JamJo is delighted to announce a website we designed just won a national award for the Best Website at the AOIFE (Association of Irish Festivals & Events) Irish Festival Marketing Awards. The Ardmore Pattern Festival website was announced as the winner during the AOIFE Annual Conference in Ballinasloe, Co Galway on 11 November. Here’s what the good folks over at the festival had to say: “…beat off competition from the Galway Arts Festival and the Dublin Theatre Festival!! A big thanks to AOIFE and the Carlton Hotel Group and to our website designers, Jamjo.”

A new year and JAMJO are off to a flyng start! We introduce Wild Wood Toys. Our job: to brand, design and implement a full scale e-commerce solution for this Waterford based company. The fine folks over there supply beautiful, handmade traditional wooden toys made from beechwood, maple, birch or pine. They are all harvested from managed forests to ensure dear old mother nature has a smile on her face! The site itself is built on a scalable Magento platform with cross browser compatibility and works neatly on any mobile device you may have at hand. A sound job from JAMJO we must say!
it came to me whilst in New Jersey this year recording some music at Big Blue Meanie studio…i noticed that the very quest to root out the finest of details and trim and chop and improve could often prove fruitless…and you find you have to tear yourself away before you end up with an over produced amalgamation of your own insecurities…the moral of this ditty? know when to finish….know when the bun is cooked!…..too much aimless tinkering and indulgent meddling will remove whats originally good with your designs…there is such a thing as over thinking it after all and speaking of finishing websites…your tried and trusty web lords have been busy these last few weeks putting the finishing touches on various work that has come in…some recent and some that [...]
JAMJO Design are pleased to announce that our site Small Business Can has won a gold award for best website or micro-site at the prestigious CIPR Pride awards. Since we launched the site back in march it has steadily grown in popularity and emerged as one of the fastest growing online small business networks in Ireland and the UK today. A tear comes to our eyes when we see our babies grow up! The Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) Northern Ireland awards were held in the Europa Hotel, Belfast last week. Some of the SBC team were on hand to pick up the award in front of an audience of more than 200 business people. The panel of judges were very impressed by the site saying: “This is a [...]
Today we just launched a new feature on smallbusinesscan.com which will bring all the community activity happening online, offline into what some would call, the REAL WORLD! Jon got out his paint brush today and did up some imagery for the ‘Start-up Live’ events which you can now signup to directly on smallbusinesscan.com The official bit: “Every business start-up needs access to opportunities. That’s why the Ulster Bank and smallbusinesscan.com partnership want to help. Our free ‘Start-up Live’ events are taking place country wide during October and November. Get access to experience, insights and contacts from like-minded businesses who can help you succeed.”
The wee little website we launched back in January of this year has hit the headlines once again……… this time a full feature in the Irish Times. “When Paul Barry set up the website pedigreedogs.ie he had very specific customers in mind: dog lovers who wanted to buy their pets from a reputable breeder”………. the website is simply going from strength to strength and watch out for the few upgrades we are making…. coming in he next few months. Exciting times ahead online at pedigreedogs.ie Well done to Paul and all the efforts from the full team behind the website. VISIT WEBSITE….
Today we are pleased to announce a milestone….just over 50,000 visits to JAMJO’s websites last month!….roughly 70 clients in all…our bouce rate (essentially the percentage of people that nip off to another site having viewed only 1 page) is a respectable 31%… Avinash Kaushik, a Google analytics specialist says: “It is really hard to get a bounce rate under 20%, anything over 35% is cause for concern, 50% (above) is worrying” most proud are we of these stats and hope to hit that elusive 100,000 visits by years end…a big feat! but with the likes of the very popular Small Business Can we think we can get there!

So we finally got around to our brand and spanking new JAMJO website…complete overhaul on the brand was called for…clean, simple and beautiful was the brief we set ourselves…let the work do the talking we said…aesthetics and technics we thought…brains and beauty we fathomed…did we succeed?…hmmm…i think we got close (what do you think? leave a comment below) in case you are wondering JAMJO was started by myself JOn and my good auld chum JAMes a few years back having been nearly driven to wits end in the magical cuckoo land of the music industry…not that we have packed away our guitars and drums…on the contrary…but that’s after hours when the laptops have been put to rest for the day….for now this is the place for updates on new projects, [...]
