Almond Valley Property Centre are a letting agency who offer residential letting and property management services across West Lothian. They required a website that would advertise the various letting services they provide, along with a dynamic feed of the latest available properties.
The Properties for Rent page pulls data in from the Zoopla API and the raw data has been processed and formatted into an attractive and easy to use application. The data can also get filtered with the three dropdown: property type, rent per month and number of bedrooms.
The Tenant Services were designed to explain the tenancy process in bite-sized chunks. The content is broken down into tabs, tables and slideshows so that the customer can be guided through the process.
The typeface used on the website is Noto Sans, which is used in headings and body font. Noto Sans is a strong and simple font, which builds trust with the user. The font is also easy to read, which lends itself well to passages of text.
The colours scheme is predominantly black and white as this ensures easy readability of the text. Red is introduced in background colours as well as button and element active states, as this ties in with the company logo colours and improves website branding cohesion.
The wireframes were created using Balsamiq Mockups and the designs were created using Sketch for Mac. The designs were then shared with the client via the prototyping tool, Invision.
The project makes use of Cloudflare CDN and image optimisation service, Twicpics, which allows page speed to be improved.
Digital assets were also created for the company Facebook page, so that the user has a consistent experience on the new website and updated social media account.
