Dribs Biddlestone | Website & Logo Design

BJ Creative was tasked by Dribs Biddlestone to build a website for him to allow him to take bookings and for clients to see his availability. Dribs is a ski instructor, he is based in Hintertux, Austria. Rather than constantly field telephone calls whilst on the mountain, he wanted some way that clients could view his availability and block out a session there and then so that when he returned off the mountain all he had to do was accept the confirmation.

Logo Design

As this was meant to be a simple way for Dribs to manage his bookings, the concept behind this did not really involve a great deal of prior research. We knew we wanted to create something catchy and easy to use.

We started with a mountain and the focus on the Dribs name, he is well known in the resort but not too much further afield.

Web Design

As usual, we worked up some static images for Dribs using Fireworks so that we could quickly alter any of the graphics that he was not happy with or wanted relocated to somewhere else. We played with many colours and combinations to get the correct balance for the website and once Dribs was happy, we began the build process.

The Build

We built the site using ASP.NET 4.0 and incorporated a contact page and used Master Pages throughout the site.

The site was initially hosted by BJ Creative on our server so that changes could be amended quickly at our end and this also then enabled us to managed the domains chosen for the website.
