About Portfolio

Surrey Outdoor Learning and Development, or SOLD, offers bespoke outdoor experiences designed around the unique requirements of the client. From day visit or residential school trips to adult learning and corporate events, these tailor-made programmes endeavour to challenge the minds and bodies of the participants, helping each individual achieve personal development.

Boasting excellent facilities and experienced staff, SOLD is passionate about outdoor activities and takes a personal approach to learning and development. This flexible service lends the company to a wide target market for venue hire, training, outdoor learning and residential trips in Surrey and beyond.

 

THE CHALLENGE

As SOLD is affiliated with Surrey County Council, with their former web presence limited to a subpage on the SCC website, they wanted to invest in an independent website that would reflect their bespoke approach to outdoor experience programmes. Despite this independence, it was important to allow integration with the SCC website’s CMS.

Our team was tasked with creating a website that not only featured SOLD’s colour scheme, but also contained all important information in a visually-appealing way. In addition to this, website accessibility and navigation were a priority, given SOLD’s affiliation with the SCC.

Incorporating all these features, the website was to have four distinct sections that each appealed to different users:

  1. Schools & Youth Groups
  2. TAZ – The Adventure Zone
  3. Corporate Training & Development
  4. Training Courses

THE SOLUTION

Immediately apparent is how bright and inviting the final result is. With its four distinctive designs to match the different user sections, dynamic functions to add interest alongside the information, and several ways to navigate the site and promote accessibility, we fulfilled all of SOLD’s requirements and added that unique Aelite touch.
