I can't believe that it's already April. The daffodils in the garden have come and gone and summer is just around the corner. So, with Spring in full bloom we thought now would be a good time to update you on what we've been up to since we came back from the festive break.

New Website for Visit Peak District & Derbyshire

This site actually launched in Dec '22, but hopefully you'll forgive us for including this one as it's a project we're really proud of.

We are delighted to be working with this iconic destination, and we're pleased with how the new site is performing so far.

We've had great feedback from the client, and received a glowing testimonial from Lindsay Rae, Deputy Director at Marketing Peak District & Derbyshire.

"Having worked with various website development partners over the years, we have been thoroughly impressed by DestinationCore. At every step of the journey, they have shown commitment to delivering a website that was not only innovative and dynamic, but one that would also maximise our important income stream and help us demonstrate that all-important ROI for our valued members and partners.

Embarking on a new website build is often a challenging time but the DestinationCore team made the process enjoyable and exciting. They were knowledgeable, patient, quick to respond and guided us through every step of the process, providing creative solutions along the way and ensuring the site was thoroughly tailored to our needs."

Design Refresh for Metrocentre

We've worked with the team at Metrocentre since 2021. We originally helped them develop a new website after the Intu group went into administration and they had to rebrand in rapid time.

With the pressure off after the initial rebrand they've since had more time to reflect on how they want to present the Metrocentre brand to the world, and we've helped them bring some additional personality to their website.

Metrocentre is the second largest shopping centre in the UK covering nearly 193,000 sq meters. They've had lots of new retailers opening stores in the last few months, and it's been a busy and exciting time for the Gateshead based leisure and retail based destination.

You can take a look at the design refresh here.

Original Shrewsbury Goes Live

At the back end of 2021 the team at Shrewsbury BID got in touch with us about a tender for a new website. We pitched for it, and against stiff competition we won the tender. The website has been a while in the making, but we're pleased with the end result.

The new site went live towards the end of Feb this year, and it's a stunning new look for the market town in Shropshire which sits on the English side of the border between England and Wales.

The website is packed with great user features including the DC Trip Planner and DC Interactive Map, both of which can be found on the homepage.

Multi-site CMS for Legal & General Leisure Portfolio

The final project in our roundup is a multi-site project for Legal & General.

You can check out the all of the sites via the links below. You'll see that each website has a different logo, brand and colour palette, but they all share a common layout. All the sites are managed through one centralised content management system (CMS), which provides real efficiencies for the Savills Place marketing team who manage the website content and marketing on behalf of Legal & General.
