“We loved their vibe from day one, and there was an instant understanding that this group of creatives were aligned and excited to help us execute our brand’s vision.”
Funkhaus’ challenge from the start was to design a website for a famous, storied hotel that would feel fresh and timeless. We needed to build a digital platform that could appeal to a broad audience interested in booking a room, hosting an event, eating at a restaurant, or sitting poolside.
We underwent a thorough audit of their existing site architecture and made recommendations to combine sections that had become unwieldy and complex. With infrastructure in place, our designers worked with a color palette inspired by classic Hollywood, pairing gold with two contrasting typefaces to balance modernism with nostalgia. The navigation is smooth and streamlined and the imagery is big and bold.
“Funkhaus’ attention to detail is unparalleled, and their vested stake in our product was so resolute, that through each phase of the design process, they made us feel more and more comfortable and confident knowing their conviction and commitment level to authenticity was always in the forefront. They truly understand how to design for the end user, the consumer.”
The result is a very fluid user experience and one that we view as a standout in the hotel and travel space.
