Quick Summary

NorCal Veterinary Services is a local farm vet that runs in the Wantage & Thame area. They decided that it would be beneficial to them if their website was updated. My goal was to create a modern website which took into consideration their aims and future needs.

The Process

My kayak partner and I began training in the summer of 2017. In November of that year, we secured a place in the schools DW canoe team after paddling the fastest qualifying time of any crew the school had ever had.

We entered the National Schools Kayaking Championships held in Reading and placed 2nd!

We continued to train 2 - 3 times per week with the school throughout the year, despite the awful weather which often included kayaking through ice in the canal.

We completed the Thames training weekend in Marlow which included a long paddle, followed by camping overnight, followed by another long paddle. We had previously been training on the canal, which has no tide or waves.

There are a series of races that lead up to the main DW race called the Waterside races. Unfortunately, due to freezing weather, two of the Waterside races were called off.

Pages

Here, I will discuss the different types of pages needed to complete the website and how I went about making them.

I created a template for the service pages. This ensures that the user experience is as simple as possible. All of these pages included high-quality header images. All of the images on the site were optimised to help keep the site as fast as possible.

Again, referencing back to a previous point, the main goal is to get the user to get in contact with a veterinary branch. The page has all the required information, and there is a very clear call-to-action at the bottom to help funnel the user straight to the contact page. This button is essential to keeping the site constantly focusing on getting the user in contact with a vet branch.

This section is positioned right below the landing page. In the consultation with the client, we discussed about what their customers value about them. Their customers get assigned a specific vet - this helps build up a good client to customer relationship. We decided to keep a meet-the-team section in the new website and give it a modern touch.

This section also allowed the customer to take a deeper look into their assigned vet - and they could also get in contact with their vet directly if needed.

This section helps condense down a few separate sections that the client had on their previous website. It helps keep the new website clean and easy to use. The media hub includes 3 main sections: Farmer Meetings, Newsletters and Useful Links.

We finished strong, securing 4th place!
