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 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.

what people say
Unlike other web development companies I've dealt with before, Matrix always respond quickly and positively to any feature or design changes we need done to the site. Being able to have things implemented in a timely manner allows us to develop ideas and marketing plans and have them in place at the right times. Also, being able to work with them on digital marketing ideas and processes takes a lot of pressure off us to work out the mine field that online marketing can be.
