Connecting exceptional talent
Transition Partners are a specialist recruitment agency, supplying to the technology, digital and business transformations sectors.
They approached us on recommendation as they were expanding and moving to new premises, wanting to completely redesign their existing site to better reflect the company, inject some personality and allow their current vacancies to be available to view and apply for online.
Transition Partners are a small team of specialists who pride themselves on building strong personal relationships with their clients so Northern Contrast Ltd were the perfect partners to help move their business forward.
During an initial period of creative direction, we produced a visual approach and a reworked logo to give them a more modern style with an element of fun to reflect the personality of their close-knit team.
This visual style was then applied to the site design which was also restructured and redeveloped from the ground up to allow quick and easy searching of their existing vacancies.
The range of devices accessing sites is constantly changing, whether that be high resolution desktop machines, laptops, netbooks, tablets or mobile devices, it’s become vital to allow our sites to adapt intelligently.By using advanced CSS techniques and media queries, we provided an optimal viewing experience by serving different styles based on the user’s screen resolution. This means that the site automatically adapts and reformats to ensure that it is just as beautiful, clear and easy to use, no matter what device is being used.
Over 60 million websites are powered by Wordpress, a powerful open source content management platform. We love Wordpress because it offers great power and flexibility as well as offering our clients a clear and simple way to manage their sites.We developed a customised Wordpress installation tailored to Transition Partner’s specific needs, giving them a clear and simple method for managing their content.
Our work doesn’t stop with development. We also wrote a bespoke user guide to walk the client through managing the various areas and custom post types that make up their site with clear real-world examples.
We designed and produced marketing email templates in-keeping with the new visual brand, allowing Transition Partners to communicate their latest news and vacancies to their subscribers on a regular basis.
We configured and integrated the templates into Mailchimp and provided the client with all the necessary training to maintain their campaigns moving forward.

“I would highly recommend Simon as a professional, efficient and dynamic Website Designer. Simon's approach to regular communication without continual hounding was a breath of fresh air. Simon was always available at the other end of the phone and responded to emails always within the hour. He was a pleasure to deal and I would not hesitate in recommending his services.”
