How We Improved Usability with a Bespoke WordPress Website


Dirty Design approached us needing a WordPress website that not only reflected their brand identity but also engaged users with interactive elements and seamless mobile responsiveness.

The Brief

Dirty Design’s original website was developed on WordPress but lacked the necessary flexibility to showcase their diverse content effectively.

The main goal of this project was to translate the Figma design Dirty Design provided into a fully-functional and dynamic WordPress website. The new website needed to host a range of media from animated gifs, immersive videos, various illustrations as well as improving the usability for administrators.

The Solution

The new website was developed utilising our own proprietary starter template. This template provided a solid foundation while allowing for extensive customisation through custom-built Gutenberg blocks.

To create a seamless user experience across all devices, we developed various features to enable responsive controls throughout the site to ensure optimal viewing on desktops, tablets, and smartphones.

  • Responsive video formats: Videos adjust from landscape to portrait mode for mobile users, ensuring uninterrupted viewing.
  • Interactive elements: Animated illustrations triggered by user interactions (hover states) add an engaging touch and enhance the website’s visual appeal on all screen sizes.

Hosting on our web server, the website is also kept up-to-date, security and optimised.

Impact of a well-developed WordPress website

“Whilst undergoing an internal rebrand, we approached Nebula to build our new site following on from our design. David and his team crafted our website to allow for flexibility with our case study pages, giving us complete design control and the ability to tailor the layout of pages within the block system structure for our diverse needs. The ability to add new pages independently is a crucial feature for us, and the website Nebula have built allow us to do this with ease.

Working with them was truly delightful throughout the development phase, as they were consistently available to assist with any last-minute requests. The new website is exactly how we envisioned it, thank you Nebula!”
