The client, Discover Penrith, functions to promote and market the town to both tourists and residents. Alongside functioning as a hub for local events, activities, and business partnerships, Discover Penrith also provides sponsorship to develop and support culture within the town. Some of the most prolific events that Discover Penrith has been involved with include Penrith on a Plate, Winter Droving, and Penrith Arts Festival.
Working closely with the client, we outlined the framework for the new website, from designs to determining what type of content would be necessary for the site and how it would be presented. Our developers implemented optimisation tactics across the site, ensuring responsiveness and speed, while also adding security across the domain using an SSL certificate.
We also built a dedicated business directory, creating an interactive facility where members can post events, and in turn the postings can be easily filtered to allow users to find what they’re looking for quickly. We also created a secure members login facility, allowing users to edit their profiles/events they’ve posted. Finally, we made it simple to submit an event listing for the site, generating a form open to both members and the general public.
