Daylight Studio

Coeur d' Alene Resort

When The Coeur d’Alene Resort moved to update its website, the Daylight team created a fresh redesign from the ground up that works equally well on any device. The client knew from research that its customers today may visit cdaresort.com first on mobile devices, then on an iPad, before finally perhaps on a laptop.

Site Audit Research

With more types of devices browsing the Web every day, we wanted the site to perform well regardless of the technology used. As part of our research phase, we conducted a complete site audit. We found things to refresh and things to replace. We added new ideas and updated content for multiple screen sizes.

Fuel CMS Managed

By building the site over the FUEL content management system, Daylight gave the client's marketing team the power to update the text, promotions and images, without Daylight assistance or technical training.

Mobile Optimized For Travelers

The result is that every page displays and reads beautifully on smartphones and tablets, as well as full-size computers. In addition, Daylight integrated CDA Resort's social media strategy with the new site, letting visitors share and connect with the latest information, promotions, and feedback.
