Client: Black Peak View, Wanaka holiday house accommodation
Brief: To redesign an outdated website to promote this boutique Wanaka holiday house accommodation.
Helen from Black Peak View approached us after we worked with her on a business website she was involved in. Her holiday house accommodation website was old and in need of modernization.
Bookings for the accommodation primarily come through third-party booking websites, but she still wanted to have her own website where she could better control the content, and provide comprehensive information and images about the holiday house. We embedded the bookings widget into the site, so she could direct people to a page on her own website to make a booking, rather than direct them to another website instead.
We created a simple and easy to navigate website that features the different types of accommodation they offer. Inspired by the lupins and lavender flowers of the Wanaka area, we chose a colour palette of purple, grey and black – with some beautiful images reflecting those tones used throughout the website.
The key call to action needed for the site was for people to either book, or contact them directly. We ensured there was a BOOK NOW button in the navigation, so it is prominent on every page, and we put a phone number in large type in the footer, so make the information easily accessible to website visitors.
At the time they approached us Helen did not have a logo for the business, so we created a simple and elegant logo using a mountain icon and a serif font.
