We were thrilled when we were contacted by a representative of Melissa Doyle to help her out with a new design for her personal website. If you aren’t familiar with who Mel is (which would be very hard to believe), she is one of Australia’s most popular television personalities, co-hosting the number one breakfast show, Sunrise on the Seven Network. Along with her television and journalism duties, she works with numerous charitable causes and is the Number 1 ticket holder for the recent AFL expansion team, the Greater Western Sydney (GWS) Giants. Simply put, you would have a hard time finding anyone in Australia who isn’t a fan of Mel.
The website design and development was a relatively small project in terms of size which most personal websites are. We designed the website to be modern and fresh using a simple pattern in the header with a bright but relatively subtle colour scheme of Peach and Coral which works nicely with the White and Dark Grey featured across the rest of the website. The design needed to include links to her various social networks and charities and we also included a gallery which live updates when ever Mel posts an image using her Instagram account which is a neat little feature. The website also needed to have the capacity to expand and grow which we feel we have accomplished.
