Rougey Lodge had a very old and basic site that wasn’t doing much to help sell the place. The hostel is only three years old and has an amazing home feel to it. The brief was to show the quality of accommodation along with the fun warming atmosphere that the hostel has to offer. The owner wanted a lot of information to display above the fold staying away from the generic banner image.
I decided to buy a theme for this site as we needed booking functionality and to keep a low budget. I chose a theme that allowed for creative layouts but had all the functions we required. The homepage displays the three main areas that Rougey wished to promote without overloading the design.
