Isles of Scilly Tourism Destination Website
This was one of those dream projects. The Scilly Islands are a very special place (go there and see for yourself!) and to be asked to build the website that promotes them to the world was a great honour. We chose the Drupal development framework to create the website as there were many bespoke "backend" management requirements that needed an enterprise strength framework to provide solid technical foundations.
The project was delivered for Wolf Rock Marketing who project managed the whole shebang brilliantly. It was a challenging project but one of the most enjoyable - and it won an award! the British Destinations Website Homepage Award for 2014!
Here are the judges’ comments:
1st Place – Isles of Scilly – www.visitislesofscilly.com
The judges were highly impressed with the sites bold use of photography, along with a comprehensive navigation structure.
It was nice to see the use of more photography in use within the sub navigation menus to give the user even more of a feel of the destination. The judges also praised how easy it was to order a brochure, a simple, clear link in the header of the site was an excellent addition and something that so many other sites miss.
Further to this, an electronic version of the guide was supplied in a ‘page-turning’ booking format along with a form to order a physical copy.
The site performed excellently on a range of devices including iPads and iPhones, ensuring a pleasant experience for the user regardless of the device they’re using. An outstanding winner.
