Channel were asked to build a new website for Clickety Books - an award winning company who develop children's books and resources intended to help develop their speech and language skills. Clickety's books are also available in audio format, narrated by famous names including Rik Mayall, Ronni Ancona and Catherine Tate.
Sarah-Leigh Wills, an award winning Children's Book Illustrator in Cornwall, provided the website's sketchy designs which we used to developed a very unique and distinct website.
Clickety Books' original website was built using Wordpress, which they quickly outgrew as their book range and online resources expanded. Our brief was to completely re-vamp their online presence with a brand new website, an online shop and a resource centre offering free audio, video and document downloads for readers. As part of the project, we migrated their site content from Wordpress onto the Joomla! platform, giving them more flexibility and access to a wider range of features and plug-ins.
The new website incorporates a range of features, including:
- A very distinctive style
- Audio previews
- Realtime Twitter integration
- Social media syndication
- Fast loading - despite the heavy use of graphics
- An ecommerce shop
- Online audio downloads
- Mobile platform for iOS, Android and Windows phones and tablets
We are proud to support this growing company and expect to see a lot more of them in the future!
