THE ICENTRIC AGENCY 2016
Newcastle International Airport is an international airport located near the main area of Newcastle. In 2016 it was the 11th busiest airport in the United Kingdom and the second busiest in Northern England, handling over 4.8 million passengers.
Instead of just moving existing website to a new CMS Newcastle Airport decided to update their website. Client wanted a more interactive and engaging website that would be easy to use and navigate.
Due to it's abilities to rearrange without any trouble on different size screens it was decided to use a card layout for all landing pages and a homepage. Use of a tiles in 3 different sizes as well as full width Instagram feed towards the bottom of the page made website less monotone. Inner website pages were kept similar to their previous version, but were adjusted to go with a new look of the website.
The main issue was simplifying a booking panel on the homepage - besides keeping it's functionality it had to stay small, accessible from everywhere and have a possibility to expand if needed. In order to make panel less intrusive we decided to move it to the side of the screen and use icons as a buttons in order to fully open each section.
