelance designer Cardiff.

The Client

The client is in the business of supplying fitness supplements that increase the level of oxygen in the bloodstream, a process that yielded several benefits such as increased levels of energy, improvement in the breathing function, nutrient absorption as well as mental focus and alertness levels.
A regular consumption of the supplements also aided removal of free radicals, heart rate reduction, injury recovery, and increase in quality of blood, as well as improvement of the functioning of the bodily immune system.

Design Challenges

The biggest challenge of the website design was to look completely professional as this needed to appear scientific and grounded on rationality. Due to the nature of the subject, it was decided to stay away from the hype and the hoopla that was typically associated with products that promised the world but had little scientific basis to their claims.
Information was required to be presented logically and in an uncomplicated manner so as to be easily understood by common people who were concerned about their health and fitness.

Project implementation

Information provided by the client was logically sorted out in terms of what customers were most likely to be seeking. As a result, the home page had clickable buttons that lead them to pages dealing with the benefits of the products separately for fitness and wellbeing.

Individual pages were dedicated to each of the products and provided the details of the expected benefits accruing to the customers. This made it easy for them to select the most appropriate product for their individual needs. The e-commerce page was very simply laid out to prevent any buyer confusion.

Colour Schemes and Page Layouts

The page layouts were executed be an extension of the brand personality. The primary benefits we all listed upfront in easy-to-read fonts and language with an image of the relevant product. It was immensely gratifying that I, as a freelance designer Cardiff, was able to make the client appreciate the design approach. I am happy to report that the results were extremely satisfying and did justice to my reputation as a leading freelance designer Cardiff.


The request for development of a website for a personal trainer specialising in fitness for women who are planning to have babies or who are in the post-natal stage was an absolutely new territory for me even with my considerable experience as a web designer Cardiff. I am so glad that I was able to demonstrate a complete understanding of the client requirements as well as customer sensitivity in a subject that is completely personal.

The Client

The client is a qualified fitness professional and instructor for first aid administration. She is also a fully-insured member of the apex UK body, Register of Exercise Professionals. The client conducts fitness classes for mothers and babies, gym and juniors, core regain and blast, suspension training, body-tone, meta-hit, MMA for fitness as well as yoga for mothers. The target audience of the website is all women who are concerned about their general health and fitness levels before, during and after bearing children.

Design Challenges

The prime audience of the website comprised mothers-to-be and mothers who were likely to be seriously preoccupied with other issues that normally occur in households with expecting mother, newly-born or very young children. Accordingly, the design principles needed to revolve around easy page loading, simple layouts, and logical flow of information that addresses all the fundamental information requests in an intuitive manner.

Designing the Site

The site design incorporated attractive images and basic text that captures all the essential points of each service offer. The home page is an attractive medley of images that are selected to be attention grabbing and arousing interest about the website contents. All pages thereafter have been kept minimalist with the accent on delivery of vital information encapsulated as briefly as possible.

Accent on functionality

Pages are designed to load faster with restricted use of images. Images were carefully selected keeping the fitness and children environment in mind. The accent was on making the pages look very professional by keeping them simple and uncluttered. Each page is provided with a response device that makes it easy for interested customers to quickly send out an enquiry to the business owner.

Proper Information Structuring

As a leading web designer Cardiff, it was a challenge to properly classify the many activities and areas of expertise of the client without ending up confusing the website visitor. The home page itself features the various selections possible so that visitors with limited time on their hands do not have to read the entire contents of the website to figure out the various service offers. To add to the credibility factor of the clients a separate page has been dedicated to news.
While this not only demonstrates the commitment of the client to stay abreast of the developments and trends in the fitness industry, it also presents a warm and welcoming personality of the client to attract future business. I consider this website as one of the prominent success stories in my career as a web designer Cardiff.


The best part about being a web desig company in Cardiff is that you get to collaborate and work with some interesting clients for their web designing projects. It is always an interesting experience to understand a client and identify what he wants or how he wants to portray his business through web design. A website is pretty much a must in today’s time. You cannot thrive in the world of business which is largely digital today without a good web marketing and web design scheme. For Cardiff Aesthetics, here’s how I worked things out,

Why the Pretty Faces!

Well, Cardiff Aesthetics in simple terms makes you pretty! How else can a new reader online figure that out within seconds of reaching the website? Sure, the name is a dead giveaway but when it comes to selling a service or product – if you like what you see, you’ll be eager to go in for it, wouldn’t you? That’s why the home page has pretty images of people with well placed content that leads you to the other sections.

