Graphical Website Design and Development for A Luxury Coastal Retreat near Bude

This luxury coastal retreat occupies an area of outstanding natural beauty overlooking a private coastal beach in Widemouth near Bude, Cornwall. It was decided that the website design would use antique ruby as an ancient colour and anti-flash white as a complimentary colour to portray a coastal seaside look and feel.

After several design alterations we finally reached the right look and feel of a coastal seaside cottage. The next step in the website design process were the final touches/composition. This involved making the graphics look more realistic by implementing light sources and as a result designing the shadows in the right place to give them depth.

To make the website functionality slightly different to the typical accommodation website an interactive ajax calendar was developed. This meant the user could use a graphical seaside interface instead of the typical drop-downs you would see when making online bookings.

This project was undertaken as part of my employment with MD Web Solutions (www.md-websolutions.co.uk). All images and project information published with permission from MD Web Solutions.

Testimonials

As a design company, we have always had our own ideas of how something should look and the style we wanted to use, Dean was great at creating the websites and 3D modelling for our products.

Always readily available for updates and small changes that are constantly needed throughout the development of the site. The work from the start has always been top quality, but as projects have moved on quality has actually improved to levels we hadn’t thought available are now present on our sites.

With limited knowledge on the more technical side of website design such as SEO, Dean was always happy to take the lead and offer help with setting up the parts of the website we hadn’t originally thought of as directly important.

We have worked on many sites with Dean and continually try to keep the websites up to date on the both the Design and Technical sides of it and look forward to working together on future projects.
