Our latest work

Beauty Bay - Edited

Working with the UK’s leading beauty and cosmetics retailer, Beauty Bay, on their 2019 relaunch and rebrand, we updated and cleaned up their old WordPress installation. With excessive plugins and outdated code, there was plenty of work to be done to align the site with the latest version of WordPress. FireCask implemented the full pixel-perfect design refresh to fit into the new Beauty Bay branding.

Kennedy Wild Bird Food

Our full-service offering has helped Kennedy Wild Bird Food to increase their visibility, build brand awareness and attract their target audience to the website. What’s more, the launch of the interactive Birdspotter tool allowed for greater user engagement too.

Toys for a Pound

The Kids Toy Generator is an interactive tool which recommends a variety of toys based on answers provided by the user. It not only showcases our client’s vast product range, but it also helps to encourage the buyer journey which, ultimately, influences the bottom line. This was a fun and exciting project designed to provide an engaging user experience whilst driving sales at the same time.

123-Reg Testimonial

When we knew we were ready to re-focus and re-launch our content offering, we knew exactly where to turn. The expertise and in-depth knowledge of WordPress shown by Alex and his team were second to none and that was important in making sure we went beyond more than just a change of theme.
- Tim Fuell, Blog Editor

Alex began consulting with the Amy Winehouse Foundation just after its formation. He has been able to not only help with the Foundation's website but has also become a valuable person to liaise between the Foundation and other organisations we work with and/or support.

Better Bathrooms Testimonial

When looking for ways to engage our customers during our peak period, we approached the team at FireCask for expert SEO and social support.

The Liquor Store Testimonial

We’ve had a close working relationship with FireCask for a while now and we couldn’t be happier with the results! Big thanks to the team for moving our site to WordPress - it’s exactly what we needed to take more editorial control. They took the time to understand what it is that we wanted and the finished product is a true testament to the brilliant work that they do. We also opted for the ongoing site hosting, maintenance and general support that FireCask provides, and we’ve had absolutely no issues with this service either. Looking forward to seeing what the future holds!
- Doug Waldron, Owner

Asemblr Testimonial

Alex and the team at FireCask exceeded our expectations when we underwent a rebrand. We spoke to a lot of branding agencies before we chose FireCask, and the main reason was their process and their ability to be able to understand what we wanted from the rebrand. I would not hesitate to recommend Alex and his team to anyone wanting to look at branding.
- David Lovett-Hume, CEO

Henshaws Testimonial

Henshaws are extremely pleased with Firecask's web development and customer service. Even as a smaller customer we feel very looked after and listened to. They are knowledgeable, creative, very responsive and Alex keeps his attention on his customers. I highly recommend them and Alex.
- Deirdra Barr, Head of Marketing

AXYZ Testimonial

FireCask performed a quick turnaround, redesigning and redeveloping our site, migrating our outdated CMS to WordPress all in a 10 week period. Since the launch of the site in December 2016, they have maintained the site and it has felt like they are an extended arm of AXYZ rather than an external agency. FireCask far exceeded our expectations when it came to redesign, redevelop, maintain and advise us on best practices for our site as well as their level of service.
- Robert Marshall, VP Marketing

Headspace Testimonial

Headspace have been working with FireCask since June and they have been an absolute pleasure to deal with. They offer advice, flexibility, creativity, are full of proactive ideas and their team are friendly and have knowledgeable specialists in every area. Crucially they really understand the Manchester space and enabled us to create beautiful marketing projects. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to any business.
- Jonathan Hausmann, Head of Marketing

MOMA Foods Testimonial

We’ve been working with Firecask for over a year now and don’t know where we’d be without them. They came on board at a crucial moment in the MOMA brand redesign to kick start our new website which included a brand new eCommerce function. We’ve seen consistent improvement month on month of both our search rankings and our conversion funnel. They go above and beyond to really understand the industry and keep on top of worldwide trends and insights. It’s also great to have an agency partner that is flexible and can adapt their delivery styles to suit their client’s needs.
- Andi Sumner, Marketing Manager

Orbitz International Testimonial

Alex is without doubt one of the UK's best-known experts in the field of WordPress development, having produced outstanding work for us here at Expedia Affiliate Networks - and furthermore having published some of the best plugins we use on our corporate site. I can without reservation recommend Alex and his company for any development needs you may have in the PHP/Wordpress world, on top of his undoubted expertise he is also a great guy to work with!

Storebox Testimonial

We started working with Firecask in early 2016 and they have done a great job in helping our digital marketing 'grow up'. As a small company that is experiencing solid growth, we needed to professionally develop and execute our marketing strategy but were not in a position to do this in-house. FireCask have been the perfect solution for us by taking a real 'owners' view of our marketing and helping drive sales to our new sites. Would definitely recommend them.
- Michael Conway, Director

Communication was clear and super prompt throughout the process, it was a pleasure working with Alex, Tyla and Max. Highly recommended!
