Web Design case study
UL Bohemian RFC is a local rugby club in Annacotty, Limerick with ties to the University of Limerick and the world-famous Thomond Park Stadium. The main function of the website for UL Bohemian was to ensure their rugby community could stay connected in new ways throughout 2021. Through a quick initial consultation with the club, the core features that were desired for the website were determined. It was identified that the website should be used as a community platform whereby club members could stay up to date on the latest news, buy their membership, become a sponsor and find out information on the club squads. It was also important to showcase the U20’s academy and facilities available to members due to long-standing ties with the University of Limerick. The club requested that the website would be “bright, clean and easy to use for people of all ages“.
To Create a new modern look for UL Bohemian RFC while maintaining the club’s branding, we first curated a design using their core club colours; red, blue and yellow. We crafted a design with the request of the site to be “bright. clean and easy to use for people of all ages” in mind. We utilised a ‘ripped’ effect design for the website to illustrate the ruggedness of the sport and durability of the club, while maintaining a bright and clean website. We used high-quality imagery of action-shots and club photos taken by professional sports photographers to ensure the best possible quality of imagery was used for the website build.