Blue Soothes

The content theme is blue or black in most places. Blue soothes. When it comes to aesthetics or cosmetic related surgeries– your content or site should soothe the client not scare them away. Everyone who has gone through improvement surgery will have their moments of doubt. So, I chose blue to go about things. Not only do the pretty faces welcome more people, the blue content helps make them read more about the services!

Why is Simple Essential

Every company will sport a website today. It is important not only to focus on making your website stand out, but also to make it work for you. A simple website where the content is well placed and the overall layout easy to access will win more clients over.
The more complicated the site gets, the faster a potential reader will ditch it and move onto the next site available. This is why the plain simple white background and bluish font became the overall theme of the website. It looks simple, makes the images of the clients or treatments stand out while also ensuring readers have a good feel when reading it.

What the Focus Was

You may want to change the way you look or fix something about you to feel good on the whole. Treatments offered by Cardiff Aesthetics helps clients achieve that. The focus on the site is on  what ‘better’ the company can do for you. This is why I focused on the Home Visits, the Treatment Description and related information on the first page itself.


As a professional web designer the focus is always on finding clients and aligning my ideas with theirs. Every client has a general idea of what they want when it comes to their website or how they want it to generally look. If a web designer in Cardiff cannot understand the core of what a client aims to portray online through his or her website, then no design will be good enough. It’s all about focusing on the right overall theme, colour scheme, content, image placement or overall layout. So this is what I did for Video Productions company.

How the Theme Came About

Every company or business owner would have an overall objective or theme they want to portray for their company. For instance, some brands may want to be considered youthful while others would like a more mature image. The image is portrayed accordingly by designers via online content or print media. As a web designer company, I sat with my design client, understood their core goal and image and thought of using pictures to highlight their essence. The overall theme is image based because a production company essentially deals in images and videos. The home page itself showcases client’s portfolio – a great way for a new potential client to immediately see what Crackling Productions is all about.

Why it Looks Different?

Most websites have the Home, About Us, Who we Are and other similar sections. As a designer I can easily play around with this. While I obviously couldn’t disregard these sections, I didn’t make it the first thing you see on visiting the page. That is because, what the company does should come out as soon as you visit the site. It saves time and focusing on images and keeping the tabs up on the corner made sense here.

The Focus on Functionality

If you add too much on your website, it becomes harder to manoeuvre and read everything. The website should be functional and easy to read. Even with a quick glance, you can see how easy it is to skim through the services the production company offers and what they do.

Colour and Content

White and black are the basic colours to keep content simple. It helps to play around with image and image quality but when it comes to the site content, the size and its layout should be planned smartly. The Video Productions website’s home page sports a simple black and white content colour. This makes it easy to read. The sub sections too have the same colour coding with variation of font and shades to go with what is being said on the page.

Image Quality

As the cardiff designer working on this, the quality of the images for the production company website had to be at it best. The challenge was in placing good quality images at the right places to showcase the core services. This is why you will find that the images become the main focus on this site


Be it local markets or the international scenario, brands everywhere compete hard to stand out in the crowd. One of the best possible ways to try and inch a step forward and create a strong foothold in the minds of your targets is by showcasing a thoroughly creative yet to-the-point website with proper branding objectives. People often identify brands by their colours, services, overall image and professionalism and accordingly choose to be loyal to it, or not. Be it consumer goods or otherwise, good branding and a great website can help you create that much required foothold.

Now how do you brand a PR agency?! Making a website for an agency that ideally helps brand others is anything by easy. But the challenge is fascinating too.

At first, it’s all about understanding what your client is about. Once you know what they are about, it is that much easier to try and portray them through a sense of design and right colour – essentials of a good website. A company website has to be attractive yet informative enough to hold the target market’s interest for long at the end of the day.

I first focused on trying to pick a good design scheme that represented in one shot what the client could do for its targets. A door or window, seemed relevant in this state, at the end of the day, good branding opens the pathway to a plethora of options and success. The first step is always about implementing the right design, the rest simply follows in terms of content. Every website has to have that bit of basic information in place that you can’t play around with. What you can adapt is the design and colour to a large extent.

I chose simple colours that made the key design stand out. Basic light shades of green and purple. Branding is all about taste and distinctive collaboration. Colours that aren’t too loud or those that make the content hard to read were out of the question. If you play around too much with design and content, you land up with a confusing website. It is important to keep things simple, elegant and unique.

The challenge typically lay in trying to portray the public relations agency as a one-stop shop in a single frame. On hitting the website, that is what the client would want to tell its customers first. This is where a smart mix of the right words and design elements as well as placements came into play.
It was an interesting project in all, to be making a website for a branding agency that brands brands! A good challenge for this web designer in Cardiff.

