WEBSITE

COMPLETED 2010

SOFTWARE USED:

Based on this incredible story of entrepreneurial vision and drive, the website was designed with the concept of Soweto heritage in mind. The site has an African feel with a few traditional Zulu elements added in to showcase the rich heritage of the landmark and the Owner.

The website was built in HTML and CSS to reach as wide an audience as possible. There are elements of Flash added to give an extra dimension to the site. The flash gallery was built dynamically so that the client can update their images as often as they like.

Since the site had many tourist visitors we had to add language translation functionality to the website. Thankfully Google has a widget that easily translates html text into the available languages which we added to the navigation of the website.
