What We Did
Firstly the project was separated into bite-sized chunks, allowing us to plan each of the 7 days and maximise the time that Kate had to spend with us. We asked graphic designer Silkin Tan to design a set of logo's that could be used together for each section of Kate's website, using a palette inspired by the stunning blue and aqua colours of the Turkish coastline where many of her retreats take place.
On the first day of the project, Jo helped Kate set-up her domain name and hosted WordPress account as well as the purchase of the plugin (WooCommerce) that would be used for the bookings. She then installed the Genesis theme Market Pro and all other necessary plugins, ready to start building the website.
With everything in place, Kate came into the office to work with Leeann and start building the website. Leeann and Kate worked together over two days to build the pages, navigation, upload content, resize and optimise images, and build the forms in order to get the website ready for further development. Once the content was all in place Jo spent the next three days configuring and developing the bookings, and then finally the theme was customised and re-styled to work with Kate's branding. The project then went through a review phase, followed by WordPress training so that Kate would be able to add retreats and courses and manage her website going forward.

Wiltshire based Kate was looking for a multi-purpose website that would promote her luxury detox retreats, provide bookings for courses and retreats, and showcase her expertise in juicing and nutrition. With tight timescales and budget, we designed her a 7 day (extended) quick launch package so that she could be up-and-running with her events in time for the imminent arrival of the new year.
The Team at Callia Web were brilliant at designing and creating my new website. We worked together at their offices so that we could quickly and easily get the website I wanted without lots of emails back and forth. I would highly recommend them.
