Stourport Sports Club Website design brief
Stourport Sports Club has an excellent selection of sports and social facilities and is situated in a convenient location close to Stourport Town Centre. The sports facilities on offer include artificial pitches, athletics track, cycle track, netball dome and tennis courts. They are home to many sporting clubs, especially their sports partners: Kidderminster & Stourport Athletic Club, Wyre Forest Cycle Racing Club, Stourport Hockey Club and Kidderminster & District Netball League. Their clubhouse provides a bar for socialising with drinks and food, as well as facilities for meetings, functions and special occasions.
Gill at Stourport Sports Club was a new manager taking over and she wanted a lot of things revamped including the branding and the website. The old logo was long-standing but dated and the website was no longer functioning and was very outdated. She wanted to show off the full range of services available at Stourport Sports Club, and she hoped to modernise the feel of the facilities.
How I developed the website
The logo was well known in the community and so it would be unwise to change it unrecognisably, so instead of the bright blue and orange and dated typography, it was modernised with a dark navy and gold, with a more contemporary font.
The drone footage was shot and edited by www.bearfootage.com, who created an excellent promotional video showcasing the fantastic facilitates available at the Club. The video was so perfect that it was perfect to include at the hero header of the homepage.
I enjoyed shooting the photographs of the site, and getting the action shots of the experienced hockey players and their coaches, and the cyclists speeding around the cycle track. The images featured heavily in the site, alongside the simplified and condensed information.
Booking forms for function rooms and for sports facilities have made a big difference to the ease of running the sports club, and has streamlined much of the back end work.
“We recently used Bear Left to completely redesign our website and modernise our logo and we are thrilled with the result! They were professional and thorough throughout the whole process and used their knowledge of the industry to make recommendations and suggestions as we went along. The addition of the drone footage added a welcome dimension which sets our website apart from others we have seen. If you are looking for a personalised professional service then choose Bear Left Studio for your business! Gill Edwards, Stourport Sports Club”
