August was a busy month at InsideOut for launching responsive website designs and each has its own story.
Read on to learn how we worked with our clients on new B&B websites for a renovated inn on beautiful Tripp Lake and a family-oriented inn on Cape Cod as well responsive web design upgrades for the Bed and Breakfast Association of Kentucky and a charming inn in historic Port Townsend, Washington.
All of these responsive web design examples use HTML5 and CSS3 to adapt their layout to look their best no matter what device is being used and each has a “sticky” navigation menu that travels down the page with the visitor as the scroll though the page content.
Responsive Web Design Examples – New Website Designs
Wolf Cove Inn (Poland, Maine)
Roy and Suzanne became the new owners of Wolf Cove Inn on scenic Tripp Lake last December. Two things they were sure of: they would close the B&B through the winter for renovations and they would launch a new website with a new web host. We welcomed Wolf Cove Inn as a managed web hosting client at the end of January and got to work on updating their old website to reflect recent changes while also starting work on their new custom website. Since the inn was under renovation, the inn owners, their photographer Christian Gianelli, and our design lead Beth Edwards had to be flexible and creative in getting and using photos over a period of months as renovations were completed. Graphic design manager Jim McCauley converted their bitmap logo to a beautifully rendered vector file so that it could be used online and also for any print materials.
Woods Hole Passage Bed and Breakfast (Falmouth, MA)
InsideOut Solutions representatives Pat McCauley and Jack Waknitz met with Woods Hole Passage Bed and Breakfast owners Martha and Julie at the PAII 2014 Innkeeping Conference & Trade Show to discuss their need for a new website design and a managed web hosting solution from InsideOut Solutions.
Martha & Julie wanted to showcase the unique family- and kid-friendy nature of their Cape Cod B&B and Beth Edwards crafted a website design that does just that with a clean, fun, yet elegant design that always looks its best no matter what device is used to view it.
Responsive Web Design Examples – Upgrades to Existing Designs
Bed and Breakfast Association of Kentucky (BBAK)
InsideOut Solutions has been the designer, developer and host of the Bed and Breakfast Association of Kentucky website for the past five years. During that time, BBAK has worked with us to make regular improvements to the website by adding new features for their member B&B inns and adding a WordPress blog.
By the start of summer they were ready to take their website to the next level with a responsive web design upgrade, which included upgrading the navigation menu to include sub-page drop-downs and adding Google maps of in location’s to the site’s regional pages.
Blue Gull Inn (Port Townsend, WA)
Blue Gull Inn loved the WordPress website design we launched three years ago, but they also knew its aging code needed to be brought up to current standards. Our responsive website design upgrade, which included rebuilding the back end in HTML5 & CSS3 and the addition of “sticky” navigation took less than a month to finish and was the perfect fit for their elegant B&B in historic Port Townsend, Washington.
