Small Local Garage
"Garage and Classic Car Emporium"
Blakeney Garage situated along the Norfolk Coast is a family-owned business showcasing a host of classic cars and motorbikes whilst offering MOTs, servicing and repairs from a freshly renovated 100-year-old building. They also provide friendly fuel sales from the forecourt, proudly keeping the local community, businesses and visitors to the area on the road.
Est. 1919, the business has once again been built from the ground up
In 2019, Blakeney Garage marked its centenary year with an expansive restoration project whereby much of the original façade was restored. The workshop has also been completely refitted with the latest facilities for MOT, servicing and repairs. The renovation also included a new fuel forecourt, on-site café and classic car showroom. Blakeney Garage needed a new website to reflect these changes and showcase not only their expertise but true love and enthusiasm you can feel for Blakeney and it's automotive heritage.
After thorough research into the client's needs, we designed and developed a bespoke Wordpress information-lead website aimed at achieving these goals. The new website provided the client with the ability to easily update the information going forwards using the intuitive Wordpress CMS (Content Management System). The additional inclusion of "Events" and "News" post-types also helped the client keep their customers informed quickly and easily.
During the design phase, we looked to incorporated their existing branding to make sure the new website reflected the customer's business and heritage. We expanded the branding across all elements of the website to make a unique and enjoyable experience.
The outcome was a typically British feeling website featuring bright colourful images, classic colours and fonts packed with heritage. The overall appearance of the website aimed to echo Blakeney Garage, with a mix of modern and just an inkling of heritage.
"Having successfully used Source Code Studio (as part of the Green Duck Family) for a variety of websites over the best part of a decade they were the obvious choice when we needed a new website for Blakeney Garage. They have done an incredible job and given us exactly the website we needed – somehow working out what we wanted when we weren’t that clear ourselves. They have done this with minimal input from us and have managed to meet some very challenging deadlines."
