A directory website design project for occupa.co.uk in collaboration with Alex Reuben – London, UK
As an established commercial property consultant in London, the Occupa flagship website needed a full design refresh to modernise the brand, reorganise a vast amount of content and improve SEO opportunities.
Look ‘n Feel
Large sweeping background and banner imagery accompanied by transparent rich blue, gold and grey overlays on feature pages and simple soft grey page layouts on all sub-pages establish an easy to navigate browsing experience. The main menu is extensive, linking to every page (some 64 pages) on the site. Embedded third party property search filters and live property listings results are the main attraction at the top of every page. The key challenges were in finding a user friendly navigational solution and to design every page in an interesting and easy to read way on every possible screen size.
Popup message and chat forms along with secure contact forms in sidebars and the footer make it easy for potential customers to 'get in touch'. Alex can create and manage property instructions, blog stories, testimonials and messages via a bespoke front-end editor interface. Great care was taken to ensure all third party function interacts seemlessly. The website includes all the necessary tools, as standard, to ensure speedy, efficient, legally compliant and safe delivery of all content from the server. Built on the WordPress platform.

"Rita is fantastic. She turns work around quickly. She has far more attention to details than I have experienced with other website designers and treats the website she is creating as if it were for her own company. I now have 2 beautiful looking slick websites that are easy and welcoming for new visitors to navigate. Hopefully this will reduce our bounce rate, increase the time new visitors spend on our website and convert them to customers. I have very high expectations and Rita has met these. Rita has fully understood what I am trying to achieve. I am a demanding client and really value when she challenges some of my ideas with suggestions for a different direction. She really cares about the end product / result. An excellent website designer / artist. Thank you Follyfox, thank you Rita."
