2017 in a nut shell

  • By Lucy Pepper

2017 was a great and busy year for our team at Arrival. We designed and developed some great responsive websites, branding and print for both new and existing clients. 

The following projects are only a small selection of sites which we’ve worked on in 2017 we are currently working on some equally great projects right now and look forward to further projects throughout 2018.



IT@ Spectrum is an award-winning technology business, with over 30 years' experience providing innovative solutions to print more efficiently and automate business processes.

We were very excited when we had the opportunity to work with such a progressive and renowned business as IT@ Spectrum, having recently moved to a brand new purpose built building on the developing Bridgehead Business Park in Hull they wanted an online presence that reflected their positioning and ambitions. 

A modern, clean and easy to use website with amazing photography. Their professional photography and videos enabled us to create striking big background images which is still a very popular web design trend. The new site includes a bespoke content management system enabling the team to keep the content fresh and updated.

They were thrilled with their new look website and ever improving SEO performance, the print brochures soon followed and the work continues to ensure they stay ahead and on trend with modern marketing opportunities.



We’ve been lucky enough to work with EYG for over 10 years. Our brief for the rewrite was to design a new responsive website which is visually appealing, easy to use and maximising conversions. The new website includes an improved CMS enabling the team to update the content quickly and a simple quick request a quote widget which enables users to easily get a free online quote.

We also support EYG in PR, SEO and Social Media, with the combined services helping ensure they gain local media and trade exposure, and benefit from strong-performing website pages and increased digital sales.

By making major improvements to core product page content and meta content (combined with a new responsive website), EYG enjoyed a year-on-year traffic uplift of 62 per cent. The same period from January 2017 to January 2018 also produced a 42% uplift in new users visiting and browsing their product portfolio.

Having launched a Lifestyle Blog at the beginning of 2017 to discover customers much earlier in the buying process, EYG now publish informative and aspirational articles on a regular basis. This content is also used to form a joined up approach with their eMarketing, PPC and paid social campaigns.



Matthew Limb Estate Agents believe in achieving results by offering a high quality service and a refreshing experience. Integrity, honesty and openness are essential when helping people move. What's more, they want to make the process as stress free and smooth as possible. 

Having enjoyed a great working relationship with Matthew Limb for over 10 years we fully appreciate their requirements and understand the finer details of how they want to received and how they want to portray themselves. They approached us with a view to designing a new website which is visually clean, fresh, stylish to look at and responsive and the results are just that. With a vast amount of properties on the market the site needed to ensure users were constantly kept up to date with the latest properties.



Yorkshire Hip Clinic provides a comprehensive specialist hip service covering all aspects of hip complaints across age groups. Joint replacement expertise extends to knee replacement, replacement of failed knee replacements and sports related knee conditions.

We were tasked with creating a high quality and reflective responsive website aimed at potential patients with an emphasises on enabling the users to gain easy access to the case studies, surgeon information and on how to go about making an appointment.

The end result is something we are very proud of and the feedback Yorkshire Hip Clinic have had since the launch has been fantastic. 



Having provided private dental treatment for over 35 years Lund Dental is one of the longest established Private Dental Practices in Hull. With a friendly team and clean, modern facilities, their aim is to provide affordable, high quality general dental care and cosmetic dentistry to the people of Hull and the surrounding villages.

As an established client for many years we were instructed to develop a new responsive website and bring in line their online presence to the standard that matched their work and reputation. The new website is now far more reflective of their standing and the responsive performance side of the website has had a big impact on their current clients and potential customers.

With DJ's involved like Dean Mac, Danny T, Ben Rainey, Lawrence James and many more providing fresh weekly Mashups and mixes.

This project was a first for us entering into the music sector, the backend requirements and e-commerce shopping side of it was very normal to us but the design team really enjoyed working on something so different from our usual genres. The early success of this has been phenomenal and it continues to grow every week, we are in discussions currently with other similar platforms which will please our design guys….
