FOX Marketing Services – Website build
Often when we take on a new project we begin working with the client to define what the best route to completion is, working with a problem they may have found with their business or a new requirement for their business. This then leads us to confirm a solid brief and ultimately takes us to the next step of creation.
However with FOX Group this was certainly not the case, they were very well prepared, they new what they wanted and they knew who they wanted to do it… And we were thrilled they chose us!
Working with their team we got to understand their business, the skills included within the team and the dedication to ensuring their service was the best around! The problem was the FOX team didn’t feel their previous website told this story effectively which presented a real problem for their business.
After a solid kick off we sat down with the project team which consisted of our team and some of the FOX Groups own creatives who took care of the video and the new brand work.
After the initial project team meeting we set about creating our own mini website audit, reviewing current structure and client feedback/reviews to give us a good overview of the original user experience. Sadly there was no form of analytics onsite so our initial analysis had to be qualitative.
After plotting out the key project acceptance criteria and areas we believe would present worth while opportunities we got cracking with some new wireframes.
Our resident design guru LJ stepped up to the task with FOX and got to work building out multiple wireframes, whilst reviewing key functionality and areas of video which we believed would engage the user through out.
Once we found ourselves in a position where our wireframes had been agreed we moved right along into digital design, creating clear visual concepts and beginning to add the final touches and delighter points.
Presenting our designs to the board in Tunbridge Wells I’m happy to say we got the all clear with very minor tweaks… We were now ready to call in Jason who took the visuals from concept to code in a very small amount of time – testing thoroughly through out. This took us into our final stages of testing, setting up GA and logging the new sitemap with Google Search Console.
Since live we’ve received some lovely feedback from the FOX team as well as some of our own clients!
Some highlights from the project:
- Bespoke design customised to an easy to use editor all run on a WordPress CMS
- Integrated video through out
- Mailchimp Integration allowing all signups to automatically populate the FOX Group email database
“I would recommend Creative Blend in a heartbeat. Working with the team was a pleasure, and their professional and hardworking ethos was evident throughout.
From the start Grant worked hard to explore what we wanted out of our website and understand our industry. Communications and planning were always on point which enabled the project to run smoothly.
Importantly for us Creative Blend remained flexible during the build. Our goal posts regularly changed which impacted the requirements of the site, but they rose to the occasion every time.
The proof is in the pudding and they have designed and built a website we are very proud of. We can’t thank you enough for your time and effort, we are thrilled. FOX Group look forward to continuing to work with you in the future.”

It’s really important to us that we work with external agencies that are quick, efficient and easy to communicate with so that we can ensure our website is always performing to the best of its ability. Since working with Creative Blend, we’ve been really impressed with how they handle our (sometimes very last minute!) stream of requests and updates needed to our website, and find having a retainer very useful as we know we’re always guaranteed dedicated time to our website each month. We would highly recommend working with Creative Blend, particularly for their level of expertise and professionalism.

I worked with Grant and the team for the launching of my rebranded company. They were brilliant from start to finish, the website design was incredible and I was taken through it step by step with so much patience and care, so I could go on to make changes and manage it myself. I came in for some training on social media marketing with the team which was invaluable, I learnt how I wanted my ‘brand voice’ to sound through fun exercises and was given so many tips on SEO & Social Media, it was more than I’d hoped for. They have always been on the end of my panic emails & answer quickly and effectively, have even responded to my urgent ‘HELP ME!’ messages at the weekend. The fact that they have such a great ethical policy as well just put the cherry on the top really & I would never go elsewhere for anything to do with the marketing or design of my company.
We have worked with Creative Blend for over 9 months now and during this time we have enjoyed great communication with friendly advice. This was a key feature throughout the build of our new website, which kept us informed and helped us make key decisions at each stage. We now look forward to continuing to work with them through out new digital projects!
I have worked with creative blend for the design of my company website and rebranding of the logo. Grant and the team has been very reactive and helpful all the way throughout the process and the Creative blend team have been quick to understand various feedback and adapt this to the end product. I am very happy with their services and can recommend them.
Precise, thorough and organised are some of Grants key skills, but when you add that to a great team player and a great personality, you get the complete package. His enthusiasm is second to none, but this is also backed up with excellent results. People who work with him love him and so do his clients. A great and invaluable asset to any company.
Creative Blend have been generously contributing their skills, expertise and creative thinking to Love Is All We Need for the past 18 months. Their professional and friendly way of being is invaluable to us as a charity that exists on a purely volunteer and pro bono basis.
I had the pleasure of working on a variety of web development projects with Grant and found his ability to get to the route of the problem invaluable. Grant has a natural skill for providing workable solutions through his designs, he fully understands potential technical limitations, keeps the end user at the core of his designs and is great at expressing his ideas to us non-designers. Grant is also an exceptional leader. He gives his team the freedom to explore new ideas and the support they need to see their work come to life. He’s encouraging and keen to develop their skills at any given opportunity.
Grant’s good humour and amiable character making working with him a real pleasure. Throughout the eight months working with us he showed great skill in listening to our needs, taking feedback and delivering a great result. His knowledge of design and conversion have led to strong, inventive ideas that have improved our site conversion.
Creative blend have been an absolute joy to work with. They have been kind, supportive and efficient. The whole experience of updating our website has been fantastic and we are delighted with the end result.
Having worked with Creative Blend for over 2 years now we have really enjoyed a great working relationship. Between our in-house team and the creative & development skills at Creative Blend, we have been able to champion some exciting new projects. This has led us to innovate with new pieces of content & developments taking place. I would highly recommend them.
Working with Creative Blend has been fantastic. Their enthusiasm, rapid response to feedback, and their diverse skillset helped us develop effective new marketing materials, site improvements, and content/SEO initiatives. A great asset to achieving our marketing goals.
