The Brief

Barnacles have state of the art hostels in Galway and Dublin. The challenge was to create a website that resonated with a young, cosmopolitan target market and which would convert a high number of visitors into bookings.

The Solution

The Matrix design team were given a very wide licence by Barnacles to create something distinctive and edgy with a modern feel. Large visuals and stylish video content were given huge prominence in the final designs in order to make the website content engaging and stimulating.

In terms of usability, it was important to create logical landing points for their 2 main locations : Galway / Dublin and to ensure that CTA’s ( calls to action ) and booking options were prominent.

The result is a vibrant, visual design which is designed to appeal to a young demographic audience.
