The Medical Specialist Group's new logo

The Medical Specialist Group’s new logo

The Medical Specialist Group’s new website was launched in October.

With another company engaged to create the site’s framework, du Pré (Guernsey) Ltd’s input was directed mainly to the wording, site navigation, photography and the correct use of ‘webspeak’.

The Logo

Rather than adopt a full-scale change to the logo, a simple colour reversal of the original was chosen.


du Pré (Guernsey) Ltd took and provided the four food photographs used in the ‘Private hospital room’ section of Flexibility and Choice.

Some additional photography remains to be taken of staff members, mainly to replace the ‘mug shots’ used in the original site. This will bring a brighter and more personal look to the site.

This is becoming really interesting. We’ve received another order for a website and more are under discussion.

Another new website

This time, we’ve been contacted by the largest Webasto Distributor on the UK’s south coast, and asked to create a new website for them.

Something new

At the moment, Keto UK has a holding page which has been in place for a long time.

Now, Keto wants a fully operational website with a completely new concept.

Many disciplines

Keto UK Ltd fits and maintains Heating and Air-con systems, Generators, Inverters and Calorifiers throughout Europe.

All disciplines of vessel are catered for, from leisure through superyacht to commercial including north sea offshore support boats.

In addition, Keto UK is Webasto’s main European warranty company.

Beaucette Restaurant’s new site

We are pleased to announce the successful release of the new website we created for the Restaurant at Beaucette Marina.


Although we had considerable periods of poor weather, we are really pleased with the photography.

There remain two additional pictures we need, but this has not delayed the release of the website.


Choosing the URL is so important for a new website. After discussion, it was agreed that ‘therestaurantatbeaucettemarina.com’ would be far too long and cumbersome, and ‘beaucettemarinarestaurant.com’ was also too long.

Having taken a poll, ‘beaucetterestaurant.com’ was chosen.

Live date

The restaurant’s new website went live on 30th January 2014, a week ahead of schedule.

Comments so far show us Chef James and Valerie are pleased with the site and the response from others who have had previews.

It’s interesting how word travels.

The Beaucette Marina website we launched before Christmas has been a significant success.

As a result, we were asked to create a site for the Beaucette Marina Restaurant by Chef Patron James and his wife Valerie. Their site is planned to go live on 1 February 2014.

Delta Training

A further result is that Delta Training, a company which specialises in First Aid and Health and Safety training in Guernsey, has asked us to create a new website for them.

This will an interesting project and much ‘situational’ photography will need to take place – staged, of course!

Launch date

Provided weather holds for the photography, the plan is to launch the site in March 2014. Meanwhile, we have arranged a temporary holding page, here.

Given the success of the Beaucette Marina website, we have been asked to create a website for the Restaurant at Beaucette Marina.

Having taken the restaurant over in June 2012, Chef James and Val Scowen have successfully built its reputation as one of the finest restaurants in Guernsey.


Being winter, we have concerns over the required photography. We will see how we cope.

Planned launch date

The plan is to create the site during January for release in early February 2014.

Beaucette Marina

The brief was simple. ‘How do we encourage more visitors to this beautiful marina?’


Research showed some boaters avoided Beaucette Marina, believing the entrance was narrow and that once in the marina there was little to do.

Neither of these reasons was accurate and needed to be overcome.

New website

The next question was how to portray reality? Answer: ensure the marina’s ‘shop window’, the website, is up to date and portraying reality.

Working with the web design and marketing team at du Pré plc, du Pré (Guernsey) Ltd created Beaucette Marina’s new website which was launched on 16 December 2013.

We hope you find it helps portray the marina in its true light to help encourage visitors.
