Established for over 16 years, NMP Live Limited is a small UK agency based in Leatherhead, Surrey. They represent after dinner, motivational and keynote conference speakers, as well as conference facilitators, awards hosts, comedians and other high-profile artists.
Aside from their own website, a number of exclusively represented clients either need a website because they don’t currently have one, or the one they have needs a redesign and overhaul. Reverend Richard Coles was one of these clients.
Richard is a regular presenter of BBC Radio 4’s Saturday Live and can often be seen on celebrity panel shows such as QI and Have I Got News For You. He is Parish Priest of St Mary’s Church, Finedon. At the start of the website design, he was also said to be performing on Masterchef.
The website has to represent Richard on all these aspects, showcase some video clips of him featured on television, include the books he’s written, also touch on his public speaking and him as a priest, along with his biography and radio / television appearances.
The site had to bring across a lot of information but still keep the user engaged and interested throughout. So pages were divided appropriately, to make navigation easy for the user. Bright colours such as orange and yellow were balanced with more softer colours such as blues and purple, creating a fun yet professional feel. Through the site, large images were used to prevent the site from seeming too text heavy.
Inner pages were balanced with large colourful images and coloured background areas behind the text, along with videos and carousels. Overall the site gives thorough information but is still kept engaging and the user remains interactive throughout.
The client was very impressed and even though pushed for time, had their website completed and live after 2 design reviews. Richard Coles now has his own professional website and with his appearance on Masterchef currently, users can be directed to his website for further information. They are also able to interact with him through his twitter page on the website.
NMP was very impressed with the level of service from bOnline and so proceeded with further websites for more of their clients of which Alan Chambers, a well known public and motivational speaker, will have his website designed next, followed by further celebrities who belong to the NMP agency.
