The Inn at Red Hills

After a sweeping brand refresh and a professional photo shoot, I created a complementary website and email template for The Inn at Red Hills, a small hotel in Oregon’s beautiful wine country.

CHALLENGES

One minor challenge was to conceal the fact that the hotel is actually on a highway, with no real scenery as one might envision when you speak of “wine country”. This was solved by focusing more on the interior vibe of the inn, and highlighting their employees.

For mobile devices the goal was to make it easy to get to the inn, call them, and/or make a reservation.

SOLUTIONS

The photo shoot focused on lifestyle shots, and the team did a fantastic job of hitting the mark. Great photos make the design phase easier and more fun.

For the mobile view, I created a sticky footer area that was ultimately used as a template for other hospitality and service industry websites. I wanted the user to have instant access to call, map, or reserve a room.
