Brad has designed two fantastic MailChimp templates for us. He has taken into account our existing online look, and created well styled and very usable templates. Brad understands that not everyone is a technically inclined and has provided great advice with regards to format / readability/ usability. He was also able to provide important statistical information with regards to our audience and the systems they might be using to read our broadcasts. He is flexible with his designs and has actively sought feedback throughout the design process. I thoroughly recommend him and will continue to work with him in the future.

The Client

The Royal Hobart Showground is a multipurpose site located in Glenorchy, Tasmania, Australia which hosts various events throughout the year, most notably the Royal Hobart Show. The Showground also offers a Motorhome Park, Venue Hire facilities and a Market each Sunday.

In addition the Royal Hobart Showground office manages external events which include the Royal Hobart Wine Show, Royal Hobart Fine Food Awards, Australian Fruit Wine Show and Vineyard of the Year.

The Project

This website is a redesign of the Hobart Showground website active between mid-2010 and mid-2012.

In this version the primary intent was to deviate from the rectangular design of its predecessor and bring greater focus to content updates. To enable this, the slideshow which formerly cycled through slides representing each of the Showground business units now displays the important content updates. Meanwhile, the links to the business unit websites have been relocated beneath the slideshow in a circular button formation, somewhat reminiscent of the Olympic rings.

This version is Worpdress driven to provide features allowing the client to update the content of the webpages from their end. It also offers search capability allowing website visitors to search for content by entering keywords into a search field built into the website’s navigation.
