Our work

Here's a few of our clients.

XpoNorth

Since 2012

XpoNorth is a free, two day festival celebrating Scotland's creative industries.

Along with our own content management tools and blog plug-in we set up a submission form for filmmakers and an event calendar for delegates to access during the festival.

Testimonial from Olivia

I have worked closely with Doepud to build, set up and shape two different websites (XpoNorth and ScreenHI). Coming from a non-digital background, this was an entirely new world for me with a completely new language, dynamic and set of processes that I was totally unfamiliar with.

It was a steep learning curve but Blair made it accessible and easy to understand by explaining things in layman's terms and guiding me along the way. He could translate the vision we had for the sites into practical and creative ways that would work through his deep knowledge of the html world. It was a truly collaborative experience and it has to be that way in order to gain the site you want.

Post launch of both sites there was immediate and long term support to tweak and improve functionality and design once there had been a chance to spend time using the sites. Support was there as I learnt on the job how to use the CMS, understand a little of html and upload content. The functionality of Doepud's own CMS is really straight forward and easy to navigate, with help bubbles at every stage. There was never a stupid question and throughout the whole project there was never a moment when I felt I couldn't pick up the phone or, more often, get on messenger and shout HELP!

runABC

Since 2008

Part of the Freetime Initiative, runABC Scotland (formerly Scottish Running Guide) is one of four running magazines (online and in print), providing news, results and running content covering the UK.

The whole site is managed using our bespoke content management tools, from the banner advertising to the race organiser's secure area to the blogs and race results.

Testimonial from Terry

The Freetime Initiative has been working with Blair at Doepud since 2008. In that time we have designed and constructed websites for our successful running magazines. From the initial development stages through ongoing maintenance and improvements to a recent major upgrade, we have enjoyed working with Blair.

Doepud offers ‘value for money' as well as a high quality of service. You always feel you can go to Blair with a problem and he'll help you find a solution. He's also an individual of integrity and we've been able to build a great working relationship with Blair based on the knowledge that he has our best interests at heart.

Today 70,000 individuals visit our sites each month and Doepud has played a major role in making that happen.

EmployAbility

Since 2009

EmployAbility (EA) provide opportunities for disabled and dyslexic students and graduates by connecting them with potential jobs and internships offered by employers like Google, Goldman Sachs and BP.

We developed a bespoke applications building system that lets EA create tailored job application forms for specific roles. Candidates register and submit their applications forms for review before EA decide which ones are sent to the employer.

Testimonial from Tab

We've been working with Doepud on various projects since 2009, starting with the design of our main website before developing our job applications website.

Every project, small or large, from tweaking and improving functionality to designing a whole new website, Blair always manages things efficiently; he has a knack of making complex situations really simple.

Working closely with someone over a sustained period of time, like we have with Doepud, you really appreciate reliability and trust, which is vital when your business relies on your website.

Since 2006

Try Skating is Don Morton's skating website. He provides skating lessons and a calendar of skating events throughout Scotland.

We set up an events calendar alongside various CMS pages, and social integration, including MailChimp for newsletters. We also designed the logo.

Testimonial from Don

I don't do recommendations unless they fully merit it and here's one that does. Blair Millen's Doepud for the very best fully functional websites backed up with unbeatable service. What he has done for me he can do for you. Give Doepud a call. Not not too sure? Then give me a call, Don Morton, at TrySkating.com.
