Creating a whole new Westbury Stud experience.

Creating a whole new Westbury Stud experience.

Westbury Stud is one of New Zealand's premiere Stud Farms, spread over two picturesque properties in Karaka and Waikato. Buffalo was tasked with redesigning the website so that content was structured in a more simplified manner. To do this, we categorised information into three main sections: Stallions, Sales and Stud Farm. This allowed us to create a more traditional menu system than their previous website, with less need to scroll down content-heavy sections.

The Challenge: The website brief was to create something different from Westbury Stud's competitors, while still keeping the user experience intuitive. Along with the website, we were tasked with creating a brand video to encapsulate the many facets of life at Westbury Stud.

All content, including video, photos, and copy, is customisable through the backend CMS so that Westbury Stud are able to update content in-house throughout seasonal campaigns. 

The website: we created a hidden menu system to help hero video and photography, and make this the main focus. Full-screen video and photos are able to be changed-out in the backend throughout seasonal campaigns.
