This week we created a Slideshow on behalf of our client Symphonical. We have written for them and proofread their copy before, but this is not only our first Slideshow for Symphonical, it is our first Slideshow period.
To create this we used Google Slides, using Canva for the graphical elements. All in all we are quite pleased with our first attempt and it was interesting work boiling down a whole long form blog post into essential bullet points. It was also a great creative collaboration between everyone at Hermit Studio and Symphonical.

Over the course of the last few years we have been experimenting and training in ASP.NET, C#, jQuery, HTML5, and a little Umbraco. We have also just started working with mobile web development and responsive design. We are now at the stage where we looking for small projects to start building up our portfolio that include examples of these skills. A lot of our work so far has been in back-end systems that are not made public, so we want to start creating sites we can show off to others.
We intend over the coming years to start replacing a lot of our old PHP/CMS sites into custom made ASP.NET/C# sites as time permits. This is to provide better functionality, themes, and content strategy for our projects. Clients using the PHP/Drupal/WordPress websites we developed for them will be given the option to upgrade in due course.
As things develop we will post further updates on this blog. If you are interested in getting a quote email your specification to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
One year, one month, one week on from the beginning of Hermit Studio as a business and it’s time to refocus. We decided to re-write our message by updating all the content on our website; resetting our main focus to Web development. The slogan, as you may have noticed, has changed from Creative Works From Introverts to Web Development and Content Consultants.
If you re-read our new About page, you can see how we have reshaped our core services in a more defined way. Instead of the long list of things we can do, Website – Games – Apps – Publications – Photography – Music , we decided to focus on Web Development as our brand message for Hermit Studio.
Here is a little quote:
So please re-read the Hermit Studio site again if it has been a while since you last visited, because it has likely changed a bit since then.
As some of you already know our studio doors officially opened today as the start of trading began. There wasn’t much to record in our first entry to the cash book beyond our first business trip to get a remote control for the camera and a new work mobile (this is so we can also develop apps for the Android market as well as iOS). However the accounting books are now done and the day is over, with a satisfied sense that the business is finally real. Yay!
We are of course still in development for our first game but you can keep up to date with any news at our Hermit Studio Games Blog, or any of the other project divisions listed on our Projects Page.
