Let’s Get (L)inked!

Background

Eagles Wing Tattooing is a tattooing company with two locations; one in Manchester and the other in Blackburn. They’ve been established since 1988 and now think it’s time to get a new website for their business to create an online presence. Only present on social media until now, they believed it was time to start showing off their work to the masses with a website that was visible throughout the UK.

Solution

Upon initial set up, different ideas were shared with regards to the style and look of the homepage and general layout. By combining a simple, structured layout with the style and feel that conformed to websites in the same industry, we were able to create a site that was easy to navigate and could show off all their work without being overwhelming.

The vintage look and feel of the old paper background and a subtle filigree to each side really suits the style of the logo and so the brand of the business.  The sepia images in the carousel ties in with the overall themeing of the site, adding to the old-school style. The darker, contrasting footer just gives the site that edge to it, wrapping up the site and providing quick access to the important info a customer would need to contact each tattoo shop.

Reaction

The customer was thrilled with the finished product and felt that the website really reflected how they worked, the art they produced and above all their brand that they’ve been building for a while now. Along with bOnline’s SEO expertise as well as the modern design techniques used, this site will definitely attract potential clients, helping towards the growth of this business both online and in store.
