A website should reflect who you are and the services you provide.
V-Suites is an upscale corporate housing service. A concept that came to be out of the demand of business travelers looking for more than the standard hotel room while on the job away from home.
In 2016, V-Suites was looking for a new website with the classic checklist of wants and needs: better user experience, responsive, mobile friendly, improved SEO, better mapping capabilities. They called Octane Design.
We met, listened to what they wanted and then got to work. We knew we needed to design a website that would help clarify the V-Suite service offerings and high-end customer experience, while delivering a clean interface for people to easily find properties to rent.
We created a site map, designed mood boards, giving the client options to choose from, and then developed wireframes around the design direction they preferred. We incorporated rolling images on the home page to create visual depth for the user entering the site. We improved and updated drop down menu options for easier site navigation. We incorporated small, concise blocks of text that had a business-fun welcoming tone. We included interactive mapping capabilities so users could simply type in a city name and see properties in that area plotted, as well as a snapshot. We used easy to navigate tabs to help users scan property amenities such as rates, pet policies and more. Plus, we gave the site live chat functionality for questions.
The new V-Suites website launched in 2016. It is clean, vibrant and business casual in its tone, yet exudes a sense of what sets V-Suites apart from the competition, its high-end, customer-centric approach.
The new V-Suites website has raised the bar for corporate housing websites.
