How a simple logo change led to a complete website rebrand

Screenshot of Fly Spain's new website designWebsite Brief

When Fly Spain decided to change their primary colour to blue, this required a complete review of their orange-based six-colour palette, which had various uses on the website. Recognising that mobile visitors now constitute over 55% of traffic, it was time to rethink the page layout and content structure to improve the user experience. Simplifying the messaging necessitated rethinking the colour application, making it the perfect opportunity for a comprehensive website overhaul.

Project Deliverables

Colour Change Impact

With simplification as the main driver, a complete shake-up of the global template was necessary, followed by a review of all key pages on the website. The site had become overwhelming, with content continuously being added over the years. It was time to step back and review the overall impact.

Focusing on Mobile Experience

To simplify the content messaging, we focused on the footer area, which had become quite content-heavy over time. Being a global element, reducing the footer content would decrease page height across the entire site, particularly on mobile devices.

Collaborative Redesign Process

By collaborating with the customer using Figma and CreativeCMS, we were able to take a fresh duplicate of the site and apply drastic changes to the page layouts. This allowed us to review and refine ideas with the customer effectively. Another significant contributor to page height on mobile was the use of right sidebars on the desktop view, which wrapped under the main content on mobile.

The Result

  • Improved User Experience: The new colour palette guides users more efficiently through the site, especially on mobile devices.
  • Enhanced Content Management: Additional features simplify style management for commonly published content.
  • Modernised Functionality: Updating the site to Bootstrap 5 (BS5) quickly enhanced existing functionality, contributing to the website’s contemporary feel.

Conclusion

The redesign successfully simplified and modernised Fly Spain's website, improving user experience across all devices. Future updates will continue to refine and enhance the site’s functionality and aesthetic.
