This site is te-awa.org.nz, The Great New Zealand River Ride, an outdoors project based on New Zealand’s largest rvier, the  Waikato.

Urban Legend web was contracted by Cube Media to install and configure wordpress, code an original theme using that publishing platform, and based on supplied graphics, and add functional extensions.

The site features a JQuery slider on the front page, a JQuery-based drop-down menu, custom widgets, and customised plugins, including a subscription service.

The Designers Library

This site, The Designers Library, is for a soft-furnishings ( curtains , blinds etc ) company in Hamilton, New Zealand.

It is designed by CubeMedia, and converted into a fully-functional WordPress – powered website by Urban Legend Web.

It uses a JQuery – based slider for the slideshow on the front page, and a semi-transparent background for the centered content area. A combination of native WordPress abilities, plugins, and customised templates drive the site.

NZ Business for Sale

This site aims to help sell a Christchurch, New Zealand B & B.

It is designed and coded with an eye to search engine positioning, and the European market.

It needed a simple but elegant design reflecting the hotel, and business itself, and encourages expressions of interest via a dynamic contact page.

Easinet

This site is for a Whangarei ISP which contracts Urban Legend web to provide website development and design.

The aim was for an effective, fast-loading, and simple design, as befitted the state of browsers at the time, and an emphasis on content.

It uses a flash animation on the landing page, and contains copies of newspaper articles for new computer users.
