Hello, Tatey and myself recently finished a new project:

The aim was to build a site that allowed the business owner to manage all his content and seo optimisation himself as well as to easily integrate social media. The theme also allows the client to manage the hero images and alt text directly from within SS.

The project was a great success and the Google PageRank has already crept up 1 point. The only issue is that we had to wait 2 months for the Flickr Commercial API key which eventually was delivered. This is a bit of an issue therefore we are looking at integrating RSS feeds directly.

The design was based on a TemplateMonster template which we edited to meet the requirements of the owner (eg: the keyboard to represent the musical aspect of the property).

Looking forward to any comments!

Congrats , good work !

I really like the usability of the site (very clean navigational structure , contact information in the footer etc. , little details, but they make the difference).
