Bankz Hair and Beauty – Responsive Web Design

/ / view a selection from our portfolio here »

Bankz Hair and Beauty is a local salon in Portlaoise with internationally recognised stylists. Downstairs for Hair and upstairs for Beauty. We designed and built their new ‘responsive’ website. Was this the first ‘responsive’ web design for a business in the midlands? We’d like to think so. Responsive websites are designed to perform suitably on the device they are viewed upon – phone, order tablet, prostate monitor etc. If you view this site on a phone, it will look different to when it is viewed on your computer, and again on your ipad, each time optimised to suit the device.

We designed the Bankz logo many years ago when we first moved to Laois. At the time we were based in Portlaoise and Barbara was a neighbour across the road who welcomed us to town kindly with the identity project. The new Bankz premises was built and at the time navy and grey were their preferred colours of the day. Today Bankz is a lot more vibrant, offering a full hair, beauty and private hair-piece service. The website revitalises their identity with pinks, reds and oranges and we hope adds a new dimension to this great salon.

Take a look around the site to see all they have to offer. Give them a call and ‘like’ them on Facebook, they’re great! Good luck with it ladies, we wish you well.