Medical Web Site Design for a South Wales Client

Creating websites requires sustained effort and a lot of creativity. In addition to these basics, you need to have the ability to identify with the image of the industry your client represents. A web designer has to be creative enough to make a funky fashionable website for a boutique on one day and then a more formal toned website for a medical company or doctor on another. This is obviously subjective, its important as a designer I represent the colour, design, graphics and layout of a website meant for medical purposes.

When I was working on this business's website, the idea was to create a website that is rich in content, simple in design, yet interesting. Making a formal medical website is the usual way forward, but there is no rule against adding some colour and fun to the pictures and layout. How else would a target customer or potential patient feel good by reading the website?

I focused on using big size images as the main design for the web site cover page. The images showcased happy older people, which in one way represent the people that would ideally suffer from the medical problems the doctor in concern deals in. I used some happy family style portraits too, to indicate freedom from the pain of arthritis and related ailments, the main illness the doctor here focuses on. When you visit a website, especially one that offers a particular service, you would need to feel a sense of comfort in order to continue reading it.

Since the tone had to be more formal, I used basic shades of blue and white. It’s simple, easy to read and showcases a mature image. Blue is also comforting in many ways and also represents the medical sphere to a large extent. Since this was a more service oriented website that focused on healing people with medical conditions, it made sense to use a more content rich layout. Readers need to understand what the doctor is talking about, what he can offer them and related facts. Segregating the information under appropriate tabs was an important task. In a medical website, you have to be clear about what you want to say and how to say it. You cannot bore the reader but you cannot be too brief either. So, in a way, the website had to be content rich.

The main challenge was representing all of this is a creative yet formal manner. With the use of right colours, shades and placement, I think it worked out pretty fine. The site looks mature, reader friendly and is informative enough. Interested readers will after all need to seek appointments to follow through! I’m glad as a freelance designer in Cardiff I got to work on this.

Working on the design of the vintage home needs and lifestyle store was a real delight. Owing to the nature of the website, I needed to push my creativity to another level and come up with a design that had a very elegant vintage appeal, without looking boring or dull.
I have recently had numerous queries from people who want to know more about selling products online. The main benefit of selling online is that you can expand your reach beyond geographic boundaries. Furthermore, maintaining and operating an ecommerce portal is easier and more cost effective than a physical store.

Vintage website design

The client

The client is a seller of vintage goods online. The product catalogue includes cutlery, books, dressing table sets, jewellery, sewing materials and accessories, and several other products related to home and lifestyle.

Target customers

Target customers of the website are all those who like vintage products for their homes. The products are not very expensive and hence, cater to a wider section of consumers.

Design challenges

I don’t mind confessing that this is one of the most interesting projects I have handled.
The first, and the biggest challenge was to infuse a vintage appeal into the website. Secondly, the website needed a lot of work. For one, the client’s previous website did not have online selling features. So, a complete ecommerce portal had to be designed. The third challenge was to create a website that could help the client in their rebranding campaign.

The design

I spent a lot of time coming up with a layout plan and colour scheme. The objective was clear – to create a vintage appeal. So, after a lot of brainstorming, I finally came up with a layout that subtly reflects Victorian home interior theme.
Instead of using solid coloured background, I have used a typical vintage printed wallpaper style in a soft baby pink colour. This, by itself, creates an old-world charm to the site. Using a wallpaper serves another purpose. It creates a homely feel to the page, which is in tune with the type of products sold on the website.
The wallpaper pattern is used strategically on the page along with white spaces in order to make the page look spacious and pleasant. Furthermore, I have used a light grey floral printed border to enhance the vintage appeal.
If you notice, ornamentation of the page is purely vintage, be it the use of a wood nameplate suspended on a link chain, the simple detailing under the “Visit our Store” button or the images in the header section.
The heavy picture frame on the Home Page, which is used instead of the conventional slideshow has an old world charm as well.
The Home Page also has a prominent list of categories in order to simplify navigation on the site. The other pages of the website follow the same layout pattern. However, each page is customised as per its purpose. For example, in the product page, I have used pictures to depict categories.
Since the website is an e-commerce portal, I have included a user-friendly shopping cart. The check out process is easy too.
With its instant connection to vintage, the open and friendly feel, and functional features, this website helps in branding, customer engagement and easy selling.

The client says that it is perfect!


When I received the project of designing a website for an accident repair centre, I was excited because I never had the opportunity to work on a website of this nature before. I am happy that I could meet the client’s expectations.

