About this website
I designed and built this website in 2014 as a redesign for a dog walking and pet sitting business. The client wanted to stand out from the crowd with a fresh and contemporary website.
Knowing her personally quite well, I felt bright, bold colours would suit her outgoing personality and friendly, personable manner. I combined these with earthier tones for a back-to-nature feel – she’s an advocate of natural dog food and training methods.
The previous site was confusing and needed a major overhaul. I took a content-first approach and prioritised the content the user would be most likely to need. In addition, I gave significant consideration to mobile issues, including things like providing a large hit area on the buttons, as many clients would want fast contact information while on-the-go.
This was the first full website I built with Bootstrap.
The client takes beautiful photos when she’s out walking and sends them to clients. I thought it would be great to show them off on the website, to really emphasise the personal level of service.
