We started working with the University of Leeds in December 2014 on their impressive Myfood24 online food diary tool.

Myfood24 is a web site developed to assess dietary intake in research studies looking at the relationship between nutrition and health. The database contains 45000 UK specific food products, including generic, branded and supermarket own food items. A comprehensive search engine allows participants to find foods easily, allowing search results to be filtered by brand or category.

Here at Underneath The Stars we've worked with City Red to redevelop their existing Expression Engine site to include new features, be mobile friendly and improve the engagement for SEO.

We have also implemented integration with their CRM system (Insightly CRM).

Approach PR (Ilkley)

Approach PR Ilkley - Homepage

We were delighted to work with the wonderfully talented and clever people at Approach PR in Ilkley to redevelop their company website.

Their previous site looked dated and didn't have the flexibility to be updated by them. We built them a new site with Wordpress as the content management system. We setup custom fields for each section and trained the staff on using and updating the site.

Here's what Approach PR have to say about us
We appointed Mike Ward to develop our website because of his big agency expertise without the big agency price tag. Mike helped us at every stage of the process by giving us design and usability advice without the jargon and giving us realistic timescales and deadlines which made it easy for us to plan an effective website launch. The website has been a great success and has received glowing reviews from clients and suppliers. It is a great window into our world and that is exactly what we wanted. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Mike, he’s a top notch developer and a joy to work with.
