Saints at Play were invited to work with Terry Palmer, the man behind Palmers Boxing Academy, to craft and deliver a website that would be both content and information rich while communicating the organisation’s core values and practice in a visually powerful and attractive interface.

Working closely with Terry and his coaching team Saints at Play put together the designs for the UI, crafted the website copy, optimised web page markup for search engine rankings and constructed each page using a combination of cutting edge CSS and javascript techniques.

Close attention was paid to cross browser support across both Windows and Mac platforms with legacy browsers such as Internet Explorer 6 and below redirected to an upgrade screen allowing users to choose how they could upgrade their viewing experience.

Pie and Mash films provided a documentary they had created to promote the boxing club which was integrated via YouTube video along with an attractive lightbox gallery showcasing the gym’s extensive facilities and environment.

The end result was a website that exceeded expectations accompanied by a delighted response from the team at Palmers Boxing Academy.

The website looks great! Thanks for all your hard work.
