The Challenge

Friern Manor is renown for their good reputation in the county. Unfortunately, their previous website did not reflect the elegance and beauty of their venue. Friern approached us for a website redesign to emit their strong reputation. They also needed a platform that was easy to update.

The Solution

We designed a website and developed it using WordPress technology. WordPress CMS allows Friern Manor staff to easily update content to keep the website up to date and relevant to the business. The new website featured a minimal design with a core focus on venue imagery.

As a part of the redesign, we created a new logo for the venue. We moved away from the previous calligraphy style and introduced a cleaner modern typeface. The typeface we used was a web font called Cinzil.

 

The website uses Cardo as a body font to complement the Cinzil headers. We also introduced a colour pallette, which consisted of white, grey and a subtle tone of green as an accent colour.

 

We thought the Friern Manor venue was stunning and really wanted to showcase the beauty on the website. This led us to increase the use of media on the website, whilst keeping the balance of a minimal theme.
