Case Study: Early’s Bar Website

Early’s Bar is a pub, restaurant and venue on Arranmore Island with a long history of music and craic. The family owned bar have a very strong social media presence but wanted a website to capture their spirit and share some of their legendary stories.

In order to create one cohesive brand for Early’s bar we combined the bar’s nautical elements with a sea blue primary colour and a sandy yellow accent colour for their website.

The final website has a focus on beautiful photography capturing the bar at it’s best. The website scores highly for search engine optimization featuring next generation image formats (webp, where supported).

  • Full brand design and guidelines including scalable logo
  • Fully responsive and touch sensitive website.
  • Simple, typographic headings and gorgeous imagery.
  • Anti-spam contact features and social integrations.
  • Highly performant image gallery.
  • Excellent SEO.

In addition to the website we launched the new brand with a series of colourful posters.

Case Study: Tory Ferry Control Panel

Tory Island is an island of the North West coast of Ireland with a ferry service running multiple times a day. Between weather, tidal and wind changes the Tory Ferry team at Realte Na Maidne needed an app to simplify their timetabling and ticketing challenges.

To complement the mobile app we developed for the Tory Ferry team, we built a web app and API to control the timetables and enable simple ticket management. Timetables are updated and delivered to the app instantly and tickets are managed and customers are notified of any changes via push notifications.

The project is still being regularly updated with contributions from the Tory Ferry team to ensure the daily tasks are quick and easy to complete and all necessary data is available at time.

  • Clean, consistent web app with social authentication for admin users.
  • Timetable database management, including extra ferries, cancellations and reroutes.
  • Stripe integration for collecting data and refunding tickets if necessary.
  • Firebase integration for push notifications for mobile apps.
  • Message database management for signalling to users general service updates.
