  David Harber

The latest redesign reflects the growing stature of the company and is a confident statement of David Harber's unique aesthetic.

The site was already successful in the search engines for a broad range of searches (see our search engine optimisation page for details of our seo services). The transition to the new site was carefully managed, and David Harber is now doing even better in the search engines than before.

DesignForProfit has also created websites for David Harber for the US market and for Russia.

  Flash planner

View Flash planner page
(Requires Flash 6)

Lifehacker logoThe marquee planner has received positive coverage, including from the popular US life tips blog Lifehacker, describing it as: “a simple, user-friendly planning tool available to all”

  County Marquees special features

Marquee planner: County Marquees wanted an application that would set them apart from rival marquee companies and engage customers.

DesignForProfit came up with the marquee planner: customers choose a marquee size, select furniture and drag items about to create a marquee layout.

The marquee planner also allows visitors to save and share their plans. And to request a quotation based on their plan — creating leads for the company.

 
Marquee venues

View marquee venues map

Google Maps Mania logoThe mapping blog Mapperz liked the venue map, pointing out that it “does well due the integration of locating, planning events and gives clear and full specifications of all types of marquees available.”
The venue map also got a mention in a UK Google maps mashup roundup on the popular mapping blog Google Maps Mania.

Marquee venue map: The planner proved so succesful that County Marquees wanted more standout content. The marquee venue finder brings together information on marquee venues in the South East UK in a compact and convenient interactive map.

Such comprehensive information on marquee venues is available nowhere else on or offline.
