North Western Models is an online shop selling model trains and trackside details.
Following the growing popularity of their eBay shop, I met with company founders Chris Gore and Kevin Colley about designing and building their own website to sell their impressive collection of products (My personal favourite being the miniature pub benches with umbrellas!).
I created a colour scheme based on the neutral greys from their existing logo and print branding then introduced a positive green for the call to actions such as links and buttons as well as a secondary red to compliment it.
The headings use a serif font called Rokkit, as a reference to the Stepenson’s Rocket steam train.
Whilst keeping to a contemporary design I also included a few subtle references to classic British Railways signs such as the arrow heads and tails used for bullet points and pointers, which I hope the customers will appreciate!
Paul worked with us to ensure that our website was tailored to meeting the needs of our business.
Throughout the construction process, Paul met regularly with us to maintain a positive, dedicated, professional relationship which has been demonstrated in the finished website.
