Sunset Bay Resort Responsive Refresh

Today we are excited to share with you a recent project for one our longtime favorite clients Appeldoorn's Sunset Bay Resort on Lake Mille Lacs. They offer year round accommodations for any size group with all the luxuries of your own home. Relax on Mille Lacs and escape to fresh northern air, the cries of loons, and the wonder of a sunset. Mille Lacs is known the world over as a premier walleye and muskie fishing lake. With over 132,000 acres it is the second largest lake in Minnesota. No matter the season you will find plenty to do here.

The Mission

Sunset Bay Resort came to us concerned that visitors to their website were not getting the best experience when browsing using a mobile device. Having worked with us to redesign their website just a few years prior they weren't ready to invest in a full redesign again and were looking for an in-between solution to the problem.

The Outcome

Using Twitter Bootstrap as our framework base we rebuilt the MODX templates and rewrote much of CSS making the current website design responsive without needing to redesign the whole site. This gave them the ability to provide a good browsing experience no matter the device a user was on. Best of all with our process of "reskinning" the site we were able to give them the new web trend features they wanted while saving costs and staying on budget.
