K A Stripp Ltd, plumbing and heating
With decades of experience as plumbing and heating engineers, this family firm did not need a website to get more work. But founder Kevin Stripp wanted to expand the renewables side of his business which will save his customers money and benefit the environment.
The website accordingly majors on ground source and air source heat pumps and on solar water heating, explaining how these technologies work and how customers can apply for grants.
Master HomeStay English Courses
Studying while holidaying in a tutor's home is an increasingly popular way to learn English. Here, a qualified teacher is using her website to set out the choice of courses and residential options she is offering.
In addition to basic course and teacher information, the website provides expanding photos of the accommodation and local area as well as a detailed questionnaire for the student to fill in, giving the teacher a feel for their level in English and their interests.
The 2nd Devons War Diary companion website
This "mini-site" matches the look and style of Pollinger Ltd who publish and distribute books on behalf of a range of authors.
It presents all the extra information that did not fit into Martin Body's book, which is inspired by his great-uncle who was killed during World War I. Some pages still in pdf form are slowly being converted to web pages with beautiful expanding photographs.
Check out Martin's own design feature: the "real" bullet points!

Kate Chitham: artist, painter and graphic designer
Understandably, Kate wanted to control the look of the website that showcases her work in several artistic fields. The result is interconnected squares in soft, pastel colours with delicious swirly watermarks hand-drawn by Kate herself.
Applegreen enjoyed rising to the technical challenges of this unusual project and is very pleased with the result of our joint efforts.
Tenterden Schools Christian Worker Trust
