Yeah…another website launch! This time it is for our long standing clients, Scottish Curling (formerly the Royal Caledonian Curling Club…we’ll get to that).
We have been working with Scottish Curling for a number of years on various projects such as the Try Curling initiative and creating a brand for the Scottish Championships – check out our case study. Along the way we inherited their old website. While the old website initially met their needs, they realised that they had out-grown it. Not only that, they discovered that to move forward, they may need to leave the Royal Caledonian Curling Club behind and progress under Scottish Curling.
A big step that we are proud to be part of!
In terms of the website, the web team at Scottish Curling were frustrated at the lack of functionality with the CMS. Often requiring technical assistance any time they wanted to make simple changes. With that in mind, we set about creating a simple to use WordPress interface that gave them flexibility to alter home page components and menus. Visually, we kept it simple. An issue on the old site was the difficulty in navigating the site. Curling is a very inclusive sport and we had to ensure the website met the needs of their wide ranging membership. A clean look and easy to use menu should ensure things are a lot easier going forward.
