In the Autumn of 2012, Design Hive were commissioned by The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company to create and develop a fully responsive version of their consumer website LoveTheGarden.com on a platform which would allow their International teams to align in future months. Phase one of the project is now complete and LoveTheGarden.com is live and ready for the new gardening season. This 5000+ page website comprises fantastic gardening content, including articles, videos, product features, competitions and a whole lot more.
The fresh, contemporary design is powered by Drupal, an open source web development platform chosen for its powerful versatility, scalability and rigorous security. The responsive design provides a great UX across all your devices.
Well, another year is upon us, and as is customary Design Hive Ltd are proud to announce our 2013 desk calendar. This year following a Pop Art theme, bringing a splash of primary colour to your desktop!
2013 calendars are available to all our clients and should be with you by Christmas. There will also be a limited stock available from our offices, so if you require extra copies—or didn’t receive yours in the post—please don’t hesitate to contact us (available whilst stocks last).
We were recently commissioned to create a new responsive website for Dream Detail, a professional vehicle appearance specialist.
With a growing clientele base of both private and commercial clients, Dream Detail now stands as one of the counties leading detailers. Their knowledge and dedication has taken them beyond the realms of cars and bikes and into the marine and aviation sectors. Professional, friendly and fully insured, they offer services both mobile and at custom-built studios in Farnham, Surrey, also with units located in Hartley Wintney, Hampshire and Guildford, Surrey.
Inaspace is a new mobile optimised web and email design service we are developing with our partners Maximus Productions. Inaspace websites are fully mobile & CMS optimised and are perfect for rich media experiences such as video playout or for campaign micro-sites.
Inaspace emails are also mobile optimised and are the perfect accompaniment to Inaspace websites or, indeed, existing corporate or brand sites.
Both illustrate site functionality and our focus on clean design and our ‘user first’ approach. Inaspace is expected to launch fully in early 2013.
As the whole country celebrates The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company thought it would be a great idea to encourage thousands of school children to grow flowers, fruit and vegetables in patriotic red, white and blue colours. Design Hive Ltd were involved in the branding and promotion material for this great project.
Pupils from more than 150 schools, stretching from Aberdeen to Torquay, have participated in the growing experience and thoroughly enjoyed growing plants from seeds, seedlings, bulbs and plugs to flowering and harvest. These Miracle-Gro’wers have created beautiful, productive plants that are sure to delight the Chelsea Flower Show 2012 audience of thousands of avid gardeners. We hope that Her Majesty The Queen will be equally impressed!
Visit LoveTheGarden.com for pictures, advice and up to the minute stories about the Miracle-Gro schools growing activity.
Update: both the Miracle-Gro’wers gardens received the prestigious RHS Silver Medal at this year’s Chelsea Flower Show. Well done to all!
