Website Design Brief from Thorne Travel

Thorne Travel would like their new website to reflect the company’s personality, current the website is out of date, does not function on mobile devices and is slow. There are very few images around the site, which would help customers get a better idea of the destinations.

Currently the site does have a clear focus on the destinations that are provided, we would also like a section that will help holiday makers find where they would like to go on holiday if they are currently unsure.

A key objective is to develop a booking system that is clear, concise and easy to use and understand.

Working closely with social media platforms, from our blog to Facebook and Twitter, Thorne Travel should present a consistent image across all platforms that actively encourages interaction.

Thorne Travel should come across over as a positive, friendly site that creates a more personal feeling, while remaining professional.
