Background

Our client, Hampshire landowner, Barker-Mill Estates wanted to refresh and modernise their existing websites. Analytics data showed that 32% of traffic to both the Barker-Mill Estates and Barker-Mill Foundation websites had accessed the site via mobile or tablet devices – neither of the sites were mobile optimised or responsive so it was time to bring them into the 21st century.

Key project information

  • Over the years content had been added to the site in different ways, with no clear strategy – content needed to be refined and updated easily
  • The user journey had become confusing and lacked a clear focus or objective.
  • Both sites needed to work in harmony and include rich content to aid engagement.

How we assisted

Our first task was to define user objectives and ensure that our site map delivered a seem-less user experience. A more contemporary look and feel helped to facilitate this process and ensure key messages were clear. The designs for each site provided a visual link and complemented each other perfectly.

Both sites were built on an open source content management system, WordPress, facilitating easy maintenance, updates and further future development.

Outcome

Both sites were delivered in 8-weeks and have provided Barker-Mill with a much stronger online presence.
