The Brief

We were approached with a brief to redesign the existing competition site to better portray the lively nature of the brand and the level of sophistication of the event itself.

The Drawing Board

The previous website laid the ground work for the structure of the new design while the client added to the structure we initially presented, to feature new information in the revised design. We decided the site needed to look lively and energetic to match the nature of the competition, therefore our design called for brighter colour tones and prominent use of imagery.

We wanted users to feel at ease while navigating and therefore re-structured the site to ensure users had easy access to the most crucial information, while also presenting the highlights of the site, which were its’ recipes, in a manner that drew users in to the site.

The designs were organized to keep the site clean and balanced so as to not confuse users but also to serve its’ purpose of highlighting the event.

The Development

The Real High Tea website is one of dynamic nature and needs regular updating of content, therefore the site was developed in wordpress to allow the client to update content with ease. The mobile friendly nature of the site allows user accessibility across all devices and content placement targets the eye of individuals, drawing them to explore beyond the homepage. The clean and organized layout of the site acutely mirrors the nature of the competition.

We worked on the second phase of the development after taking the site live with its’ first phase and we worked together with the team at Dilmah to upload content from the competition on a daily basis till the final date of the competition in order to keep the site current and interactive as the changes came along. Both phases were completed in time for the grand finale of the RHT Competition.


The Brief

To create a dynamic website that mirrors the Tuurya brand identity of affordable luxury and celebrating life.

The Drawing Board

Tuurya is one of the Aitken Spence chain of hotels’ newest ventures and the brand as a whole sought to come off as lively and entertaining, whilst offering customers a chance to experience both luxury and affordability. The site structure and tone were presented to us by the client and we were expected to come up with a design that conveyed their brand identity.

Our designs were structured to make the most of the spaces within the design area, to present information that would entice users and also contribute to portraying the brand identity. The layouts needed to be colourful and bursting with energy while also maintaining clarity so as to not overcrowd the page.

We wanted the images to tell the story of Tuurya, and made room to make the most of the images available to us while placing it strategically to ideally portray the best features of the chain of hotels.

The Development

The Tuurya by Heritance website was interlinked with its two location websites- all three of which were developed with a custom CMS. Our designs made room for a mini clip to tell the story of Tuurya upon visiting the site, and to set the tone of the brand. It was crucial to us that the navigation took place with utmost ease and that the essential information was available to users without any hassle. Our designs ensured that the site looked clear and uncluttered on all devices and provided a smooth user transition from obtaining information to making a booking.

When development was complete we did a final technical and design QC to ensure everything was in order to present to the client. Upon receiving the final approval from the clients’ team the site was ready to be handed for the launch.


The Brief

We were given the task to come up with a web solution that took on the concept of tea and placed it at the center of everyday life, in a way that also portrayed the areas of the brand ventures.

The Drawing Board

Dilmah wanted us to come up with an idea that addressed the idea of tea as a part of everyday life, which would present the best perception of the brand. We were assigned the task of coming up with a unique and captivating website. The site structure had already been presented to us, and we came up with the best way to present the required information.

Of the three options we presented, each tackled the idea from a different point of view. Our designs used vibrant colours on the individually illustrated images to bring to life the concept.

We wanted users to find the website similar to an experience rather than a distant browsing, therefore the homepage was meant to be clear of text and only available on mouse-hover. Every small element of design had something to do with tea in the most subtle sense so as to not look like we were trying too hard to sell the concept. The client opted to go with the third option for development.

The Development

The design was meant to make users feel like a walk through a “tea inspired” street, and therefore the functionality created the effect of moving back and forth through the street. Interactive elements added to making the site come alive which led to creating a curiosity in users to experience the site further. Within each element of design on the home-page, rested a micro-site which was also handcrafted by us, but of a more minimalistic and solely information based nature. The entire site was structured and designed to look good on both PC and mobile, allowing users to access the site from any device.

When we had completed development our technical QC team and our design QC team worked together to ensure that the site maintained its functionality and crisp finish despite the tight deadlines this project had placed before us. . Once the site was ready to go live, and we prepared for the regular site maintenance as per our agreement with the client, as a means of always keeping the site information current.

The client had given us the complete freedom of coming up with our own structure and design to best highlight the information from the old website.

Our design made room for a series of mini-clip to tell the story of Elizabeth Moir School upon entering the site, while the additional illustrations came together to create a lively and colourful homepage which presented only the most quintessential information.

Navigation needed to be simple and direct and the overall design of the website gave way to a generous use of imagery to highlight the many attributes of school life at this institution. The site was designed for both PC and mobile and structured to be user-friendly for even the least tech-savvy users.

The Development

Our designs promoted the idea of multiple video clips of the school, which we developed to change upon every new visit to the site, and would play silently on the homepage. The site was of a more static nature so as to allow individuals to wholly experience the school life of this institution through the images and information available on the site, without diverting their attention.

When development was complete we did a final technical and design QC to ensure everything was in order to present to the client. The client was thrilled with the site and everything was in order to go live within the week.
