Hedingham Castle website development

Hedingham Castle

Working in collaboration with MacDonald Orr Design, a graphic design company based in the Scottish Highlands, we developed a brand new website for long-standing client Hedingham Castle.

Overview

Launched in 2018, this is the second digital presence we’ve created for this historic landmark destination. The first website we developed for Hedingham Castle exceeded all expectations and the client was keen to continue our work together and build on their success.

Approach

With traditional botanical illustrations taken directly from historical archives, the design is a nod to the castle’s rich heritage. Simple in terms of design and structure, it utilises old and new imagery to communicate the beauty of the surroundings and vibrant story of the castle and grounds.

The client was keen to maintain the website on an easy-to-use system, one that was familiar to them and that could be used by other staff members, and so we opted for the WordPress platform, which has been fully customised with integrated ticketing, an events calendar and history timeline.

The quality of the work and attention to detail have been outstanding. The new site transcends what we even hoped for, let alone imagined, and the team have been a joy to work with; efficient, patient and resourceful. In all, you define the way these things should be done.

Outcome

With the launch of both websites, we have seen increases in website hits, enquiry levels and ticket booking. By working closely with the client to analyse statistics and digital heat maps, we have been able to continually refine the site and respond to their needs and those of and the customers.
