March 29th, 2011Update for Gareth Byrne

We have just completed an interesting update for Gareth Byrne Photography.

The update changes the display mechanism of Gareth's site from a user-controlled slideshow to thumbnails, while behind-the-scenes the site allows Gareth to dictate the display sequence of the images via an innovative drag & drop control mechanism.

March 12th, 2011IPPA Happy Faces Day

We'd like to take this opportunity to wish all of the participants in Happy Faces Day 2011 the very best this coming Saturday.

OnSight is proud to be a supporter of this annual event which, since it first launched in 2006, has raised almost €250,000 for its chosen charities.

Our contribution to this year's event has been a significant enhancement of the Happy Faces Day website, which has allowed participants to upload details of their own events, with the search facility offering visitors the ability to choose between specific photographers, their location, and their preferred date.

Check out the Happy Faces Day site for yourself, and pop along to your local participating photographer this Saturday; it's a great event, a great cause, and you could get yourself a top-class portrait for just €25! AND help Cystic Fibrosis Ireland in the process.

February 23rd, 2011Vasco a go-go!

The stunning new website for Vasco Dine Wine Deli & Adventure Centre is up and running!

Vasco is an exciting new café & restaurant in the charming village of Fanore, Co. Clare. Situated in the heart of the Burren and enjoying spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean, Aran Islands and surrounding countryside, Vasco also has an associated Eco Adventure Centre from which you can enjoy outdoor activities and explore The Burren.

Having previously had a Flash website - with all of the ensuing issues in relation to lack of updateability and lack of search-engine visibility - Vasco's owners, Karen & Ross, approached OnSight with a view to acquiring the best of both worlds; the resulting website contains a number of innovative interactive features, is comparable with a Flash website, and uses different variations of social media plugins depending on the visitor's screen resolution.

The Google Map feature provides potential clients with comprehensive directions to this exciting Deli & Adventure Centre, while the content of both the main site and its Adventure Centre sub-site can be easily updated.

We are delighted with the end result, which is launched just in time for the beginning of the 2011 tourist season. It shows both what can be done on all levels without Flash and its limitations, and with our innovative approach to pushing the boundaries of what most people understand non-Flash websites to be like.
