Lucy approached Design Hero to design a new brand that would reflect the stunning seaside location of this unique holiday rental property on Islay, and build a new website that would not only encourage online bookings but would also save admin time and let Lucy get back to building her business!
This isn’t our first rodeo:
Design Hero has worked on Islay before for another holiday rental booking website for Leodamais. We also created another brand for holiday rental business on Islay so we knew this would need a different approach, with a fresh approach and distinct brand design to help Lucy carve out her own niche on Islay.
At Design Hero our designers eagerly got to work designing a new brand for the holiday rental business, while our web developers started on designing one of the best online booking website in the UK, nevermind just Islay!
Lucy asked Design Hero to come up with a brand design that would reflect the stunning seaside location of the holiday accommodation and also tie in with the “new England” style decor of the property.
The new brand “Islay Seashore” is built around the iconic Carraig Fhadda lighthouse nearby; the holiday rental property commands ideal panoramic views of the bay and the nearby lighthouse.
Thew new logo design fo the holiday house is a simple but iconic “stamp” style logo, using a palette of soft blues and seashore imagery to transport the user to the unique setting on Islay.
We’ve built an amazing new online booking website which not only looks great, but helps Lucy manage her holiday rental business with ease;
No more bulky admin and manual booking systems, no more forking out a slice of the profit to AirBNB with every booking!
The new online booking website handles…
The new online booking website on Islay lets customers book seamlessly through the website, and handles all booking functions automatically, taking the stress off of Lucy to let her run her business!
The new online booking website begins with a subtle video intro of gentle lapping waves, to ease the user into the seashore setting of the holiday accommodation
We’ve sprinkled in our usual marketing magic to help the new online booking website sing! these customer testimonial snippets help encourage extra bookings on the new online booking website.
The new branded holiday accommodation website promotes the local wildlife and highlights the fantastic and unique location of the booking accommodation
Lucy can manage her own bookings online via the backend of the site, with a seamless online booking process that manages online bookings and reduces her time dealing with admin.
The new holiday website uses a distinct “New England” style in line with the new brand design, and promotes the stunning seaside location of the holiday home.
We’ve highlighted all the key features of the new holiday accommodation on Islay with branded icons and graphics
We’ve also provided useful info for visitors to the new online booking website with lots of things to see and do on Islay around the self catering accommodation
Design Hero has created unique branded graphics for the new online booking website, including this stunning panorama of the local lighthouse- a landmark feature and attraction for visitors to the house.
I have recently had the pleasure of working with Nick at Design Hero. I took time researching and choosing an expert to design and build the website for my fledgling business and am so glad I settled on Design-Hero. I recognised the need for an impressive website from the outset and liked the look and functionality of some of the sites which Nick had already developed. Nick listened carefully to my aims and ideas and was infinitely friendly, patient and approachable throughout. I was very impressed with Nick’s response times and he delivered the final product within the timescales set, despite me changing my mind on some of the detail several times! Nick’s prices reflect the work put in and I have no doubt that this early investment in a professional website will significantly increase sales and save me a huge amount of admin time from the off. I would wholeheartedly recommend Design-Hero to anyone looking for web design. Give Nick a call, have a chat – there’s no hard sell to be put off by, just a very nice guy who really knows his stuff!
