Drupal Commerce site for Moscow bakery
We were commissioned to create a Drupal Commerce based web site for a top Moscow bakery.
The site is a custom themed multilingual site offering online ordering, delivery slot choice alongside recipes and other product information.
The Drupal Commerce framework is an ideal platform for the creation of an online shop and with a degree of customisation provides an excellent base for this multilingual online bakery.
Drupal Commerce for Dickies Streetwear
We were engaged to create a socially linked ecommerce site for a new brand range of Dickies clothing - Dickies Streetwear. The brief called for a high performance state of the art site that engaged a growing customer base in the streetwear market. So rather than create a run of the mill ecommerce catalogue site we wanted to create a rich user experience based around news and social media with purchasing opportunities presented across the site.
We were engaged by Pelgrow UK Ltd to develop an online e-commerce solution for their network of highly successful high street pharmacies in London and across the UK. We were tasked with the design and building of the YourPharmacy brand through the design and creation of an online e-commerce store.
Update: we have now combined this site with our main site! And all the articles are available in the one site.
We wanted to create a home for our knowledgebase and created the website technology.blue-bag.com. Here we provide a range of articles and posts covering issues from using CMS systems such as Drupal through to security articles covering securing access to your website.
Species Protection Legislation
Over ten years ago when we started creating web sites and applications to manage biodiversity related information we needed a public website to act as a host for these projects. UKWildlife.com was created to provide web space for not for profit Biodiversity and conservation projects and provide resources for biodiversity projects.
UK BIODIVERSITY Action Planning
Produce a first version of a web site to highlight the work undertaken by organisations in the UK supporting the International Convention on Biological Diversity.

Encryption of 1:50,000 Ordnance Survey maps for Recorder
To enable the secure distribution of the 1:50,000 Ordnance Survey map series for use with the Recorder 2000 application. The maps were to be encrypted and supplied on CD. Users of the CD set should be able to apply for unlock keys for maps, to which they access, by email, fax or post. Once unlocked, the maps should be automatically installed for use with the Recorder 2000 software.
To create a vertical shrink wrapped application to perform robust currency conversion within Microsoft Office applications for the Euro changeover in Europe.
The resulting application comprised a suite of tools integrated within Word and Excel. Currency conversion rates were managed centrally and can be used to control a network of installations.
The National Biodiversity Metadata Index
To create the foundation for a metadata standard to be used across organisations working together for the conservation of biodiversity. In addition to the production of a ’standard’ the client commissioned a metadata collection exercise to ‘pump prime’ the initiative. The client also required a dynamic web site to show case the metadata collected.
