Hogarths

Website Design | WordPress Multisite

Hogarths are historical yet forward thinking hotels set in the heart of England. Offering comfortable rooms, award winning wedding venues, and restaurants offering locally sourced ingredients served with soul.

Hogarths website no longer visually represented their brand & philosophy. With two locations, Solihull and Stone Manor, they needed an easily managed system that was simple and sleek.

Hogarths had adapted its website over time to meet new goals but felt it was no longer in keeping with the brand and was falling behind expectations and industry standards. Due to recent branding updates and refurbishments, they required a new website that would make them stand out as an industry leader.

Content management was an important factor for Hogarths as they have two locations linked from an umbrella brand website. With a large number of services, information and contact forms it was vital staff could add, update and delete content quickly and easily.

In a very competitive industry, it was vital that the needs of their target audience were met and the user journey was simple and quick. The biggest challenge was taking a large sitemap and making sure every aspect of the business was accessible and converts well.

Using WordPress plus WordPress Multisite we gave Hogarths the ability to manage multiple websites quickly and easily from one single WordPress dashboard.

Following our UX audit, we discovered key areas the new website could improve upon the current website. Primarily increasing bookings/sales, easy to use CMS and to better reflect the current brand. We used personas and user journey flows to identify pain points that we could use as opportunities for improvement. We used this information to improve the hierarchy of the sitemap to focus on user goals and to streamline the user experience for better conversions.

The next step was to bring the brand to life through the design process. We took Hogarth’s brand guidelines and using high-fidelity prototypes provided UX driven concepts. A clean, simple aesthetic, with a modern layout and a pinch of heritage, to truly showcase everything Hogarths had to offer. Designed mobile-first, the website is responsive, considering the needs of users on all devices.

Finally, we developed the website on one of the worlds most popular CMS, WordPress. We added WordPress Multisite to give Hogarths a single dashboard to manage both locations.

The project was integral to our business’s future success and growth. We required both a mobile app and a web application that could integrate to a high level. We are very pleased with the service and final product. SourceCodeStudio is a trusted partner that understands our needs and then exceeds them.

We have worked with SourceCodeStudio in the past, so we reached out when we needed to build a new e-commerce website for our Angel Ventlock brand. The process was very professional, starting with UX/UI designs that matched the brand. Before the development stage began, SourceCodeStudio offered suggestions that ensured the website was built sustainably and could grow with the business.
