Red Kite Flights

My partner and I recently got back from three weeks in the US visiting friends and family (I also did a bit of filming while I was out there, more on that soon), but my last project before we went was setting up a WordPress site for Red Kite Flights, a bespoke hot air ballooning service offering flights in a 4-person balloon (the titular Red Kite) piloted by our friend Peter.

Although WordPress has excellent support and tutorials for the novice user, the world of website creation can be a bit bamboozling for the non-technical amongst us and as he is a busy man and knew that I had a WordPress site myself, Peter asked if I would create a simple, easily navigable site to promote Red Kite Flights with a clean yet attractive design which would not visually bombard the viewer, but make the relevant information easily accessible.

Red Kite Flights is a trading name of The Ballooning Business Limited which has a range of balloons, many of which can carry much larger groups – the site promoting Red Kite specifically was to be a significant stylistic departure from the Ballooning Business’ site, and we decided that it shouldn’t need more than a maximum of four pages to provide all of the required information, and that the aesthetics should be simple yet modern; as you can see from the links above we went for a very different style to the original site!

A nice straightforward project, my favourite kind 🙂
