New Craven Hall

New Craven Hall is an industrial urban luxe event space for wedding and corporate hire in the centre of Leeds, West Yorkshire.

Overview and Brief

New Craven Hall (NCH) approached Devign Studios with a pre-existing website which didn’t match the personality of the Venue. We were tasked to create a new modern website which tied into their industrial luxe personality . In particular the requirements for this website were to showcase their offerings. This meant adding the functionality of booking showcase days, incorporate an interactive venue tour and to visualise their events.

Project Work

Devign Studios worked closely with New Craven Hall to discover what they required from their website. Afterwards we created solutions to some of their problems. This included things such as, page load time, brand inconsistency and their user journey.

Secondly we began the initial concept on Adobe XD, this allows our client to see the design prior to the development. After the approval of the design, we moved into the development of the site on WordPress. WordPress is a CMS which is familiar to the team at New Craven Hall.

Finally during the build, we implemented functionality to ensure NCH could edit, upload and maintain their own website. Furthermore, we added functionality for their users to book into showcase days, view the venue in 3d and see their portfolio of past work.

Meanwhile in development, we optimised each page for SEO, page performance and accessibility. Undoubtedly this gave confidence to New Craven Hall that their new website would perform much better than their previous.

Given these points, the team at NCH now have a website with huge potential to outrank their competitors on the likes of Google.

New Craven Hall’s Result

Summing up the project, we created a website which tied in perfectly with the personality of the venue. The website can now be managed by their team internally. This means we removed the need for external website development help. 

New Craven Hall now achieve more bookings through the website and receive on average over 130,000 website hits each month.
