Black Lion Property is based in Kalkan in Turkey. The company started in 2002 and is principally engaged in the sale of Turkish property to foreign, mainly UK, buyers. Black Lion are proud to say that they have the best portfolio of property for sale of any agency in the area; longevity in what is still a relatively new marketplace and; a reputation for honesty, integrity and reliability. They genuinely care about helping clients to realise a dream and change their life for the better.
Black Lion were being penalised because their current website was not mobile friendly. The site had been in place for 11 years without any major structural change and it was time for update. I was also important that the brand remained recognisable to existing clients, they did not want to confuse visitors. They were specific in their requirement for a high quality website to assure buyers and sellers alike that Black Lion are the best.
A clean and contemporary mobile responsive design incorporating the existing branding. The black and white theme used throughout further enforces the brand. Buttons and icons were created the compliment the design. The carefully selected fonts are Georgia for the main headings and the modern Proxima Nova for the body text.
Photographs are key to driving potential customers to take action and make contact. A good visual opening is the shop window of the website. Home page imagery engages the visitor straight away, creating a feel for what it would be like to buy from Black Lion Property and to live in Kalkan. Larger image scrolling galleries showcase properties and the area of Kalkan.
The website is easy to navigate and information is readily accessible. The comprehensive property search enables visitors to quickly find what they need.
