Clients are taking advantage of lockdown to review their digital presence and as a result, we have recently finished the design of two new websites. They are both hosted on the WordPress content management system.
The Mourne Mountain Marathon is Ireland's only two day navigation and endurance event, held every September in the Mourne Mountains, Northern Ireland. This year they celebrated 40 years of the event and needed a new website to take them into 2020 and beyond.
The previous website was very basic with a poor user experience when accessing from a mobile phone. Crucially, the new website is fully optimised for mobile, where over 60% of traffic comes from. It has:
enhanced user experience and navigation
simpler copy and graphics to describe the event to attract new entrants
a news section which is fully integrated with social media
event information including accordion (drop down) FAQs
results section dating back 40 years
SEO (search engine optimisation)
full integration with the Si Entries system
The new website has transformed their digital presence which ultimately led to last year's entry numbers increasing by 40%!
Lagan Valley Cycling Club is a sociable and friendly cycling club based in Lisburn, Northern Ireland. They recently had a name change and rebrand and needed a digital presence to reflect this.
The new website provides clear and simple information about the club, details on how to join, a news section, gallery, integration with Strava and social media.
The challenge was getting new imagery of the club during lockdown, as club meet-ups have been suspended due to COVID-19 restrictions. Fortunately, as part of the rebrand, new kit had been recently delivered to members, so members submitted photos of themselves out in the new kit and photo collages where able to be designed for the website, keeping everything on brand.
