Estate Agents

The following website designs are all for estate agents. The key was uniting their brands with modern UX practices and clear directions for users to find the types of properties they were looking for quickly and easily. Working with the correct colour palette was also very important, allowing me divide up the information with clarity and continuity and highlight the most important information and links.

Virgo Homes

Virgo Homes are a London based Property Consultancy Firm specialising in substantial portfolio deals, commercial property, student accommodation, residential investment and land for development.

The brand was completely redesigned starting with the logo. The brand needed to have a high end appeal as the company were dealing with wealthy clients and companies. The brief was for the website to be heavily imaged based. This led to the creation of a full screen home page with a central search facility. There property products were simplified into 4 main lines which naturally led to the choice of imagery to be used on the home page.

The imagery was given a heavy grey / blue tint with a blurred background beneath the search facility and using a brighter blue & white as a highlighting colour for text and navigation areas.

Central Property lettings

The website design for central property lettings was organised around two main directions they had already established, houses to let and flats to let. The design was all made centrally with a closed home page that could be opened to reveal secondary information. Being a scarborough based company a beautiful photograph of Scarborough’s distinctive South Bay was incorporated in to the background.

Harris bell had already researched the direction of the home page and needed this vision realising. There poignant pink colour works well for an estate agents and became the central colour to compose the various elements. The main property search navigation was placed centrally and above the main header image.
