Website Design Project Details
This website project was interesting for a number of reasons. First was that their website content was rich and varied but their design was dated. This was a great chance for us to present their offerings in a clean yet detailed view. Our design goal was to make the site clean and simple while letting the visitor access as much information as possible
They had over time developed some great content and imagery and the task to create the best website design possibly to showcase the great holidays was really interesting. We used the Nextgen Gallery plugin to display the pictures that they had taken down through the years for the different rides
We also developed a new logo for them which incorporated a horse and shamrock without being too cheesy.
The end result was a clean visual with a clever layout using WordPress . It doesn’t look like a standard WordPress site and we experimented with using a sidebar menu for navigation and we think it works well to show prominent information.
The logo was where we started with setting the tone for the site and we avoided the traditional emerald greens while still retaining the Irish feel of the site. They plan to use this logo throughout their branding next year so we will provide a high resolution version of this to them.
