A day among the bluebells: how nature nurtures creativity

We are so lucky to live and work in such a beautiful part of the world. A quick lunchtime walk locally is a way to recharge the batteries, keep work stresses in perspective, and take time for the important thinking and digesting stage of writing.

In the early stages of a big writing project it can feel you are surrounded by so many words, so much information, it’s hard to know where to start. But quietly at the back of your mind, cogs are whirring.

Sometimes a good night’s sleep will do it. Sometimes popping out for a coffee.

But there’s nothing quite like a bit of fresh air, sunshine, and nature to really open up the creative part of your brain and let the ideas take shape.

Together we can make sparks fly

Announcing our range of affordable, mobile-ready websites for small businesses… with added sparkle.

Kindlemix Communications has recently launched a new sister site, Spark Sites, promoting our range of web packages aimed at small businesses and start ups. This is in addition to the online work we already do through Kindlemix, where we work with a range of bigger clients across the UK.

New customers who book a Spark Sites web package before Christmas 2016 can benefit from a massive 25% discount.

Spark Site’s ethos is simple: we want to help small businesses flourish by providing affordable, mobile-ready websites that are beautifully designed, with sparkling copy.

We build sites in Squarespace and WordPress (using professionally designed templates and themes) and use our wealth of experience and knowledge to help refine and develop your content.

Spark Sites is the brainchild of Kindlemix’s Creative Director, Anne Tregoning. ‘I just really wanted to develop a simple offering that was affordable for small businesses, but meant they would still be able to benefit from our knowledge and expertise,’ she says. ‘Using Squarespace templates as a starting point saves a lot of time meaning we can put together sites quickly for businesses and add value in the copy, imagery and SEO.’

Spark Sites has already produced new sites for local businesses in mid-Wales, including Brecon Milk, Data Orchard and the Hours Cafe and Bookshop. Watch out for several more currently in the pipeline.

Visit www.spark-sites.co.uk to find out more about the web packages and see examples of sites we’ve done so far.

Showcasing our latest website design, Brownscombe Luxury Glamping, as seen in The Times, Guardian and more…

Take a look at our latest website design, Brownscombe Luxury Glamping. We think it really showcases what luxury holiday accommodation is all about, and The Times, Guardian and Manor Magazine seem to agree (to name a few). So far, since it opened in April 2015, Brownscombe Luxury Glamping has been chosen by Ideal Home magazine as one of five ‘extraordinary places to sleep this Summer’ and has been picked by The Times as one of Britain’s ‘Top 20 best wild places to stay’.

Visit the Brownscombe news page to see more of the fantastic reviews and write-ups Brownscombe has had since the website launched and take a look at the rest of the site to see what makes our work stand out from
the crowd.

If you’d like a new website or simply want to update an existing site just drop us a line or give us a call. We’re a friendly team with connections in all the right places and we’re always happy to have a chat. Also, why not have a look at some of the other work we’ve done for small businesses and start ups like Brownscombe Luxury Glamping.

All moved in to our shiny new office in Brecon

Still a bit of unpacking to do, but we’ve finally moved into our lovely new office in the centre of Brecon.

Our new address: Steeple House, Steeple Lane, Brecon LD3 7DJ.

We’re very happy with our new home, and hope it will make it easier for local customers to pop in and see us. We usually have coffee on the go, and probably a few biscuits. If you’re passing, do come and say hello.

Please note our main number has also changed: 01874 611 166.
