Front-end Development

Bonjour is a new category in the hotel industry. They build and manage affordable hotels combining purposeful design with the best essentials, at an unbeatable price.

How did we help?

We teamed up with Bonjour on the development of their new website that was built to attract new users, and be accessible to anyone on any device.We brought a fresh perspective on how to develop a faster and visually stunning website with a simpler user experience.

Research and strategy

The designs for the website was already provided by the client. It was clean, light and intuitive. With great photography and clear content, the storytelling took the main stage. It was equally important to give attention to the industry knowledge captured in the website copywriting.

Our challenge was to develop their new web presence with a simply beautiful website for modern travelers who are mobile, value-conscious, tech-savvy and searching for a better hotel experience that fits their lifestyle.

Our strategy phase involved solving some complex grid and content hierarchy issues, planning modular UI components, and reviewing the whole design system provided by the client.

Development Process

Our typical web development process consists of three key stages:

Understanding the design

The design followed an inviting humane approach through the storytelling process of the website. The client wanted to develop this website with the goal of generating a better connection between the vision of the company and the customers. He wanted to achieve a light and refreshing feeling among the user-base with right combination of visual balance between the layout and imagery.

Creating a design system

Based on the design mockups provided by the client, we quickly developed a basic design system that helped us move faster in the further development process.

Starting the Development

We discussed everything from the overall concept down to the micro interactions, making sure that everything is feasible in development.

As today, users are using the internet more on mobile than desktops. So we needed to design a responsive grid, and a plan to finally develop it. We leveraged Bootstrap framework for a high-quality mobile first experience. Carefully crafted elements of the website ensured a delightful final product, no matter which device you viewed it on.

The result

We’re hugely proud of our partnership with Bonjour, and our role as their external development team. Thanks to their intuitive research and planning, we were able to get to the right direction quickly - developing their website faster.

It was an amazing project for us in terms of learning experience as well as to make our portfolio look strong. It added a real value by improving the quality of our work and actually raising the bar for upcoming projects.

Client Testimonial

"We have worked closely with Creinno to develop our website. I find it quiet interesting how they involve you throughout the process, be it asking us our impression related to our project, or we have imagined something specifically we want it to be part of our project. They code our your imagination. I would highly recommend them and look forward to working with them again on future projects."
