portfolio : Open Road Adventure
Open Road Adventure Ltd discovered cornerpiece after seeing the website of one of our previous clients, Top Signs. As they were starting up a new VW camper hire company based in Haltwhistle, Northumberland, they needed a website to show off the vans and give travel ideas & suggestions. A main requirement of the site was to display the availability of the campers and allow bookings to be made and paid for directly from the website. In addition the site was to have a scrapbook look and feel to it with liberal use of graphics and photos, numerous layers and various items stuck, stapled and pinned amongst the content.
Cornerpiece firstly advised and registered a small portfolio of domain names for the business. We then followed an organic process of design drafts and feedback throughout the build of the website with bits being added or changed until the final look was achieved. The site was developed around our CMS (Content Management System) to allow client updates to all of the site content including photo uploads to the gallery which automatically resizes full images and creates thumbnail images. Bespoke Booking and Payment System modules were created to manage the availability and booking of the campervans and to accept online payments. The Booking System allows bookings to be made from both the customer facing website and also full management of the bookings from the back end CMS. Our Payment System was integrated with SagePay to provide a secure method of accepting payments whilst complying with PCI DSS guidance.
We are extremely happy with how the website has turned out, and more importantly so are Open Road Adventure Ltd!
When searching for a web designer we wanted someone local to keep things close to home so that we could meet to discuss our requirements. We took a look at the work cornerpiece had done and liked what we saw.
It turned out that all the communication was done by email and phone with meeting in person/travelling kept to a minimum and it worked out fine. When we projected our requirements it all came together nicely. We are really happy with the final result and think the look of the website will sell our services well. Very helpful and very well explained! Thanks.
