The Design and Development
Morley R.C. needed a website that would refresh their image and predominantly target a younger audience while simplifying their out dated paper-based scoring and update system, which, they found was frequently off target, pardon the pun.
The web design needed to be fresh and modern, while being easily usable by members aged up to 90. Maintaining their professional status and rich history was extemely important. This is why we went with a minimal and straight-to-the-point design, offering new visitors quick access to the most important club information, such as when the club opens for specific events and how to contact or join the club. The website also makes use of a protected members-only section to display personal shooting results, upcoming dates and important documents.
Luckily one of the members, Rob, was a professional photographer, which helped out a bunch with getting amazing photography of the members and club which I was able to use throughout the website design process.
The website was built in WordPress – with an easy-to-use plugin installed which allowed committee members to post club results, accept new member accounts and post important dates to the calendar such as upcoming meetings or important shoot dates with a few clicks of a button.
