Curraghmore House is a spectacular tourist location with a rich legacy. The historical estate dates back to 1170 when it was home to the 9th Marquis of Waterford, but that doesn’t mean its website can’t be modern, and that was our mission.
Although we respected many of the fundamental brand elements of Curraghmore House, we had the licence to deliver a brand refresh to ensure the brand matched the new website. The key objective in the client brief was to redesign their outdated website to transform it into a modern and future-proof website.
A Modern Brand and Website.
We lifted the brand colours on the previous site to a deep navy blue and gold colour scheme that highlights the prestigious history of the place. Another element that contributes to the heritage and legacy of Curraghmore House was our serif font choice for the headings. To balance the website and create a necessary modern feel, we selected a sans-serif font for the body text.
From a technical perspective, the front-end optimisation, fully-responsive design and code, and the integration of a booking system brought the historic brand into the present. It wasn’t modernity for the sake of modernity, however. We strategised and created every brand and technical development to increase the revenue of Curraghmore House by attracting more people to the website, engaging them with visually arresting content, guiding them through an online experience, and inspiring them to book.
