Outly, a great UK directory style website. This website is run by a family that required a local website firm to help design a family orientated website for businesses in the UK. The site features are based on simple material aesthetics and centred on an easy to use platform.
Taking into account that there are several big directory sites in the UK alone, Outly wanted a design that was simple and to the point “that is to serve the best style of listings” for any UK business. A kind of Facebook term of design if you will, simple lines, Google material design and the main focus on providing a refreshing listing design for businesses.
Adding listings through the use of an e-commerce system built on WordPress, utilising the Woocommerce framework and listing capabilities to produce an easy workflow that is simple in design, and offers the user a flexible approach to adding a listing to the website. From the outset, we designed a focused dashboard for users to add, edit, and change their listings effortlessly.
Listing directories are notorious for being non-mobile friendly. So our task was not only to provide a superb website on the desktop, but also make the experience on mobile devices equal to that of a user creating listings on the go. The site is 100% responsive, including the user dashboard, listings, commerce and the general feel of the website becomes more of an app without the cost.
Fantastic feedback from our lovely client.
“It has been great to have a local company to help take my ideas, and turn them into the directory site that we wanted. It is a new venture that I hold close to my heart, and the company has understood every aspect we wanted. I look forward to working with you again.”
