What We Did
Bruce Boats opted to go for our Quick Launch package as they already had most of their content prepared. They were also keen for us to follow a similar 'look and feel' to the Crofton Beam Engines website (also part of KACT) which we had launched earlier in the year.
The project started with a kick-off meeting where we discussed the site structure, pages, images, call-to-actions and any other features the website required. Bruce Boats came to the meeting already prepared with their content enabling us to build a clear vision of the website layout and content flow.
We started the project by creating the pages and navigation and then uploaded all the content that Bruce Boats had provided. We then built the homepage by creating all the sections of content, following a similar layout to Crofton Beam Engines whilst giving Bruce Boats a look and feel in keeping with their own identity.
Once everything was in place we then customised the theme and designed some additional 'highlight' content blocks to give their website a high-impact look and feel. The overall turnaround for this project was two weeks, from content delivery through to the website going live.
Bruce Boats, a branch of the Kennet and Avon Canal Trust (KACT) and the largest provider for the hire of 'accessible' canal boats in the UK, needed a new website that would enable them to showcase their boats and generate more bookings through their website.
Well done for completing our new website in record time, to a very high quality. You understood our brief very well and used your creativity and skills to bring it to life. The reaction from volunteers and hirers has been extremely good. So well done again!
