The King of Shaves Company

Corporate CMS website with clean lines and ease of use for mass information...
I have worked for King of Shaves for over a 15 years producing websites, eCommerce solutions, micro sites and custom coded projects. Added to this I have designed presentations, showreels and print based work.

In 2007 they invited me to pitch for their corporate website. It had to be a CMS so they could update it easily. It needed to be clean and simple to use with a view to hosting mass information and mixed media. I won the pitch! Work began and three months later the project was completed on budget. The website is brimming with articles and information. The elegant design enables ease of navigation for interested visitors and more importantly, investor relations. It is based on a MySQL database and offers an easy route to creating pages with design flair.

King of Shaves compete head-on with brands like Gillette and Wilkinson Sword. Founded in 1993, they are regarded as a true entrepreneurial success. In under two decades they have grown from a UK based kitchen table business to a global enterprise with a retail presence throughout the nation. Not satisfied with it’s UK success, the King of Shaves now operates in international territories: Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Saudi Arabia, South Africa and the USA.

The site is semi-retired as of 2016 and was no longer updated. A decade after its launch it was permanently retired due to King of Shaves reviewing their corporate direction.