The client

The client is primarily a provider of repair services for vehicles involved in accidents. Additionally, the company also refurbishes alloy wheels and customises Volkswagen transporters and Vivaro vans. It is accredited by ATI and approved by Mazda and Hyundai.   

Target customers

The target customers of the company are car owners in general. More specifically, anybody whose car has been damaged in an accident can use the services of the company.

Design Challenges

The client’s old website was very basic. It simply had text on a white background. It was low on visual value as well as engagement value. So, I needed to completely refurbish the website and design a new portal that reflects trust, professionalism and reliability, while looking attractive and engaging.
I realised that the new website would also be instrumental in the company’s branding campaign. It was important to create the right impression of the company through the website.

Designing the website

The two things that I dealt with first were the colour scheme of the website and its layout. I decided to make the website look very clean and uncluttered without compromising on its professionalism and reliability factor. The final colour scheme was a combination of grey, white and deep navy blue.
The intention behind using metallic grey is to relate the colour to cars. The use of this colour is restricted to the slider on the home page. The rest of the background is done in pure white. The other predominant colour is navy blue. This colour symbolises dependability, solidarity and trust.
Visually, it offers a powerful contrast to both grey and white.
Grey is also a formal and professional colour. White makes a nice neutral background. On the whole, the colour scheme and the placement of colours on the page present a very balanced and powerful picture that makes visitors want to find out more about the business.
The layout is simple and neat. I have restricted ornamentation on all the pages. They provide the required information in a straightforward manner.
A unique thing that I tried out in this website was to use pictures instead of textual content in most of the pages. This theme is followed on the pages such as Home, Services, Gallery and Bespoke.
On the other pages, textual content is very brief and short. This concept makes it easy for visitors to grasp the real essence of the business. It also helps them browse through the pages quickly and see what the business actually looks like. The experience is almost like visiting the workshop personally. The client approved the concept since its engagement value as well as the visual value is very high.
For the About Us section, I decided to split the content into different pages. Since the client wanted the website to build trust among visitors, we created a separate page that provides brief biodata of the company’s core team.
The website has functional features such as drop down menu, contact form, Google maps integration and slideshow.
The client is happy and so am I!



Working on the website of a Maintenance Outfit posed certain unique challenges and overcoming them added enormous value to my experience as a web designer.

What is the business about?

This Maintenance business is a company based in Cardiff. It provides total building maintenance services and boasts of a client base that includes hotel chains, retail outlets, large office blocks, nursing homes, industrial units, factories, football stadiums, leisure centres, hospitals and many others. In the eight years since its establishment, the company has grown tremendously and was named the 26th fastest growing company in Wales in the year 2011. The company has now expanded to Bristol region as well.

Target audience

The target audiences of my client are businesses and service organisations, as mentioned above.



The nature of business was a challenge because a website of this nature needs to imply a very high level of efficiency, professionalism, meticulousness and a no-nonsense image. The second challenge was to make it appealing to its diverse customer base.

Overcoming challenges

When customers visit a website of a business of this nature, they expect to see professionalism. They have no time for unnecessary frills that only add visual value to the website. Therefore, I chose a neat and clean layout with white and grey background highlighted by dark orange.

Grey is a stabilising colour and when used strategically, it makes the web page look formal, elegant, dependable and mature. White enhances these characteristics while simultaneously negating the drawbacks of grey because too much of grey can make the page look depressing. In order to add a dash of colour to the neutral colour theme, I used dark orange/red, a colour that indicates passion, aggression, determination and stimulation.

The colour theme remains constant in all the pages of the website. In fact, if you notice closely, I have used pictures that predominantly have these colours so as to make the website look very well coordinated and consistent. Although a visitor might not notice the matching colour theme, it does contribute tremendously to the overall homogeneity of the website and enhances its professional appeal.

Having established the colour theme, the next important consideration was the layout of the page. As you can see in the website, the layout of the home page is very simple, short and offers maximum information without having to scroll much at all. The objective of this presentation is to help visitors obtain information within a few seconds of their arrival on the page. Such a quality is crucial to business websites.
I have paid special attention to making the navigation very easy so that information is easy to get. In my experience, I have noticed that making information hard-to-get increases bounce rates tremendously in business websites.

Along with the home page, the website has five pages and each of these have sub pages. Each page provides detailed information about the respective heads. The website has several functional features such as content management system, drop down menu, custom slide show and contact form.

So, the choice of colours and the overall design of the website personify the ethics of my  design client – a meticulous, dependable and professional company that moves forward with determination and passion.


