Bonjour Hotels

A beautifully simple website for a new category in the hotel industry.

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.

Strategy

I partnered with Bonjour on the design and development of their new website that was built to attract new users and be accessible to anyone on any device. My 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.

I choose to keep the design simple across the board. With great photography and clear content, storytelling takes the main stage. It was equally important to give attention to the industry knowledge captured in the website copywriting.

Development

My typical web development process consists of three key stages:

Understand the design

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

Create Style-guide & Base Components

Based on the design mockups provided by the client, I quickly developed a basic style-guide that helped me in the development process.

Start the Development

I discussed everything from the overall concept down to the micro-interactions, making sure that everything is feasible in development. As of today, users are using the internet more on mobile than desktops. I needed to design a responsive grid, and a plan to finally develop it. So I leveraged the 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.

Reflection

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

"We have worked closely with Sahil to develop our website. I find it quite interesting how he involves 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. He codes your imagination. I would highly recommend him and look forward to working with him again on future projects."
