Grey District, New Zealand
Grey District Council's Official Visitor Website is another of our sites we are proud of.
The council's pre-existing site was dated and required a fresh and more dynamic design. One of the objectives of the project was to promote local businesses and attract tourists to the Grey region. The site includes Business Listings where businesses are able to add individual listings and a function to book accommodation online.
The solution we have created is fun, modern and easy to use and portrays the West Coast as a vibrant, attractive place to visit. A user-focused site, it is aimed at providing better user experiences. An example of this is a useful tool for businesses and tourists where users can search for an activity of place and see its location on Google Maps. We also incorporated a blog to enable the Council to communicate news and events in the region.
Our design team used colour blocking and graphical icons to highlight various sections of the site such as the Webcam, Maps and Weather. The use of quality photography showcases the rugged natural beauty of the West Coast. The site is highly interactive, with the use of dynamic content and scrolling featured areas.
