Bringing the Hogarths on-line experience to life
In creating the Hogarths website we wanted to bring the luxurious hotel feel that Hogarths Hotel is known for to an online platform. There's no denying that the website feels 100% Hogarths.
What We Did
Hogarths approached us to create a new website for both their Stone Manor hotel and their Solihull Hotel. Our goal was to bring their website into the modern age and add something that would wow people when they reach the website.
The Icon Set
To give Hogarths the premium feel that we feel they deserve, we created a full icon set that covers the range of services and activities that they offer, an icon set that has a whopping 65 icons in total.
Hogarths are a company with a keen eye for imagery, we were pleased to have access to their portfolio of photography when building their website, the quality of the imagery really put the icing on the cake.
A cinemagraph is a style of video editing that isolates one particular area of a video, allowing it to be animated whilst other parts of the video are rendered completely still, we used cinemagraphs to highlight the best parts of Hogarths.
Although we loved the cinemagraphs and how nicely they highlight the individual aspects that really make Hogarths a great get away experience, it didn’t really cover the grounds, hogarths has a beautiful outdoors area that we just had to highlight with drone footage.
When designing the Hogarths website it was required that we cater to their current choice of two websites, but it was also designed to for future growth. To achieve this we created the hotel selector function, the ability to select a hotel before you reach their respective website.
The Mobile Experience
We always aim to provide the best possible experience websites on every device, we believe that the customer journey should be as fluid and accessible on a mobile as it is on a desktop computer.
Technical - Fast & Secure Cloud Hosting Environment
All of our websites at KIJO are hosted on fast and secure cloud based servers, ensuring that there are minimal to no interruptions to your website up-time.

We loved working with KIJO on the Hogarths website, they did everything they could to produce the best possible website for us, working through the website and explaining how everything functions so we can properly utilise this professionally built masterpiece.
