Cromarty, Living by the Sea
The project was originally devised as part of the Highlands 2007, Scotlands Year of Culture festival. However, it was also a timely reminder of Cromarty's age-old link with the sea. Stories, anecdotes, memories and poems by people of all ages were gathered, with complementary photographs and artwork prepared, and a book published and sold. A complementary web site was considered as the best medium for disseminating this material across a wider area, and for gathering follow-up comments and opinions.

I just wanted to say what an excellent experience it was, working with Plexus on the 'Cromarty - Living by the Sea' website. You were always so quick, efficient and professional, but combined this with a friendly, "that's no trouble at all" approach that was very reassuring as I raised question after question as deadlines loomed. It goes without saying that the design and operation of the website is first-rate. What I hadn't expected was your willingness to fine-tune it, after the account had been settled, at your own expense.
I know that you regarded this job as a bit different, as it was a community project involving your own community, but I'd recommend you (and shall do so) to anyone, anywhere, wanting to set up something similar. Congratulations, and thank you all once again - especially Colin and Jamie.

Don't underestimate them. The laid-back ‘name your favourite sticky bun’ approach is just their way of getting the message over that real creativity, flair and competence can also go along with being down-to-earth and approachable. So, no ridiculous city-centre pretensions for them. Instead, they concentrate on what’s important: delivering creative solutions that work on the web for clients of every skill level. Read More...
