Posted by Mark Kenneth B. Herrero on Dec 13, 2018 8:30:00 AM

With any business, your hotel's website is there to get customers. While creating and maintaining a website comes at a cost, it's definitely less expensive than commission-based third party services, especially when you consider the value it brings to the table.

With that said, here are some essential tips to make sure your hotel's web design is efficient and your website is performing at its best.

Make sure your website is made with SEO in mind.

These days, SEO should come with any website. However, how optimized a website is becomes more important, and more so for the hospitality industry-related ones like restaurants and hotels.

Why Simple Branding Always Wins

Posted by Jorge Pacheco on Nov 22, 2018 8:30:00 AM

As designers, we consider branding as an emotional feeling. That is why we pay so much attention to a brand as a whole, not only as a logo or a type of font... And this is why we strive to create brands that create a connection with all constituencies in a fast and simple way that does not create indifference because it is too busy or overwhelming.