As a passionate web designer, I always look forward to designing websites that present a certain level of challenge. The website for a Villa rental opportunity was a great experience. It is my pleasure to write a case study about this project.

What is it about?

The website was for the Villa, a luxury air conditioned villa available for rent in Sandy Ridge, Florida. The villa can comfortably be shared by two families. It is complete with five bedrooms, swimming pool, free wi-fi, electronic safe, games room, large flat screen television and lots of other features.

Target audience

The target audience of my design client are tourists and visitors from around the world in general and Americans and Canadians in particular. The age group would be between 30 and 60. The villa is not among the most affordable but can be afforded by upper-middle class and affluent families.


The main challenge was to make the villa look very attractive and inviting through the web pages, while making it suit the sensibilities of the target audiences. I had to design a site that could entice tourist to visit the villa. Another challenge was to infuse the character of the location and the villa into the website so that target audiences get a feel of what to expect when they visit the place.

Working on the website

Florida is known for its sunny weather, beaches and infinite fun. In order to infuse these elements into the website, I decided to use colours that reflect the character of the sea and sand. All pages of the website have a common background picture depicting the sea, the far away horizon and the beautiful yellow sunset. This typical sea scene of Florida runs as a common theme throughout the website.

The villa is pleasant, sunny, bright and sophisticated. So, to include these elements and to retain the Florida theme, I have used colours of the beach – light sandy brown and white, with blue highlights in the form of text bars and lettering. Since the design needs to appeal to the sensibilities of a wide range of target customers, I decided to use white generously in order to keep the pages neutral, clean and simple.

Designing the Home Page was a challenge because in addition to engaging visitors by its appearance, it had engage visitors by catering to their purpose of visit, which is to obtain in-depth information about the villa.

I planned the layout so that all important information about the villa, including the location, available amenities, attractive pictures, pictures of the nearby attractions, booking button, testimonials and reviews, contact information and important links are present on the home page without making it look crowded.

The website has six other internal pages that provide detailed information about various aspects of the villa. In a website like this, pictures play a very important role because they show visitors what they get. The client provided some great pictures of every room of the villa and the surroundings. This was great help for me since all I had to do was to use them strategically in suitable pages.

There is more to this website than what meets the eye. The website has a built-in content management system that helps easy uploading and editing of content. It also has a contact form.  

The website shaped up really well and the client was very happy with my job

What the client said...

"We needed a new web-site to advertise a Villa we have in Florida as our old site was really looking tired.

Rhys came to visit us at home, took on board what we needed and came up with a web-site which we are really thrilled with.  The web-site is really professional and we feel confident that it will increase bookings for us.
Nothing was too much trouble for him to do and it was a pleasure to deal with him.  We also know that if we had a problem that Rhys is only on the other end of the phone to help us.

We would certainly recommend Rhys to anybody looking for a web-site to be created.

Largest Club in Wales gets an online make over

Hockey is one of the most exciting activity games that you can take up for your spare time. You could also take up the game as a fulltime engagement because apparently in England, there are ways you can earn a decent living by playing hockey. Just like most other activity games, hockey has been linked to several benefits ranging from retaining and maintaining health, social cohesion, team work and help players develop other qualities of life like sportsmanship, responsibilities and intellect.
Talking of health benefits, hockey has lots of short runs and rests, also known as interval training. Interval training is so important in enhancing cardiovascular performance as well help in burning excess calories associated with inactivity. On the other hand, when referring to hockey and social benefits, you realise that hockey is the game that really brings people together. There is solidarity among spectators when they come together to cheer their teams. Incase it does not involve a lot of spectators, the few players involved get really taken into the game and will often meet for a match and in the process tighten their social ties.
However, the challenge facing many hockey enthusiasts is how and where to start the game. There is a general lack of knowledge about where to meet other hockey fans around their areas. In case you are looking for somewhere to meet with your fellow hockey lovers, you should consider one of youth hockey clubs. These host numerous hockey events in Wales and around UK. These are excellent for post high school or college people who might have parted ways with their fellow hockey comrades after completion of their education. However, the same clubs still host high school students especially during tournaments. For those who have discovered the magic of hockey clubs in reviving their love for hockey can attest to the fact that hockey club is the best way to experience hockey for their social, physical and intellectual development.

When working with the club we needed to portray all aspects of the sports that the members know and love. All members join for many reasons so it was important to get all these areas across when visiting the website. The use of design and restructuring the site has encouraged a new use for members - whether it is checking fixtures, results, news or the next upcoming social event. The web design project was produced to the comittee and is now constantly being updated.
