The Remarkable Supplies website went live in November 09.
This dynamic young business, run by Eve Kilvington, aims to supply the Queenstown Lakes region’s many hotels, motels and other hospitality businesses with all their cleaning and packaging supplies. I found it fascinating to talk to Eve about the wide variety of her clients. Remarkable Supplies provides gloves to dentists and beauticians, gift packaging to small goods stores and Eco-friendly cleaning products to accommodation providers and contract cleaning companies.
The website was designed to look sparkly and clean and match their great ‘blue drop’ logo. The content has been kept simple and concise so it’s easy for customers to find what they’re looking for. The usual contact form has been extended into an order form that can be used by existing customers to quickly and easily place orders for products that they need regular supplies of. In the future, all going according to plan, Remarkable Supplies hope to put their entire product offering on-line and provide on-line sales.
I was recently asked to refresh the Queenstown House website for Louise Kiely, one of Queenstown’s most well known residents. Her site has a highly individual look and feel that goes against many of the modern ‘rules’ of web design but it certainly suits her own style. Until recently Louise was a board member of Destination Queenstown and she is still on the board of Heritage & Character Inns of New Zealand so her website and her depth of knowledge of the Queenstown tourist industry has been a very interesting experience for me.
Queenstown House is a boutique hotel very close the the centre of Queenstown itself (only 200 metres away) with luxurious rooms and suites including a honeymoon suite large enough to host your wedding reception. The street that it is on, Hallenstein Street, is low enough to be a fairly easy walk back from the town centre but far enough up Queenstown Hill to get a fabulous view over the harbour and Lake Wakatipu.
