Cedar Bifold Company Website Goes Live Today!









After a few months of hard work we've launched the new website for Cedar Bifold Company. You can view the site at http://www.cedarbifoldcompany.com.

The client is thrilled with the site and we think it's one of the best we've designed and built so far. Please let us know what you think.

Client Testimonial
"Working with Brian at Imagine Design Associates has been a pleasure from start to finish. He has provided a truly professional service and his team clearly know what and how a website should look and operate. Our questions were always answered quickly and effectively and he designed and built a fantastic website which was better than we had envisaged.  He also came up with the wonderful design of our company logo.

Throughout the process, Brian was constructive; he opened our eyes to the advantages of the World Wide Web so that we were able to maximise the user friendliness and impact of our site.  We have people still commenting and complimenting our website. He has provided a great aftercare service and we highly recommend Imagine Design Associates to any business who would want to have a presence on the net."  Jeremy & Anna Harwood - Cedar Bifold Company

Cedar Bifold Company - Corporate Identity and Website








 We've currently been busy on designing and producing the new Corporate Identity for Cedar Bifold Company.

This project was quite a challenge as the client wanted to visually portray folding doors in their new logo without resorting to visual clich├ęs. Also, the identity had to appeal to both residential and commercial customers, especially architects who would commission Cedar's products.

The identity we've come up with is highly original, clean, professional and visually represents the company's role and function . It will be a great tool for Cedar to communicate both internally with it's employees and shareholders and externally with its customers and suppliers. The client was thrilled with our design and we're currently building their website which can be viewed on our test server at http://dev.cedarbifoldcompany.com/about-us.

The Bath Half Marathon

 I've just successfully completed the Bath Half Marathon on Sunday 7 March.

My mother Lena died from Liver Cancer last September and spent her last 10 days in a Marie Curie Cancer Care Hospice in London where she received the most wonderful care and attention. As a thank you to Marie Curie Cancer Care, my wife Nicola, my son Dominic and his girlfriend Lizzey and myself all decided to run the Bath Half in memory of my mum and also to raise funds for Marie Curie Cancer Care.

So far, we have raised just over £1,500 through sponsorship and donations offline and also online via our Just Giving website at http://www.justgiving.com/Liu-family. With Gift Aid, the total should rise to well over £1,600.

It was incredibly tough for us as we didn't start training until after Christmas and hadn't done any exercise previously. Also, Dominic was suffering from a sore knee and a terrible cold the Firday before the race. However, we all completed the race in respectable times and the amount of monies we've raised for Marie Curie Cancer Care has made us very proud.

Thanks to everyone who was kind enough to sponsor us.
