Sims & Blue


Sims & Blue Ltd are a long-standing Dunedin firm of painters and decorators. They have been providing residential and commercial painting services to Otago and Southland since 1962.

John Sim approached Turboweb because their existing website was out-of-date, hard to update, and no longer met their needs.

Creative Brief

Sims & Blue wanted a great website that would showcase their award-winning workmanship. They wanted to make good visual use of their logos and colours, and for clients to be able to get a really good feel for their work by showcasing some of their work.

The team at Sims & Blue are extremely busy and wanted a web design company that would take care of all the little details for them. As a team of professionals, they know the value of working with a company that provides a total service.


Turboweb created a bright, engaging site which makes good use of pictures and colour. The bright yellow from their logo is carried through into the images used on the home page, which is visually pleasing.

Sims & Blue’s services and projects are highlighted on the home page so customers can jump straight to the information they are looking for. It’s important to have your business’s key information, products, and services linked to from many different places on the site, as you never know which page your clients will land on when they search for your services.

Custom design by Turboweb

The Turboweb Projects Module was an important part of the website design, allowing Sims & Blue to showcase their projects and really show customers the details of their work. As new projects are added to the site they will be automatically added to the Home page to keep their most recent work front and centre.

The site also makes use of a custom Quotes Form. When a client clicks on the 'Request a Quote' button on the home page they are taken to a special contact form that is customised to capture the information that Sims & Blue need to best respond to a quote, rather than the more general contact form found on their contact page. This is a great way to prompt your clients to provide the right information for different requests so you’re well prepared when you follow up with them.
